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.
The cottage is available during the months of June through October and December through mid-March for limited periods. There is a two night minimum stay. Our rates are $125/night, or $750 a week. Vermont rooms and meals tax of 9.0% is added.

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.
