About Amy Theorin
My family has had homes on this land for 100 years. My great grandfather oversaw the building of the dam and was president or the Rutland Railroad Power and Light.
Amy Theorin purchased this house in 1914
What makes this house unique
We are one of a handful of houses located on the lake. The surrounding land is part of the Green Mountain National Forest and cannot be built on.
Guestbook comments from the owner
“Thank you! You have done everything to perfection. The beautifully landscaped entrance, the welcome package, the to-die-for kitchen, the well-decorated spacious rooms, the screened porch--with a table big enough to fit us all, the views, the games, the DVDs, the foosball table. Our kids had several riotously funny games with that one item.
We will have to come back because we didn't make a dent in trying the games or watching the movies. You have a good selection of both. The legos were a big hit with the junior set and the teenager. Even if it had rained the whole time, we would have been happy. THANK YOU for not having TV. It was nice to hide from the world. My son-in-law needed to work on Friday, so he was pleased to find an office and internet. That plus a cell phone worked perfectly. We also didn't get to try out all the kitchen toys.
All four water craft got extensive usage. I'd never propelled a paddle boat before, but it is fun. I have a bad knee, but I think paddle therapy was good for it. I appreciated the handrails going down to the water. Even some of the youngsters used them on occasion.
I could go on for pages and pages. We felt coddled and cared for and cared about. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.”
