The Kent Cottage is probably the best rental on Lake Willoughby with the private location of the cottage, the finest private, sandy beach on the lake and probably the State with such spectacular mountain views, a sailboat and motor boat.
$1,800/week + 9% VT tax $162 [$1,500 May and June]. For 2019 we are including a 17' O-Day racing Sailboat and motorboat with electric starter [with backup motorboat] and canoe.
This is a 112 year-old restored Victorian cottage which faces the sunset. All basic amenities and Wi-Fi with tenting on the beach or on the platform on the waterfront of the cottage. Lake Willoughby is Vermont's finest lake with pristine, crystal clear water. Our unique combination of a secluded cottage with the beach makes ours a rare rental with exceptional privacy. The white sandy beach is 750' long. We own 100' dead center bordered by a cool, sandy brook. Canoe silently across with spectacular mountain views, or motor over in 5 minutes (12 min around by car, private parking).The cottage faces the sunset; the beach greets the sunrise. After shadows fall across the beach, returning to the cottage is like getting a whole new day.Children love sunning, fishing or diving off the dock or underwater bolder in front of the cottage. After a Bar-B-Q, breakfast trout are best caught during sunset.The cottage is completely outfitted: library, porch, picnic table, complete kitchen/pantry with fresh basics, stereo,fishing equipment, and a shore side sitting niche to enjoy crashing waves, the sunset and nature's finest views and the call of the loons.
Peaceful and Natural : We are very particular about the presentation and cleanliness of our property and go to great effort to make sure that everything is spotless and in perfect order.
We provide a 5-page information document which describes details about the cottage, directions, and recreational resources in the area. We enjoy many positive compliments from previous visitors who return through the years. Rainy weather is not under our control, but the cottage is spacious, and we see spectacular views of rain storms coming down the lake -- from a secure and warm interior, and those sights are quite an experience. A trip to the beach across the lake by canoe and around by car, both arrive about the same time, on a beautiful sunny day make all the hard work you do during the rest of the year well worth it! And you can take a tour around the lake in the motor boat...or enjoy the swish of the water in the sailboat which will accommodate 4 adults or combination with children.
Fishing: Willoughby has produced some lunker lake trout in the 20 to 40 lb range. They are there -- but rare. We do provide trolling equipment and other fishing equipment (fly, casting, and spinning). Sam Kent will show you how to and the place to jig deep for the lakers. Nice rainbows may be caught at sunset in front of the cottage with bobber and worm.
Tenting on the beach across the lake from the cottage...a favorite with many. Also, for children a tent may be placed on the 10'x10' platform in front of the cottage by the shore. The front room looks down on the waterfront to monitor your children -- or to enjoy the sunset. There are also two sitting platforms on the waterfront... also excellent for watching your children.
