Unique: We offer a unique experience. There are not many of these lakeside cottage gems left because they just don't build them like this anymore. This is a quintessential 1930's era lakeside cottage which has kept its original charm and updated/renovated to include modern creature comforts. There is no other place like it.
We have a definitive style. We are constantly updating and changing so the bedding pictured may not be the same during you stay.

Space: First floor, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, living room, kitchen, porch (weather permitting Memorial Day ~ Labor Day), and outside areas. This is a much larger cottage, but the other spaces in the home are not rented when you rent this space.

Rural: 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. 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.

Rules: Over 6 people is an added fee of $50/pp/night. Limit 8. Please advise owner.
Local hostel is $55/pp/night in shared bunk room-compare prices.
Vermont has recycling laws we all take part and abide by.
We have outside security cameras.
Breakfast is not provided, but can be for a fee if pre-arranged.
Cleaning fee is for stripping beds, laundry, remaking of bed, light vacuuming, swiffering & dusting.
Guests are expected to leave all areas as neat/orderly as found.
Please be sure to wipe up counter, table, and stove so as to not attract mice and bugs.
Dog fees apply: $25/dog/night.
Guest will receive a contract once booked. Payment = acceptance of contract outline.
Buy trip insurance!

REGARDING COVID-19 - During travel ban time frames affecting your reserved time and if issued by Vermont, all bookings can be rescheduled with no fee and at the rate you paid.

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.

As the virus spreads, its impact on small business is deeply felt. Small family-run vacation rentals is one of these businesses. We strongly encourage you to buy trip/travel insurance. In the event your scheduled time is prevented by Vermont, we will refund.

Stay safe,
Alecia & John

Owner
This lakeside cottage was built it in 1934. It started out as just a tiny place and was continually added on to it and the result is a fun quirky old-time quintessential lakeside cottage. 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.
