About Duncan Adamson

We are a family of four living in South Burlington, Vermont - just 15 miles north of the cottage. We all enjoy the outdoors - hiking, skiing, boating, biking, swimming, etc. - and the cottage is a great leaping-off point for all of those things! We love to share it with others who enjoy it as much as we do.

Duncan Adamson purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Duncan Adamson chose World

We fell in love with the place as soon as we saw it. The view, the location, the charming shingled cottage, the wonderful Long Point neighborhood...

It is an easy place to love!

What makes this cottage unique

We've joked that we would have bought the place if it was just a front porch. It is such a perfect place to look out at the lake and enjoy time with friends and family.

Peaceful and comfortable with a beautiful waterview

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect, exactly as it was described. The beds were comfortable, the house had everything we needed and it was in a beautiful quiet location that was a short ride away from anything we needed. Loved everything especially the fishing which was amazing. We will be back!

Book It

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at Duncans place. The house was just the right size for our family of 4 and had everything we needed. Direct access to the water was wonderful. The canoe and kayaks were used just about every day and fishing along the rocks was a hit.

You will find it easy to bounce between many of the small towns in the area and you're about 30 minutes from Burlington. Bartlett Falls was our favorite spot which is located just past the town of Bristol, great swimming holes on a hot day. So much to do and see in the area. We miss it already.

Camp on a cove- great for a small family with small kids!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the camp for three weeks in July 2018. The owner was very attentive and accommodating. Great for little kids because the cove is shallow and sandy. We enjoyed the AC during a heatwave.
