Car: Recommended

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.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Gene and Marilyn Sink are retired VT school teachers who now live on Cape Cod.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Albans City, VT, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property has spectacular views and direct lake access.
