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 Ferrisburgh

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!

Nice comfortable clean place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The main bedroom had a queen bed that was firm and clean. The couches in the living room were comfortable and there was lots of space to lounge. The porch was great for sitting with a great view of the lake. The owners are very helpful and keep in contact throughout your stay to see if you need anything. There are plenty of things to do in the area, but is also a nice place to kick back and relax. There is no internet so it's a great place to unplug and unwind!

Wonderful and extremely accommodating

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our "mini" honeymoon getaway. Duncan provided local drinks, cheese, salami, etc. as a gift which was very nice! He kept us informed throughout our entire stay including locations for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and entertainment. There were record high temperatures in the area during our stay so he let us know about the AC in the cottage which was a life saver. We were able to kayak and enjoy some time on the lake and relax on the dock. There are plenty of things in the small towns surrounding the cottage and Burlington is not very far at all either. We do plan to stay here again, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested. Thank you so much, Duncan!

First impression, steps and doorway very dirty, all windows facing lake also very dirty.

  • 4 of 5

The place looked cleaned inside but very dusty when you moved things around. If

wasn't for that it would be 5 stars. We got there 9-10-17 for a perfect week. The

owners very nice and would help in any way they would. Every thing worked fine,

heat, air, stove. Had wonderful time, great location. Went kayaking many times had nice campfires. Took the Ferry to NY. We enjoyed everything, looking forward to going back next year. We are both Senior and our legs aren't the greatest. A handrail on the back septs would have been nice.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. I'll admit that it is a challenge to keep the lakeside windows clean with all the trees/pollen. My focus is on keeping the inside clean, and I do a thorough job of vacuuming and cleaning all kitchen and bath surfaces between guests. But I will try to give the windows more attention! I appreciate your comments about the handrail on the back step - I will talk to my contractor about that. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit!
