~ Romantic Retreat ~ Rest & relax at this unique tranquil getaway.
Exclusive ~ A Bed & Breakfast Cottage for 2 adults. 1 BR & 2 BA
Rent a "room" at an inn for $300++ or rent this private B & B cottage for $300.

Nestled in the heart of Vermont's picturesque landscape, surrounded by rolling hills and dense forests, Vermont Cottage is a charming retreat that embodies the very essence of rustic tranquility. This idyllic cottage is a haven for those seeking respite from the hustle and bustle of city life, offering a serene escape to a simpler, more peaceful way of living.

The cottage stands proudly on a bluff overlooking Lake Amherst, its weathered clapboards and large screened-in front porch blending seamlessly with the natural surroundings. The architecture, in typical Vermont lake cottage fashion, is a harmonious blend of practicality and aesthetics. Window boxes at each window provide cottage charm. Windows open to breathtaking views of the lake and the verdant hills beyond.

Inside, the cottage exudes warmth and a cozy charm. The heart of the home is an inviting, open-concept living space featuring exposed wooden beams and a brick fireplace that crackles with a comforting fire on chilly Vermont evenings. A large wooden dining table sits by the window, offering a perfect spot to savor meals while taking in the serene lake view. The decor is rustic and thoughtfully curated, with local art, vintage boating gear, antique croquet set, serving as both decoration and homage to the cottage's connection to the past and the outdoors.

The galley kitchen is efficient and well-equipped with modern appliances, high-end cookware, fun dishes, platters, and boards to entertain with. The kitchen opens up to the large screened-in porch for a strong connection to nature; and a sense of bringing the outdoors in.

The bedroom is a sanctuary of serenity and indulgence, a delightful oasis of comfort and relaxation. This room exudes a timeless charm, combining the rustic character of the cottage with the indulgence of modern comfort; it offers the perfect blend. The centerpiece of the room is the grand antique bed, its intricate wooden frame displaying the craftsmanship of an old mantle of a bygone era. The bed promises a dreamy night's sleep, dressed in fine linens and plump pillows, inviting you to sink into its plush Puffy mattress for a restful slumber. In the room is a cozy sitting area that welcomes you with a couch and a small table with binoculars and bird books. It's the perfect spot for morning coffee or a leisurely read with a warm throw blanket. Sunlight streams in through the bedroom's large window, offering a beautiful view of the lake and natural surroundings providing a sense of connection to the outdoors.

From the master bedroom, a door leads to a covered deck that beckons with the promise of both relaxation and adventure. The deck features a hot tub and outdoor shower where you can unwind in the warm, bubbling water while surrounded by the sights and sounds of Vermont's pristine wilderness. The hot tub is ideally positioned to take full advantage of the picturesque lake and forest mountain views; a unique and rejuvenating addition to the master suite. In the evenings, with the moonlight casting a gentle glow, the master bedroom's connection to the outdoors allows you to bask in the tranquility of the Vermont landscape. Whether you're soaking in the hot tub, taking an open-air shower, or simply lying in bed, the master bedroom provides an intimate, luxurious escape within the cozy embrace of the cottage.

Spacious lawns wrap around the cottage, offering the perfect place to play games, soak in the sunshine, enjoy a book, or simply revel in the sounds of the lake and the rustling leaves.

The lake itself beckons with opportunities for swimming from the floating dock moored in deeper water, kayaking, or simply lazing on the beach dock, casting a fishing line into the water. The private beach features a rock wall with a fire pit and chaise lounge chairs are provided to enjoy the call of loons, geese, and ducks echoing across the water.

The cottage's surroundings offer endless opportunities for exploration, from hiking in the nearby forested hills to skiing in the winter. Nearby towns are quaint and welcoming communities, where you can explore local shops, savor farm-to-table cuisine, and connect with friendly Vermonters.

In the evening, as the sun sets over the lake and the stars twinkle in the clear Vermont sky, the lake cottage transforms into a sanctuary of peace and tranquility. Sitting by the outdoor fire pit, it's a place where time slows down, where the soul finds solace in the beauty of nature, and where cherished memories are made with family and friends.

Vermont Cottage is a timeless retreat, a place where one can truly unplug, unwind, and reconnect with the simple joys of life. It's a haven for those seeking solace in the heart of nature, where the beauty of Vermont's landscapes and the charm of a rustic cottage create an unforgettable escape.

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.
