MANY HAPPY MEMORIES MADE HERE! HUGE FAMILY FRIENDLY HOME WITH PRIVATE LAKE!

Londonderry House Rental Photos and Description

8 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 500 wooded acres, PRIVATE LAKE, sleeps 20 comfortably

Life IS at its best at our rustic , HUGE 8 bedroom, 4 bath home nestled on 500 private acres in the majestic Green Mountains of Vermont. Justin Lake Lodge offers breathtaking views, not to mention the wonderland of nature awaiting you here.

How about an entire 22 acre freshwater spring fed lake ALL TO YOURSELVES? Yes, this lake is Exclusively YOURS, no one else but your party will be allowed on or near it while you're there.

There's a huge fire-pit lakeside, ( we supply your firewood, no extra charge) a large deck built over the lake that has tables, chairs and umbrellas. The lake features fantastic swimming, canoeing and fishing experiences. Have little people? There is a swimming area marked off for them and a sandbox to keep them busy. We have 2 canoes and an assortment of lifejackets in the boathouse for your use.

As for the house, we offer 8 large bedrooms & 4 full bathrooms with plenty of open living spaces. 3 large adult bedrooms are downstairs with 2 baths.( One being handicap friendly) 3 adult bedrooms and 3 childrens bedrooms are upstairs with another 2 full baths. Upstairs, you will also find a huge play/game room which is also a huge hit with all ages. One side is for the kids 10 and under. That side offers their own TV, sofa, dining table for games, crafts and puzzles.Also, a toy box stuffed with toys for all ages, and a large bookshelf with reading books, coloring books, color crayons, paints, magic markers, and many games, etc. Many parents have remarked how nice it is to have a place that the children love and can keep busy so they can be downstairs ( within earshot) visiting with each other.

The other side of the game/play room features a full size pool table and a ping pong table. This huge room as with all rooms, features many big windows which brings the outside in!

Back to the first floor, The kitchen features a Vulcan restaurant cooking stove with 6 gas burners, double ovens and a big griddle top! This is a favorite of all adults! it makes it fun and easy to cook for a crowd. If you don't feel like cooking inside, we offer a large gas grill on the deck. The deck spans about 30 feet and has picnic tables and lots of outdoor chairs to be able to sit and visit and relax, night or day.

The house has 2 large Vermont fieldstone fireplaces. Although not used so much in the summer, they are available with plenty of wood, should you want to use them.

Manchester, VT is a big hit with everyone, its a 15 - 20 minute drive. Great restaurants, outlet shopping, parks and more can be found there. If you don't mind a 1 hr. drive, I suggest you go to an outdoor movie theater, the old time real drive-ins!! There are always movies for all ages playing on the weekends. ( Hathaway's Drive In , Hoosick NY ). There are not many authentic drive-ins left in the US, we happen to have 1 of them. On our 500 acres is a real Indian Burial Ground. Our Caretaker will take you on a tour if you wish to visit. You can hike on our 500 acres or do a bit of hiking the Long Trail, located just a few minutes from the house. Another favorite is a visit to the Vermont Country Store, a fun family outing! I can go on and on about things to do, but the fact is there are so many things to do for entertainment in this area they all can't possibly be listed here!

During your stay, we can arrange for anything you want. Imagine, having help with pre-arrival groceries, maid service, and reservations for everything from ski-lift tickets, to fine dining. Want the perfect Vermont wedding? We will help with providing the official, catering and planning. We can offer local secrets on what to do, where to go, or even help you to hire a local chef to create a tailored feast for your family and friends. This is the PERFECT vacation home for large groups. No need to worry about the neighbors because there are none. Children welcomed!! Please visit our website ( listed in this ad) for bedroom configs and more info. about Justin lake Lodge.

Please note: The 8 weeks of summer and all ski season holidays and weekends often book out months in advance. Reserve your time today to avoid disappointment!

GREAT TIMES WITH MANY FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
Justin Lake Lodge was very well kept and accommodating for all of my friends. During the day we spent most of our time at one of the many near by ski resorts, mostly Stratton. The friends who did not attend the trips to the ski resorts had plenty to do at the house, both within the house itself and outside snowshoeing to the lake and cross country trails that never end! During the nights we all spent around the huge fire place or upstairs playing pool or ping pong. Overall our stay was great and plan on making it a yearly event!

TERRIFIC HOME FOR A LARGE GROUP

  • 5 of 5
We loved this home. We were a group of 4 families with children ranging from ages 10-17 and we fit comfortably. The house was spotless with a well-equiped kitchen and space for 22 people. We particularly enjoyed the large fireplace and seating downstairs. The owner/agent was very responsive and easy to deal with. We arrived shortly after a heavy snowstorm and the roads and driveway were well-paved, providing easy access to skiing at Stratton, a 20 minute drive away.

