A beautiful home with wonderful views and location. Clean, comfortable, and well-stocked. Great amenities including swimming, firepit, beach, paddle boards and kayaks. Ten to fifteen minutes drive into downtown Burlington. Will hope to be back again.

Jeanne Munoz Bay House

Beautiful house situated right on Lake Champlain. Full kitchen and dining area overlooking lake and sky. Hardwood floors with all new appliances. King-sized bed with multiple closets and lots of space with an upstairs loft with an epic view. Grill outside on deck with beach access and firewood and pit for bonfires. Our stay here was relaxing and felt luxurious along the lake within the Vermont woods. It was the best part of our trip back East.

MLB The Vermonter

Beautiful property! So great to be able to wake up and look at the lake every morning. We had a great stay and are already planning our next visit. So close to many Burlington area attractions. the Champlain Bungalow was perfect for my wife, daughter, and me. Looking forward to many future stays!

Randy Onario Champlain Bungalow

Super comfortable, very clean, very spacious, awesome view. We were only able to stay for two nights maybe next time we can stay a whole week.

Matt Faus Lakeside Cottage

I highly recommend this rental for anyone visiting VT. It’s smack dab in the middle of all of Burlington’s best spots.. minutes away from Church street and downtown Burlington - not to mention the view from the living room in this suite is breathtaking! Clear view of lake Champlain. We stayed in suite #2 and haven’t seen the others, but highly recommend this suite for a couple or a small family! Definitely coming here again. Deb, Neil, if you’re reading this... thank you for your hospitality!!!!

Alyssa Hale The Green Mountain

Everything was perfect! Neil and Deb provided a wonderful vacation home for the weekend for my husband and I. Highly recommend this location.

Nikki Bay Chalet

We'd highly recommend this property. The owner, Neil, takes pride in maintaining the completely renovated space. We stayed in bungalow #2 and it was perfect. The location is so peaceful. Just 5 miles to the center of Burlington too.

Mark Sachioni Champlain Bungalow

Amazing view of the lake and a nicely defined interior. Must say the owners go to a lot of effort to maintain such a big house. A must-stay in Vermont. 10 mins to Main street where you can get several restaurants and few pubs. Nearby McDonald's and Dunkin are perfect to grab early breakfast.

Ninad Panda The Vermonter

We absolutely loved our stay here. The building is very new, had all the niceties, and the appliances were all top-notch. The views over the Lake were gorgeous as well.

Christopher Poudrette The Green Mountain

O.M.G. what a find! My BF found this place for a Fall Foliage 5 day trip in NH and VT, and we are hoping to come back in the summer! New, clean, outstanding spot. We could not be happier!

Veronica Lakeside Cottage

Wonderful quiet place with more than everything, you need. We will definitely come Back and stay longer! Such a gem!

Georg Soenksen Bay Chalet

Beautiful peaceful inn on Bay!

Melyblaze Gardens Champlain Bungalow

Thank you for providing a wonderful place to stay for a college bestie reunion.  The fireplace was a nice treat after our hike to the summit of Camel’s Hump.  The view of the bay is amazing and wish we have more time to enjoy it.

Thank you for providing such a cozy house for our night stay.  The view from any window overlooking the bay is beautiful with our luck we also woke up to some snow. 

Skye, Steve, and Sue McDermott Haddonfield, NJ Vermonter

My husband and I took a last-minute trip to try and catch the Northern Lights.  Unfortunately, the clouds did not cooperate. However, this home and the view, along with being able to bring our best boy Marshall (our dog), more than made up for it.  We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be back! 

Brian, Elizabeth & Marshall Wentworth Chicopee, MA Vermonter

Veel Dank! 
We had a lovely 2-night stay at Lakeshore.  Despite the couple of wet days we had, we were easily able to enjoy playing games, watching the Sound of Music, and having dinner in front of the fire.  The area offers loads of activities, where our sweet tooth could not resist visiting Ben and Jerry’s an all American experience and the Von Trapp Family Lodge for some apple strudel.  Many thanks and until next time!

Thank you for the lovely gateway location.  We’ll definitely be back!!!

