Summer: In the summer you can take the stairway down to your own beach area directly on the water , swim, enjoy fishing, or just relax. The lawn area has 100ft of your own waterfront, dock, fire area and seating. If you are adventures there is a Canoe and a two person Kayak in the boathouse for your use. Up at the house sit out on the porch while Grilling that summer meal with patio seating for six.
Note: As mentioned, there is a stairway down to the water as the house sits above overlooking the lake. The stairs have landings to sit if necessary
Take a nice day hike off the Long Trail with several hive hikes around the area. There is Belvidere with access 10 minutes from the house and enjoy views from the lookout tower.
The house is within 20-30 minutes from several places to eat from a nice local snack bar, pizza, pub atmosphere and high end dining in Stowe. We will be glad to provide information on these places per request.
Activities: There is a Zip line at Smugglers Notch located about 30 minutes from the house. A great afternoon adventure for a couple or the whole family. If that isn't enough excitement and the weather is a little cool or cloudy, take a trip to Jay Peak for a day to play at the New Indoor Waterpark! Excitement for anyone and all ages that has had glowing reviews.
As mentioned, there is local hikes that are moderate in terrain. If you are looking for a good day hike, there is Camels Hump or Mt. Mansfield that are within an hour from the house and have wonderful views with Rocky Mountain tops.
Fall: Overlooking the Lake with afternoon sun exposure, enjoy the fall weather from the front deck or take the stairs down to the Lake and enjoy an evening campfire, or just relax on your own 100ft of lakefront lawn. Take the chill out of the fall air with a nice wood fire in the living room or Jacuzzi bath in the Master bedroom. Enjoy the serenity of private lake front area with surrounding area views not to be missed. Excellent place to drive around Northern Vermont and visit three popular Ski towns, Stowe, Smugglers Notch, and Jay Peak within 30-45minutes.
Winter: If you are a skier, snowmobiler, or just love winter this is a wonderful staging area for fun. There are three ski areas within 50 minutes you can ski one or ski them all. The vast trail is just down the road and there is always winter time adventure in Vermont. House has a wood fireplace for relaxing and unwinding along with the Master bedroom Jacuzzi this is a perfect place to stay and play. We provide enough complimentary firewood for a night or two during your stay, along with a small book selection to choose from for a quiet read or bring your own and relax and unwind.
This was our second stay at Jeff and Deanna's place. We, again, had the pleasure of spreading out (from a 1 bedroom apt.) and enjoyed relaxing in our own worlds! Saturday night we returned from a rainy soccer game and loooong drive to a cozy home and had the thrill of watching the snow come down while we sat next to the fire! We didn't even mind the blown transformer and few hours without power. Hardly knew it because we were disconnected, only the green flash of the transformer blowing alerted us. Even with clouds and few leaves, the fantastic views of Lake and Mountains makes this a great getaway. It truly take us to another, gentler, natural world! Thanks to Jeff and Deanna for letting us have that experience.
this was our first time using this service and booking a vacation, the information was accurate and timely. In addition the pictures provided made it an easy selection. The home was beautiful and well stocked, we wanted for nothing. The Neighborhood was quite and peaceful. Relaxing with fishing rod in hand off the dock was exactly what I was looking for. Enjoying the property with my brother and his wife was great, we both had separate areas for sleeping and our own bathroom so we didn't keep each other awake. Certainly made it easier getting ready in the morning to head out to the local attractions. Relaxing by the water with a camp fire and making S'mores was great , brought back childhood memories. I will be recommending this property to both relatives and friends that might need a getaway. We are looking forward to next year already. Thanks again Jeff and Deanna for sharing you home with us. Much needed and Appreciated.
This was just the perfect romantic getaway! I cannot say enough about this lovely home. Jeff and Deanna have put so much love and attention into their retreat. It was so peaceful, from the early morning rooster crowing to the gorgeous evening sky, this spot was perfect. We enjoyed the lakeside firepit very much. From beginning to end it was an idyllic retreat. The home has absolutely everything you would need, and more. We have already started thinking about when we can return! Thank you Jeff and Deanna once again!
We were looking for a place to relax where we would have access to a lake and had a wonderful time here. The house was very clean, comfortable, and spacious with windows and decks looking out onto the water. The kitchen was well-equipped and the patio outside was a lovely place to have breakfast. The host was very responsive, kind, and professional. We enjoyed swimming and hanging out on the dock and spent one afternoon making a trip to nearby Stowe. We would definitely come again. Thank you again to Jeff and Donna!
This is the second summer I vacationed here with my adult children, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay once again. The home is utterly beautiful and well cared for. The location quiet and gorgeous and the owners very responsive to any questions I had.
We found a few wonderful spots to eat nearby - Wicked Wings & Downtown Pizzeria, the Bijou Cineplex in Morrisville to take in a movie and plenty of places to visit when we felt like getting out - Cabot Creamery Visitors Center, Ben & Jerrys, Fort Ticonderoga for a full day trip.
I would absolutely recommend this home for a vacation stay and look forward to returning.
We decided to combine a visit to a college age child with a vacation. After an unsuccessful attempt to book on another site, we discovered this site and this property. We couldn't have been more lucky! We needed some time to decompress from dealing with injury, illness, surgery and general craziness of the world. Our arrival was on a cold June night after a tiring 4 hour drive. Like little kids, the first thing we did was explore the house, joyfully calling out discoveries to each other. Then we settled down to a warm fire, courtesy of the firewood already supplied. For the next four days we retreated into a world where the best show was the one from the living room window overlooking the lake and the mountains. That would have been enough but the full sized kitchen, spacious bedrooms and sound system just pampered us! We appreciated Jeff and Deanna's personal note upon arrival and the tips they gave us regarding local shops. Next time we plan to do more exploring, knowing that we will have our own 5 star place as a base!
Located on Lake Eden with direct access to the lake with private 100ft frontage. The drive is a private road and quiet. Located 30 minutes to Stowe, Smugglers notch and Jay Peak Ski Resorts.
During the Summer months there are several activities within 30 minutes of the house.
The Abortrek Zip line at Smugglers notch is a fun afternoon of zipping through the trees. The new Indoor Waterpark at Jay Peak is great day of waterpark fun from the lazy river to the giant slide.
If a little closer to nature is what you are looking for than maybe a Kayak Tour by Umiak Outfitters on the local river. If a little excersice is ok, try our personnel favorites, hiking some of the best terrain anywhere, Camels Hump and Mt. Mansfield not to mention some great 2-4 hr. local hikes on the long trail.
