Property description

Lamoille County, Vermont is the ideal combination of natural beauty, active lifestyle and arts/entertainment. At the Cottage on Butternut Bend, you are in the center of it all.

The cottage is located on 25 secluded acres at the foot of Laraway Mountain, on the bank of the North Branch of the Lamoille River. It is the perfect base from which to explore the surroundings, or simply chill. On a hot summer day, fish, float, swim, or relax in the cool clear waters of the river. In fall, walk our trails in the meadow and hillsides, or go to a nearby trailhead of the Long Trail and hike to the top of Laraway. In winter, use our trails for snowshoe or Nordic skiing. For alpine skiers, Smugglers Notch is 16 miles and Jay Peak is 24 miles away. In any season, antique stores, galleries, farmers markets, restaurants, breweries/winery/distillery are just a short drive away.

The cottage is fully renovated with completely equipped kitchen, cozy living room with wood stove, and bathroom on the 1st floor. The 2nd floor contains the bedroom with comfortable queen bed and private balcony overlooking the surroundings. A large deck with grill, picnic table and chairs complete the amenities.

We are located on the Belvidere/Waterville town line, with 2000 feet of river frontage. The river is ideal for wading, sunning, floating, fly fishing (license please) and swimming in the natural 'lap pool'. A network of short trails run along the river, through the meadow and onto the hillside. Summer hikes and fall foliage are one step off the cottage deck. In the winter, the trails are ideal for Nordic and snowshoes.

Smuggler's Notch Resort is 16 miles to the south with 2000+ vertical of Alpine skiing. It is consistently ranked as one of the best family ski resorts. Their Arbortek Zipline Canopy Tours are run year-round.

24 miles northeast is Jay Peak which has the highest natural snowfall east of the Rockies. Jay also has the 'Pump House', a state of the art indoor waterpark. Ski/ride in the morning and surf in the afternoon.

Belvidere Center and Waterville each have a small market and are 4 miles away. Jeffersonville has shops, markets, restaurants, a microdistillery, and other services is located 9 miles to the south. A few miles further west is Boydon Valley Winery. Johnson, home to Johnson State College is 10 miles to the southeast with additional shopping and dining. The nearest conventional supermarkets and medical facilities are in Morrisville, another 8 miles east of Johnson. Lost Nation and Rock Art microbreweries are also located in Morrisville.

Burlington VT, one of the 'coolest' small cities in the country is 45 miles away. And Montreal is a 1-1/2 hour drive from the cottage.


Owner info

About the owner: We started out in Vermont 36 years ago. Our oldest was born here and youngest now lives and teaches nearby. We always planned to return, and in 2012 purchased this wonderful property. What became the “cottage” was an abandoned camp, suitable for habitation only by local wildlife. With vision, hard work and perseverance, the cottage took shape. We hope you enjoy this beautiful area as much as we do.
