About the Property

Main House, and detached Carriage House. 6 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)

Summer, Spring and Fall, you'll sit on the large screened slate floor porch with birchbark beams looking out through the trees at the shimmering lake below. Kayakers drift by and across the lake all you see is the hint of houses by the lake and the trees of the mountains of the Green Mountain State Park which go from greens to golds, yellows and reds in the fall. The lake offers boating, fishing and swimming and a loon family whose plaintive cry and laugh you can hear at night and great walks and hikes around the lake. You'll find it so quiet that you can hear the breezes blowing in the trees and sometimes string music from the music camp around the bend. We are at the quiet south end of the lake.
The property offers a large deck on the lake with kayak which may be shared with the owner if they are there and a tennis court and basketball hoop and swings.

The main house which has been in the family for over 50 years has 2 bedrooms with queen beds- one with lake view and 2 baths, large eat in equipped kitchen, full dining room and living room with deer heads and a baby grand piano! There is also a small porch on the kitchen with TV/cable.


There is also a large carriage house adjacent which has a fully finished upstairs with 4 bedrooms and bath which can be additionally rented. Close by in Brandon and Middlebury, you will find farmer's markets, craft stores, great ice cream and baked goods and restaurants and antiquing of course. In the area there are great quiet roads for bike riding and a bike shop in Middlebury where you can rent excellent road and mountain bikes. Skiing is nearby at Middlebury Snowbowl- 20-30 minutes and Killington and Sugarbush an hour away.

Spring and Fall, we also rent a newer fully furnished house next to the older one, which is winterized and has 4 bedrooms upstairs and 2 full baths. There's a cozy sunken seating area with fireplace looking out on the lake which freezes over in the winter.There are pictures of both rentals.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1949

About the owner: The property was purchased by my grandfather and our family has enjoyed it every summer since that year. We now live all around the US and the world but still gather here once a year and enjoy it's wonders. The Main House and Carriage House have the attributes of a beautiful older home and have been well kept up over the years. The newer house was built in 1972 and has an Asian look and feel.

Why the Owner Chose Leicester, VT, USA:
This property is located on the quiet end of the lake and offers both lakeside lounging and relaxing on the large screened porch commanding a panoramic view of the lake.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Summers: Reading, walking, kayaking, biking, playing tennis, watercolor painting, doing puzzles, lying down by the water getting hot then falling in the water to cool off.
