Overview

About the property

4-Bedroom House With Large Private Beach and Amazing Views.

Spacious 4-bedroom, 3-bath home with private pebble beach on Button Bay, two miles from Basin Harbor Club. Panoramic views of the lake, the Adirondacks, and sunsets. Huge deck. Excellent swimming, boating, fishing, and biking. The property’s 2.15 acres includes the beach, woods, a stream, and a level one-acre lawn. The beach is equipped with four kayaks, a canoe, a rowboat, and two junior paddleboards. And if you bring a boat, you can launch it from the property. We keep a mooring at about 4 ft. depth. Life jackets for both children and adults are available. Firepit with benches on the beach and fireplace for cold nights. Great fishing in the bay right off the shore.

Two queen beds, one full, one bunk bed with full over full, and two twins, with lake views in the master bedroom and one of the guest rooms. One full bath, one 3/4 (master bath), and one half bath. All bedrooms are air conditioned. The kitchen is stocked with everything you will need to cook or bake as well as most condiments. Grill easily on the large deck.

House is year-round with oil and electric heat. Amenities include washer & dryer, game room with foosball, ping pong, and pool table, as well as a two-car garage, with ample additional parking.

18-hole championship golf course, restaurants, and Maritime Museum are available at Basin Harbor Club. You also can walk or bike to Button Bay State Park, which has hiking trails, a nature center, and a swimming pool. Two public islands in the bay are great to canoe or kayak to. One of them, Button Island, was featured in a 1996 Boston Globe article on the newspaper staff’s fifteen favorite places in New England.

10-minute drive to the town of Vergennes. 30 minutes to Burlington and Middlebury. Vergennes was named one of the “nine best small towns for food in the U.S." by Tasting Table online newsletter in October 2016.

For skiing, Sugarbush, Mad River Glen, and Middlebury Snowbowl are about an hour away, Jay Peak about two hours.

For cycling, Button Bay Road is part of a cruise featured in Best Bike Rides in New England by Paul Thomas. For birdwatching, the bay is recommended in Birdwatching in Vermont by Ted Murin and Bryan Pfiefer. There are ducks, geese, loons, herons, etc. Watch osprey’s dramatic aerial show daily from your deck.

When exploring the beaches, you can collect the button-shaped stones that Button Bay is named for.
