This is a simple, beautiful place to get away and reconnect with family and friends. “Lookout” is a lovely 2-bedroom cottage sitting right on the waterfront, where you can enjoy the views of crystal clear Lake Dunmore, the calls of the loons and the beauty of Vermont. Facing West, you get fabulous sunsets, visible from the screened-in porch and living room. You'll also enjoy your swimming area with diving raft, two kayaks (life jackets provided), and fishing from your dock. Take time to explore the area's hiking trails, visit the local farmers' markets, visit some antique shops or artisan cheese makers. Or, just relax and recharge. Welcome to Heaven!
Inside Lookout Cabin: Like many of the older cabins in this area, the water is supplied by the lake. We have a newly-installed double-filter +UV light purification system that renders the water potable and purer than most bottled water for purchase! Kitchen has pots, pans, coffee maker, dishes, microwave and utensils. Small TV/DVD player. Movies, books, games, cards, and stereo. Blankets and kitchen linens provided. Guests must provide own bed linens and towels.
Outside Lookout Cabin: You'll never tire of the lake -- it's clear and clean, perfect for swimming and fishing. The anchored diving raft, which you share with the neighbors, provides hours of entertainment for the kids. Your dock is a virtual outdoor living room, where you can play games, have meals, fish, or simply relax on a lounge chair. After a full day, you can wash up in the outdoor shower and then head to town for a movie. You're just 20 minutes away from the historic town of Middlebury, where there are theaters, concerts, farmers markets and summer events. Burlington, Vermont is just about an hour drive north.
Please note that this is a smoke-free property. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the grounds or in the cottage.

About the owner: I grew up in Randolph, VT and my parents bought a little cabin on Lake Dunmore when I was just 12 years old. My summers were filled with rock-jumping, fishing, star-gazing and all of the other joys of being on a lake in Vermont. 30 years later, my husband and I were thrilled to be able to buy this cabin next to theirs. Blessed! (Of course, we have to rent it out in order to pay the mortgage, but it's worth it for the week or two we can be there every summer.) We hope you love it as much as we do.
