Vacation Rentals on Lake Champlain

The Lake Champlain region of Vermont offers unlimited opportunities for fun and excitement on one of the nation's largest natural bodies of water. Measuring a full 120 miles in length, Lake Champlain offers plenty of room for boaters to find their own secluded area to fish, swim, or simply sail along the peaceful surface. If you prefer to enjoy the sites from the coastline, you can still cast a line or hike the shores to view the local wildlife.

Here are a few of the best reasons to spend your vacation time on Lake Champlain.

Vermont Vacation Rentals on Lake Champlain

You'll find a wide variety of vacation rentals in this part of Vermont. Whether you're looking for a lakefront home or a peaceful retreat off the beaten path, there's a property available to meet your family's needs perfectly. If money isn't an issue, choose a luxury home with a private beach complete with your own dock, a personal hot tub, and a private tennis court. As you explore this park-like setting, you'll feel like you managed to reserve the entire lake for your family.

For just a little less, you can find an authentic log cabin that offers many of the same amenities, but on a slightly smaller scale. This option will give your family a true taste of Vermont as the home blends in perfectly with its natural surroundings. If you choose to combine your love of water sports with a fall vacation to see the charming New England autumn foliage, you'll never find a lovelier lodging option than a log cabin on Lake Champlain.

If you're on a tight budget, you can find Vermont vacation rentals on Lake Champlain that are almost cheaper than staying at home! You'll even be right on the lake. The more basic accommodations will let you enjoy what you really came for, without emptying your bank account.

Was that Champ?

No trip to Lake Champlain would be complete without trying to spot Champ, this region's version of the Lock Ness Monster ! Champ is rumored to inhabit the deepest part of the lake, but no one has managed to snap even a foggy photograph of this slick creature. According to eye-witness reports, he's serpent-shaped with a horse-like head.

Whether Champ is a land-locked sea monster or an as-of-yet undiscovered fish, don't miss your chance to tell everyone you know that you caught a glimpse of this famous aquatic creature from the window of your Vermont vacation rentals on Lake Champlain. Of course, if you don't spot him, you can always purchase his likeness on a T-shirt or coffee mug to take back home.

Cruising Lake Champlain

While many vacationers bring their own boat to Lake Champlain, this isn't a requirement to spend a day on the water. If you're an experienced boater, you can always rent a variety of boats from the local merchants including:
  • Lake Champlain Sailboat Rentals and Charters - Sail away on your own or charter a boat with a full crew.
  • Waterfront Boat Rentals - Choose from canoes, kayaks, rowboats, skiffs, and Boston Whalers.
  • North Hero Marina - This is a full service marina, including boat rentals.
  • Westport Marina - Traditional power-boat rentals
If you're not comfortable behind the wheel or handling the sails on your own, enjoy Lake Champlain boat tours offered by Northern Lights Lake Champlain Boat Tours, Shipwreck Tours or Ticonderoga Ferry.

When you spend your vacation in a charming rental home on Lake Champlain, your entire family will remember Vermont for a lifetime. What will you do during your trip to Lake Champlain?
