We lived in Vt for most our lives and had to move to NY. For 20 years we have enjoyed staying at AIR UNTIL this year! We stayed for our first trip home on Memorial Day weekend and what a SHOCK! The entire bottom has been destroyed! Land has been stripped of trees and grass to open the view to the lake? More like to add more pull through sites which are now full hook-up, no more options on that. Lake view will be dependant on how many other campers are in the way of your view. Needless to say it has lost the VT scenic look that we always loved. We spent all of our visits this year at other campgrounds in the area that gave us that VT feel...trees, grass and a little privacy between the campsites. We stayed during Columbus Day weekend as we needed a full hook up for our last camping trip of the year but requested to be in the upper level that has not been stripped of trees and grass. It was not a bad site but the hook ups were not clear and were very much outdated. Now one good thing about AIR is that they do allow late arrivals and since it takes us 4-5 hours to reach them this is greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, the homey, Vt look and feel has been lost and we will stay there only rarely, if ever.

I am very sorry you have negative feelings about the work that has been done at Apple Island Resort. Some of the changes we have made have been necessary. Beginning in February 2014, the Resort began a state mandated reclamation of a previously working quarry near the front of the resort. In conjunction with the reclamation, we also undertook the refurbishment of the water and electric sites. The reclamation resulted in a beautiful lake view for some sites, which the majority of our guests are excited about, and refurbished water and electric sites that are not so susceptible to flooding. The refurbished sites will remain water and electric only service for the coming season. It is possible those sites will become full hookup if we are able to add additional sites in the area of the reclamation in the future. The majority of the sites at the resort are in the "upper" level with no to very little lake view. We believe we have something to offer everyone: rustic cabins, rental cottages, spacious RV sites, some with a lake view, a destination resort, and the most wonderful guests and residents to relax and have fun with. We will continue to make improvements to the sites and amenities in the resort and attempt to provide a wonderful camping experience for those who choose Apple Island Resort. Marie Hamling, VP

Renters beware that a Apple Island has a policy of charging $5.50 a person for visitors. We checked out 2 days early because we could not afford to have our family come over for lunch or anything without paying for them to visit. This is outrageous given the high rental fees charged for our two week stay.

I attempted to reach you during your stay to discuss the issue related to your guests. Our rates are based on 2 adults and 2 children, which you registered at the cottage. Apple Island Resort offers numerous recreational and event opportunities for which additional day or overnight visitors are charged. Summer residents who own their site or lease for the season may entertain visitors at no charge. Your review is the first we have heard about the mattress in the bedroom. The mattress is a newer one, so this was a surprise. Thank you for mentioning it in your review so we can look into the matter. Marie Hamling, Uniprop, VP

Great Visit

Came to visit friends we had met down south. Had a wonderful visit and did many things around the area -- Stowe for example. Ate out at several places and even sat around playing cards. Nice size site and very clean. Bathroom floors were very wet a lot, but other than that nice place.

I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. Apple Island Resort has remodeled Winooski bathhouse by the pool area and is beginning a remodel of Champlain and Lamoille bathhouses in October. Hopefully, you will find much improved restrooms and showers during your next visit. Marie Hamling, VP

Weekend Family Reunion
0 % of users found this review helpful
My sister and I rented a trailer for the weekend so we could have a cookout with our families and our parents who live at Apple Island during the summer. Cabin was excellent, comfortable and had all amenities needed to enjoy ourselves. We rented golf cart which was great to go back and forth between our parents and our place as well as go to store, pool, golf, etc.. The only negative thing we experienced was that we reserved the golf cart upon arrival and when we went to get it the next morning, it was not charged fully. The plug was impossible to get in for charging so I spent a lot of time trying to get it charged. I called the front desk for assistance and I was placed on hold for a long time. Eventually, I found one of the employees that rides around and he came right over to our place and helped me get the plug in. He was great! Things to do - go to the "point" that overlooks the lake at night when the moon is out - breathtaking! If you want to swim in the lake - go to South Beach - water is beautiful -rocky at first but then pure sand. Great place for picnic!
