Perched above the shore of the Northeast Kingdom's Lake Willoughby, the home features a large private yard with picturesque granite bedrock ledges and a new staircase descending a refreshing lake swim. Located between Jay Peak and Burke Mtn.,and Kingdom Trails in E. Burke, the house is perfect for ski vacations, mountain biking vacations and summer swimming and boating. Other nearby lakes, parks, and hiking trails make for ideal leaf peeping.

                  Car: Necessary

                  Lake Willoughby, also known as theLucerne of America, is considered by some as being the most beautiful lake in Vermont. Located in the town of Westmore, a short distance off 1-91 and 30 miles north of St.Johnsbury, this body of water is known for its crystal clear water, natural sand beaches and great fishing.

                  With a maximum depth of 312 feet, this is also the deepest lake in the Northeast Kingdom, which makes it a favorite of divers. It covers 1692 acres and is bounded one one side by the steep cliffs of Mt. Pisgah and on the other by Mt. Hor. The lake was formed 12,000 years ago, when glacier rivers of ice carved out 'U' shaped valleys and spectacular cliffs of granite in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.

                  The effect is strikingly similar to a Norwegian fjord. About one third of the lake has lakefront properties. There are public beaches at the north and south ends and public access for boaters. The remainder is Willoughby state forest.
