"Crooked Window Cottage" lakefront lodging on beautiful Shadow Lake in Glover, Vermont. This new in 2016 two bedroom home is attached to our main house and provides everything necessary for a wonderful vacation get-away! There is a separate entrance, deck and driveway and your privacy is assured, but we are right next door to offer help and advice on local points of interest if needed. There is an 18 foot long breezeway that separates the main house from the cottage and there are no shared walls between the two spaces...we value your privacy and ours. The 900 square foot unit has two bedrooms upstairs, one with a full size bed and one with one twin bed and one full size bed, a full bath with gorgeous tile shower and a fully equipped kitchen with gleaming granite counter tops. There are hardwood floors throughout. There is a flat screen TV with cable and wireless internet access. All linens are provided. The views of the lake are spectacular and there is a private beach area and dock along with a rowboat for your use. There is also a large deck off of the living room. Shadow Lake is a 199 acre freshwater lake with lots of good fishing and swimming. Glover is located in the Northeast Kingdom and close to several ski areas. There is a general store in town along with Parker Pie, Red Sky Trading and the Bread and Puppet Museum. There are several other shops, including antiques, in nearby Barton. There are other lakes close by, including the famous Lake Willoughby, and the world renowned Hill Farmstead Brewery is about 10 minutes away. In the summer, Greensboro (about 15 minutes) offers live theater. Cabot Creamery is about a half hour away and Ben and Jerry's is about 40 minutes, along with Lost Nation Brewery and the Alchemist near Stowe. We are about 20 miles from the Canadian border and Lake Memphramagog. There are plenty of hiking and biking opportunities in the area, so you can have an active vacation or just relax and listen to the call of the loons.

About Kristine Tooker
Hi! My name is Kristine and I grew up at the Jersey Shore but have recently moved to Vermont after retiring from my career as a high school teacher/librarian and an adjunct professor at a community college. I also retired from many years serving as a councilwoman on my town's governing body and on several boards and committees. My son Caleb and his wife Jen own an organic farm near where I live with my partner Eric, a retired state police officer, and our rescue Calico cat, Luna. I enjoy traveling, reading, baking, walking, kayaking and swimming. In the winters, we escape to our condo in Mazatlan, Mexico, which we also offer for rent when we are not enjoying it ourselves. Thanks so much for your interest in my properties!

Perfect! Exactly what we needed!
Just stayed for Father’s Day weekend with my dad and pre-teen daughter. The space was perfect! The view was great! Quiet outside throughout the day and night so you could leave the windows open. Great communication with the owners. They also shared lots of tips for things to do in the area and that was essential for our trip as pretty much everything we did came from their advice. Bread and Puppet Museum is a must, beyond incredible. Excellent lunch and walking around in Newport about 20-30 min north. Took pictures on the Canadian border in Derby Line. Local charm in Glover and Barton were great too. Perfect spot for a weekend getaway!

Beautiful rental. Bigger than it looks!
Everything was lovely with this rental. The property was beautiful and directly across the street from Shadow Lake. The cottage itself was much roomier than expected. 5 Stars.
