Inviting, comfortable, well maintained

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and comfortable.

Really enjoyed sitting on the water’s edge and Kayaking!

Property was easy to find, even in the dark, thanks to the sign on the road’s edge!!

Would love to return the next time I am visiting up North!!!

I would def recommend it and hope to come back soon!

  • 5 of 5

Place was super clean; very easy to enter; communication with hosts was great! I have absolutely nothing to complain about, gorgeous lake and we had a great time. You can easily park your boat there, they have a private area at the lake/beach. The Keurig/coffee machine wasn't working, but we already let the hosts know. Thank you for having us!

Great family fun

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our mini vacation at Kamp James. House had everything we needed. House was very clean. The porch was wonderful to sit on and watch the sunrise. My girl's 6 and 8 loved the kayaks and paddle boats. We used them at least 3x a day. Having life vest's and water shoes was a perk for sure. If you get a chance visit the Ausable Chasm. It was a great experience for us.

Great Place to relax!

  • 4 of 5

Great place to relax and enjoy the lake. The owners accommodated our group and there are enough amenities provided at the lake house. Also, near by state park, beach, boat launch, etc. Not enough time, though. Next time we would like to spend an entire week. James Camp was a blast.

Great overall experience

  • 5 of 5

Camp is newly renovated with many upgrades that helps with a family and two children. Beach was limited due to high lake levels but you can't hold that against the owners- LOL. Place was overall exactly what was promised. Thanks for a great vacation rental back on Lake Champlain!!

Beautiful setting for 3 day summer vacation.

  • 4 of 5

Very good accommodations. Owners very helpful with eqipment and children. Great outdoor seating at cottage. Stairs down to lake were very unsafe and inaccessible to older people with unsure footing. Missed being able to sit on beautiful pier to enjoy lake.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the newly renovated porch for enjoying the lake views... and yes, a boulder tipped our lake stairs a bit this spring; finally fixed but it took heavy equipment and some scheduling to get it done!
