"Just spent a week at this beautiful spot on Lake Champlain. The views are as spectacular as the description says. This was a very well equipped cottage with everything that you need to make a comfortable stay. Bikes, kayaks and beach chairs were an added bonus as were the comfortable deck chairs. Although we didn't spend a lot of time indoors and rarely turned on the TV, the inside set up was also great with games and Direct TV if wanted. Owner was close by and very accommodating although we didn't need much as pretty much everything we needed was provided. Deck was on the small side but we had guests over most evenings and could comfortably seat 6-8 people while cooking on the nice grill. Our 2 year old lab loved chasing sticks into the lake from the beach. Would absolutely stay here again if the situation was right...have family and friends in the Burlington area so it was a great meeting spot."

"3 generations of our family enjoyed this lovely home while attending college graduation activities. We kayaked and paddle boarded across Lake Champlain and spotted an eagle's nest with three eagles on the New York side. The home was perfect for family dinners on the large screened in porch. We enjoyed the sunsets from the Adirondack chairs and spent most of our time in the yard enjoying the scenery and weather. The home is just that, a comfortable place to relax and unwind. The owner went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and fun. The cottage was a great place for my parents to stay and be a part of the family activities yet escape to their own private quarters. The house is beautifully decorated and there is lots of space to enjoy and relax. The town of Vergennes is a short car ride away to get your groceries and anything you forgot to pack. It is also a great place to dine, shop and bring the family for ice cream! We also explored the surrounding area and fell in love with the people, mountains and the beautiful farm lands! We have already decided to come back next year!"

"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."
