Great location and convenient to local area activities. Well appointed kitchen and great views.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this location over Christmas and to New Year’s Day with our family - 14 people in all - during a brutally cold week in VT. We were safe and warm inside with the wood burning stove adding ambience and additional warmth. The gas stove on the new sitting room was also a wonderful place to engage in a puzzle or conversation.

The highlights of the house are:

Views to take your breath away - especially as we watched the lake freeze over.

A very well appointed kitchen with high end cookware and the gadgets you need.

Large master bedroom and bath with jacuzzi tub.

Four season sun room set off from kitchen and a good get away spot.

Sleeping space for all of us.

The downside and reason for the 4 star rating is that for 14 in the winter the living space is a bit tight. We were able to do all we wanted and had places to escape the mayhem of adults and children, but the loss of the outdoors for expansion of the living space because of the weather was unfortunate. (I can only imagine the space in the summer and it must be glorious). If our stay had been in the summer, we would have given it a 5 star rating

The owner is very accommodating and accessible. They checked on us as a courtesy, to which we were grateful. He also resolved the small questions we had easily by phone, since he knows his property well.

This is a property we would consider returning to during any time of the year, but would like to experience it in the warmer months.

Though it can accommodate the full load of people, I would think the best number for a group would be 5 couples (10 people) since every pair would have their own space. And it would be even better for eight people or fewer.

Highly recommend this property.

Wonderful house for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This ended to be the perfect house for our family. The kids loved the third floor dorm and there was plenty of space for the 11 of us. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need. The view was amazing and there was plenty of space outside to play badminton, soccer, etc. not to forget the kayaks to enjoy the lake. Of course South Hero region is amazing for biking, and we took advantage of it. Our one-day bike trip to Burlington was a nice adventure and allowed us to also enjoy the city.

This was a wonderful family vacation. The owners, Tina and Jack gave us multiple tips and suggestions of things to do in the area and insured we had what we needed to spend a wonderful time. We would definitively go back again!

We would definitively recommend to anyone who want to take vacation in the Lake Champlain region.

Wonderful stay over New Years

  • 5 of 5

Went up with a group of 5 and a dog it was just lovely. The house is cozy and beautiful, and the view of the lake is extraordinary. We spent the days touring Burlington and in the evenings had a great time relaxing by the fireplace, cooking, and playing board games. John and Tina made sure we knew how to reach them and seemed like they would have been very responsive should any issues have arisen -- though the house was waiting for us so perfectly, there was no need. We'd love to come back again!

Fantastic lakeside property

  • 5 of 5

Our large family stayed at this great lakeside property for a wedding in South Hero. The house was spacious and had great accommodations, large family room to gather in while looking at the lake and a great kitchen, quiet sunroom for reading, and fun backyard for playing around in. The kitchen was perfectly set up and allowed a team effort to cook and serve dinner to the group. The wind off the lake was restful and everyone said how much they enjoyed the chance to be together throughout the weekend. The bedrooms were spacious and wonderfully decorated. We felt this experience added tremendously to the wedding of our nephew because we had such good memories of being together instead of at a hotel where everyone is separated in different rooms. We hope to return in the summer!
