    We came as a family of four. The area is beautiful. The view from the cottage is breathtaking. The cottage is very clean. all renovated. You can find everything you need in it. You can go buy what you need at the Harborside market and make a great barbecue for the family. The owner always available for any question . We brought with us 2 small dinghies that we were able to put to the water at the New England Powerboat marina 2 miles from here. Very nice people there. Wonderful place for sailing. We are already planing our next stay here. We had a GREAT stay. Wonderfull place to be with the family away from the city. 28 August 2016 - 13:05:00

    This lake front cottage is well maintained and the kitchen is well equipped with all the utensils you need. It is located near several state parks and is a 45 min drive from Burlington and Montreal. We had a wonderful stay here and have no complaints. 22 August 2016 - 00:48:00

    We had a wonderful stay. The cottage is appointed very well and is newly renovated which made it feel like these owners took pride in what they wanted people to stay in when visiting Vermont. The location to Canada is great, easy to spend a day in Montreal. The area is very rural and not much happening which is what we wanted in a vacation. It is a great lake if you are a boating type and if you like to bike. We did not see many people kayaking so never got around to that and did not have bikes so we mainly walked to the neighborhood Sand Dunes, daily. We liked being able to make most of our meals at the cottage and enjoyed seeing Lake Champlain every day. We did have a yummy dinner at the North Hero Inn and the Island ice cream is to die for!!!!The cottage does not have any shade trees surrounding the area which was the only down side of being outside in the front area BUT the sunroom area took care of that problem. We also lucked out on weather not too warm and the nights were cool, because there is no air conditioner. For us, the fans at night were perfect and in the day we opened windows as needed. So all in all, we thank David and Lucy for letting us use their lovely cottage and giving us the opportunity to get to know an area that is so beautiful , restful and peaceful, making our vacation just as we hoped it would be. 01 August 2016 - 12:43:00

    Our stay at the cottage on Lake Champlain was just perfect. The accommodations were more than anyone could ask for. All necessities were fully stocked, very clean and new appliances. The beds were super comfortable, and their was just the right amount of room for the four of us. The view from the sun room was amazing. We had spectacular sunsets every evening and the stars just seemed so much brighter up there! There's a deck going down to the water just steps away from the cottage with a little beach area and quite a long shoreline for exploring. There's Sand Dunes State Park just up the road from the cabin. We were surprised at how quiet the road was there, not much traffic at all and it was very peaceful sleeping at night. We kept the windows open in our bedroom so we could listen to the waves and smell the lake air! One day we took a trip over to Plattsburgh to the mall there and had dinner and stopped at this awesome creemee stand on the way back. It was only about a 25 minute drive away. So if you get tired of the peace and quiet, there's lots of stuff to do not far away! The transactions with booking the cottage, communications with all the questions I had about stuff was super stress free and they always got right back to us with answers. We have shared our experience on Facebook (took pictures that week and shared) and will spread the word about how great Home Away is to use for your next vacation. Prices are reasonable and service is great! Thank you David and Lucy at Home Away for making this stay such a pleasant one! 05 June 2016 - 12:14:00

    We enjoyed our stay. Pros: clean, convenient to sand dunes/beach, Canada, nice views for sun rise/set and NY. Cons: No A/C unit which results in sweaty floors during the peak of the day, and no water access. Owners were pleasant and responded quickly. 25 June 2017 - 20:22:00

    Wow!! What an amazing cottage. Very roomy and comfortable. All you need is clothes and activities. Extremely clean. Great to spend time there or as a home base while you fish, hike, boat, swim and go on day trips to the many amazing areas in Vermont and New York. Comfortable beds and great shower. Can't say enough about the cottage or the very kind and knowledgeable owners. Had the pleasure of staying for 6 nights and it was worth EVERY penny spent. Looking forward to making this our permanent home away from home for vacations to the area. 18 June 2017 - 20:24:00

    We spent a week in Isle View cottage #7 and had a great time. The cottage was ideal for us. There was not one complaint to be found. We had a real vacation without dragging suitcases in and out every night. The kitchen left nothing to be desired it was well stocked and the spices were wonderful. There were only two of us so I cant speak for the twin beds but the queen bed was very comfortable, as were the wicker furnishings. The view overlooking the lake was just beautiful. We would book again in a heart beat, cant say enough for the area, or the owners this would get five stars in the travel logs. The Troys 02 November 2017 - 16:26:00

