This spacious cottage is deceptively large as it was once two separate cottages that we joined together. The three bedroom configuration is unique with two of the rooms furnished with queen beds and the middle bedroom with a twin over full bunk bed and twin trundle. The cottage includes a canoe for cruising the lake and two hammocks to take it down. Enjoy a large deck on the lake or screened in porch to relax. There is also an expansive back yard with a golf net and plenty of room to play outdoor games.

About Chris Poulin
We are two hard working professionals in the physical therapy and sports performance industry. We travel a lot ourselves and take many of our experiences to continue to improve our guests experience while they stay in the cottage. We grew up in Vermont and currently live in North Carolina but return to our cottage frequently to enjoy all that it has to offer.
Chris Poulin purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Chris Poulin chose Saint Albans Town
This cottage as been our family retreat since we bought it in 2006. We have poured time, money and a lot of heart into this cottage. We moved our family to NC in 2012 and now we want to share our private escape with others. You will leave your cares behind the moment you step foot onto "Poulin Shores". May you love this place as much as we have. Looking forward to having you back every year.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is on a historic piece of property that has been enjoyed by families for generations. Nearly all of the properties are occupied by their owners due to the great community feel and family friendly atmosphere. We want you to make memories and try to include as much as we can for you to do that.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
A nice fall getaway
We had a good time, the place is nice and clean, and very spacious , well kept and in a good location so I can launch my boat and go fishing close by. We're already planning to come back in June as we've booked the place again! The only problem we had this time of year was the wind was relentless and blowing out of the North made tough for fishing. But that's Mother Nature you can't control it
We are glad that you had a good time James and I will do my best to order up some better weather for June when you return!
Scenic and lovely
We loved our stay at this charming cottage on Lake Champlain! It was spacious yet cozy inside, with plenty of room for our family. Loved all the games, the large backyard, the deck overlooking the water, and the well-equipped kitchen. The beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was large and included a stacked washer/dryer. The location was fantastic. We jogged around the area (even saw a fox!) and took a quick canoe excursion too. While the cottage is a bit of a drive from Burlington, we didn't mind the scenic trip at all. Stop for groceries in St. Alban's or Swanton, as this location is wonderfully secluded. We would love to return!
Comfortable and Relaxing Cottage
We enjoyed our early September visit to the cottage. The cottage was neat and clean and well organized. There was a variety of appliances that should meet anyone's needs for the stay. The beach area was a bit unkept but not to the point that it was undesirable. We enjoyed the stay and hope to be able to do it again.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. We are always looking to exceed everyone’s expectations. Hope to have you back again.
Felt right at home, seriously we have the same sofa ;) The view is absolutely beautiful. The cabin was comfortable and clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Really enjoyed reading on the hammock by the water. We would recommend this property!
Excellent Location for R&R
What an excellent location on the Lake. Wonderful views (& sunsets) of the lake & islands from onshore deck, screened in porch, or relaxing inside on the comfy leather sofa thru big picture windows. The cabin was much more spacious than I had expected. Furnishings were clean and comfortable. Great place to rest and relax, or getting out in the water on the canoe or biking down the road, as they provided lots of "toys". Chris, the owner, was terrific to work with and quick to respond to any questions. I would definitely rent from him again.
Thanks for the honest review and I’m glad that you enjoyed the cottage. Have a great summer and hope to have you back sometime soon.
Exceeded our expectations !
CAUTION This is not the Marriott ! The Marriott does not have the warm Vermont vibe that this cabin exudes. Clean, well appointed and well equipped Poulin Shores was as advertised and provided us with a great vacation experience. Great restaurants in St. Albins for those nights that you don't want to cook. Side trips to Montreal and Burlington were quite doable. Always returned to the cabin for incredible sunsets over the water.
Thanks Chris and Jen for allowing us to spend a week here. Hope to return.
Jeff & Elaine
Thanks Jeff and Elaine! It’s reading reviews like this that makes sharing our cottage so rewarding. I hope others will feel as thankful as y’all. We appreciate your honest review.
You have access to a private beach and bon fires are allowed but please bring your own wood free of nails etc. There is a washer and dryer on-site.
