HISTORIC LAKE CHAMPLAIN/ LAKEFRONT VACATION

Vergennes House Rental Photos and Description

5BR Lakefront, Vergennes, Vermont USA/ 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 9

This property has the best views and sunsets along Lake Champlain's 'Gold Coast.' The lakefront has a pretty, not-typical sandy beach. Vermont's premier resort, Basin Harbor Club, is in the next bay (0.2 mile by land), offering casual dining, golf, tennis, and other activities for our visitors. Lake Champlain is a large lake, 120 miles long; our view (southern) is of Westport, NY, 7 miles away, with Mt. Placid (site of the Winter Olympics) and the Adirondack Mountains in the background. There is plenty to do for the active, sports-minded; and it is an ideal spot for quiet relaxation and serenity.

Quote '..amazing region...extraordinary sunsets...enchanting scenery...'- Mark Twain.

The home has a fully equipped large kitchen. Amenities include towels, linens, washer/dryer, fireplace, dish-TV, WiFi, stereo, video library, DVD player, CDs, books, games, deck, canoe

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • non smoking only
Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to thank you so much for renting your wonderful house to us. We had an extremely restful vacation and enjoyed the spectacular beauty of the setting. A blast was had by all, from our babies right on up to my 95 year old grandmother. It was so wonderful, we hope to be able to rent it again next year!

Heavenly

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived at the house a neighbor yelled over to us - "you found us! welcome to our little slice of heaven!" truer words were never spoken. The location is spectacular! Apparently there is a good range of activities in the area - we only dragged ourselves away to hike Mt. Philo (breathtaking). Right from the property we fished, kayaked, fought over the hammock, - the property is large enough for a pick-up football or whiffle ball game. The neighbors were super friendly - one neighbor took the kids out tubing from his jet-ski AND lent us his skiff for the week. Who does that?
The house is immaculate, stocked with linens and even beach towels. We've been renting homes for 12 years, this is the first one stocked with hand soap and bar soap in every bathroom, coffee filters, paper goods - what a treat!
The home and the property and the neighbor really is a slice of heaven - so happy to have found it!

Family of 6 Repeat

  • 5 of 5
Once again, we had an amazing week on Lake Champlain. While the perfect weather certainly helped, the house once again met and exceeded our expectations. The views are beautiful, the house is wonderfully clean and updated, and all is completely turnkey. We absolutely love everything about this home - we wouldn't change a thing! While there is a lot to do nearby, the gorgeous weather kept us close to home, and between fishing, boating, reading and relaxing, everyone in the family was happy.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
We had an exceptional week on Lake Champlain at 509 Mile Point Road. The house is perfectly situated on the lake to take-in beautfiul sunsets and enjoy all measure of water sports. Mile Point is a small community with welcoming neighbors, many of whom are multi-generational families enjoying the summer together.

The house is well-maintained and comfortable - befitting a Vermont summer lake home. Plenty of room for three generations.

Many things to do - Basin Harbor Club, hiking Snake Mountain near Middlebury, blueberry picking in Charlotte - to keep you busy for the week. Trip to Shelburne Farms was a highlight. Good dining options in Vergennes (Black Sheep Bistro) and on a little further away on Route 7 (Starry Night Cafe).

This is the third or fourth VRBO home we have rented and it was excellent - relatively and absolutely.

Thank you

best I have found

  • 5 of 5
I have rented a number of times from VRBO, and this is my favorite. The location is not only physically beautiful, but the area is friendly, safe, and feels like home. The house is spacious, appointed with everything you could need, soap, tons of towels, a great kitchen, coffee filters and on and on. (and even better now, I left the stuff I took, not expecting there to be those things) There are lots of toys, a great back deck, great beds, and comfortable space for 10 adults. Also, it was spotlessly clean. I will happily stay here again. Thanks!

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5
The first thing you notice when you enter this home is that it is sparklingly clean. You go on to realize that it is fully stocked with new towels, kitchen gadgets - everything you need. There is an overhead fan in each room - beds are very comfortable and bathrooms seem to be brand new. Nothing disappointed! The location is terrific, and the views of the sunset are magical. I would highly recommend this rental - just not for the week that we hope to go back!

The Perfect Vermont Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We have been renting this beautiful cottage on the shore of Lake Champlain for many years and can't say enough about it. The cottage has been beautifully renovated and decorated, the lawn is large and flat, the proximity to Basin Harbor club is ideal for those looking for an afternoon cremee, and the view of the evening sunsets can't be surpassed! We look forward to returning year after year!

Mile Point on Lake Champlain is a beautiful, special place; couples, families and friends have gathered at this site to revitalize their spirits and recharge their batteries, many returning year after year. The Shelburne Farms and Shelburne Museum are local attractions, as well as fine restaurants in nearby Vergennes; casual dining next door at the Red Barn; Frog Hollow, in Middlebury, for Vermont's finest traditional and contemporary crafts; Maritime Museum with exhibits, historic artifacts, live demonstrations- with Lake Champlain's history, from explorer Samuel de Champlain, through the key naval battles of the Revolutionary War and War of 1812, up to the present day- and it is right in our bay!

A local grocery is close by; and a regular supermarket is in Vergennes.

Walking trails, state parks, biking trails, water sports, fishing, antiques, Fort Ticonderoga; there's always plenty to do or just relax, watching the sail boats from our deck.
