About Joe Breen
I am a builder from Connecticut who specializes in the complete renovation/restoration of homes from the 1700 and 1800's.
Joe Breen purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Joe Breen chose Vergennes
This spot is located on one of the most scenic lots I have seen on the Lake. the acreage surrounding the home lends itself to a scenic and breathtaking view in every direction. While the original structure was a log home, we added a unique blend through a post & beam addition. The result is a fantastic country retreat. As soon as you enter the property, a sense of relaxation sets in.
What makes this Cottage unique
This lake house has it all; Privacy, beauty, convenience, all tied into all the amenities you enjoy with complete access to the lake. This is not a camp but a year round lake house. Whether its water sports in the summer or sledding down the hill towards the lake in the winter. This was designed for family fun. Not many places on the lake have this amount of capacity without crowding. A great pick to get together for family reunions, weddings, graduations, and the like

Beautiful Lakefront House
The house was just as described and we couldn't say enough about the views. The layout is great for large families to congregate together or have some space apart to do different activities. The weather was so nice that our girls even used the kayaks! Overall, we had a lovely and relaxing vacation. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Had an absolutely amazing stay at this property.
Well kept up. Kitchen was stocked perfectly.
Great lake views!!!
Can't put into words how amazing this house was. We are extremely grateful for being allowed to enjoy it.
Everything we hoped it would be and more!
We have rented on Home Away/VRBO - AirBnB all over the country. This was the best rental experience we have ever had. The property was as advertised, the owner was impeccable in his communication and the location was perfect. My wife and I wanted to escape the heat of Texas and head to Vermont for our 20th wedding anniversary and Joe and property did not disappoint. We hope to return with our children in the summer:-)
This cabin is absolutely gorgeous. Morning and sunset views of Lake Champlain are breath taking. We enjoyed kayaking very much and It was easy to contact Joe when needed. This house was the perfect place for our large family (12) like us. 5⭐️
Our family of 12 had a wonderful stay. This home was beautiful & spacious for all of us to gather in one room for fun, conversation & make meals in gorgeous kitchen. Extra special touches were throughout as if your own. Views & property were a photographer's dream. The dock itself was one like we've never seen, all for you to enjoy...with all the toys! Plenty of outdoor seating on amazing deck with fire pit on a perfect patio... table & chairs with large umbrella to use as well! Bedrooms & bath upstairs, stunning. Joe returned all texts & email directly & quickly. Hope to return for more memories!!
a beautiful escape
The house and grounds were beautiful and quiet. The check in overview was thorough and informative and when I had questions, the owner responded promptly. We LOVED our stay. We had 8 adults and 5 kids and no one was uncomfortable. There was plenty of space and places to sleep. Worth every penny and most likely will return again next season if the property is still available for a vacation rental. Thank you!
