Elmore Real Estate

Elmore is a quintessential Vermont town — a quaint village on the shore of Lake Elmore, with a general store and historic church surrounded by agricultural fields, forested hills and mountains, and miles of gravel roads winding throughout.

The town was named for Colonel Samuel Elmore, a landowner, and contains East Elmore, Lake Elmore and Elmore State Park, a 700-acre recreational area surrounding the 219-acre lake. Elmore State Park is a popular, developed recreation facility with tent and lean-to sites, bathrooms, a defined beach area and beach house, boat rentals and hiking trails leading to the top of Elmore Mountain and the fire tower.

According to the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation, the town calls itself “The Beauty Spot of Vermont.”

According to the Elmore Town Plan, Elmore has grown and changed over the years from an agricultural and forestry community with a few small village centers, to a recreation town centered around Lake Elmore, to a growing bedroom community developing on the many back roads. 

Residents generally work in other towns, but live in Elmore to enjoy country living close to recreational amenities and away from the hustle-and-bustle of the cities and suburbs. Protecting and maintaining the character and charm of Elmore is important to the future of the town.
