A wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5
Still vacationing but had to take time to write a review of our stay so far. The owner, Tom, has been nothing but responsive from day one. The house is perfect for all. I am vacationing with my senior parents, family friend, my cat and dog and this house has met all of our very different needs. Great open layout, nicely stocked cabinets, clean, beautiful views from the deck, 45 second walk to the lake, down a lovely path and a less than 5 minute walk to the Belmont General store which I am quite impressed with how many items they carry despite its small size. They even have a nice little wine selection. The house is situated open enough that you don't feel stranded but private enough that my dog can safely roam, although she typically heads straight to the lake. This house is perfect for those with mobility issues due to the open layout and 4 small steps to get in the house and unloading the car is easy with the private driveway right next to the door. The actual open area by the lake is small but perfect to fit chairs and get the boat and kayak in and out of the water, and really with all that lake how much open land area do you need? There is a nice yard by the house perfect for outdoor activities and you still have lake views. The basement is great for kids and adults alike, however we have been fortunate with beautiful weather so we have been spending all of our time outside when we are not out sight seeing. Location is great with Weston, Ludlow, Rutland, Woodstock and Manchester all less than an hour drive. We have been enjoying breakfast and dinners on the deck and during the warm afternoons have been out by or on the lake. Still hoping to have a camp fire by the lake, just haven't had time so far . This is my first stay in Vermont and it has been lovely and this house has made it perfect. House has wifi which has come in handy since cell service is limited but a daily walk to town allows me to check in for messages and really, while on vacation that is more than enough. I would definitely recommend this house for families (only thing is if you have little ones bring 2 gates for the deck because there are stairs), couples, seniors or a girls get away. The only thing in my opinion that is missing is a hammock for afternoon naps outside. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing and hope I am fortunate to come back next year. And yes, the drinking water is great. Thanks Tom for a wonderful stay at your lovely home. Wish we were staying longer.

A Home Way From Home

  • 5 of 5
We are still on vacation as I write this but we're having SUCH an amazing time that I had to take a minute to write a few words. First of all, the house is very easy to get to and is conveniently located to area attractions--yet is secluded, private and PEACEFUL. We haven't seen another soul since we've been here. We take a daily 5 minute walk with our dogs to the Belmont general store. Great lake views and access with sitting area and fire pit. Rowboat for fishing. We had a BLAST exploring the lake on the kayaks. Lots of wild life, beaver dam to explore on the opposite side of the lake. I loved putting a lawn chair right in the water and relax with a book. Our two dogs couldn't get enough of the outdoors and enjoyed swimming in the lake! The house has a great layout for relaxing and hanging out with family and friends. It is well appointed and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need from nice quality towels and linens right down to all kitchen and bath paper supplies and soaps. Washer/dryer conveniently located in main bath.Spacious and comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms. Very nice jacuzzi and excellent water pressure in the showers. Drinking water in UNBELIEVABLE! So sweet and pure! We had fun having BBQs and playing badminton outside. Loved the huge lower level game room which had satellite TV, ping pong, foosball, indoor basketball, table hockey, board games, puzzles and cards. lots of many different sitting areas. Desk for your laptop. Wifi allowed our son to use his WII and we were able to bring our laptop. We've been so completely content at the house that we haven't felt much of a need to go out. However--be sure to take the short drive into Weston. The Vermont Country Store and Village Store are really great--excellent fudge! Okay, now for the one huge complaint--we only booked one week! Next year we will be back for two weeks! Thanks Tom for an unforgettable vacation!

Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our two dogs stayed a week on Star Lake. We had such a wonderful time. We went hiking, kayaking, shopping, horseback riding. At night we would build a fire in the woodstove and enjoy a glass of wine. This vacation was exactly what we needed! Thank you!!

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5
Positive: House very clean & tidy. Owner responsive. Nice location. Well equipped kitchen. Overall a very nice stay.

Negative: Table Tennis Table is tiny one for small kids. This was one of the reasons we chose this property as the kids love to play & they were extremely disappointed with this. Also kayak actually seemed to belong to next door causing problems. Water frontage for this property is actually very small as the majority is inaccessable.

Owner's Response: Purchased have purchased a larger regulation size ping pong table.The 2 kayaks at the lake are for my guests use. The property has 200 feet on the lake,25 feet is open swimming- boating access-I leave the rest as forrest habitat since this gorgeous unspoiled lake is mostly wildlife refuge.

Late summer in Belmont VT on the lake

  • 4 of 5
Vacationed for 2 weeks at end of summer. This was a delightful home: clean and well-maintained with beautiful small lake views from the livingroom/kitchen with deck.Linens provided, internet access, Many hours spent enjoying the views from the deck and dock.Row boat provided.. Lake not so great for swimming in my opinion. Set conveniently in small town w/ general store and farmer's market. Good location for access to southern and central VT; close to Okema and Ludlow, close also to Weston, Bromley, and many great hikes, parks. One hour's drive to Brattleboro, Bennington etc. Owner was very responsive.
