Secluded Lake Champlain Home on 1200' of Frontage

Bedrooms 6
Half Baths2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, Sleeps 14

This rustic, Adirondack-style home is full of charms and quirks. Families and friends have been returning here, time after time, just to enjoy the magic that is 'Camp'. Nowhere on the Lake will you find such a setting as ours along with the casual freedom to enjoy the beauty of the Champlain region. The property sits in the middle of 5 acres of land, so the nearest neighbor feels just far enough away, and you can enjoy the peace and rustic charm of Camp, comfortably ensconced in your own room.

The entire home and grounds are at your disposal. There is a fully stocked kitchen, dining room and living room. The latter two rooms have large windows that look out over the Lake. There are two showers (one inside and one out) and two half-bathrooms (one downstairs, one on the second floor). There are 5 bedrooms in the main house and one in a separate building: Camp can sleep 14 comfortably.

From the property, you can enjoy the excellent back road riding on Grand Isle. There are also a dock, raft, and volleyball court onsite. Nearby, a local winery hosts concerts and tasting evenings, the Sunset Drive-In is only a short drive away in nearby Colchester, and our west-facing shoreline provides some of the most amazing sunsets you'll ever see. Convenient to Burlington (30 min) and Montreal (90 min), though once you arrive, you may not want to leave.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Rushford Family,

Firstly, I just wanted to thank you again for opening your lovely home to us! None of us wanted to leave!!! It was a glorious spot and the brave ones even went for a brisk swim!!! Brrrr, it sure was cold! The kids absolutely loved all the rocks and adventuring they did! The We all loved looking at your amazing family collages while dining! What a fun family it looks like you have. If we had more time we had joked that it would have been funny to print out all our photos from our weekend and hang them on the one empty cork board as a prank! Haha! The wedding we attended was so close and so much fun and the weather for it all was beautiful! Anyway, thank you again to your family, from our family and best wishes always!

Lakefront vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

As a UVM graduate I was familiar with the lovely Lake Champlain Islands, so I wanted a property next to the water, yet easily accessible to Burlington. We, along with two other families, found this private location with its spectacular view. There was plenty of sleeping room for us all and a large table with benches to accommodate many eaters, hungry after a full day of swimming, boating, and biking. The kitchen had been modernized, while the house's other rooms retained their old time rustic charm. There was even cable tv and a dvd player. We especially enjoyed sitting on the porch, grilling our evening meal, and feeling the breeze from the lake. It would be hard to find a better spot for a group of friends or family members to get together!

Incredible property

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for a week at the Rushford Camp and had a wonderful time. The house and location are amazing and water access and views unbeatable. Plenty of space with large bedrooms, a big dining room table and space to lounge in the living room or on the porch. The rustic feel of the place might not be for everyone but it was exactly what we were looking for.

Old fashioned summer House with Fabulious Rock Shore

  • 4 of 5

It was the hot spell! High ninties everyday. the water was perfect, the breeze was strong all day. Multiple fans made summer sleeping a reality. One must enjoy the hum and the fact the upstairs did not fully cool until the weather broke.

Plenty of play space for our young and the rocks easy to manage, the canoe and kayak a joy for the families.

We had been there 2 years a go. It is fantastic not to have to bring your own linens and the new mattresses are wonderful. Greatly appreciated additions.

A wonderful rustic spot. A step back in time causes one to fully relax and enjoy.

Great for a group

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the camp for a week with our friends and kids and had a great time. The house has plenty of space, and the beds are new and comfy! Access to the lake was a bit tricky for the little ones, but we found the cove on the property and used that area more. We loved using the kayaks and paddle board, and swimming to the dock was a favorite activity. I highly suggest checking out the Thursday night concerts at Snow Farm winery, it's only minutes away (we rode the house bikes there!)

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The camp was exactly what we were looking for. We had a group of 12 and the house had more than enough room. The waterfront was truly unique and unforgettable. We had a fire every night (right on the waterfront!) while the waves splashed off the rocks. The camp is definitely secluded but not in the middle of nowhere. We caught some live music at the winery less than a mile from the camp and Burlington is less than a 30 minute drive. The house if nicely furnished but it’s a vacation home, if you’re looking for 4-star amenities then you probably want to check something else out. The home was clean and full of character. Also, our lab was welcome at the camp! Absolutely perfect... We will be back for sure!! Thanks!
