Overview

Lake Champlain Valley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 1 full bath, sleeps 6

This lake view cottage has all of the modern conveniences of home with beautiful Lake Champlain views. The kitchen has been recently renovated with new wood floors. Our cottage is located 25 minutes from Burlington on Mills Point in Colchester, Vermont. It is conveniently situated near the Burlington bike path and the Colchester causeway. Lake access is across the road where the water is clear and shallow enough for young children. There is a mooring available for your boat and a rock beach for sunning. The community of Mills Point is friendly and welcoming.

The Fall foliage is spectacular both on the Point and in the area. There are amazing scenic drives into the mountains around Stowe and beyond. There is lovely mountain hiking nearby and natural areas within walking distance. In the summer you can pick strawberries and blueberries and in the Fall apple picking is available.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Helaine

I lived in Burlington for 27 years before moving to Boulder, Colorado. I raised 3 children in Vermont and still consider it my home.

Why Helaine chose Lake Champlain Valley

Our property is unique in that our community of neighbors is special. Many of the folks on Mills Point live here year round. They are friendly, kind and generous and I consider myself lucky to be able to come home to such a place.

What makes this cottage unique

Mills Point is close enough to Burlington to feel cosmopolitan and far enough away to feel like a getaway. I love my cozy home on the lake and look forward to spending more time here in the future. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as I do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful few days together, biking, walking, talking, playing games, eating, enjoying the quiet and beautiful place - hope to come back again.

Thank you!

Excellent Cottage with Lake Views and Access

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and exceptionally well-kept property. Location perfect for biking on the causeway and islands, lake activities and biking or driving into town. Lovely calm, clear water and views from deck. Excellent kitchen set up and very comfortable for family of 4 or 5. Faces East for spectacular sunrise over water for early risers.

Highly recommended. Definitely bring watershoes for lake.

Enjoy

So glad we stayed here!

  • 5 of 5

Another place would not have been more perfect for our family of 3. The house has everything you would ever need, and the location can't be beat if you want to be near the water, bike trails and the new north end of Burlington. Most of all, we SO appreciated the private location, quiet atmosphere, friendly neighbors, and obvious respect folks here have for their gorgeous green mountain location.

We made great use of the deck for a grilled dinner with a couple of friends, for morning coffee and newspaper, and for relaxing at sunset with a glass of great local wine.

The best doughnuts are a short drive away at Bayside Bakery, and Zachary's pizza is a hit when you'd rather not cook.

Thank you Helaine for making our first home away from home vacation enjoyable, easy, and stress free! We hope to return!

great value

What a beautiful place to visit. My family and I had a wonderful experience. The views and area were perfect for some much needed time away. This house in particular was a great deal for the area and we'll definitely be back!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

This cottage had everything we needed for our college/girls weekend - we had friends over for lunch on the deck, took long walks, swam in the lake and used the grill one night for dinner. Cottage is cute and cozy with lovely rooms.

Owner was very helpful making sure we were comfortable. It had all of the bells and whistles for an easy stay. It was spotless and the layout perfect for a family.

We are definitely coming back to this spot !!

Comfortable, relaxing, functional!

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented this cottage while traveling to Burlington for a conference at UVM. The place was perfect! It is a beautifully remodeled property with a lovely kitchen, a great deck for enjoying wine and grilling out in the evenings, close to the bike path for a morning jog, and has a comfy couch for late-night conversations or strategy sessions. The jaunt into town isn't bad, but you do need a car. I brought my baby and mom along on the trip and they were able to enjoy the nearby park each day. Thanks for letting us enjoy your Mills Point home!

fantastic place for our girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay in Vermont. Only 15 min to Burlington. The lake is beautiful, clear and refreshing. The house had a lake house feel so we did not have to worry about being overly neat. The owners seem to take great care to make your stay accommodating. We had everything we needed at the house; in fact we brought too much stuff. I could not say enough about the neighbors and Mills Point community- everyone was so friendly and didn't seem to mind our late night chatting on the deck.

Just one recommendation would be to bring water shoes. The first 10 feet into the water is very rocky and could be hard to manage without shoes.

The property manager , Raquel, was very easy to work with and very helpful.

We had a wonderful girls weekend and would come back again.
