Alecia Armstrong on Google, Linked-in, Facebook

Alecia inherited this property from her grandparents who built it in 1934. The grandmother was a Brown and a descendent of founding father Nathaniel Bowman Brown who 'camped at the head of Lake Amherst during the Revolutionary War.' He returned to Plymouth after the war and along with other early settlers settled the town of 'Saltash' which is now Plymouth. Alecia believes that Nathaniel may have very well camped near or on the land that she now owns along with her husband and children.

Centrally located between Okemo & Killington, beautiful surroundings, privacy, and definitely not 'cookie cutter' atmosphere. This is a family cottage that is much loved and cared for. When you come to stay you will feel like you are visiting friends and not renting a 'unit' or 'profit mill' property.

Please read reviews written by our past guests.

A perfectly perfect VT experience!

  • 5 of 5
Our west coast family of 4 had the most relaxing and fun getaway at this very charming cottage on beautiful Lake Amherst. This was our first taste of VT and we found it to be delightful, largely due to this cozy and hospitable lakeside cottage. As rental owners ourselves and especially because we were visiting from such a distance, we really appreciated the warm atmosphere, generous furnishings and all the toys made available to us. All we had to do was show up! We kayaked, swam, jumped on the water trampoline, sunbathed on the dock, and played croquet. With two boys a bon fire was a nightly event. We adored the spacious screened in porch for dining, morning coffee and evening cocktails. The view of the lake and surrounding mountains was captivating. The area is also a triathlete's training heaven! The owner was gracious, friendly and delivered as promised and than some. We admired how well cared for and organized the house and grounds are and made a few mental notes for our own cottages on the Cape! We had a lovely dinner at the Woodstock Inn and really enjoyed that town for its shopping and covered bridges. This location is perfectly situated within short distance of cute towns to explore and ski areas to hike or bike but frankly, once settled in it's hard to want to leave the cottage and its perch on the lake! We would recommend this cottage in a heartbeat and have already touted its praises to our friends who are looking for the quintessential New England experience.

Excellent Vacation in a lovely location!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time at Vermont Cottage! It was the perfect accommodation for our families with something for everyone, from lounging on the hammock to jumping off the dock to catching breakfast every morning. Our friends and family all commented on the quality of the house and the evident care and pride of the owners, how well stocked the house was (complete with a knife sharpener, which, if you've stayed in other self-catering places, you'll appreciate what a rarity a sharp knife is) and how thoughtful Alecia and her crew are to to ensure that all the creature comforts are easily accessible. Our families have stayed in a wide variety of self-catering places all over Europe and the UK and this house was, unanimously and by far, the best pick we've ever made. We had a lovely week and look forward to another visit!

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at the cottage and could not have been happier. The location was perfcect spot just to relax and enjoy the lake and trails. We took our two dogs and it gave them the chance to run in the huge yard and play in the lake. The house was just like being at home. It has everything you need and then some. Yes the care taker was there but we barely saw him and it did not change our decision to come back. I was very happy with the rental.

Owner's Response: There has been a lot of confusion about this review. There will be absolutely, positively nobody else on the property except you, the renter. The entire cottage is for rent as a private rental. It's a spacious 5 bedrooms plus an upstairs screened-in sleeping porch with 2 double beds, so actually 6 bedrooms. It's a gem of a cottage! There are 4 bathrooms.

Great for girls weekend.

  • 5 of 5
This was our third visit for a girls' weekend and we can't say enough good things about this cottage! We love to eat and the kitchen is so wonderfully stocked and organized with everything anyone needs to enjoy good days 7 nights of eating. Not only that, this place has "personality." It really is NOT your standard rental where you feel you are in a rental mill for profit. No, this cottage makes you feel like you are visiting your great aunt Kate or someone like her and you are provided with all the comfort amenities of home. Everything we needed was there. It's clean and well-cared for, not to mention great showers, GREAT porch, nice boats, fire pit and a wonderful beach. I have not felt this relaxed in a long time. Probably because I slept so well in beautiful sheets and comfy comforters. Kayaking all day and bon fires at night were helpful too. Truly a gem of a cottage. Next year we are bringing the men and our dog!

Just perfect for our wedding!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and our two dogs stayed here for a week before our wedding at the Hawk Inn. It was the perfect setting for us to relax and enjoy ourselves and still be very close to the Inn. We liked it so much, we extended our stay after the wedding. Kayaking every day, bonfires at night! Alecia and Vandy are a pleasure to work with. We plan to make the cottage a regular vacation spot. It feels like home.

Lovely Lakeside Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We have many wonderful memories of the Vermont Cottage....The owner is easy to communicate with and has continously updated the house throughout the years. The location is fantastic for both summer and winter sports (located a short drive from either Okemo Mt or Killington Mt). Probably our favorite "convenience" is the face that there is a TV in every bedroom! The house is always immaculate and organized. Alicia always treats us as returning friends, rather than "renters".
