Cute efficiency, 1-bath lakefront cottage on beautiful Lake Champlain in Bridport, VT located in the heart of the Lake Champlain Valley near Middlebury (11miles) about half way between Burlington and Rutland. Cedar sits perched directly on the lake on a dead-end road with no through traffic so is very private. Enjoy the spacious deck that sits 16’ above the lake providing spectacular views of Champlain and the Adirondack mountains. This small and quaint cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway or a terrific base for road biking with routes directly from the cottage through the rolling hills, corn fields and farmland of one of the most beautiful areas in the Lake Champlain Valley which many feel rivals the beauty of Tuscany. In the summer months enjoy farmer's markets in nearly every nearby town (the kitchen has everything you need to create a gourmet meal) or explore the abundance of craft breweries in this area of Vermont. The charming towns of Bristol (14 miles) and Middlebury (11 miles) both have excellent restaurant, bakery and pub options.
Full kitchen, WiFi, bath with shower, flat screen TV, queen bed, and extra futon. Outside propane grill, screened-in porch attached to camp, and additional large deck down the wooden walkway, which overlooks the lake include plenty of outdoor seating. There is also a campfire ring by the camp for toasting s'mores (wood can be purchased locally by the bundle).
Boating, Bass and Perch Fishing is terrific. Bikes and two row boats are available for your use! There is swimming out away from the beach (we get in off the rowboat). There can be weeds on the shoreline in summer so it is not great swimming for children. Best for 2 adults who want a quiet getaway with beautiful views, boating, fishing, biking and exploring.
Local activities include biking, hiking, fishing, boating, sailing, antiquing, golfing or visiting many historic places in VT , Adirondacks of New York and the great breweries nearby. Middlebury College has a terrific Museum of Art. For activities including music venues on Lake Champlain & near Middlebury, use "learn more" links at top of regional pages or look online.
