Overview

About the property

Vermont Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

A cozy Vermont mountain cottage one mile to picturesque Belmont Village and Star Lake, and 6 miles to Okemo Ski Resort and Ludlow. A private location with a deck overlooking Star Lake, meadows and mountain vistas (with a 75 mile view!).

Sleeps 2 to 6...... 2 for a romantic get-away, or up to 6 for family and friends:

2 bedrooms [Queen; Double; and Queen Sleep Sofa in living room], 2 baths, living room with woodstove, FREE long distance calls within US and Canada, High Speed Internet, cableTV with DVR, DVD player; dining area; fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, microwave; laundry with washer/dryer. A beautiful mountain get-away, yet close to skiing and other activities.

We are in the heart of the Green Mountains between Killington and Stratton/Bromley. We have beautiful (spectacular!!) views off to the west and northwest (great sunsets). Our cottage sits on a hill surrounded by stately maples and open pastures. It sits at 2100 feet above sea level and overlooks a lake with a 75 mile view across the mountains of Vermont and into New York State (we see the highest mountain in NY). We are one mile from Star Lake which has a beach and boat access. The cottage is surrounded by 180 acres of our land, and hundreds more acres of friends, family and the State of Vermont. We have our own trail network for hiking, snowshoeing and xc skiing, and there's lots of other hiking all around the town and local area. On our land across the road from the cottage there are four beaver ponds that string along a brook that runs into Star Lake.

Although private, our cottage is in the heart of the Vermont ski and tourist area so there are lots of restaurants, shops, and activities within 5 to 10 miles

Winter:

Okemo 6 miles; 5 other major ski areas are 30-40 minutes away (Killington, Pico, Bromley, Stratton, Magic); snowshoe, cross-country ski and sled from house; village skating; 1/2 mile to VAST snowmobile trail system.

Summer & Fall: Peaceful hide-away; nearby mountain lakes - swim, fish, boat rentals. Central to sightseeing, golf, tennis, horseback riding, hiking, biking; near historic Weston Playhouse and Weston Priory. Surrounded by Vermont forests and autumn foliage.

NO SMOKING

DOGS allowed with permission; please inquire when booking.

About Ron Unterman

My wife and I are retired and live full time in Belmont, just down the road from our rental cottage.

Come visit us in our little corner of paradise :)

Why Ron Unterman chose Okemo

Ron's family began coming to Belmont for summers in 1956 and his parents moved here full-time from New York City in 1970. As a teenager Ron worked on a local farm and the family came up to Belmont for every vacation, all year 'round. Ron and Dottie moved here full-time in 2001 and enjoy all of Vermont's seasons -- You will too :)

What makes this cottage unique

We are in the heart of the Green Mountains between Killington and Stratton/Bromley, and minutes to Okemo. We have beautiful (spectacular!!) views off to the west and northwest (great sunsets). Our cottage sits on a hill surrounded by stately maples and open pastures. It sits at 2100 feet above sea level and overlooks a lake with a 75 mile view across the mountains of Vermont and into New York State (we see the highest mountain in NY). We are one mile from Star Lake which has a beach and boat access. The cottage is very private being surrounded by 180 acres of our land, and hundreds more acres of friends, family and the State of Vermont. We have our own trail network for hiking, snowshoeing and xc skiing, and there's lots of other hiking all around the town and local area. On our land across the road from the cottage there are four beaver ponds that string along a brook that runs into Star Lake.

..... and we have a moose that visits every now and then [EMAIL us for this picture and many others].

Although private, this house is in the heart of the Vermont ski and tourist area so there are lots of restaurants, shops, and activities within 5 to 10 miles (Mt. Holly, Ludlow, Weston, etc.)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ron and Dottie--

Thanks very much for letting us enjoy your very comfortable cottage. The photos we'd seen both in the brochure and on the internet didn't do justice to either the clean and modern facilities, nor the marvelous views. We look forward to returning some day. Many thanks again, especially for the warm and thoughtful welcoming touches.

Blissful

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this very cozy cottage. It was perfect place to have reunion with our son and daughter-in-law from SC. Although the weather didn't cooperate, we had a wonderful indoors playing games and relaxing with the wood stove going while the weather outside was frightful.

Cottage had everything we needed and was very clean. Would recommend this property to anyone.

Great home base for our week of skiing at Okemo

  • 5 of 5

My family of four people and one small dog loved our week at this cozy cottage. It's a pretty little sun-lit house on a lot of beautiful land, and about a 10 minute drive to Okemo. The owners were very nice and efficient with every part of the process.

Perfect cottage for ski weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage!!! It had all the amenities of home and was perfect for a family ski weekend at Okemo! The house was very quiet, and peaceful, yet close enough to Okemo mountain. The owner was very accommodating, and helpful during our stay! We would highly recommend this cottage for the perfect ski getaway at Okemo or off-season. We can't wait to go back!! :)

Coziest of Cottages!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I loved our stay in this cozy cottage!!

The wood burning fire stove was the cherry on top of our trip. We loved coming home to a warm fire after a day on the slopes.

The location was great too, we got to explore the Homestyle Hostel for dinner one night along with the Crowley Cheese farm. The 45min drive to Killington was not bad at all. We spent one day there and then two days at Okemo.

We would totally come visit again next year!

The perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the cottage for our 2 year-old's first ski trip. Really comfortable setup in the cottage. Amazing view of the mountains from the back porch each morning with the sun coming up over the horizon. Close & easy trip to Okemo for skiing & Ludlow for eating. We spent a big chunk of one day hiking & sledding around the property, enjoying the views & the setting. Ron & Dottie were very helpful with all the necessary information upon arrival and for our stay. We can't wait to stay at the cottage again!
