Wonderful place in the woods

The property has greeted us with some fresh cinnamon buns! A nice small detail to help you feel welcome!

Brian - one of the property managers - has equipped us with instructions for the house explaining where everything is, including what to see and where to eat. He was also very responsive to ad-hoc questions!

The kitchen was fully equipped with everything from dishes and cups to appliances to spices (a lot of those). Really useful when traveling with a large family. The only small inconvenience in the kitchen was a kettle that would leak when pouring water.

Game room in the basement was packed with various games - from the pool for adults to table hockey to various table games for kids. Very useful things to keep kids busy in a good way :)

The backyard was, perhaps, the best thing about this place. Equipped with firepit, this was the place where we'd meet after the long hours of trailblazing to share our impressions and enjoy the evening lake. I have to say, I haven't seen such starry skies ever before. Even northern Michigan is far behind...

The house also comes with some kayaks and a pedal boat - I just wish the water was not as cold when we stayed there :)

A few things that can be improved: the carpets were dirty with some sticky stains in one of the rooms. Some of the restrooms were a little dirty.

Cellular coverage in the area is spotty at best, so wi-fi in the building was very welcome. The internet connection was a little slow for about 10 devices, though.

Among the things to see in the area, Whiteface mountain and Ausable Chasm were the most exciting, so make sure you visit them.

The title “Living the Dream” is exactly what it was. Renting this property was worth every penny and we had one of the most relaxing vacations ever. I highly recommend this rental property to anyone. Whenever you wished that you had something, it was there from different games to play to consumables like paper towels. Absolutely amazing!

Exterior - 4 Stars
Exterior was awesome and it was so nice to sit in nags head chairs while the kids swam in the lake. The fire pit was awesome and it was perfect playing corn hole and bocce. The lake access could have been better down ay the water. It was tricky to get the kayaks and paddle boat over the rock terrain.

Amenities - 5 Stars

This wonderful home is beautifully equipped and furnished with a tasteful sense of style.

Exterior - 4 Stars

First impression of the front home exterior suggests perhaps the home needs a paint job. However, the back decks, lawn areas and fire pit are comfortable and picturesque. Our grandchildren had a wonderful time on the flat lawn chasing bubbles and balls. We all enjoyed the campfire in the fire pit as we gazed at the vast expanse of lake in front of us. The change in color of the lake as nightfall crept in was peaceful and serene. We enjoyed the cool breezes from the dock placed out into the lake and those brave enough, delighted in quick swims from the dock. Lake access is superb! Couldn't get closer and the privacy...well you felt like you were in your own private piece of paradise.

Amenities - 5 Stars

The home was superbly equipped! The kitchen had tools for everything...baking cookies, grilling, and general food preparation. The dishes, cutlery and glassware were abundant and of good quality. Linens and bath towels were first rate. The amenities surpassed the quality often found in a home rental.

Any problem that arose was quickly remedied by the very responsive owner and his team of assistants. We were very satisfied with the immediate attention and response to our very minor glitches.

If you are looking for a peaceful and picturesque visit to Lake Champlain, this home will provide just that. The home is close to the ferry to Burlington which makes it convenient for a day trip over to Vermont. It is a quiet area and not many restaurants or stores in close proximity but if you are looking to remove yourself from a hectic life style, this is the perfect place.
