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