Lovely week on Lake Willoughby

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in the Nod Away house. Especially loved the use of kayaks, and we paddled every morning. We explored the nearby towns, read books, had lovely blue skies most of the week, and gorgeous sunsets. A truly relaxing place, beautifully situated for views of the lake and the Gap. There were a few windows with broken cranks that did not open, but overall the space was cozy and comfortable. Thank you, Tim, for sharing this special spot. We hope to come back.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay Kathy. Another guest mentioned the windows and I have ordered the parts needed to repair them, which should be done in a few weeks. Thank you for your feedback.

Perfect location, beautiful views...cozy getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This sweet cottage was the perfect getaway for our family. The listing portrayed in the description was spot on. The property was super clean and organized. This place is a gem.

The owners could not be nicer and we would recommend this property to friends and family.

We loved all of the "toys" including canoe & kayaks.

Great spot on the lake, fantastic views! Charming lakeside cottage with great access to Lake Willoughby. Our family loved having boats and a dock all to ourselves.

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing, private, and casual, this cottage was what we were hoping for and more. Exactly like the photos, the location of this hideaway sits on a gorgeous, clean lake in Vermont. We had everything we needed...a quiet, scenic place to unwind, kayaks to explore the lake with, and some challenging hiking trails nearby. Definitely enjoyed our dinners at the lovely Inn up the road, and loved hearing the loons call to each other across the lake. Thanks for a wonderful, charming place to unwind and regroup.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot stress enough how wonderful this property is. The water is just a few steps out the door! We kayaked all day, were visited each morning and night by a family of ducks, and swam like fish! The location is great. It's private and the only neighbors are really friendly, (our son played with theirs for days!). There's a nice restaurant at the Inn a little ways down the road. A cliff jump, hiking, and Sunset Rock within a mile. And the beach is a three minute drive or great to kayak to. The house has charm, it's well maintained, and has everything you need. Overall a wonderful stay and would recommend!
