Property description

This lake view cottage has all of the modern conveniences of home with beautiful Lake Champlain views. The kitchen has been recently renovated with new wood floors. Our cottage is located 25 minutes from Burlington on Mills Point in Colchester, Vermont. It is conveniently situated near the Burlington bike path and the Colchester causeway. Lake access is across the road where the water is clear and shallow enough for young children. There is a mooring available for your boat and a rock beach for sunning. The community of Mills Point is friendly and welcoming.

The Fall foliage is spectacular both on the Point and in the area. There are amazing scenic drives into the mountains around Stowe and beyond. There is lovely mountain hiking nearby and natural areas within walking distance. In the summer you can pick strawberries and blueberries and in the Fall apple picking is available.

Owner info

About the owner: I lived in Burlington for 27 years before moving to Boulder, Colorado. I raised 3 children in Vermont and still consider it my home.

Why the Owner Chose Colchester:
Our property is unique in that our community of neighbors is special. Many of the folks on Mills Point live here year round. They are friendly, kind and generous and I consider myself lucky to be able to come home to such a place.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Mills Point is close enough to Burlington to feel cosmopolitan and far enough away to feel like a getaway. I love my cozy home on the lake and look forward to spending more time here in the future. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as I do.