What a beautiful treasure it is here.  Our family loved every moment.  From the paddleboards at sunrise to swimming and the luxury and comfort of the Vermonter.  Not a detail missing.  One of the best vacations we’ve had, ever. 
Wish we didn’t have to leave!!
Thank you for a lovely time.. SO RELAXING.

This is our 2nd stay at your lovely Inn.  We feel very comfortable here.  The view is awesome-the sunrises are beautiful.  Everything we needed was here.  The best part is our little dog is welcome. We will be back.  
Thank you!

4th visit here & still love it as much as the first time.  Thanks Neil and Deb

It was so much better than expected!  It had all the amenities and more!  It was our first family trip since 2019.  We enjoyed our time here & Neil & Deb came over to help within minutes to help unlock bathroom door & turn on fireplace.  We enjoyed the views & outdoors.  We hope to come back someday. God bless this home & Neil & Deb.  You are doing a great job!

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful Inn.  It made for incredible memory making on our sister’s trip.  It also added state #47 out of #50 for us.  The State, the cite and the people were absolutely perfect. Our day trip to Montreal was super fun as well. We hope to be back with our spouses for a fun lake stay.  Much love and gratitude.

Deb and Neil,
Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us!  The scenery is gorgeous, and the Vermonter feels very welcoming, and we can tell it is well cared for.  Loved the shower curtain. Would love to book again in the summer.  
Thank you!

This is fifth time here.  Each time is better than the last.  Whole family this time. Rainbow on the lake.  Love it here! Thanks for making it so special

Sept.  
Fantastic Stay!  Went for a super fun (and super long) bike ride around South Hero and North Hero Island.  But the best part was coming back to a night hot shower and snuggling into a big, comfy bed for a nap!
Thank for everything!

As we sit and read through this journal, we’re at a loss on what to contribute that hasn’t been stated.  76 Lakeshore hits it on every level; location is fantastic & our accommodations were beyond our expectations.  The Colchester community is a gem. We rode our bikes along the Causeway, strolled Church Street in Burlington & made our way to Jericho for maple syrup. 
This was our first vacation to Vermont & look forward to returning and Happy 31st Anniversary to us! 

Christine and Ken Marshall Brook Park, Ohio Vermonter

We three are repeat guests and always enjoy Lakeshore.  Fine fittings, well equipped, lovely view, and three bald eagles this past five days.  Winter weather arriving today!

The Bontas, S. Dennis, MA Vermonter

Neil&Deb, Awesome place with breathtaking view! We're so happy we decided to stay here instead of a hotel.  We brought my parents from Lexington, Kentucky for their first trip EVER to Vermonter.  We'll definitely book again with friends.  Thank you for everything!  Go CATS!

Lane and Amy Norwalk, CT and Lexington, KY Vermonter

What a spot! We love “Lakeshore Vermont” and will be back. Beautiful Inn.  Totally spoiled by all the luxuries.  This place will be highly recommended to many people.  Amazing job, Deb and Neil.

Dear Lake House, 
Being local Vermont dwellers’, we decided to have a Staycation and chose this lovely location.  Everything exceeded our expectations, fulfilling every desire of relaxation we wanted, with still being able to stay in a reasonable closeness.  The master bedroom amazing, as well as the view! The pictures don’t do it justice. Glad to have discovered this gem and we will definitely come back!  I imagine summertime would be spectacular!  
 

Local Burlington Resident Green Mountain

What a perfect surprise Valentine getaway.  The upstairs nook was perfect for getting snowed in with a book.  Stunning snowy views. Our pup, Sage, had a blast running up and down the hill and destroying any6 attempt of a snowman. A very warm and welcoming space with everything we needed.  We will surely spread the work of this little gem!  

Kyle, Chris and Sage Green Mountain

Spectacular and amazing! The entire family (mom, dad, two daughters and Golden) had a great mini vacation.  The views, the attention to detail and perfect finishes make Lakeshore a gem that we will surely return to.  Many thanks from our family t yours.

One of the best places we have ever stayed.  Thanks for a magical weekend.  Showers will never be the same.   
  
 
 

Love from Brooklyn, NY Claire and Frank

Dear Deb and Neil,
We thank you both, so much, for Lakeshore and for both of you.  This reunion would not have happened without you. We have enjoyed it so much and we all thank you.  It has been a meaningful three days. 

