Lake Eden Chalet Rental Photos and Description
3-4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6
This beautiful Swiss chalet has been in our family for 50 years. We own 35 acres, 400 ft. is lakefront. The huge wrap-around deck, with its Adirondack chairs, overlooks Lake Eden and is perfect for morning coffee or afternoon board games. We eat most of our meals here or at the picnic table on the shore – just a short path away.
Lake Eden, a glacial lake, is considered one of the cleanest lakes in the state. We have two docks (one floating), a row boat, 2 kayaks, and a canoe. In keeping with our Swiss heritage, window boxes and wildflowers are everywhere. A lovely babbling mountain brook entices kids to catch frogs and visiting dogs to get a cool afternoon drink.
From the lake you can see Mount Norris, wonderful for hiking. A great blue heron has a nest across the lake. There are deer, fox, and we even know where to send you to see moose.
A World Away: There is a bench by the brook for reading and relaxing. Much of our time is spent outside. Late afternoon we enjoy the sunset, at night we gather for bonfires and to view the stars.
The decor is traditional Swiss. There is a queen-sized bed in the living room with a view of the fireplace, two bedrooms (one with two twin beds which can be pushed together, the other has a single twin bed), and our attic, although not fancy, has 3 twin beds and a full sized bed where the older kids love to 'hang out.'
We do allow dogs, but we ask that they are well trained and calm. This is not a place for wild nightlife (although you can find it in nearby towns) it's a place of pristine beauty, warmth, and fun for families!
Lots to do: If you are seeking more adventure, there is hiking and white water rafting nearby in Morrisville and Stowe. Stowe also has mini golf, movies and live theatre, golfing, an amazing bike trail and some of the world's best spas. In Stowe you can take a gondola to the top of Mt. Mansfield for beautiful views and a restaurant which serves lunch. Also, the mountain has an alpine slide. There's horse back riding in both towns too. Trappe Family Lodge (of the Sound of Music fame) has evening classical concerts in their meadow. Lake Eden offers great fishing, as do surrounding streams and lakes. And for a real treat you can charter a boat and go deep sea fishing in Lake Champlain. Our kids each caught 4 huge lake trout each, and had a ball doing it!
