Peace and tranquility!!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

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 !!

A Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

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.

Relax by the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house and our week on Lake St. Catherine. The house was exactly what we were looking for and just as advertised. Very nicely decorated and stocked with everything we needed. Very clean and well maintained. The location is perfect at the quiet north end of the lake. It has a very nice large dock which was perfect for the pontoon boat we rented. It was very humid the week we were there so it was nice to have the air conditioning. Cable TV and Wireless Internet all worked great as did the Verizon Cell signals!

Dealing with Linda was a pleasure. She was very prompt and helpful with the lease and information, and returned our deposit within a week.

We will definitely be returning next year.

Excellent rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful cabin on Lake St. Catherine for a week in July 2012. Everything was just as advertised. Linda, the owner, was responsive and efficient. The house had plenty of dishes, towels, etc., and we used the BBQ grill several times. The lake was just the right temperature and we needed the A/C only on a couple of days.
