It is perfect for a family with children who want to escape into the crystal clear water for fun swimming, fishing, snorkeling and family bonding. Large fire pit for BBQ and 'smores, fully equipped kitchen, oven, microwave, 2 refrigerators, a separate bar room, and all amenities. Dock and lawn for relaxing while the kids swim.

Hand built waterfront log cabin with wrap-around porch & fire pit sleeps 10
I grew up in Benson, Vt and as a child I swam on this property for years. I went to college in Maine, and couldn't wait to get back to my hometown to vacation. So, I built the cabin as a place for my family to play.
Why Owner chose Benson
This was my childhood swimming and fishing spot. My father and I would hunt the woods nearby, and I have the fondest memories of making a fire to cook our lunch on this very point. Once out of college, we drew a sketch of our dream cabin and though it might be fun to throw up a rustic hunting cabin. A few years later, as we diligently finalized the hand-made bed and finished the other furniture, we realized we overshot and built a lodge instead of a little hunting camp. It has served our entire extended family well and we enjoy sharing it with other families.
What makes this Cabin unique
This cabin is secluded yet only a 10 minute drive to the local store and restaurant. Our neighbors are wonderful. The lake is one of the cleanest and clearest bodies of water in the state of Vermont. The view is amazing. The cabin was painstakingly built with "family" in mind--open concept with huge tables and large dining room to gather in. The fire pit encourages late night 'smores and bonding. The water is amazing, our kids simply swim all day. The view from the porch and the dock allows parents to relax and supervise the kids.

Beautiful water front log cabin

Best getaway lakehouse out there!
Let me start by saying that the pictures don't do this place justice. We were all young working professional looking to get away from the city. We came across this place and couldn't have been happier to stumble upon this spacious waterfront lakehouse, Perfect place if you like swimming, kayaking, canoeing, relaxing in tubes or any other water activities you can think of. In addition, the firepit right along the waterpit makes for a great way to enjoy nature at night while toasting some s'mores or having a drink (or two). If that isn't enough for you the owner was the best person I have ever rented from. He went above and beyond to make sure we had anything we needed and was quick to respond to any questions we had. If you are looking for a nice quiet place to get away this is the perfect place for you. We will be back in the future for sure!
This cabin is OUTSTANDING all the way around!!!
This cabin is amazing! We loved the decor, convenience and comfort. The location is excellent, right next to the water's edge. You can sit on the back porch and watch wildlife and listen to the chorus of frogs and birds. The water is beautiful. Extremely kid friendly and the fishing was excellent. You will love the rustic hand made furniture. The reservation, check-in, key pickup and check-out processes were efficient and easy. The owner was very friendly and client-focused. We have already recommended this place to several friends.
