"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."

"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."

"Beautiful lake house in a quiet area. The house is well maintained and clean. The layout and size of the house is ideal for multiple families vacationing together. An easy drive to Burlington and Montreal. The outdoor area is private and very relaxing. Wonderful views of the lake. The pictures displayed accurately reflect what the property has to offer. I would recommend bringing bulk grocery items with you however there is a little market with essentials on the island with excellent homemade fudge. I would recommend highly recommend this property."

"What a great place, in a great spot! The description & pictures are very accurate displaying this great house to enjoy! We had the chance to get away for a few days with our young adult son, who lives out of state and our daughter who is on a break from medical school and were looking for a place where we could enjoy eachother's company and also have a place to just find a quiet spot and relax, which we all needed and we found it all here! Sitting in the adirondack chairs reading a book while seeing the lake was so relaxing, or just taking a nap in the hammock, a perfect vacation day! We enjoyed the great yard & just watching the sunset over the lake and the Adirondacks was beautiful.
It was wonderful having the bikes available & we had a great time riding out on the bike trail toward the bike ferry, another beautiful spot just being right there in the middle of the lake! We also enjoyed the kayaks & rowboat which were a lot of fun. It was perfect to have everything you needed at the house already, from all the firewood, bed linens and towels to anything you could think of in the kitchen to prepare meals & all you needed to do was pick up groceries which was just a quick ride into town, everything else you needed was already there (and very clean too!) We enjoyed our evenings by the fireplace and enjoyed the games there too, all adding to the great experience of being together.
The location here is convenient to Essex where we surprised the kids with a hot air balloon ride with Above Reality, another way of enjoying the beauty of this great area!
I can't say enough of how nice & easy it was to arrange everything for the house with Burt. We were highly satisfied with our experience at the camp & highly recommend to anyone else who has the chance to go!"
