Spacious house, great view, easy to be here

5 of 5
Only a quiet gravel road separates the house from the shore. You're on a tiny little spit of land on a quiet corner of Lake Champlain (at least at the end of November; there's almost no one here.) From the main living space (dining, living, kitchen) one looks out the front windows through the screen porch, across the road to the deck with benches and chairs built above the gravel slope down to the water, and from there west across the lake. There's a place on the shore for a bonfire, tho we had too much rain. Lots of room indoors for 2 adults, 2 dogs, 2 teens and a pre-teen. I taught my kids to play Scrabble and there are decks of cards, crayons and games for little kids. Heat, air conditioning, washer-dryer, well-equipped kitchen -- we came for Thanksgiving and could have cooked and carved our turkey here instead of at home. 2 refrigerators. No dishwasher; plenty of dishes or bring paper. 2 kinds of coffee makers, no popcorn maker but there's a microwave. Remember to drink the bottled water (provided), but the filtered lake water is just fine for washing, bathing/showering, making coffee, boiling potatos, and giving the dogs to drink. The water pump in the back utility room is barely noticeable and the rest of the house is very quiet. So is outside. Big back yard has a nice tie-out for a dog, and you can reach it out the back door without stepping off the low back deck, which also has gas grill and the trash and recycling cans. Front bedroom (queen) has view of the lake, sliding doors, and ceiling fan. Middle bedroom (bunk beds) has sliding doors to a little raised deck in the back. Back bedroom (queen) has a side window facing south. Wifi, limited TV (glad enough not to turn it on). Sheets, towels, pillows and lots of blankets provided. Bring soap, dish detergent, laundry detergent if you're staying that long, spices, oil and vinegar, salt pepper and sugar--there may be some, but it depends on what others have left behind. Plenty of cleaning supplies should you need them. Chris was attentive (via HomeAway messages) and made sure we had the info we needed before arriving and leaving. Answered questions quickly. Would we come back? You bet!

Great and relaxing weekend stay

5 of 5
My girlfriend and I stayed here for Columbus Day weekend as a getaway from city life, and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. The house looked newly renovated, was neat, clean, and was decorated in a relaxing spend-a-day-at-the-beach theme. We visited during early fall, so it was a bit too chilly to enjoy the water, but we appreciated being able to stroll out onto the dock and beach, just feet from the cottage porch. The kitchen was fully stocked and the appliances were all new or like-new. The bed was big and comfortable and the bathroom was well maintained. It was very private, but Tom and Kathy were very attentive to our needs, even though they were stuck in their own travels by inclement weather (read: hurricane!). They even left us a gift bottle of pure maple syrup, which was an absolutely delicious and welcome surprise! Another big plus is that it's minutes (literally) from the Canadian border, so we were able to take a quick jaunt into Montreal for the afternoon. We also visited Plattsburgh, NY which was a short drive over the bridge. The Lake Champlain Islands region in general was just beautiful. There were a few minor drawbacks, however. The wifi was a little spotty, so we couldn't stream any media on our devices. Also, since we were there in October, the cottage got a little cold. It did not get cold enough to need the space heaters that were available, but an extra layer is probably advisable, depending on the season. Overall, Tom and Kathy's cottage was a perfect venue for a near perfect Fall weekend. It is cozy and comfortable, a great place for some much needed R&R.
