About Shalini Paul

My name is Shalini Paul and my family has owned this property since 1991. We decided to move to New Jersey, but retained the property as a yearly rental all these years. Everyone suggested that it is a beautiful spot for a vacation. My husband and I are both working in the financial industry in NJ, and like to come up on weekends to enjoy the property.

Shalini Paul purchased this house in 1991

Why Shalini Paul chose Vermont

We chose this location because of the property being situated on the lake, and its beautiful surroundings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Excellent house"

Stayed at this house for a week with the family and could have quite happily stayed for longer.The house is as described and is well equipped.The facilities outside are excellent too with two boats and a lovely dock to sit and watch sunrise/sunsets from aswell as the picnic table and swing bench.

This house is within easy reach of many attractions in Vermont and New York State.

Would definately stay again

This was a great stay. Need a ladder on the dock to support swimming.

  • 4 of 5

A very all inclusive lake home. I would recommend this to anyone. Perfect getaway. The swimming could be improved with a little bit of excavation around the dock. Overall an amazing time.

Beautiful lake front home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here July 2017 with 8 people. There was plenty of room for all of us. House is completely stocked with everything you need. Plenty of blankets and towels, and a new washer/dryer set if you wish to do laundry. Remember that this is a lake house, so it is rustic. The kids loved fishing off of the dock everyday and the sunsets are amazing. There are 2 boats and a kayak to use but the larger boat had a hole in it. All in all, this was a great house for us and the location was perfect. The neighbor was super friendly and the owners are a pleasure to do business with. We will definitely be back!!!!

Summer Lake House

  • 4 of 5

We had 11 family members and this house provided all the space we needed. Beds were comfortable, linens were clean and we had plenty of towels although the home comes with a beautiful new washer/dryer for any laundry needs. Our only disappointment was the paddle boat was not working, and the outside needs some upkeep. The kids had a blast fishing, and my grandaughter loved feeding all the fish under the dock! We will be staying here again in the future. The location is perfect for us.

Lots of space for a weekend ski trip

  • 4 of 5

Keeping in mind that this is a lake cabin (and not a luxury hotel), this location has plenty of space for our group, and was a very comfortable place to stay for a weekend of skiing. The beds are comfortable, and the rooms quite large, but the cots are basic camping cots, and most likely not the most comfortable for adults.

There was plenty of space in the kitchen for cooking, and plenty of seating space at the kitchen island and a large dining room table. Firewood was provided for the wood stove in the living room, which was also very nice to have after a day skiing. We did not spend much time outside, but there was a large yard. There is also DirectTV and a stereo for entertainment.

Unfortunately, on our second day, we found out that the heating oil supply was depleted, and the heat was not working. Luckily, Nina the property manager was very accessible and responsive (even at 10pm), and was able to get the issue resolved within an hour or two of calling. While points are lost for what I consider an avoidable issue, the issue was redeemed by the excellent customer service provided by the property manager.

A very good house

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 10 and went to see the fall foliage at Vermont for a weekend. Enjoyed our stay a lot at this place. The house had adequate space for all of us to sleep comfortably. The kitchen, dining and living room downstairs are big and spacious. Absolutely loved the porch with views to the lake. The fire pit by the lake is another nice thing about the house and we took full advantage of it during the evening time. Everything (Burlington, Stowe, Ben&Jerry’s etc.) are all close by and within 30-40 mins. The house needs some updates inside that are mostly cosmetic and if that is done this it will become a perfect paradise. That is the only reason I am giving 4 stars to this property and leaving that 1 star for the owner as a room for improvement. I Apart from that everything was fine with the house. In all we loved our stay and will be back if we get a chance!!
