We loved the rustic feel of Vancies, with the updated amenities you'd hope for on a vacation.
Window a/c units worked great when needed, the kitchen was fully stocked with supplies, and the washer and dryer were a life saver after a week on the water.
The pipes moaned a little when we first arrived, but it had passed within 48 hours. Similarly, every time a storm rolled in over the lake, it was gone within 30 minutes. We were on and off the water a lot, but the time on was glorious, and the time off was relaxing - watching a storm over lake Champlain from a glorious covered porch is very enjoyable.

The cabin had plenty of space for the 4 of us, although the bunk bed room is definitely better for singles and children than couples.

If you're looking to disconnect from technology, reconnect to nature, and read a good book on a comfy chair, you'l love this place.

We are former Vermonters that have stayed in many camps/homes along Lake Champlain. This is easily one of the best we have ever been to. The camp itself is exactly what you'd expect in a camp - some bugs, small kitchen and not the greatest water pressure. However, there is so much to like about the outside of the camp, that it would be hard to feel anything but lucky that you found this place. It's private around you, the area is perfect for swimming, the views are incredible, the rocks are easy to walk on and the grass along the water is perfect for playing lawn games and socializing. It's really ideal. Unless you desire a home that is more modern and can hold a larger amount of people, don't pass this place up. You won't be disappointed.

We had a magical experience here with our 6-year-old daughter: skipping stones (5 jumps!) off the rocks, gooey twilight s’mores, tennis practice in the breezy mornings, purple-pink-orange sunsets at night, grilling farm fresh & lakeside, plein air puzzles on the balcony, scent of wild thyme in the yard, snap of the flag ropes and smash of the tides, shells stones & flowers, white bright moon and stars!!!! Love love and more love.

Spectacular location.

Booked this home for a girls weekend/bachelorette weekend and we were SO happy. The grounds were even more beautiful than we imagined. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. The home was clean and just what we needed. Waking up every morning to that stunning view was incredible. I will definitely bring my family here for a summer getaway!

This place was exactly what my husband and I wanted. Our goal was to get some R&R and that wish was fulfiled. We enjoyed grilling while watching the sunset. The tennis court was a great bonus. It was great having air conditioning but because the walls didn't have any insulantion it couldn't keep the rooms cool in the afternoon. But we opened all the windows and had a nice breeze. I have fibromyalgia and so the comfort of the bed is very important to us. I cannot complaint. The bed was very comfortable. The location was fantastic and we highly recommend this home. We would definately come back.

This is a great private spot with beautiful mountain views! My daughter and I hated to leave! Hope to be back next year!

Very good place to rent if looking for that Adirondacks cottage feel. (Although I understand that Vt./Grand Isle is not officially part of the ADKs.) Well appointed and rustic at the same time. More local information regarding nearby stores, restaurants, etc. would be helpful and may soon be provided. Highly recommend.
