Property description

This 3 story, 3 bedroom lakefront cottage is well situated to enjoy the views and activities of the surrounding area. Wonderful panoramic views of lake and stream can be seen from within the house as well as outside. Mountain top-lakefront home located in the heart of the beautiful Green Mountains in a private lake community. Large grassy open property. Enjoy swimming, kayaking, canoeing and fishing on the lake-use our own boats.

Colors abound with wonderful fall foliage display. View from the comfort of our home-or hike out the door into the surrounding mountains to see the wonderful changing scenery.

Winter skiing 20 minutes from door to slopes.Great (snowmobiling ) . Close to Long Trail for hiking, X-C ski right out the back door, 15 miles to down hill skiing at Mt. Snow/ Haystack, 35 minutes to skiing at Stratton which boasts a great gondola instead of a ski-lift if you don't like getting off the lift (like me). Manchester has great outlet shopping too.
In the nearby area, just down the mountain from our home, enjoy the wonderful historic town of Bennington home of the Grandma Moses Museum, the Revolutionary War Bennington Monument. Re enactments of Revolutionary War Battles. Antiquing, pottery and art in Bennington. Attractive university campus. Charming Manchester Village with the famous estate 'Hildene' home of Robert Todd Lincoln

Interior of home has rustic charm with wood paneling and wood floors throughout. Cathedral ceiling lends a feeling of openness. 3 story centrally located spiral staircase allows you to easily to get from floor to floor. Each bedroom has privacy as there is one bedroom on each floor. Ground floor den and bunk room have outdoor access to lake through sliding glass doors. Large outside deck with picnic table and grill to enjoy the outdoors, look at the lake and listen to the babbling brook as you enjoy your meals- I love eating outside in the morning, with the sun shining on me and a good book to read. Just got a new big screen TV for your enjoyment!

Enjoy the fall foliage all around. Clean mountain air, hiking, wonderful views of the changing seasons right outside your window.

Large, comfortable pet-friendly outside property. Two pieces of property; walk out the back door to the lake. Pets welcome and love to run around in our large fenced in property next door.

Owner info

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.
