The COVID-19 pandemic that has impacted the world has also impacted us at Rock Point in Burlington. Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to cancel our summer camps for this season. This presents us with an opportunity to invite Vermont families to experience Rock Point as a rustic vacation venue right in the heart of Burlington on the shores of Lake Champlain.
Two of our private cabins are available for single-family rentals so that you can maintain social distancing while you enjoy all that Rock Point has to offer.
Each weekly cabin rental is $650* and offers the following amenities:
6-night rental begins on Friday afternoon and ends on Thursday morning;
Cabins each have one private bedroom with bunk beds + a Common area with bunk beds, table & chairs, and sitting area;
Cabins have a private bathroom with two sinks, two toilets, and shower stalls;
Hot and cold running water;
Wood stove for chilly nights;
Mini fridge, microwave, camping stove in each cabin;
Access to propane grill and stone fire pit for evening campfires;
Access to all Rock Point trails, swimming areas (normally restricted to Rock Point programs), and waterfront picnic areas.
Guests can bring their own linens and towels, or they can be provided by Rock Point for $20/person for the full week.
One well-behaved pet is allowed per cabin; dogs must be leashed at all times on Rock Point Property and trails.
Bookings for weeks on Rock Point are on a first come first serve basis. We are offering this unique “staycation” opportunity starting June 13th through the first week in September. For more information, contact Carrie Williams Howe, Marketing & Communications Director or fill out a request for reservation.
*Discounted rates available for members of Vermont Episcopal Church Congregations or Families who had previously registered for Summer Camp. Please contact us to discuss.
IMPORTANT GUIDELINES DUE TO COVID-19:
Rock Point is working hard to ensure that our facilities meet all guidelines for a safe vacation for your family. Please review these guidelines before booking a reservation to ensure that you can comply with our policies.
Rental Period & Cleaning:
Our 6-night rental time period is designed to ensure that a 24hr period is available to clean and sanitize the cabin before the next family arrives. All cabin amenities will be thoroughly sanitized before your arrival, but housekeeping services will not be available during your stay.
Rental is only available for a SINGLE FAMILY of up to 6 people (please contact us if your immediate family is larger). You may not share your cabin with another family or invite other guests into the cabin during your stay. Other families may visit to hike on the trails or for small gatherings outdoors, but use of our waterfront amenities is limited to your family.
Due to sanitation requirements around COVID-19, we cannot allow multiple families to share common cooking areas, so bear this in mind when meal planning. You will have a small refrigerator, camp stove, and microwave. You will also have use of the outdoor fire pit (on a rotating basis with other families) for cooking; please bring your own pots, pans, dishes, and utensils for outdoor cooking (compostable dishware can be provided at a minimal cost upon request). All dishes should be cleaned outdoors using a provided dish bucket and soap. Please do not use bathroom sinks for dishes. Rock Point is very close to Hannaford’s Market, so access to groceries is very convenient. There are also a multitude of restaurants nearby both in the North End where we are located and in downtown Burlington.
