Wake up to gentle breezes and the sound of lapping waves against the beach, relax over coffee on the glassed dining porch or snuggle into a comfy wicker chair on the enclosed front porch just steps from a sandy beach and the waters of Lake Champlain. Plan your day of relaxation: Take a canoe out (we have two), be a 'beach walker or sitter', bike to Burlington or along the causeway viewing the Islands via the Burlington Bike path. Hiking trails, tennis courts, children's play area, soccer fields, basketball courts, horseshoe pits, and more are nearby at Colchester Airport Park (one mile away). Relax, enjoy and make memories to last a lifetime.
Welcome to our yellow family lake cottage and use this as your base camp to go forth and explore.

Year Purchased: 1949
About the owner: Sons and daughters, born 1943 - 1950 of a prominent Burlington physician, siblings and their families have maintained the large beachfront cottage for over 65 years. The five owners have shared this six-bedroom camp during the summer months, bringing spouses, children, and grandchildren to this pristine beach community with excellent neighbors. Traveling from California, Florida, Maine, Western New York and Southern Vermont, the extended families enjoy relaxing away from their busy lives as doctors, professors, psychologists and educators at the Big Yellow Camp with the broadest view of Lake Champlain on Colchester Point.
Why the Owner Chose Malletts Bay, Burlington, VT, USA:
A singular stretch of light sand beach, bracketed by prominent slate and cedar points, the Cunningham Camp faces the broad lake with a wrap around porch view of Camel's Hump mountain near Stowe, VT to Port Kent, NY, the western terminus of the Lake Champlain Ferry that links Burlington to New York and the Adirondack Mountains. This broad lake view attracted our father and mother to build the Camp in 1948. Three generations of Cunninghams have summered here and now are inviting others to share in the magic of a Colchester Point beachfront vacation.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Just 15 minutes from Burlington, named one of the top ten small cities in the U.S., by car and only 30 minutes by bicycle on rail-to-trail path along the lake shore, the camp is both convenient and private. The bike trail extends past Colchester Point well out into Malletts Bay, providing some of the most picturesque walking, running, or biking in New England. Boating, kayaking, canoeing, and sailing are as easy as sliding the watercraft into the water from the soft sand beach. Internal space, with an Adirondack style, is enhanced by vaulted, two-story living room ceiling, knotty pine walls, a very large dining porch that catches the early morning light, and an even larger front porch with that breath-taking wrap-around view - -extending down the lake beyond the horizon. This vacation home is 'paradise found'.
