Situated at the head of Lake Amherst in Plymouth, Vermont.

If you are looking for a nice place for 10-12 people to enjoy a quintessential old time lake cottage experience with modern, unpretentious creature comforts, and a well-cared for property, we can talk. We've striven to keep the old cottage charm as we remember it ourselves with soft sheets, the smell of wholesome soap, balsam pillows, the crackling of wood in the fire ...to name a few.

Quaint cozy 1930's era cottage updated and maintained for its true charm. In the heart of Vermont near historic Route 100.

Owner info

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Plymouth, VT, USA:
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. I have added many "must-have" conveniences with high quality creature comforts because it needs to be "that" special place. I love entertaining at the cottage because the set-up is so "party 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 Cottage:
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.
