About Michele Gammal

This is our family cabin that we have owned for 11 years. We live 25 minutes away in Essex Junction. Our children have grown up here and just love it.

*** If you don't see the dates you want, inquire anyway, we have a new additional property for rent in the same area. *** Property # 3954592

Michele Gammal purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Michele Gammal chose Lake Champlain Islands

Everyone that stays here loves it, and you will too. It is quiet and relaxing and a lot of fun. Our kids were raised on the lake and have best memories. Come and make some of your own. It is also very clean.

We would love to chat with you about a reservation.

What makes this cabin unique

The sandy beach is very safe and you can slowly walk into the lake. Great for people of all ages. Fishing is fabulous. You can use our dock to keep your boat. There is an additional fee of $100.00 to dock the boat.

Nice Waterfront Experience

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay on South Hero Island, plenty of dock space for bringing boats and a nice sand beach leading into the water from the property. Clean and well maintained property with plenty of room for activities (Horseshoes, Volleyball, Frisbee, etc) outside. Inside the cottage is well stocked with all the necessities such as pots, pans, dishes and glasses. WiFi and cable TV are a bonus although we spent the majority of our time out enjoying Lake Champlain and the warm weather spell during our stay. Be sure to stop by Sebs ice cream right up the street for a tasty treat and pickup some freshly made donuts for the entire family - you will not be disappointed. Owner is very responsive if anything is needed and quick to respond, if you are looking for peace and quiet this is nice relaxing place to stay.

Clean, well-maintained, relaxing and delightful

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and functional. The owners are super friendly and happy to help. This is a great home base location to explore the nearby areas of Vermont. We went out during the day and came back each afternoon to enjoy the lake. My kids loved jumping off the dock into the water and taking the boats out into the lake to fish. The beach was not quite as big as it shows in the picture; we were fortunate to have nice weather so that the beach actually got larger while we were there. I'd imagine that when it rains, the beach likely disappears.

The listing says that it's air conditioned, but there is only a window unit in the kitchen; there is a big floor fan and a window fan in one of the bedrooms. It was quite hot while we were there and the house would really heat up during the day - more than what the air conditioner was capable of handling. It would cool down at night enough that it didn't really affect our comfort while sleeping. The shower on the enclosed porch is not as spectacular as it sounds. The hot water heater is a heat-per-use unit that doesn't keep a consistent temperature. We found that if you keep the kitchen faucet running hot water for the duration of the shower, it helps the water heater to stay on and therefore provide a more consistent temperature for the shower. The days of showers before we figured that out were pretty rough though. My kids dreaded having to get in there.

Keep in mind that it is small and fairly old. There is no dishwasher. The linoleum is worn in spots and the whole place has an old beach house rental feel. If the weather would have been bad and we would have had to spend more time inside, I doubt that we'd have had as nice a time.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! The location is perfect. Secluded and private...but a short drive or walk to 'town'.

My wife and I brought our two year old daughter and we had a great time. My daughter loved the "cave" beds (bunk beds) and especially loved the property. The beach was perfect for her to play on and the yard was a great size to run around on.

Inside was super clean and organized. While it's not a huge place, we didn't go there planning to spend our time inside, so that was not a big deal. My wife and I stayed out on the new deck with the queen sized futon, which was awesome. Very nice to wake up to those views every morning.

Lastly, Michelle was great. She checked on us the day we arrived and left, but also the morning after a massive wind storm blew in. She and her family cleaned up the beach (blown in lake weeds) and made sure we were ok.

Overall, this place was perfect. If we make it up to VT again, we will definitely stay here.

Great Place to Make Memories

  • 4 of 5

My kids keep asking to go back to this cabin. The cabin itself fits the quaint description, but it has that camping feel that you want on a vacation with the family on the lake. The property is well-stocked and really clean, while the gracious owners go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The fishing is very good, we caught several large bass and the large deck provided a relatively safe place for the kids to play and fish as well. The outdoor/lake "toys" are plentiful and available for use! The sunsets were spectacular and the nights by the fire were some of the more memorable moments of our trip.

This is a great place to get some real vacation, it's away from everything and yet "close enough" at the same time. The Blue Paddle was a fantastic culinary experience just around the corner and in the other direction a wonderful antique shop/barn. This cabin is highly recommended!

Our cabin is a single story home located just three stairs from ground level. Good fit for children given single step down to sandy beach. The lake has a gradual drop from 0 feet at beach to 3 feet in swimming area off the dock. We DO NOT take pets, NO exceptions made. We do have dock space for your boat and are on town water for drinking and showering. We recently put new windows on the front porch. We have also built a 2 story garage building that is a few feet away from the rental cabin. This garage building is not included in the advertised rental as we use that. The bottom level is garage and the top level is a loft. It is separate and very private.
