Our names are Duane, Lyndon and Roxy (our Bichon Frisé Poodle mix). We live in San Diego. Duane grew up in Bristol, Vermont with Vermont ancestors from has far back as anyone can track and is an Architect. Ended up in San Diego in 1976 after going to College in Boston and Tempe, Arizona. My entire family still lives in the Bristol area. Lyndon is a 5th generation Californian on his fathers side and grew up in Bishop, California. On his mothers side, his Great Great Grandfather came across the country from Stowe, Vermont in a covered wagon in the mid 1800's and his Great Great Grandmother sailed from Delaware by way of the horn of South America about the same time and both settled in Independence, California where they met when it was still pretty much the wild west. He works in social services. Roxy is a rescue from an area close to the Mexican border. She has flown back to Vermont about 6 times so far and loves the rural living.
Duane purchased this house in 2006
Why Duane chose Bridport
Some of my fondest memories growing up in Vermont were the times spent at our Lake Champlain camp my family owned with 3 other families and remained my favorite place on earth. It was always a dream of mine to buy a place on the lake. We have spent much of our time on our bi-yearly visits making improvements on the house as well as enjoying time with family and friends and many wonderful gatherings at the house for birthdays, reunions, Holidays etc.
What makes this house unique
The end of the road location makes for a relaxing and quiet refuge amongst nature and the wonderful lake and mountain views from most of the house. These were very important in selecting a place on the lake. The limited number of camps along the lane also make it possible to interact with others enjoying this bucolic spot surrounded by quant villages, dairy farms and country roads. The close proximity to Middlebury and other towns in the area make for unlimited possibility for interesting things to do and see.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks so much!!! We had a wonderful visit and your home was perfect. Plenty of extras, very clean and just as described. We did a ton while we were there. Went on the Ben and Jerry's Tour, took a 10 mile bike ride through fields, woods, and back roads of Vermont, the men went to Lake Placid (which we had been to 5 years ago) while they women and kids went to Lake Dunmore, tubed down the Ausable Chasim in NY. The 4 adults went into Vergennes and had a fabulous dinner at Black Sheep Bistro, spent a day in Burlington and visited the campus of UVM (which our senior is seriously looking at attending :), took a boat cruise around Lake Champlain and last but not least spent 1/2 day at Shelbourne Farms. With all that we still were able to relax and enjoy your home. The wrap-around porch is the perfect place for playing games or having coffee in the morning and wine at night :). We watched plenty of movies (thanks for the wonderful selection) and fished and watched the dogs swim in the lake.
Again, thanks for your wonderful home and have a great rest of the summer.
