Malletts Bay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom camp (cottage) with view of sheltered bay on Lake Champlain.

Relive those lazy days of yesteryear by the lake! This cozy 3-bedroom 1-bath seasonal camp on Malletts Bay holds all the charm and character of days gone by while including the comforts of home. Relax and watch the boats go by from the screened-in porch or take a dip in the lake off the private raft. The raft is also perfect for fishing or sunning. Blue Camp can sleep up to 8 (counting the sofa sleeper), although some guests enjoy sleeping on the screened porch for more of an outdoor experience. Limited dock space and mooring is also available for guests that want to bring their boat along. Fully equipped kitchen, dining area and living room with wood-stove for those cool nights. Quiet location is on a dead end dirt road within walking distance from the general store. For lakeside or Church Street dining, Burlington is accessible by bike (30-45 min on the community bike path), boat, or automobile (15 min). For the more adventurous, several zip lines are within 90 minutes and various restaurants are available on the NY side of Lake Champlain which can be crossed with your boat or by ferry. Bikes (4), kayaks (2), paddle board and small row boat are available for use. Other attractions include hiking trails, mountain climbing, museums, wineries, boat tours, drive-in movie theatre and more.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Blue Camp even with some drizzle and clouds for a couple of the days. The cabin is a perfect rustic lakeside retreat. John makes sure everything is taken care of and is readily available for any needs or information. Having the bikes, kayaks, and paddle board make it even better and we took advantage of all. The whole area is absolutely beautiful and such a quick trip to Burlington. My only regret is that we could not stay longer-Blue Camp is definitely a do again!!

Nice location with a nice view. Big screened in porch with large yard leading to lakefront.

  • 4 of 5

Use of kayaks and bicycles, gas grill, laundry in basement and lawn furniture a nice extra.

Nice dock for boat. Limited Beach front and not suitable for swimming due to heavy weeds.

The Blue Camp

  • 5 of 5

Lovely view and great spot to launch a canoe for fishing. Not good for swimming, though - weeds and mucky bottom. Loved that porch, and we ate all our meals outside. The kitchen was amazingly well equipped. We're "cookers", and everything we could possibly need was there. Nice quiet spot. Eight people were very comfortable.

Has everything you need for a fun and relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation at the blue camp. The location was close to Burlington but quiet and peaceful with wonderful views from the screen porch where we spent most of our time. The owner was helpful and friendly. Near parks and the rail trail and convienent to grocery stores,etc. We are already thinking about returning next year. A big thank you to our host for helping to create some great family memories.

Classic Vermont Camp with great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Blue Camp is a great place to stay, we took advantage of the bikes, kayaks, ping pong table, wood stove for chilly nights, and well equipped kitchen including gas grill for dining in. The camp is located about a 15-minute drive from downtown Burlington which was great. Also close by are lots of great trails to hike and some smaller towns to visit such as Waterbury. We had some chilly/rainy weather but found that there was plenty to do (ping pong, puzzles, etc.) We also took a bike ride into Burlington for brunch one day, the bike path is along Lake Champlain, very scenic and a fun way to get into town. The camp is authentic and true to itself, no frills but so much to offer - the best screened in porch you could imagine with a beautiful view. Make sure you visit the local bar around the corner - Rozzi's Lakeshore Tavern, this place is great and you'll meet the neighbors!

We really enjoyed our stay at Blue Camp. The sunrises were spectacular! We also loved the huge screened porch facing the lake, and John could not have been more accommodating.

Sunset Drive-In Theatre is 2 miles away. Lake Champlain is the largest freshwater lake in the United States outside of the Great Lakes and has many picturesque islands and coves to explore. The Green Mountains of Vermont and the Adirondack Mountains of New York offer many hiking trails and scenic drives. With all of its natural beauty, low population density (second least populated state after Wyoming), and opportunities to experience the outdoors, Vermont is a popular destination spot for tourists (tourism is Vermont's largest industry).
