Spend a summer on the shores of Lake Champlain at this three-bedroom North Hero cottage, an updated lakefront escape with a spectacular location, a private deck, and direct access to a sandy beach for swimming, kayaking, and canoeing.
Perched on the northern edge of Allens Bay in the tranquil Lake Champlain Islands, this single-level cottage sits four miles north of the town center of North Hero. You'll be mere steps (across a sand and gravel road) from the lakeshore, 38 miles north of downtown Burlington, and 60 miles south of charming Montreal.
A masterful blend of modern updates and classic Vermont character, the interior living space is cozy, welcoming, and comfortable for the entire family. Turn on the ceiling fan to circulate the summer breeze, admire the beautiful wood details on the walls and floors, and take a seat in front of the gas-powered fireplace to read a novel, set up a board game, or catch up with your loved ones.
Begin each morning in the country kitchen, where you can grind your own coffee beans, mix up some homemade pancake batter, and read the sports section at the two-person breakfast bar. Set out a platter of pancakes, a bowl of fresh fruit, and a bottle of local maple syrup, and sit down for breakfast at the farm table for six.
Leave the plates in the dishwasher as you head outside for the day, basking in the sunshine on the private deck. Bring your kayak across the road for a morning paddle in Lake Champlain, take a refreshing dip in the cool lake waters, or watch your kids play tag and splash happily on the sun-splashed beach.
Take the setting sun as your cue to light the gas grill, set the patio table, and sit down for an al fresco meal overlooking the lake. Gather around the firepit on the beach for after-dinner s'mores, use the provided WiFi to plan the next day's adventures, and retreat to the plush sofas in the living room for a night of DVDs and cable shows on the large flatscreen TV.
With three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, this secluded lakefront cottage will accommodate as many as six guests. Retreat to the master suite each evening to find a queen-size bed, soft carpeting, and a light-filled private bathroom with a luxurious jetted tub with a shower head. The two guest rooms are full of casual charm, each offering a twin-over-full bunk bed.
Whether you're a first-time visitor to Vermont or frequent this scenic pocket of New England, you'll fall in love with the charm of North Hero. When you're not swimming, sunbathing, and canoeing just outside your cottage, you can head two miles north to find mallards, chain pickerel, northern pike, nesting map turtles, and a stop on the Lake Champlain Paddlers' Trail at the 399-acre North Hero State Park.
You'll be just five miles east of the expansive sand beach at Alburg Dunes State Park, and 16 miles north of the boat ramp, sports courts, nature center, and 4,150-foot shoreline at Grand Isle State Park. You'll even be within a short drive of downtown Burlington and its bustling markets, restaurants, theaters, and gorgeous frontage on Lake Champlain.
