Why Alecia Armstrong chose Plymouth
Centrally located between Killington & Okemo. We are in the heart of Vermont off historic Route 100. The property has a perfect view of the entire lake. The cottage is quaint, cozy, and charming. It is an authentic lake cottage we’ve restored, updated, and renovated all while keeping its true original charm. Sure, we have some quirks here and there, not uncommon for a historical Cottage......and oh so charming. What really sets us apart are our quaint bedrooms with high quality linens, down comforters, 100% Egyptian cotton towels and multiple amenities offered that other properties don't. The cottage is such a relaxing, calming place. We have added many "must-have" conveniences with high quality creature comforts because it needs to be that special place. We love entertaining at the cottage because the set-up is so "party friendly" and there is plenty of room for many friends to stay. The area is packed with fun things to do such as shopping in beautiful Woodstock, skiing/hiking at either Killington or Okemo, Long Trail Brewery lunches, tours & samples at the Plymouth Cheese Factory, and trips to Buttermilk Falls to name only a few. Harry's is our favorite restaurant and is less than 10 minutes down the road. Check out our FB page for the latest updates: Vermont Cottage, Alecia Armstrong, GlampCampVermont, or Vermont Cottage Lake Amherst. I inherited this property from my grandparents who built it in 1934. My grandmother was a Brown and a descendant of founding father Nathaniel Bowman Brown who 'camped at the head of Lake Amherst during the Revolutionary War.' He returned to Plymouth after the war and along with other early settlers settled the town of 'Saltash' which is now Plymouth. I believe that Nathaniel may have very well camped near or on the land that I now owns along with my husband and children.

Reunion Weekend in VT
We had 9 people for a weekend in the cabin and greatly enjoyed our stay. There was plenty of room for everyone, and the yard is perfect for games.
Check in was easy and Alecia was very helpful and thorough leading up to the trip. We would definitely stay here again.
Everything we need
Alecia's cottage had everything we need. We had a party of 10 people and with plenty of rooms and beds, everyone was able to fit in and still have rooms/beds. Kitchen had everything we need to cook a decent meal after a long day of snowboarding.
What a wonderful place for a winter vacation! The house was conveniently located near two ski resorts. The view was spectacular. The decorations were tasteful with fun vintage knick knacks. The amenities (shampoo, lotion, soap etc.) inside the house were top of the line brands, no need to pack your own. The bedding was warm and cozy, perfect for those cold winter nights. The towels were plentiful and luxurious. The owners were very thoughtful in providing everything from a fire ready-to go, to a large assortment of high quality kitchen appliances, spices, and silverware (real silver!). They were very responsive to our concerns; issues were resolved immediately. Our family really enjoyed this trip. Everyone from the dogs to the parents found rest, recreation, and entertainment. Just one regret, we packed too much stuff. Note to travelers: Just show up, the house has it all! Well done, Alecia, you really thought of everything. Would recommend this house with no hesitation. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.
Amazing weekend on the lake
We spent three glorious days at this beautiful house with our extended family and our lab! There was something to do for everyone. We kayaked and fished. We made s’mores multiple times a day. The beds were so comfortable and the linens were amazing! Thank you Alecia for sharing your beautiful home with us!
Thank you so much for coming to stay. We do appreciate wonderful families such as yours who appreciate these old time lakeside cottages, quirks and all! Happy we could provide a nice experience. I'm sure the children will remember this. I have fond memories of going there and want that to carry forward.
A Perfect Getaway!
The Vermont Cottage could not have been more perfect! My husband and his buddies spent the weekend there and were raving about everything. Alecia was on top of everything and her clear instructions and willingness to make their stay as perfect as possible was just what you want in a rental owner. She even reached out to us because she wasn't sure the lake would be thawed and the boys were really hoping to do some fishing, but luckily by the time they arrived the boats were out and they were able to enjoy the lake. They even caught a few! There were plenty of boats for 6 grown men to fit and they had a blast rowing around. They all raved about the unique style and layout of the house, as well as the amazingly comfortable beds. The view was gorgeous and the property was just secluded enough that they felt like they had privacy, but was also close to stores if they needed anything. The house has all amenities that you could want and the guys enjoyed cooking both inside and out. I was definitely jealous when I saw pictures and heard stories about the weekend! Thank you Alecia for making their weekend a perfect getaway! We will be back again, with wives and families this time! :)
Thank you for your review. This was the perfect group! They left the place clean and tidy. We welcome them back anytime and hope more family can join them. We were just saying that we feel lucky that the cottage is situated on 2 1/2 acres at the head of the lake so it feels secluded and private. It also close enough to the store to be able to run out and luck up something.
Perfect for Our Executive Retreat!
I can see how this home would be loved by families wanted to get away from it all. For us, we used it as a get-away from technology and the corporate life for the six of us on the executive team for a major financial institution. We spent a few days reflecting and strategizing for our organization. It was the perfect home for this roll up your sleeve kind of work in a space that allowed you to think creatively!
I would like to see more work retreats held there. Thanks for choosing Vermont Cottage for yours. Hope you can come back soon and enjoy the lake!
