                            We stayed in late February so didn't get to make use of the extensive collection of water equipment, but the skating and ice fishing were great, and the house was exactly what one could hope for. The ten of us were completely comfortable in the spacious bedrooms upstairs, and loved the spiral staircase which led down to the enormous living room/kitchen and dining room area below which would have been large enough for a group twice our size. The house had everything we could want, was clean, warm, and boasted beautiful views of the lake from nearly anywhere you stood inside. The only issues were a quick heating system outage which was fixed within the hour of reporting it (simply had to push the reset button so that's probably our own ignorance) and an icy driveway, which were very minor issues in the scope of a great vacation. The owner was highly attentive and responsive to email inquiries and deposit was returned right away. Had a great time and would definitely return again.

                            "Excellent house" Stayed at this house for a week with the family and could have quite happily stayed for longer.The house is as described and is well equipped.The facilities outside are excellent too with two boats and a lovely dock to sit and watch sunrise/sunsets from aswell as the picnic table and swing bench. This house is within easy reach of many attractions in Vermont and New York State. Would definately stay again

                            The issues with this property are as follows: - Stench of mold and mildew unbearable. Extreme moisture (humidifier to be emptied 5-10 times per day, cannot open lower floor windows - no screens. - Mouse droppings in kitchen cupboards, piled behind beds and bedroom corners - Dog excrement all over the lawn when we arrived (someone came to clean it up) - Worm-like insects all over lower floor bathroom - Extremely dirty floors, baseboards, windowsills - Mildew and stench on shower curtains - Food in dishwasher when we arrived, dishwasher did not adequately clean our dishes - Most chairs outside were broken - Supplied life jackets are too dirty to use - Inside of fridge and freezer not clean - Inside oven is very dirty, when used causes burning smell and smoke - Table cloth covered in dried food when we arrived - Electrical outlet in bunk bed room burn out and an EXTREME safety hazard - Screened in porch unsafe - would be very easy for toddler or small child to push through the loose and broken screening and fall. - Deck is unsafe for kids - gaps in vertical spindles VERY wide - Pots and pans should be thrown out and replaced. Not acceptable. This renter charges a cleaning fee but this house has obviously not been cleaned in quite some time. Someone appears to change the sheets and put out clean towels. We were not comfortable showering in this house. I petitioned to have my cleaning fee returned to me and it was. I asked for part of my rental fee to be returned but the owner did not even acknowledge that request. I don't know who has left the positive reviews for this property but they do not seem to reflect the same house I stayed in. Also be aware this house is on a very busy, noisy road, and the path to the water is steep and gravelly. Very slippery. Even if this house were in acceptable condition, it is not suitable for small children. My fellow travelers and I did not feel that this house was in an acceptable condition to be rented. This property is NOT as advertised. We should have left but we kept thinking it would get better. We had all driven so far to meet in the middle of our Canadian and US homes. We should have found a hotel.

                            Owner response: Unfortunately, we visited our property over the Labor Day weekend with 3 generations, and there were no issues. Every room was freshly cleaned and ready for our whole family stay. The property manager and our cleaning crew mentioned that it is definitely not "TrumpTowers", and it is a lakefront cottage for nature lovers, who love boating, fishing, and unbelievable sunsets on the lake.

                            5 of us (all single) had a great time at this property. we all had our own space to sleep but the open downstairs kitchen/living room/fire place really allowed some quality space to hang altogether. everything was in working order, the place was clean and well-maintained when we arrived, the owner was very pleasant to deal with, our security deposit was returned promptly, and we have already recommended it to friends and family. overall, a very positive experience.

                            We enjoyed our 5 night stay on Cedar Lake! We rented this house because it slept 12 and we were able to save on the cost of multiple hotel rooms for our daughter's UVM graduation. The house was perfect for our family reunion and we especially enjoyed the screened in porch. All photos and house descriptions were accurate and as advertised. The home owner always got back to me with any questions that I had regarding the property and provided excellent customer service.

                            This was the perfect house for us while visiting family in Charlotte for the Christmas holiday. Only 7 miles from our relatives the house was spacious and well stocked. The bedrooms were large and the living area accommodated 7 of us easily. Definitely a better solution than a hotel. Thanks.

                            Travelling around New England we stayed in some great places but this was our favourite. It is spacious-- both in the bedrooms and in the lounge/dining area-and is spotlessly clean There are laundry and good cooking facilities and all necessary facilities for self catering-- such as towels, kitchen towels etc are provided. It is situated right on lovely Cedar Lake and, if the weather permits, there are outside sitting and eating areas. the lake itself is very pretty, especially in the Fall. It is handily situated for some wonderful areas, such as the Mad River Valley and only about 45 mins drive to Stowe. The owner had thoughtfully left lots of leaflets and ideas for places to visit. We would happily have spent the whole vacation here and plan to return one day. One slight downside,(maybe) is that it isn't ideally located within easy reach of restaurants BUT, with such a nice property, who would want to eat out?

                            We were very pleased to find a rental for our family reunion that would comfortably accommodate 12 people. Our grown children and their spouses and the very young grandchildren spent the week in comfortable bedrooms, a very spacious great room with screened porch. We were also met by the neighbor, Lee, and welcomed to swim at his cottage, however, after two days of clearing the dockside we were able to enjoy the waterfront without invading the neighbor's space. We enjoyed the peddle boat and the men liked the fishing with very nice catch of bass and pike. The "wired generation" were happy they could still keep their iPads, iPhones, and laptops going all week long. We did some hiking on the Long Trail and the young teens enjoyed playgrounds and baseball fields close by.

                            My husband and I stayed here the week of the 4th of July. We really enjoyed our stay and found the property to be clean, spacious and peaceful. The rooms are large and look as they are pictured. The kitcher was spacious with granite floors and granite counter tops. We especially enjoyed sitting in the screened porch watching the beautiful sunsets over the lake. While you can swim in the lake you cannot from this property. However, the neighbor, Lee, is very friendly and allowed us to swim from his dock. We also took the paddle boat out to a swim platform in the middle of the lake and enjoyed swimming and sunning out there. The owner is great to work with and very accomodating. All in all we had a great time. If you are looking for somewhere to get away from it all this is the place to go!

                            A group of friends and i stayed here and had a great time. The house is spacious with nice bedrooms and an awesome open kitchen and living room and nice balconies. Good space outside with the boats and hammock. Definitely would come back and stay again. Gives you the feel of being remote without being to far from all the amenities.

                          Year Purchased: 1991

                          About the owner: My name is Shalini Paul and my family has owned this property since 1991. We decided to move to New Jersey, but retained the property as a yearly rental all these years. Everyone suggested that it is a beautiful spot for a vacation. My husband and I are both working in the financial industry in NJ, and like to come up on weekends to enjoy the property.

                          Why the Owner Chose Monkton:
                          We chose this location because of the property being situated on the lake, and its beautiful surroundings.
