We have been renting cottages with our children and grandchildren each summer for the past nine years. Our stay at the farmhouse was everyone's favorite. The farmhouse is roomy and well maintained and the yard is expansive, so that even with three generations in the same house we each had our privacy. The porch swing, tire swing and screened in porch got plenty of use!
Though there is a lot to do in the area, we found ourselves spending most of our time on the island. We brought our bicycles and kayaks, so we biked and paddled daily. Though Lake Champlain is large it is relatively calm and there are plenty of nooks and crannies to explore. We also played badminton, horseshoes, pool, ping pong and board games. We swam on warm days and enjoyed a fire on the beach on more than one evening.
The house was very well laid out and equipped. The mud/laundry room was handy as was the outdoor shower. The kitchen was easy to cook in and had a big refrigerator (no coolers needed) and lots of counter space. In short, the farmhouse had everything needed for a great vacation.
