Description of the Lake Champlain vacation home rental

When you visit our private lakefront home located on a rural dead end road on Lake Champlain you can enjoy a quintessential Vermont lake vacation. You can choose to enjoy a quiet time of tranquility, privacy, and peace. If you choose to be more active, this is the perfect place to bike, hike, canoe, kayak, swim and fish. And then, there is the rest of the Vermont to explore!

This vacation home is located on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain looking west over small islands and "Grand Isle", the largest island in the Lake Champlain Islands. The home faces west towards the summer sunsets. The vacation home is about a 30 minute drive from Burlington and from St Albans. It is a ten minute drive from the "Sandbar" which is the connection of the Lake Champlain Islands to the eastern shore of Vermont.

The home is near the end of a dead-end dirt road with little traffic. It is located on a wooded lot on a bluff above the lake. While there are homes on either side, they are spaced well apart and the hedges, woods and distance make the home very private. The beach is accessed by about 25 steps down to the lake shore which is small pebbles.

The water is clean and crystal clear.

This three bedroom house has been fully renovated in late 2013 and has been freshly painted inside with warm cozy colors and decorated with comfortable and inviting furnishings. It is full of light and fresh air.

The home is a hillside ranch with the upper floor with the living room, dining room, kitchen, full bathroom and two bedrooms and a hugh screened porch along the entire side of the house facing the lake. The lower floor has a very large family room and a very large bedroom with private bath and laundry room.

You will likely spend most of your time on the screened porch off the upper floor which is the full length of the house and overlooks the lake, small islands, Grand Isle and the Adirondacks beyond.

On the upper floor the large living room and dining face the lake through the porch and over the southern lawn. Between the living and dining rooms is a wood stove style gas heater which can be used to take off the chill at the flick of a switch.

The kitchen is fully updated with full size electric stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and all the necessary cookware, dishes and utensils. A grill and picnic table are provided outside.

There are two private bedrooms upstairs. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and the second bedroom has two twins. There is a full with tub and shower.

On the lower floor The levels are connected by a lovely open stair in middle of the house.

Half of the lower floor is a a huge family room with 2 couches which pull out to double beds.

There is a TV/DVD/VCR combo if you do need some electronic entertainment but there is limited TV reception so bring or rent DVDs.

The other half of the lower floor is a large bedroom with a double bed, a private bath with shower and a laundry room.

There is local phone service connection and dial up interent service. Bring a cell phone for long distance calls.

Area Information

When you visit our lakefront home located on a rural dead end road on the western shore of Lake Champlain you can enjoy a quintessential Vermont lake vacation. You can choose to enjoy a quiet time of tranquility, privacy, and peace. You can rock on the screened porch or on the patio and gaze at the lake's never-ending beauty, hear the loons, and enjoy the sunset over the bay and the Adirondacks beyond. You can wind down. Nap. Read. Do a jigsaw puzzle. Watch the sunset. Putter around. Just sit on the beach or the lakeside patio.

If you choose to be more active, this is the perfect place to bike, hike, canoe, kayak, and fish. You can swim in the crystal clear water. You can fish right from the shore. The area has miles of rolling paved and unpaved roads for biking.

Or you can just go for a long walk on the miles of quiet dirt roads.

But if you want to leave the camp but not go far away--

It's 10 minutes to the Sand Bar State Park with Vermont's longest sand beach, where you can rent kayaks and windsurfers or the marina at Apple Island Resort (Apple Tree Bay) where you can rent a boat to explore the islands or play on a small pitch and putt golf course

It's 10-15 minutes to the village of South Hero, where you can get a burger or ice cream or visit the apple orchards for which the island is famous and pick up a delicious Papa Ray's Apple Pie, shop for antiques, visit the Snow Farm Winery with surprisingly good grape wines--go for a tour, or attend one of the many concerts held there during the summer.

If you want to leave the Lake (and you may not) --

It is 20 miles and 30 minutes to Downtown Burlington
It's about the same to the charming town of St Albans
In 45 minutes you could visit the world renowned Shelburne Museum
and Shelburne Farms or the nearby Teddy Bear Factory.
In less than an hour you can be at the Ben and Jerry's factory or
travel 15 minutes more and be in Stowe.
In an hour you could participate in the Summer activities at
Smuggler's Notch.
Or in 90 minutes you could be in downtown Montreal.

There's lots to do if you wish to leave the camp but you may not want to.

Wonderful setting!

This home is set right on the lake, where you fall asleep every night to the sound of waves against the shore. Very peaceful and relaxing. The home itself has all of the basic necessities (not much for TV reception, so be sure to bring DVD's if that's your thing or just plenty of books for reading, which is what we did). The owner was very welcoming. This home is located approx 20 minutes north of Burlington, which has some great local restaurants and pubs/breweries. Lots of things to see and do. Also, head further north along the shore of Lake Champlain for other scenic drives. We had a great time in Northern Vermont!

Charming Get-Away

My daughter and I spent 3 nights at this lovely cottage recently. We had a relaxing, wonderful time and the environment was everything we had hoped for. The setting and view were spectacular and the sunsets were picture perfect. We kayaked, relaxed on the beach, grilled a nice dinner, read and rested on the comfy porch where we stared at the lake. The cottage itself was clean and well appointed, with nice touches throughout. We definitely plan to return to this lovely place!
