Wake up to shimmering Lake Champlain in Burlington Vermont!
The Eastman house is a magnificent post and beam architectural gem, spectacular in the winter. It boasts cathedral ceilings in the dining area and the master suite, a wonderful gas fireplace and radiant heat. The entire house has large southern facing windows overlooking the lake/Shelburne Bay. A large walk out patio leads to a screened gazebo and to a fenced in lawn that butts against the lake shore. It has a modern kitchen stocked with everything you would need and an attached garage.
The master suite is loft style with a full bathroom, queen bed and a daybed. There is a downstairs bedroom with a queen bed next to a full bath and a den that is easily converted into a third bedroom. (Please note: not everyone gets great cell service here, but there is a land line you are free to use for all outgoing and incoming calls.)
Our house is in a quiet neighborhood and the neighbors are quite close. Parks and walking trails are within walking distance. There is access to a private neighborhood beach. The bike path is two blocks away. The shops and restaurants of Burlington are a 15 minute bicycle ride, 5-10 minute drive, and a 45 minute walk. It is also a short drive to I89 and Rte 7 for easy access to other places in Vermont.
Met with Brooke at our arrival - very nice guy who gave us a quick tour and then got out of the way for us to take over. The house was amazing! Everything was clean, organized and functional. We loved the fireplace and radiant heating. The lake was frozen so we got to skate around on it even though it was bumpy and we were nearly blown over by the wind that day. Fun stuff.
Great time for the 6 of us! Absolutely no complaints. Would stay again! Thank you!
Brooke and Alissa have a beautiful home! We were able to visit with friends we haven't seen in 15 years. The kitchen was well equipped, the rooms were comfortable and the setting was so pretty we rarely ventured out. We had a delightful time just sitting in the living room with a fire lit, reminiscing and catching up.
Lovely house and lovely hospitality. Recommend for any season!
What a beautiful home and a great place to spend a holiday weekend while visiting VT. The home is stunning, as are the views of Lake Champlain. The hosts were gracious enough to leave some goodies in the fridge, lots of clean towels and a binder of suggestions for the area. The home was clean, the lay-out bright and spacious, and it felt like home-away-from-home in every sense of the word. The kitchen was well-supplies with cooking utensils and such, so we were able to cook a delicious birthday dinner for my husband instead of going out. The fireplace in the living room was the coziest gathering place in the house, and spent much of our time there, visiting with our friends. For those who care about these things: the water pressure in the showers was outstanding! :) We were also glad to be able to use the washing machine/dryer to do weekend laundry. The hosts were in touch with us, available for questions during the booking process and gave us plenty of time to arrive and leave. We would absolutely book their home again, and can't say enough about what a great experience we had. Oh! And right before we left we saw an American Bald Eagle in the yard! Within 20 feet of the house, in a tree. It was the perfect ending to a perfect weekend!
Brooke and Alissa's house is lovely. The kitchen is fully stocked and the view on the lake is stunning. The house has everything you need to have a comfortable stay, from towels to a great indoor fireplace. However, the open loft layout which is awesome during the day becomes a problem at night if people go to bed at different times; sound travels too well.
What a beautiful and luxurious house. Amazing spot in front of the lake and close to the bike route. Brooke And Alissa were the best hosts.
What an amazing house! We had a great time at Brooke and Alissa's place. Alissa was very responsive to our pre-visit emails and walked us through the house when we arrived. The house is a wonderfully designed timber frame with radiant floor heating, elegant and comfortable furnishings, great artwork and has a view of Lake Champlain. We also enjoyed walking around the neighborhood, our daughter really liked going to the giant treehouse at nearby Oakledge Park. I would highly recommend this place to anyone seeking a high class get away and I hope to get back there with my family again sometime soon.
Very nice. close to Burlington and highway. My two sisters stayed upstairs and shared a bed. One brother stayed upstairs in his own room. My father had his own room on the ground floor. I slept in the tv room on a pullout couch and my other brother slept on a blowup mattress. All were comfortable. Neighbors are close but friendly. beach area a very short walk. pretty views. kitchen area perfect just needs a few more pots and pans if you want to do large dinners which we did...Large table in living room was perfect and extended out. Some of us had a problem with our cell phones but once you located the right place , they worked fine. internet I could not connect to and I didn't bother to call owner for help. home phone was a help since cells did not always work. House was very clean and pretty much beautiful. I suggested shades and or curtains since the windows are everywhere and the neighbors on one side was pretty close and my sisters like to walk around in their pajamas....Overall rate excellent.
What a beautiful home in a lovely location! Alissa met us (even though it was late when we arrived) and gave us a tour of the house. She told us of an event going on downtown that we knew about but if we hadn't it would have been a great tip.
The house was quiet, comfortable and nicely furnished; there was nothing we lacked. We carried our kayaks down to the neighborhood beach and discovered just how close to downtown we were. This is a prime location for activities in downtown Burlington.
We wished we could have launched our kayaks right from the yard but that was a bit tricky with the stone wall. But the neighborhood beach is just three houses away. The bike path is literally right in the neighborhood and it is just a 2.5 mile ride into downtown.
This is a home that is well worth staying at!
We had such a lovely experience here! The house was a dream, with a lovely view of Lake Champlain and within minutes of all the fun things to do in Burlington. Our hosts went above and beyond by providing extras like a welcome bottle of wine and snacks (so appreciated by the travel weary) and coffee for the morning so we didn't have to run to the grocery store on our first night. All of the amenities of the house were luxurious (down to the bedding and shampoo) for an exceptional vacation experience. This was an excellent value for the money and we're already planning return trips. I highly recommend this house for your vacation. We had 5 adults (no children), and would have been comfortable with 6.
