'Lakeside' cottage sits directly on water; is a honeymooners-style studio with a queen bed, bathroom, small kitchen and living area with a spectacular view of the lake and mountains. There is a day-bed with trundle, sitting area, and quaint bistro - dining area. Kitchen comes nicely appointed for most cooks. There is also an outdoor shower, an air conditioner and space heater. Please note that WiFi signal is limited in Lakeside cottage and being rural Vermont, the cellular phone signal is weak. There is a Bose wave stereo/CD player - no TV and no phone in Lakeside.
2 Gas grills, outdoor seating areas, campfire pit, private dock with ladder, swim out float, kayaks, canoes, rowboat all come with rental. Pontoon boat rental is available for extra charge (please inquire)
The rental includes both cottages. Alpine' has a classic cottage feel, with knotty pine and hardwood floors, screen door and high ceilings. 'Lakeside' is perfect for two and or to host overnight guests. Or, use Lakeside for a 'changing room' while gathering down at the Lake, make lunch there, take a quiet nap there, play a board game with the kids, or maybe use it's space for yoga or meditation. We think you will love the charm of Lakeside and the functionality of Alpine. Both cottages come tastefully furnished with a mix of antiques and modern comforts.
Parking spot for 4 cars is up by Alpine. We have a Vermont-Cart to help get your gear down to Lakeside. Please note that the property has a moderate-sloped pitch down towards the Lake. Also a 'woods-y' topography (exposed roots, rocks and pine needles etc) - It is not suitable for infants or toddlers. That said older children will love the Camp feel. Please feel free to contact the owner with any concerns.
