    Vandore Family at Fourpeaks.

They swim in the river and discover the natural beings around them. They also share in the Summer magic of Burlington, across the lake.

    Guest Book Entry:
    "We went often to the beach spot across the road, where Sara and April and John for that matter paddled in the shallow swift current. Benji fell in the river by accident and then preferred to lounge in the tube!"

    "We also found the rapids at the AuSable forks , very entertaining. The children really enjoyed playing amongst the rocks and in the white water. We found lots of frogs and fishes which delighted us all. Sara and April had great fun swimming out to a large rock which appeared in the centre of the river just up-stream from the falls, when the water level dropped. We went there three times during out stay. A real hit with the children."

    John and Janet admire the view of Lake Champlain from the shore at Burlington, VT. "We enjoyed the ferry journey to Burlington. We had a very pleasant day. We walked through the town which is interesting and full of life, encountering a live rock concert taking place along the main pedestrian street. We also walked the length of the Champlain shoreline which is laid out with a cycle track--beautifully carved rocks along the shore. We particularly enjoyed the ferry ride which takes almost an hour. The ferry boats are quite quaint. You can eat on there and get an alcoholic beverage if you want."


    Monarch butterfly feeding on milkweed plant. A common sight in late Summer. Monarch butterfly resting on leaf. Dragon fly on meadow flowers on the farm. Chipmunk rests for a moment by his front door under the camp deck. "At Fourpeaks we did some walking though you could hardly call it trekking. We enjoyed the quiet and the dark nights. I seem to have taken quite a lot of wildlife photographs but it was great to be able to do so. One day the air was filled with butterflies and dragonflies. Fourpeaks chipmunks (which seem to live under the small deck outside camp) are very much less afraid of humans than the ones in our town. The chipmunk was very generous with his time and posed quite happily for the camera."

    A place to rest and take in the mountain scenery around. April and Sara take on an evening stroll on the farm and look over the tractors. Martin in one of Fourpeaks three old jeeps (wood splitter behind). "We are new to America having come to live in New Jersey in March 1997. We tried to take a holiday in the Adirondacks last summer but made a very bad choice of Lake George which we left as soon as we could. Our stay at Fourpeaks was great and was more like the Adirondacks we had been led to believe existed. We will certainly come again. Just one suggestion. We met some pretty nice people at your house on the Friday. We have had some of them round to our house since. Our children really enjoyed playing together and it would have been nice to meet these people earlier in our stay. Perhaps you could hold your very pleasant wine evening earlier in the week so that like minded people could share the enjoyment of your facilities together."

    "Thank you for your kind hospitality. We had a great holiday, including Benji. Our neighbours-- the Saraswats--have booked to come stay in the old barn I believe and we hope to do so in the not too distance future."
