  • Beautiful House, Beautiful Lake

    "My family (wife, mother, stepfather, sister, Charlie our dog) and I had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful house at the end of August 2014. We had never been to this part of the U.S. It was a beautiful drive up from New York City. Coming from the south Isle La Motte is one of the more remote Champlain Islands and you have to cross multiple causeways. While the area is remote it is certainly not wilderness. On the other hand, it is not a place where you can drive a couple of miles and easily find a place to eat or buy groceries. The house has a great layout and it is perfect for the type of family trip we imagined. The large 1st floor living space and the open kitchen make for a perfect shared experience. The house has all the necessities and more in abundance. It doesn't have cable TV. For some of us this was a surprise. The property is right on the lake and going out on the deck and catching the breeze and the sun shining off the lake was a favorite thing to do. The deck was also the site for a memorable barbecue. We did some fun things while there: renting kayaks and rowboats, hiking around the Mt. Stowe area (admittedly a bit of a drive), eating out at the local restaurants (good if not great cooking). We were a bit disappointed by the lack of local farmer's markets and fresh produce, but perhaps, we didn't know where to go. All in all, while the area didn't WOW us; our consensus was the house and its comforts were GREAT and for that reason I've given 5 stars."

  • Awesome Mountain Retreat Among the Trees

    "We were four retired teachers looking for a retreat to watch the fall color. The Duck and Dog did not disappoint! The home is just as it looks in the photos! Everything is provided, and the owners were so accommodating. They sent us detailed directions to the house, as well as, an information list about the home and where grocery stores were located. We found our beds fresh and the bathrooms and kitchen sparkling and exceptionally well equipped. There was never a wait for showers with the instant hot water. We have stayed in VRBOs before where we have had to clean the house and wash all the dishes and utensils before feeling like we could enjoy our stay! Definitely not the case here...not even a dog hair or duck feather! We spent a wonderful week in Sept/Oct watching the trees change from our first day to our last. What beauty! We had gorgeous weather during the days for our forays into the surrounding towns and cool evenings when we enjoyed the outdoor fire pit and the indoor pellet stoves...nice and cozy. We hiked, photographed, discovered lovely shops in friendly towns, took panoramic drives through the Green Mountains, and took in a performance at the Town Hall Theater in Middlebury. More than anything, the relaxing, peaceful setting of this home among the trees, made our Vermont get-away an awesome a success."

  • Classic Vermont

    "Years ago we admired this house when we bicycled past it. The large boulders in the yard attracted our attention. We were pleased to find this house we knew was available. Our younger granddaughter accompanied us for this visit. She was enthralled with the floors and the furnishings. This is a great place to visit and would be a wonderful place to live. We found everything we wanted or needed in the kitchen so that we could prepare meals for the three of us. We hope to return here again some summer."

  • Excellent Holiday Getaway!

    "An easy 5-star rating here! The cabin was clean, comfortable and cozy. It was exactly what we were looking for, even better than the pictures show. (By the way, thanks Danna for posting my night shot on the site!) The listing description is accurate. We did some cross country skiing on the golf course located right next door one day and then at the Grafton Ponds Center the next. The snow conditions at the time were better at the golf course! And it's a big area, you can ski for hours. At night we played monopoly (board games are in the house) and watched a couple of movies that were supplied. If you are looking to get away and be in a quiet woodsy setting without the distraction of cable tv or internet or cell phones (we were!) then definitely book this cabin. Thanks for the good memories for our first Christmas together! -Courtney"
