Nestled in 8 acres of private forest, our B&B style guesthouse offers the cherished rural Vermont experience while being wrapped in modest luxury only 2 mi. from restaurants and shops, minutes from beaches and sunsets on Lake Champlain, a stones throw from vineyards, museums and breweries, a mere 8 miles from Burlington, and 30-45 minutes to top ski areas.

The space
Situated on a tranquil road only 15 minutes from downtown Burlington and nestled in 8 acres of serene forest, our rustic farmhouse, Hearthwood, is designed to be like a charming boutique-style B&B. The house is split up with the guesthouse on one side and our family living separately on the other. The Forest Suite is one of our six elegant and fully private suites (each with its own private bathroom) available for guests to come to relax and rejuvenate. In addition to the suites, there is also a fully stocked gourmet guest kitchen kept filled with a wide variety of DIY breakfast fixings, a dining area, a laundry room with front loader washer and dryer, and a spacious living room for relaxing and dining. We also offer a large selection of indoor board games, outdoor sports games and even yoga mats upon request for your enjoyment while visiting. Guests also have access to our private forest with paths that meander through and expansive lawns with Adirondack chairs and a picnic table for enjoying your morning coffee or afternoon glass of wine. Our spacious suites are each newly renovated with high ceilings and serene forested views. Uniquely decorated with white shiplap, a blend of modern and antique furniture, they are designed to provide the experience of beauty, comfort and ease. Each has a deluxe pillow-top queen-sized bed, hand-scraped maple floors, comfortable arm chairs with throw blankets for journaling or curling up by the enormous picture windows, large closets, dark shades for sleeping in when you like, and tables for working or eating meals privately. They are furnished almost entirely with natural materials including soft cotton duvets, woven wool carpets, linen drapes and wooden hangers. They are also appointed with DirectTV, wireless internet (although not fast enough to stream movies), all linens, and towels.

The Garden Suite is a charming room decorated in serene sea foam green walls with white shiplap and bright pops of color. Southeast facing, it gets heaps of morning sun and enjoys lovely views of the surrounding yard and forest. It has its own private en suite bath classically decorated in white shiplap, subway tile and antique bronze fixtures.

Or feel free to check out one of our other five suites. These include:
Lakeview Suite: Decorated in white, blue and gray, it has large, beautiful windows offering a tranquil view of the forest and the lake beyond. A crystal chandelier to add a touch of extra elegance. It has its own private en suite bath classically decorated in white shiplap, subway tile and antique bronze fixtures.
The Rustic Suite: Decorated in creams, deep reds, golds and blues, this south facing room is the brightest of our six suites with windows on both the south and west sides resulting in wonderful sun throughout the day that will make you want to curl up in front of the window and soak it all in. It has its own private en suite bath decorated in carerra marble-style tile and an antique cherry wood vanity.
Farmhouse Suite: The most spacious of the six suites, it’s decorated in creamy whites and accents of natural earth colors. Being the only suite on the first floor, it is perfect for families with small children or those with physical conditions making it difficult to climb stairs. It has its own private bath located just across the hall with Italian ceramic marble and a massive shower with tumbled stone floor. (A baby tub and pack & play is available upon request for families with infants.)
Forest Suite: Decorated in whites, silver gray and forest greens, this suite wraps you in relaxation with a wall-to-wall window offering panoramic views of the surrounding yard and forest. It has its own private en suite bath classically decorated in white shiplap, subway tile and antique bronze fixtures.
Sunroom Suite: Although the smallest of the suites, we consider the Sunroom our crown jewel. With two entire walls of floor to ceiling windows overlooking the rolling lawns and forest, an antique carerra-marble topped dresser, and a wall of classic white shiplap, it will surround you with charm. Its private ensuite bathroom is done in sky blue with white porcelain fixtures.

Since each suite is fully private with its own bathroom, lounging chairs, wifi access, satellite television and table for working or dining, it's completely your choice whether to spend time on your own or hangout in the common areas meeting some of our other wonderful guests. Either way, we invite you to come and enjoy your time in Vermont with us here at Hearthwood for a relaxing and rejuvenating getaway.

Where you’ll be

Charlotte, Vermont, United States

Charlotte and Shelburne (we are located on the border between the two) are some of the most picturesque towns in all of Vermont. Here, you'll find exquisite views of forests, farms, both the Green and Adirondack mountains and breathtaking Lake Champlain. Vineyards and microbreweries abound along with artisan restaurants, historic Vanderbilt properties, charming shops, antique and art galleries galore. For the adventurers, there are hiking trails, nearby options for cross-country and downhill skiing, boating and swimming, bike paths along the lake, horseback riding and so much more. Yet with a mere 3,500 people in Charlotte, you are granted the experience of true tranquility surrounded by nature while only 15 minutes from the city.
