The compound is in a spectacular setting on Thompson’s Point and provides an inviting place to spend quality time with family and friends. Thompson’s Point is a historic Lake Champlain summer community with easy access to outdoor activities, beautiful lake and Adirondack views and peaceful sunsets. It is a short drive to the Charlotte to Essex, NY Ferry, the historic Old Brick Store, the Shelburne Museum and Shelburne Farms.
Having a family reunion? That's exactly why we bought the property! We have 5 - 7 families who love to spend time together. This compound allows for quiet spaces for smaller groups, open concept living spaces, and cozy sleeping nooks as well as a bunkhouse to allow the kids their owns space or one of the families their quiet space.
With children along you may want to have a quiet place where they can do a puzzle or just hang out “away from the adults.” The cottage beckons you to the spacious screen porch to gather and play games. Enjoy each other's company over a rousing game of Hearts, Euchre, Monopoly, or our current favorite, Settlers of Catan. At the end of the day, you can sit on the porch, or at the beach, and enjoy a spectacular sunset across the water. Both are a perfect place to hang out on a lazy afternoon.
Vermont is a prime wedding destination with, iconic scenery and down-home hospitality. Wedding parties will love the lake in the background for family photos before and after the celebrations.
Did we mention retreats? Imagine a small group get-together for your company party or a place with the peaceful sounds of the water and breeze to inspire your group.
In the cottage, the first bedroom comes with a full-size bed and the second has two twins, there are two futons in the family room. In the bunkhouse, connected to the main house by a breezeway, are two bedrooms; one with a full-size bed and another with two twins that serve as a king-size bed. There are two bathrooms, one in the cottage and one in the bunkhouse, both with a tub/shower.
Stone steps lead from the cottage to the cabin. At the base is an outdoor fireplace/terrace area. It is a perfect place to cook out while waiting for the sunset through the trees.
In the cabin, three comfortable sleeping nooks with a curtain to draw for privacy and warmth provides a typical New England camp experience. There are two built-in storage chests with cushions that draws children to it. This cabin is ideal for those who don’t mind roughing it; with a half bath, outdoor shower and kitchenette. A trestle table, built in “cots” and a cozy fireplace provides a relaxed atmosphere to sit back and enjoy the fresh Vermont air in the company of friends and family. The lower camp currently has a kitchenette with plans to install a stove in the future.
One of the charms of this property is the lake access both for wading and swimming and for the cement dock as a launching site for your quiet craft. In the best of weather, Lake Champlain is ideal for canoe and kayak enthusiast. And even a small sailfish is appropriate for this little cove. Local rentals are available.
It should be noted that the cabin and waterfront have limited access and are not 'accessible space'. There is wifi at the cottage and bunkhouse but no wifi at the cabin; which provides the perfect place to help the family unplug. Because of the rocky shorefront, swim at the waterfront at your own risk. There is a town beach that may be more appropriate for those who need to spend time at a beach.
