Overview

About the property

Sleeps 4. 2 Bedrooms. 1 Bathroom. Summers only.

Summer rental available June through September. Cottage sits on a bluff on the eastern shore of Lake Memphremagog in Newport, Vermont. Views from the house and patio across the lake to the north and west into Canada. Private beachfront accessed by 50 wooden stairs winding down to the water with a wooden deck about a third of the way up. Lake off of steps is shallow, about 3 feet deep, for 150 yards or so. A 30 foot dock extends from the steps in to the water, but he water is less than two feet deep at the end of the dock. This allows for canoe, kayak and shallow draft boat access but not for boats that draw more than 18 inches. Cottage is 800 square feet and was built in 1910. Two bedrooms upstairs. One with full size bed and one with two twins. Small bathroom with shower (no tub) is on first floor. Heat, if necessary, is provided by a gas wood stove with thermostat and remote control. Kitchen is not large but is quite functional. Small dining area and large sitting area with views across the lake complete the first floor. High speed wireless internet but no TV. Lot is mostly wooded in an area of summer cottages with neighboring houses about 75 feet to each side. Downtown Newport is about a 5 minute drive or 15 minute bike ride. The town is also readily accessible by boat. Please ask about pets.

Oh, that view...and dock, and hammock, and...

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was sweet and comfortable with pleasing decor. The longer I was there, the more I did not want to leave. I was very glad that I brought a lot of food to make my meals, because with the views, hammock, and dock I hated to leave and rarely did. (One trip to Magog, into Newport for the boat ride and for checking it out and getting a few items) Loved that the water is shallow close in, that the bike path is close, and walking in the neighborhood was pleasant. I love to take baths and all the good things about staying here far outweighed that there is no tub...I still call up those views now and then and revisit the beauty in my imagination. Hoping one day I can revisit this special place in person. (Oh, fyi-for those who do want to do a lot of cooking- I took a small salad spinner, a spiralizer, and a few other kitchen tools I thought would certainly not be supplied and it was good I did think ahead for those types of things.)

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this cottage! The views of he lake from here are expansive and spectacular. The cottage is very cute and tidy, and although not a large home, it's a very good use of space. We swam from the dock every day we were here. Short drive to town, which is very cute and friendly. Overall, it was wonderful! Would definitely stay there again!

Perfect Lake Front Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This lake front cottage is absolutely charming! It was just what we were looking for. The location of the cottage is perfect and the views are stellar. The owners went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and make our stay wonderful. It was our first time to Lake Memphremagog and we were very impressed. The lake is gorgeous. In addition to the water activities, we really enjoyed biking on the bike path along the lake. Our two teenagers loved it too. We will definitely be going back!

Little Cottage with Big Views

  • 5 of 5

This is cottage may have one of the best views of Lake Memphremagog. We were there for five days in late June. The bedrooms are small but comfortable and the kitchen though small is fully functional with quality cookware. The best part are the views. The Living/dining area have panoramic views of the lake up into Canada. At 8:30 we saw the Vermont sunset but could see the Canadian sunset until past 9:00. If you're an early riser you can even catch a bit of the beautiful sunrise. As a visitor to Lake Willoughby in the NEK for years I was very impressed to get both the sunset and sunrise. There is a lovely dock in which you can bask in the sun til it sets. Can home with quite a tan!
