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.
