Cozy Home in Lovely and Award-Winning Small City of Burlington, Vermont near Beautiful Lake, Mountains, a few hours drive from Boston, Montreal and New York City.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR A 1 WEEK EXCHANGE FOR DECEMBER 2018 AND 1-4 WEEKS FOR SUMMER 2019 - ALSO OPEN TO SHORT-TERM WEEKEND EXCHANGES ANYTIME.

Burlington is an award-winning small city located on Lake Champlain between the Green Mountains of Vermont and the Adirondack Mountains of New York.   Burlington is known for it's great downtown (http://www.churchstmarketplace.com/), lakefront, festivals and community events, outdoor activities including biking, hiking, swimming, kayaking, sailing, boating, golfing & windsurfing abound, plus a lively arts & music scene. Burlington has been ranked as a top 10 US small city, great place to live, healthy and walkable city. Burlington also has a great farmer's market and local farm-to-table restaurants. Vermont is a state in New England, in the Northeast of the U.S., with much outdoor beauty, good food, unique small towns and cities, and of course, the home of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream.

By car, we are just over 1.5 hours from Montreal, 3.5 hours from Boston and 5 hours from New York City (1 hour flight).  The airport in Burlington is 10 minutes from our home.

Our home has 3 bedrooms and can easily sleep 6. We have 2 newly renovated bathrooms and kitchen and a good-size backyard. One car, 3 bicycles, windsurfer and kayak can be available as part of the exchange.

We have had wonderful exchanges in Scotland, France, Oregon and Colorado. We are a family of 3. Dawn works in non-profit community development. Darren is a wellness therapist specializing in myofascial release. Zoe is a college student. We love to travel and explore, as a couple, and a family.

From TripAdvisor "Vermont's largest and perhaps most cosmopolitan city, Burlington beckons with the perfect blend of old New England charm, arts, culture and nature. Burlington is one of those places you can't help but fall in love with. During the spring and summer, the streets come alive with festivals and outdoor concerts. The picnic benches, playground and bike paths...are filled with warm weather revelers, and opportunities to swim, fish or just kick back on the beach abound. Church Street Marketplace, with its early 1900s architecture, great restaurants, live entertainment, one-of-a-kind shops and well-known stores, is the focal point of the downtown area. Anytime of the year is a good time for chocolate. Be sure to stop by Lake Champlain Chocolates for a tour and taste."
