Life IS at its best at our rustic , HUGE 8 bedroom, 4 bath home nestled on 500 private acres in the majestic Green Mountains of Vermont. Justin Lake Lodge offers breathtaking views, not to mention the wonderland of nature that awaits you here.
How about an entire 22 acre freshwater spring fed lake ALL TO YOURSELVES? Yes, this lake is Exclusively YOURS, no one else but your party will be allowed on or near it while you're there.
There's a huge fire-pit lakeside, ( we supply all of your firewood, no extra charge) a large deck built over the lake that has tables, chairs and umbrellas. The lake features fantastic swimming, canoeing and fishing experiences. Have little people? There is a swimming area marked off for them and a sandbox to keep them busy. We have 2 canoes and an assortment of life jackets in the boathouse for your use.
As for the house, we offer 8 large bedrooms & 4 full bathrooms with plenty of open living spaces. 3 large adult bedrooms are downstairs with 2 baths.( One being handicap friendly) 3 adult bedrooms and 3 children's bedrooms are upstairs with another 2 full baths. Upstairs, you will also find a huge play/game room which is also a huge hit with all ages. One side is for the kids 10 and under. That side offers their own TV, sofa, dining table for games, crafts and puzzles.Also, a toy box stuffed with toys for all ages, and a large bookshelf with reading books, coloring books, color crayons, paints, magic markers, and many games, etc. Many parents have remarked how nice it is to have a place that the children love and can keep busy so they can be downstairs ( within earshot) visiting with each other.
The other side of the game/play room features a full size pool table and a ping pong table. This huge room as with all rooms, features many big windows which brings the outside in!
Back to the first floor, The kitchen features a Vulcan restaurant cooking stove with 6 gas burners, double ovens and a big griddle top! This is a favorite of all adults and makes it fun and easy to cook for a crowd. If you don't feel like cooking inside, we offer a large gas grill on the deck. The deck spans about 40 feet of outdoor living and has picnic tables and lots of chairs to be able to sit and visit and relax, night or day.
The house has 2 large Vermont field stone fireplaces. Although not used so much in the summer, they are available with plenty of wood, should you want to use them.
The dining area is huge and seats 25 comfortably if you prefer to dine inside. If not the deck has 3 large picnic tables and lots of seating with a view.
Manchester, VT is a big hit with everyone, its a 15 - 20 minute drive. Great restaurants, outlet shopping, parks and more can be found there. If you don't mind a 1 hr. drive, I suggest you go to an outdoor movie theater, the old time real drive-ins!! There are always movies for all ages playing on the weekends. ( Hathaway's Drive In , Hoosick NY ). There are not many authentic drive-ins left in the US, we happen to have 1 of them. On our 500 acres is a real Indian Burial Ground. Our Caretaker will take you on a tour if you wish to visit. You can hike on our 500 acres or do a bit of hiking the Long Trail, located just a few minutes from the house. Another favorite is a visit to the Vermont Country Store, a fun family outing! I can go on and on about things to do, but the fact is there are so many things to do for entertainment in this area they all can't possibly be listed here!
During your stay, we can arrange for anything you want. Imagine, having help with pre-arrival groceries, maid service, and reservations for everything from ski-lift tickets, to fine dining.
