LUXURY AND PRIVACY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this house for a week in June. The house and property exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed the lake views and sunrises from nearly every room in the house, the deck, screened in porch and the exquisite patio. The house has a great open floor plan and exemplifies fine craftsmanship and custom details. They even have the small details covered, with wifi, washer/dryer, ice maker, central vac and a gas grill all provided in addition to the standard supplies

The lake was crystal clear and the property has a nice very private dock for sunning swimming and kayaking. We also got great use of the firepit that is setup perfectly at the base of the imposing, but inviting rock ledges and offers night views across the darkened lake and out into the star filled sky.

The house is centrally located in the lake area. Stores, hiking and multiple golf courses were all within a short drive for us.

The owner Tim was very accommodating and easy to work with. This property will be at the top of our list for any return trips to the area and I would highly recommend it to others.

SUPERB

What a beautiful cottage. It is well supplied and immaculate inside and out. The lake is pristine and kayaks and peddle boat were a bonus. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone. The owner was very pleasant and easy to deal with. I hope they continue to rent the cottage as we plan to return!

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! DON'T MISS OUT!

Absolutely amazing! Don't miss out!

My wife and I chose Fox Ledge on Lake Willoughby for our honeymoon and couldn't have had a better experience. Tim and Cris are extremely accommodating and made sure that our experience was memorable.

The craftsmanship and detail of the house is truly stunning, and is only further enhanced by the atmosphere and aura of the grounds, the lake, and the scenery of the Northeast Kingdom. The house boasts an open floor plan with a magnificent kitchen and beautiful views of the lake and hills beyond. A large porch (partially screened) and large outdoor slate patio allowed us to relax and basque in the stunning views and lovely weather. Kayaks down by the dock allowed us to tour the lake at our own pace, which was a definite plus. For outdoor enthusiasts, we spent hours cycling the roads of the Northeast Kingdom, enjoyed a local hike, and dined and drank at local hot spots. Even though there were only two of us, this would be an amazing getaway for a family, or two.

Wireless internet was a life-saver for looking-up directions and speakers with an audio jack allowed us to play music throughout the house and hear outside on the patio.

We couldn't have asked for a better or more memorable experience, and look forward to returning in years to come!

GREAT FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a clean, spacious, beautiful home with spectacular views look no further. This home has it all! Our party consisted of 6 adults and 6 kids and there was plenty of room for all of us. The layout of the home is also very accommodating, especially the large kitchen/eating area. We took advantage of the snow and did some sledding with the kids outside on the property as well as snowmobiling on trails nearby. Home is nestled away from the hustle and bustle of town so you can go outside and enjoy nature at its best, but it is still close enough that a quick drive can bring you into town for any needed supplies. The wireless connection at the house allows you to stay connected to the "real world" should you choose, as there is no cable TV or radio. We recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. Whether you are an outdoors person or want to snuggle up by the fire and read, you will love this house. An added bonus to our getaway was that both the owner and the rental agent were a pleasure to deal with and were available if needed.

BEST PROPERTY ON LAKEWILLOUGHBY!

  • 5 of 5
We were traveling to the area for my son's wedding, and we had several couples traveling to the area, so we needed a home that was large enough to accomodate us all. Fox Ledge home fit the bill perfectly! We had 8 adults, and we accomodated everyone perfectly with beds to spare.
So, with respect to the house, all I can say is that it was an amazing experience! The house is an artisanal masterpiece, and the location and views are without equal in the area. The rear balcony overlooks the lake, making it a very inviting place to hang out.
Everything we needed was provided, and Tim the owner was extremely focused on making sure we had a great experience. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone that's looking for a great relaxing vacation in a beautiful setting.

Lake Willoughby, also known as theLucerne of America, is considered by some as being the most beautiful lake in Vermont. Located in the town of Westmore, a short distance off 1-91 and 30 miles north of St.Johnsbury, this body of water is known for its crystal clear water, natural sand beaches and great fishing.

With a maximum depth of 312 feet, this is also the deepest lake in the Northeast Kingdom, which makes it a favorite of divers. It covers 1692 acres and is bounded one one side by the steep cliffs of Mt. Pisgah and on the other by Mt. Hor. The lake was formed 12,000 years ago, when glacier rivers of ice carved out 'U' shaped valleys and spectacular cliffs of granite in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.

The effect is strikingly similar to a Norwegian fjord. About one third of the lake has lakefront properties. There are public beaches at the north and south ends and public access for boaters. The remainder is Willoughby state forest.
