Overview

Belmont Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

A cozy Vermont mountain cottage one mile to picturesque Belmont Village and Star Lake, and 6 miles to Okemo Ski Resort and Ludlow. A private location with a deck overlooking Star Lake, meadows and mountain vistas (with a 75 mile view!).

Sleeps 2 to 6...... 2 for a romantic get-away, or up to 6 for family and friends:

2 bedrooms [Queen; Double; and Queen Sleep Sofa in living room], 2 baths, living room with woodstove, High Speed Internet, satellite TV, DVD, CD player; dining area; fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, microwave; laundry with washer/dryer. A beautiful mountain get-away, yet close to skiing and other activities.

We are in the heart of the Green Mountains between Killington and Stratton/Bromley. We have beautiful (spectacular!!) views off to the west and northwest (great sunsets). Our cottage sits on a hill surrounded by stately maples and open pastures. It sits at 2100 feet above sea level and overlooks a lake with a 75 mile view across the mountains of Vermont and into New York State (we see the highest mountain in NY). We are one mile from Star Lake which has a beach and boat access. The cottage is surrounded by 180 acres of our land, and hundreds more acres of friends, family and the State of Vermont. We have our own trail network for hiking, snowshoeing and xc skiing, and there's lots of other hiking all around the town and local area. On our land across the road from the cottage there are four beaver ponds that string along a brook that runs into Star Lake.

Although private, our cottage is in the heart of the Vermont ski and tourist area so there are lots of restaurants, shops, and activities within 5 to 10 miles

Winter:

Okemo 6 miles; 5 other major ski areas are 30-40 minutes away (Killington, Pico, Bromley, Stratton, Magic); snowshoe, cross-country ski and sled from house; village skating; 1/2 mile to VAST snowmobile trail system.

Summer & Fall: Peaceful hide-away; nearby mountain lakes - swim, fish, boat rentals. Central to sightseeing, golf, tennis, horseback riding, hiking, biking; near historic Weston Playhouse and Weston Priory. Surrounded by Vermont forests and autumn foliage.

NO SMOKING

DOGS allowed with permission; please inquire when booking.

(sorry, NO CATS)

About Ron Unterman

My wife and I are retired and live full time in Belmont, just down the road from our rental cottage.

Come visit us in our little corner of paradise :)

Why Ron Unterman chose Belmont

Ron's family began coming to Belmont for summers in 1956 and his parents moved here full-time from New York City in 1970. As a teenager Ron worked on a local farm and the family came up to Belmont for every vacation, all year 'round. Ron and Dottie moved here full-time in 2001 and enjoy all of Vermont's seasons -- You will too :)

What makes this cottage unique

We are in the heart of the Green Mountains between Killington and Stratton/Bromley, and minutes to Okemo. We have beautiful (spectacular!!) views off to the west and northwest (great sunsets). Our cottage sits on a hill surrounded by stately maples and open pastures. It sits at 2100 feet above sea level and overlooks a lake with a 75 mile view across the mountains of Vermont and into New York State (we see the highest mountain in NY). We are one mile from Star Lake which has a beach and boat access. The cottage is very private being surrounded by 180 acres of our land, and hundreds more acres of friends, family and the State of Vermont. We have our own trail network for hiking, snowshoeing and xc skiing, and there's lots of other hiking all around the town and local area. On our land across the road from the cottage there are four beaver ponds that string along a brook that runs into Star Lake.

..... and we have a moose that visits every now and then [EMAIL us for this picture and many others].

Although private, this house is in the heart of the Vermont ski and tourist area so there are lots of restaurants, shops, and activities within 5 to 10 miles (Mt. Holly, Ludlow, Weston, etc.)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ron and Dottie--

Thanks very much for letting us enjoy your very comfortable cottage. The photos we'd seen both in the brochure and on the internet didn't do justice to either the clean and modern facilities, nor the marvelous views. We look forward to returning some day. Many thanks again, especially for the warm and thoughtful welcoming touches.

