Built in 2007 it features an open kitchen and living room with a knotty pine cathedral ceiling and unobstructed views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks. The first floor has Corian counters, a dishwasher, with hardwood floors and tiled bathroom, both bedrooms are carpeted. A large deck with grill is right through the sliding door, overlooking beautiful Lake Champlain. Downstairs is a large game room facing the lake with a pool table, couches and laundry facilities. Stone patios and a private dock right outside the lower level provide fishing, boating and swimming a few feet from the door.
Amenities include internet Wi-Fi, cable TV, phone, washer and dryer, dishwasher, microwave, bed linens, towels and all kitchen essentials.
The Lakehouse is pet friendly, but you will be responsible for any damage caused by your pet.

We built this place after tearing down a camp built in the 1930's that was beyond saving. Having spent the last 25 yrs on the lake we want to share this special spot with others who appreciate the lake and the mountains. The living room and deck have unforgettable sunsets and lake views. It is private and quiet while near the small city of St Albans, VT. Burlington is 30 minutes away and major ski areas are less than an hour from this location.
This property has spectacular views and direct lake access.
Very clean with all the comforts of home.
This house really is perfect in every way. The view of the lake is spectacular! The house is very well kept, the beds and furniture are gloriously comfy, even the dishes are adorable.
The deck is ideal, the pool table is very enjoyable and there is a kayak that I personally was too afraid to use, (lake monster) but my husband and dog had blast with it!
The charming town of Saint Albans was my favorite place to visit and shop. Burlington is great of course, but I definitely felt more at home and enjoyed spending time in lovely and charming Saint Albans.
The only negative experience I had throughout my stay was due to the stress of trying desperately NOT to appear rude to the locals as I had experienced some difficulty communicating with them:/.
We came from the Philadelphia area and perhaps have an unfamiliar accent.
Everyone we encountered was super friendly and kind, but we gradually came to realize that the fine citizens of Vermont simply refuse to acknowledge the letter "T" sound when they speak for no discernible reason.
This led to copious amounts of embarrassment on my part from having to beg their pardon so frequently and then still awkwardly staring with what I'm sure was a blank idiotic expression on my face.
Overall, we all had an absolutely wonderful experience and an unforgettable vacation. I highly recommend staying here for as long as you possibly can!
Beautiful property - When the description says all equipped I mean it is ALL equipped! (We are usually used to bringing our own paper towels, napkins, condiments etc, etc.) Could have left them at home and had more room in the car!)
The view of the lake from the inside of the house and (obviously) from the beautiful deck is spectacular. Peaceful, calm tranquil are but a few words that come to mind. We were lucky that the weather held up so we could BBQ and eat outside almost every night.
During the days the dogs had a blast exploring St. Albans :)
Gene, we wanted to get away from the "hustle and bustle" of Montreal for a week and your Lakehouse provided that for us and much more.
We WILL be back!

Perfect place for adults. Sunsets are beautiful and the Lake House is very nice & clean. Not child friendly though..
We had a very relaxing time. Enjoyed the deck and spectacular view.
Overall a great spot. Only complaint is could use air conditioner. Very hot not a lot of air circulation.
Our lake house is located 3 miles from the heart of downtown St. Albans in the area known as St. Albans Bay, and sits at the waters edge. This is the perfect spot to enjoy Lake Champlain year round. In the spring and summer months you have access to Lake Champlain for swimming, fishing and boating, and may have access to the private dock when it is in the water. St. Albans is home to the Vermont Maple Festival held annually for the last 49 years throughout the last weekend in April (2016 marks its 50th Anniversary). Less than one mile away, stop at the Bay Store and grab, what we call a creemee, a.k.a soft-serve, and go relax on the beach at the St. Albans Bay Park. The Bay park has plenty of parking, playgrounds, beach access, picnic tables, and beautiful views. Vermont is home to many state parks with day use access, one of them just across the Bay, Kamp KillKare State Park with a nice beach and a ferry over to Burton Island, another State Park. It's always nice to go for a scenic drive through Smugglers Notch into Stowe.
During the fall, you can take a drive through Smugglers Notch and throughout the Green Mountains to enjoy the best of Vermont's foliage, usually late September through early October. Many of your Spring and Summer activities can also be experience during the fall months as well.
Winter is host to all kinds of outdoor activities, ice fishing and x-country skiing are right off the deck on the frozen lake; Smugglers Notch and Jay Peak ski areas are less than an hour away and boast some of the best skiing in the east.
Snowshoeing, sledding, skiing and snowboarding are options on Hard'ack Hill for a fun free activity. Hard'ack is also a great place in the summer to mountain bike, and walk the trails... there you can find Overlook Pointe and see all of St. Albans, or find the gravestone on the top of the mountain that marks the grave of the last wolf killed on the hill in the 1800's. Hard'ack is also home to Marc's Bark Park, a fenced in dog park park.
St. Albans has a rich history, many of the older homes in the downtown were part of the underground railroad aiding in freeing slaves. The area is also home to the northern-most battle of the civil war, the St. Albans Raid. The St. Albans Historical Museum has many artifacts and details about this history. Interested in the seeing the birth place of one of our presidents? Take a short 15 minute drive to the birth place of Chester A. Arthur in Enosburg, VT.
So relax by the beach, take in a little history, or head to the mountains for more adrenaline filled activities, but stay here in our home, close to everything.
