Family-friendly lakefront home with private beach and firepit - dogs welcome!

Escape to the bay with this charming home. From the moment you step inside, you can enjoy views of Lake Champlain out the windows of the kitchen and dining room. The view's even better from the main bedroom, set on its own split level! The other bedrooms are on the opposite side of the home, making the space ideal for large families or groups with a fair amount of younger guests. But everyone (including up to two dogs!) can come together in the game room or around the portable firepit. The private gas grill can cook up enough fish to feed everyone. But when it's time to explore the lake, you can do it in style at this home. Seven beach chairs can be used on the private beach - we also provide one kayak, one canoe, a floating water blanket, and four adult-size life jackets for guest use. The private washer/dryer will take care of the swimsuits while folks are making s'mores around the fire. If the adults want to head out on their own special date, the two provided adult bikes will help provide a sweet escape.

What's nearby:
Yes, the lake is as close as it looks! If you're looking to get farther out on the water, guests can use the public boat launch at Malletts Bay Fish & Wildlife Access Area just under one mile away. This is only one of seven marinas within two miles of the home. Rozzi's Lakeshore Tavern (just under one mile from the home) will provide a nice retreat for the adult members of the group. But before you leave, be sure to check out the Lake Champlain Chocolate factory (yes, they do take-out) and the world's tallest filing cabinet, both within nine miles of the home.

Things to know:

Great place. Great views.

Had a wonderful weekend with the family. The property is lovely. The decor is very tasteful, the location is private and quiet, the beach is beautiful. The only caveat is that there are a lot of stairs. If I was traveling with a child under 5 I would probably be very nervous. Likewise, if I had an older family member with me or anyone who has mobility issues.

The property is managed by Vacasa, which we were very pleased with. They provide everything: towels, sheets, laundry soap, dishes, dish cleaner, bug spray, TP, paper towels, etc., basically everything except the wood for the fire! You could literally just show up and instacart the groceries you need. Our only complaint is that the maid service was not 100% - there was trash that was not taken out, dirty dishes in the dishwasher, and towels in the washer that were clean, but still wet. Otherwise the house was as expected and clean.

Overall, we LOVED this home and are already planning to go back.

Everything about this place is perfect! The location and view are absolutely breathtaking and the house itself is gorgeous. We had an amazing trip, I would recommend this place to anyone.
