Wonderful vacation rental for extended families!

  • 5 of 5

A warm, welcoming and well-equipped home that comfortably housed 3 couples and a baby. The views are lovely, the deck is a wonderful place to socialize (at length) on, and the owners - who live on the street - are responsive and friendly! We hope to have an opportunity to return.

Perfect summer getaway on Lake Champlain

  • 4 of 5

What a great value for the rental dollar. Not being overly familiar with the area we were a little concerned that it seemed so far away from everything - but it really isn't. The access to Lake Champlain was excellent and the owners have another home a few houses away...had the chance to meet them; real wonderful folks. House was plenty spacious and offered everything we needed. It was a very humid week with a lot of rain, so it got to be pretty warm inside the house - thank goodness it cooled off at night. Bedrooms were large and the mudroom was great for keeping wet shoes out of the house. Home is in a really close knit lake community and the neighbors were all super friendly. Just a real enjoyable place to vacation. The beds are much better than most rental homes we've ever stayed at. There is a good mix of beds, so you may want to try them out and rotate accordingly. The master bedroom's bed was softer, the other 2nd floor bedroom bed was extra firm. The singles downstairs were good for the kids. The 2 bathrooms was GREAT with a family of 6. Owners allowed us to use rowboat and canoes, which was a lot of fun for the kids. Internet access was a nice bonus for the really rainy days. We'd rent this home again...just enjoyed the area.

winter vacation surprise!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this lake home for a surprise for my wife's birthday. some of our close friends came to! It was great, plenty of room we enjoyed our weekend here celebrating my wife's 40th. The masterbedroom was terrific! the whole home was larger than we thought, we enjoyed the area, views, and snow! Would like to visit in the summer or Fall. All in all is was a great winter getaway in a very nice home. We would come back again for another winter getaway and hopefully a week long vacation in the future. Brent
