CHARMING HOME IN MORGAN VT ON THE BEACH OF SEYMOUR LAKE

Lake Seymour House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, one half bath, sleeps 4-6

The home sits on the sandy shore of beautiful Lake Seymour only steps away from the water. You will enjoy spectacular sunsets and sunrises. The town of Morgan is located in Vermonts' Northeast Kingdom (NEK), 2 hrs drive from Burlington,VT; 2 hrs from Montreal, Quebec, Canada; 3 hrs from Boston, Ma; 4 hrs from Albany,NY; 6 hrs from NYC,NY and 4 hrs from Portland,Me. Vermonts' NEK offers breath-taking scenery, ecotourism and agritourism, Vermont made products, a rich diversity of art, and recreational opportunities which have gained the NEK national and intenational recognition. Vermonts NEK is revered for its lovely countryside, abundant natural resources and the preservation of traditional landscapes and lifestyles that have made the Vermont experience one to be cherished. A favorite vacation destination for over a century, the NEK offes endless recreational opportunities throughout the seasons, notable dining facilities, quintessential New England villages resplendent with classic architecture, enduring farmland, and a rich diversity of art, entertainment, and event venues all year long. Here visitors can pursue a variety of traditional adventures or you can engage in more unique offerings to include farm tours, primitive skills workshops, and farm to table culinary delights. Winter festivals, resort activities (take a trip to nearby Jay Peak for the indoor waterpark- try the Double Flow Rider Surfing Wave, the only indoor Aqualoop in the US - drop 50' per second, the largest indoor activity river in the country, and many kids play areas. A fully retractable roof and 86 degrees every day of the year!), downhill and alpine skiing at local Jay Peak and Burke Mtns (x-country ski right out your door on Lake Seymour!), sledding, sleighrides, snowshoeing, dogsledding, Llama trekking, iceclimbing and icefishing. Spring/Summer means maple surgaring time, rambling around back roads, picking berries, dangling toes in mtn brooks,streams and lakes, county fairs, outdoor concerts, beaches to sun on, lakes to sail, trails to hike, perfect picnic spots throughout the kingdom, mtn biking along the country roads and at Burke mtn (100 miles of single/doubletrack and a lift operated downhill!!) Autumn brings brilliant fall folliage setting the entire Kingdom ablaze with color that beckons 'leaf peepers' to bear witness to the artistic capabilities of nature. The Kingdom is a nature lovers delight- vast forrests, pristine rivers, deep lakes, spectacular vistas, prominent peaks and still marshes. A guide service can lead you to the best place to angle for a trout, spy a falcon, track a deer, navigate a stream, or follow a lost logging road. Many loons and other birds on the lake will entertain you. Visit Haskell Opera House and Library where you can straddle two nations at the world's only international opera house - performances take place in Canada and the audience members sit in the US.

Lake Seymour is the second largest lake entirely within the borders of Vt with 1,769 acres. It is in the town of Morgan, original home to the beautiful Morgan Horses. Lake Seymour is well known among anglers to be an excellent fishing hole. In 2002, Seymour Lake held the record for the largest lake trout caught in the state of Vt. In addition to lake trout, the lake is also known for brook trout and brown trout. Seymour Lake is sometimes called Namagonic, which is a Native American word for 'salmon trout spearing place'. This is due to the fact that landlocked salmon make their homes there. The Lake freezes over in the winter to provide for ice fishing, xcountry skiing and snowmobiling. Lake Seymour connects to nearby Echo Lake by an out-flowing stream; Echo Lake provides additional fishing spots for anglers. Due to the size of Seymour Lake, boating is another favorite pastime, and with prevailing westernly winds it is also the perfect lake for sailing and windsurfing. This region is well known for its wildlife. With an abundance of moose, deer, and beaver, hunters will find this part of Vermont a fantastic place to hunt. Vermont was the 14th state to be added to the union, and with a history dated that far back it is not surprising to find some enchanting old homes and buildings on the shores of Seymour. Some of the old farm houses date back to the early 1800's. Visitors can take pleasure in the remarkable beauty surrounding Seymour Lake as they sit on the deck or on the beach in front of the home watching loons glide across the cool refreshing waters. Peace and tranquility are close at hand to those who vacation here.

