Property description

Our house is located right on Lake Umbagog. You have private swimming and dock steps away from the front porch. This is the perfect place to find quiet and rest in a beautiful post-and-beam lakefront home. Nestled in the heart of the Lake Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge, we are eco-friendly, totally off the grid, and use solar with propane generator support for energy. We supply all-organic soaps in the bathrooms and organic and fragrance-free laundry soap and fabric softener. If you want contact with the outside world, we have excellent, high speed WiFi. You will have cell service if you are a Verizon cell customer through our Verizon Network Extender.

Listen to the loons while you drink your morning coffee on our large open air porch right off the kitchen or on our private dock. Your closest neighbor is 1/2 mile away by water. Enjoy an afternoon on the screened porch or second floor deck. At night, make a fire in the firepit down by the lake after your dinner you've cooked on the Weber gas grill. That's what we used to do with our kids.

You’ll find 2 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms plus a large open sleeping loft off the cathedral ceiling balcony.

The house sleeps 7 (4 adults and 3 kids max due to our well capacity). We have 2 1/2 baths (one full bath on the first floor), a great sound system, Netflix using our Roku internet system, a grand piano and DVD/VCR to play rentals you can get at the Errol General Store. Use our canoes or bring your own and tie up to our dock. Put your boat in at the Public Boat Launch on Rt 26. Bring your dog and enjoy miles of wilderness walks. You’ll go home rested, refreshed and rejuvenated.

We’re a short distance to exceptional fly and lake fishing, fabulous hiking, and flat and white-water paddling. There’s trout fishing on the Rapid River and Androscoggin. A short drive gets you to Grafton Notch and the Appalachian Trail for hiking. And of course, there’s paddling on the incomparable Lake Umbagog as well as the Androscoggin and Megalloway Rivers. The canoe is just steps away from the gorgeous covered deck right off the full kitchen.

Year Purchased: 1993

About: The house was built by well-known post and beam contractor Tom Bembridge and our father in 1993 .Our family and dogs have enjoyed this spectacular property since 1968. Gail and her brothers spent their childhood summers on Lake Umbagog. Now their children have learned to swim, sail, fish and paddle as they continue to do today. This is the perfect spot for your entire family. We provide personalized service and look forward to meeting you! Arthur and Gail Kilkelly are both teachers (Community College of Vermont and South Burlington High School) and serve as the property managers.

Why Errol:
This is Gail's mother's house. We rent it to help meet the costs of her medical needs.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property affords you time to think, to dream, to find your creative spirit. You'll leave with peace in your heart, sun on your face, and a renewed sense of energy and purpose of life.
