'THE DUCK & DOG' GREEN MOUNTAIN RETREAT

Lake Dunmore Lodge Rental Photos and Description

10 acre property in National Recreation Area of the Green Mountains

This mountain retreat is nestled inside the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area of Vermont's Green Mountain National Forest. It sits down in a hollow on 10 private, densely wooded acres at the end of a narrow, canopied gravel road one mile from the closest public thoroughfare.

When you are here, you will find yourself in the heart of wilderness surrounded by a forest of ash, cherry, sugar maple, beech, birch, hemlock, hickory, northern red oak, spruce, balsam fir and white pine. You may also be visited by the occasional squatter such as black bear, moose, deer or flock of wild turkeys.

The property is strategically built on granite ledge on land that slopes toward a babbling brook and an old overgrown logging road (great for hiking and spotting wildlife).

It is a crossroads for wildlife and extensive bird activity not only because there are no nearby roads or neighborly activity, but because of its extensive granite ledges all along the brook's ravine walls where animals search for forage and take shelter.

The house will comfortably sleep 6-8 people. It consists of 2 BR each with a queen bed, and an additional spacious sun-filled loft leading out to a cedar deck with breathtaking foliage views. Loft includes a convertible full-size lounger and queen-sized air mattress with additional floor space for sleeping bags. It has 1.5 baths, plus a refreshing outdoor shower.

The entire kitchen was just renovated and includes new stainless steel appliances as well as all kitchen utensils and dishware, such as a cuisinart grind & brew coffeemaker, mini food processor, blender and toaster oven.

Enjoy sitting on the new front and back cedar decks or around the fire pit absorbing the beauty and sounds (many wild birds) of the tree canopy rising from the babbling brook.

Included in the rental are all amenities such as high speed wireless internet, DISH network, local and domestic long distance calling, DVD player, ipod docking stereo, bedding and towels. There are board games and some lawn games available, as well as the use of two adult and one children's bicycle.

With roots in CT and CA and as Middlebury College graduates, central VT was an annual excursion. When looking for a retreat, we discovered this remote lodge and immediately knew it was the place for us. The ‘duck and dog’ offers tranquility and isolation yet is within a short scenic drive to “civilization” – the well-known Waybury Inn; Middlebury’s Breadloaf Campus and Snowbowl; Robert Frost Country; Brandon’s quaint, picturesque downtown; Branbury State Park and the Falls of Lana; and Silver Lake which can only be accessed by foot or bike, thereby preserving its peaceful surroundings. It’s the perfect combination of access and isolation – one that fits our lifestyle to a tee.

Renata Hron Gomez purchased this lodge in 2009

We searched within the Ripton (East Middlebury), Hancock, Rochester and Goshen quadrant and found the duck and dog. It's exclusive location inside the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area and proximity to Robert Frost country and other area towns and attractions was very attractive.

This is outdoors at its finest. Because of its isolated location, when you are here, no one will find you or see you. There is no need to drive anywhere to enjoy the wilderness as you can simply walk out your door to enjoy any activity. The area is dense with trees, shrubs and glacier rock formations that exude a serene and tranquil environment.

DUCK AND DOG IDYLLIC VERMONT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Duck and Dog in Goshen (near Brandon), Vermont for a week. The house is ideally located right in Moosalamoo Recreation area with lots of beautiful hiking and mountain scenes galore right at the doorstep. The house is "cabiny" without being kitche and overdone (which matters to me!). The owners have really done an excellent modern cabin renovation. Everything was very clean and completely ready for guests. The owners were also very responsive to any questions we had during our stay. Loved it and would definitely stay here again for a future Vermont retreat!
