Guestbook comments from the owner

Upon entering this rental it became obvious that the owners had

comfort and convenience in mind when doing the renovations. It was

also obvious that they genuinely cared about making their property

feel like a home away from home. This show of respect towards

prospective tenants was matched by the personal service that we

received. Our dealings with Nate were nothing short of excellent. He

was always very helpful, and went out of his way to make sure we had a

pleasant stay. All of their efforts were well appreciated by our


We loved the open floor plan, and there was plenty of nice furniture

for all to be comfy. We had up to nine people in our party, and we had

plenty of room. The master bedroom was big enough for our son's family

to camp out in - and they still had room to move around! We also had

plenty of closet/storage space. Having two television areas was nice,

and both had a lot of channels to choose from - to include free


The outside offered a lot of space as well - decks front and back with

ample seating, and a good sized yard. I liked the fact that the grill

was set up on its own side deck. The home has woods on one side, and a

few trees forming a barrier on the other. Privacy was never an issue.

A great place to kick back with family and/or friends.

The location was not as remote as we first thought. The drive through

the islands did not seem to take long, so our excursion to Burlington

proved to be a nice outing. The drives to NY to buy groceries were a

great way to explore the area, and did not feel inconvenient. The Isle

of LaMotte is right across the bridge that is in the picture of the

lake. Across the bridge in the other direction (North Hero) is a food

vendor who has good food at reasonable prices. FYI: next to this

concession is a convenience store where you can purchase fishing

licenses on the spot. You can opt to buy a 1, 3, or 7 day license.

AND, if you plan on having a private charter for a day of fishing, be

sure to tell the Captain your location - I was able to have our group

picked up at our dock!

Although we weren't directly on the water, we left with only two

regrets: We only booked for one week - not two; and we didn't have our


We would stay here again and hope to return one day!

Wonderful stay in a beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottge with plenty of nooks and crannies for being all together or for quiet time. The cottage lacks nothing with a beach in front of the house for wading( it is quite shallow) to the beautiful beach at the alburgh dunes about a five min. drive. Lots of room for the grand kids to run around. Nice spot for cycling or walking. Not too far from platsburgh and Burlington.

Thanks for making this property available.

Good location

  • 3 of 5

When we entered the camp we were overwhelmed with the smell of rodent feces, and when we warmed the oven it became much worse. The gas stove in the living room was inoperable. The pilot light would not stay lit. Otherwise the camp held up good for a group of 7. The casting stove also worked well. The location worked out great near great fishing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback about our home on Lake Champlain. We take great pride, and measures, to keep our home clean and insect/rodent free. The "smell" you noticed were moth balls, which are used in the winter months. We also have sonogram machines set up to create sound waves to deter any unwanted critters. Glad you enjoyed our home and the ice fishing. Nate-

Blissfully charming home awaits...

  • 5 of 5

I chose this beautifully appointed island home to be near the venue where my equally beautiful daughter was getting married and I'm so glad I did. It is equipped from top to bottom with anything and everything you could possibly need (the kitchen is truly a dream kitchen that oozes folkish charm and comfort) and offers a ton of room for family friends and bridal brunches! The bedrooms are beautiful and delightfully inviting and offered all of us a restful night's sleep and welcome privacy. The house is feet away from the lake so the views are breathtaking. My sister enjoyed her morning yoga sessions on the porch and runs around the island. We all want to return for a family vacay and hope to do that soon! Highly recommend this dream home for a much needed respite and recreation!

Quiet & roomy, but mix of pleasant & seedy

  • 3 of 5

This home was generally roomy; four us of never felt crowded. The bedrooms, one bathroom and the kitchen--the spaces that were remodeled--felt comfortable & pleasant. The skylights made the whole space feel bright & cheerful.

However, only the visible areas seemed to have been cleaned. If you had the misfortune of dropping a toothbrush behind the vanity it was buried in a cloud of dust. The screens were coated in a season's worth of bugs. The yard had junk surrounding it.

Areas that hadn't been remodeled--like the exterior, the second bathroom, and the porches--just looked seedy. And the showers were extremely narrow; the average adult would feel very confined.

From the photos on the profile, one would get the impression that the higher rental for this house was warranted by the attractive remodeling. The pix don't lie, but they give an incomplete impression.

Comfortable home on Lake Champlain

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about this home!! The house is even better in person. We had two families of four stay for a week and there was more than enough room for everyone. Just a quick walk to the lake and plenty water toys for all. Paddle boards and kayaks were easily accessible and in great shape. The house had everything we needed from coffee to paper towels. It was clean and had up to date appliances and comfortable bedrooms. The owners were very kind and provided plenty of ways to contact them if need be. Would definitely recommend this home, we look forward to returning in the future!

Beautiful lake front home

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect for our short stay in Alburgh. The house was bigger than expected and the six adults had plenty of room. The furnishings and decorations were beautiful. It was very comfy,cozy and clean. It was equipped with everything you needed. the owner was available for any questions or concerns that may have arisen. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. We wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the house and yard more.
