Alyssa Norbury purchased this house in 2017

Why Alyssa Norbury chose Westmore

I chose this particular home because of the location, it is so close to our famous and stunning Lake Willoughby, yet just far enough away (less then a mile) to be totally private. I grew up in Vermont, raised my five children in Vermont, my entire family still lives in close proximity of Westmore, my husband and I love the outdoors, this home was perfect for that, its so close to hiking trails on Mount Pisgah, Haystack mountain and mount Hor, and just a short drive to the Kingdom bike trails. My husband is an avid skier, we have our choice of Burke Mountain, Jay Peak, Stowe or the VAST trails for snowmobiling, Island pond is also close by. The property is so serene, you immediately feel relaxed when driving in, we have really enjoyed sitting on the front deck, both in the mornings with our coffee watching the wildlife (bear, deer, moose, turkeys, birds... and the evenings enjoying a glass of wine while watching the sunset, it is a wonderful little hide-away that is still close enough to all things fun and/or needed. (gas, groceries, etc...)

What makes this house unique

The privacy this place offers, along with the sunsets and wildlife we get to enjoy, the neighborhood is quiet, it's a small but wonderful community, this is our own little piece of paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner


February 2018

The entire house was spotless, the kitchen has everything you need from cooking to baking and more. The separate heating for each floor is a big plus. We loved the view of the snow covered backyard, especially in the morning. If you want a winter vacation to remember, this is the place. The entire neighborhood is beautiful, the lake is only minutes away. We would definitely come back for a summer vacation.

Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I truly cannot understate how amazing this house was. Every small detail was thought of to truly turn this into a dream home and we were all sad to have to leave it. We used the house for a ski getaway as it is near a small ski resort but will definitely be looking to go back during warmer weather to also experience the lake.

Home away from home!!! And to top it up the host is FIVE star!

  • 5 of 5

I do not know where to start writing about this beautiful home in gorgeous Vermont. We live in Dubai, a very fast paced, stressful life and we were looking for a hideaway to slow-down, during our quest for such holiday home, we found this hidden gem! Alyssa, the host and the owner of this house, has been more than just a host; who made sure that we reached safely home, ensured that everything was in order for our arrival and through out Alyssa made sure we were enjoying our vacation without any hiccups. As much as house is beautiful decorated, the house is equally well secured with latest automation. The kitchen is well equipped with all appliances and laundry room has got large washer and dryer. The heating system is perfect for cold winter, the roads are often plowed during winter, the kitchen pantries was well stocked, there are enough linens and towels stored in the respective storage cabinets. As I said in the beginning, it is a home away from home. I would certain recommend this home for anyone who seeks quiet holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the crowed cities. We would certainly return to this home again soon.

A special note of thanks to Alyssa from our family. Thank you again for taking good care of us and we hope to host you someday when you are in Dubai :)

Can't wait to return again soon!

Girish & family.
