The property was everything as described. The water views were great (even though it rained during our visit), it was convenient to UVM where we visited our daughter, and it was very quiet and private. The property was very clean thanks to the folks that stayed there before us. I say that because there is no cleaning service. The only negative for us was when we discovered you must clean the place before you leave including washing the sheets and towels. With a 10:00 AM check-out, it made it difficult to get that done before leaving unless you get up early which we didn't need or want to do. This requirement was disclosed but I missed it. Otherwise, the place was perfect for our visit.
Bev and Gordon were great hosts. They had everything ready for arrival including having lights turned on since we arrived after sunset. The house was as described and very cozy and comfortable. It was beautiful to wake up looking out at the water each day. The house would be ideal for a small family, 1 or 2 couples, or small group of friends. A quick 15 minute drive to downtown Burlington or 35 min on bicycles via dedicated paths. Parking was easy and convenient and we loved taking the kayaks out to explore some of the lake. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Wish we could have spent more time here.
You never know when you book what you will get but we won the lottery with this mini vacation. Our kids and grandkids live in Burlington so it was a short 10 min drive to their home. Being able to have the whole family at the cottage for dinner and lake time was perfect for us. The kids enjoyed the fishing and kayaks. Be sure to bring shovel & sand buckets for the little ones because the private beach area is GREAT! The water was totally clear you can see all the fish. The neighbors were friendly. The kitchen was well appointed, we did two large dinners there with no problems. We will definitely be back again!
AS advertised - great location, views - the whole package. If you want to kick back and relax this is the place - A short drive to downtown Burlington - good local spots to eat and Price Chopper grocery all within short drive. If you want to explore the area, excellent location to do so from. Owners - Beverly and Gordon right next door - they couldn't have been more helpful or courteous - If you are looking for a getaway and place to relax, this is it-if you want something to do, you have it here too - go out on the lake in the kayaks - plenty of areas to hike and explore. We would go back for another week!
Excellent choice for getting away from the stress and hustle.!
Enjoy your stay!

The cottage looks just like it does in the pictures. Good for couple or small group. Well appointed in nice residential neighborhood. Cozy and intimate with nice touches. Good for us since it's close to family but weather was not so great so we didn't get to enjoy lake. We anticipate going back.
Property is to be left in the same condition at the end of your visit (clean sheets/towels and dishes) as when you arrived. Please empty the fridge, wipe down the counters and clean the bathroom, and sweep and vacuum the floors. Leave the key on the fridge and leave the door unlocked. Trash and recycling are to the north of the garage. Thank you!!!
