It Has 2 Bedrooms (one With A Double Bed, And One With Two Singles, A Living/dining Room, A Screened Porch, A Remodeled Bathroom And A Complete Kitchen.

Why Suzanne Hinsdale chose Lake Champlain Valley

Simply put, Bayview Farm is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. The Bay itself is quiet and relatively shallow, making it a bit warmer than other parts of the lake, and making for remarkable fishing, boating, and all forms of water sports.

What makes this cabin unique

Bayview Farm Is A Unique Property. It Was Originally One Of The Governors Lots In The Hampshire Grants (before Vermont Was Vermont) And Has Remained The Same Farm Ever Since (with One Very Minor Boundary Adjustment To Repair Crooked Lines). It Has Only Been Owned By Two Families Ever, And It Has Been Serving Guests Since 1890, When The Roof Was Raised In The Main House 'to Take In Borders'. The First Cabin Was Also Built Around That Time.

What This Translates To Now Is That The Place Has A Timeless Quality, A Place To Vacation Much Like People Have Been Doing For 100 Years. It Also Has A Stunning Natural Beauty That Caused It To Be Chosen So Long Ago As The Spot That The Governor Wanted To Keep For Himself. As Soon As You Arrive Here, You Are Immediately Struck With The Reasons Travelers And Locals Have Been Staying At Bayview Farm For Over A Century.

Great Location on Lake Champlain

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful vacation spot just 15 minutes south of Burlington but very secluded and quiet. The cabin was well equipped and comfortable. We didn't lack for amenities.

We used the wood stove several evenings due to the chilly weather in mid October and enjoyed the leaf peeping opportunities between the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks.

beautiful lakefront

  • 5 of 5

A very basic, old-fashioned lake cottage, and it could not be more charming. Suzanne is very helpful, and cottage is well equipped. View of lake is gorgeous, with nice access. A bonus is the water craft availability. We had a nice kayak trip around the area. Thank you, Suzanne! We will return.

Wonderfully relaxing and blissful

  • 5 of 5

Bigelow cabin will lower your blood pressure within minutes. It's gloriously tranquil, beautiful, and low-key, and there are many great dining options in the area...and that's on top of the two grills at hand. Outdoor activities abound, and the lake view and lapping waves are an incredible way to unplug.

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Suzanne was so helpful for all of our questions in the area. It is such a great site and it was really nice to literally walk away from technology (though Internet is there if you need it, but you won't it). We wouldn't hesitate to go back again!

Charming and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed seven nights in this 1890s rustic cabin with modern amenities and enjoyed every minute of it. The screened porch is worth the price of admission. Don't expect the Hilton here. You're in for the charm and adventure of it. Take yourself back to a simpler time and relax! The hostess promptly fulfilled requests for extra towels and paper products, plus provided valuable information about local sites and restaurants. Close to grocer (Shaw's) in Vergennes. Window AC unit and fans helped cool the cabin down in the hot afternoons, but wasn't needed come evening. Bed was super comfy! We would definitely come back to this place in the future!
