Welcome to Overlake on Malletts Bay! The Cottage is an adorable, rustic, clean and quaint, one bedroom, one bath lodging with beach access.

Featuring incredible views of Lake Champlain from dawn to dusk, the Cottage makes a great base to explore Burlington and it's surrounding areas.
It is a non-smoking / no pets property.

The space
The Cottage has been recently updated, but maintains it's historic/rustic charm.
This accommodation is a fully furnished, one bedroom / one bathroom cottage. WIFI is available.
Enter through the galley kitchen with electric stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, Keurig (with an initial supply of pods) and dishes. Passing into the dining/living area there is a table with seating for four, a double size futon with bedding available, two side chairs and a 32" TV. This room also features double doors with westerly lake views and access to a large deck. The bathroom is accessed through the bedroom (queen bed), linens & towels are provided.

A small, electric, wall mounted space heater in the living room is sufficient to 'take the chill out' for early/late season bookings, but should not be considered equivalent to central heat.
Ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom generate a breeze for the hot summer nights.

Ample outdoor space provides areas to enjoy al-fresco dining at the picnic table, barbecuing on the gas grill or relaxing and enjoying the views from the Adirondack chairs at the fire pit.
