Beautiful setting and wonderful hosts
The setting of this house is really great. You have a lovely view over the lake from all of the rooms and can also easily get down to the lake from the property. The cottage itself is lovely and clean and has everything you need. In particular, the beds are extremely comfy! Mary was extremely helpful and kind - lending us kayaks to go fishing in and going out of her way to look after us. We had a great time cycling around the islands and this was the perfect base for doing so. Thoroughly recommend.

This is a great spot
This is one of the best rentals we've had in all our travels. Owners are very helpful but give you complete privacy. Cottage is beautifully and expensively furnished in every room with lake view in every room. Very serene and peaceful.

Lovely Cottage
Our daughter ran a half marathon on S Hero so we decided to go, support her, and make a weekend out of it. The cottage is lovely, very clean, comfortable, and updated. We were really able to relax. It was great. We met John and Mary, who are the lovely couple who own and take meticulous care of the property and made sure we had what ever we needed. Look forward to a return stay.

Wonderful location, clean, comfortable, charming cottage!
Our family has 2 young children and this cottage was the perfect getaway for us. We loved spending time in the yard and on the play set, sandbox, and swings. The private shale beach and lake access was great for both swimming and kayaking. The owners recommended water shoes on the shale, which was helpful. There are also several state parks nearby with very nice sand beaches (Alburg Dunes was our favorite). The cottage was well-equipped and very comfortable in amenities, cleanliness and size for our family of four. The owners live on the same property, but were always very friendly and helpful when needed, and respectful of privacy at the same time. They even gave us extra toys for the kids on a rainy day and helped us out when we had car trouble. They were extremely thoughtful! Their care was reflected in the well-cared for cottage. We would definitely recommend this cottage to friends!

One of the Best!
Our stay at Island View was phenominal! Communication and procedures prior to the stay were clear and timely. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a personal note and shortly thereafter welcomed personally. The grounds were lovely. Flowers and gardens were all over the yard and clearly well maintained. I enjoyed walking and looking at all of the different planted vegetables and flower beds. The tree swings provided a lot of fun and laughs. (They were my youngest daughter's favorite part of the stay) The view was breathtaking and this view led to stairs to a small piece of heaven. My daughters loved the beach and trampoline float located just off the beach area. John and Berney were even kind enough to let my girls take a try at kayaking. They are still talking about it! My husband and I sat several times on provided beach chairs on the dock and read while taking in the beauty of the lake and watched our children laugh and make memories. The cabin itself was perfect! Everything we expected based on the photos and description and more. We loved sitting on the screen porches, playing family games, and relaxing. The kitchen had every utensil you could need, and we found making meals easy. The location was convienent to all of the fun located on the islands as well as a trip to Burlington for the day. We wished we had had more time to spend in this beautiful location. If we ever come that direction again, will be sure to book our stay here.

Great Getaway
We could not have been happier with our choice. Island View provided everything we were looking for in a lake rental. A perfectly maintained cottage that was extremely clean, comfortable, and well appointed. The grounds and shore with the available amenities were fantastic and had spectacular views of the lake and Green Mtns. The hospitality of the owners and their knowledge of the area and attractions made the stay feel like we were with family. We hope a future stay at Island View is in our near future, as we miss it so much.
