Lakefront 3 Bed/1 Bath Cottage With Breathtaking Views Of Lake Champlain
About Chris Poulin
We are two hard working professionals in the physical therapy and sports performance industry. We travel a lot ourselves and take many of our experiences to continue to improve our guests experience while they stay in the cottage. We grew up in Vermont and currently live in North Carolina but return to our cottage frequently to enjoy all that it has to offer.
Chris Poulin purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Chris Poulin chose Swanton
This cottage as been our family retreat since we bought it in 2006. We have poured time, money and a lot of heart into this cottage. We moved our family to NC in 2012 and now we want to share our private escape with others. You will leave your cares behind the moment you step foot onto "Poulin Shores". May you love this place as much as we have. Looking forward to having you back every year.
What makes this Cottage unique

Nearly all of the properties are occupied by their owners due to the great community feel and family friendly atmosphere. We want you to make memories and try to include as much as we can for you to do that.

Beautiful views and nice open floor plan cottage. So thankful for the woodstove, as we lost power, a
Nice quiet road. So thankful for the woodstove (and wood provided), as we lost power for 9 hours, due to a crazy storm. Great place, great views.
Our stay at the lake
The house warm and inviting. It was exactly as it appeared online. It was well stocked with amenities. The property is beautiful. We experienced magnificent sunsets each night. The host was friendly and responsive. We had a wonderful stay.
Patty, I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the honest review. We will continue to strive to make our guests experience the best possible.
Great cabin right on the shore of Lake Champlain! Wonderful view and beautiful sunsets! The “cabin” is huge! Would sleep 7 comfortably! Nice comfy beds with down comforters. Plenty of storage and for once, plenty of hangars! Kitchen is adequate, with any kind of utensil you may need. The skillets were a little rough, but I don’t blame that on the owners, I have found that no matter how much VRBO owners try to provide good cookware, people manage to ruin them 😢�. Plenty of dishes, glassware, and silverware is stocked. Huge bathroom, adequately stocked. Chris was very responsive to all questions and communication. Tons of books and games provided. The only complaint that we had was that the TV in the bedroom would not work 😕�. But the one in the living room worked great. To use the one in the living room: Press TV, All Power, Input, and OK. Great front porch, and an Apple tree in the backyard! I will warn you!: Check the trash cans on Thursday, because they were completely full and we were not able to put our trash in them. Trash only runs once a week on Friday morning, and you are not allowed to put the cans out until Thursday night. We just “assumed” that the cans would be empty and we checked out on Wednesday. We felt awful, that we had not understood about the trash situation, but I contacted Chris and I believe that we resolved that issue. The owners are constantly making improvements to the house, and we would definitely stay there again! It is rustic, but that’s what we were expecting, and we enjoyed it very much! Thank you for sharing your home with us! Note: we visited Brannon Family Farms and Sugarbush Farms and bought tons of Maple Syrup and Cheese! Also visited several apple orchards, and everyone was so nice and friendly!! Wonderful Vacation!!!!

Vermont Lakeshore Memories!
Thank you so much for a wonderful family reunion Chris! Your hospitality, cottage and surroundings were above and beyond. My husband grew up on the lake and this brought back so many memories. The spacious open floor plan, bedrooms and cottage itself provided ample room and far exceeding the listing details! My adult kids thoroughly enjoyed and we all look forward to making this an annual vacation!
