“Counting down the days til the next visit!”
Reviewed September 4, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Literally the best vacation spot for those looking to completely get away, unplug, and relax! The cabin is one of a kind; rustic, secluded and on the best piece of lakefront property in the state of Vermont. Jamie truly though of everything to make the best of your stay, if you want to snorkel, swim, or chose from four different boats to enjoy the lake...or just read a book in the hammock. My family and I had the best time together and are already making plans to come back for many years to come.

“Well-equipped cabin at secret Vermont lake”
Reviewed August 2, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Unless you hang out regularly at the Buxton's country store in Orwell, Vermont you probably have never heard of Sunset Lake in Benson, Vermont. That's where we first learned of this clean and serene lake after a bike ride in this quiet corner of Vermont - 40 min away from Middlebury and Rutland. That first swim got us hooked and we located Jamie's rental and got to stay for a week this summer. The cabin has everything you need including the best floating dock, kayaks, hot shower, laundry to dry towels, an inventive garage door screened living room system that works so well, perfectly placed reading lamps, and a good roof for hearing rain storms. Some families may not like being so far away from a larger town but we brought our groceries and ate in, visiting restaurants in Middlebury/Rutland after road trips to hike Camels Hump and visit several Vermont waterfalls/scenic sites. Never got to the local eats that do exist - Wheel Inn, BBQ and Taco stand - but we hope to return another year. Thanks Jamie.

“Our family loves this comfortable, pet friendly camp,with amazing lake view & amenities!!”
Reviewed July 30, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Sunset Lake is private, clean & beautiful! The cabin is right on the lake, with two docks, one floating, kayaks, rowboat, and paddle boat to get sun & exercise. My husband vacationed here years ago & now we bring our grown sons & their wives to relax and renew. There is so much to see & do in the area, with nearby farm stands, quaint restaurants, museum and glorious landscapes. Going back again next year!

“Best place for relaxing and getting away”
Reviewed July 10, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The lake is gorgeous! The floating deck is fun - to be able to swim in the deeper water away from the shore without worries and lots of swimming back & forth.

Gas grill, wifi, fridge/freezer, stove. Plenty of opportunity to "cook at home (base)." Surprising number of nearby dining options: Wheel Inn (favorite), West Coast Tacos, BBQ stand.

Jamie is a gracious host and very nice guy.

This place could sleep a lot of people There are 2 twin beds, a king bed, a fold out, a futon, and a couch. Lots of room. The living room has two "garage doors" that open up and allow the breeze through the living room while keeping bugs out with screens.

I could go on and on. If you're considering this place, just book it. You won't regret it.

Thanks for the great review! I work very hard to ensure a fun and relaxing Sunset Lake experience for my guests. I too am a FlipKey / Trip Advisor traveler myself and appreciate a thoughtfully equipped home. Sunset Lake is a unique and special place unlike any other in Vermont. Happy to know your vacation was relaxing. Come back soon! Jamie

Reviewed September 23, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Oh, joy! Two big dippers. One in a dark, star-clad sky, and the other reflected on Lake Sunset, Vermont. And this from my bed as I awoke at my usual 3:00 a.m. In the morning, a blue, gold, and green day awaited us. And all this in total silence. This place is heaven. Add deliciously comfortable beds and all other furnishings necessary for a delightful fun-filled vacation. We found a marvelous homey restaurant very close by, and a couple of nice friendly general stores. We were sorry to miss Jamie, who was out of town, but his mother, Marie, gave us a warm welcome. Confining staircases gave us two 80+ year olds a little trouble, but they were well lit, and we managed! But hence not 5 stars. Raft, dock, kayaks, and pedal boat much enjoyed. Would come to the cottage again, if we were a little younger.Thanks, Jamie!

“Rustic, cozy and comfortable place to relax”
Reviewed September 8, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

It was exactly what our family needed. A quiet comfortable place to relax, laugh and break bread together. Inside the camp was clean and we loved the doors that open and look over the lake. We shared quiet mornings of coffee (some had tea) and cereal while we watched the lake awaken for the day. I loved taking a kayak out (two supplied) early in the morning. I was able to get within 3ft of the loons before they moved away. As the day wore on we packed up a cooler with water and snacks and gathered the fishing poles up. A favorite pasttime was taking the movable dock out into the lake and fish, but we also used it for a great reading spot or jumping into the lake platform. We used the bbq quite a bit but the kitchen was adaquate to cook in. We loved the Cuisinart knives and I ordered a set when I got home. There is a lot of open space which make air move through nicely. It is rustic but it's very comfortable. Jamie is well organized and everything we needed was supplied. We loved it.
