Year Purchased: 1993
About the owner: We are two teachers who love swimming and the outdoors. We have four boys who love to swim and ski. We also have two boxers who occasionally come with us which is why we have half of our property fenced to allow the dogs to run and play. We are a pet friendly home.
Why the Owner Chose Woodford: Situated on a lake, close to many historic areas for those who love to visit historic homes and watch historic events. The Bennington Monument was built in memory of The Green Mountain Boys from Vermont who did their part during the Revolutionary War. The monument looks just like the Washington Monument-you can go up into it and view 4 states-
VT. NH. MA. NY from the top-many historic homes and museums, plus battle reenactments in town.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: House is very homey, nice and warm in the winter time and cool in the summer. Great views from wherever you sit. Walk right out the door to the lake and enjoy a morning ride in one of our 3 boats kept up there for your use-2 kayaks and 1 large canoe. Sit on the deck while you enjoy a cup of coffee, grill a meal on the charcoal grill, listen to the sounds of the stream or just enjoy the quiet and relax. It may sound corny but I say good bye to the lake whenever I leave, knowing I'll always return.
