Camp is in furnished and delivered with full kitchen, linens and basics provided and easy to drop in with groceries and bathing suits, but owners live nearby in case of service needs. Pets are negotiable, but carpeted floors and nearby woods may mean it's best to leave Rover at home.

Vermont's Green Mountains offer a wide variety of recreational opportunities for the cyclist, hiker, boater, fisherman, and any outdoor enthusiast. Our little cabin contains 4 rooms and small bathroom w/shower. It is fully furnished with 1 full-size bed, two full-size futon couch/beds (one in living room) and one twin bed. All furnishings are new or only gently used. Dishes and linens are provided. Even books, puzzles, kids fishing gear and 2 canoes,a sunfish sailboat and old rowboat are here to enjoy.

Mark Lives and works in Vermont, usually involved in local theater as well as home remodeling and various other consulting work.

Kalee works in RI but loves to come home to Vermont because it is always like being on vacation here.

Katharine (Kalee) Roberts purchased this cottage in 2004

Long story of course, but the short of it is we love the view, we love surroundings, we love the cottage and sharing it with others who love it too.

For us this is a close get away. Taking just a short time to set up for use and then extremely peaceful and beautiful, whether just sitting by the lake, enjoying a canoe or sail or sitting indoors and hearing raindrops on the roof. We never want to leave.
