About Diane Savarese

Retired professors' vacation home.

Diane Savarese purchased this house in 1960

Why Diane Savarese chose Eastern Vermont

Out the back door, you will find a seating area with a fire pit, overlooking the slope down to the lakeside with a small beach and dock. The lake itself provides boating and swimming and boating in summer, and cross country skiing & skating in winter. An extensive network of trails can be hiked, biked or run year-round, although skis or snowshoes might be necessary in the snowy months.

What makes this house unique

Large lawn. Play and boat in the lake while viewed from the enclosed porch and patio. Rope Swing.

A country home located on the banks of Silver Lake, with beautiful lakefront views.

Inside, this unique 4+ BR house offers the comfort of a stone fireplace, multiple kitchens, dining area, and a wide variety of comfortable personal spaces for socializing in groups or one-on-one. The charming locale offers hiking, swimming, boating, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing, starting right outside the door!

This house, carefully tended by the family who has owned it for two generations, is simultaneously spacious and cozy. The four bedrooms are spaced widely for privacy, with three upstairs and one on the ground floor. For your convenience, a bathroom is located on each floor.

The kitchen is well-equipped, with a large refrigerator and extensive shelf storage, suitable preparing a humble breakfast or a feast for a dozen guests.

The centerpiece of the great room on the ground floor is a large stream-stone fireplace, surrounded by couches and rocking chairs. A few steps takes you to the sun room, running the entire length of the house and looking out over Silver Lake.

Peaceful and quiet with lots to do

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on Silver Lake in Barnard, VT. The property was clean and well maintained. I especially enjoyed walking to the nearby State Park and the General Store. Barnard is a very friendly community. The independent bookstore and the antique shops in Woodstock and Queechee were my favorite places to shop. Enjoyed seeing a show at the Barrette Center for the Arts in White River Junction. Hope to stay here again.

Cozy on Silver Lake

  • 5 of 5

It was so serene looking out to Silver Lake in this very special Barnard Vermont property. We will have to return when we can get out on the lake. The house was larger than I imagined from the pictures. It was just my husband and I staying there but our Barnard family of four came visiting and for dinner and the amount of space was very nice.

The house has a lot of charm. There are family photographs and awards hung and on shelves. Such a scholarly, interesting family.. I felt smarter by osmosis.

Sure hope we can return. Thanks, Matteo.

Lovely lake front home with character

  • 5 of 5

My husband's family has been vacationing on Silver Lake for over 20 years, but this was our first time renting this home. We had been admiring the house for years, as it looks so inviting from the road, so we were very excited to finally check out the interior. We were not disappointed! You can tell that this house has been well loved -- there is so much character. Our favorite part was checking out all of the family photographs and memorabilia. It's clear that the owners lived full and rich lives. Every day we found a new treasure to admire! The bedrooms are comfortable, there's one full and one half bath, the kitchen is fully stocked, and there were plenty of books, games and boating equipment. My husband and I stayed with his brother and sister-in-law, and the house was a very comfortable size for the four of us. We were a little nervous about staying with a long term renter in the apartment beneath us, but she was very polite and I don't think we bothered each other at all. We did not get the chance to meet Matteo in person, but he sent emails and text messages about things that were going on in the neighborhood, which was so thoughtful! He was also very professional in terms of replaying to queries promptly and our security deposit was returned with no trouble. We hope to stay here again next summer when we return to Barnard.

Lovely home on Silver Lake

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A beautiful, comfortable home with great views of the lake and easy access to hiking trails and general store. Plenty of room for 6 people and a very well equipped kitchen.

serene lakehouse with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

the property was great. You have a magnificent view from the main room of the house overlooking the lake. The backyard slopes downhill to the lakeshore with plenty of space. there is a patio in the back with a fire pit stand and a small grill

You have access to a canoe and 2 kayaks and even a small sailboat.

The bedrooms were clean, and the kitchen had all the things you might need.

Of note- Matthew the owner stayed in the downstairs apartment attached to the house while we were there. Matthew was kind, helpful, and available if anything was needed.

Warm family home on beautiful Silver Lake

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful, as described by Matteo. We loved the lived-in feel of the place, with family photos and memorabilia throughout the house. We used the grill and ample kitchen to cook big meals each morning and evening. The beds were comfortable for all 3 couples. Luckily the weather was cool enough in the evenings to leave the windows open and feel the night air. The kayaks and canoes were great fun, as was swimming in the lake. Matteo was an excellent host, informing us of local events, grocery and restaurant options, and more. The downstairs neighbor was friendly. We would certainly stay here again!

Owner's Response: Nicole and her family and friends were great. The place barely looked as if anyone had been there when they left. Lovely guests whom I hope will return!
