Our stay was wonderful. The place was so clean and well appointed, and we were sad to leave.
We had a really lovely weekend at Melinda’s place.
NOT ENOUGH STARS
There are not enough stars to rate this wonderful property.
It is a wonderful, clean, cozy cottage tucked away in the woods.
A beautiful view of the lake and a charming yard.
Nothing is missing inside...everything you would want or need in the kitchen and the bathroom is spacious. The pics do not due it justice.
It was pristine .
We would return in a heartbeat!
Great House Next to Basin Harbor!
We enjoyed our stay at Mindy's house so well we added an extra day.
When we planned vacation, we considered Maine, New Hampshire, the Cape and Nantucket, as well as Vermont. We wanted to be on the water with a full range of water sports, since it would be in August and we have two young boys. Mindy's house on Lake Champlain offered the best combination of space and amenities.
In a few minutes our boys (8 and 10) could ride their bikes over to the Basin Harbor Club by themselves. Because, unlike most water-side resorts, the BHC is surrounded by farms, this was a safe ride. And at the large BHC property, they had a good degree of independence, better than we can provide at home. The Club has an excellent lake front location with a recently redone marina. There were enough guests to socialize with without ever failing to find a prime spot on a lounge chair overlooking the lake or a reservation for a sailing lesson or for dinner.
The BHC is a great destination for people with kids. But we wanted a full sized house, peace, quiet and privacy. By renting from Mindy, we got the best of both worlds.
The house and location were as described in the listing. The kitchen is recently renovated and a pleasure to prepare food in. We had no trouble sharing the 1 1/2 baths between us. There was plenty of table and counter space to spread out everyone's stuff. The beds were comfortable and clean. The towels were in good condition. One pleasant surprise was that the bedroom Mindy styles the 'garden room', which I had guessed would be a basement space, was actually on the second floor with the other bedrooms.
Everything was clean, neat and well organized when we arrived. Essentials like laundry and dish detergent, paper towels, bath soap, salt, pepper, light bulbs were all provided.
One minor improvement might be to provide a drying rack for hand wash dishes. Although the dishwasher works fine, there are always some of these.
We had a great vacation and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house.
Beautiful lake Champlain house!
This house is perfect for a family vacation at the lake. Located close to Vergennes and the grocery store, it is a 50 yard walk to the lake. This cove also has a sandy beach without mussels, so perfect for our kids and my mother to get in the water! The house itself is wonderful-modern, updated kitchen with gas range and dishwasher. Great screened in porch for dining and lounging , and three bedrooms upstairs all with AC, which was fantastic as we were there during the hottest week of the summer! I highly recommend this house to anyone who wants a real Vermont vacation.
Beautiful house, very well appointed
Mindy has thought of everything! We arrived with 3 generations to stay while my son graduated from Middlebury College just up the road. There were fresh lilacs placed all over the house. Clean, well stocked and easy to live in. Plenty of room and comfortable for everyone. Great views of the water. Mindy was very responsive with any questions that we had. Quick drive to Vergennes. Overall, we were really happy and can easily recommend this property.
Did not want to leave!
This home is a true Vermont lake home at it's best. We loved every minute of our stay and did not want to leave. The home is charming and has feel of vintage Vermont but is updated with all the modern amenities that make it very comfortable. The thought that went into the smallest of details is evident every where you turn. The home has wonderful light and is very clean. It is a short and enjoyable walk to Basin Harbor Club. Mindy made us feel very welcome and we truly can't wait to return.
The Ferrisburgh/Vergennes area is full of fun things to do and wonderful places to go!! Basin Harbor Resort is within walking and biking distance and is available to the public! There are many wonderful restaurants in Vergennes like the Black Sheep, 3 Squares Café and The Park Squeeze! On Thursday afternoons there is a Farmer's Market on the town green. Other interesting attractions include The Shelburne Museum, The VT Teddy Bear Factory, Dakin Farm, and the Shelburne Vineyard, just to name a few!!
