Appletree Bay house description
Lake Champlain Sandy Beachside Camp in Burlington
Now renting Summer 2014 ($3500/week - Sat to Sat)
This very well located but private Cape Cod style rustic camp was built in 1935 and has been in our family since 1937. It has a 100 foot private beach and is a fun and relaxing place for a family vacation. Those that have had the opportunity to come stay before always want to come back.
Upstairs it has two big bedrooms(these sleep up to 4 with a queen and two singles or twins in each) and a half-bath. Downstairs it has two bedrooms (with two twin beds each) and a full bath (plus living room, dining, kitchen and back room with extra fridge). It has a screened in porch that seats about 8 looking out over the water and outside picnic table(s).
The house has an outside shower (great for a post-swim rinse off or kid showers), boat ramp, nice sandy beach and sandy bottomed swimming area. Its sandy for about 300 feet out and gets deep gradually (prime territory for little ones - the near shore water can get well over 80 degrees on sunny days). The width of the beach varies from short (or no beach if the lake level is very high from snow run off and spring rains) at the beginning of the summer to up to 100 feet by the end of summer. Amount of beach and water level depends on winter snowfall and spring rains.
There is great small mouth bass fishing but I can't tell you where (family secret). It has a wonderful view down the lake, of sailboats, the Burlington Ferry and to Juniper Island. Its a two mile boat ride to the Burlington Ferry docks or you can take the bike path about three miles. Great swimming and water-skiing in the bay. The bay is one and a half miles wide. Oh, and good views of the Burlington 4th of July fireworks.
It's on 2/3 of an acre with parking for five cars and boat trailer space.
There is also a small 1 bedroom/1 bath cabin on the property on the water next to the main house (see picture) available for an additional $150/night. This cozy spot is ideal for the couple that wants to be away from the fray in the big house some of the time. The cabin has a full bath and a small kitchen with a queen bed (full electricity, utensils, sink etc.) and is 260 square feet.
Dogs: If you wish to bring a dog we would like to hear about the animal's training and temperament. Please send a description of the breed. Only well-behaved dogs are allowed. The dog must be kept under leash or voice control at all times and off the furniture (no dripping dogs inside please). Only one dog is allowed. No dogs are allowed in the Cabin. The dog, if approved, costs $200/stay plus $200 refundable deposit. Unfortunately, we've had trouble with some dogs in the past.
Damage deposit: The refundable damage deposit is $500 (due with your reservation).
A written lease agreement will be sent to the renter for signature.

Within 7 day grace period - only transaction fees; $250 for Day 8 from reservation until 91 days before the start of your rental; $500 61-90 days before your reserved start date, $1000 41-60 days before your reserved start date, half of the total rent plus security deposit 22-40 days before your reserved start date and full rent plus deposit for cancellations 21 days or less from your start date.

Appletree Point cottage in Burlington, VT.
Appletree Point cottage in Burlington, VT.
We had a family of 10 for 2 days and then 9 for the rest of the week with 4 children ages 5,7,14 and 17. It was a great time in spite of the heat wave that hit Burlington at that time. Although the Lake Champlain water was high because of previous rains, all of us could easily get into the water with its fine sandy bottom. It was easy to launch our kayaks and canoe for several pleasant rides in the bay. We especially enjoyed the outside table for supper and the screened porch at all times. Many of us are cyclists and we enjoyed the proximity of the magnificent Burlington Bike Path and Colchester Causeway into Malletts Bay ( Island Line Trail). There were adequate cooking and dining utilities and a very good dishwasher as well as a handy updated washer and dryer. Many enjoyed the outdoor shower. The listing description was accurate. The photos reflected the rental's appearance. The property was clean and maintained as well as possible for an 80 year old facility. The owner was very responsive to our questions and concerns. We recommend the property. The proximity to Burlington's amenities is very good. A large supermarket is within a mile. North Beach with a beach, lifeguard, paddle board rentals, accessible parking and a snack bar are within 2 miles. There is good shore fishing access at the nearby Winooski River and Burlington fishing pier.

About the owner: We love to spend time with family. At this house, we see so many relatives and enjoy great times and reunions together. The house offers simplicity -- no granite countertops here, just an easy going house to share wonderful memories together.
Why the Owner Chose Appletree Bay:
Great for all ages. Calm clean water with no undertow makes it especially nice for the little ones Sandy beach and shallow sandy bottom for as far as you can walk out into the lake. The house is also convenient to the bike path that takes you right into downtown Burlington.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Wonderful family friendly house to enjoy time together and fun on the beach. Try water skiing or tubing. Perhaps a little fishing. After a long day in the water having fun, fire up a lake side campfire on the beach and toast some s'mores!
