Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: We are a family of four (with two grown daughters) now spread between California and Florida, though we raised our children in Boston with summers in our Vermont house. Having retired to Florida, the house does not get as much use, and we decided it was time to share our special home on the Connecticut River with others!

Why the Owner Chose Waterford, VT, USA:
Within easy reach of Boston, the setting was perfect for a peaceful weekend out of the city. With small children, the ability to let them roam the woods and river was priceless, while the river sports, hiking and tennis proved relaxing for adults as well.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
A morning swim in the river, when the water is like glass and the birds are out, followed by coffee on the porch, is the perfect summer morning. Foliage season is spectacular in this area, with the woods surrounding the house ablaze with color. Crisp morning hikes with leaves underfoot is a fall treat - try to take in the fall colors from the lookout point at the top of Chamberlin Mt, a 45 minute hike you can start from the front door!
