"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."

"Our family got together from three different states to enjoy a week together at this beautiful house. We had a wonderful time and are looking forward to renting again! The house is spacious and well cared for. Our group of 6 adults and 1 child had plenty of space inside and out. The view from the lake is amazing. We spent our days fishing, swimming, and boating. We were fortunately to be able to meet Duane who was in town and he was a gracious host. We enjoyed the house so much we only ventured out once, having a lunch in Middlebury which is a wonderful little town. I hope we are able to return next summer!"

"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."

"We enjoyed ten days of beautiful fall colors and dramatic lake views from this delightful Vermont camp. The house is set exceptionally well on a raised point projecting out into Lake Champlain allowing for 300 degree water views with a great sense of privacy.
Day trips to Burlington and Shelburne - the museum is amazing - provided a nice balance to sitting in front of the fire while enjoying the distant lake and mountain views.
The house is well furnished and has an exceptionally well equipped kitchen. The owner, Tim, is a very helpful and gracious host.
We are already planning to come back again and I would enthusiastically recommend Barney Point for those interested in an authentic lakefront experience in Vermont."
