Wonderfully located Lake Champlain Sandy Beachside Camp in Burlington. Rentals run from Saturday to Saturday.
Summer 2018 ($4200/week - Sat to Sat) - Cabin is an additional charge ($150/night or $800/week).
This very well located but private Cape Cod style rustic camp was built in 1935 and has been in our family since 1937. It has a 100 foot private beach and is a fun and relaxing place for a family vacation. Those that have had the opportunity to come stay before always want to come back. The house is very basic, nothing fancy, but offers comfort, conveniences and beach front fun.
Upstairs it has two big bedrooms(one sleeps up to 4 with a queen and two singles and the other room sleeps up to 4 as well and has a queen and a futon chair plus foam mattress). There is a half-bath upstairs. Downstairs has two bedrooms (with two twin beds each) and a full bath (plus living room, dining, kitchen and back room with extra fridge). It has a screened in porch that seats about 8 looking out over the water and beach. We have plenty of chairs for the outside as well as a picnic table, loungers and beach chairs.
The house has an outside shower (hot and cold water, great for a post-swim rinse off or kid showers), boat ramp, nice sandy beach and sandy bottomed swimming area. Its sandy for about 300 feet out and gets deep gradually (prime territory for little ones - the near shore water can get well over 80 degrees on sunny days). The width of the beach varies from short (or no beach if the lake level is very high from snow run off and spring rains) at the beginning of the summer to up to 100 feet by the end of summer. Amount of beach and water level depends on winter snowfall and spring rains.
There is great small mouth bass fishing but I can't tell you where (family secret). It has a wonderful view down the lake, of sailboats, the Burlington Ferry and to Juniper Island. Its a two mile boat ride to the Burlington Ferry docks or you can take the bike path about three miles. Great swimming and water-skiing in the bay. The bay is one and a half miles wide. Oh, and good views of the Burlington 4th of July fireworks.
It's on 2/3 of an acre with parking for five cars and boat trailer space.
There is also a small 1 bedroom/1 bath cabin on the property on the water next to the main house (see picture) available for an additional $150/night. This cozy spot is ideal for the couple that wants to be away from the fray in the big house some of the time. The cabin has a full bath and a small kitchen with a queen bed (full electricity, utensils, sink etc.) and is 260 square feet.

Unfortunately, we've had trouble with some dogs in the past but do love dogs and understand some owners want their pets to vacation as well.
