We stayed (party of six) in Lake Vista house over Labor Day to celebrate my son's 30th birthday. It was a perfect setting for us. The house is well furnished with everything that we needed, and we greatly enjoyed relaxing on the porch overlooking the lake. We rented 2 kayaks during our stay, which worked out great as we swapped off for trips around the lake. I love swimming with mask, snorkel and fins so on two days, I swam across the lake and back with a kayak escort. We cooked kiełbasa one evening on the propane grill. The grill was in good shape and we had a delicious meal. We then built a fire in the firepit on the lawn near the dock. Blessed with a beautiful evening and an incredible starry sky, we can highly recommend the experience. We were fortunate that the nights were cool so we did not need air-conditioning but could open the windows and enjoy a cool breeze. The owners Jerry and Sherry were great, helping us to make ourselves at home at Lake Vista. They were very responsive in answering questions and expressed their appreciation that as we left, we identified for them a couple minor maintenance problems for them to take care of. Based on their follow-up email to us, they quickly took care of the problems. They certainly seem to care about their guests and about keeping their vacation home in good shape. We had a wonderful birthday celebration and would love to return again. John & Jyl

Amazing venue for Summer Family Reunion

We loved the house and its location on the lake!! Our family enjoyed the abundance of space in the house as well as the beautiful lake frontage and boat dock. Our days were filled with enjoying the lake on a pontoon and canoe that was delivered to the house (by Mountain 2 Island Paddleboard boat rentals - Mike, a super nice and great guy!!). We celebrated two 1st birthdays with lots of play space on the lower level and several lanais around the property. We took nature walks and saw several deers and jack rabbit. The neighborhood is quite and lovely. We enjoyed a fire pit near the boat dock and also did some fishing and caught a 10# catfish and a few others that we released back into the lake. Our children and grand children are already asking to return next summer. We definitely will consider it!! By the way, Sherry and Jerry were very responsive and helpful to ensure the house met our needs. Thank you!

The Lake Vista home was fantastic! Very clean and well stocked with way more than what your average rental usually provides. The view of the lake is breathtaking! The dock is well kept and we spent everyday...all day in the water! The community was quiet and peaceful. This was our first year visiting Claytor Lake and we have fallen in love! We'll be back next year and we'll definitely stay at Lake Vista again. It met our every need. Jerry and Sherry were very attentive and answered all our questions and kept us stocked with firewood. Great vacation!

Fun and sun on the lake

This home is a perfect location for water fun on Claytor Lake. The outside living space is terrific with lots of comfy chairs and tables for relaxing and dining. The covered boat dock allows you to get in the shade on a sunny day and still enjoy being right on the water. The lake itself is quiet. Even during busy hours on Sat and Sun, there was not too much traffic for skiing. We did not bring or rent canoes or kayaks, but towed a ski boat that was easily docked on the property. Non motorized boats would be fun too because this lake is so quiet. There were fishing boats on the water and we fished , with success, right off our dock. The house itself was also comfortable, clean and easily controlled climate. Bedrooms did not have a lot of extra space (except Master). But beds were comfy. House was clean, well furnished with all sundries in kitchen, bath as noted in description. It was terrific not to bring sheets and bath towels. Two working in the kitchen were ok in terms of size, not more than that. The downstairs back bedroom (sleeps 2) is a sensory deprivation room, and for the late sleepers, perfect for dark and quiet - lose all sense of time. We did not utilize the televisions, fireplaces or recreational space and bar downstairs because our weather was perfect and we stayed outdoors. But these also seemed like good amenities. The fire pit is also a nice gathering space in the evenings. The property manager was terrific to deal with, both before arrival and during stay. She is very attentive and responded pleasantly to every question and request. On another note, if you are a road cyclist, don't bother bringing your bike. As frequently is the case at lakes, the roads to get in and out may be narrow, hilly and lots of curves - not safe. This was the perfect location for a family get together and it gets a 5 star rating for location, amenities, cleanliness, responsiveness of manager.

This property is beautiful and there are so many places to enjoy the water view! Sherry and Jerry, the property managers, could not be more helpful and welcoming! They will fetch anything you may need or check on any items where you have questions. There is a huge pantry to store food in the kitchen. The lower level has a large area to gather and watch TV and enjoy the gas fireplace. The mattresses are very comfortable and there are plenty of linens. Everything you need is there, so just enjoy the view! We had a wonderful stay, and it was a perfect retreat for VT graduation.

We rented another property for an outdoor wedding weekend. LAke Vista worked perfectly as the owners were very flexible and responsive when the weather suddenly changed and new arrangements had to be made within 48 hours. The wi-fi was flaky at times (consider this is if you need a place with reliable internet access), but if you are there to have some rest and enjoy the nature - a great place.

Response

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Lake Vista. Although it has been a couple of weeks since your stay, the internet provider has been contacted and internet service is now doing fine. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for the feedback. Fred and Santina St. John

What a wonderful time we enjoyed at the lake. The caretakers and owners were very accommodating and quick to respond to our contacts to them. The dock area was just perfect. Having a large rec room in the basement was great for our grandchildren and the bedroom downstairs worked perfectly for the baby's afternoon nap. The screened-in porch was very nice also. We hoped to stay there again!
