Overview

About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

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

Why Burt Willey chose Lake Champlain

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 (4 kayaks, 2 paddle boards, 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. The interior offers unparalleled rustic luxury. The outside offers unmatched beauty, useful spaces, places to play and "postcard" lake and sunset views. We wanted a property where we could offer more to guests than they might have expected - this property offers true differentiation.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Wonderful house. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 generations loved this house. Lots to do for everyone. Abundant outdoor activities. The bikes and kayaks were enjoyed with the easy beach access. Unbelievable choice of yard games. Lots of indoor games, too, but due to our perfect weather we didn't really need these:) Every night we enjoyed dinner on the screened in porch while watching the sunset over the lake. Meal prep was pretty easy with a roomy kitchen and plenty of kitchen equipment.

We loved the style and furnishings of the house - the campy feel of it. With all the windows we were able to get nice breezes off the lake.

Great location for exploring the area. But really, when we were out and about we were all looking forward to returning to relaxing at the house.

We appreciated finding the house clean and ready for us when we arrived after a long day of travel.

We'll put this on our list as a favorite!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The "shabby chic" decor added to the overall camp feel. Beautifully done. I wouldn't hesitate to return. There were only six of us so it was very spacious. I tend to eat out a lot on vacation but my boys couldn't wait to get.back "home" for dinner. Enjoyed the stay so much I ended up enquiring about a property for sale down the road.

Relaxing, beautiful spot/vacation

  • 5 of 5

I was born in Burlington Vermont and spent a lot of my youth on Coates Island, Mallets Bay. The Camp at Barney Point is close to everything, yet private/secluded. I rented the camp to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. Our daughters and their families plus my sister and her family came and there was plenty of room in the camp for us. The Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, bowls, etc. There were several dining tables one in the main room, one on the screened porch, and one outside. The lawn is large enough for kids to run around, and adults to talk, play croquet and soccer. The Master Bedroom is amazing and the view was stunning. I took a picture of the sunset each night we were there. My only complaint was that the internet was really slow. It was especially bad when it rained, not sure why.

I would highly recommend this property! The landlords were very easy to work with.

Our expectations were exceeded during our one week family reunion here.

  • 5 of 5

The description Burt & Marilee give of this spectacular property is indeed accurate. We ALL (ages 2-76) enjoyed this cozy, roomy, well-stocked and well-situated home with amenities for everyone, from kayaks to paddle boards, bikes & game tables. The kitchen, pantry, dining room, screened porch dining area AND outside dining area gave us many choices to eat and gather. We took advantage of the very well equipped kitchen and pantry for our many large gatherings (some of our family stayed in the rental home next door). The private beach and the extensive bike trails were family favorites. So much to do in this area! No boredom even on the one rainy day.

We loved our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The camp was beautiful and clean. We were a family of 15 with 3 being babies in cribs. There were plenty of beds for all. The house had every amenity one could want. The yard and grounds were lovely, chairs, hammock, swings, room to run and a magnificent view!

There was a row boat, kayaks and paddle boards to use on the lake.

We enjoyed a fire pit in the evening!

Our family had a lovely week at the camp at Barney Point!
