Betsy and Matt were wonderful hosts. The accommodations were perfect for what we were looking for. The house was clean and well sell set up for the two of us, although if you bring family members or another couple you will have plenty of room and privacy. There are 2 full baths, washer and dryer, dishwasher and the sheets, towels are included plus the kitchen set up for cooking (including a grill) you will need to bring very little.
The view is amazing from the deck and the dock. The water was very low when we stayed (all of NE is in a draught) so swimming would have been a challenge if we decided to do so. We spent some evenings hanging out on the deck with a wonderful sunset and a bottle of wine - perfect!
We arrived there was a heatwave in Vermont and the house does not have AC, so if you are going in the summer during a hot spell be aware of that. They do have fans for your use, which are very noisy. We did bring our own fan, so it was ok but not great for sleeping. Once the heat wave left, the nights were much more comfortable. The WIFI was spotty and a bit slow, Matt came to work on it, but it was still a bit slow. Also, there is no TV which did not matter to us, but some people may not care for that.
If you are looking for a really good bagel - make sure you go to Wally's Bagel Shop in South Hero. Dinner at the Blue Paddle is a must - also in South Hero. As for local places of interest visit Shelburne Museum, it's an all day event even two days - loads of things to see and explore. If you want some fun for shopping and dining go to Burlington Church Street, very cool place. UVM is another great place to walk around and take in. If you have young children the Shelburne Farm is the place to visit. There are state beaches and many free places to park and enjoy the lake for swimming and picnicking. As for adult beverages - well.... there are so many breweries plus a couple of vineyards too. Lets just say 4 days in the area were not enough!
We highly recommend this Homeaway place. We throughly enjoyed our stay and we look forward to coming back another time for another long weekend!
