beautiful lake view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Scamper's Inn. It is convenient to skiing and town while feeling away from it all. The cabin had everything we needed as well as many interesting things to look at and games for the kids. Plenty of space for a weekend getaway indoors and out (for the pup to run :) The owner's were gracious and responsive. Thank you!

Wonderful place and great communication from owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with our pooch at this perfect little cabin. The view from the deck was wonderful and the kayaking was perfect, loons were literally popped up 5 feet from me on a perfect morning. The grill is brand new and worked great. The owners reply almost instantly to any request. I look forward to staying in the future.

Great cabin on perfect Vermont lake

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for our family of four, we had a perfect stay. Cabin just as advertised, simple, very clean and well equipped for cooking in. On quiet gravel road, 15 minutes to supermarket in town. Private beach access to the lake, a few minute walk away. Awesome porch. No TV (yay!), good internet access. Lake Ninevah is a gem, very little development on it, no motorboats, quiet, great swimming. Kayaks with the house, right at the beach. Great area for hiking and biking. Sharon and Paul were excellent hosts. Hope to be back soon.

So peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing week vacation here! The house comes with everything you'll need except the food, of course. It is cozy and comfortable. The porch was the best hangout. The weather was rainy and cool most of the week but it didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves. Our dog Barkley loved the lake and all the walks we took exploring the area. Every day we would take a drive and just take in all the beauty of Vermont. Antiquing in Chester, shopping in Weston and Rutland, and just getting lost on country roads added to our fun. We'd love to plan another stay in the winter. Thank you Sharon and Paul for taking such good care of us!

Autumn & winter vacationers have all that Vermont has to offer close at hand. Hiking, biking, horseback riding, tennis, golf, antique, hunting, snowshoeing & skiing . Swimming, boating and fishing are all to be found on Lake Ninevah, down the block from our front door. There are about 85% of its genuine wilderness shoreline intact. It should be noted that boats with motors of more than five horsepower are not permitted on Lake Ninevah, but we do throw in 2 of our angler kayaks at no extra charge.

For hiking there are Appalachian Trail, Catamount Trail, Vermont Long Trail, Calvin Coolidge State Park & Vermont State Park. Antiguing, Sight Seeing, Walking/hiking, Wildlife Viewing-Bird Watching & Photography.

You will never be bored! Vermont might be a small State but there are so many things to do here! It's magical here!
