The Green Cottage on Lake Champlain, VT - Vacation fun for families and couples! Call 802-395-1155
The Green Cottage on The Gut of Lake Champlain is steps from the water's edge. Walk in and enjoy the lake. Bring your boat to tie up to our shared dock. BBQ on the grill and dine lakeside. You and your family will create memories that will last a lifetime.
Our fully furnished and equipped home offers you and your family all the comforts of your home but in a spectacular location. We provide all the paper products, soaps, towels, sheets and other basics that you'll need. Just bring your clothes, beach towels, special water toys and groceries.
Our home is close to many attractions that your family can enjoy on day trips including Ben & Jerry's Factory in Waterbury, Vermont Teddy Bear Factory in Shelburne and Parc Safari, just over the Canadian border in Hemmingford, Quebec. Burlington, VT is only 30 minutes away. In an hour and 15 minutes you can be in Montreal where you'll find all the perks of a big city including The Bell Centre, Old Montreal, the Biodome, Le Ronde Amusement Park and more.
You may not find a chance to visit all these attractions because you'll be enamored with your lakeside vacation home. If you don't own the equipment, you can rent motor boats, sailboats, and bicycles nearby. Our guests love fishing off the dock. In the evening, gather the family around the huge fire pit, roast marshmallows, sing songs or share your memories of the day.
The Green Cottage has 2 floors. The master bedroom occupies the entire second floor. The king-size bed faces the wide sliders onto the private deck. The master bath features a 2-person walk-in shower. The walk-in closet can serve as a bedroom for your little one. With a full-size window and two pocket doors, the space has the necessary egress. There are more closets and a desk area in the master suite too.
The queen bedroom is on the first floor, along with a full bath, the fully-equipped kitchen and Great room. An extra dining table gives you space to try and finish a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle during your stay.
Our Cottage also has cable TV service with a flat screen TV, wired and WiFi Internet service, a Blu-ray player with Smart features allowing you to connect to your Netflix and other Internet accounts. The MitsubishiAC units will keep you comfortable on the hottest days.
Although washing laundry when on vacation doesn’t sound fun to me, you’ll have the machines if you need them.
We have so many more places to see and adventures to partake listed on our Website.

Note: During the off-season, 1-, 2- or 3-day reservations are all minimally charged for 3 days. The daily rate is further reduced from these published rates when staying 4 days.

Susan and Andy have lived in Grand Isle, VT since 2011. We had a summer cottage in North Hero, another Champlain Islands town before that. An opportunity came for us to move and enjoy the Lake year-round and still be close enough to family, friends and businesses in nearby Chittenden County.
We absolutely love living on Lake Champlain. The sunsets are spectacular here. It's a nightly event for us.
The Islands burst with activities in the summer. Andy and I love going to the weekly free music concerts at several venues in the Islands. We also love hopping on our jet skis to go for rides and explore new places on the lake.
We've been in the vacation rental business since 2012 and have met many wonderful guests. We'd love to meet you!
