About Sharon Fortune

We bought this house when it was a run down dilapidated old farmhouse, it is over a hundred fifty years old. During the last 30+ years we have completely rebuilt the house, adding a barn and maple sugarhouse and most recently a large addition including our vacation rental apartment on the second floor of the new structure. We are retired teachers who raised our children here. Our kids attended the Elmore One Room School, the only one room school remaining today in Vermont! Brent works the land cutting hay, producing maple syrup, and growing vegetables, berries and flowers. We raise chickens and have a few beef cattle. We love our farmstead in quiet, beautiful Lake Elmore!

Sharon Fortune purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Sharon Fortune chose Lake Elmore

The house was originally purchased with a small amount of land, then subsequently we bought the remaining 34+ acres which surround our home. We are on a quiet, dead end town road which affords beautiful views and privacy, yet we are very close to Elmore village, the state park and lake.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of our farmstead is so beautiful, with meadow, mountain and lake views. Every season affords its own beauty. The views from the deck in the apartment are breathtaking. Our location is ideal as we are close to Stowe and Montpelier and only an hour from Burlington.

Beautiful, peaceful, quiet, yet close to everything. The perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with our 2 year old absolutely loved everything about this place. Don’t waste money on a hotel when you can stay in a beautiful place like this and have a whole cabin/apartment all to yourself! This was a great place to come back to and relax after spending our days in Stowe, Waterbury and Burlington. Sharon and Brent are great hosts! They are very helpful and hospitable, making sure you have everything you need and are comfortable for the length of your stay. We were welcomed with awesome homemade maple syrup and raspberry jam made by Brent and Sharon! They make you feel as if the whole propery is yours to enjoy at your leisure. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking to explore Vermont. We will definitely be staying here again in the future!

Clean, Comfortable and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Sharon and Brent were great hosts. Their apartment was clean, comfortable and quiet. We had everything we needed for our week long stay. The fall foliage was near its peak. From the deck, we had a great view of the mountains, Lake Elmore, and the cows grazing near the apartment. The location was perfect for taking scenic day trips to historical sites in the area: Fort Ticonderoga, Shelburne Museum, Lake Champlain Maritime Museum and the Calvin Coolidge Homestead.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of four adults and an infant staying at Sharon and Brent's lovely home. Their apartment was bright and spacious and had everything we needed. The views from every room are beautiful- I imagine the views would be splendid no matter the season. If you are visiting in time for labor day- the deck has a fantastic view of the fireworks!

Sharon & Brent- thank you for your hospitality. We hope to visit again!

A perfect vacation for all activities!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with Sharon and Brent. The apartment is beautiful, clean, and comfortable. We brought our two small children who enjoyed their tree swing, sandbox, the tractors, and beautiful gardens. We ate dinner out on the picnic table by the cows overlooking the mountains and the lake. Perfect location to the lake and hiking trails. Sharon and Brent are friendly and welcoming hosts, even left us homemade maple syrup and raspberry jam.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was perfect. It was exactly what we wanted - peace, quiet and a beautiful view.

The apartment is beautiful and had everything that we could possibly need. The maple syrup and blackberry jam were the best that we every had. Sharon and Brent are very welcoming and we enjoyed talking with them. We will definitely stay here again.
