About Chuck Stephen

We are from Manchester, NH where we have raised three wonderful children. We always dreamed of owning on the lake and were lucky enough to find this property. We have been in love with the house and the area ever since. We take pride in offering our guests a home away from home where you can spend time with friends and family just as we have.

Chuck Stephen purchased this house in 2006

Why Chuck Stephen chose Alburg

There's nothing like waking to the panoramic view of beautiful Lake Champlain from this house. Evenings are spent watching the sun set over the sparkling waters and enjoying the company of friends and family. Located three miles from both Canada and New York, you can easily find interesting things to do.

Lake Champlain Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The home is clean and spacious with beautiful lake views. The master suite is lovely with a jacuzzi tub. Large screen TV (not that you will want to spend much time indoors with the water right out the door). Stainless appliances and granite in the kitchen. Loads of sleeping space. Loved the trip to the Church Street outdoor mall in Burlington, VT (a must). Two beautiful golf courses nearby. Just go over the bridge to NY or Canada.

Great location and the house had plenty of room for our large group of 14.

  • 5 of 5

This is a roomy and beautiful house on Lake Champlain. The accomodations were wonderful! I had to contact the owner on the evening we arrived to get a set of sheets for one of the beds and he had someone drop them off the next day. There are plenty of beds and the living area and eating areas are perfect for large groups. The lake was clean and beautiful. It was so nice to be able to dock our boats right there as well. We had a great time and would highly recommend this property. We hope to rent there again!!

Wonderful House for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have vacationed with our friends at lake houses every summer for the past 11 years. We are a group of 15 people and this house was perfect for us. There were plenty of beds for everyone and the kitchen, dining and living areas were spacious and extremely comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed. The views of the lake were spectacular (especially from upstairs in the fabulous master bedroom/bathroom suite). The house is located within a half hour of major food stores (Hannaford's and Price Chopper), and we enjoyed day trips to Burlington and Montreal (about an hour drive for each). The fenced in yard had plenty of seating and a gas grill for enjoyable gatherings outside. We had 7 teenagers with us who all claimed that this was the nicest house we ever stayed in... and the adults all emphatically agreed!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Loved this home on Lake Champlain! Perfect for our family of six adults and six children, ages 4 to 10...The children loved the bunk room. Well equipped home. Beautiful weather in June, breezes from the Lake were wonderful... Enjoyed kayaking on the Lake! Exploring the Islands of Lake Champlain , the towns of Burlington and Stowe and a trip to Montreal made our visit to your home so enjoyable .

A lovely house for a family group in a great 'away-from-it-all' location

  • 4 of 5

The house was straight out of 'Vermont Holiday Houses by Lake Champlain' Central Casting... clapperboard with a picket fence. Really great!

It served our family group well and we had a happy 2 weeks there. This house doesn't offer grand luxury but it does offer a solidly comfortable option for a large family group who want to make their holiday dollar go as far as they can.

Great location for exploring this corner of the world - Montreal is an hour away, Ben and Jerry's, Burlington, Green Mountains all within an hour or so drive.

The house...

Kitchen was excellent - had everything we needed.

Decking area was great - plenty of seating for everyone outside.

Living room was one big space - served us well.

Any issues we had (we had just one request for more bed linen) were quickly dealt with by the lovely cleaner, who was on-hand via owner Chuck

Comms with owner Chuck were business-like and speedy. He doesn't want your life story, but his approach means that things happen in a timely fashion.

Watch-outs:

House has only 2 bathrooms - make sure you think this through if you're a big group

House AC is pretty ineffective - we two weeks were HOT - the system is more like a lacklustre fan system rather than cooling. Didn't really do much to cool the place. Additional provided fans did help keep air moving at least.

A few in our party did complain about uncomfortable mattresses (too soft/springy/noisy etc) but that's big families for you! And I'm sure Chuck, being the decent chap he is, has a replacement plan in due course.

We felt that photos made the house look bigger than it actually was. Whilst this wasn't a problem, it was the impression of everyone in our party, so worth sharing on here.

Recycling trash - you need to take it to the local recycling centre. Chuck will give you the details.

The beach in front of the house - is tricky for swimming due to the shallowness of the water - but the local State Park beach is excellent and is a 10 minute drive away.

Owner's Response: Dear James, Thank you so much for the lovely review. We are glad you and your family enjoyed our home and your visit to Vermont. We really appreciate your feedback. This is a great house for multi-generational groups! Your family did experience a warmer than usual summer. Normally the constant lake breeze, house fan and ceiling fans in each room suffice for cooling. The lack of winter snow and near drought like conditions did attribute to the low water level of the lake this summer. This fall we will look at replacing the mattresses that need to be. We, like you, appreciate being green and will be making arrangements to provide curbside recycling pick-up. Thanks again for taking the time to let us and other travelers know about our vacation home. Your Hosts, Chuck and Kim

Beautiful panoramic views

  • 5 of 5

My family of three daughters, their husbands, and our grandchildren have been renting different properties in VT and NY for a few years together. This is the first one that we all agreed we would not hesitate to return to.

As soon as we stepped foot into in the house we knew we were home. The pictures did not do justice of the interior. The open-concept family area with large living room opened to the fenced-in yard. How perfect for our toddlers. The dining room table easily fit our large family for games, crafts, and huge meals. The bay windows overlooking the lake make it a favorite spot for gathering.

The kitchen was filled with all amenities we possibly could want including many spices. There were dishes, glasses, mugs, and flatware as well as pots and pans galore. The small table in the kitchen was an added bonus.

We all wanted to take the master suite home with us. The view was beyond beautiful and the room itself was enormous. It became a getaway for reading, games, and quiet reflection.

The lawn was mowed and the beach groomed before our stay. What a great first impression! The lake water was low this season because of the mild winter but for us that was not a problem. Even the toddlers could walk out safely and float with the help of their life jackets. The older kids and adults took full advantage of the canoe. We even rented paddle boards from the country store on Apple Island. We so loved that store that we took "field trips" there a couple of times. One small nuisance from mother nature was the aquatic plants we had to rake up that had washed up on the shoreline overnight.

A one hour drive down through the islands to Burlington was well worth it. The drive itself was beautiful. We enjoyed Church Street and the ECHO Science Museum. I even worked in a Jazzercise class in Williston. On the trip home we took a detour to investigate the fossils on Isle La Motte. Right over the bridge crossing into NY is Rouses Point, a sweet little town with terrific pizza and ice cream at Gino's Pizza. The nearest full grocery story, Price Chopper, is a few minutes further in Champlain, NY. However there are some smaller stores right near the property.

Owners Chuck and Kim were quick to respond when we tripped a circuit breaker. They sent over a neighbor who quickly came right over. They also responded quickly by phone or e-mail when I had questions.
