Our Summer Season is Officially Upon Us So
Come and Visit us in East Burke Village
Welcome to my website. I would like to tell you a little about myself and this area of Vermont known as the Northeast Kingdom. I grew up in East Burke and started skiing on Burke Mountain soon after I could walk. My Great Grandfather, Grandfather and Father all spent much of their lives running a lumber mill here in East Burke Village by the Dam, so upon building my first office by the dam, it seemed appropriate to name it Burke Mill Properties.
Wow, what great news that JAY PEAK has purchased Burke Mt. I think this will be a great thing for all of us, and the additional snow making they are planning to do will lengthen our ski season dramatically.
I have been selling real estate for the past 30 years and have had my own business for the last 20 years. We just finished building a new office on the right as you come into the village of East Burke. It is very exciting to be in a new and beautiful space. We are located 5 miles north of Exit 23 on Interstate 91, and that makes Burke very easy to get to from many suburban areas.
My husband came to this area to teach at Lyndon Institue and ended up taking the position as Ski School Director at Burke Mountain, where we met and taught and coached skiing for many years. Our 4 children were all ski racers and still enjoy skiing today. They have left the area and reside in Alaska, Idaho and Hong Kong. We definitely tried to give them wings. Some people ask me what I did to make all of my children move so far away from me. Having grown up in Vermont, they all have an appreciation and thirst for the great out doors and lots of adventure. When they come home to visit, however, they always comment on how beautiful it is here.
East Burke has been a quiet little ski village for many years and those who found us are continuing to come back every year. Burke offers 2000 feet of vertical drop and some great meandering, old fashioned ski trails as well as some great fall line terrain. Every year the terrain park for snow boarders improves and in the 2009 season it was one of the busier spots on the Mountain. Burke offers very affordable pricing for family skiing.
In the Spring, Summer and Fall we have become world renowned for our "single track" mountain biking trails and the organization called Kingdom Trails. We are seeing people from all over the world come here to enjoy our little corner of paradise. Many come here for the Mt. biking and learn that there is a ski area here as well, and the young professionals and young families, like my own children, are excited about buying property here and enjoying that year round recreation.
I look forward to introducing you to our area and helping you understand all of the things that we have to offer. My goal is to provide you with a professional service, great integrity and an individual attention to the details of your hopes and dreams in finding the right piece of property in the Northeast Kingdom. Drop me an email or give me a call. I will look forward to meeting you and working with you.
