A native of New England. As a child, I spent many summer vacations on Lake Willoughby (not too far from here). There's nothing like starting your day with a cup of coffee and sitting by the lake. Even if it's a bit cool, just wrap up in a blanket and watch the loons and the ducks swim by. Day trips to Stowe and surrounding areas are always fun. But, there's nothing like coming home to Coles Pond. Start up the grill, get out some crackers and cheese, a cool drink and watch the sunset; and you just might catch a glimpse of a moose taking a dip across the water! You never know what you might find here!
Deborah & David Blaisdell purchased this house in 2003
Walden Mountain is nature at it's best and right on the water.
It's beautiful - out in the middle of no where (seemingly). It's great for fishing, kayaking, swimming and relaxing. At the same time, it's close to shopping, Barre Granite Quarry & Museum, St. Johnsbury Atheneum, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream home site & free tour (Waterbury), Cabot Cheese Factory, Stowe, The Von Trapp Family Lodge, Mt. Mansfield Chairlift rides and Alpine Slide, country stores (all sides approach), hiking and more.
Property is situated in a nice area - very nice pond, quiet, with great sunsets. Also as listed - bring in bottled water as the quality is terrible.
Recommendations: Bring a mattress cover -the mattresses have stains, are in terrible shape and are uncomfortable. Dishwasher did not function entire time. Boat stalled in middle of pond several times. Arrived at house and found garbage around property and corn husks tossed over deck into pond and bushes - owners sent someone over to clean up mess.
Like I said, these owners responded very well and showed genuine concern - however, we left early as we felt the house was not clean. They seem new at renting and will learn the business. Perhaps your stay will be better than ours. I left a 3 star rating as the location is one that is very special, out there on Cole's Pond.
