Why Suzanne Hinsdale chose Ferrisburgh

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.

Camp Gabriel was a great place to vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our month long stay at Camp Gabriel was great. Situated on Lake Champlain looking at the Adirondacks with access to kayaks, rowboats, and canoes was a dream come true. The cabin was adequate, supplied with all the things we needed. Some instructions on how to use the gas stove would have helped, as well as more bottled water. Other than that it was all good.

Relaxing, Cozy, Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at the Bayview Farm camp Gabriel. Set high above the lake, the cottage is rustic, but comfortable. The bedroom I used had a new wonderfully firm mattress, and the kitchen was sufficient for our needs. The absolute best part of the experience is the screen porch and deck where you can sit in the evenings with a glass of wine and watch the sun set over the Adirondacks.

There is not direct lake access from the cottage, but there is a grassy beach just a (very) short walk down the road with kayaks and a canoe available for use. The lake levels are low right now, making the cove pretty still and a little weedy. Because of this we opted to swim in nearby Kingsland Bay State Park, but the beach view is a perfect one.

The cottage does sit among several others, but we always felt like we had plenty of privacy. I slept incredibly well with cross breezes from the open windows. We felt so safe, we never locked up the cottage. There is web-enabled television and good wifi, but we never turned on the TV, opting instead to relax and read in the eves. If you do want games or books, you will need to bring them. The cottage does not have a supply.

The proprietor is very friendly and helpful. The cottage is situated minutes from Shelburne and Vergennes, and just a short drive to Burlington and Middlebury.

It was a great rental for the price. Peaceful, relaxing, and cozy.

Chilling at the Lakeside

  • 5 of 5

Stage 2 of our New England tour involved our stay at this charming and comfortable cabin, which had everything we needed - and a view to die for! Suzanne (owner) gave us a very warm welcome, and in no time at all we were out on the deck, clutching our glasses of the USA's finest and gazing at a beautiful Vermont sunset. Much to do in the area (go and look for the local covered bridges), and with several good "eateries" nearby, the best being the Starry Night Cafe - not so much a cafe, more a gourmet experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review. Meeting you both was not only really nice, but also one of those cultural moments that renting properties provides. To have folks visiting from England while the Brexit vote was taking place, and getting your points of view on it, was really special! Thanks for choosing Bayview, Suzanne

Great location, but not quite what we expected.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage location is great and we especially enjoyed sunsets from the screen porch. However, be advised that the beach and dock shown in the photos are a short walk from the cottage, not immediately adjacent. When we were there the grill wasn't working, but hopefully the owners have fixed it/replaced it now. The cottage itself is small and sparsely furnished/equipped, and the bathroom is very small, but everything was reasonably clean. Also, be advised that you can't drink the tap water. A jug of water was provided, but you may need to purchase more yourself. Despite these minor inconveniences, we really enjoyed our stay. It was a great area to paddle, bike, and walk - plus only a short drive to restaurants, etc....

Overall a great experience

  • 4 of 5

Property is beautiful. Cabins were closer together than we thought. Our cabin had great lake views with dock access and beach access further down the property. Overall the cabin was nice, well equipped. Suzanne was great, very informative. Most activities a easy drive - about 30 minutes. We visited Burlington, several wineries and several parks. Only real drawback, it can get a little loud on the weekends. Still a great place to stay.
