“It was a little slice of heaven!”

We have rented previous houses for our summer vacation and have been very disappointed. This house was a totally different experience. Jack and John, the owners, were very gracious and quick to respond to any question. The house is cozy and comfortable with a kitchen that has everything. But what really made our trip was the amazing location right on Lake Champlain, facing west with access to boating and swimming. We kayaked and swam and also used the rail trail which is just a short ride away. It was difficult to tear ourselves away from the deck, house and water. There is, however, a lot to do fairly close by if you are looking for more than a totally relaxing vacation. We would like to rent again next year!

“Sunset Heaven”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This cottage is very well equipped and comfortable. We loved the deck in full, close up view of the lake and evening sunsets on clear nights. It also had a table and chairs where you could eat your meals outside which was lovely. The owners provide sheets and towels, kayaks , washer/dryer and WiFi. There art two TV's for anyone who wishes to watch TV and wonderful lighting and comfortable chairs to sit and read. The sunsets were spectacular when we were there. We found the cottage interesting, welcoming and very relaxing. Our one concern, as older guests who like to kayak and swim, was the steep, stone access to the water. However, we did get a few good kayak paddles in, one at sunset we shall never forget!

“Perfect”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The owner Jack was easy to deal with, communicated quickly and effectively, and described the house / location perfectly. Our week at the cottage was spectacular. Even in late July, daytime and evening temperatures were easily managed by opening the windows and allowing the lake breeze to flow through the house.

Views of the lake were great both morning and evening! We spent quite a lot of time in the water both swimming and in the kayaks / canoe. With swimming, water shoes are necessary because of the stones on the lake bed.

We had great access to the local park / beach just up the road from the house; to Swanton and the local Hannaford supermarket, the Saturday farmers market in Swanton town square, and Maple City Candy; and St Albans with another supermarket, Walmart, and small shops and restaurants (along with another beautiful town square).

Our day trips to Montreal and to Burlington were simple to get to because of the location relative to the highway. The bike riding from the house isalso great! Maquam Shore Road is part of the Champlain Bikeway!! I rode both the Missisquoi Rail Trail a couple of time and several other rides on the road, and each of them was spectacular. There is information at the house detailing the bike riding in Vermont, the wildlife refuge on the lake, and activities in Franklin County and around Vermont. Jack and John have an extremely well set up house (you really need to just bring yourself and some food), plenty of activities at the house and within easy walking or driving distances, and a fantastic location overlooking the lake. I am looking forward to more vacation time here in the upcoming years (one week was just not enough time!!).
