About Susan Jennings

I have always lived near Lake Champlain and learned to swim in the cold mornings of the lake. I now have a place on the lake and I want to share it with others so they can make great memories as well.

Susan Jennings purchased this house in 2006

Why Susan Jennings chose Lake Champlain Islands

This is paradise, sitting on the deck and watching the sail boats go by and seeing blue herons on the beach. Or how about watching all the stars in the sky or fire works on the New York side several night during July 4th week. Also there is large yard for out side games. This place is a great place to call home away from home.

Great location - accommodations had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week in Alburgh. It was peaceful and a pleasure to sit on the deck looking out over the lake any time of the day but the sunsets were as beautiful as advertised.

The house was clean, spacious and well stocked with all the comforts of home. The only downside was that we had to leave after a week.

Homey and comfy - more space inside than it looks and we loved the sun porch.

Good access to the water, large yard for playing games, and privacy from the neighbors.

Warm and comfortable family home with the natural shoreline and the most spectacular sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

My family immediately felt at home. The house has old world charm with modern conveniences and a touch of quirkiness. We loved it! Susan is an easy person to talk to and pleasure to do business with. Our only regret is that we didn't book for two weeks. We didn't want to leave.

Great vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

Aug 2016 2-week vacation at this very comfortable house was enjoyed by all. Great location on the water which was warm and a stone's throw from the house. Due to shallow water in the lake this summer, you had to walk out a bit to really swim - but that was very manageable. Need water shoes for shore and lake bottom. Great kayaking in any direction from the house/shore. Great bicycling in the area. House was larger and more spacious than indicated by the pictures (especially by the view from google maps / earth). Fun collections of antiques in the house. Nice big yard for lawn games. Great sun porch and deck for viewing magnificent sunsets over NY and gazing at the lake. Pretty quiet. Kitchen is very large - lots of counter space; little shy on plates & bowls but that never became a problem with the dishwasher available to you. Towels a-plenty. With 5 adults at any one time, we were very comfortable inside and out! Easy walk to the village store and easy drive to Rouse's Point (NY) or Swanton (VT) for major grocery shopping. Easy to get to points in VT for siteseeing and Canada is just up the road! Montreal is an hour north. Owner Sue is gracious and easy to work with.

Very comfortable home for 2 week lake vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Aug 2016 2-week vacation at this house - very comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay here. House is more spacious (especially master bedroom, kitchen, dining & living room) than pictures (especially Google maps earth view) would indicate. Modern, large kitchen - great cookware; little shy on ceramic plates, bowls, but with dishwasher, no problem!! Fantastic views of lake. Towels aplenty and two full baths - very comfortable w/ 5 adults (most we had at any one time ). Easy access to water - very shallow so you have to walk way out to actually swim (but this was a very dry summer and levels are down) but it's quite manageable (bring water shoes for beach and lake bottom). Nice fire-pit on beach. Great kayaking and lots of fine bicycling in the area; we brought our own but rentals are not hard to find. Easy walk to village store; easy drive to full grocery store either in NY or Swanton VT. 1 hr to Montreal. Nice sun porch and deck on the lakeside of the house for watching the water - beautiful sunsets over NY. Sue very gracious and easy to work with. Highly recommend!!

Everything in the house was just like the description. The waterfront is right in front of the house, so that was great. Susan (the homeowner) was very helpful and kind. This property is great for someone who loves fishing. All stores needed for home needs and groceries are close by. The location is a nice and quiet place.
