The cottage is very imposing as you drive up to it, and both floors have lake front windows. To sleep with the windows open, seeing the stars and the silhouette of the Vermont mountains....priceless! Both bedrooms have flat screen TVs and cable. The kitchen is exceptionally stocked, and there were 12 trays of ice cubes made so we were able to immediately enjoy the sangria we brought! We grilled in once, and otherwise enjoyed dining in Rutland, Poultney, Dorset, Castleton, and Manchester. The lake water was warm - we brought floats for our lazy days and I kayaked for the first time when we had more energy. The state park is visible across the lake from the deck, and a great place for swimming. All the deck furniture had covers, so we were never required to sit on wet cushions after a rain. The street is quiet and the neighbors are nice. This was a much nicer rental than one I had the prior year - I hope to be back. Thank you Linda and Keith.
