Property description

(From August 3rd through Sept 3rd there is only one cottage available)
The Sandy Beach Cottages are two charming, renovated 1920's cottages occupying the same lake front property. They share a deck with a bar-b-Que and outdoor seating, sandy beach with fire pit and the beautiful views of Malletts Bay, Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks of New York State. Fronting the cottages is a beautiful white sand beach that allows easy access into the lake. Each cottage features a full frontal screened-in porch, two bedrooms, full bath, full kitchen, living room and access to the bike path right across the street. Swimming, sailing, boating, fishing, sunning and any other water sport are easily accessible from the cottages. The cottages are perfect for two families vacationing together or a large group.
Use of two Kayaks are included. Fishing poles and beach toys on site. Mooring is available for boats.

Enjoy a breathtaking sunset over beautiful Lake Champlain from the porches of these charming lake cottages. Build sandcastles, swim, kayak or boat the day away. Jump on the bike path across the street and ride to the nearby park which includes skateboarding and tennis or ride out over the lake and take the bike ferry across the islands. Don't forget to duck into Mazza's farmstand for fresh vegetables, fruits and yummy homemade pies. A late night fire on the beach with s'mores is the perfect way to end the day.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Our family first moved to Colchester in 1971. Presently, both sons still reside in the Burlington area with Jamie Rozzi the proprietor of Rozzi's Lakeshore Tavern located right around the corner from the cottages.

Why the Owner Chose Colchester:
Our interest in this property was its location, a private beach setting while still maximizing the benefits of the Burlington area.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There are only a handful of properties that actually have a sandy beach to utilize in Malletts Bay. The fact that we only traverse five steps is truly unique in this area. A great view and a great beach. Add a small fire pit and we enjoy the property both day and night.