    We ended up staying on one of the coldest weekends of the year and yet it was warm and cozy. The decor is absolutely spectacular and fully furnished. We spent most of our time sitting in the front living room watching the fisherman all over the lake. This spot is one of the best fishing areas on lake Champlain and it did not disappoint. From perch to lake trout this place has them all. The sunsets are to die for and the lake is just a skip and a jump away. I highly recommend this spot to anyone seeking a relaxing weekend or just a great fishing spot. The owner is very helpful and was ready to answer any questions I had. We will definitely stay here again, thank you for one of the best weekends we have ever had!!!! 18 February 2016 - 19:24:26

    We stayed at this great cottage for three days in September. We were really lucky because the weather was just perfect. The cottage is well maintained and renewed and provides basically all required facilities, the only point of improvement could be a washing machine. Other then that everything is there. The location is really good, quiet on the lake and perfect for enjoying good weather and views and especially the spectacular sunsets. We enjoyed the BBQ as well, there is enough space in the back to sit and relax and eat! The area is perfect for several activities such as hiking in the nearby state park, water activities on the lake, visiting/touring the Lake Champlain area and visiting Burlington or Montreal. It was a perfect location to get to know the area. Thank you David for all good services and working smoothly with us! 18 October 2016 - 15:49:39

    We recently stayed here for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The lake is literally steps away with a beautiful slate beach you can get to not much further down the road. It was much closer than it looked in pictures. A sandy beach at Alburgh Dunes State Park (a short drive or bike ride away--you could also walk but I had too much gear) is perfect for spending the day with kids too. Very relaxing and not too crowded. The cottage was extremely clean and bed was very comfortable, nice sheets and blankets. Also, the Wifi was very fast (my husband needed for checking in with work since we were gone two weeks) which was great. We enjoyed a few dvd movies provided on rainy days too! If rental had a washer/dryer we could stay the whole summer. The owners have some nice plantings out front as well, it makes for a nice time outside. My daughter loved running around barefoot in the lush grass with our dog. We had fun exploring Burlington, Stowe and St Albans. All nice short scenic drives from Alburgh. Don't miss Hero's Welcome General Store--great sandwiches and fun shopping very close by. The ice cream at AB store was also good! Both were suggested in the very informative rental book. All in all a nice stay! Thank you. 27 August 2017 - 12:41:00

    Clean, modern and quiet. The layout makes it feel much bigger than it is. Fully equipped, all that was needed was food and clothes. Much closer to the lake than expected, photos don't show the beautiful views and sunsets. Well worth the money. 11 May 2017 - 20:20:00

    With a stunning view of the lake, the area around this home is silent at night, giving me an opportunity for peaceful healing and meditation. It is just a 1 mile walk or ride down the road to Alburgh Dunes State Park, where you can swim and enjoy the lake. The roads are relatively flat with generally wide shoulders and optimal for bike riding.There are many state parks within a 20 mile distance, and many things to do. David and Lucy, the homeowners, were easily available and welcoming to me. I recommend this vacation home highly. 08 July 2017 - 20:21:00

    A week on beautiful Lake Champlain with the family was just what we all needed. Our children loved fishing off the dock and even caught a 1.5 foot wide-mouthed bass. The Alburgh Sand Dunes are within walking distance, just down the road. It's a great place to swim! The house comes with a well equipped kitchen, the most comfortable beds and bedding (Ralph Lauren pillows!), and a newly renovated bathroom. We loved every minute that we spent on our vacation. Thank you so much!! 09 August 2017 - 02:32:00
  17. This cottage was well stocked, clean and spacious. David, the owner, gave us great advice to visit the Fromagerie just over the border to pick up some incredible cheeses. The bed was comfortable, the WiFi signal was strong, and the local shops and restaurants were very good. Also, the sunsets were outstanding. 23 September 2017 - 00:00:00

    This is a very clean comfortable home. So nice to sit on the porch and watch the sunsets. Very quite and relaxing. Fully equipped kitchen making it easy to cook and eat meals in. Slept so good on extremely comfortable bed ( I want that bed in my home). The house heater keeps the house very warm. Great rental I would surely recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation. I wish I could have stayed longer, I did not want to leave. 14 October 2017 - 21:09:00

    Had a wonderful time there with my family. Place was clean. Small, but cozy and had everything we needed for a mini-getaway. Location was peaceful. We really appreciated leaving some items in the fridge, as many of the stores in the area were closed in the evening (we traveled during off-season). Would definitely recommend it! 08 November 2017 - 18:16:00
