About the Property

2+ Bedroom, 1 Bath Cabin With Gorgeous Sunrise Views Just Steps From The Water

This charming, comfortable cottage is perfect for your active family vacation, girlfriends' getaway or romantic retreat. We invite you to leave your busy lives behind and bask in this private, comfortable and convenient oasis on one of Vermont's best kept vacation secrets, the enchanting Lake Hortonia.

On the first floor you'll find a fully equipped kitchen, living room, dining room, 1 bedroom with two sets of twin-size bunk beds, and a bath with shower, washer and dryer. The second story has a bedroom with queen size bed, and an open sleeping area with a fold-out futon sofa-bed. The house has a woodburning stove, screened-in dining porch, gas BBQ grill, large new deck, parking for several cars, WiFi, and lake views from all rooms. Kayaks, a canoe, and a rowboat come with the rental for exploring the lake, or you can rent a paddle boat or pontoon from the country store just down the road. If you fish, you're in good company, as Lake Hortonia is widely known as one of the best fishing lakes in the state!

The cottage is ideally located, making day trips easy, whether you like to hike, bike, shop, visit museums or cultural centers, or simply explore the many back roads and charming villages Vermont is famous for.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: The cottage's owners, Bill and Carol Campbell, are a retired minister and teacher who spend three seasons at their home in Middlebury, Vermont, and their summers at the cottage next door to the rental, called "Cheerio." Their children, Cathy, Beth, and Don, spend as much time at the lake as possible, and Cathy and her family own the white cottage on the other side of the rental, called "Stillwater."

Why the Owner Chose Hubbardton, VT, USA:
Lake Hortonia has been home to our family for five generations, beginning with the purchase and construction of the property next to the rental (the little green cabin) in the 1920s by our great grandfather, Charles Morris. "Cheerio" is now owned by his grandson and granddaughter-in-law, Bill and Carol Campbell. The white cottage on the other side of the rental was purchased in 1999 by Charles' great-granddaughter and her husband as their own summer getaway. Our family's dream has long been to own the property in between, and in 2014, this became a reality. We are excited to be able to share this new cottage with renters, and hope you will come to love Lake Hortonia as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
One of the best things about Lake Hortonia is that is conveniently located, yet off the beaten path. It's a peaceful but fun-filled lake, at times busy with tubing and waterskiing, at other times very still and quiet.
