We loved the old-fashioned charm of this cottage with all the modern conveniences and it was very clean. We stayed 7 nights which weren’t always warm - Vermont in June - but the gorgeous fieldstone fireplace kept us toasty warm! The screened, wrap-around porch was a delightful place to spend hours just enjoying the peace and quiet and the lovely views of the lake. Best of all were the colorful morning sunrises reflecting on the lake! It was the perfect home away from home for us after spending the day visiting family. Thank you again, Keith, for being such a gracious host.
Everything was amazing. It is such a peaceful and beautiful spot and is ideal for getting away from life's hectic pace.
The owner couldn't have been more responsive and accommodating and the care taker who lives down the road was fantastic also. It is apparent that not only do they care greatly for this fabulous place, they also care about providing a great experience for their guests. The only thing we could have asked for was better weather and I have no doubt they would have provided it if they could!
The cottage itself is perfect and the fire pit and huge screened in porch were favorite spots, especially for listening to the loons. It was truly a wonderful week and everything exceeded our expectations. Nothing but the highest of recommendations from us!
Spectacular! The view of the lake is amazing. It's so great having instant access to the lake.
We loved the cabin! It was so clean and decorated beautifully. The screened in porch is amazing part of the overall experience. So great to enjoy the outdoors without worrying about the bugs. We lived our time there and can't wait to come back.
Lovely, peaceful, quiet camp looking across South Bay.
Your camp on Lake Memphremagog was just exactly what my wife and I were looking for: peace, quiet, rest and relaxation. The camp was clean and homey, beautifully appointed with everything we could possibly have wanted. South Bay, Lake Memphremagog and Newport are just a beautiful corner of the earth. We biked the trail up the east side of the lake to the Canadian border, we hiked Jay Peak to the summit and took an airplane ride around the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. The weather cooperated and we had a perfect week!
Perfect spot for a week away from it all.
From our point of view, this is a wonderful old fashioned cottage that is in a beautiful, quiet location. It has remarkable privacy for a lakeside location. We did not hear or see anyone, which we prefer. Only noise at night was a loon in the distance. Distance to town beach, tennis courts, boat launches, wonderful cafes and delicious Thai restaurant was inside 10 minutes. Cabin is laid out nicely. We slept on the comfy bed better than we do at home. The portion of the lake this cottage is on is quiet and undeveloped. If you like nature, quiet, and privacy, this place is hard to beat.
The cabin is just as described in the listing and in photos. Very well kept, with a beautiful view of the lake and woods. The wrap-around screened porch has a dining table and a separate sitting area with a great view of the lake. There is also a two-person rocker down by the bonfire pit. A short path leads down to your own private dock. The kitchen was well stocked not only with pots and pans, dishes, etc, but also with basic cooking ingredients like olive oil, vinegar, and spices. There is a gas grill on the deck just outside the kitchen. In addition to two bedrooms and a loft for sleeping, the cabin had an inside dining room and sitting area next to a fireplace. Keith provided us with sheets and towels that were frankly more luxurious than the ones we had at home. In the mornings and afternoons we would listen to birdsong and watch as goldfinch and other rare birds flitted around our clearing. In the evenings we would lay with the windows open and fall asleep to the sound of bullfrogs in in the reeds below.
Keith was on hand to answer any of our questions, and the neighbors down the road were also very friendly and helpful. The cabin is a few minutes' drive from Newport, which has restaurants, a grocery store, and other amenities. It's easy to drive to nearby hiking trails, and the Canada border is just a few miles away. We rented kayaks and spent a day exploring the lake. I highly recommend this cabin for any couple or family seeking a quiet getaway that's still close to the comforts of civilization.
