Description of the Lake Champlain vacation cottage rental
Return to a quieter time of tranquility, privacy, and peace. Our cottage is a place you can rock on the deck or the lawns and gaze at the lake's neverending beauty, hear the loons, and enjoy the sunset over the lake's islands and the Adirondacks beyond. Or you can swim in the crystal clear water or just sit on the beach. If you want to be more active you can fish off the shore or from the canoe or the small row boat which come with the cottage. Or you can hike up the trails on Eagle Mountain and view the incredible beauty all around. Or just go for a long walk or bike ride on the miles of quiet dirt roads that you must cross to get to the camp.

The two bedroom cabin has been fully renovated in 2006 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 large living room, which now incorporates the old porch, has a wall of windows looking out over the lake just feet away. The kitchen is fully updated with full size gas stove, refrigerator, microwave, toater oven, coffee maker and all the necessary cookware, dishes and utensils. There is a gas grill and picnic table outside.

There are two private and separated bedrooms, including the master bedroom with sliding glass doors leading onto the outside deck. The master bedroom has a double size bed and the second bedroom has a double bed. There is also a futon couch in the living room.

Finally there is the front deck off the living room and master bedroom overlooking the Lake, some small and large islands and the Adirondacks beyond.

We also rent a home two doors away if you are looking for something larger or to combine two homes for a
family or shared vacation with friends. See VacationHomeRentals Listing #22467
Lovely Private Home Directly On Lake Champlain

Area Information
The cottage is located on Cold Spring Road in Milton at the base of Eagle Mountain which is the highest point immediately adjacent to Lake Champlain. Most of Eagle Mountian and the surrounding lakeshore is preserved by the Lake Champlain Land Trust. The cottage is on the
eastern shore of the lake halfway between Burlington and St Albans and overlooking the Lake Champlain Islands.

The most recommended activity is to do nothing. Or almost nothing. Relax. Wind down. Nap. Read. Do a jigsaw puzzle. Watch the sunset. Putter around. There is a TV/DVD combo if you do need some electronic entertainment but there is limited TV reception or only a dial up internet connection.

If you want to be more active. Walk the long, long private road or miles of connected dirt roads. Hike the trail from the property up Eagle Mountian and enjoy sweeping views of the lake, islands and mountians. Swim. Fish. Bike. Go for a boat ride. Build a fire on the beach and roast marshmallows

It's the second year that I rent this beautiful little cottage on the Champlain lake. It's just perfect for a couple or a little family. The view is fantastic and the lake is quiet. We had a nice time bathing and kayaking.

Not only was the view from both decks gorgeous, the house cozy and well stocked, the beach awesome, with canoes and kayaks, picnic table, etc. but my kids did not complain once about not having a tv. We visited Burlington (easy 20 min. trip from house), Ben and Jerry's, rented a boat on the lake, and went to Canada and even a drive in movie. The house is extremely private and nestled in the woods. Loved it. Thanks Julie!

The location of this cottage could not be more ideal. Located above the causeway, there is limited boat traffic and the dead-end road on which it is located also provides for very limited traffic noise. Overall, it is a very serene location with fantastic sunset views. The cottage itself is rustic as described, but we found it quite lovely. The furniture--as we suspected from the photos--could be slightly more comfortable, but it was fine for a week's worth of time. There is, however, a slight problem with a rocking toilet that will hopefully be repaired soon. The kitchen is relatively well-equipped and the layout of the cottage is quite comfortable for traffic flow. The on-site canoe and kayak were in good working order and it was easy to paddle directly from the shore of the cottage's beach. We would certainly consider a week's rental here again and thank the owners for their opening such a gem to renters.
