Property description

2015 Updates: New kitchen cupboards; new lighting on porch and deck; new 40-ft dock; new wooden walkway to water; drilled water well; handicapped grab bars in bathrooms; new linens, quilts and towels.

Gilliam Lodge is an enchanting and immaculate lakefront cottage that retains all of the character of a time gone by. Gilliam Lodge is a blend of comfort and modern conveniences with the nostalgia of a quieter age when time was measured by the lapping of the waves on the shore, the cry of the loons on the water, and the crackling of the fire in the fireplace.

Gilliam Lodge is set on pristine Lake Seymour, known for it's clear water, excellent summer swimming, and trout and salmon fishing. Our quiet, private location and spacious, comfortable property offer superb opportunities for relaxation, water sports, or getting together with family and friends, as well as touring the sites of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. A beautiful view and spectacular fall colors encircling the lake, also ensure a great leaf-season vacation.

The Great Room, a post and beam with cathedral ceiling, field-stone fireplace, dining and sitting areas, is the centerpiece overlooking the lake. Enjoy dinner at a custom-made table that seats twelve people. A large screened-in porch lets you watch the sunset over the water while listening to the sounds of the lake. An unscreened deck, with gas grill, lounging and dining furniture, also overlooks the water.

The up-to-date kitchen includes everything you need to prepare wonderful meals, and includes stove, range, dishwasher, washer and dryer. Electric baseboard heat means the cabin can be used from mid-May until mid-October.

Four bedrooms and a separate bunkhouse (supplemental charge) provide ample sleeping quarters. Three bathrooms (two with showers) means no waiting in line. WiFi is included.

Lake Seymour is four miles long, the second largest lake completely contained within Vermont's borders. It is a pristine lake, ideal for all water sports, and known for lake, brook and brown trout, and landlocked salmon fishing. Gilliam Lodge's thirty foot dock provides easy access to the water using the canoe, kayak, row boat, and sail boat we provide, or your own boat. Birders will enjoy Lake Seymour's breeding loons, and may catch a site of resident bald eagles.

Gilliam Lodge is the place to go for a few days or more to recharge, and remember what life used to be.
