This 4-season home is equipped with gas and electric heat, as well as central air for those hot summer nights.

Enjoy swimming, boating, fishing, biking and hiking in the summer and outstanding skiing on Whiteface or Gore Mountain in the Winter, just an hour away. Fall foliage is breathtaking and provides for stunning photography as well as local farm harvest as you explore the scenic drives of the Champlain Valley or take the Essex ferry across the lake to Vermont.

Living The Dream On Lake Champlain
Beautiful Location in a spacious, well-equipped and cozy home

This property was so perfect! The interior pictures were very accurate and the exterior ones couldn't do justice to the actual view. Gorgeous! We absolutely LOVED how well-equipped the house was from everything you could need in the kitchen to board games, puzzles and movies for extra entertainment to cornhole and abundant chairs available to place around the firepit.

Willsboro is a beautiful place, just a bit remote with a small town so driving excursions for anything we did was usually ~30 min one-way. Would love love love to stay here again!

Perfect for what we all wanted....

This house was perfect for what we all wanted! I was in awe walking into the house and the fact that it’s right on the lake is the best part. Views were amazing, the water was perfect, and we caught a lot of fish! Brian and Gabrielle were such good hosts and was super easy to get ahold of when we needed them. The house was clean and had everything we needed in it! Everyone in our friends group just loved this place and we can’t wait to go back!!! Thank you so much for a wonderful, peaceful week of relaxation!

A Dream Indeed

This visit was a most incredible experience, for the whole family. The extensive media library and distribution system was impressive, but sadly lacked any means for feeding our own material, from laptop/phones, into the system. That would be a nice addition. Otherwise, everything was superb.

Vacation Paradise!

“Living The Dream” is a vacation paradise! We give it five stars for sure! One of our favorite vacation spots after this week. Private location with beautiful views of Green Mountains and spectacular sunrises. Perfect for our two families. Main suite felt like we were worlds apart for desired privacy. It provides all the amenities for a relaxing vacay and fun time with family. Feels like home!

A pool for toddlers is here, but we were glad we brought a larger inflatable one for our five year old granddaughter. She played in it for hours while we relaxed on deck with her. Older grandchildren loved the kayaks and playing pool, air hockey and b-ball. Hammock swings on lower level are great for relaxing! Fishing off deck is convenient. A lot of small catches. Coming back next year for the big boys! ;)

Overall, we had an amazing time and look forward to more summers here!

View of Lake Champlain is magnificent

The house is beautiful with very comfortable furniture and a fantastic Game Room. The view of Lake Champlain is magnificent from almost every room. This is a great vacation home and my family and I enjoyed it very much. Great vacation rental . Brian, the owner is very nice to work with; answered all my questions and addressed all concerns during our stay. Will definitely rent from him again.

If you are looking to remove yourself from a hectic life style, this is the perfect place.

First impression of the front home exterior suggests perhaps the home needs a paint job. However, the back decks, lawn areas and fire pit are comfortable and picturesque. Our grandchildren had a wonderful time on the flat lawn chasing bubbles and balls. We all enjoyed the campfire in the fire pit as we gazed at the vast expanse of lake in front of us. The change in color of the lake as nightfall crept in was peaceful and serene. We enjoyed the cool breezes from the dock placed out into the lake and those brave enough, delighted in quick swims from the dock. Lake access is superb! Couldn't get closer and the privacy...well you felt like you were in your own private piece of paradise.


Amenities - 5 Stars

The home was superbly equipped! The kitchen had tools for everything...baking cookies, grilling, and general food preparation. The dishes, cutlery and glassware were abundant and of good quality. Linens and bath towels were first rate. The amenities surpassed the quality often found in a home rental.


Would you stay again?

Yes


Improvements

Any problem that arose was quickly remedied by the very responsive owner and his team of assistants. We were very satisfied with the immediate attention and response to our very minor glitches.


Feedback for Potential Renters

If you are looking for a peaceful and picturesque visit to Lake Champlain, this home will provide just that. The home is close to the ferry to Burlington which makes it convenient for a day trip over to Vermont. It is a quiet area and not many restaurants or stores in close proximity but if you are looking to remove yourself from a hectic life style, this is the perfect place.

This is an amazing vacation rental and there is no need to look further.

Overall - 5 Stars
The title “Living the Dream” is exactly what it was. Renting this property was worth every penny and we had one of the most relaxing vacations ever. I highly recommend this rental property to anyone. Whenever you wished that you had something, it was there from different games to play to consumables like paper towels. Absolutely amazing!

Interior - 5 Stars

Exterior - 4 Stars
Exterior was awesome and it was so nice to sit in nags head chairs while the kids swam in the lake. The fire pit was awesome and it was perfect playing corn hole and bocce. The lake access could have been better down ay the water. It was tricky to get the kayaks and paddle boat over the rock terrain.
