Owner info

About the owner: We are professionals who live and work in Vermont. Alecia is in the health care industry and John works at the Woodstock Inn. Son Ian works in the accounting department at the Woodstock Inn and son Nathan is finishing his final year at UVM as a pre-med student. The picture featured is the cottage just after it was built in 1934. It has remained in the family. We really love our cottage and its uniqueness as a real old time lake cottage. You won't find it trendy or cookie cutter, but rather true to its original intent as a family retreat.

Why the Owner Chose Plymouth, VT, USA:
They just don't build them like this anymore.....Family built.....Never purchased..... Built in 1934 and added to in 1959. Since then we have continuously updated yet have kept that original cottage charm. We do have some rough edges in places, not many, but they are there and it only adds to the charm. Centrally located between Killington & Okemo. We are in the heart of Vermont off historic Route 100. What sets us apart are our large bedrooms with high quality linens, down comforters, and 100% Egyptian cotton towels. The cottage is such a relaxing, calming place. We have added many "must-have" conveniences with high quality creature comforts because it needs to be "that" special place. We love entertaining at the cottage because the set-up is so "entertainment friendly" and there is plenty of room for many friends to stay. The area is packed with fun things to do such as shopping in beautiful Woodstock, skiing/hiking at either Killington or Okemo, Long Trail Brewery lunches, tours & samples at the Plymouth Cheese Factory, and trips to Buttermilk Falls to name only a few. Harry's is my favorite restaurant and is less than 10 minutes down the road. Check out our FB page for the latest updates: Vermont Cottage on FB.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Wake up every morning to a gorgeous view of the lake no matter what season. Swimming/kayaking/hiking in summer, ice skating/snowmobiling/ice fishing in winter.
