About Vaughan

Dad bought this property before I was born, and I built the home in 2004/5. I live here most of the time between May and the end of October, except when I am sharing it with old and new friends.

As a kid I camped out here, as I did with my children. Dad loved the lake and its incredible waters.

My background is as a professional, and I am a published writer.

Why Vaughan chose Lake Hortonia

It IS a home, and is furnished as one. It is the best lake rental in Vermont.

If you want a quiet place with lots of outdoor activities you will not find a better place. It is solidly built and is not a camp. With an all wood interior, plenty of space for family, and very pleasant surroundings, it is ideal for families or couples.

Inside and outside you are looking out over the lake. When you get here, grab the loft bedroom, with its views of the lake, before the kids see it.

It is a place to which you will want to return, and one which I could never sell.

Not far away is wonderful and historic Lake Champlain which is the most important waterway in U.S. history. A short drive and a scenic ferry ride take you to 'America's Fort', Fort Ticonderoga, with its great views, history, and hands on activities for children and adults.

Sunset Lake is for someone who wants to get away from blacktop, box stores, and traffic, and who enjoys the outdoors from a real home.

What makes this house unique

I remember, before there was a road into the west end of the lake, crossing the lake in a canoe sitting in Mom's lap with Dad paddling. He went the Scout Camp, on a nearby lake and fell in love with it, as my children and I have, and as you will.

As I intimated above, bring your children here, and you will have them willing captives for the time you are here.

Or, bring someone with whom you want to spend some romantic time, just you and he/she, and have real time together, and fall in love all over again, and again.

Heaven on earth!

  • 5 out of 5
As you sit on the deck sipping your morning coffee, the sun's viberant rays sparkle like diamonds shimmering on the water's surface. The musical voices of nature smooth your soul until you are ready to play,swim,fish or go canoeing to explore the lake. Hiking the paths in the woods and exploring the fruits the forrest, to bring back your own bouquet of natual wonders to adorn the table for the next meal, is always a treat! Drive back to the highway, down the dirt road and you at at your favorite horse show or in the social world of hussle and bussle in moments. This cottage is a vacation paradise for the active or the reflecting writer. A place for a romantic get away, a family get together or three couples who want to get out of the city!
I cannot get back to this home away from home soon enough and I trust you will feel the same way too when you get here!

Notes:
At the end of a quiet road with 350' of private lake frontage, the home sits on a little hill overlooking beautiful Lake Sunset. Easy lake access is available from part of the frontage. There are no neighbors beyond my lake home, and only friendly neighbors as you approach, with the nearest about 150' away. I have an outdoor primitive fire pit for BBQ, cookouts, and toasting marshmallows, as well as a small charcoal BBQ you may use. If you want a quiet place with happy children or a romantic getaway, with lots of outdoor fun, adventures and activities this is it. (Some parents with teenagers love it because they actually enjoy a week or two with their kids.) There are two fantastic family museums within an easy drive, but I have been told, 'thanks for telling us about the all other things, but we never wanted to leave.'
