Lake Willoughby cottage description

Willoughby Lake in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, welcomes swimmers and boaters to its clean, clear waters. Sheltered by Mount Pisgah on the east and Mount Hor on the west, Willoughby resembles a fjord, a mile wide and six and half miles long. Enjoy nearby hiking, mountain biking, and golfing at some of the most beautiful courses in the northeast.

The cottage offers lakeside privacy with a large yard bordered by privacy hedges. The 1.5 acre yard makes for great lawn gatherings and recreation. Two kayaks are available for use.


WELCOME TO SHAKEY JAKE’S COTTAGE 1074 Vt. Route 5A: The stove in the living room is propane only. Turn it on by using the thermostat on the wall.

Garbage: please use only the clear bags that are supplied. Garbage is picked up Tuesdays and Saturdays at the top of the driveway at approximately 7 a.m. Don’t put it out the night before because the crows will be breaking open the bags! They are such clever birds!!

Ducks: there are always ducks swimming by but please don’t feed them. They end up contaminating the water.

There is satellite TV available (television is out on the porch). Please do not order any movies as there is a fee involved.

There are 2 kayaks available. Anyone using them needs to be wearing a lifejacket. Please pull them back up on the lawn after use. You should bring your own lifejackets for boat use.

Our water supply comes directly from the lake so we would advise that you use bottled water for drinking.

Linens and towels are supplied.


There is some wood next to the outdoor fireplace. If you need more you may purchase it at the Campground store (approx. 2 miles north on route 5A).

There are two local papers published during the week: Newport Daily Express and the Caledonian Record. The Chronicle is a weekly and available on the stands on Wednesdays. All of these are available in Barton or Orleans.

If you have pets please do not leave them alone in the cottage.
Our neighbors have complained in the past about barking dogs!

There are two large supermarkets in Newport/Derby (north on route 5A: Price Chopper and Shaw’s. There is a local market in Orleans and one in Barton (both are 7 miles away).

Check in time: 2 P.M., check-out by 10 A.M.

Please leave the cottage and grounds as you found them.

HAVE FUN!