Perfect mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5
We went for a few nights (me, my boyfriend, and my dog) but wish we stayed longer! Adorable house, perfect location, and great owners! Short ride to so many, mostly outdoor, attractions; places to visit are even recommended by owners (but there are even more if you do a little research). Ron and Dottie were so accommodating and so nice, we can't wait to go back!

Beautiful views and super clean!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had an incredible stay! The cabin was perfect to accomodate us all. The owner was great. He was so nice and accommodating. I have asthma that can be triggered by scented laundry detergent and he made sure all the bedding was washed in UNSCENTED products. The cabin was immaculately clean. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans. Even a dishwasher. Beautiful view from the back porch. A great place to sit and enjoy a cup of hot tea or coffee. We had four children with us all under the age of eight. They had a wonderful time, too. It was nice being able to send them outside to play hide-and-seak with no worry of traffic like at home. They climbed trees and went rock hunting. Lots of fun stuff to do within a reasonable driving distance. We visited Crowley cheese factory, a marble factory museum, saw glassblowing at Simon Pearce's shop, a maple syrup museum, the charming village of Woodstock, took the childern to a corn maze, the bridge and shops at Quechee Village. Vermont is a picturesque state...covered bridges, fall foliage, hills dotted with old farm houses, it made going back home hard.

A Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5
This indeed is "a cozy Vermont mountain cottage" and a perfect place for
fall foliage viewing, a romantic getaway or simply time with family in
Vermont!

A friend and I arranged to use Ron and Dotty's cottage early in the summer
of 2014 and we liked it so much we returned two more times in the later part
of the summer. The house is clean without being chemically sanitized and Ron
displays an appropriate level of attentiveness without being overwhelming.

The cottage is situated in such a way that the views from the porch are
truly stunning. With Okemo Ski Resort and the town of Ludlow down the road,
there is plenty to see and do.

Kevin, who owns the Belmont Country Store down the hill, couldn't be any
more helpful with groceries and other odds and ends. I recommend stopping in
there too!

Do yourself a favor and book a vacation at this special spot in Vermont! I
highly recommend this cottage!

"Just right"

"Just right"
  • 5 of 5
My two Labs and I spent a week at "Hedgehog Hill Cottage" in early May and we had a wonderful time enjoying early spring in Vermont. The cottage is well situated, high on a hillside, with beautiful views from every window. It offers a tranquil experience (very quiet, with a series of private trails right behind the cottage), and at the same time is close to many of the treasures that Vermont has to offer, from exceptional hiking (Healdville Trail hike was amazing! scrambling through ice and snow to reach the summit) to local artisans, historic sites (e.g., Calvin Coolidge birthplace), and just the natural beauty of the area.

Ron was very accommodating and helpful as I planned my trip and provided detailed directions to the cottage, which I very much appreciated. The cottage was immaculate, cosy, comfortable and home-like. The kitchen is very well equipped. There is a binder full of interesting suggestions of places to go, things to see, driving time to each ... obviously a lot of thought and care has gone into making your stay enjoyable. The dogs enjoyed all the fresh air, open space, and finding places to swim--their main interest--of which there are certainly ample in this area.

I had not been in Vermont in many years and now I know I will certainly be back! thanks again for a great stay.

PS the bed in the master bedroom is super comfortable too!

Cozy Cottage with great views and location

  • 5 of 5
We rented Ron's cabin for the extended Presidents Day weekend. For weather related reasons, we had to drive up a night earlier and Ron was most gracious and accomodating of the request. The cottage itself is a very cozy cottage with all the amenities you would want. It is ideally located with a short drive to Okemo entrance.

It snowed everyday and the plow service was on-time daily to ensure the driveway was clear. Ron was a pleasure to deal with and i would not hesitate to recommend or to rent the cottage again.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, Ron and Dottie, for sharing your little piece of paradise. What an incredible location. My husband and I, our two kids and our dog really enjoyed our stay. Your home has a cozy yet open feeling to it, and it is obviously well cared for. Located close to the Jackson Gore entrance for Okemo, it is incredibly convenient to some fantastic skiing. And thank you too for letting us use your snowshoes. It was a treat to do a snowshoe stomp on our last morning.
We hope to come back again soon!
