PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the lakehouse on South Hero for my honeymoon in September. It is a beautiful property in a beautiful location, right on the water.

The house has 3 bedrooms, including a phenomenal master bedroom with a deck, and is located in a perfect spot. Away from it all, yet easily accessible are Burlington VT and Montreal if you want more excitement.
There are plentiful farms and grocers that carry locally grown produce, and it is 1/2 hour drive to dozens of attractions.

This is the most peaceful place I've ever stayed and I was heartbroken to leave. In fact, I'm almost afraid to review it and let the secret out!

The owner is responsive and friendly and maintains the place beautifully.

I recommend it highly!

GREAT PLACE TO GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
20 minutes to Burlington and the NY ferry about 1/2 mile away...although you would never know it from inside the house. Location is great and provides plenty of peace and quiet. The kids and dog loved it. I would definitely go back.

AN AMAZING GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
When I booked a stay for my family and I at this idyllic spot, I had no idea we'd be staying in such a serene setting. The view is spectacular, the dock is an amazing place to spend the day sunning and watching the kids swim in the water. The sunsets are stunning to look at while either swinging in the hammock which hangs between the tress (pictured in the ad), or lounging on the deck in one of the Adirondack chairs. The house is both homey and roomy.The furnishings were comfortable, but not so new that I was stressed out worrying whether or not my four kids would muss them. The game room was an incredible spot for the kids to hang-out, play pool, and chat. The beautiful wood dining table suits the natural environment and wall of windows adds to one's enjoyment of the backdrop of foliage, mountains, and sky.And the spot is far enough from Burlington to make one believe he/she is far away from city life and close enough to Burlington to find whatever you may need or be looking for from a New England shopping spree. I will definitely return to this peaceful setting, either with family or a group of friends.

GREAT LOCATION, BUT LITTLE ELSE

  • 2 of 5
This house was once a great vacation house, but sadly no more. While the location was great, it's condition & cleanliness made me feel cheated. The photos on the website are very misleading when compared to the current conditions. In its day, the house & furnishings were top notch. Good quality & suited to the style. But currently it's very tired & worn. We arrived as the cleaner was leaving, but we should have left & he stayed to make it acceptable. Cobwebs, dust, overgrown shrubs, vines & weeds, dirty windows & carpet. Charcoal grill with no where for more ashes, but the ground. Clogged pipes in the master bathroom. Thread bare furniture, deck railings that are falling down, deck floor boards popping, holes in the deck that are not covered, deck furniture broken. Soffits missing & with holes to allow unwanted access. Outside doors that won't close. Steep & unsafe steps in multiple places. I could go on, but I think I've gotten my point across. The week was certainly not a total loss. There are some things that remain that make the experience tolerable, but I can't help think that with a little TLC, the vacation house would draw rave reviews instead of the one I've written. Hopefully, my assessment will allow any future renters to know what they will encounter if they choose to rent for a time, at least until all future renters realize that their money can be spent more wisely in another updated, clean facility.

Owner's Response: I’m sad and a little confused to read this review. This is a comfortable, lived-in house for families and pets and doesn't pretend to be anything else. However, there are no unsafe steps; no doors to the outside that don’t close (!); the furniture is not “thread-bare;” there are no clogged pipes in either bathroom; and the photographs are current. I have no idea what the ashes and the charcoal grill reference means. My cleaners are careful and thorough, but in this case (as the comment notes) the renters arrived before check-in time and chased them away. I’m sorry that they didn't have a nice time, but I’m also very sorry that they made no attempt to contact me with concerns. I now know that there is some broken deck furniture, which I could have replaced in about two hours if I had been told; instead, I read about it here and unfortunately the renters after them found broken furniture, too. The fact that they didn't want to report this makes their interest in warning future renters seem a little insincere. As for not being a good value, I research the local market carefully every year and my rates are always competitive. If this group had contacted me to complain about the price, I would have asked them to let me know if they could find a house of this size in a similar location that allows pets for less money. I would have been happy to refund the difference.

WISH WE WERE STILL THERE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with our 4 teenage children and 2 dogs at this beautiful, inviting home for a week surrounding Memorial Day. There had been record high water levels on Lake Champlain, and while we witnessed some homes under water on our approach to the island , this home was high enough and dry as a bone.

The purpose of our trip was to attend a family wedding on Grand Isle and this home was the perfect location and within 10 minutes of the wedding events. We also combined the trip with day visits to NH & VT to see colleges with our 2 younger children. We even drove for a day trip to Canada for the heck of it (only 26 miles away), but spent more time at the border crossing, returning to the US, than we did visiting Canada.

The house is well equipped, spacious and inviting. Sleeping in the master bedroom, with floor to ceiling windows on 2 sides, overlooking the lake, was like sleeping in a tree-house - I had the most rest in recent memory. The window treatments were also interesting - insulated, room-darkening quilted rolling shades, so for those who prefer a shaded room, you could adjust them accordingly.

We brought our own linens and towels and there was a washer/dryer which we used which worked well. I wish the dishwasher we have at home worked as well as the one in this home. The house has a lived-in feeling to it, which we prefer, especially having pets and teenagers. All the appliances we used worked well. We enjoyed some great meals there!

We invited over 10-12 family members, who were also in the area for the wedding, for a post-wedding cook-out and the home was the perfect venue for hosting such a gathering. Everyone felt relaxed and at home and there were plenty of conversation areas where people could gather, either on the deck, the lawn overlooking the scenic lake, the living room, kitchen, or recreation room with the pool table, As a matter of fact, some guests mentioned that the visit to this home was the highlight of their weekend.

Over the years we have rented many vacation homes in NH and VT and include this as one of the best. The owner left a nice hand-written note for us upon arrival, with several phone numbers to reach her, in case of emergency, as well as print outs of local attractions and weather forecasts. We never needed to call her.

Our only regret was never using the kayaks, due to the weather conditions, but that we will save for a return visit. Looking forward to another nap on the hammock!

I HAVE GONE BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN!!!

  • 5 of 5
When I need a mental break, I think back to the days of lounging on the deck, the dock, watching the clouds and sunsets over the lake. We have reunions there, and the house is plenty big for everyone. It is spacious and comfy . There is a great butcher block island in the kitchen with stools where people gather. I get hypnotized just watching the sail boats on Lake Champlain while the sun is setting. Just a short way up the road there is a charming car/pedestrian ferry ride over the lake to New York; the walking and biking are great.
The house is on South Hero island, only a short drive from the airport, but it's like going to another world. It is a great place to drive around, with farms and amazing views of the lake. Wonderful local grocery (with local produce and baked goods. yum) and gas station. It's a place where you can really get a feeling of being "someplace else", a taste of Old Vermont. (ask about the castles all over the island!) You can go to Burlington for dinner and have a pleasant ride home over the wide causeway to the island.
The house is open and airy, with old beams and huge glass. It's comfortable, has a big dining table and comfortable beds. There is a pool table and lots of spaces for kids to play. The dogs love it too!!!
I definitely recommend this place, I plan to go back again, wish I were there now.

The Lake Champlain Islands are a summer vacation paradise. Swimming, fishing, boating, biking, golf, peace and quiet, but only 25 minutes to Burlington for great nightlife and shopping. Many excellent restaurants nearby, theater, music. Ride your bike to outdoor concerts at the local winery! Less than an hour to several ski resorts for mountain biking and hiking. Also a perfect base for foliage touring in our legendary fall!
