There was no Satellite or cable TV and no cell reception, and that was fine with us! My wife and I and our two teenage kids spent an incredibly relaxing week on Mirror Lake. The canoes and kayaks were used almost every day, as was the fire pit down by the lake. I caught blue gills, smallmouth and pickerel either right from the dock or while out on the canoe. We also saw a bald eagle twice grabbing a bite to eat right out of the lake.
The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. And thanks to the card and board games we had something to keep us occupied at the end of the day. Local dining was excellent. Sarducci's in Montpelier was fantastic. We of course hit Ben & Jerry's which was only 30 min away. A trip to Burlington for shopping and lunch was a great way to spend the day too. The Farmhouse Tap & Grill gets everything local (as do most restaurants in VT) and I had one of the best burgers ever at the Taphouse.
Doug was very responsive and communicated regularly which was a plus for us after a rather poor experience with another house in VT last year. Overall we highly recommend the Mirror Lake house and will certainly be returning!
