This cabin has everything you need for a pleasant stay, and the location is great. The kitchen was well-appointed, the internet and cable are excellent, and the new propane stove works nicely for fall weather. We had a group of five and there was plenty of seating, bed space, linens, etc.
Structurally, it is a basic cabin, and one thing to be aware of is there is not a lot of privacy. You can see into one bedroom from the other, and sound travels throughout the whole house due to openings at the tops of walls. This was not a big issue for us, just something to keep in mind.
We weren't able to take advantage of the fire pit due to weather, but it looked like a great spot to hang out. I kayaked around a little and we took a nice 4-mile run looping around the lake.
The location was pretty convenient. Arriving from upstate NY in the evening, it was nice to have it so close to the Crown Point Bridge. The nearby town of Vergennes is cute. We had a great breakfast at the Three Squares Cafe there. While it is about a 40-minute drive to Burlington, the roads are quite scenic and it goes by quickly.
Nick is very responsive and friendly, and he made sure we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. We felt that we received good value and we had a great time with our friends. I would gladly stay here again.
Thanks for your feedback John. I did change the description to be a one bedroom so that there is not the misperception that it is 2 private bedrooms. Also, I will be adding a curtain divider in the doorway between the two bedrooms.
Also, you are right about the noise travelling easily thru-out the cabin, this is necessary so that the heat can travel from the stove to the rest of the cabin.
I stayed at Nick's cabin for 4 days as part of my honeymoon. Nick was incredibly accommodating, had VERY quick responses to my emails and texts, and everything was as advertised.
The cabin is rustic and lovely. The lake was gorgeous and peaceful. We used the grill, had a campfire, and enjoyed visiting nearby orchards and towns. Per Nick's recommendation, we went to Boyer's Orchard and agree it's a must-visit. The apple cider donuts were amazing.
The cabin is easy to locate, close to area attractions, including Burlington, and a great place to stay. I highly recommend this to anyone and would absolutely stay there again.
We are missing this place so much already after having spent the weekend here! The view is simply heaven. The location is close enough to Burlington, Shelburne, and Camels Hump mountain where we hiked. And nothing beats a two minute morning drive for donuts... homemade from Boyer's Orchard! This place is absolutely a must-experience. And Nick was extremely easy to deal with. No hassle, just relaxation in Northern Vermont! What else could you ask for!?
The cabin is rustic and lovely and we made good use of the kayak and canoes. Nick was a wonderful host who picked us up at the train station on a Friday night and drove us to our rental car location. He was also extremely responsive and helpful whenever we had a question about the cabin. The tv and high speed internet at the cabin were also top notch and we grilled many hot dogs and hamburgers on the gas grill. I recommend Nick and his lovely cabin without reservation.
The photo's don't do it justice. I was really happy when my parents and I showed up at the camp. The house was perfect for what we needed. Clean and quiet on a beautiful little pond. It was a scenic 30 min drive to Burlington and about 20 mins to Middlebury. Nick was available with any questions we had, great host, easy going. I would stay here again if I ever return to the Burlington area.
Nick was a great host! He was very responsive and considerate. The house was exactly as expected, with room for everyone in a relaxing space. Being right on the water with a choice of kayak, canoe and another boat was a huge plus. And having both a gas and charcoal grill was also great. Location is perfect, with both Middlebury and Burlington an easy drive away. The lake was quiet and very relaxing. We had a terrific break!
The lakefront camp was amazing! The scenery is beautiful and the camp is simple but has everything you need. We especially enjoyed taking the boats out on the lake, building fires, and relaxing on the screened porch. The kitchen is well equipped with all of the dishes, pots, etc you need and has basic spices available. It is also perfect for people seeking pet friendly accommodations.
Nick was an excellent host and always responded quickly. Highly recommended! I hope to go back.
It was a great place to be. A good equipment for a nice house in the nature. After the city of New York some days with the lake, the birds, swimming and doing nothing, just looking at the lake.
This is a really great spot on a lovely lake in Vermont. The cabin itself is equipped with everything you need- lots of cooking utensils, bbq, inside area to sit as well as a large porch area overlooking the lake. The best thing about the place is the setting, which is right on a very pretty lake in a quiet area, where you can swim, canoe, kayak... and a big bonus was the cabin having a canoe boat for guests to use.The surrounding areas make for some amazing drives and there are plenty of other great lakes and spots to explore close by. Nick was really friendly and helpful and made us feel right at home with some thoughtful touches.
When we drove into Monkton, we saw double rainbows and were bowled over by the incredible beauty of this little corner of Vermont.
We loved the little salmon colored camp cabin. As pictured, it fronts Cedar Lake and we enjoyed having the boats right there to go kayaking or rowing or canoing. The cabin is kitted out with everything. Kitchen items were plentiful, so my husband cooked up some great meals (also using the propane grill). A grocery store in nearby Hinesburg had a good selection of wines and food. Only thing is: kitchen needs a better knife for chopping!
The bedrooms were, as one guest said, not very private, with walls that do not go up to the ceiling in one and a sheerish cloth curtain between the two rooms. That said, there were lots of options for our teen boy and girl. Our son took our sleeping bag and extra blankets and slept out on the porch until our last night, which was really chilly (then he slept on futon right in front of the wood stove--lucky boy). Our daughter slept in a bunk in the room w/ four beds. We slept in the double bed.
It was all really cozy and in addition to the wonders of the outdoors (and a rope swing, too), we had wi-fi and Netflix, Hulu, etc. via blue ray, so that was great for my kids.
The only suggestion I'd make is to do something about lighting. I know it's hard to wire these types of cabins, but I would have liked a lamp in bedroom, to read in bed. We were constantly moving the two lamps from place to place. We liked to eat on the porch table, but there was no porch light, just light from the kitchen. So that's my one suggestion. Might want to bring night lights to read by or light up Nooks or Kindles!
Nick was wonderful to deal with. Very laid back and accomodating. Our family would definitely come back!
