About Cindy Giovacchino

This house was a church built in the 1890's. The house was moved to its current location (from accross town). We have added a 1,000 sq feet with new kitchen, bedrooms, living room, loft and bathroom.

Cindy Giovacchino purchased this house in 2013

Why Cindy Giovacchino chose Lake Champlain Valley

My Mom's family has lived here for almost 200 years. I spent summers here and wanted my children to experience the beauty and great people of Willsboro.

What makes this house unique

The outdoor shower and fireplace are my favorite. After a day of swimming, fishing or boating I end up in the Adirondack chair in front of the fire, nothing better!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have now rented this house for the last 4 years. All the comforts of home with a location that is mesmerizing. Great swimming, fishing and excellent local restaurants.

Peace and serenity and a vacation I look forward to every year for many years to come.

Great house!

I stayed over New Year's Eve with a group of 8 friends. We had plenty of space and enjoyed the gourmet kitchen. We had everything we needed. Would definitely stay again!

Spectacular! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It is our 2nd time back. The view is breathtaking, sunsets are amazing! The home is spacious and very clean, love the way home is decorated. (It appears that they have newly painted the interior) All of the amenities of home! The owners were a pleasure to deal with and we had no problem getting our deposit back. We plan to go back again next year! My kids loved every minute of their stay. The owners describe it as "Gods country" understatement!

What a place!

  • 5 of 5

The amenities and being able to work on my laptop from the porch overlooking the Bay was like taking a tranquilizer. I will rent this property again.

Family time

  • 5 of 5

This place is like Mayberry from the Any Griffith Show with the bonus of the most beautiful mountain lake I have ever seen. The house is wonderful and decorated like it was your own. All the amenities plus.

My kids love this place, third year renting. Paul is the best!!!

Perfect Perfect Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The town is a story book. Local eateries, general store, ice cream and of course a magnificent lake that is truly a gem. Our rental began with an afternoon barbeque and a nap on the daybed on the front porch. Beautiful breeze put me right to sleep. The evening dinner at the Willsboro Marine with escargot and a NY Strip was amazing.

May grand kids loved the indoor swing and spent hours entertaining themselves. Local golf and bike rides.

The perfect vacation for fun or relaxation.

Lovely Place but Owner not honourable

  • 1 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the rental size and location were great, though the mattress in the loft was a brick and the cottage needs a good overall clean. (Also the steps up to the loft are steep and narrow. Not advisable for children.) We shared with another family and everyone had space to play, sleep and come together.

We had a big disapointment afterward, as the owner did not refund our deposit. He was originally reasonable in communications and would provide rationale for the delay, but when it went on for months with multiple contact from both myself and my friend he stopped communicating. There was no damage or reason to not refund the deposit he has just not done it.

If he were to send our money back, I would recommend this place. Without that, renter beware.

Owner's Response: Deposit was mailed to Ms McCormick in Canada twice and returned to me. Deposit was returned after they gave me a new address. This was not our fault and we are extremely displeased with this report. We have never ever had a negative review. 6 weeks of our calendar are rentals to previous renters.
