"The property is beautiful! We stayed in the hilltop cabin, and the view from up there is gorgeous! The picture does not show it, but the back side of the cabin that faces the mountains/valley has several very large windows. The inside of the cabin was very clean and cozy, and much attention has been given to details. There is a fridge, stove, coffee pot, toaster oven, microwave and sink. The fire-pit outside the cabin was perfect! They had boxes of newspaper and kindling, and a large supply of logs. We roasted marshmellows while enjoying the stars and the view! The toilet and shower are attached to the cabin, and you walk outside the length of the cabin to get to them. This could be inconvenient if it was very cold or rainy, but I actually enjoyed the outdoor shower a lot! The owners are very friendly. The land has been in the family for decades, and there are two cabins and several campsites they make available for guests. I got the sense that they cared more about us enjoying the property than about making money. It was the prefect place to recover from a week of backpacking in the Adirondacks. I highly recommend it!"

"This property is truly amazing. The views are incredible. The amazing rock formation/ledge behind the house is so unique and provides the most wonderful place to enjoy the serenity of the Lake Champlain. The view of the Palisades is also just to the right and was an unexpected and delightful surprise. You can even make out the waterfalls! The house itself is of course, very old, and with that comes some of what you'd expect in a more mature dwelling. Don't expect typical modern conveniences (like lots of outlets or a totally bug free place--you're on the water after all at a lake house!) The bathrooms are pretty dated too. Overall, the home was quaint and nice-- although, it's second place compared to the 1st place views offered here. You should note that at the time of this writing, the guest cottage uses lake water (unlike the main house) so our family who stayed there bought bottled water to drink. Overall, a great trip! The views will remain in my memory forever!"

"FINALLY getting around to leaving a review.....
We stayed at the cottage from 9/3-9/7. It was just me, my son (15yrs) & our dog. Linda was so helpful leading up to our arrival date, answering many questions since this was our 1st time in Alburgh. The cottage was very clean & very cozy. The screened-in porch with the table & chairs was wonderful for eating our meals at. Everything worked really well, the tv, dvd player, fridge, microwave, toaster & stove. There was a row boat on the property with life jackets which was awesome! We went out fishing several times. (a side note.... if you're going to fish Champlain, be ready! Our gear wasn't quite up to the test. The fish are HUGE! Use higher test line, bigger lures & bring a net :) ) Linda did a wonderful job leaving little notes around the house with helpful "tips" for things around the house. Also a binder on the kitchen table that had a lot of helpful information too, emergency numbers, hospital info, local recreation etc. The weekend was perfect! Very relaxing & exactly what I was looking for on this little getaway. Alburgh is a quaint town with lots of farms, which I love since I'm not a big city gal. If you're looking for a cozy place to relax & enjoy the scenery, this is the place! Very happy we chose this cottage & very thankful for all Linda's help."
