Colchester Point Camp

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this camp. We have summered in Mallets Bay for over 40 years and this was our first stay elsewhere. I'll have to say, the location was wonderful. The owners were very accomodating and even went to far as to purchase a tea kettle and broiler pan for us! It was spotless and bed comfortable. Will definitely come back.

Very relaxing! Location is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at this cottage. We would love to come back someday. Burlington is 15-20 minutes away. We went to the drive-ins, parks, biked the causeway. The Shelburne and Echo museums are wonderful. The fire pit was great for s'mores and the yard over looks wetlands that is so peaceful in the morning having coffee. American flabread is a must for pizza in Burlington. The beach is right across the street and was great for my kids. Wonderful week 😊

Perfect Cottage, Perfect Spot....

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful rental. The owners seemed to think of everything you could possibly need at a home away from home. Every time we thought of something we needed we were able to find it just where you would expect it to be (linens, utensils,games, etc) . The location is on Colchester Point and couldn't be nicer. The homes are close together, but not on top of each other. It's on a quiet road with light slow speed traffic. Neighbors were nice and friendly. You have views of the water from both the front and back of the cottage. We found the proximity to downtown Burlington perfect (approx 15mins). There is a great park biking distance away and it has everything from horseshoes to baseball fields and everything in between. There is a 4 screen drive-in theater within 5mins of the cottage.

Great location, great cottage, great owners. Rent with extreme confidence.

Great spot near burlington on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent 2 bedroom house, open floor plan, bright and airy with everything you need. We enjoyed our sons graduation from UVM and spent a week here. The grill was a plus, and the place was perfect! We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property.

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for a week and had a great time. It only 10 min from Burlington and across the road from the Lake. There is a lake view from the front window, and view of the bike lake crossing from the back. The house was clean and had everything you could need, including cable and internet. It has an keypay entry door so no need to worry about losing or holding onto keys. We took daily walks down the private road and you can bike all over town from the house. There is plenty to do in nearby towns as well The owners were helpful with questions we had. We even left dress clothes from a wedding we went to. When we got home they mailed them back to us.

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just spent a week at this cottage and had a great time.

The location is excellent. The beach is across the street plus there is also water out behind the cottage -- nice sunsets. It is also a quick trip into Burlington (about 15-20 minutes) which we did many times.

The owners are ideal - friendly, easygoing and responsive.

We biked across the causeway to the islands (fun), kayaked, rollerbladed, and ran on the great bike paths. Lots to do.

There's a gas grill and a fire pit (we used both).

Highly recommend a stay here.
