Description from the owner
When you stay at our lakefront home located on a rural dead end road, you will return to a quieter time of tranquility, privacy, and peace. It is a place you can rock on the deck or the lawns and gaze at the lake's never ending beauty, hear the loons, and enjoy the sunset over the lake's islands and the
Adirondacks beyond. Or you can swim in the crystal clear water or just sit on the beach. If you want to be more active you can fish off the shore or from the canoe or kayak which come with
the cottage. Or you can hike up the trails on Eagle Mountain and view the incredible beauty all around. Or just go for a long walk or bike or...Read more

Additional Location Information
The cottage is located on Lake Champlain near the end of a rural dead end road,with little traffic.
The cottage is located on Cold Spring Road, in Milton at the base of Eagle Mountain which is the highest point immediately adjacent to Lake Champlain. Most of Eagle Mountain and the surrounding lakeshore is preserved by the Lake Champlain Land Trust. The cottage is on the
eastern shore of the lake halfway between Burlington and St Albans and overlooking the Lake Champlain Islands.
When you visit our private lakefront home you can enjoy a quintessential Vermont lake vacation. You can choose to enjoy a quiet time of tranquility,
privacy, and peace. If you choose to be more active, this is the perfect place to bike, hike, canoe, kayak, swim and fish. And then
there are the rest of the Vermont to explore!
The vacation home is located directly on the shore of Lake Champlain looking west over small islands and "Grand Isle", the largest island
in Lake Champlain Islands. The home faces west towards the summer sunsets. The vacation home is about a 30 minute drive from
Burlington and from St Albans. It is a ten minute drive from the "Sandbar" which is the connection of the Lake Champlain Islands to the eastern
shore of Vermont.
It is located on a wooded lot on a bluff above the lake. While there are homes on either side, they are spaced well apart and the hedges,
woods and distance make the home very private. The beach is accessed by about 20 steps down to the lake shore which is small pebbles.
The water is clean and crystal clear.
The most recommended activity is to do nothing. Or almost nothing.
Relax. Wind down. Nap. Read. Do a jigsaw puzzle. Watch the sunset. Putter around. There is a TV/DVD combo if you do need some electronic entertainment but there is no TV reception but there is an internet connection.
If you want to be more active. Walk the long, long private road or miles of connected dirt roads. Hike the trail from the property up Eagle Mountian and enjoy sweeping views of the lake, islands and mountians. Swim. Fish. Bike. Go for a boat ride. Build a fire on the beach and roast marshmallows.
But if you want to leave the camp and the Lake (and you may not) --
It is 20 miles and 30 minutes to Downtown Burlington
It's about the same to the charming town of St Albans
In 45 minutes you could visit the world renowned Shelburne Museum
and Shelburne Farms or the nearby Teddy Bear Factory.
In less than an hour you can be at the Ben and Jerry's factory or
travel 15 minutes more and be in Stowe. In an hour you could participate in the Summer activities at Smuggler's Notch.
Or in 90 minutes you could be in downtown Montreal.
There's lots to do if you wish to leave the camp but you may not want to.
