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. We value local artisans and proudly display their work throughout the cottage.

Cottage Access :The first floor of this rental is what is available for access.
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. The porch is set up between Memorial Day Weekend and Columbus Day weekend. 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.
Other spaces in the home are not rented when you rent this space.

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

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 wintry Vermont.

Some additional promises/notes for this difficult time:
The house is thoroughly disinfected between stays.
There are plenty of amenities, including toilet paper and paper towels! ;)
Even though Vermont, and especially Plymouth is particularly remote and serene, travel may pose some risks and we want to play our part in #socialdistancing #flattenthecurve. Please be prepared to come directly from your home to ours.

Rental Payment Policy & Cancellation Policy--

• If paying by credit card, 50% of total payment is immediately due upon booking. The remaining 50% is due 90 days prior to commencement. If less than 90 days until commencement of stay, the full amount is immediately due.
• If paying by check or cash for a discount, a $200 non-refundable fee (immediately paid by credit card on the site) is required to hold the dates. The $200 will be applied to the total amount due. If less than 90 days from commencement, payment needs to be paid within 5 days along with this signed Guest Occupancy Agreement.
• No substitutions or trade-in of dates. Dates are final and binding.
• No refunds for extra guest(s) charges if they do not stay.
• Trip insurance- Please check your credit card to see if you have trip cancellation/trip interruption insurance. As part of this Agreement, purchasing trip insurance is highly encouraged. Generally, there are 3 conditions that must be met to purchase a Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR) Rider as follows: 1) Purchase the policy within 10 - 21 days of First Trip Payment; 2) Insure ALL prepaid and non-refundable travel expenses prior to departure; 3) Trip arrangements must be canceled more than 48 hours prior to the departure date.

• Canceled bookings will receive a refund minus $200 + any credit card fees if cancelled 120 or more days from the commencement of this Agreement. There will not be any refund unless the booking is cancelled more than 30 days from commencement date AND the property can be re-rented for that same time and amount.

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.
