About Glenn

We are a family of Vermonters (born and raised) and love everything that Lake Champlain has to offer. Our family is very active and truly enjoys Niquette Bay year round with the change of seasons. From boating, fishing, paddleboarding, kayaking & swimming in the Summer, Spring and Fall months to snowshoeing, ice skating, cross country skiing and taking long walks on the frozen bay during the winter. We take full advantage of the views and the access the lake provides to us year round.

Glenn purchased this house in 2012

Why Glenn chose Colchester

Growing up on the lake in Vermont installed a love and passion for the water. We bought this house in Niquette Bay because it was an ideal location to enjoy everything the lake has to offer while only being 1 mile from Interstate I89. We truly found an ideal spot for a family to relax, stay active and overall have fun together while creating memories for a lifetime!

What makes this house unique

This house has a 100 feet of direct lake front property. The beach is sandy, safe and ideal for families and it is one of our favorite parts of the property. We spend a lot of time taking in the views from both the beach and outside deck which are unbelievable and has amazing photo ops every day. Overall, the location is a unique, seasonal, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere that is 'far away from it all' but only 15 minutes to downtown Burlington.

Best spot on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Sandy beach with dock in protected bay created the perfect playing, swimming, boating and bonfire area for our family. The house is clean and well supplied. It is spacious and lovely. Easy access to 89 creates a quick trip to Burlington and beyond. We feel lucky to have found this perfect place on the lake.

Perfect lakeside getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week at this lakeside rental. We were 2 families with 6 teenagers and really enjoyed the easy access to the lake & beachfront, the campfire right on the beach, outdoor grill area, and the convenience of having our boat accessible right on their dock. The kids enjoyed fishing and use of rowboat and 2 seat kayak.

Also not to be overlooked, the inside was clean and well appointed, and we all really enjoyed the huge lower level game room/bar/entertainment area. The separate bar refrigerator, great stereo and pool table were all a big hit!

We're looking forward to another staycation here!

Amazing house and location! We are going back!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this from the pics on the listing. This house has everything! It was even more than we expected! The location is right off of the highway and easy to get to Burlington. You are in a beautiful bay with easy access to hiking trails in the state park and lazy days on the beach. The kayak allowed us to explore the rivers and bay and the back deck was perfect! The downstairs is a whole other experience with a pool table and entertainment area. We also did a day trip to Montreal! Less than 90 mins. We are headed back this summer!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house sight-unseen, only from pics, and we weren't disappointed. Great location and fun things to do even if it rains. :)

Located on a nice inlet cove on Lake Champlain. Not far to Burlington for some great eats as well.

Car: recommended

This house is located on Niquette Bay in Colchester, VT with 100 feet of sandy beach just outside your door. This is a PRIME location for summer enthusiasts with a dock for your boats, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, water skiing, swimming and relaxing with all of the lake action right in front of you. Niquette Bay is a haven for many sail boats, day boaters and water skiers throughout the summer and fall months. Niquette Bay State Park has numerous hiking trails and offers another set of wonderful views from its trails all accessible from a quick walk down the beach. Malletts Bay boat launch (public launch) is a 20 minute drive and launches directly across the bay from the house. This house is “away from it all” located off of a dirt road; however, it is only 1 mile off of Interstate 89 and only 15 minutes from downtown Burlington but offers all of the beauty and serenity of being much farther away.
