Please read our full description below:

The Tree Tops Cottages is a small family friendly resort located on the Southern end of South Hero on a private 7+ acre property with over 920 feet of direct frontage on Lake Champlain. Originally built in the 1920's, there are only 4 privately sited cottages on the whole 7.5 acre property. Multiple generational families have been coming to Tree Tops Cottages for decades. It may be possible to rent 2, 3 or 4 cottages at the same time for a family reunion. Each unique cottage is restored in the rustic Vermont Camp style, and offers great lake views. This is not a luxury resort, rather a down home, friendly, relaxing place only 20 minutes to Burlington.

The gradual shale beach is weed free and is rare (for Lake Champlain) due to the fact that it is south facing, which affords all day sunshine and protection from cool northerly breezes. The 'Outer Malletts Bay' lake location offers warmer and calmer water than the 'Broad Lake'.

Intimate, peaceful location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked a trip to Vermont to see our family member run in the Burlington Marathon. The location of Tree Top is about 20 minutes from Burlington. It is perfect because you are close enough so that you can can enjoy the many activities that Burlington has to offer but far enough away to really enjoy being on Lake Champlain and in nature. The Point Cottage was rustic with stunning views. This location was perfect for us because it is dog friendly and we were able to bring our 2 year old pup with us on the family vacation. Skip was a great host. I highly recommend the Tree Top cottages if you are looking for a serene place right on Lake Champlain.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful short stay at TreeTops. Skip and Barbara were most welcoming and the cottage met the needs of the three of us (me, my adult daughter, and my 90 year old mother) very well. Lovely views, comfortable cottage, and very close to Colchester where my older daughter lives--we will be back!

My friend and I came for a mommy get away and we absolutely enjoyed our stay! The cabin was perfect and the grounds were gorgeous. The owner Skip was very pleasant and attentive. We will definitely be back!

Perfect little getaway

  • 5 of 5

My teenage son and I decided to have a mini-vacation together. The cottages evoke the era of a bygone time, yet are clean and have everything one would need. I love the little dining table nook. The site is very picturesque and has a perfect "beach" for skipping stones. I enjoyed the kayaks one afternoon. The proximity to Burlington and Winooski mean that dining is not an issue if you don't feel like cooking every night. Skip and Barb are very gracious hosts. We fully intend to go back!
