Overview

About the property

5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large deck w/ sunset views and beach access

Our family cabin is located on scenic Thompson's Point, nestled among cedars with stunning views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks, close to the music of the waves and the clear, bright canopy of summer stars. The deck is the center of the action, with a grill and front row seats for magnificent sunsets. The great room features a full dining table, picture windows to take in the view, and a newly remodeled kitchen. We have one of the few beaches on Thompson's Point and well as a dock for swimming. The cabin is close to hiking and shopping (Shelburne, Burlington, Middlebury). It's a lovely place to gather with family and friends and explore the rich cultural and natural life of the Champlain Valley and beyond.

The parking area can accommodate 3 cars. Please be aware that there are 36 stairs from the parking area to the cabin, and another couple of dozen from the cabin down to the beach.

Please note we have an 11% discount for weekly stays (7 days).

About Matthew Baker & Corrie Blankenbeckler

Matthew is a librarian and Corrie works in education. They are the fourth generation stewards of this very special place.

Why Matthew Baker & Corrie Blankenbeckler chose Lake Champlain

My great-grandfather began building this cabin in the 1930s, and it has been affectionately cared for by members of our family ever since -- five generations now. The place is beautiful, restful, simple -- on a shady, cedar-quiet slope in the companionable presence of Lake Champlain. It has been the site of large, joyful gatherings and quiet retreats. It is an ideal location to cook, talk, walk, swim, disappear with a book, recharge the batteries, or catch up with loved ones. There are so many things to explore nearby: hiking, shopping, charming towns and winding, picturesque roads.

What makes this cabin unique

At the cabin, you are always in the presence of Lake Champlain, which can be comfortingly calm as well as exhilaratingly rough. Few things are more wonderful then falling asleep to the sound of waves on the rocky shore. The stars on a clear night are overwhelming. There are spots to be alone, with the deck and great room serving as common gathering places. The deck is open to it all and morning, afternoon, and evening one can sit and soak it the lake, sky, the fresh air, and feel a sense of rest and refreshment.

Enchanted Thompson's Point cottage on Lake Champlain

  • 5 of 5

Two years in a row we have rented this cottage for a group of international visitors. Everyone loved staying here - beautiful views, great spots for conversation and for sharing cooking/meals. The owners are a pleasure to work with. Thank you!

The property was properly labeled as rustic and quaint. It had a wonderful cabin on the lake feel.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arranged a vacation at this wonderful place and it suited our needs perfectly for wonderful fall weekend on Lake Champlain where my family and I have vacationed for 2 generations. The property suited our needs for the weekend perfectly. Thank you for that opportunity to spend a weekend together on the lake that we all will remember forever. Sincerely, Deborah Olanyk

Wonderful, quiet, spotlessly clean rustic cabins with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We (a group of 6 friends) loved our stay in the 3 cabins in October 2015. We spent most of our time in the 'great room', which contains the kitchen and fireplace with a gas heater. The lake/mountain/sunset view from the great room was absolutely spectacular, as were the sounds of the lake waves lapping at the bottom of the property. There are other cabins around, but the way the cabin is nestled into the landscape makes it feel very private, you will see nothing but lake lake lake! All the cabins were very clean and we noticed the owners provided a lot of thoughtful 'extras' for their guests. The kitchen was well-stocked in terms of cooking supplies utensils dishes wine glasses etc. Again, so clean and no musty smell, as you might expect from a 1940s cabin on a lake! We had to contact the owners at one point over the great room heater and they could not have been more nice and responsive and resolved the issue ASAP. One thing to know before renting is that there is a flight of steep stone stairs (with a rail) to access the property; if you have trouble with stairs this is not the place for you. Also it was quite chilly at night during our stay and only the great room has heat, which the owners warned us about fully in advance--but this didn't bother us. We plan to return!
