No smoking in the house.
Great Lake house off the beaten path. The house was equipped with everything we needed. We spent plenty of time with the grill and on the lake, using the kayak, canoe, and boat.
Lovely and peaceful setting. If you're looking to get away from it all, this is the place.
Great camp for fishing, kayaking, canoeing with family. Rustic but comfortable. Had a technical issue while there and Nick was very responsive and helped with a solution. My niece stated it "had everything and she wanted to live there"! Quite, relaxing, beautiful. Highly recommend.
Great, relaxing place in beautiful countryside - just what we were looking for. The cabin is basic but functional and had everything we needed. Our kids (6 & 3) had a great time running around the yard, going out on the lake in the boats, and playing with the toys and puzzles inside. The toilet was giving us a bit of trouble but Nick was responsive and fair on this issue.
Staying at Nick's camp is almost like joining Nick's family; you get a sense of the joy that his own family has in staying at the camp. Our experience found it perfectly suited to not really going too far away from the "home base." Sit on the porch and watch the birds, throw on the running shoes and head over to the loop path less than a mile away, chuck the oars in the rowboat and see what you find in the swamp... We were there before the season really kicked in, so I cannot comment on how "busy" the neighborhood gets, but in May it was lovely and quiet. There's a general store a short drive from the camp, and the closest supermarket is ten to fifteen minute's drive. Nick's price is very very reasonable for the accommodations, space and opportunities.
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!

About the Host, Nick
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.
