The Cottage at Green Pond is a cozy, rustic cottage located on a private, peaceful mountain lake (no motorboats). Just steps away from the lake, there's no better setting to enjoy your favorite water sports -- swimming, fishing, or boating. Or, just relax on the screened in porch, on the deck overlooking the water or soak up the sun on the dock. The two bedrooms offer a queen bed and in the other bedroom a twin and full size beds. Three kayaks, a canoe, rowboat and paddle boat are available for you to use. At night, have a fire in the outdoor fire pit and roast marshmallows.
The cottage was purchased by our grandparents in 1963 and has been enjoyed by our family ever since. It's our little piece of paradise, perfect to get away and relax.
Ben Baker, Sally Baker purchased this cabin in 1963
Quiet location with about 16 cottages on the lake. Perfect for relaxation. For families with children this is a great place to swim and to fish. You can catch a sunfish (guaranteed) right off the end of the dock or jump in a boat and catch some bass! Going out early in the morning with a cup of coffee on the lake in a kayak, just floating around is a great way to start the day, or to end the day
Memories are made at Green Pond. The simplicity with the amenities of a home make this a great place to recharge and unplug.
This was our second visit to Green Pond. We had a very relaxing time. We thing our dog, Maya, is beginning to like the canoe! Many species of birds again this summer – new to our list for here, is the Double Crested Cormorant and Red-Breasted Nut Hatches.
Thank you for sharing such a special place.
We had a wonderful week on Green Pond. The kids had an amazing time paddling around the lake on the various boats available to us. We fished and swam and enjoyed a peaceful, relaxing vacation. The cabin had everything we needed. The dogs had a blast too. We played board games, did a puzzle and watched movies when it rained. We loved listening to the sound of the rain on the tin roof! We spent a day at Six Flags, not too far away, went blueberry picking and jumped off the rocks in the nearby quarry. We had a great time and hope to go back next year!
The lake and cabin are both amazing! Ben and Sally provide everything.....everything!!! From games for adults and kids to a wall of books, canoes/pedal boat,fishing rods, local information, 2 grills (gas and charcoal!). A place we stayed at a year before doesn't even come close and I am so sorry I didn't visit Green Pond first. I wasn't sure of the location but took a chance and its close to everything but also very private. Local attractions for children was an easy & beautiful 30 min drive to Glen Falls and VT is just around the corner. The lake is clean, peaceful and beautiful! There are different levels to sit on and enjoy the view. Ben and Sally have made this cabin very welcoming. We were overwhelmed with what they offer. They are also very pleasant to speak with and follow up with anything that we may have needed during our stay. Our lab, Java, enjoyed swimming so much and I loved having my morning coffee on the dock playing ball with him. Our children enjoyed their time especially the fishing from the dock! Thank you Ben and Sally for allowing us to have a vacation which included all of our members! I look forward to another visit at Green Pond and making more family memories! I have to mention your neighbor Gail, lovely and kind. You are all very lucky to have this piece of paradise! Thank you for sharing!!!! The Gee-Espositos
Fabulous accommodations just perfect for our small family of 2 (plus 1 happy Lab ;-). Can easily accommodate another 3. Kitchen well equipped and clean plus new grill just perfect. Delicious spring water right from the well! And the lake. . .no reason to leave this place! Quiet and serene -- had 1 day with some music-blaring guests across the lake that was a bit of a bummer, but made up for it with the lake almost to ourselves for every other day we stayed at "camp". Kayaks and pontoon paddle boat well utilized every day. Great hiking on D&H RR line and Merck Mountain both in VT. Can't wait to come back and bring friends. Our dog, Roxie, was in pure dog heaven, and we never knew she was a distance swimmer! We give it an A+ for our needs :-)

Thank you so much for sharing your cottage ! We really enjoyed all the boats and it was great not having to haul my own canoe and row boat ! I loved the cottage as it brought me back to my childhood vacations. It was a new experience for my wife and daughter and they both enjoyed their stay. We visited Manchester VT, and found some excellent private store / restaurant businesses , (i.e. not Walmart , lol). Absolutely beautiful country side.
Thank you again for your hospitality !

We had a wonderful time at the Cottage. Our 5yo daughter loved the dock, the toys and games. Our dogs had a great time chillin on the porch or by the pond.
We are so appreciative of the The Bakers to welcome our whole family here. They are very helpful and the welcome they provided was too-notch. Finer hotels don't always perform at this level of hospitality!!
All the info Is right on. This IS a place to get away from it all.
We unplugged during our stay and it was magical.
We will definitely come back again!
This was our third stay here (and won't be our last). You can't find a more relaxing place to get away from it all. You only need to bring food, towels and sheets. Everything else is already there. This year, I finally took one of the kayaks out to fish - it was amazing! Everyone should get to experience Green Pond.
