Sports & Adventure Activities
A very beautiful home with a nice view of the lake.
Very impressive living quarters and a comfortable new king bed. Our activities were somewhat curtailed by the rain, but we still managed visits to Derby Line, Newport and Magog, Canada...all very worthwhile. Scrabble saved the evenings. The delicious contents of the welcome basket were put to good use. The fireplace was nice in the cool evenings.
We stayed at Linda & TJ's gorgeous home the first week in September, and the place is beyond gorgeous. There is ample room for many guests, though it was only my fiance and I this time. The home is so well kept and cared for, there is every amenity in the home you can think of. The downstairs 'playroom' is perfect for just hanging out and watching movies and Netflix, the upstairs loft area is great to sit in and read, enjoying the beautiful views of the lake. The main floor has a wonderful living room, with 2 comfortable reclining coaches. A fireplace, two glass doors leading out to the deck. A kitchen that is updated and full of anything you may need. The master bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed, which you NEVER find on vacation! The owners, TJ & Linda, were beyond accommodating. Due to health issues, we had to postpone our vacation - I had thought it would be a complete loss, since it was one week before we were scheduled to leave. Linda bent over backwards to let us change the dates, and luckily they had availability - but they were both so accommodating to help us, and they 100% did not have to. They knew how much we wanted and needed this vacation, and they did everything they could to make our stay beyond memorable. We will be going back, for sure. I never write reviews, but I wanted to make sure everyone knows not only how great this home is, but also how great Linda and TJ are!
Thank you Jodi for the very kind words. We were happy we could make it work so that you could enjoy your vacation. We try our best to provide everything you may need to make your vacation a wonderful experience. We look forward to having you return! Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive and thoughtful review !
Beautiful home on gorgeous lake.
The home is beautiful and comfortable. We had six in our group, 4 adults and 2 children. The kids loved the loft! We enjoyed the kayaks every day and the view morning to night. It was the perfect spot for a relaxing vacation! Thank you!
Perfect Lake House
House was clean and well stocked to help keep it clean. Perfect and beautiful location on Lake Salem. Plenty of room for everyone and lots of things to do in the home on those rainy days. If ever back in the area, would love to stay there again.
Beautiful House for our Family Vacation
This house has everything. Everything is well appointed and clean. It overlooks the lake, which is not that busy. The house has all you need. The grill was sparkling clean, there are hooks in the shower to hang bathing suits, and there are lots of towels, several boats with life jackets for everyone, games, etc. The basket of water shoes was handy (recommended for walking in the lake). There were lots of beds. The one in the basement TV room was particularly comfortable! We were there when it was above 90 outside - and the room air conditioners and fans kept things cool. I imagine you don't need them most of the time this far north. There is some great hiking and swimming in the area.
The lake is small enough to kayak around - and in the mornings I kayaked right next to a pair of loons. Really lovely. The owners have cleared the growth in the lake in front of their dock - so the water was very clear. The lake is pretty shallow pretty far out, which is great for kids.
The only thing that was less than 5 star was that the property is right next to a major road (major for VT) and something about the acoustics of the lake makes it very loud when a car - and particularly a truck - drives by. Inside the house was pretty quiet - but it did reach the deck and yard overlooking the lake.
The house was beautiful and the property was amazing.
The weather was great. It rained only one day and we used that day to tour a maple syrup plant where the owner took about an hour explaining all the steps required in making great maple syrup.
The view of the lake is beautiful especially early in the morning where the sun rises over the mountain and the mist is still on the water.
All of our special needs were addressed by the owners due to us having two small children and everything we needed was there to make this vacation a success . I have already recommended this property to my friends as a great vacation get-away.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review! We know what it is like to reserve a vacation home online, then keep your fingers crossed it will be all you hoped. Our goal is to try to exceed your expectations, to have our lake Salem home be a part of some wonderful family memories! We are happy you and your family enjoyed your stay and hope we can be part of some guy future vacation plans.
