Why Denise and Pete Cooper 609 805 0905 chose Alburgh
This property was purchased for the enjoyment of Lake Champlain! We appreciate and enjoy the community around the lake, also known as the Champlain Islands. We love our private beach, collecting sea glass, jet skiing, fishing, swimming, biking and kayaking. We like taking day trips to the local state game reserves, hiking at Mount Mansfield, visiting the farmers' markets and trips to Canada. We enjoy the City of Burlington, for dining, shopping and entertainment. Please read the home description for specific information about our lovely home and the property surrounding us. Thank you!

What a great week! This property is amazing and was so great for my family of 5, which included 3 children. It was clean, organized, convenient to the water and private beach and had amazing views. The owners were gracious, available for all questions and made our stay wonderful! If you love Vermont, the lake and privacy this is the place to be! The pictures don’t do it justice- it’s gorgeous!
Thank you for selecting our home to vacation in. We enjoyed meeting you and your wonderful family. We are happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our home. We hope that you'll return again!
Thank you so much!

Amazing lakefront home!
This amazing and spacious home on Lake Champlain was the perfect place for our family vacation. Denise had excellent communication prior to our arrival, and we were happy to find the home spotless. We were surprised that the home seemed even bigger in person than in the pictures. This home also has everything you need to cook. We are a family who loves to eat, and the kitchen was equipped with everything a gourmet chef, or baker would need. During our stay we made homemade bread, cookies, and even Belgian waffles. The grassy lawn is great for children to play on, and the porch is the perfect spot for morning coffee or afternoon happy hour. This home will NOT disappoint. Thank you to Denise and her husband for sharing their slice of paradise with us. We hope to return in the future.
Mike, Gus, Janel, and family:
We appreciate how wonderfully you took care of our home. You went above and beyond to leave it in perfect shape for us. We were very grateful to find everything in perfect order! The kitchen towel drawer was reorganized, you watered our plants, the trash was were taken care of, and there was not a crumb on the counters, or floors. The unusual heavy rain left some water in our basement, and your family took take care of this circumstance. If we left the keys to the lawnmover, Gus would have most likely cut the grass for us as well. The house was spotless and everything was in its place, just as we left it!
We are glad to know that your family enjoyed their time in our lake home, and we appreciate that you stayed. We hope to see you again!
Thank you all for your thoughtfulness!

Beautiful property. Perfect Hosts!
My sisters and I just completed a week long stay at Denise & Peter's beautiful home. The house is depicted perfectly in the pictures with every amenity you might want, including waffle and pancake griddles, every spice imaginable, Keurig coffee maker etc. Available also were rafts for the lake and beach chairs (plus wood for a fire pit along the shore). We were very late coming out of Montreal and the Coopers waited for us so they could show us all the house has to offer. Responsive to our every need. It is very peaceful and a perfect place to wind down. They also provided many, many brochures for activities on the islands and in Vermont. We had a fantastic week. I highly recommend this beautiful property. You won't be disappointed!

This home is exquisite and perfect for a getaway anytime of the year. We loved it !!!
Thank you for the wonderful review, Laura and Dan. You are 5 star guests! Please come and stay again/

Vermont at its best; spectacular property inside and out!
Our family of 4 needed a quick escape from routine. As longtime residents of Vermont we know the beauty of this little state and chose to not travel, opting for a stay-cation lakeside. Denise and Pete's property fit the bill perfectly; it is a gem - located just 45 min from Burlington the home and surroundings exceeded our expectations and the owners are thoughtful, caring individuals who made every step easy.
Booking was quickly accomplished with prompt, considerate communication and willingness for flexibility re: the dates, arrival and departure times to allow us extra hours.
Denise and Pete met us for arrival and provided an introductory tour explaining details and instructions. Written materials are also available for the home and local tourism offerings. They gave contact information for routine and emergency needs and followed up during the week to make sure all was well. A flower bouquet and chilled bottle of wine were left with handwritten note of welcome; lovely little extra touches that mean a lot.
The house is large, open, airy and beautifully finished/decorated to suit the spectacular site. The location at end of road facing primary south provides long and panoramic open views of the lake, mainland Vermont to Mt. Mansfield east, and Lake Champlain Islands to the west. Huge gently sloping lawns lead to an easy access stone beach that can store kayaks and more water toys, and includes a fire pit area. Neighboring homes are distant, quiet.
Inside, huge banks of windows in the common areas on the lakeside walls of the home catch the eye and maximize the lake setting; the sunroom is nothing but extraordinary! A large, beautifully designed kitchen has anything needed and more. Family room and living rooms are warm and comfortable with low tech games, books as well as large interactive TVs. Bedrooms and baths are 5 star hotel equivalent. Fast, reliable internet and superb cell phone reception was much appreciated. All areas are modern, tastefully decorated and white glove clean. The ranch style provides easy access with 2 step entry for any mobility challenged individuals. An outside patio and all house pathways, foundations are landscaped with annual and perennial gardens and potted plants. Solar lighting accents add twinkle and magic.
Inside and out, both this amazing property and its lovely homeowners are beautiful, warm and welcoming. A perfect example of Vermont living at its best. You will not be disappointed.
The most amazing lake front property you won't want to ever leave!
First of all, I'd like to start by thanking Denise and Pete Cooper for their hospitality, generosity, and thoughtfulness. They met us upon our arrival with welcoming smiles and a genuinely warm greeting. Pete was on point with his seemingly prepared(lol) presentation of the things we needed to know about the house and property and everything else to make sure we had a great vacation!
The house itself is immaculate inside and out. Not only is the general layout ideal for groups; there were 7 of us, 6 adults and one teenage boy, but the home is wonderfully furnished and decorated. Denise has an amazing sense of decorating style, a lot of the pieces you'll see are her ideas made by her, including her collection of sea glass creatively used in many vases and such. Everything is in like new condition, with high quality pieces, whether in the living room, kitchen, or HUGE family room/game room/bar. Believe me guys, you will all go home wishing you had a room like this in your house. The bedrooms were roomy, with very comfortable beds, and fully furnished. Both full baths were clean and fully appointed with anything you might need. The kitchen is the heart of this home. With a massive island, plenty of counter space, top notch appliances, and plenty of seating for 10 or more when you count the beautiful dining area. Did I mention the coffee bar? It's a small room right off the kitchen with a large Kuerig machine, water cooler, counter and cabinets, and even a basket rack. We kept all our fresh veggies and fruit on that rack. And every morning, this room was everyone's first pitstop for a fresh hot cup of joe!
The property itself is one of a kind! Several acres of lush flat lawn, with a gentle slope to the water's edge where you'll find 300 feet of sandy and rocky beach. The water is crystal clear and refreshing. There is a a fire pit just a few steps from the water; a perfect place for roasting s'mores, telling old stories, and making wonderful memories.
The bottom line is, our experience with this rental property far surpassed our expectations. We can't wait to go back next summer! Thanks again Pete and Denise!
