The property is very much as described. Both cottages are comfy and cozy. There is lots of privacy and the fishing is fantastic. We caught lots of perch and bass. My toy fox terrier had a great time with lots of running space. Bob was a really great host and super accommodating. We all came back from our vacation happy and relaxed. I hope to be able to spend time here again in the future.Chris H.

Step back in time
Just spent a week in Bob’s camps, this makes four trips to North Hero in the past seven years, each time staying with Bob. Its back to the basics, the way it was when life was simple, like stepping back to a time when people made due, not expecting someone to do everything for them. From the long spring slamming the screen door shut, no hydraulic door closer here, to the pump house that brings water up to the camps, it’s actually the old outhouse from decades ago, now serving as the pump house: here time feels unchanging. We bring the boat to fish, but the largest bass we ever caught anywhere was while we sat on shore, in lawn chairs, only 30 feet from the sliding glass doors of the large bedroom, in the trailer, overlooking the bay. I wonderful time with a wonderful host.Scott D.

Great Rustic cottage on the Lake
We were returned to the cottage for our second consecutive year and had a wonderful experience on both occasions! We brought along two 10 year olds and our half crazy dog Yodi. We stayed in the larger cottage which has plenty of room for more. I believe it was built in the 1920's and has a great deal of character. Unlike one of the previous reviewers, we were not expecting, or desiring a stay at the Hilton. If you are, don't stay here, but if you would like you and your kids to be away from your cell phones, with days filled with fishing, sunsets and simplicity, by all means, stay here! The owner of the property, Bob, was very accommodating to our every need. In fact, the other cottage was vacant the week we were there, and we asked Bob if, perhaps we could rent it for a couple of nights as we had friends who were planning on a visit. He said to not worry about it, "Let them enjoy it"! A couple of days later some one called who wanted to rent the second cottage for the week. Bob approached us and asked us if it was ok. He was actually going to let us have the cabin for free rather than rent it for a fee. Now that's service. Of course we thanked Bob for his consideration, but told him to make some money during the short season. We never felt unsafe or uncomfortable, as the previous reviewer had, nor did we expect polished silver and room service! It bothers me that one who may expect this from a 1920's cabin would write such a caustic review without consideration of possible consequences to the owner. She may want to stay closer to home in New Jersey!Rob S.

Retro cottage right on the lake!
We stayed in the smaller cottage and had a really great time. It's a converted 60's trailer, very cool, but roomy enough for two. It's so close to the lake, you wake up to the lake right in front of you and can watch the sunset every night. We canoed (canoe provided) almost every day, found an osprey nest, it was very fun. North Hero is very cute, we would definitely consider renting again, probably renting both cottages. The owner was extremely helpful, just a great experience.Matthew K.
