Enjoy the quiet and the privacy. Swim and fish in the incomparable water, join the hummingbirds and gold finches as they enjoy our many flowers, see the blue herons, hear the woodpeckers, watch the loons, the turkey buzzards, and the other feathered friends and you might be lucky and watch an eagle fish and/or eat his catch. It is beautiful and the water is breathtaking.
Dad bought this property before I was born, and I built the home in 2004/5. I live here most of the time between May and the end of October, except when I am sharing it with old and new friends.
As a kid I camped out here, as I did with my children. Dad loved the lake and its incredible waters.
My background is as a professional, and I am a published writer.
It IS a home, and is furnished as one. It is the best lake rental in Vermont.
If you want a quiet place with lots of outdoor activities you will not find a better place. It is solidly built and is not a camp. With an all wood interior, plenty of space for family, and very pleasant surroundings, it is ideal for families or couples.
Inside and outside you are looking out over the lake. When you get here, grab the loft bedroom, with its views of the lake, before the kids see it.
It is a place to which you will want to return, and one which I could never sell.
Not far away is wonderful and historic Lake Champlain which is the most important waterway in U.S. history. A short drive and a scenic ferry ride take you to 'America's Fort', Fort Ticonderoga, with its great views, history, and hands on activities for children and adults.
Sunset Lake is for someone who wants to get away from blacktop, box stores, and traffic, and who enjoys the outdoors from a real home.
I remember, before there was a road into the west end of the lake, crossing the lake in a canoe sitting in Mom's lap with Dad paddling. He went the Scout Camp, on a nearby lake and fell in love with it, as my children and I have, and as you will.
As I intimated above, bring your children here, and you will have them willing captives for the time you are here.
Or, bring someone with whom you want to spend some romantic time, just you and he/she, and have real time together, and fall in love all over again, and again.
As you sit on the deck sipping your morning coffee, the sun's viberant rays sparkle like diamonds shimmering on the water's surface. The musical voices of nature smooth your soul until you are ready to play,swim,fish or go canoeing to explore the lake. Hiking the paths in the woods and exploring the fruits the forrest, to bring back your own bouquet of natual wonders to adorn the table for the next meal, is always a treat! Drive back to the highway, down the dirt road and you at at your favorite horse show or in the social world of hussle and bussle in moments. This cottage is a vacation paradise for the active or the reflecting writer. A place for a romantic get away, a family get together or three couples who want to get out of the city!
I cannot get back to this home away from home soon enough and I trust you will feel the same way too when you get here!
