Wake up to a beautiful morning sunrise over the lake. Watch the sunset behind the Green Mountains after a day of hiking, or swimming and boating on this sparkling Vermont lake. Relax at night with marshmallows roasting over a crackling campfire, while gazing at the moon and stars that glisten over the calm water. It's a great place to relax in solitude, share with a special companion, or frolic with the family! Cottage is on the west shore of Lake St. Catherine in Horeshoe Bay, considered the quiet side of the lake compared to busy Route 30. West Lake Road follows the western shoreline.
We had a great time at this lake rental! The house was meticulously clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The area was very quiet and the neighbors were friendly too. The couple that own the house were very nice and helped familiarize us with the area. My family enjoyed fishing, hiking, swimming, rowing and having campfires by the water. We were thrilled to be able to have our dog with us for the week too!
We enjoyed getting ice cream and playing mini golf at Otto's General Store and getting pizza from Poultney House of Pizza. We also liked visiting nearby Lake St. Catherine State Park, Slate Valley Museum & Pember Museum.
We would highly recommend this rental to anyone interested in visiting Lake St. Catherine!
I have rented this cottage for 5 consecutive years, and I plan to rent again this summer. Before 2006 I had rented three different Lake St. Catherine cottages. All were directly on the water, and two were larger. All things considered, this cottage is the best deal. It has always been spotlessly clean. The owners are unobtrusive, but very responsive if needed. The location on West Lake Road is close to both Wells, VT and Granville, NY. Although the cottage is across the road from the lake, the road is a dead end, and there is not a lot of traffic. The view from the deck of the cottage is unobstructed and beautiful. The waterfront area dedicated to the cottage is large and well maintained. I have use of a speedboat while I am there, and I've found the dock to be more than adequate.
Our firends and I stayed at the O'Briens property on July 4th of 2010.

We rented this house for three years on Lake St Catherine. It was perfect for our family of five. The Owners were very nice and never made us feel "watched over". The house was immaculate with an updated bathroom. The Lake is spectacular and the swimming area for this house was ideal (no mushy bottom). Our memories for this house would include sitting on the front deck reading, playing cards on the screen porch, golfing at the nearby course and barbecues with our extended family in the yard. I would highly recommend this house for the ideal lake vacation.
We have enjoyed the cabin at Lake St. Catherine for 6 summers! It is always kept so clean and neat. Beautiful sunrise over the lake can be enjoyed looking out the kitchen window. Bay is quiet from boat traffic and water depth is gradual so the kids can enjoy the water.
Always have a great time enjoying the lake!
We were pleasantly surprised by the house - somewhat nicer and less rustic than expected. Pretty well equipped, larger than it looks in the photos, and spotless. Disappointed by the location. Lake St. Catherine is nice, especially the west side, where this house is. However, it was offered and priced as waterfront, but the house actually was across the street from the lake. The "waterfront" is a little slice of land with a shaky dock that is on the side of the lot across the street (where the owners' house is located). They were nice, but there is zero privacy and there was little place for kids to play. There is a streetlight close to the waterfront, so the campfire area is brightly lit so not a nice place to a enjoy a fire. The owners are very pleasant and accommodating, but the weekend we were leaving they had a large gathering and we didn't feel comfortable with allowing the kids to play outside because it would have seemed rude. Generally the area is great - near to Manchester, Bromley Mt. and its summer activities, and Lake George with all its tourist attractions is close.
