Rustic/Quaint Cottage (Camp) on Lake Champlain (RENOVATED IN 2015)

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

2 Formal Bedrooms, 1 Patio/Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

Completely renovated and updated in the Fall of 2015. Fully furnished kitchen and bathroom, washer/dryer, cathedral ceilings, air-conditioning, wood floors, and all the creature comforts of home. Though the house does not sit directly on the waterfront, the property abuts the lake andt offers a very short 1 minute (150 ft) walk to lakefront. Set back on a wooded lot, the cottage (aka: Camp) offers privacy, seclusion, solitude. The protected cove is lined with rock ledges and beaches with lots of places to swim. Enjoy family gatherings or a quite weekend alone with someone special. A tennis court and playground is located a short walk away and nature trails abound literally a few feet from the cottage. Come explore the grandeur of Lake Champlain & the nearby Green Mountains and Adirondacks. Though not a luxury home, the cottage is cozy, campy yet comfortable with a full kitchen & bathroom, pine-sided living/sitting room, and bedrooms fitted with new furnishings. One bedroom faces sunny south and the other larger patio bedroom faces the lake. Enjoy the scenery, solitude, fresh air, fall foliage, or simply escape the city or summer heat. Surely one of the best deals in town.

About Victor or Sally

We (Sally and Victor) have been happily married for 27 years and have 2 wonderful children and 4 fabulous grandchildren. Victor recently retired after a 30 year law enforcement/counterterrorism career. Sally spent her career in the restaurant biz and also recently retired. Our son is a SGT in the US Army and our daughter is a housemaker and Mommy. Grandkids are all little.

Victor or Sally purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Victor or Sally chose Lake Champlain Valley

Sally is from the same area and a true Vermonter. Victor first visited Vermont in 1986 and fell in love with the area immediately. The people are so friendly, life is slower, and the scenery is absolutely stunning.

What makes this cottage unique

Even though cottage is typically the least expensive vacation rental lake property in the area, it offers the same amenities, comfort, and lake access of much more expensive cottages.

Clean, comfortable and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great relaxing week at the cottage this past week. It was quiet, clean, comfortable and extremely relaxing. We enjoyed being so close to the lake and being in awe of the amazing views. Plus it was very convient and quick trip into Burlington for a great meal and some awesome craft brews! It was the perfect way to end our summer and celebrate a birthday, we are already planning our trip back next year! Thank you for having us.

Clean, quaint, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Casa Lago a few weeks ago. The location was great with close proximity to the lake. The newly renovated cottage met all of our needs and was very tidy and comfy. The owners were very friendly, responsive, and answered all of our questions. I would highly recommend a visit to Casa Lago!

Little cottage in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Casa Lago is a quaint little cottage in the woods. I felt like snow white. I spent a few hours on the porch reading. Humming birds were buzzing around looking for food, a little frog sat on the chair next to me, the chipmunks scurried around and a friendly cat came up for a scratch behind the ears.The other Long Point residents were very nice. We even went to a block party.

Just around the corner past the end of the driveway is lake access. We brought our canoe and Paddle board. The cove was perfect for water sports and swimming. We had a quiet and relaxing stay. If you enjoy camping with the comforts of home, you will love this little cottage near the lake.

My Time Away

  • 5 of 5

I really got away! As hectic as our jobs and everyday life can be, I had long yearned for a time when I could get away from it all - alone - just me, to reflect on the great life I have! Our son attended the Middlebury Language immersion program this summer. While I was out running through the Wasatch Back Mountains in Utah, my husband accompanied Matt to the school. I got to pick him up (He's in High School). So I booked this quiet, quaint, lovely cottage for a few days. It is straight up exactly how it's described. It was cozy, comfy, and very beautiful. I spent very little time inside because the yard, deck and surrounding areas are so beautiful! I was quite surprised at how beautiful Vermont is. The hosts, Victor & Sally were great. I wish I could have stayed longer! My son informed me he will be applying to Middlebury for College - guess where I'll be staying when I visit? The lake was beautiful throughout the day, the kayak and canoe are easily accessible. There is a small deck that I sat on for hours and just watch the birds, squirrels, chipmonks, and other beautiful things. I sat on the lakeshore one day and soaked up the sun! Neighbors are wonderful, house is wonderful - ALL GOOD!
