Owner info

Year Purchased: 1951

About the owner: My parents purchased the property for our family & we lived here year round until the winters got to tough on my mother. However, we lived here for the summer months & my parents rented out the cottages until 1991. My mom used to do all the interior work & would make & sew all the curtains! We had regular 'renters' year after year, some of whom my parents became good friends with & would play bridge or 'uno' in our summer home. We 'kids' would play with their 'kids', fish, waterski, boat, swim, or do what kids love to do, play! It was a great place to grow up & my children who now have children of their own, own the property with me, and love it as much as I do! We are in this joint venture together & you will choose our site for your vacation. We hope you will join us @ this beautiful property on the shores of Lake Champlain!

Why the Owner Chose Shoreham, VT, USA:
Because...see for yourself, there is no other property like it! Minutes to all kinds of entertainment & historical landmarks. There is so much to offer! You will delight in it's charm, sunsets, lake, fishing, views, boating, & so much more! We have rentals available for the fishing enthusiasts, the kayaker, and pontoon boat cruises available with reservations! Please reserve early to obtain the week /weeks you want! You will be pleasantly surprised!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
For the anglers, boat & water enthusiasts one can go anywhere from this lake. The beautiful sunsets are an added bonus as well as watching all the various types of boats on the lake & then there are the fishermen who love to brag about 'catching the big one!' We enjoy the privacy of our property, but only have to go minutes to nearby shopping, theaters, & more! In the Golden Eagle cottage the beams are from our black locusts trees logged & seasoned right on the premises! Each cottage is unique with it's own character! They are sheltered from the hustle & bustle of the 'city life'! Come rest, relax, enjoy, & discover why everyone loves this truly 'one of a kind' piece of luxury away from it all!
