My husband and I are considering moving near e. burke. We were hoping someone could tell us a little about the community. Are there young families in the area? Thanks!

Have work there already? Have you been there? Burke is a small place, and good paying work is not so readily found.

Nice little ski town. It's handy to Lyndonville & St. J. Maybe you'll be working in one of those towns?

I'd have to argue that it is a nice quanit little Mountain Bike Town as they are 3-4x's as busy during the MTB season than ski season.

Nice town, intimately familiar with it.

Burke Mountain is popular with the Lyndon State College kids. The NEK is a great area if you have employed lined up or are self-employed. Demographics- a good mix by VT standards with a higher percentage of younger people as well as older people mixed.

It's a nice area but can be isolating for some people. The secondary schools in the area are fantastic - Lyndon Institute and St. Johnsbury Academy. I THINK kids from Burke have school choice at the high school level. Most of the kids go to Lyndon. There is a also a prestigious private ski academy in town - Burke Mountain Academy.
Ditto the work question - what do you plan to do for income? If you plan to telecommute make sure that high speed internet access is available to you. Some places in this area are still not wired and rely on satellite internet which, from what I understand, can be very spotty.
