We really enjoyed our stay at the lakefront camp. Everything was ship-shape and the setting is lovely. Nick was readily accessible via text and email, for example helping us get the wireless password. The camp is one of several cabins right along the lake, but the others were mostly unoccupied while we were there, probably because it was late in the season. We were in Vermont for a family wedding which didn't leave as much time as I would have liked to hang out by the lake. This is a very relaxing place and I would definitely stay there again.
The cabin was just as described in the listing and we all had a wonderful time! Nick was very helpful with the logistics, and we felt right at home when we arrived. We were attending a friend's wedding in Burlington and this was the perfect place for us to stay. With all of the the festivities we only wished we'd had a bit more down time to enjoy the lake!
The camp is splendid. We woke up to a magnificent lake view each day. The place offers a quiet place to relax. This is not a place for high maintenance travelers. It is a rustic summer cottage that is very private-good amenities, but rough around the edges. We came for a wedding nearby- and it was a perfect place for us to stay. I wanted to enjoy the lake more, but it was a bit chilly for kayaking.
Exactly what we expected. The cabin was cozy and well equipped and we loved hanging out on the screened porch in the evenings. A good starting off point for day trips. Bristol was nice for shopping and we LOVED Bristol Falls. The boys made some leaps from the ledges into the pool below. Scared the Momma, but they said that it was totally worth it! We spent most of our time paddling around the lake and trying to sneak up on the geese (no luck). A great find and we hope to come back.
Nick was great to deal with . I had several communications with him after I reserved his cabin due to emergency family situation that was going on.
The cabin was exactly as pictured and described. It reminded me of being at sleepover camp when I was a kid. bunk beds, sort of cubbies for clothes, only we had a full kitchen, TV set with HBO and Wi-fi.
We would sit on the porch for hours and read and just look out at the lake. It is so beautiful and calming.
We went on daily hikes to various state parks . At Button Bay state Park you can walk to Lake Champlain which is incredible.
We mostly cooked in but had a couple of great dinners out particularly at Starry Night Cafe which is not a cafe but a fabulous restaurant with great attention to detail; food, flowers , artwork, service. I wish that it was in DC where we live.
Nick was great about communicating with us. He responded right away to inquiries and called us during our visit to make sure that we had everything we needed.
The cabin was just as it appears in the photos. It was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen had a good stove and plenty of pans and utensils. Although the neighboring cabins are very close, it was nice and quiet. We enjoyed paddling around in the canoe.
This was a good spot for our party of two adults and two kids. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxed country vacation in Vermont.
I'm so happy we stumbled upon Nick's place. It's located in a small, serene cabin community on a beautiful lake; we spent four nights there--each night we took the boat out for a spin. The screened in porch was peaceful that we actually spent most nights sleeping out there.
The place itself is very clean, he clearly cognizant of the small things one can do to spruce up a place like washing the bathmats and cleaning the fridge.
Nick's place is also very well stocked with everything you may have forgotten to bring on a road trip, making cooking at home (on the road) very easy! There's a nice little town nearby with a grocer called Lantmans and a great restaurant called The Public House that I recommend you check out. The cabin is also a quick drive a way from Mt. Philo State Park, which offers an easy hike to an amazing lookout and picnic area.
Although the cabin really has everything you could ask for (stove, shower, TV, wifi, etc), I will say it's a bit more rustic than it appears. The walls are pretty thin and it can be a bit buggy for those sensitive to it.
However, I'll absolutely be back! Nick was a wonderful host--he checked in to make sure everything was alright--and his place was amazing.

I have 3 kids under the age of 6 and am a mid-level manager for a local financial services company. I live 35 minutes away from this property where I like to spend some quality time with my family. We typically make it out on weekends to this camp in summer and occasionally in winter to ice fish and ice skate. If you have questions please feel free to reach out to me.
