Bridport house description

Spectacular three-bedroom, three-bath, three-level lakefront house (sleeps 10). Gorgeous views up lake to Lake Champlain Bridge and Adirondacks. Beautiful, end-of-road location with 2 1/2 acres in Bridport in convenient central Vermont, 14 miles west of Middlebury. Close to wide range of activities and attractions. PLEASE SEE OUR PERSONAL WEBSITE FOR THE HOUSE AT THE LINK LISTED BELOW 'RATE DETAILS' AND 'VIEW CALENDAR'.

Wonderful year round home, the ideal location for your summer vacation and also winter activities including ice fishing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, relaxing etc. Close to Middlebury, Vergennes, Bristol etc. for fine dining and shopping.

Perfect place to stay while visiting Middlebury College students and/or attending events such as parent's weeks, orientation, mid-year and May graduation. Also plenty of room for family reunions.

The adjacent cozy cottage owned by my brother, also overlooks the lake and is a separate property and can be rented by itself or with the main house. The cottage has its own stair to the beach and its own dock. It has been remodeled and is available to rent separately or as part of the main house. This is a fully furnished “vintage camp” and has a well equiped kitchen/living room, enclosed sleeping/eating porch, bathroom and a detached bunk house. A large deck off the enclosed sleeping porch overlooks the lake. Will sleep up to 6 people. Please go to VRBO listing No. 179306 for additional info.

Duane grew up in Bristol, Vermont with Vermont ancestors from has far back as anyone can track and is an Architect. Ended up in San Diego in 1976 after going to College in Boston and Tempe, Arizona. My entire family still lives in the Bristol area. Lyndon is a 5th generation Californian on his fathers side and grew up in Bishop, California. On his mothers side, his Great Great Grandfather came across the country from Stowe, Vermont in a covered wagon in the mid 1800's and his Great Great Grandmother sailed from Delaware by way of the horn of South America about the same time and both settled in Independence, California where they met when it was still pretty much the wild west. He works in social services. Roxy is a rescue from an area close to the Mexican border. She has flown back to Vermont about 6 times so far and loves the rural living.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bridport:
                  Some of my fondest memories growing up in Vermont were the times spent at our Lake Champlain camp my family owned with 3 other families and remained my favorite place on earth. It was always a dream of mine to buy a place on the lake. We have spent much of our time on our bi-yearly visits making improvements on the house as well as enjoying time with family and friends and many wonderful gatherings at the house for birthdays, reunions, Holidays etc.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The end of the road location makes for a relaxing and quiet refuge amongst nature and the wonderful lake and mountain views from most of the house. These were very important in selecting a place on the lake. The limited number of camps along the lane also make it possible to interact with others enjoying this bucolic spot surrounded by quant villages, dairy farms and country roads. The close proximity to Middlebury and other towns in the area make for unlimited possibility for interesting things to do and see.
