Lake Champlain/Maquam Bay Cottage - Water Access!
Size –3 Bedrooms • 1 Bathroom 1 Bath • Sleeps 5-8
Welcome to our new family cottage on Maquam Bay! We recently purchased the cottage and are excited to share it with our guests.
ABOUT THE COTTAGE
This slice of heaven on the shores of Lake Champlain sits on the calm waters of Maquam Bay. This cozy cottage provides everything you need to enjoy a lake front retreat in Vermont. Enjoy the sunsets sitting at the campfire and relax on the Adirondack chairs overlooking the Bay. The large, fenced in yard provides plenty of space for relaxation or play (and is great for kids or dogs). The .44 acres is very private with mature trees and bushes lining the property. Watch the sunset over the water with the Adirondack mountains as the backdrop. The ramp provides easy access to the water – step into the shallow waters and cool off. Wildlife is abundant with eagles, herons, egrets, ducks, osprey and more.
Spend the summer, winter, fall or spring on the shores of this Lake Champlain get-away. The cottage itself sleeps four people in two bedrooms (a king bed in the master bedroom and twin bunks in the guest bedroom). There is a newly renovated bunk house as well which can sleep an additional two people in a queen size bed along with a sleeper sofa to squeeze in two more.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The bunkhouse is NOT heated so in the cooler months we recommend that only parties of four people or less rent the cottage.
This spot has it all! A front porch, back deck and a patio along the edge of the water all provide great spaces to relax and enjoy the peace of the lake. There are also two firepits – wood is provided for the traditional firepit and the second one is propane fueled.
Recently renovated with new bamboo flooring the open living, dining and kitchen area is where you'll spend most of your time when you are not outdoors. Comfortable, cozy furnishings in the living area, a dining table that sits six people and a well-equipped kitchen are all provided to make you feel at home. A gas grill is available for use as well. There is also a full bathroom in the cottage.
An added bonus is the private ramp for easy access to the lake for your kayak or paddle board. A tandem kayak is included along with a mix of life jackets. We also have several lawn games ready to play. Should you need to move indoors, the cottage comes with games, books and puzzles to enjoy. There are also 3 tv’s (one in the living room, one in the master bedroom and one in the bunk house). High speed wifi internet service is included. Washer/dryer also available.
Bring Fido! Pets are welcome (up to 2 pets upon approval & $20/day fee applies).
