"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."

"FINALLY getting around to leaving a review.....
We stayed at the cottage from 9/3-9/7. It was just me, my son (15yrs) & our dog. Linda was so helpful leading up to our arrival date, answering many questions since this was our 1st time in Alburgh. The cottage was very clean & very cozy. The screened-in porch with the table & chairs was wonderful for eating our meals at. Everything worked really well, the tv, dvd player, fridge, microwave, toaster & stove. There was a row boat on the property with life jackets which was awesome! We went out fishing several times. (a side note.... if you're going to fish Champlain, be ready! Our gear wasn't quite up to the test. The fish are HUGE! Use higher test line, bigger lures & bring a net :) ) Linda did a wonderful job leaving little notes around the house with helpful "tips" for things around the house. Also a binder on the kitchen table that had a lot of helpful information too, emergency numbers, hospital info, local recreation etc. The weekend was perfect! Very relaxing & exactly what I was looking for on this little getaway. Alburgh is a quaint town with lots of farms, which I love since I'm not a big city gal. If you're looking for a cozy place to relax & enjoy the scenery, this is the place! Very happy we chose this cottage & very thankful for all Linda's help."
