With 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, this exceptional home can sleep up to 6. As you arrive at the home, you’ll be captivated by the spectacular setting in which the charming cottage is settled, boasting 100 feet of gorgeous white sand beach with Island Pond expanding beyond, creating an incredible scene. Upon entering the abode, you’ll immediately fall in love with the inviting interior, delicately adorned with rustic furnishings and lake decor to reflect the picturesque surroundings. Everything you’ll need to feel as comfortable as possible during your stay is here, including a gas grill, propane gas monitor heating, wireless internet access to keep you connected and a flat screen TV with DVD player - sure to appease your entertainment needs.

Look forward to mornings spent enjoying breakfast around the handsome dining table, gazing out the window at excellent views of the rising sun reflecting off the shimmering lake. After an exciting day experiencing the phenomenal surroundings, return to the property to unwind in the company of a good book as the delicious aroma of a home cooked meal radiates from the fully equipped kitchen, which is complete with a brand new stove and dishwasher, alerting your senses that it’s almost time for dinner. Later, indulge in an evening of immense comfort and coziness, no matter what season it is. If the weather is nice, gather around the outdoor fire pit near the serene water for a night of storytelling with your loved ones underneath the starry sky. If the air is too chilly to spend the evening outdoors, enjoy cuddling up on the plush living room couch to rehash the day’s events or play a board game as soothing warmth radiates from the dazzling electric fireplace.

It may be hard to believe, but you’ll love spending time outside the cabin as much as inside - maybe even more! The exterior of this fantastic home boasts a plethora of outdoor activities that are sure to create unforgettable memories of your New England escape. During the fall, the vibrant colors of the changing trees will take your breath away. You’ll love going on leisurely walks or thrilling hikes through the surrounding mountains while breathing in the refreshing air and admiring the scenery. The fisherman of your group will be delighted to find that wonderful fishing opportunities abound throughout the area, while the hunters will enjoy the spectacular hunting season every October. When the fall breeze turns into a winter chill, look forward to terrific activities such as ice fishing, ice skating, snowshoeing and downhill skiing, which is reachable via a 15-minute jaunt to Burke Mountain Resort or a 45-minute drive to Jay Peak Resort. During these snowy months, hop on a snowmobile and wind through Island Pond’s endless miles of exciting trails, which help it hold the title as the Snowmobile Capital of Vermont!

As the weather begins to warm up during the spring and summer, prepare yourself for countless hours of fun in the sun, experiencing all that the pristine lake town has to offer. Boating, horseback riding and fishing are some of the most popular activities during these warmer months. When the snow melts, the same winding trails that are so great for snowmobiling open themselves up for ATV exploration. During these sun-filled months, swimming in the clear lake waters is a refreshing experience you’ll remember forever. If you’re looking for some excitement, kayak around the shore or take a thrilling ride down the river, which can be accessed right from the lake. Additionally, you won’t want to miss the Friday night excitement in Pavilion Park, which takes place from June until Labor Day and includes live music, grilling, crafting and various vendors. No matter what time of year you decide to visit, this lovely Island Pond vacation rental cottage is sure to show you why it’s called ‘Piece of Heaven.’

Piece Of Heaven Island Pond VT

  • 4 of 5

Have stayed at this cabin many years now. The new owner has made many improvements that have enhanced our stay. However a new picnic table would be desirable and a new shower unit is badly needed. Overall though, place was comfortable and accommodating.

Peaceful, quiet, and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Property was excellent. House was private, extremely clean and had all the ameneties you could wish for. Beach was right outside the door with clean sand and clean water, perfect place for both me and my young children. Water was a slow grade to deep, perfect for my littlest ones. Met the property owners the first evening who were extremely nice and accomodating. Area was beautiful, lots of spacious land and wildlife. Lots of places about an hour or so away to visit: Ben & Jerry's Factory, Santa's Village, King Arthur Flour, Cabot Creamery Outlet and more.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was supplied. Enjoyed our stay at the camp but unfortunately we had no snow so we couldn't ride snowmobiles. The camp was comfortable and that was a good thing because we stayed in everyday because there was no snow to go riding. I would return and would recommend this camp for your stay.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Every thing I needed to stay for the week was supplied. Enjoyed laying back in front of fire pit and watching the loons and the eagle that are residents of Island Pond. The water was crystal clean and I was able to walk out quite far from the beach. My grandkids loved the walking right off the porch and onto the beach. Looking forward for a return trip to Peace of Heaven.
