"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!"

"the house is situated directly on Lake Champlain in a small tucked away community of about 10 homes..it was extraordinarily peaceful, especially at night for stargazing as there was little to no ambient light..this section of the Lake is sparsely populated; even across the lake we barely made out 3 or 4 homes.
The area nearby was about "peak" for leaf peeping, many hikes/walks/bike rides..we went into Burlington and Shelburne a few times, with Burlington being a neat, slightly offbeat college town with a variety of activities.
The house itself is very nicely outfitted, with the exception that I would recommend updated seating in the living area and possibly on the upper deck area. We ate dinner at the house all but one of our 7 nights..although there are good eating options in nearby Vergennes and Middlebury if you dont like cooking.
All in all, the place was fine ; the owner was cordial and responsive to our needs, One slight negative (certainly not the owners fault) was the number of flies we had to contend with in the house...hey, its on a lake and it was warm, so I guess that shouldnt be a surprise..but it was annoying."

"This home offered our family of four everything we needed after a busy VT day. We were very comfortable there during our weeklong stay. We particularly enjoyed the screened-in porch and the pool table. Although we did not cook much during our stay the kitchen was well-equipped. The house is very well-maintained and the owners were friendly and responsive to our questions.
We loved being right in Shelburne in such close proximity to the Shelburne Museum, Shelburne Farms, as well as the many fine restaurants and shops. It was also convenient to drive into Burlington. Highly recommended."

"We have stayed at many VRBO homes, but we have never had a more hospitable, gracious host than Warren. From the cheese and ice cream that he greeted us with upon arrival to his great advice on day trips and more, Warren was really the best. We appreciated all of his help!
Our daughters (2 and 4) loved the house, particularly the spacious outdoor area and easy access to the water. And the nearby ice cream shop didn't hurt either!
The highlight for us was walking into the state park and taking the ferry to Burton Island. It was great to be on the water and have easy access to such a beautiful island for the day.
A few drawbacks:
1. There was an upsurge of toxic blue-green algae in the lake, which prevented us from swimming for several days. We had no idea that that could potentially be a problem, so be warned.
2. The water in the house was basically undrinkable (at least for us, since we live in NYC and have delicious tap water). We ended up buying large containers of water from Hannafords to drink and use for coffee throughout the week."
