This was a family trip which was unfortunately cut short. The location was wonderful. Close to things, right on the lake and very quiet. The house is very cute with a great porch overlooking the yard and lake.

This was one of our all-time favorite places to stay. The neighborhood is quiet, the view is absolutely stunning, John is fantastic & so friendly, and the sunrises left us speechless. It's a small, cozy space that has everything you could ever need, both inside an outside. The kitchen is the most fully-stocked kitchen we have ever seen in a rental home with a full knife set, coffee maker, toaster oven, lobster pot and so so much more. A super close ride to Burlington, local farms for fresh produce, restaurants, and if you need ideas, there is a binder full of local parks and nearby attractions. This house is FILLED with charm and small details & nuances that you don't see in houses anymore — we fell in love with everything about it and cannot wait to come back in the future!

We (2 + 3 adult children) had a fabulous stay at the Blue Camp and if you are looking for an authentic, lake-side camping experience in VT then I highly recommend this place. The views from the porch and living room are stunning and include sun and moon rises. The interior is very charming and authentic. The camp is very well equipped both in and out - we used the bicycles and kayaks and are only sorry that we didn't use them sooner. Views of the shore as you paddle to the point are exceptional. Kitchen is very functional and outdoor grill is great. Great farmer's markets and fresh produce in the immediate area. The gas fireplace is perfect for taking out the morning chill. Be aware that the BR partitions do not go up to the ceiling (the bedrooms are partitioned-off more like loft space) and the floors creak a bit, but for us this only added to the camping experience that we were looking for. This is a camp, not a house. Communicating with John was a breeze, and without a doubt I would rent this camp again. VT camping at it's best.

Location was paramount in our visit. We went to Stowe fall Festival one day. Next went to Adirondack mountains in New York the next day. Then to White mountains in New Hampshire the following day. Numerous visits to locations in Vermont. Lake Champlain holds many picture opportunities. The fall colors were the best we have ever seen and they were everywhere. Can't wait to return. John was a very gracious host and his home had all the basics and more. The screened in porch was restful for tea and snacks in the morning and evening. Thank you, John

Our stay at Blue Camp was wonderful. The camp was clean, comfortable and provided all the necessities and more. We enjoyed the view from the screened in porch, especially the morning sunrise. The kayaks, paddle board, bikes, ping pong and badminton kept us entertained. It is in the perfect location to enjoy the bike trail, Causeway Trail, local beaches and Burlington. John was a super host and we look forward to returning -highly recommend it.

John, thank you for offering up the best kept secret on Lake Champlain. I could spend hours sitting on the porch and just letting the lake life take me away and make me sane again.

We really enjoyed the property itself. It was in a great area with easy access to both Burlington and other spots we visited in Colchester. The only issue we saw was that it was not advertised that the property was to be cleaned by the guests themselves. As everyone has a different standard of "clean" it is hard to judge what was actually cleaned before our arrival. It would help to have had this one aspect advertised on the Vrbo website ad itself before having to book this to find out. I am not sure if someone checks the properties, but when we arrived there was no sheets on the beds and only the comforters which is not appealing as a paying customer as I paid a good amount of money to stay there for 3 days. As I stated, everyone has a different standard when it comes to cleanliness and knowing now that customers are responsible to clean everything from the linens to the floors to the bathroom is just not as appealing. Other than that, we had no issues and the house itself was very cute and well kept for an older camp. We would definitely love to stay there again just some suggestions for the future.

The house was exactly as described. The beds were comfortable, the living space was cozy, the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking - and the screened-in porch with the rocking chairs was a dream! The views of Mallett's Bay were exceptional. We cannot wait to visit again!! Thank you!

Everything you need to know is in your check-in email and rental agreement. Never had to bother the owner with any questions. Many appliances and amenities you could possibly expect are already supplied, including a full kitchen, with the one exception that we ran into being no hairdryer to be found. I get the sense that the neighbor to the south is a bit joyless, but we didn't need to have any words with them since we were quiet, kept the dog on a leash on the property, kept the car on the property, and did not go on the dock. I would say the camp could use a big update, absolutely, but you're getting good value for the location at least. If you can't handle a spider or a dated and dusty camp, don't go. The shower is super small (and my only major gripe), but the water runs nice and hot (it is tankless, so if it goes cold, keep it running). Keep in mind you have to set the place just as you found it on your way out.
