Charlotte is a small town in the Champlain Valley with a population of about 3,500 residents. Founded in 1762, the landscape consists of many hills and valleys overlooking Lake Champlain and the mountain vistas all around. Over 50 square miles, Charlotte's spacious, open land is dotted with farms of all types; vegetable and berry farms, wineries, and livestock. An hourly ferry leaves McNeil Cove from Charlotte across Lake Champlain to Essex, NY for a pleasant escape out of town.

Dream location

Home to Vermont's first and oldest official state park, Mount Philo Park, a small camping area of only ten sites provides seclusion and solitude in a rural setting. The park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its recreational history and bountiful old architecture spread across the town center, some of which date back to the founding of the town. Charlotte is not only stunning, but it is also a great small town for making new friends, having a picnic in the park, or swimming in the crystal clear waters. Its hiking and biking trails and small, off-road vehicles offer miles of wilderness to explore. The Charlotte Park and Wildlife Refuge is dedicated to preserving local wildlife undisturbed in their natural habitats.
