family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at Pelots Bay Lodge with our family of 7 celebrating my birthday. It was the perfect house, large open area so all could be together whether cooking, eating or playing games. Love the fireplace on cool days. Each couple had a separate bedroom with views of the bay. The bay was great for canoeing, kayaking and fishing with easy access to the lake to take motor boat out for a ride or fishing. Large yard to play corn hole, bocce ball or frisbee. Great time!

Paradise With A Lake Champlain View!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter got married at Camp Abnaki this last August and we had a group of 4 mature couples with assorted additional family members seeking shelter for the wedding week. We wanted a place near the camp with enough room to accommodate all of us with room to spare, just in case. We actually numbered 10 house guests and we easily hosted gatherings with many more wedding celebrants.

The house and the property were wonderful. We enjoyed quiet seclusion on the lake along with convenient access to all the amenities of N. Hero. The house was clean and well equipped. The layout of the rooms holds a big advantage over many of the other rentals we looked at: The 4 bedrooms facing the lake are all comfortable and equivalent, so there was no competition for the best room. Many large homes have a big master BR suite and then smaller rooms for lesser guests. Pelot's Bay Lodge provides democratic facilities so that all guests are equally pampered.

Our host Roger was very accommodating and helped us get oriented at the outset of our stay. He even recommended our best restaurant find: Shore Acres Inn just south of town.

Our wedding preparations kept us busy all week, but we did find time to grab Creemies and sample the great Hershey's Ice Cream down south at Seb's Snack Bar at the Apple Farm Market on Rt. 2 in S Hero.

I would recommend this Lodge to anyone who plans to visit N. Hero with a large group!

Great Family Get-together Site !

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 14 other Members of my immediate family spent a very pleasant week here in June. This waterfront lodge has all the modern conveniences you should ever need. It was very clean and spacey while still being homey. The owners were very pleasant and answered any questions that were posed. The view of the lake and the lodges waterfront were spectacular. A perfect place for Families and reunions. Highly recommended.

Great great room!

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a home with at least five bedrooms for all the adult couples in our family. This home was perfect! The property matched it's description and we had plenty of room. Our favorite part was the large first floor with an open plan. The kitchen was large and well equipped, and all 16 of us were able to fit around the large table. We spent memorable evenings on the back deck overlooking the bay, and enjoyed amazing sunsets. We really enjoyed daily bike rides all over the island of North Hero, especially our daily ritual of riding down to Hero's Welcome General Store in the early morning and indulging in their pastries and coffee. Drawbacks were mostly weather related - lots of gnats that screens didn't keep out, and the beach was weedy with high water levels so we didn't spend time lounging and swimming there as we had hoped. Assuming this isn't a regular thing, I have indeed recommended this property to my friends - they were all very envious when they saw our gorgeous pictures!

Great for large families

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family (ages 3 through 75) stayed here for a family reunion the week of July 3rd, 2010. We were immediately impressed with the location right on the water. It was nice to access the water right from the backyard rather than across the street like many other rentals in the area. Though it was excessively hot (95 degrees every day), this property is close to all state parks and the fabulous, sandy beach areas at each. We were able to launch canoes and kayaks right from the shale, gradually sloping lakefront and swim to the floating raft. The yard is HUGE and perfect for any kind of lawn/outside games and gatherings, and the lakeside firepit was a great way to spend the evening steps from the water. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood perfect for early morning bike rides. With a couple of oscillating fans and some bug spray, it is impossible not to enjoy this location. Highly recommended, and the owners were very accomodative with our special requests. Another plus we didn't find at other rentals was the water--clean for drinking right out of the faucet with no odor and always hot for showers.

I can not wait to return.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first year we went to the house. It was fantastic and a bit of a surprise for the money we paid. We plan on going back again and again.

There were 6 couples and we all loved the house. The best surprises were the dishes. We could not believe how many pans and dishes were int he house. We had more than enough for all the home renters and our guest that came up to visit. The two large grills on the patio were a great addition. Being a chef, I loved the six burners in the kitchen. Found it odd that the cabinet panel was gone on the additional two burner but really enjoyed having all that space. We baked and cook our time away on the rainy day. The showers had great pressure and we never ran out of hot water. You are going to be surprised at the amount if seating area in the house and out of the house. Couches lined up and a hearth that is great for sitting. The dining table is a families dream come true. One of our night had the table brimming over with 16 people.

Bad news. The beds were pretty loud. I am not sure if this was the frames or the beds themselves. We all were laughing in the house cause everytime someone rolled over, the whole house could hear it happen. With that said, they were very comfortable and there were extra blankets in every closet. The patio door in the bedroom was locked. Three of the four patio doors opened but mine did not. It was a shame not to be able to sit out when the sun is coming up. Last item is the basement. I am living Colorado but I remember growing up in Vermont. This is not a huge deal but I would put something in the basement/crawl area below the house. There is a wicked mole/mildew smell coming out of the door next to the main floor bathroom. It happens...but should be addressed.

Overall, we loved this house, inside and out. The owner was responsive to our request for one more day, I talked to my family in Vermont and we hope to rent this again for our reunion. The amenities were well past what we thought would be there. Wi-Fi is not there and you will get little phone service there. Isn't that a DREAM when on vacation.
