Charming lake front cottage retreat (Pair a Dice)
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

It really was Pair a Dice

  • 4 of 5

The listing was accurate. We very much enjoyed the camp. We biked, swam, kayaked, played cards and walked. There was plenty of parking, and the beds were comfortable. Thanks for a great stay.

Charming cottage is a few miles from the Canadian crossing. Go for breakfast or lunch in Canada, or visit the art show there in the fall. Hiking on Jay Peak is close, if you want to leave the lake... Off the Eastern facing front porch and deck you can watch the sunrise, or watch the weather change! You can also see Canada, Mt. Mansfield and Jay Peak.

The speed liimit on our road is 15 mph, so its great to take a walk from here.

Two nearby general stores have provisions, and the larger grocery store is 15 miles away in Enosburg.

There are a lot of other attractions to see in the local area, but once you are here - we doubt you'll want to leave!

Our quiet retreat is the perfect get away!

Other Activities: kayak, relaxing, cat napping