Allison, David and Devin Deen

Thanks Neil and Deb, This is a magical place on a magical bay.  Cannot wait to return. All the Best. 

Kevin Cox and Family Green Mountain

Thank you for creating this beautiful and peaceful retreat. Watching the sunrise over the bay will be a memory to keep. The design layout and appointments of the suite is well-done.  Everything was thought of to help us relax from the moment we walked in.  Hope to return.  

Juiles and Bill Reichle, California Green Mountain

Thank you both so much for your hospitality. We absolutely loved and enjoyed our 10 day stay at Lakeshore.  The view from “every level” was impeccable and extremely relaxing. 
Coming from the West Coast, it was so refreshing to see the beautiful trees turn such beautiful colors. We loved Vermont and can see why other do as well.  Blessing to you both. 
 

Gregory and Elizabeth Corbett

We were lucky enough to rent the entire place for our youngest daughter’s graduation weekend from Champlain College.
 
This is beyond our wildest expectations for a lakeside getaway, more than all the comforts and an extra ordinary location.  No noise from the road and an experience that changes throughout the day and night. It was a family reunion with all of kids and spouses and dog. It was a true joy. Thank you.

Another year with a terrific view.  A beautiful space enjoyed by all for our annual family gathering. Thank you, Neil and Deb, for your vision and hospitality. Same time, same place next year.  All our best.

Jessica from Vermont and Debby and David from Maryland Green Mountain

Deb and Neil, Another great stay.  We’re looking forward to next year.  Our Golden Retriever, Sidney, doesn’t want to leave.  You are terrific hosts and we really appreciate the beautiful getaway spot you have created here. 

John and Karen Broadmeadow, Alexandria, Virginia Green Mountain

What an absolutely beautiful stay we’ve had.  We were able to take full advantage of everything this vacation Inn had to offer, including paddling, jumping off the dock into the lake, grilling beautiful steaks, having a fire on the beach, watching primetime football in the loft, and working remotely.  Thanks so much for providing everything we needed to round out our New England Road trip.  Brie, Jay and Mona, Superior, CO.

What a magical place to spend our 10th wedding anniversary! The view and accommodations were outstanding. Our puppy also loved it here. We especially loved the views and walking on the frozen lake. We look forward to returning.  Lori, Bryan, and Murphy

We are a family from Switzerland and decided to spend our summer vacation in New York and New England.  After 5 days of big city life in NYC we came up here to enjoy the countryside.  It’s very similar to Switzerland, very green.  Just the lakes are bigger the mountains are a bit smaller.  We enjoyed the lake and surroundings.   Ben & Jerry’s is a Vermont surprise and a good idea for day trip.  Rented a bike downtown Burlington and rode the bike path all the way to the end of the Island Line Trail.  Thanks Neil and Deb for being such great hosts. 

The Wallschlege Family (Urs, Sonja, Dillon and Kevin) Green Mountain

 
Great place! My wife and I really enjoyed the accommodation. We spent evenings on the deck with the gas-fireplace (highly recommend on a cool evening). This was a bicycling vacation for us. Taking the Causeway trail to Grand Isle (and biking around Grand Isle) was one of the best treks we’ve ever experienced.  No negative-Only positives!!
 

Brian and Deanna Mctwain North Carolina Green Mountain

It doesn’t get much better than this. Great views here at Lakeshore Vermont, and very cozy despite the single digit temperatures outside.  Some of the highlights include, sledding, making friends with locals, and shopping in Burlington/Waterbury and Stowe.  The Burlington Brew Tours was an excellent way to spend the day and learn about local beer. The pizza at Fiddlehead Brewery was five stars and that is coming from a New Jerseyan.  Shelburne Vineyard is a nice place to sample some different wines and they are very friendly.  Looking for bougie meal…try Waterworks in Winooski or the Farmhouse Tap and Grill downtown.  Net time on the agenda-Bingo at Broadacres (right down the street) and a tour of Magic Hat Brewery. Thank you, Neil and Deb, for you hospitality!  

 PS. Don’t miss out on the Cabot Store or Lake Champlain Chocolates on Pine Street.
