Vergennes house description

Situated on the shores of Lake Champlain, this wonderful year-round home is not only spacious but is located in one of the most beautiful areas of the lake! Large flat yard, clear water and views of the 'palisades' rock cliffs. Walking distance to Basin Harbor resort which features an 18 hole championship golf course, restaurants, and the Maritime Museum. Button Bay Park and NY State Forest (across the lake) feature hiking trails.

A 40 foot dock leads into the shallow waters where you can swim and fish from. A mooring is also available if you are bringing a boat. Kayaks and bikes (life jackets and helmets too!) are available for your use to explore the area by water or land.

Open floor plan with unobstructed views of the lake. A full bath is located on each floor. Second floor has 3 bedrooms: A master bedroom with a King, a guest bedroom with a King, and a guest bedroom with 2 Twins. There is also a private bedroom/den on the first level with a full size bed. 2 twin futon chairs can also accommodate additional guests.

The kitchen is fully equipped, a washer and dryer are located in the basement, and the home is protected by an automatic generator in case of power failures.

The town of Vergennes is a short car ride away, featuring restaurants, shops, and all the amenities of a small town. Burlington and Middlebury are a 30 minute drive and offer a plethora of activities all year long. Premier skiing at Sugarbush, Mad River Glen and Middlebury Snowbowl are about an hour away, and Jay Peak can also be done in a day, about a 2 hour drive.

              Car: Necessary

              Enjoy boating, swimming, fishing, kayaking, and the year round beauty right from your front door. The unique location offers so much within walking distance. A championship golf course, museum, restaurants, walking/biking/jogging trails all with a view!

               

              Owner info

              Why the Owner Chose Vergennes:
              Lake Champlain has so much to offer, not to mention the beauty surrounding the area. Our family loves all the outdoor opportunities this area offers: great skiing in the winter; hiking, biking, boating, and swimming in the summer; antiquing and 'leaf peeping' in the fall; and gearing up for summer in the spring!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              With over 100 miles of waterfront, Lake Champlain varies in water quality, views, and accessibility. Unique to our area is the proximity to the Basin Harbor Resort with its restaurants, championship golf, and even onsite museum. Make new friends at The Red Mill restaurant (live entertainment most weekends in the summer) or go for a long solitary jog or bike ride along the rarely traveled country roads. In the winter/spring, you can plan a day trip to some of the best skiing mountains in Vermont! Mad River Glen (Ski it if you can!) and the Middlebury Snowbowl are within an hour drive, and Jay Peak is within 2 hours. Whether you want total relaxation or a high energy vacation you'll find this the perfect place to be!
