Cedarvale Lane is a beautiful walk and at the end is our private Jefferson Park with a Shale Beach. Water shoes recommended. You can then walk up to the old RailRoad Tracks that is now a walking Path. Walk North and you are a short distance to the North Hero Marina where you can get a meal at the Tiki Bar and there is a Swimming Pool. Keep walking to the end and you might see Fishermen fishing in the channel opening to Carry Bay.
For those who love to Run and Jog, Pelot's Point is a low traffic Dead End Road that offers clean air and scenic beauty of local Farms, Mountains along Lake Champlain.
Nearby is Pelot's Point Nature Area where there is a walking path through a mature forest to an open meadow where you can see the Green Mountains. The open Meadow has tall grasses that sway in the wind. Here you will see small Cedars and wild Apple trees, and your journey will take you through a dense path of cedars and eventually end up at the waters edge of Pelot's Bay.
We provide 2 Mountain Bicycles with helmets!
Pelot's Point Road is excellent for Bicycling! Traffic is light and the views are astonishing long this Lake Shore Road! The Bi-Way is on Route 2 and you can bicycle into Burlington via the Bicycle Ferry in South Hero for those who love a challenge.
Water Shoes a MUST if your swimming in front of the cottage or at Jefferson Park. There is a sandy beach nearby at the Alburg Sand Dunes State Park.
We provide 2 Kayaks & 2 Life Jackets.
We like to Kayak to Carry Bay just a 1/4 mile north of the Cottage and into Pelot's Bay. This season we plan to Kayak over to Cloak Island for Lunch! Kayaks each have a compartment for bringing food/water etc.
Lake Champlain is known for its sports fishing. We have seen schools of fish swim by on the Stairs Landing leading to the waterfront.

About the owner: Steven & Rebecca We are both Professionals who work with people with Developmental Disabilities and I also am a Guitarist who has just released my Debut Album Acoustic Memories. www.stevendwightlongemusic.com If you like the sound of the Acoustic Guitar then my website and music is a must listen! Listen free on my website! Our Commitment toward Excellence to our guests: Rebecca and I want your stay to be the most enjoyable the property has to offer. With this we ask that you give us a chance to make anything you find bothersome with the Cottage known to us so that we may immediately remedy the cause of concern. If you find the cleaning is inadequate - we will get the cleaning service back in... If you find the furniture dirty, we will get it cleaned immediately! Just give us a chance to make it so and let it be known to us out of respect for the Cottage and all parties.
Why the Owner Chose North Hero:
We initially purchased this property to get away from all the noise pollution that city life bombards you with. This property offers total peace and quiet for recording. Rebecca enjoys reading books here, bird watching, walking, swimming, and biking. She enjoys the serenity of the location and the whistling of wind through the many mature cedars hence the name Cedarvale Lane! Rebecca and I pictured above.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
* Location of this property on Lake Champlain with its breathtaking panoramic view from inside the living room is absolutely spectacular. Very soothing to listen to the Lake Surf. * PRIVACY - Private Road and cottage is barley visible through mature Cedars. * Nature - Deer, Grey Fox, Raccoons, Chipmunks, Red and Grey Squirrels, Waterfowl, Blue Hearings, Loons, Eagles, Osprey, Hawks, King Fishers, Flycatchers, Chickadees, Robins, Cardinals & Nuthatch. * 100 Feet of Direct Waterfront The Lake for Kayaking and the Peninsula for Walking, Hiking and Biking!
