I called on a Saturday Columbus Day Weekend for a Saturday night reservation during fall foliage! Not the brightest move. However, I was pleasantly surprised to be able to get a 2 BDRM cottage for my family and I. It is really off the "main road"...more like a cottage/camping type community but beautiful right on the banks of Lake Champlain at the south basin. We got there at twilight and by the time we got the key for our cottage it was darker and made for finding the cottage a challenge. You can be in the right vicinity but the cottages are just not as well lit as they should be so being my first time we tried three properties before we got to our property. The 2 BDRM was very nice...no TV's so make sure the kids know ahead of time (I thought mine were going to have the shakes), but we had a quiet evening. The condition of the property was nice, not overly immaculate and it seemed like all of the lights needed to be plugged in as they weren't which made it even darker in the room. There is a very small kitchenette area but no microwave. Overall, we were grateful to have the room/cottage and the staff had a Halloween theme going and EVERYONE including front desk staff were in full costume (MADE IT FUN).
