About the owner: Owner Description: I am a retired postmaster. I had been living at the advertised cottage year round until my 82 year old father fell out of a 20 foot high tree stand while hunting on the property. I had to leave this special place in order to care for him. I now offer to share this home with you.
Why the Owner Chose St. Johnsbury: Why the Owner Chose Symes Pond: This property is best described as 'A piece of Heaven'. The wooded mountains slope down to meet the pond. There is absolutely no road noise. All that can be heard is an occasional call of the Loon, the hoot of an owl, or perhaps the howl of the coyote at night.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The Unique Benefits Of This Cottage: After dark, sit in the hot tub which overlooks the pond. Shut off the jets, turn off the lights, and just listen. Your space becomes one with the surrounding woods. You may hear a deer crossing just above you or geese landing on the pond below. The call of the loon or the hoot of an owl breaks the silence. You look up and see the stars or perhaps the blinking lights of a jet thousands of feet above as it crosses the night sky. This is the place to let all your cares evaporate. You will go home with a new perspective. And you will come back.
