The property has gorgeous sunset views of Lake Champlain and is minutes from the Colchester Causeway, which is a fantastic biking/walking/jogging experience with beautiful views. The cabin is rustic and solid, which a great screened in porch for meals and views. A few notes for travelers to consider:
- The staircase to the water - as others have noted - is treacherously steep and NOT accessible to small children or anyone with even minor mobility issues.
- The listing specifies that bedding and linens are laundered in hot water, but is not specific that sheets and towels are NOT included. Most listings are very explicit about bedding/linens being not included.
- The owner communicated a few days prior to our arrival that the washing machine was broken - an important factor for us with a 5 year old attending farm camp (dirty clothes!) all week. We were told the washer was repaired prior to arrival, but it was non functional (fast and significant leak on the bathroom floor when we tried to use it and there were no provided towels for clean-up). The owner was responsive but the unit was not repaired until our last day. She gave me $40 cash at our departure for the inconvenience, but a $100 credit and/or refund would have been more appropriate. Spending a 1/2 day of vacation in a laundromat stinks, plus the ongoing energy sunk into the "will it work / will it not work / when can a repair person come into the unit" back-and-forth was not ideal.
Some smaller and inexpensive details to this rental would go a long way to attracting more potential renters + potential higher rental prices. Overall still a positive rental but with some kinks to work out.