Great Lake House

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 8, 2014
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
This house was everything I was expecting it to be. A quiet lake house that was clean, had everything we needed, and spectacular views of the lake and mountains, especially the sunsets.
The neighbors were really friendly. If you wanted to talk to them, they would talk, but if not, you barely knew they were there. The beach was perfect to walk out into the water and put out the kayaks. Having a fire right by the water almost every night was the perfect way to end the days while watching the sunset.
Everything in the house was clean and lots of space. With the master bedroom upstairs and the two beds in the basement, perfect for a family with children or a pair of couples. I would highly recommend this property to everyone.
To go into a biggish town with a couple grocery stores and restaurants if you want to eat out, its a scenic 25 minute drive. Not bad at all.
Even when the weather wasn't really nice, i could still sit by the window and enjoy the view. I would definitely stay here again.

Great Rental

This was the perfect house for me, my husband and daughter. The house was nicely updated and spotlessly clean and offered a lot of amenities--the Temperapedic beds were so comfortable, there were lots of fans in the house for cooling and the kitchen was well laid-out for cooking and enjoying meals together. The beach access was wonderful and we could walk pretty far out in the water before it got deep. We had a very peaceful and relaxing week and Mary was a real pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended!

beautiful spot on quiet, very clean lake

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
First of all, was very pleased at just what a beautiful spot this was, and still very convenient to main road in Morgan; only 5 minutes drive to Morgan country store for dvd rentals, convenience items, even great pizza!
The house is lovely, has been carefully renovated with topnotch items including beautiful dining room table, ceiling fans in every room and tempurpedic mattresses.
Sleeps 6, however, important to mention that a king and queen are in the basement, which has been finished off partly, but has no windows. No problem if you don't mind sleeping in complete darkness-which I don't.
There is only one bureau in the upstairs bedroom, so plan to live out of your suitcase or hang items in closets. Extra bureaus would probably be the only suggestion I would make that would have made stay a little easier.

Otherwise, kitchen well stocked, beds with lovely linens already made up.
And the view! Priceless. Comes w/2 kayaks for early morning rides. Large walk-in sandy beach was perfect for my mom who has difficulty navigating docks and ladders. My 3 boys enjoyed several late night ghost story telling by the beautifully-situated fire pit. This is truly a wonderful spot, with wonderful neighbors on either side.
Would definitely rent again, without hesitation.

A Great Winter Getaway

At the last minute my family and I decided to get away and do some ice fishing for a week. After finding this property online I contacted Mary and was very pleased with the polite and helpful correspondences that we had the weeks leading up to our stay. Upon arival we were very happy with the property. It was very clean and comfortable. The pictures do not do this place justice. We had a great week and caught some nice Lake Trout too. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a nice quiet getaway in beautiful northern Vermont. I can only imagine how nice this place is in the summertime. A charming home to say the least.

Comfortable cottage; serene mountain lake

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 2, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
We enjoyed a lovely weekend at the house on the lake. It was spotlessly clean, which is very important to us. It was just the two of us and our dog. We didn't use the downstairs bedroom at all, so the experience was of one-floor living – very easy, compact and convenient. The bedroom just off the kitchen features a deliciously comfortable pillow-top mattress. The kitchen is well-equipped and easy to work in. Two bathrooms = lovely privacy. Every window features a view of the lake, which is only a few steps from the cottage. With all the windows open, we could hear the lake in its various moods as well as watch it change colors and dance with light and shadow throughout the day. This is exactly what we sought in the rental. Lake Seymour is clear and cool and nowhere near as frigid in late June as you might think a mountain lake would be. From the little beach in front of the cottage the lake slopes down very gradually, and the bottom is mostly sandy and free of big rocks. Neighbors on both sides were unobtrusive and the entire neighborhood seemed very quiet and safe.
