We offer a unique experience. There are not many of these lakeside cottage gems left; they just don't build them like this anymore. A quintessential 1930s era lakeside cottage which has kept its original charm and updated/renovated to include modern creature comforts.

You will have access to 2 bedrooms on our main floor and 3 bathrooms.
This 2 bedroom offer is within a large lakeside cottage. The 2 bedrooms are available to you on the ground floor along with the entire first floor, outside grounds and beach. Full use of the living room, kitchen, and porch weather permitting. There will not be anyone else there while you stay. Please note the porch as pictured is available Memorial Day Weekend- Columbus Day Weekend - May-October only. In the fall/winter the dining room seating is moved inside.

Guests have access to the living room, kitchen, and porch weather permitting.
The porch is set up between Memorial Day Weekend and Columbus Day weekend.
The first floor of this rental is what is available for access.
Other spaces in the home are not rented when you rent this space.

Owner may or may not be on premises.

Rural area. Peaceful walks on paths, trails, and backroads. Property overlooks entire length of Lake Amherst in Plymouth, Vermont. Snow tires and winter boots a must! Close to Ludlow and Woodstock.

No public transportation. Guests will need own vehicle. If winter, snow tires are a must, not all season radials. AWD or 4-wheel drive a bonus to getting around in wintery Vermont. Adding to this, please wear proper winter boots and not "city boots" on your feet or you will fall.
You are responsible to sanding and salting your walkway; there is no way we can predict when ice will form. We will supply the salt and sand.

Over 4 people is an added fee of $50/pp/night. Limit 6. Please advise owner.
Vermont has recycling laws we all need to abide by.

We love our family cottage. My grandparents built it in 1934. It started out as just a tiny place. My grandfather continually added on to it and the result is a fun quirky old-time quintessential lakeside cottage. Sometimes I scratch my head and ask myself, "What was he thinking?!" It's a really fun place with plenty of space for privacy and a lot to do in the cottage and around the area! We like to rent to nice honest people who will take good care of it.
