The Lake Champlain Islands are a summer destination nonpareil, and North Hero, Vermont is arguably the most popular of the four famous towns near the Quebec border. With splendid natural wonders, miles of pristine coastline, and a small-town populace that is eager to please, it's no wonder North Hero gets accolades from anyone who visits. Our North Hero vacation rentals offer the perfect place to enjoy all this gorgeous area has to offer.
Founded by nearly 400 Revolutionary War vets - also known as the Green Mountain Boys - in the late 1700s, North Hero has long been a popular vacation spot for New Englanders in the know. Visitors enjoy beautiful beaches, lush farmland, immaculate green spaces, and picture-perfect mountain vistas - both the Green Mountains and Adirondacks are at your doorstep. You can grab a picnic and head to the state park to enjoy a nosh while watching the waves lap the beach. Or take a hike to nearby Pelot's Point Wildlife Area or Knight Point State Park. In North Hero, you're never far from clean mountain air and natural delights.
Like its sister Lake Champlain Islands, North Hero doesn't have a ton of historic sites. Still, there's enough to see to keep you occupied. North Hero State Park boasts nearly 400 acres of pristine land abutting Lake Champlain, featuring white-tailed deer, mallards, ruffed grouse, and American woodcock. Kayakers and paddle boarders head to Holcomb's Landing every summer and Labor Day features an annual bridge jump. Looking for sundries amid vintage ambiance? Hero's Welcome is a century-old store off a pier on Lake Champlain that sells a variety of Vermont-based goods. It's a good place to go if you forgot your sunscreen, and want to pick up a fantastic souvenir.
