Why Linda Michels chose Poultney
We have been coming to the lake for almost 30 years and find the area beautiful and relaxing. From here we enjoy Vermont for all seasons. We enjoy skiing, golfing, hiking and boating. We never run out of things to do on Lake St. Catherine

Another fantastic week on the lake
This is our second year staying at the Michel's house on Lake St Catherine and once again we were not disappointed! The house is always clean and comfortable with plenty of space to stretch out, either in the house or out on the deck. Comfortable beds too!
The deck is great for relaxing, eating, and star-gazing. The dock has all the kids and adults need to relax in the water. Floats. Kayaks. We rented a boat from the local marina and a SUP from another marina on Lake Bomosseen.
The water was warm and the weather was perfect! The few times it rained, we played some of the board games.
An excellent time for our family of 4! Many thanks to the Michel's for sharing their lovely house!
Thanks for being great guests for two years in a row!
Our family of 4 had a wonderful week up on Lake St. Catherine! Upon arrival, we opened up all the windows and blinds to a gorgeous view of the lake. The downstairs living area had plenty of space for our 2 boys to lounge around in, and for us when we were not on the deck enjoying the day, evening, and star gazing at night.
The kids room was perfect for the boys. I loved our room as I sleep with windows open and was able to catch the sunrise each morning, before rolling over to go back to sleep.
The kitchen is well stocked with spices, coffee, and various other items. All we needed was food and we were good to go. The grocery store was quick 5-10 min drive. On the nights we stayed in, we grilled on the Weber. We did bring and buy water to drink but used the their tap water for everything else.
The outside was exceptional! Comfortable and clean furniture on the deck and dock. The dock areas was great. No millfoil weeds around the surrounding area. We used one of the kayaks and rented a boat from EZ Marine and a paddle board from Woodward. We spent a lot of time floating on the water with the floats in the deck box. The kids and hubby loved fishing off the dock as well. The house is surrounded by beautiful gardens as well, which I loved.
Thank you to the Michels for letting us stay at their lovely house for our much needed and very restful 2018 summer vacation! We look forward to future visits!
Peace and tranquility!!!
If you are looking for some rest and relaxation.... This is the place!!! Beautiful view of the lake and mountains.... amazing sunsets.... Peaceful, tranquil ..... all on a dead end street!!
Fantastic deck, very private, as it sits up high and overlooks the road and other homes (the very few that are in sight). The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need!!! Parking was definitely tight.... But we had 2 SUVs parked just fine!
I am glad you enjoyed your week at our cottage. As you pointed out parking is tight on our sloped site and that is why we restrict guests to 2 vehicles. I hope you will return to visit us soon and that you will recommend our cottage to your friends
Great house, great location, relaxing time!
We really enjoyed our stay at this house; it was easy to find, ideally located on the lake and the house was very clean, wonderfully furnished, well-equipped and stocked. The large deck was perfect in the evenings, the dock on the lake was large, with an easy, gradual slope into the water. It was a hot week so the central A/C was nice on very warm nights. Most times though, cool breezes kept the house very comfortable. The owners were very easy to work with and I'm sure will have very happy guests in the future!
Thank you, we are glad you enjoyed our lake house as much as we do.
We had such a wonderful vacation on lake at lake St. Catherine ! We brought our boat with us and we're able to keep right at our dock with no problems. We spent a lot of time on the water and just enjoying the beautiful majestic views from our dock. We were lucky enough to see an eagle fly by one day and scoop out a fish on the lake.
The house was spectacular! The pictures you see on the site say it all. We loved how comfortable the central air made us feel because it was a warm week. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could possibly need , and we have never stayed at a place where the beds were that comfortable. Parking is tight though.
We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who loves to go to the lake for rest & relaxation !!
Thank you and I am glad you enjoyed your stay at our lakeside house and hope to see you again in the future.
A Perfect Week
The cottage is very imposing as you drive up to it, and both floors have lake front windows. To sleep with the windows open, seeing the stars and the silhouette of the Vermont mountains....priceless! Both bedrooms have flat screen TVs and cable. The kitchen is exceptionally stocked, and there were 12 trays of ice cubes made so we were able to immediately enjoy the sangria we brought! We grilled in once, and otherwise enjoyed dining in Rutland, Poultney, Dorset, Castleton, and Manchester. The lake water was warm - we brought floats for our lazy days and I kayaked for the first time when we had more energy. The state park is visible across the lake from the deck, and a great place for swimming. All the deck furniture had covers, so we were never required to sit on wet cushions after a rain. The street is quiet and the neighbors are nice. This was a much nicer rental than one I had the prior year - I hope to be back. Thank you Linda and Keith.
