About Mary Kim Lavery

We bought this property several years ago to have a quiet place to enjoy on the lake. We have made many improvements over the years and look forward to sharing our cottage with our guests. The picture shows Jay on the left, Mary Kim and Charlie on the right.

Mary Kim Lavery purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Mary Kim Lavery chose Alburgh

Enjoy your morning cup of coffee out on the large deck at the end of the dock. Great place for kids due to the quiet dirt, dead end road and the shallow waters of the bay.

What makes this cottage unique

This is a great spot on Lake Champlain - the bay is quiet and clean - a perfect spot for any water activities. The water is shallow for a ways out so it's great for swimming with young children. Also very little traffic due to the dead-end dirt road. Close to Montreal or New York and 45 minutes from the beautiful city of Burlington.

Great camp on Lake Chanplain.

  • 5 of 5

My group really enjoyed our week at the camp. It's a great spot to relax and use as a home base for a vacation on the lake. We brought two boats (a bass boat and a 20' bow rider). The dock was too far out of the water to use but there are two moorings. The boats stayed safe even on windy days on the moorings. I wouldn't try bringing a large boat or a sail boat, at least not when the lake is low. You can walk right out to the moorings during average water levels. It's really shallow in this whole part of the lake so it's not really somewhere an adult is likely to enjoy swimming but kids and dogs should enjoy it. There is a sandy beach and shallow area just across the cove to the north which is fun to hang out and swim at. The camp itself is clean and classy and fun to spend time in when the weather is bad. The porch and yard area is great. There is plenty of parking. Definitely use the Rouses Point boat launch instead of the Vermont launch next to the bridge. The kitchen is well stocked for you to cook your own meals. The neighboring camps aren't too far away but that didn't bother us at all. It felt private enough. They all appear to have around 100' of frontage which isn't too bad. We would definitely go back.

We just fell in love with this cottage last fall. It is our second time spent at Mary Kim, Charlie and Jay's cottage. We took advantage of the hiking trails around Alburgh and had a lot of fun this spring. Water level in lake Champlain was high and the scenery was gorgeous. Cottage was in perfect condition and very comfortable. My 4 year old son who can easily be homesick did not want to leave the cottage this time around. We will definitely go back. I recommend this place. It is a very good price for the area and the quality of the cottage.

pleasant and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

My two young kids, my husband and I had a wonderful time in your cottage for our Canadian thanks giving. The scenery is beautiful and the cottage is not too far from outdoor activities. We will definitely consider coming again next year.
