About Tim McKenzie

My parents purchased the cottage on Barney Point in 1948 and the land in 1984. Their children (I have 10 siblings!), grand children, great-grand children and great-great-grandchildren continue to enjoy the property every year as have countless friends, relatives and visitors over the years. It is a special place. We are humbled to own it and thrilled to continue a tradition of sharing it with friends and visitors from around the world. It has been the scene of weddings, graduations and other festive celebrations ...as well as quiet getaways to refresh and recharge the energy in one's life. If you are planning a Spring, Summer or Fall ('fair weather') Vermont vacation this year, please consider staying at Barney Point. You won't be disappointed!

Paradise by the Lake

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed a picture perfect stay at Barney Point. The home has everything you'd want for your Vermont getaway - rustic wood finishings, a beautiful brick fireplace and breathtaking views (and there's a lot of 'em) of Lake Champlain. It's a quick (15 minute) drive to Burlington and we had little trouble getting cabs. Finally Tim's a gracious and responsive host, and I hope to be back soon.

Great stay!

I stayed with a group of friends attending a wedding. We had an awesome time and the house was so much fun. Hopefully we'll have a wedding next year and have another excuse to stay again!

Just the best!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Barney Point and the family is already talking about a third. Since our first visit there have been many upgrades but they have not interfered with the rustic charm of the camp. Air condition, an additional bathroom and dishwasher made life easier but it was the sunsets and meals on the porch that made our visit unforgettable. Tim is great to work with and made us feel welcomed. Can't wait to plan another visit!!

Perfect location and Unbeatable Views

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Barney Point for Labor Day and it was everything we wanted and more. The camp is spacious and well equipped with anything you may need during your stay. Tim made himself available to us should we have needed anything additional. We used the brand new grill every night, as well as the fire pit overlooking the lake. The dining table on the porch provides seating for over a dozen and panoramic views of both the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks. Burlington is an easy 15-minute drive and the bike path is just around the corner from the camp, although we spent most of our time soaking in the phenomenal views and hanging out on the beach just a 30-second walk away. We hope to be back next summer!

Beautiful Property!

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful spot. 180+ degree views of the lake from a bluff. Nice sandy swimming area that is shallow for a ways out. Shaded yard with a breeze off the water, we hardly felt the heat. Huge table in the screened in porch was a bonus for our big family. Beach access is a short walk down a trail from the parking area, which I appreciated because I felt confident my kids wouldn't go to the water without me. We were also very grateful we were able to have 3 large dogs at the house. That is a rare find. It was also a nice walk down to the causeway from the house.

The house is old, but in fine shape and has great character. We had everything we needed. I especially appreciated that there was plenty of silverware! The only problems we had were that you can hear EVERYTHING in the house, which made sleeping hard for some. And families with small children should be aware that there are exposed nails in the wall in some places, which required an watchful eye for the crawler in the family.

My daughter cried when we left and still asks to go back to Barney point!
