Property description

The Camp at Barney Point…the perfect place for family vacations or multi-generational retreats! Outstanding 2,700 sf Lakefront “Adirondack Great Camp”, available seasonally, May to October. This Camp, or lake house, is an architectural “wow”, reflecting a careful, modern renovation while maintaining its historic, 1920s character.

The Camp is located at Barney Point on Colchester Point Road, Colchester, VT, on the broad portion of Lake Champlain, with spectacular views to south and west, lake breezes, and picture-perfect sunsets.

The property offers almost an acre of manicured lawns, stone walkways, and great landscaping, with two hundred feet of cliff-top lake frontage and panoramic views. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the huge, green, lawn (with pop-up sprinkler system) for dining, lounging, croquet, volleyball, ping pong, softball, tag or other games. Sit, read, and relax. Lay in a hammock. Sit back in a comfortable Adirondack chair at the cliff's edge and watch the fun of the season on the water in front of you. What you’ll notice about the Camp at Barney Point is that it offers plenty of space for family time, inside and out of doors.

Walk the 2-3 minute meandering path through the woods to the association beach—with amazing southerly views to the most expansive section of Lake Champlain—great for bonfires and gatherings. The lake access here offers clean, shallow water and a sandy bottom—great for kids.

Are you looking for an opportunity while on vacation to actually use the lake instead of just gazing at it?! This vacation destination includes numerous amenities that you'd typically find only at an all-inclusive summer resort. Use the Camp’s guest boat mooring, swim platform, rowboat, paddle board, floats, or 3 kayaks. Paddling along the shore to explore the bay, Law Island, and the tip of Colchester Point to the north - or the Winooski River and Burlington Bay to the south - are sure to delight guests of all ages.

Or walk, run or bike the Island Line Trail, a 5-mile scenic wonder, offering access points adjacent to The Camp. This continues north to South Hero, VT when the bike ferry is running, or south to Burlington, another 7.5 miles of scenic beauty! Wonderful Airport Park is just down the road, offering tennis, basketball, a historic schoolhouse (hours vary), and running trails - great for adults, kids and pets.

The Camp sleeps 14 - a king bed in the 2nd floor master with direct access to a master bathroom with soaking tub overlooking the lake; 2 twins in a 2nd floor bedroom; 4 twins and a double in the 3rd 2nd floor bedroom; a double in the 1st floor bedroom with direct access to the 1st floor bathroom; and 2 twins in the main living area that by day form a seating/lounging area for games and reading.

The Camp offers an amazing kitchen with dishwasher, pantry, gas range, fridge with freezer and ice maker, and utensils/dishes for the largest of gatherings, as well as Silestone bar/seating for 8 in a u-shape. A full W&D is offered on the 2nd floor. (All appliances were new for the 2013 season). The Camp has 2 bathrooms, each with shower. The main en-suite Master bath also has a vintage soaking tub overlooking the lake.

The main floor gathering areas offer ample seating for dining, conversation and games. There is a large, wooden dining table with seating for 10-12. In addition, there is 'living' seating for about 20 more. Views abound from every room, with the screened and outdoor porches and decks offering an extension of the gatherings inside. Recent additions include all new outdoor composite dining and Adirondack seating. Ample off-road parking is offered, as is a great deal of privacy. Warm up in front of the wood stove, framed by the Camp’s original brick chimney, on those cooler evenings.

The Camp at Barney Point offers more than just a place to stay; the list of 'inclusions' is a true differentiator:

*great mix of comfortable furnishings with American antiques sprinkled throughout
*600 thread count sheets on all beds
*linens and towels included
*starter packs of all vacation home essentials included
*space to park
*views and sunsets you can only dream about

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are Marilee & Burt Willey, and we are pleased to welcome you to the Camp at Barney Point. We, along with our 3 kids, know you will find this location special for your next group or family getaway!

Why the Owner Chose Malletts Bay, Burlington, VT, USA:
Finding a great spot on Lake Champlain with outstanding views, luxury, parking, beach access, water crafts, a guest boat mooring, a private swim raft, a long list of included amenities (3 kayaks, paddle board, row boat, outdoor ping pong table, croquet, bikes, and so forth...) and room to play is key to any group or family getaway. The views are outstanding; the lawn and upkeep is top notch. This location has it all. We wanted a property where we could offer more to guests than they might have expected - this property offers true differentiation.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The quality and careful renovation of the Camp is a true differentiator as well. Sleeping for 14 offers space for multi-generational gatherings. Rustic, yet luxurious. Spacious, yet cozy. An outdoor scene unsurpassed on Colchester Point. Far away, yet close to everything - 10-12 minutes from downtown Burlington. Relaxing, yet offering sports opportunities galore. Get away from it all at the Camp at Barney Point.
