As Vermont's second-largest town by population, Colchester covers a wide area of land just north of Burlington and is home to St. Michael's College, Vermont Public Radio, numerous shops and one of the last drive-in theaters in Vermont. Located along the I-89 corridor, Colchester is within minutes of the Burlington International Airport, rail and bus stations.
One of the biggest draws to the area is beautiful Lake Champlain - Colchester has more lake frontage than any city or town surrounding the lake. Here you will find one of the most picturesque spots on the lake, Malletts Bay. Sailboats dock at the five area marinas in the summer, providing stunning scenery for the gorgeous lake sunsets. Being on the lake provides access to plenty of water sports including water-skiing, sailing, fishing, swimming and stand-up paddle boarding.
Outdoor activities don't end with the lake, there are 11 parks and natural areas in Colchester that offer residents and visitors lots of recreational options. One of the most unique spots is the Causeway Recreation Path that extends 4 miles across Lake Champlain and provides fantastic views for walkers and bikers.
Colchester real estate features an incredibly diverse selection of homes and properties--from multi-million dollar estates on Lake Champlain to affordable homes in quiet wooded neighborhoods.
