Why Jason and Kaitlyn chose Island Pond
We have been going to Island Pond for many years and found this to be the best location on the lake. It is very quiet and the lake bottom is mostly sandy and the slope into the lake is perfect. There is no overgrowth of weeds in the water and you get a perfect sunrise. We rented here in the past and when it came up for sale we bought it!

Beautiful waterfront home in charming town of Island Pond
Just got back from a week long vacation at this lakefront home in Island Pond. The house has an amazing multi level deck. You could sit out and drink your morning coffee taking in the view or go below and watch the kids and dog (he had the best time I think) jump off the dock. The water was pristine and perfect for swimming, kayaking, or laying lazy in a tub. You could see the bottom of the lake and there were no weeds. The house has 4 bedrooms one that was perfect for the kids. We had a couple of families come to stay for a few nights and there was plenty of room for all the kids in the kids room. The other three bedrooms had very comfortable queen size beds for the adults. There were plenty of linens and towels for all the guests. The living room was comfy to sit with family and watch movies. The house has WIFI and Cable TV. Though we wanted to get away from all that it was a good way to wind down in the evening after sitting around the fire pit making smores. The town was small and very charming. We ate a few times at the Essex house very good food. The Hobo BBQ was excellent too. There is pizza place, ice cream shop and we found Jessie's kitchen who makes the best homemade brownies, cheesecakes and birthday cakes. Hearth and Home was a beautiful store with hand crafted signs and decorations. Bought myself an Island Pond sweatshirt to remember one of the best family vacations we have had. Also remember your passports. We had a rainy day so decided to drive to Montreal for the day it was 2 hour trip and so worth it!! Last but not least the homeowners were so nice to deal with. Thank you Jason & Kaitlyn for sharing your home with us.

An ideal spot for any season!
It was marvelous to be in such a beautiful setting just as the leaves were changing. The house is cozy with an incredible view. Great location for walks in the quiet neighborhood and many nearby hikes for all levels of challenging. My favorite part was sitting on the terrace--when it was warm enough--or on the couch and staring at the gorgeous lake, dreaming of coming back in the summertime! Jason was a terrific host--very accessible and helpful.
such a wonderful time on a beautiful lake!
The house was perfect and location on the lake was ideal. We loved it!
Great property and location very helpful owners
Couldn't be happier with our stay
Excellent Weekend in Vermont
This house is located in what we consider the best location on the lake. The house has had some improvements done that include an amazing deck and dock: perfect for running off and jumping in deeper water. This deck is really what made eating outside great every night while being able to listen to the loons, watch fireworks and to hear the neighbors down the way play their guitars. Friday's nights in the summer are outdoor concerts in town that draw large crowds, there's a great restaurant in town, small grocery store and a gas station with ice cream, pizza and movie rentals. All around a great getaway on the lake. If you're into doing outdoor things- Clyde River will deliver paddle boards and kayaks right to your door.
We are so happy you enjoyed your vacation! Thank you for such an awesome review!!
Wonderful Summer Vacation!
My family and I had a wonderful time at Island Pond. The description of this property was accurate and we found it to suit our needs perfectly. It is in a great spot on the lake, wonderfully situated for views in every direction. It's on a very quiet road and extremely peaceful, but still has easy access to get to the local village in just a few minutes by car. The views are incredible and watching loons and kayaks go by from the beautiful new deck was very relaxing. The beds were comfortable and clean and the property was well-stocked, which was nice. Nearly everything that we brought to use for kitchen, laundry or bathroom (i.e. coffee filters, clorox wipes, etc.) was already there when we arrived. Our contact with the owner before, during and after our stay was very prompt, helpful and friendly. We would definitely recommend this property to a friend and look forward to staying again next summer. While just relaxing was enjoyable, we also visited local stores and restaurants like: Home and Hearth Gift store, Kingdom Market, IP Pizza and Convenience, Dollar General, Simon the Tanner, etc. We also rented paddleboards from Clyde River Recreation, and that was a highlight of our week! Fishing was also good with a number of species caught from kayaks as well as right off the dock from all levels of anglers. Fishing licenses were easy to obtain at the Brighton State Park. All in all, a highly enjoyable week at a beautifully positioned property with a rustic feel that's right on the water and had everything we were looking for, and then some, for a memorable vacation. Thanks to the owners for allowing us to make some wonderful memories at their home.
We thank you for your kinds words and we are glad you enjoyed your stay; we look forward to renters like you and your family! It is a pleasure to help with local attractions and "things to do". For us it is rewarding when someone enjoys the area as much as we do and we are glad your experience was based out of our property. We plan to continue renovating the home so that each year will be better than the last!
