About the property

Lakefront 3 Bed/1 Bath Cottage With Breathtaking Views Of Lake Champlain

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The picutures are accurate and the camp is wonderful. It was everything we were looking for and more. It's in a very desireable place along Lake Champlain and I highly recommend it. It was perfect for our family of five with a dog. Chris was so easy to communicate with. It was obvious that he loves his property and he is happy that others get to share it. You will be provided with everything you need and it's a short drive for groceries. I've stayed at a number of different places along Lake Champlain in Vermont and this was my favorite by far. The combination of location, space and friendliness of those around you are perfect. We will be back again for sure and I'm already missing the view.

We had a wonderful 2 weeks stay at the cabin. It was very spacious, beautiful yard, Chris answered any questions we had promptly. The best part was it was a pet friendly vacation home that we really appreciated.

Excellent! Relaxing and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed! It was a fabulous weekend! There was about an inch or two of snow the night we arrived and the weather was chilly all weekend. The beds were made with blankets and comforters so we were warm and toasty while sleeping. The camp was plenty warm as well! Chris Poulin was very prompt and helpful with any questions or issues we had. The view was breathtaking and the surroundings were tranquil and quiet. We would highly recommend this property to anyone!

This was the perfect get away for us. We were able to experience VT with our niece & her hubby, stay in with great views, had a tasty early Thanksgiving dinner & relax. We look forward to future visits.

I wish we could have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

Quirky, charming. We were in St Albans for a weekend event and were looking for an alternative to a bland motel room, well this was it! Just what we were looking for. It was a little chilly for beach sitting, but we had a lovely sunset from inside.

Great place to get away!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this camp. It's right on the lake and very quiet - a perfect getaway. Chris is an excellent host. The house is rustic but comfortable. The beach is great (with 4 chairs provided), though water shoes are a good idea. The water was a bit too rough for canoeing most of the time we were there, but a canoe is provided. Boats can also be rented on the calmer bay side at Kill Kare State Park a few miles down the road. Sunsets are amazing. It was just what we were looking for in terms of a calm family getaway.
