Overview

November Special ~ Rent 3 nights and get the 4th night free. Just so you can relax and prepare for the busy holidays! NOVEMBER 6-20, 2022.
Cozy, cute....secluded private cottage perfect for 2.
I BR & 2 BA
After spending 2 nights in a hotel that looked at a brick wall and was over $300/night, we came back to Vermont with the idea to rent out our master king bedroom PLUS living/dining area, full kitchen, with a fireplace & fire pit, and hot tub! ......AND canoe in season! That's a great deal!!
Don't forget the dog!
Private, cozy, and nice!
Rustic charm, modern amenities.
Quirks included.
Between Killington & Okemo Mt areas 15 minutes.
Killington will be open until June! Re-opens in November!
Woodstock 30 minutes - Ludlow 10 minutes.
Overlooks Lake Amherst with pleasant views.

Canoe included!
Kayak rentals available-please inquire
Breakfast is not included, but we will leave you coffee & creamer....just let us know what kind of creamer and we will be sure to have it there for you.

Need to get away? Even if it's a couple of overnights, we have a great opportunity for you. Come explore cute New England towns like Woodstock, Weston, Ludlow, and beyond!

Not your cookie-cutter home. We offer a unique experience that will help you take a step back in time. There are not many of these gems left because they just don't build them like this anymore. A quintessential 1930s-era lakeside cottage that has kept its original charm and has been updated & renovated to include modern creature comforts. Vintage vibe.....There is no other place like it.

You will have access to 1 bedroom on our main floor and 2 bathrooms.
Full use of the living room, kitchen, and porch weather permitting.
Please note the porch as pictured is available May - Columbus Day Weekend.
You can still sit on the porch in the winter if you wish, but may prefer the hot tub!

In the winter the dining room seating is moved inside.
1930s-era cottage has some quirks that are charming.
Bathrooms are charmingly small and efficient.
You will have the entire property to yourselves during your stay.

Getting around

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 to predict when ice will form. We will supply the salt and sand.
