Lake Salem Cottages are four family owned cottages located on a sandy beach, each with at least a 100 foot private frontage on Lake Salem in the famous Northeast Kingdom near the Canadian border in Derby, Vermont. They are located on a peninsular of land separating Big Salem Lake from Little Salem Lake. Cottagers enjoy unique access to both lakes, which are excellent for fishing, with plentiful bass, walleye and salmon. Each cottage has its own dock and boat which can be used with a small out board motor. Many of our cottagers have been coming to Lake Salem for years. About two thirds of the weeks are taken by the same families each year, but there are good weeks available for newcomers throughout the summer.
The Northeast Kingdom is one of Vermont's hidden treasures. The area has been called the Switzerland of Vermont due to the presence of such beautiful mountains like Jay Peak, Burke, and Owls Head. The presence of numerous lakes such as Mephramagog, Seymour, Willoughby, Caspian, and Echo in addition to Lake Salem add to the beauty of the area. Montreal lies less than two hours away for a day of international food and tourism. The area has several championship level golf courses, tennis courts are available, and the fishing at Lake Salem is renowned as the state of Vermont stocks the lake. Hiking trails abound as the Northern spur of the Appalachian Trail passes close by. The best time, though, is spent right at the lake relaxing, swimming, reading a book, doing a puzzle, fishing, and generally getting away from it all. Because the cottages are all in a row (although very private), they are ideal for sharing a vacation with another family in a neighboring cottage. We try to accommodate such groups to the extent that we can.
The cottages are mainly filled each year with returning cottagers. This year we have some ideal weeks available due to late cancellations.
