About The Owner
I own another wonderful log cabin just 25 miles north of this gorgeous place! We have been renting it for 13 years. We have many requests every year for a larger rental for larger families and this is it! Join us at our Lodge! Where nature is 'everywhere'
The Owner purchased this lodge in 2014
Why The Owner chose Middlebury
I have ALWAYS LOVED this part of Vermont! Just gorgeous! And when this opportunity came up to actually be able to buy a place here we were thrilled! With the river just across the road and being near the lake and skiing it was a perfect fit for our large extended family! and the beauty of the area plus the Mossalamoo recreational are right there and being so close to Middlebury also made it a perfect fit. It is a fun place! which was what we were looking for, we have 5 kids and 10 grand children and we wanted a vacation home that we could bring each family to, close to the river and skiing in the winter. This was a perfect for us and we thought many other families might enoy it to.
What makes this lodge unique
When I first drove up my mouth dropped open! It was LOVE at first sight and I had not even entered the house yet! For years I had taken this scenic Route and always thought what a beautiful part of Vermont it was. BUT upon entering this home my heart started to race! all the gorgeous details and Fun the builder had poured into this home. The wonderful surprises! like the stone work inside that drops two floors into the livingroom! and the SECRET ROOM! just to start! It was like walking into my dream fun vacation home! yet a it is warm inviting and HAPPY. All the windows and light, And just the FEEL made me say YES! And the AREA so beautiful! We feel blessed!
