Escape To A Charming Cottage On Clear, Cool, Shadow Lake In Glover, VT

Bedrooms 3
Space 900 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

3 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Mountain Views, Dock, Kayaks, Fishing, Swimming, Relaxing!

PLEASE NOTE: The cottage is booked for the 2017 season.

This historic camp is our own little getaway. For that reason, we limit the number of rentals so that we can enjoy it, too! It has been recently renovated to sleep 6 comfortably. It is located on the quiet, west end of Shadow Lake, which is a pristine gem in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont; a 188 acre, clear, deep (140') lake with superb swimming, fishing, and lovely mountain views.

Come relax on the screened-in porch, or on the Adirondack chairs overlooking the shore. Maybe cast a line from our private dock, swim a bit, kayak...

Leave the cares of the city behind. There is no TV, but we do have radio and secure broadband WiFi.

The master bedroom, which has a picture window overlooking the lake, has a king-sized bed. The second guest room, also with a lake view, has a double bed, and the third bedroom, with a view of the forest, has three twin beds (one standalone and one bunk bed).

Downstairs you will find an open floor-plan, combining the dining area, kitchen and living room. A modern bathroom with shower is off the kitchen. Kitchen amenities include stove, fridge, microwave, coffee-maker, dishes, utensils, and cookware.

We provide plenty of bottled drinking water, but as with most cottages in the area, the water in the kitchen and bathroom is drawn from the lake and therefore not potable unless boiled.

There is a fascinating, must-see little grocery/hardware/curio shop in the town of Glover, which is about 3 miles away, and nationally renown pizza and entertainment at Parker Pie in West Glover, about 4 miles distant, or 1 mile, if you enjoy orienteering.

This cottage and the lake it is on are really a restful step back in time. Breathe, sip a gin and tonic, grill a burger on the deck, take an evening dip. Reconnect with what really matters to you and your family.

About LeeLee Goodson

Why LeeLee Goodson chose Northeast Kingdom

We spent 3 years searching for 'the right spot' on a quiet lake near enough our home that we could visit often. This is it!

I was very excited about this rental. Beautiful setting , very nice owners who responded quickly to all my questions. However when I arrived the camp was so dirty I had to cleaning it immediately. This is not how I wanted to spend my vacation . I hope this helps future renters.

Owner's Response: I'm terribly sorry you felt our camp was not up to your standards. We try very hard to make it welcoming and comfortable, and to accurately represent it as the historic summer cottage it is. I went through it personally before your stay and I am fussy. We did notice that despite your unhappy comments, you used it thoroughly and seemed to enjoy the amenities. I have mailed your forgotten items.

Lovely setting. A peaceful and restorative getaway

Well appointed cabin, pristine lake, friendly neighbors on a very quiet end of the lake. What could be better? Owners are super-nice, and we had everything we could have wanted. We will definitely stay longer next time!

Beautiful, peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family's stay here was so wonderfully restful. My daughter would go out on the lake early in the morning in a kayak, and read a book a bit off shore and the Loons would come and circle around her. Watched the sunrise over the lake every morning and were sung to sleep by the haunting call of the Loon. Our neighbors were very friendly without being intrusive and most of the time weren't even there. The lake water was unbelievably clear! My whole family declared it the best vacation we've ever been on. Thank you!!
