Delightful Waterfront Escape W/ Three Kayaks, Free WiFi, Beach Access & More!

Make yourself right at home on the sweet sand and clear water of Allens Bay and relax in style here at Bayfront Beaut! With three kayaks for guest use, beach access right outside, and ample outdoor seating, you will have no lack of ways to soak up some sunshine and spend all day in the fresh air. Any downtime spent indoors will be just as fun, as the interior of this getaway is absolutely stunning with natural light flooding through expansive windows, vaulted ceilings, natural wood accents, and modern furnishings that will please even the most design-oriented of guests. The layout of the main floor is also great for entertaining, as the full kitchen, living area, and dining room are all seamlessly connected to allow for easy entertaining and mingling each evening. When the stars come out, the flatscreen TV in the living room and plush sofa will be great for movie nights, yet those that want to hit the hay early can also head upstairs, as two bedrooms are on the second floor away from all of the action.

Leanne K. Jul 2022
My husband and I and our 2 kids (age 9 and 12) stayed there in July 2022 for 5 nights. The location is amazing - despite the fact that there is a road between the house and beach, the road is actually a 10 mph road and there is barely any traffic. Everyone we encountered was so friendly - lots of people and dogs. It's very quiet and peaceful, despite it being summer, there were not a ton of boats, jet ski's, etc like on most lakes. We took the 3 kayaks out multiple times, and the kids enjoyed playing in the water every day. The kitchen had everything we needed for making meals, and the furniture in the house was very comfortable and cozy. We ventured out multiple times to Stowe, Burlington, Ben and Jerry's, Teddy Bear Factory, St Albans, and enjoyed multiple trips to Hero's Welcome and Seb's in South Hero. I started every morning down by the lake with my coffee, and the same in the evenings with my wine. It was truly an amazing trip and we would definitely return to this property.

There were some "quirks" regarding the house. As others have mentioned, there is a definite slant, so much that if you don't use the doorstopper on the bathroom or upstairs bedroom doors, they won't stay open. The slant didn't bother me, but it was noticeable.
The water was cloudy and a little smelly, no big deal, just be sure to bring some gallons of water.
When we turned on the hot water, there would be a gurgling sound, then the water would shoot out, especially in the bathroom where it would shoot out 6 feet and spray us every time. Again, we got a laugh and the kids enjoyed pranking each other with it.
The dishwasher didn't clean the dishes so we had to wash everything by hand before loading. First world problems...
My only other inconvenience was the motion detector lights outside. My husband and I slept downstairs and kids upstairs, and we slept with the windows open to enjoy the sounds of the waves and breeze. The windows were very tall, where i felt like someone could easily pop the screen and step right in. The motion detector light kept flipping on all night which would wake me up and leave me paranoid that someone was outside, and it was hard to relax. This is likely just a sign of the times with the craziness in the world right now, the neighborhood felt extremely safe and I had no reason to believe that there were any weird characters around, but if you enjoy sleeping with the windows open, you might want to chose a bedroom upstairs if this might bother you.

Beautiful place to stay, quiet beach, nice water, nice house, kitchen well supplied with cooking gear.
The floor was not clean, the house is crooked, there are as an adjustment to be made in our walking.
Bring your own spices and herbs.

We enjoyed getting up with the views of the lake and the sounds of the chirping birds. Having the beach across the street was a plus for our younger ones, 3 and 7. Kayaks were enjoyed by our older ones, 15 and 16. Lots of room-comfy and clean furniture.

Be aware that the water quality inside the home was poor. Cloudy, oily, with a fragrance of egg. Did not effect cooking-just made for an unpleasant shower experience.

Make sure to bring extra toilet paper and paper towels!

House was fully equipped with everything needed to cook!
Manager response:

Sometimes mineral-rich water can have a sulfuric or earthy smell to it. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We appreciate your feedback as our guest’s comfort is very important to us. We look forward to having the opportunity to host you for a more enjoyable stay.
