Wonderful sunsets!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was already there. We brought our food and beach towels and Jan and Bud made sure we were taken care of. Our family came to visit and were jealous of the great spot we had found. There was plenty of beds for our family who chose to spend the night. And even our dog felt at home. We will definitely see the McCurley's again next year.

Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a fabulous time this past weekend and really enjoyed meeting Bud & Jan! They are very sweet and we are so thankful that they shared their lovely home with us for a few days. All of the little touches around the house made us feel right at home. It was wonderful getting to fall asleep to the sound of the waves from Lake Champlain at night and relaxing on the dock during the day. It is truly a perfect setting and the sunsets were to die for.

We can't wait to book our vacation next year!! I would recommend this home to anyone.

A Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I chose this cottage based on its location right on Lake Champlain. It was a quiet weekend as most of the families were gone after Labor Day and it was exactly what we were looking for. The owners are very warm people and they even offered us a boat ride while we were there! The cottage is tucked away from the main road on its own private road with only a few houses. There are plenty of games for kids, a wonderful dock with chairs, a chiminea to roast marshmallows at night, and a canoe with paddles. We also got some great fresh vegetables from the "on your honor" produce stand just a few blocks away. This was a great little retreat from our daily lives in NYC. Thank you Bud and Jan!

Terrific experience

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great week at this property. It was exactly what we wanted - a place to provide downtime when desired; as well as offering an abundance of options for the kids. The hospitality shown by Bud and Jan went above and beyond what should be expected. We would highly recommend this property to others and will likely make it a return destination for ourselves.

We just spent the most glorious three weeks in this house! Bud & Jan have thought of every 'little thing' you could possibly want or need. From all the the most beautiful sunsets you could possibly imagine! We had our two year old grandsons with us for two of the weeks...and they loved every minute of being at the 'Lake House'...from fishing off the dock, to going in Grandpa's boat...never a dull moment! Thank you Bud and Jan...we'll see you next summer...for another three weeks!!! It's summer's like this...that make the most beautiful memories! Smile....
