Ferrisburg House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms + Family Room With Queen Sofa Bed, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)
Our year round home has one of the best locations on Lake Champlain with over 300 feet of easy access lakefront. Situated at the end of a road on beautiful Summer Point, the views of the Lake and Adirondack mountains are breathtaking as are the picture perfect sunsets. Swimming is made easy with walk in access from the shoreline or from the swim ladder on the large cement dock. Fishing can also be enjoyed from the dock and a mooring is provided for those who wish to bring their boat. There is a two level deck overlooking the lake that is outfitted with Adirondack and lounge chairs and other outdoor furniture from which to take in the view, eat a meal, or star gaze. By land, guests can enjoy horseshoes, volleyball, badminton, and croquet on the large, level lawn or swing to your heart's content in one of two tree mounted swings or hammock. Bikes are also available for exploring the area or riding to the Basin Harbor Club for ice cream. By sea, explore the lake in our Adirondack guide boat (life jackets of all sizes provided) or feel free to bring your own water vessel.
You'll enjoy lake views from every room of the house. On the main floor you'll find the master and quest bedrooms (Queen beds), two full baths, a large great room with fireplace, satellite TV, game/dining table and seating area, fully equipped kitchen overlooking the great room, dining room, family room with satellite TV and comfortable sofa bed, and laundry room. There is also a screened porch on this level that sits just 30 feet from the water and is perfect for nighttime relaxation. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms (Queen and two Twins, each with air conditioning), half bath and a bi-level loft with office area and sitting area. An automatic generator provides power in the event of a power failure.
