Cliffside Cabins

All eight of our rustic Cliffside Cabins provide unspoiled views of Lake Champlain from a screened sitting porch. Depending on the unit, these cabins sleep from 2-4 guests; all have a double or queen bed and some have additional twin or bunk beds. These charming cabins each include a private toilet, shower, and sink. Bed linens, pillows, washcloths and face towels are provided. However, you should bring your favorite bath and beach towels. Small dressers, hanging and shelf space are available for your personal belongings.

All of these cabins are approximately the same size and layout. A small refrigerator and dual burner hotplate, dishpan & drying rack are supplied to facilitate simple meals; please bring your own cooking supplies, utensils, pots and dishes. The cabins have power, but the only screen we provide is the one on the screen porch and windows to keep the bugs out while watching the lake.

In breezy weather, the cabins have excellent cross-ventilation. If you are expecting to stay during hot weather, you may want to bring a box or table top fan.

We are required by law to only have as many people in the cabins as we have beds. Please keep this in mind when reserving and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. In order to accommodate as many guests as possible, cabin stays of less than a week may be moved to other similar cabins as needed without prior notice.

The 2023 weekly rental fee for a Cliffside Cabin is $700, (plus 9% state tax and reservation fees) They rent from 4 pm check-in on Saturday afternoon to checkout at 10am Saturday. Shorter stays with a two night minimum, early and late season, allowed if available ($120/ nightly plus taxes and fees). Cleaning fee of $50 will apply to any stays of less than a week. Please call to book, 802-372-4200. We do not have an online reservation option.

Clifside 1-8

In the photo above, you are looking at Cliffside Row from Cliffside 8 on the right, to Cliffside 1 at the bottom of the hill.

Cliffside Cabins share a communal fire pit and picnic area at the top of the row,  next to Cabin 8. The view from the cliff is outstanding, and a great place to end your evening with new and old friends, watching the sun set over the lake. You may want to bring your own folding chair to better enjoy the fire!

Cliffside 8 is the largest and most popular Cliffside Cabin, and also books the fastest. The panoramic view is outstanding and allows a fabulous start and end to your day from sunrise to sunset! Cliffside 8 sleeps 3 with a queen bed and single bed. It is next to the group picnic area, so it might not be desirable for those who prefer early bedtimes.

The screened porch overlooks the lake and Vermont’s Green Mountains, and has a sitting area and table. Small refrigerator (with tiny freezer), hotplate and metal table work for simple meals; you will need to bring any kitchen supplies you plan to use. There are areas for hanging dry clothes inside, and wet clothes outside on the laundry lines. Shelves and bureaus provide storage for any items you bring along!

Bedding complete with blankets and pillows are provided. You may want to bring box fans for the hotter months.
