'Lake House', Landgrove, in the foothills of Vermont's Green Mountains

Bedrooms 5
Property type chateau / country house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Very comfortable lodge-style retreat, all amenities, close to 4 ski mountains.

-Perfect family retreat with 5 bedrooms offering plenty of space for guests and nanny or caretaker.

-Beautiful, serene location in Southern Vermont, close to skiing yet complete privacy in a beautiful natural setting. Comfortable, lodge-style retreat with large pond and swimming dock on beautifully manicured grounds in a classic rural Vermont setting between the towns of Weston and Londonderry.

-Nestled in the forest at the end of a quiet dead-end road, Lake House is set in beautiful natural surroundings providing the ultimate in peace and privacy. No shops or commercial development. Lake House is a large, lodge-style home built to the highest standards that blends luxury and comfort with immediate access to nature and the outdoors.

The swimming in the lake is superb and one of the main attractions in summer. The lake is a very large, (1 acre plus) manmade pond with a small manmade beach, a diving platform and clear water that is spring fed ( two feeder ponds ensure the water flowing into the pond is clean). The bottom is sand.The depth averages around 14 ft and in the middle, the deepest part, is 16 ft. In short, swimming here is a delight and the house is called Lake house because the pond is a prominent feature of the property. Our kids love to spend their whole day around the lake

Nearby is the quaint village of Weston with the renowned 'Vermont Country Store' and Weston Playhouse theater. City of Manchester for shopping 20 minutes away. Conveniently located in the foothills of the Green Mountains National Forest between Stratton and Okemo (20 minutes) and with Bromley (10 minutes) and Magic Mountain (just 5) minutes around the corner, Lake House is the perfect family retreat. No traffic, no noise, just peace and quiet.

Some of Vermont's best restaurants like The Mill Tavern in Londonderry and Johnny's Seesaw in Peru are within 5-10 minutes. Cross-country ski from your doorstep into the natural forest across the road, or start from the best cross-country skiing in Southern Vermont at nearby Greendale Rd.

Once you settle down in front of the huge fireplace in the warm, comfortable living room, or down at the private beach, life leaves nothing else to be desired.

The superbly crafted timber frame house with inviting interiors provides the ultimate in comfort and overlooks the 1-acre lake after which the house is named. Relax on one of the terraces or the private beach by the lake, or walk the beautiful grounds. This fabulous property will fill you with a sense of peace and quiet.

Open floor plan, nice bedrooms each with their own individual bathroom, large family room with terrace.

Garage apartment with fireplace and kitchen offers additional room for friends, family or caretaker/nanny. (additional cost and cleaning fee)

Family Weekend of Fun and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful property for a long weekend get away with our family and friends (11 in total) this house was more than large enough and we all left like we had plenty of room. The property is kept in incredible condition and shows the owners care and enjoyment that they must get from it as well. Whether it was time spent kayaking around the pond, swimming, or playing yard games the surrounding area offers as many relaxing options as the inside. Luisa was incredibly accommodating and provided us access to her grill and her fire pit as well, we enjoyed our time grilling, making smores by the fire and enjoying the beauty of the surrounding area.

We instantly fell in love with the property and have already talked about looking at again for more family rentals! I would certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend enjoying the outdoors, whether it be nearby golf, or mountain biking, or just lounging by the pond and spending time soaking in some sun, this property won't disappoint!

One of a kind!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Lake House. The property is beualtiful, private and has so much to offer. We spent time in the lake as well as playing games in the large backyard where we grilled every day. The home is laid out perfectly with plenty of space and beautiful views from almost every room. Luisa took time to share great suggestions for food and beverage nearby and the location is very convenient. We will be back.

Did you ever feel like you were right at home, immediately?

  • 5 of 5

This is the easiest review I have ever written. We rented the house for one week with three families. There were 6 adults and 5 children aged between 10 and 15. We loved this home. The house was very clean and well cared for. In fact the house is so nice I don't even think the photos do it justice. Swimming in the lake was great and is probably the nicest lake (for swimming) I have ever been in. Very clean, nice bottom, clear water. The house had plenty of room for all the families with two full master bedrooms. Plenty of bathrooms. We also liked the ice machine in the kitchen. The fridge in the garage was great because we could keep some drinks out there. Just perfect. Luisa checked on us and ensured that we had everything we needed. She really cared about making our trip perfect!!!!

We loved the area. Since it was summer we spent most of our time swimming in the lake. When we ventured out we enjoyed seeing Weston. Check out the playhouse there. We also toured Hildene and the Coolidge Homestead. These were great trips you may want to check out if you are in the area. We also enjoyed the adventure courses at Bromley ski area. Great summer activity. I did some cycling in the area and enjoyed that too. But be aware that the house is on a gravel/dirt road and some of the roads are very hilly. Not really suited for cycling by younger kids.

You will love this place. Trust me.
