About Shalini Paul

My name is Shalini Paul and my family has owned this property since 1991. We decided to move to New Jersey, but retained the property as a yearly rental all these years. Everyone suggested that it is a beautiful spot for a vacation. My husband and I are both working in the financial industry in NJ, and like to come up on weekends to enjoy the property.

Shalini Paul purchased this house in 1991

Why Shalini Paul chose Vermont

We chose this location because of the property being situated on the lake, and its beautiful surroundings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Excellent house"

Stayed at this house for a week with the family and could have quite happily stayed for longer.The house is as described and is well equipped.The facilities outside are excellent too with two boats and a lovely dock to sit and watch sunrise/sunsets from aswell as the picnic table and swing bench.

This house is within easy reach of many attractions in Vermont and New York State.

Would definately stay again

Great house and property

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed. It sleeps a great number of people and is spacious and comfortable. The outside yard is great too - unfortunately we weren't able to take more advantage of the water activities due to rain. I hope to return at some point in the future!

Great outside and indoor space. Stunning sunsets.

  • 5 of 5

The house was above and beyond. It was fully furnished with bath products, all linens, xtra cots, all paper products. The house was extremely spacious with wonderful views of the lake. We didn't swim or boat but there was that option. The screened in porch was the highlight for evenings. It provided an outside space with wonderful views without the bugs. I would rent this house again! The slope to the water was a bit steep so bring good sneakers and you will be okay! I can only imagine the foliage is stunning in the fall.

This was a great stay. Need a ladder on the dock to support swimming.

  • 4 of 5

A very all inclusive lake home. I would recommend this to anyone. Perfect getaway. The swimming could be improved with a little bit of excavation around the dock. Overall an amazing time.
