"We traveled to Bob's home with our family which included, kids ages 1-15, parents and grandparent summer 2022. We had a party of 12 and fit perfectly in this spacious home. It's grand rooms were filled with all the comforts of home and not to mention the amount of bathrooms/bedrooms exceeded our expectations. Bob's (owner) house is a home for all that stay.
We did travel a bit into the town and did the local stuff....blueberry picking (Pelkey's), Shelburne Farms/Educational Center, Vermont teddy bear company, local water holes (Warren Falls & Town of Waitsfield) and markets (check out Shelburne meat market...we can still taste the wings and crab cakes). You honestly don't need to leave this home. It has the perfect backyard equipped with multiple seating, lounging, play set, picnic table, pool and best of all the tree swing. The neighborhood is very family friendly, well taken care of and respected by all. We took many strolls to the covered bridge right down the road. The docks were perfect for fishing, reading and just for a moment of solitude with the views. The Lake Champlain is one of a kind. The water was seasonably warm and refreshing. We enjoyed the kayak and just some nice lounging in the water. Kids and adults easily navigated through the lake with water shoes on as recommended by Bob. The kids were in their glory between the pool and lake. Best of both worlds. The grounds were well manicured and very child friendly.
The dining room table fit all 12 of us for a family meal with views of the pool and lake. Many nights spent on the screened in porch just chatting. The sunsets were truly heavenly. The kitchen is a chef's dream. We didn't even need to eat out. We purchased local foods, cooked together, listened to music and sipped some wine with the constant views of the beautiful lake. We spent little time indoors and most of all outside. Never once missed a television. Kids also loved the secret playroom.
My interaction with Bob the property owner was great and very responsive. House listing just as described. Bob's home has all....you just need to pack your clothes....literally. The property manager Ricky was also very responsive, when we needed something. We really appreciated their availability to us.
This property exceeded our expectations. From our first arrival to our last day we made wonderful family memories that will be cherished forever. Thank you Bob for sharing your home with us. We hope to come back in the future."
