Property description

** During high season, from May 1 to Sept 5, we prefer to book only weekly rentals, for $850 weekly plus cleaning. We take weekend rentals, with a two-night minimum after that, and are happy to negotiate prices for long stays during the off-season. **

Contemporary, artistic, Dwell-magazine aesthetic, fully furnished four season lakehouse with stunning views of Lake Bomoseen.

The house has full lake access with dock, canoe and kayak included. Private, idyllic and a birdwatchers' paradise -- herons and turtles nest on the grounds, and a waterfowl refuge is on the other side of the lake.

Two bedrooms, both with queen beds, one with gorgeous lake view. Spacious sleeping loft is perfect for teenagers. Comfortable screened porch. One of the best features of the house is the huge living room window facing the lake where you can watch stunning sunsets and bird life.

Concrete counters, reclaimed wood floors, recycled cabinets, all-new appliances including gas stove, dishwasher and W/D. High-speed internet.

Designed by environmentally conscious architect with superior insulation and zero VOC paint. Low-shed dogs preferred.

Our part of the lake is perfect for kayaking, bass fishing and relaxing. To swim, Crystal Beach is a mile right down the road. (It's too marshy to swim right off our dock.) We're also minutes from Prospect Pointe Golf Club, Green Mountain National Forest, Castleton State, Green Mountain College, Hubbardton Battlefield and great hiking, antiquing and rails-to-trails biking. To ski, we're about a half hour from Pico, Killington and even closer to Mooslamoo.

Brand new four season home, insulated to the max with gas heat and terrific passive solar. Wonderful in winter and summer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We work in DC but we're Vermonters at heart!

Why the Owner Chose Bomoseen:
We love this part of VT and have relatives in Castleton and Poultney who manage the property for us and will be available to you if you have questions or problems.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The lakeviews are incredible -- it's a wild, rugged lakeview and all the more extraordinary for that. And we appreciate the cool factor of our place --it was designed by an award-winning architect with a careful eye to both aesthetics and enviromental impact. We're just a mile away from the terrific Lakehouse Pub and close to the historic Hubbardton Battlefield. We enjoy walking around there with our dog, as well as running or biking on the rails-to-trail in Castleton. We also enjoy visiting the farmer's market in Rutland, one of the state's biggest, and having a great meal at one of its terrific resteraunts before a performances at the Paramount Theater there. Mostly though, our house is a calm, inspiring refuge from the hectic pace of our daily lives.
