Perfect lake vacation

  • 4 of 5

The property is right on the lake and gets all day sun! Be aware that you can not rent a boat from the local marina regardless of your age unless you have a Vermont license....makes it impossible for out of state visitors :( The fishing is excellent- for a wonderful guide/charter call Rod Start.He knows every inch of the lake and the town's history as well. There is beautiful wildlife including herons, bald eagles, osprey, ducks, otters, turtles etc. The dock is nice but a bit narrow if you are all trying to hang out there. Swimming can be done but the milfoil (weeds) are significant.

The house has been recently refinished and is clean, sunny and nicely decorated. Could use a couple of side tables as kitchen counter space is limited when cooking. The outdoor fire pit is awesome!

Best vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful clean modern and well maintained house. The view from the deck is awesome. Not great for swimming, so we boated out to good spot to swim. Great place to kayak, and fish.

Great fire pit and balcony deck.

My only suggestion would be to change the direction that the porch door opens. It currently opens to the top of the stairs and that is a little dangerous for elderly and in the dark.

We had a wonderful week and I can't wait to return.

Quiet spot and beautiful view of the lake

  • 3 of 5

Nice size lot and great deck. Fun for boaters. Bald eagle and other birds abound. Great breeze when all windows opened.

Carpets were stained and runners placed over them. Refrigerator kept running and was loud. Musty smell when closed up. Swimming in front of house would be difficult due to variety of lake weeds. Last week in August the lake traffic was surprisingly quiet but still fun to watch water skiiers, sail boats and fishing.

Unbelievable location!

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a vacation with two other couples and stayed at the Rustics Lakehouse. What a great experience! Some points about this location: the southern exposure means that for a good part of the day, the entire front lawn and dock is bathed in light. You'll see when you visit how rare this is and what a difference it makes. There are still some shade trees to make it comfortable for everyone, and as you sit on the deck or dock, the southwesterly summer breeze also keeps you cool and comfortable all day. Although the kitchen is a bit small, it is well laid out and we managed nicely. There is public boat ramp RIGHT across the lake that makes launching very convenient. The previous renters left a good deal of trash behind after the Saturday AM pick up had already happened but Bob accommodated us right away with a second pick up, so there was no problem. This is a gem and we will hope to return.

A great stay on Lake Bomoseen

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this Lake Bomoseen location. The house was very comfortable and the location was spectacular. It had a huge deck overlooking the full length of the lake where we enjoyed our coffee in the morning and our drinks in the afternoon. It also had a great fire ring that we enjoyed in the evening. The house was fully equipped as described in the listing. We hope to stay here again in the future.
