Overview

Colchester Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom camp (cottage) with view of sheltered bay on Lake Champlain.

Relive those lazy days of yesteryear by the lake! This cozy 3-bedroom 1-bath seasonal camp on Malletts Bay holds all the charm and character of days gone by while including the comforts of home. Relax and watch the boats go by from the screened-in porch or take a dip in the lake off the private raft. The raft is also perfect for fishing or sunning. Blue Camp can sleep up to 8 (counting the sofa sleeper), although some guests enjoy sleeping on the screened porch for more of an outdoor experience. Limited dock space and mooring is also available for guests that want to bring their boat along. Fully equipped kitchen, dining area and living room with wood-stove for those cool nights. Quiet location is on a dead end dirt road within walking distance from the general store. For lakeside or Church Street dining, Burlington is accessible by bike (30-45 min on the community bike path), boat, or automobile (15 min). For the more adventurous, several zip lines are within 90 minutes and various restaurants are available on the NY side of Lake Champlain which can be crossed with your boat or by ferry. Bikes (4), a canoe and small row boat are included. Other attractions include hiking trails, mountain climbing, museums, wineries, boat tours,drive-in theatre and more.

Weekend Getaway

  • of 5
My friends and I just finished a four day weekend at the cabin. Here are some of the highlights:

Location - we were nervous about not staying in downtown Burlington but the location here served our needs perfectly. The backyard goes right on the lake and the views from the screened in patio are amazing (and much better than Burlington). Safe for swimming (if the water isn't too cold, that is). Also, there are two great bike paths (one on to the lake - see: Colchester Causeway) and another one right into Burlington along a scenic nature-filled route). And the place comes with four fully functioning bikes and helmets and a great ping pong table as well. The town has a general store, some cute little restaurants and a big supermarket. So all the basics. Burlington was about a 15-20 minute drive and we even took a taxi in to town on Saturday night for about $25/each way.

House - the house was really nice and on a quiet little street. Kitchen and bathroom were simple but clean and comfortable and fully functioning with no issues whatsoever. The highlight of the house is definitely the screened in patio. It was a bit cold in Mid-October but I can imagine how much fun it would be to have breakfast in the morning or a drink in the evening and just enjoy the amazing views on to the lake in the late spring and summertime.

Owner - John is a great Host! He was very responsive to any questions I had about the rental beforehand and even quickly responded to a couple of small questions while we were there. He stopped by to make sure we were all settled in as well. Just the right amount of interaction to not feel bothered but to know that if we needed anything he was there to help.

All in all a great place.

Perfect!

  • of 5
Great location. Exactly what I wanted in a quiet, rustic cabin on Lake Champlain. If you don't enjoy this place... than you and I are fundamentally different people. I loved being home in Vt in between travel and this was the absolute icing on the cake. Cabin is fully equipped for a tranquil stay and the owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this rental to anyone. Thanks

Great week at the Blue Camp

  • 5 of 5
We had an awesome week at the Blue Camp. The property was clean and well maintained; exceeding our expectations. John provided everything you could possibly need for a great week on the lake (kayaks, bikes, paddle board, dock available for a boat). I would definitely recommend to a friend or relative... looking forward to returning next year.

MAJESTIC LAKE CHAMPLAIN VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
We fell in love with Blue Camp the second we walked in the door. From the incredible view of the lake, to the kayaks, bikes, paddle board, ping pong, and the huge screened-in porch, we couldn't have been happier. Blue Camp comes ready to go, virtually everything you'd need to have a stress-free, lake front vacation is provided. The view is so astounding, you'll be compelled to sleep on the porch just to wake up with the sun coming up over the lake and the mountains. The owner, John, is a wonderful host and responsive to any of your needs. The dock access is a huge plus for those with boats, we have family with boats and they were able to pick us up and drop us off right from the dock throughout our week long stay. There's a cute bagel shop, pizza, creemee parlor, and a convenience store about a half mile away. If you wanna go out for great food or nightlife, Burlington is about 15 minutes in a car or $12 for a cab. We give Blue Camp and A+ and can't wait to get back next summer!

Wonderful, comfortable property.

  • 5 of 5
Well equipped lake cabin, comfortable and close to everything. Bikes for biking the Champlain Bike Path, and kayaks for enjoying Mallett's Bay. Burlington is close by with wonderful restaurants, and general exploring and shopping. Fabulous porch from which to watch boat activity, watch the sunrise with your first cup of coffee, or just sit and read. Thank you, John!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Blue Camp was wonderful. Plenty to do, kayaking, trails, great places to eat locally - Burlington is a 10 minute drive. In fact we had a many touristy things planned however we found it difficult to leave the property as it was so beautiful and peaceful. Quiet, residential setting with a nice big lawn which was great for our 2 year old! Definitely recommend this home for anyone looking for a nice, calm getaway!!

Sunset Drive-In Theatre is 2 miles away. Lake Champlain is the largest freshwater lake in the United States outside of the Great Lakes and has many picturesque islands and coves to explore. The Green Mountains of Vermont and the Adirondack Mountains of New York offer many hiking trails and scenic drives. With all of its natural beauty, low population density (second least populated state after Wyoming), and opportunities to experience the outdoors, Vermont is a popular destination spot for tourists (tourism is Vermont's largest industry).
