Perfect home layout for two-family get-away

  • 5 of 5

We picked this property for a week-long vacation due to its west-facing shoreline on Lake Champlain (for the sunsets, which didn’t disappoint), as well as its featuring to equal sized bedrooms equipped with queen sized beds for the two couples. Our girls, aged 12 and 14, and 13 and 13, respectively, enjoyed staying in the two rooms on the lower level where they had a little privacy from the adults. We much enjoyed having no TV on the main level, so as not to be distracted from the view, however enjoyed having a big screen available downstairs for movie-night. The main area was a hit for reading and games, both at the generous table, or around the many couches and chairs.

Only complaints – all those no-see'em bugs after sunset! However, we’re at a lake house, so that’s to be expected. After the first night, we figured out which windows had screens that were a little loose and closed those windows and the problem was solved. Also - holy wind, Batman! We had great weather the entire week, but the wind was constant from the west, which made kayaking a challenge for the smaller girls. However, once around lighthouse point, the waters were calm and boating easy. Two kayaks and life vests provided worked great, wood for the fire pit was provided – over all, the stay was made very easy.

Kudos to Dave – he was very responsive to all questions during pre-registration, prior to our trip, and during our stay. Many owners on VRBO seem perturbed when contacted, and are less than responsive – Dave is a pro… very easy to deal with. I’d give five stars just for the ease of dealing with him. Wish we could stay longer, but the real world awaits our return…

Owner's Response: I KNOW IT IS KIND OF A MAGICAL PLACE, BUT I THINK YOU FOUND WHAT THE LAKE HOUSE IS ALL ABOUT AND MADE THE BEST OF EVERYTHING IT HAS TO OFFER. WE DID AN OUTSIDE FLYING INSECT KILLER AND IT SEEMED TO WORK WELL. IN THE FUTURE WE WILL DO A SECOND SPRAYING. THANKS FOR THE 5 STARS, I REALLY TRY TO EARN THEM DAVE

Beautiful home with breathtaking sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family of eight thoroughly enjoyed the roominess of both the house and the yard, kayaking during the day and a fire at night, board games and everyone joining in to cook meals. Thank you for letting us bring Harley, my sons' dog, she ran circles around the yard and loved chasing the many tiny frogs. We even ventured into Canada for the

day as you are so close to the border. What a great option!

Burlington,VT was only an hour away, a beautiful town with many

small shops and a great farm to table restaurant ,The Farmhouse, wonderful! My brother stopped by for a day visit and stayed for

three days , he was so taken with the property and the sunsets!

Thank you again for sharing your home!

Beautiful Views and fantastic fishing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Dave was very helpful with questions once we arrived at his place. Fantastic spot for relaxation. Burlington is an hour south, which has fantastic breweries, and alchemist was not the best. 15 minutes north into Canada is an awesome cheese place that is ridiculously cheap compared to philly. Air conditioning isn't even needed in this house, and most rooms have that awesome view. The only thing i would change if i could, is have the place slightly closer to burlington, but then you probably wouldn't have the fantastic north champlain fishing. Definitely recommend this place for a week getaway from the city!
