My wife and I just love to travel and vacation all over the world. However, we were blessed with a son and needed to settle down. We figured if our travel was limited with the little one we should get a home that has the most vacation fun possible....so we did!This was originally our home and we developed it with TLC we hope that you will find it as warm and comfortable as we did. Oh...the home is very 'child friendly' as well.
Marty purchased this house in 2003
My wife and I Love life in Vermont. We are huge fans if hiking, boating, skiing and snowmobiling. This house placed us directly in the middle of all of this.
Additionally;Burlington,Middlebury and Vergennes provide a nice mix of culture and entertainment. Fort Ticonderoga is rich in history and just across the bridge to NY. We are centrally located just minutes from cultural & entertainment cities so you may enjoy various activities with your friends and family.
This property is unique in so many ways. We can accomodate either small or large parties in total comfort. The layout of the house is conducive to allowing several different groups to gather together while each maintaining their privacy.
We have hosted a few family reunions and our guests always compliment us on the fact that no one feels crowded. With two living rooms, office area, 1600 sq feet of outside decks and a dock different age groups tend to gather at various locations throughout the property. The kids have their own living room, adults their area, BBQing on the deck and others on the dock and in the water all at the same time.
Sunsets are incredible over the Adirondacks are breathtaking. Sunrises over the Green mountains are equally as inviting.
Lake access for boats, cross country skiers, ice fisherman, snowmobilers.
Just wanted to thank you the house was fantastic and a special place. We unanimously had a great time, the home is spacious, equiped with everything and couldn't be more comfortable thanks again. Thanks for the hospitality and sharing the Lake House.
It is a very nice location with plenty of room for everyone. We all enjoyed our stay. I would have given a 5 star except I think the house cleaner should have done a better job cleaning, being a house cleaner myself. Also there were tons of spiders and my niece flipped out when she found 2 big ones in her 4 month olds bassinet.
As for the owner Marty, he is very pleasant to talk with and prompt on getting back to you.
The house was comfortable, but not exactly luxurious. The upstairs bathroom has carpet on the floor, which does not seem sanitary. The decks were very dirty as was the outdoor furniture. The kitchen had enough basics to get by, but that's it.
The view was lovely. The owner was accommodating - the grill was broken when we arrived and with one phone call a new grill arrived that evening. It was very nice to have use of 2 kayaks as well as 2 bicycles.
Most importantly, when we booked the home we had 2 requirements which we were assured would be met with this rental. We needed a home that was safe for small children and we were bringing a fishing boat. The home is not convenient for those with small children. Not only are there many stairs down to the beach (which was all rocks and no sand at all), but there were no railings on one side of most of the steps. You could not let a small child navigate those steps on his or her own. Also, there is no place to either moor a boat or even park it if you have to take it out of the lake at the end of each day. We had to pay to keep the boat at the marina, which was costly and not convenient. Also, they expect a 9:00 a.m. checkout, which is not only unheard of but also completely unrealistic. I do not expect to pay that much money to be rushed out of the house by 9:00 a.m. That is not even enough time to have a cup of coffee before you have to pack up the car. The house was not so meticulously clean to justify that early departure time.
The location is good. It is very quiet. There is a convenience store as well an ice cream stand a couple miles down the road. If you need anything else or want to dine out it's about a 15 minute drive into Vergennes.
Overall, we had a nice time but we would not rent this house again.
The views are great of the mountains and sunsets, great fishing, kayaking and swimming ( need water shoes) and any other water activities or just relaxing on deck.
The picturesque lake setting combined with fantastic fishing and golf provided the most relaxing stress free vacation my family enjoyed in years.
Marty's property is exactly as advertised, if not even better! It's located in a very quiet small community and sits directly on the lake, with incredible sunset views over the Adirondacks. Our group of 10 people was perfectly comfortable for a long weekend and the house was stocked with everything we needed aside from groceries. We took advantage of the grill for a BBQ dinner one night, which was nice and big and made cooking easy. The location is great too- slightly secluded but still convenient for day trips to Burlington and everything else the area has to offer.
Perhaps my highlight though, was the stargazing we got to experience. I expected it would be good due to the lack of light pollution, but I was honestly blown away. Laying out on the dock, staring up at the sky, listening to the waves gently lap the shore- that's something I'll never forget. We hope to return someday!
This home is a gem! Many houses state they are located waterfront but this house is right on the water. At night you can hear the waves on the shore. The house is very well maintained and super comfortable. You need for nothing it is all there. Some of us wanted to hang in and enjoy the amazing view of the Adirondack Mountains while others wanted to explore the area.
Everyone was happy and had the ability to watch the Stanley Cup Finals on a big screen. My Senior Mother was comfortable because the master bedroom was on the main floor and the deck was right off the living room. Needless to say my Therapy Dog thought she died and went to heaven.
Marty was very easy to work with , a generous soul. My only regret was that the dock was not in so I couldn't stick my toes in the water. Next time!!!
Skydiving, hiking, biking, mini-golf, ice cream stands etc.
