This is a great place to stay! I would recommend this place to all my family and friends. If your coming with kids or without this place is great for any age. The view of the lake each day was wonderful! Also the location of the house is central to all things you want to do. Please don't be afraid of the compost toilet it was so easy to use, and it is nice to know we were helping the environment!
This cabin is not fancy, but it was comfy and a perfect fit for our family. The sun porch was a preferred hang out.
We enjoyed fishing for "sunnies" right off the dock, our 3 1/2 yr old daughter caught so many she is now hooked on fishing! Our 2 yr old had fun catching toads and playing in the boat on shore. We did take the paddle boat out a few times. We liked the short walk to the boat launch and the rec. path to the playground.
The composting toilet was no big deal, the kids actually got a kick out of it. We had to get used to the smaller amount of hot water, but that wasn't a big deal either. The only thing I was a little confused about was the description of the beds was different than they were when we got there, but for us it worked fine. And the wifi was not reliable but we didn't care because we were on vacation. We did wish there was a better selection of kids VCR tapes, or a DVD player, but most of the time we were outside fishing or out on a few day trips near by that we didn't have time to watch TV anyways.
We went to Echo in Burlington, awesome for younger kids. Same for Shelburne Farm. We also did a State Park Day, if you pay for a day pass you can go into as many VT state parks as you want on that day. We hit 3 along Lake Champlain. We also went across on the Ferry to NY and had dinner on the NY side at a cute place called Dockside with outside dining and things for the kids to do. Plus it was near an awesome playground that looks out at the lake.
There are so many things to do in the area if you want to "do" something, or if you want to stay away from the masses the cabin was the prefect place to do that too.
As a busy mom of 2, I was happy to just have a safe quiet place and to finish a whole novel the week we were away. (oh ya, the washer and dryer were a bonus) !
this place was absolutely wonderful and a true value. Much of the interior flooring and walls appeared new and everything extremely clean and charming. My husband caught a bass within five minutes of heading out with the poles provided. It only took 20 minutes to get to all the destinations in Shelburne we were planning our trip around.
The screened in porch was a true delight. We had the lake much to ourselves during the week with the other homes occupied on the Weekend.
while we were there was a five minute power outtage after which the alarm kept beeping. The problem was quickly resolved with a phone call to the owner who was already notified and trying to solve the issue.
Great fishing, quiet-water boating, birding & wildlife viewing. Our property is conveniently located halfway between Burlington and Middlebury Vermont. This picturesque, waterfront cottage is in a beautiful rural setting & is only minutes away from great shopping, antiquing, hiking, swimming, playgrounds, biking & more!
