"My husband and two adult children just spent one week at the Samson vacation property. The home overlooks the lake is only 10 mins from St.Albans. It is a large 3 bedroom bungalow with all the amenities including a fully stocked kitchen, 5 appliances, bbq, 1 1/2 bathrooms, nicely appointed living room and the queen and double beds are very comfortable. The home was clean however some finer "details" such as the coffee pot and wine glasses were missed.
Lake access was a bit difficult as there is a 5' drop and the stairs which had been broken had not yet been replaced. The beach is very rocky, so water shoes are needed and there is no dock so when we left our boat in the water during the day it had to be anchored off-shore and removed daily.
Lake Champlain is beautiful and quite warm. My husband and son fished daily and my daughter and I cycled everyday as the roadways are excellent and the scenery is fantastic. Steve a family member who leaves a few doors away was very helpful and responsive to our needs. We ran out of propane and before I knew it he had the tank refilled.
Note, there was a requirement to launder all linens before leaving but with a 10 am check-out, we felt there was not enough time so we brought and used our own.
All and in all and great location and comfortable home."

"A beautiful well taken care of home with the most amazing views on Lake Champlain. Lots of space in this home! We had plenty of space for 18 people. If you are looking for peace and tranquility then this is the place!"

"What a lovely, lovely stay. Six adults, two large dogs, three kitties and a whole lot of fun! Warren was the most gracious host! He left flowers, wine and cheese for us at the property and of course Ben & Jerry ice-cream! He was also very friendly and flexible during our booking process, answering all questions patiently, adjusting to our requirements and allowing the cats to come and stay! He was also very helpful and promptly came over when a fuse blew out the lights and the space heater, and later swung by with his aunt to party with us (although just for a little bit). He loves dogs so our pups welcomed him excitedly!
This is a very pretty location right on the lake and we had an absolute blast. We cooked a LOT of food, saw a LOT of Amazon and Netflix tv, and played a LOT in the snow. The deck with the propane grill was a super-hit and well utilized by both humans and dogs. The dogs especially had boisterous fun, running around leash free in the snow and even swimming in the lake although it was in the twenties with wind chill. The house had ample space, a roaring fireplace and enough sleeping areas for the whole party.
The only drawback was that the central heating wasn't up and running at the time of our stay, so we had to make do with the fireplace and another heater. Upstairs was nice but the ground floor was freezing the day before we left, with gale level lake winds and very cold temperature. But we had so much fun sitting around the fireplace and bundling up in layers of quilts, that I cannot but give this place a 5 star!"
