We have 1 bedroom, a sleeping loft, kitchen, bathroom & living space. If you cycle, fish, kayak, have a boat, hike, scuba dive, study American history (Revolutionary War forts & shipwrecks), study birds, or want to look for the elusive lake creature Champ, our house is your base. Fresh cherries, strawberries, and apples are available within a mile during the season. Middlebury College is 12.7 miles away. Or just stay here, use the grill, kayak, relax and watch the sun set over the lake.
This cottage is set on 10 secluded acres on the shore of Lake Champlain in Shoreham, Vermont. It is set in the middle of apple orchards and farmland. There is a path through the woods down to the lake and several boat put ins nearby. The ferry to New York and Fort Ticonderoga is about 2 miles away. Sitting in the backyard, you can look out on the lake and the Adirondacks, the Green Mountains are behind you. 3 kayaks are available to use on the lake.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
We do not live in the area but can answer any questions by phone.
- While pets are allowed, please let me know if you're bringing one.
Cats (even though I love them and have one myself), don't really make good visitors, so please, no cats.
- Trash must be taken out on the last day, dishes done, and windows closed and locked, lights turned off. If anything has been spilled on blankets, couch, etc., please try to clean it so that the stain doesn't set (like you would in your own home). A cleaning fee of $100 will be charged if these rules aren't followed.
- There are 3 kayaks available for use but guests must be able to swim. Guests who want to use the kayaks are required to read and sign the form left on the living area desk and leave for us.
- There is a small tv and dvd player. Only local channels are available, as this is a retreat and we hope that you spend most of your time outdoors.
- Primary guest responsible for payment must be at least 21 years of age.
