Belmont cottage description

A cozy Vermont mountain cottage one mile to picturesque Belmont Village and Star Lake, and 6 miles to Okemo Ski Resort and Ludlow. A private location with a deck overlooking Star Lake, meadows and mountain vistas (with a 75 mile view!).

Sleeps 2 to 6...... 2 for a romantic get-away, or up to 6 for family and friends:
2 bedrooms [Queen; Double; and Queen Sleep Sofa in living room], 2 baths, living room with woodstove, High Speed Internet, satellite TV, DVD, CD player; dining area; fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, microwave; laundry with washer/dryer. A beautiful mountain get-away, yet close to skiing and other activities.

We are in the heart of the Green Mountains between Killington and Stratton/Bromley. We have beautiful (spectacular!!) views off to the west and northwest (great sunsets). Our cottage sits on a hill surrounded by stately maples and open pastures. It sits at 2100 feet above sea level and overlooks a lake with a 75 mile view across the mountains of Vermont and into New York State (we see the highest mountain in NY). We are one mile from Star Lake which has a beach and boat access. The cottage is surrounded by 180 acres of our land, and hundreds more acres of friends, family and the State of Vermont. We have our own trail network for hiking, snowshoeing and xc skiing, and there's lots of other hiking all around the town and local area. On our land across the road from the cottage there are four beaver ponds that string along a brook that runs into Star Lake.

Although private, our cottage is in the heart of the Vermont ski and tourist area so there are lots of restaurants, shops, and activities within 5 to 10 miles

Winter:
Okemo 6 miles; 5 other major ski areas are 30-40 minutes away (Killington, Pico, Bromley, Stratton, Magic); snowshoe, cross-country ski and sled from house; village skating; 1/2 mile to VAST snowmobile trail system.

Summer & Fall: Peaceful hide-away; nearby mountain lakes - swim, fish, boat rentals. Central to sightseeing, golf, tennis, horseback riding, hiking, biking; near historic Weston Playhouse and Weston Priory. Surrounded by Vermont forests and autumn foliage.

NO SMOKING
DOGS allowed with permission; please inquire when booking.
(sorry, NO CATS)

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: My wife and I are retired and live full time in Belmont, just down the road from our rental cottage. Come visit us in our little corner of paradise :)

                      Why the Owner Chose Belmont:
                      Ron's family began coming to Belmont for summers in 1956 and his parents moved here full-time from New York City in 1970. As a teenager Ron worked on a local farm and the family came up to Belmont for every vacation, all year 'round. Ron and Dottie moved here full-time in 2001 and enjoy all of Vermont's seasons -- You will too :)

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      We are in the heart of the Green Mountains between Killington and Stratton/Bromley, and minutes to Okemo. We have beautiful (spectacular!!) views off to the west and northwest (great sunsets). Our cottage sits on a hill surrounded by stately maples and open pastures. It sits at 2100 feet above sea level and overlooks a lake with a 75 mile view across the mountains of Vermont and into New York State (we see the highest mountain in NY). We are one mile from Star Lake which has a beach and boat access. The cottage is very private being surrounded by 180 acres of our land, and hundreds more acres of friends, family and the State of Vermont. We have our own trail network for hiking, snowshoeing and xc skiing, and there's lots of other hiking all around the town and local area. On our land across the road from the cottage there are four beaver ponds that string along a brook that runs into Star Lake. ..... and we have a moose that visits every now and then [EMAIL us for this picture and many others]. Although private, this house is in the heart of the Vermont ski and tourist area so there are lots of restaurants, shops, and activities within 5 to 10 miles (Mt. Holly, Ludlow, Weston, etc.)
