Knew I was in New England

  • 5 of 5

Charming house with view of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this home. It was comfortable, clean and well equipped. Waking up to the view each morning was a gift. Charlotte is a quiet little town, but everything you need or want is close by.

Lucas checked in with us often by email to make sure we were doing well.

Highly recommend!

A lovely, spacious home true as advertised and reviewed

  • 4 of 5

The house is a sophisticated cottage-style as described by others: well laid out, eclectically but tastefully decorated with many modern conveniences such as a dish washer, cable TV and WiFi.

SOME ADVICE FOR COMFORT'S SAKE:

*If you don't like strong sulfur in your tap water (something I'd never experienced before and the cause of my deduction of 1 star) bring jugs of water for drinking and tooth brushing. My grown son didn't mind the sulfur at all.

*Bring soap for the showers and of course shampoo, etc. since these types of things aren't provided in the stalls. I was grateful that enough dishwasher tabs were provided for a week, the duration of our stay. We didn't do laundry, but if you bring detergent, bring HE-type.

*There is a large coffee brewer, but as the sole coffee drinker I'm glad I brought my french press for single cups; and bring your ground coffee. If you plan to cook a lot bring a saucepan or two. There are many frying pans, a spaghetti pot and a pan like a small spaghetti pot.

*As Mr. Adler warns the house is not for the feeble since all the bedrooms are upstairs. The wooden stairs don't have a railing at the upper part, and anyone with balance issues could have trouble.

*The house is in a lovely village but not the kind with side walks. Traffic in the area was surprisingly heavy and fast moving. While it's only one lane in each direction, there is no shoulder for safest walking or cycling.

FOOD TREATS AND SUPPLY SOURCES NEARBY:

*The Old Brick Store, a few steps from the house has wonderful fresh-made scones and muffins and basic pantry supplies plus dairy products. They also prepare breakfasts and lunches in a limited but probably tasty way.

*Shelburne Supermarket in Shelburne Shopping Park where Shelburne Road and Falls Road meet has not only basic supplies but lots of gourmet treats.

*Bijou chocolates in Shelburne is an artisanal, fancy chocolate shop --everything is so pretty and scrumptious. Address is 6221 Shelburne Road. Man can not live by Lake Champlain chocolates alone!

*Vermont is famous for its Maple Creemees (soft serve ice cream made with maple syrup). Burlington Bay Market, 125 Battery Street Street in Burlington (20 minutes from the house) has an excellent example.

*Hard Cider fans go to Citizen Cider in Burlington ( 10 ciders to try). A flight of 5 costs $7.00. The tasting room (bar) has a few food items and is found at 316 Pine Street.

Owner's Response: Andrea, thank you for taking the time to review my property. Detailed reviews like yours help improve the rental experience. Allow me to respond to your points. Regrettably, sulphur in the water is typical for Charlotte. I’m sorry your experience was tainted by it. The house has an elaborate water filtration system that eliminates the sulphur. When it doesn’t, the system needs maintenance, which has now been completed. Traffic by the house has increased in the last two summers due to road construction on Rte 7. Apparently, traffic should be back to its normal levels when construction ends early next year. At one time, there was a railing on the upper half of stairs. However, some renters complained about how it narrowed the stairway considerably. I will be looking into alternatives that will suit the wide range of renter expectations. I used to supply paper products, laundry detergent, shampoo, and soap. For many reasons, this proved untenable. However, in light of your review, I will reconsider supplying such sundry items. Finally, in your review, you write that I warned “the house was not for the feeble.” I believe this is a misunderstanding. I never said that in conversation, and it is not in the description of the house. To clarify: I alert potential renters that all the bedrooms are upstairs indicating that people with mobility issues will find the house challenging. Thank you again for your thoughtful, detailed review. It is regrettable that these issues tarnished your visit. To compensate for your inconvenience, allow me to offer you a discount on a future visit. Sincerely, Lucas Adler

Such a delightful stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home this summer. The eclectic style and interior architecture of this unique 1920's cottage has tastefully been coupled with modern touches to create a warm and comfortable setting that invites one in to enjoy your stay. You can certainly tell that Lucas takes pride in his home and wants you to enjoy your time spent in the house.

You certainly can't miss the gorgeous view of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains from both floors. The sunsets we saw on a few occasions were spectacular!!!! The open kitchen/dining/sitting area was perfect for entertaining; especially when we had guests and family over for the evening. The bedrooms were nicely decorated; loved the spacious master with it's comfy chairs to see the beautiful views, the attached bath and closet space was appreciated since our stay was for a longer time period. Nice having the extra bedrooms and their own bath when we had visiting family members staying overnight. Another favorite was the outside bistro table and chairs where we could bring our coffee and morning paper out or to enjoy our afternoon wine and cheese etc. We did make use of the many entertainment features (WIFI, multiple tv channels to view along with his varied and interesting collection of books, videos and CD's to choose from. Since we had many of our meals in house, the kitchen was ideally set up to easily accommodate this. We also loved having the Brick Store close by along with a lovely library and deli down the road. It's location is perfect for touring around the state and it's so nice that Lucas has many brochures of places to visit and locate restaurants etc. in the area. All in all, this stay was the best we've ever had when we have come back to our home state for a summer stay.... can't beat the beauty of Vermont!!

Great house, fantastic location; rural but 20 min to everything

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay.

It's a perfect location. 22 minutes to Burlington downtown and 20 minutes to the beach that is ideal for toddlers (Oakledge).

But really lovely to be in a more rural area, surrounded by excellent farms, good ice cream and local places.

Nice house. Big common areas and great kitchen.

Huge master bedroom, lots of windows, space for armchair, desk and table.

The other 2 bedrooms are fine, but don't have a window that opens, only with AC.

The owner is great. Very responsive.

House is in great condition.

Working grill that's very good quality. Good laundry machines.

Overall would come back again to this same house without a question.
