New two bedroom apartment, full kitchen and bath, mountain, lake, meadow views
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 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.

Everything was top shelf and the apartment was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We couldn’t have bee more pleased to have this extra space for our grown children to stay as the house we rented for the holiday weekend did not accommodate all of us. The homemade jam and maple syrup left for us was a wonderful surprise and most appreciated. We will definitely rent again if we are ever back this way.
Thanks for the positive feedback. We were glad you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. Happy holidays!
Beauty spot in Elmore!
This was perfect!
My sister-in-law joined me for a few days of foliage, friends and family in Vermont (not necessarily in that order).
Sharon and Brent have created a stunning living space with incredible views from almost every window. I’m a sucker for the early morning and this apartment was well-suited for my desire to feel a part of the countryside.
We were welcomed with maple syrup and raspberry jam. So sweet, so kind.
As we neared the end of our all-too-brief stay, Sharon invited us to take bags of apples home with us. [Apple baking is on my agenda for Saturday/tomorrow— and I'll get to review all the reasons I should return to Vermont residency.]
The home is within easy walking distance of the Elmore Store. It’s a quiet space that permits beautiful views of the area mountains. For me, with friends and family in Morrisville and Elmore, the location is ideal.
Plenty of space for two couples or a small family. Very comfortable., with beautifully, custom-crafted furnishings and accents. I love the woodwork.
I’m grateful to Sharon and Brent, for their willingness to share their home in the renting of this apartment space.
Beautiful and Convenient Location
We so enjoyed staying here, from the super friendly owners, Sharon and Brent, who live in the main house, to the nearby lake, hiking, and the bike path in Stowe. The apartment is right near to the main house, but is very private and shares gorgeous views of Mt. /Lake Elmore. Sharon left us her homemade raspberry jam, (it's delicious!) and Brent's own maple syrup. Brent built the apartment, and it is lovely~big windows, granite countertops and beautiful wood throughout. We watched him out haying the fields, and my husband thoroughly enjoyed helping out a bit getting it into the barn:) The mattresses were super comfortable, and the linens are soft and smell wonderful! We are very much into cooking, and most of what we needed was in the open plan kitchen. Just sitting with our coffee and watching the turkeys walk through the field, and the low morning clouds hang on the mountain was the perfect reset and wonderful way to start the day. We plan on coming back for sure!!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us in Elmore. Have a great rest of the summer!
Nice apartment with amazing view!
The apartment was very clean and bright and has an amazing view of Lake Elmore and the mountains in the distance. We would stay here again if we're in the area.
Wonderful, cozy, super clean and well appointed apartment
Three old friends had a great weekend at Sharon and Brent's catching up and relaxing. In between x-country ski days at Craftsbury and Trapp's, we relaxed with a lovely snowy view of Elmore Mtn and the lake. For three people, the apartment was perfect. A well appointed kitchen with everything you need, three comfortable beds, and a great living room to enjoy the view and chat about past days. We loved it and will definitely plan to stay again when the next opportunity arises. Thank you!
We are so glad that our apartment provided a good space for your friend's reunion. Take care and enjoy the rest of this snowy winter, which seems virtually endless!
Beautiful apartment, wonderful hosts!
The apartment is beautiful and very well done/decorated. This was our first time staying somewhere with the owners on site. You have a separate entrance and it’s very private. Sharon and Brent are welcoming hosts, and their property is gorgeous. They make their own maple syrup, and it’s so yummy! We were there during a big snowstorm, and Brent was so kind to help as our car got stuck. We were there to ski at Stowe, and it’s about a 40 minute drive. We will be back for skiing and to explore the area during the warmer months. Highly recommend this property!
Yes, you folks had quite an adventure here during the huge snowstorm/blizzard! We are glad that you were so flexible and that your family had a good weekend in spite of the incredible amount of snow we received and the cold temperatures here. Take care and enjoy the rest of the winter.
We are 20 minutes from Stowe and have a lake and state park within walking distance of our rental unit. Downhill, Cross Country skiing and snowmobiling are great winter activities. The lake provides much summer fun including swimming, use of canoes, kayaks and paddleboats. Hiking and walking trails abound. Many cultural and arts events are within an easy drive.
