The best fishing in Lake Champlain is just minutes away in the broad lake. If you are a diver you cannot find a better location. For winter renters, the ski areas are between 40 minutes and 1 hour and 30 minutes away. The most easily accessed areas are Bolton Valley (40 min), Stowe(1:20) and Sugarbush(1:20).

Lake Champlain

  • 4 of 5

Great place on the lake with amazing view of sunset. The large wrapping deck was great to entertain and have a glass of wine. Caught and released 4 fish (bass and perch) right off the dock. Only concern was stairs were steep and narrow for getting kayaks or canoe down. Would reserve again!!

Owner's Response: We appreciate the positive comments. For the information of others, there is a rack at the bottom of the stairs, next to the dock, that contains 3 kayaks and a canoe. Never a need to carry them up the stairway.

UVM Graduation Home Base

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us had the BEST time at my daughter's graduation. Instead of being stuck in between events in a stuffy hotel room, we had a comfortable home with a gorgeous lakefront deck and dock. We were even able to host some additional friends for cocktails, brunch, etc. Our dealings with the owner were easy and respectful. Deciding when we should return.

The Smiths, Brighton, UK

  • 5 of 5

Had a five day stay, arriving at same time as Hurricane Irene and had a great time. House is well appointed and feels like a home, rather than a house. Lakeside location is excellent and the veranda was excellent for evening BBQ and watching the sun go down.

Very short drive to Burlington and even shorter drive to local shops and facilities.

Don called to check all was fine and the property manager made sure we had everything we needed.

Very peaceful setting and would recommend very highly.
