 Unpack & Unwind

From log cabins with WiFi to renovated farmhouses, you'll find all types of lodging in and around Burke.

Hawk Rock Cabins features 5 beautifully furnished cabins with 1 - 4 bedrooms and full kitchens.  The cabins are located on 2,600 private, wooded acres so it's a perfect spot for a country getaway while being just a quick drive to the trails and lakes.

New on the vacation rental market is Blakes Cape, nestled on the edge of the sugarwoods in West Burke.  This 3 bedroom house has a full kitchen and a spacious sun room.  It's just a short drive to Lake Willoughby and Kingdom Trails.

Enjoy a stay at an  1820's farmhouse, located just 3 miles from East Burke. The Farm House at Tempson Barn was recently remodeled and offers 2 bedrooms, a full kitchen, pastoral views, and plenty of privacy on a 100 acre farm.

The Wildflower Inn, located on picturesque Darling Hill Road, offers a great package to make planning your trip easy as pie.  The Pedal, Paddle and Pamper deal includes 3 nights lodging, Kingdom Trails passes, a half day paddle on the Clyde River, a picnic lunch, voucher for dinner at Juniper's Restaurant, and a $100 voucher for a spa treatment.

If you prefer days with your toes in the sand and swimming in glacial waters, Lakeview Cabins on Crystal Lake may be your summer home away from home.  One and two bedroom cabins include full kitchens and the property has a playground, volleyball court, picnic areas, and boat launch as well as a peddle boat and canoe for guest use.

  Deal of the Month

Need another reason to dine out at the Burke Publick House beyond the great food, atmosphere, craft cocktails, and 20 or so brews on tap?  How about half price bottles of wine on Thursday nights and you can even enjoy it at the new Outdoor Bar space?  Who knows, there may even be some live music, too.

Celebrating Independence!

Vermontahs are known for their independent, entrepreneurial spirits and in these parts, you'll find plenty of places where you can show your support for local artists, craftspeople, farmers, makers of specialty foods, and other fo lks carving their own path.  

Definitely pay a visit to the NEK Country Store  for lunch or some penny candy and p eruse the  shelves for everything from Maple Syrup and jams to wood carvings, hand-knit items, local photography, and much more. 

It all started at Burke Mountain Academy for local hat designer and founder of Skida, Corinne Prevot.  Y ou'll find these colorful hats,  bandanas, and headbands at many local shops, online, and adorning many heads in Burke and beyond.

Just down th e road from the Village is Sanderson's Wooden Bowls where you'll find Sam & Weeza happy to welcome you to their home,  farm, and studio where they hand-turn wooden bowls from local hardwoods.  Of course, you must also meet their adorable donkeys and Dwarf Nigerian goats.

Local painter, Chuck Guest, showcases his award winning artwork at his flooring shop just outside of the village.  Chuck's abstract paintings are on stretchers made in Vermont from reclaimed woods and his work features images of nature and the ocean.  

Over in Sutton, you'll find some amazing home decorating options at High Beams Lighting.  Lamps are made of copper and brass while intricately designed shades feature real botanicals.

Art & Food do go well together and you'll find lots of made in Burke specialty foods to enjoy including delectable chocolate truffles from Burke Mountain Confectionery  (look for the big moose and yellow house just north of East Burke Village).    

Over on the Mountain Road, Auntie Dee Dee's little bakery is full of hugely amazing delights including croissants, cookies, scones, and specialty sandwiches featuring local produce, cheeses, and homemade bread.   
And, beer, of course!  Whether you're chilling after a day on the trails or just chillin', a visit to Next Trick Brewery is always in order.  Stop in for a tasting or bring home a crowler to enjoy on the porch.   On  select days, you can also enjoy dinner from a local food truck parked out front.
