The lake is a 2 minute walk from the house. There you will enjoy 90 feet of lake frontage, BBQ's, benches, and your own private dock and paddle boat. The swimming is fantastic with gravel lake bottom and gradual decline (perfect for the kids). During the day make the short drive to Killington/Pico for skiing (40 minutes), walk across the street (1/2 mile) to Lake St. Catherine Country Club for a day of golf, go hiking at Lake St. Catherine State Park (next door), go shopping and sight-seeing in Manchester (30 minutes) or Bennington (40 minutes), or simply relax, boat, fish, or play at the lake. Return home to a glowing sunset, an evening BBQ and/or a crackling fire (either indoors or outdoors).

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are a family of three who live in Monterey, Ca. I was born in Vermont and have MANY relatives who live within minutes of the house. I actually learned how to swim at Lake St. Catherine when I was 5. My husband and I wanted our son to have a strong connection to VT and his relatives so we bought the house to ensure we would spend time in VT each year. We have not missed a year yet. We all love and cherish our time in VT.

Why the Owner Chose Lake St. Catherine:
We bought this house because it had beautiful views of lake, great lake access and a large dock. Many houses on the lake have drop offs to get into the lake. Our house does have a communal lake frontage, but it is only with a few other houses and it has a nice beach with a gradual decline. This was perfect for our son who was only 4 when we bought the house. Also, the house is in a very nice, small neighborhood and most others we looked at were right on a major road. Lastly, we loved that the neighborhood had direct access to Lake St. Catherine State Park (127 acres of hiking, beaches, playgrounds, etc) and was right across from Lake St Catherine Country Club/Golf Course. We also liked that he house had southern exposure and was on a double lot so there is a huge yard (half an acre).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location is a huge benefit since you could spend an entire week here and never get in your car. You can walk to the country club for dinner or lunch and a round of golf. You can walk to the state park and rent boats, swim at the beaches, play basketball or baseball, hike, etc. Then get an ice cream or burger at their snack stand. We provide bikes, so you could ride 1 mile to the LSC country store for supplies, soft serve ice cream and mini-golf. The house itself is well equipped to keep you entertained as well--Paddle Boat at the Dock, Foosball, Pool Table, Piano, Dart Board, Tiki Bar, 2-Flat Screen TVs, Sauna, Movies, Books, Outdoor/Water Toys, and much more.