22 PEOPLE ENJOY AND RELAX IN VERMONT SETTING

  • 5 of 5
My (extended) family and I put the description of this house to the test and the house passed. The rooms--which were divided up/down and by size very nicely--were very comfortable; the kitchen was perfect for cooking (homemade sauce from scratch, steaks, corn, etc) for 22 people; the dining room perfect for setting up 3 large tables and 22 chairs; the upstairs "great room" just right for playing pool and ping pong.

The lake was tranquil and served as just the right frame to spot some hawks and other local wild animals. The outside deck was somewhat aged and need of repair, but there were no complaints from my group; this is merely an observation.

The best feature of the house and property is the location: excellent for local parts of central lower Vermont, with shopping only 20 minutes from nearby Manchester; a local cheese and bakery; horse ranches up Route 7; etc. etc.

Bottom line: it's not just a house. It's a "lodge" in all respects. Go and enjoy. Mike (New York)

GOOD OPTION FOR A CROWD

  • 4 of 5
Just arrived home from a week here. The house is very clean and fresh feeling -- very spacious and bright. HUGE group rooms upstairs and down allowed adults and kids to enjoy themselves without being crowded. The kids loved that there was a room for the four youngest cousins to share. Quite ample bedroom and bathroom space, though it was hot and there were not enough fans for the three warm nights. One bedroom was very dark, with only one overhead dull light. We hunted down a lamp in the closet, but had to go buy lightbulbs and lights for the nightlights, and stand the lamp on the floor as there were no bed tables in that room. VERY specific instructions were left not to move ANY furniture, which surprised us. It was very expensive overall, so much so that we are highly unlikely to do it again (it was for a special occasion) and the cleaning costs at the end of the week were excessive, given that the only thing that needed to be done was the towel and sheet laundry . . . Not well supplied in the kitchen at all . . . we had to go buy vegetable peelers, and run the dishwasher 2-3 times a day to have enough dishes to get through the next meal. A house that sleeps 20 should be set up to feed 20, it seems!! Happy to find an extra fridge in the basement, given the size of our group -- but that fridge was a bit scuzzy. The lake is a buggy walk away from the house -- perhaps 1000 feet?!? Not a bad trek. Boat house ok, dock nice. Kids (aged 9-18) loved using all the "stuff" in the boat house. Loved the deck on the house, though the mechanical people in the crowd felt it was weak structurally, and said they would never put a crowd on it.

Caretaker very helpful, friendly. Grill was out of fuel upon arrival -- he replaced immediately. Washer/dryer did not work well, but not discovered until late in the week, so unsure what response would have been.

STRICT on arrival and departure times . . . Rental agent called night before departure to say she would be over at 9:30 in the AM to do a walk through . . .

Off-site, kids had fun at Bromley Thrill Zone, hiking, hitting the Vermont Country Store. Well-stocked Clark's IGA grocery store is not far at all (about a mile from the intersection of Little Pond Road and Route 11), and there was a decent pizza shop in that same parking lot.

Owner's Response: This property is well stocked. It has dishes enough for 22 people, but you do have to run the diswasher before the next meal. There is a vegetable peeler as well as plenty of mixing and serving bowls, silverware, knives, a good assortment of pots and pans, baking dishes, and lobster pot. We offer a coffemaker, coffee grinder, toaster oven, toaster, blender/food processer, microwave, cutting boards, etc, all in a brand new kitchen. We also have a restaurant stove with 6 burners, 2 ovens and a huge grill top that makes it easy to cook for a large crowd.There are extra lightbulbs in a drawer in the kitchen. There are plenty of linens, although you may have to wash them if you are staying long.

The room missing the bedside table was found in another room, hence one of the reasons for asking the furniture not be moved.

This is Vermont. In order to enjoy it's serenity and beauty on our 500 acres of private, wooded land, you do need to bring a supply of bug spray if you plan on being in the woods, especially in July.

The extra fridg. in the basement is very old and not in the best shape. It is meant to be used for extra beverages, not food.

Unfortunately, we do have to be strict on departure times during the summer months. We have only a window of 6 hours to clean before the next party arrives. The statement " only the sheet and towel laundry neded to be done" is far from the truth. We take great pride in offering a home that is spotless. It takes a team of 2-3 housekeepers the entire 6 hours between the 10 a.m checkout time and the 4 p.m. arrival time to clean 8 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, and all the living areas, as well as do the laundry and clean the kitchen.

There was nothing wrong with the washer other than it was off balance, which also caused longer drying times. This was taken care of immediately ( as is everything else brought to our attention) by our fantastic caretaker.

The deck was checked recently and found to be safe. We will certainly have it checked again!

All in all, Justin Lake is one of the best spots to vacation in the Northeast, all year round!! We have many repeat visitors, which attests to the fact that we work hard to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. Where else can you find a house this large that comes with it's own private lake on 500 acres of beautiful land yet close to tons of amenities such as ski areas, golfing, shopping, water activities, hiking, biking, snowmobiling, theme parks and much more?
