vacation with 14 month old baby first week in september

Hi--we are one couple with a baby traveling the first week in September. Looking to rent a condo/townhouse/cabin somewhere quiet enough to be "towny" but busy enough to find some trustworthy babysitting during the evenings and some days. I was trying to find out more about lake Champlain but not sure exactly where to go. Any insights are appreciated!! Thank you.

We have a 5 year old and have never used a babysitter service while traveling, so my advice is limited. However, I can't imagine many places in Vermont offering a babysitter service other than a few very upscale hotels/resorts. Other than that, I think you'll be looking on CL and can't imagine anyone would want to do that in a strange place.

Off the top of my head, try:

we often traveled with a "nanny" on vacation. A neighborhood teenage child who got a free vacation in exchange for some babysitting duties. It looks like stratton mountain has a preschool/daycare which your child would qualify for

We vacationed many times with our kids in summer and winter and loved being on the mountain. There is a village, restaurants, golf, tennis, close to Manchester and other day trips and very relaxing place to stay. Lots of condo/townhouse options. I would not be surprised if there were people who baby sat at night as well and would trust them if they were either employed there or recommended by Stratton.

This may or may not be the kind of place that appeals to you; it has childcare included for six weeks old and up:
