About Jennifer and Todd

Ambitious and accomplished, we are an industrious duo that function as a well-oiled machine. As high school sweethearts, we grew together on the shores of Lake Champlain, then journeyed to Washington D.C. for a fresh start. We have lived the urbanite dream for nearly two decades and raised a handful of ankle-biters (yes, five!). We are able escape to our special home often, but also would like to share it with others. When we receive great reviews about our "little slice of heaven", it truly warms our heart! We feel so delighted to share our special place with the world.

Jennifer and Todd purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Jennifer and Todd chose Lake Champlain Valley

Ten years ago we decided to purchase a cabin on beautiful Lake Champlain in order to be closer to family. Our family has spent every summer this past decade enjoying the ups and downs of transforming this once dilapidated cabin into a rustic retreat. Post-purchase, it quickly became clear that our hopes for spending time at a relaxing getaway were a bit misguided. This project-after-project lifestyle offered us the inspiration we needed to name our cozy lakefront cabin: an ironic, ‘Serenity Now’. Her name, derived from the comedic sitcom, Seinfeld, which once featured an overworked man exclaiming ‘serenity now’ amidst a variety of stressful circumstances. Our family, especially our five kiddos, found themselves affectionately adopting this phrase. With herculean effort, we have transformed this challenging fixer-upper into a modern Adirondack-style escape. We are exuberantly proud to share her with all of you.

What makes this cabin unique

Serenity Now is directly lakefront as opposed to many area properties with a road barrier to Lake Champlain. You will find the lake by opening french doors and following a beautiful slate walkway down to a second deck overlooking the lake. We have tried hard to preserve the authentic nature of our Adirondack cabin. Guests truly feel transformed to someplace magical and serene. At Serenity Now, you are surrounded by all things beautiful and rustic. Our home is clean, comfortable and modern. There really is no "roughing it" despite the rustic surroundings and so we appeal to even the most discerning of vacationers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved everything about our stay! Being unplugged, playing in the waves, snuggling with the kids in the hammock, and just being together without distraction. What a great retreat from the chaos of life. Thank you for this beautiful experience.

Pictures Don't Show The Magic!!

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house with three girlfriends, fairly last minute. We were looking to fully unplug, in a private setting. Serenity Now could now have been more perfect!

Jennifer was very responsive, and we appreciated her accommodating our request for a flexible check-out. The house was very clean, and neat (and wonderfully stocked). We appreciated the thoughtful welcome note on arrival!

COME RAIN OR SHINE. Though we arrived on a rainy day, we were all immediately taken with the beautifully appointed cabin and the view of the lake, as soon as you open the front door. Though it rained our first night we enjoyed the unbeatable views, and wine, board games and laughter in the cozy living room. We were excited to realize that the main road was a nice place for long walks/runs to start the day with some physical activity. We loved the outdoor fireplace for relaxing in the evening - what more do you need than the sound of water and s'mores!

We cannot wait to return next summer and look forward to taking full advantage of the gorgeous water in the warmer weather.

Thank you again Jennifer and Todd for the hospitality!

Amazing and beautiful with all of the perfect amenities

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was exactly what we were looking for. The lake views are gorgeous and the cottage charming and cozy. The owners were attentive with special details like a Kuerig with starter cups, creamer in the fridge, soap, shampoo, etc. in case you don't get to the store immediately. In addition, they touched base to ensure our stay was going well even though their instructions were well detailed. We enjoyed boating on the lake and the town launch was free. This was the perfect relaxing getaway!

Peaceful, beautiful lakefront property

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed 5 nights here with my husband and wished I had stayed a couple more nights! The lake is beautiful with surprisingly warm water, very clean to swim in. My husband caught several fish, smallmouth bass I was told, right from the backyard lake access. And the kitchen here is fully stocked socI had all the pans/utensils I needed to cook it up! There is a nice grill we used, a fire pit and inside I was happy to find a Chromecast accessible TV to stream the Mayweather fight on! The owner was also very accessible by phone/text to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. I hope to return next year!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This adorable cabin was perfect for a quick getaway with my two children ages 7 & 10. We unplugged from a busy life and I delighted in watching them swim, blow bubbles, and play for hours on end. There was no need to go anywhere else! We thoroughly enjoyed every moment. It was everything I'd hoped for--clean, peaceful, well stocked for cooking and even a hammock for the three of us to read in!

Owner's Response: Jenn, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay! We certainly strive to have everything a renter may need at their fingertips. I'm so happy you were able to unplug, decompress, and watch your kids enjoy several days by the lake. We hope to see you back next year! Best wishes.

Great Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time with the family in this charming camp on the lake. Has the perfect "camp" feeling and the work put in by the owners really shows. Amazing sunrise views and fun by the fire atvnight. Would definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: Phin, So glad to hear you enjoyed the cabin with the kids and family. The sunrise views are second to none. Hopefully the kids discovered the blanket chest of games/toys to play with! We've tried hard to keep the authentic feel of an Adirondack cabin while updating the amenities of the cabin. We are glad you liked it. Take care!

Owner's Response: Joe, So happy to hear that you and your friends had a nice men's retreat! Nothing like catching up with old buddies and reminiscing about the good 'old days. There is something magical and comforting about gathering around a campfire and sharing stories. Hope you had time for fishing... I hear it's pretty good right outside our doors.
