About the property

Pristine Forest Setting: Loft Sleeps 6, 2 Full Baths, Well-Equipped Kitchen

Conveniently located just off route 100 between Stowe, Sugarbush, and Mad River Glen in a pristine forest setting, the Lodge consists of two separate units, the Loft and the Terraces. This is a perfect place for a family reunion! Five miles from the Heady Topper brewery and Ben & Jerry’s factory, and three miles from Amtrak and Interstate 89, the Lodge is easy to get to and easy to visit. The Lodge is on a well-maintained gravel road, with no other houses in sight.

Take a look at the full site for Crossett Hill Lodge where you'll find more images and a description of the second unit, the Terraces. You can rent both units at a discount.

About Kathi Lengel

We're a recently retired couple. We've both been in education since the early 70's. Jim worked mostly in higher ed (Boston University and Hunter College) while Kathi focused on K-12 as a teacher and principal. Our current work involves consulting with schools and universities around the world as they seek to better use modern technologies in meaningful ways.

We split our time between wintering at Crossett Hill Lodge in Duxbury, Vermont and Cedar Cove in Portsmouth, RI in the summer. Each property has two units, available for rentals.

We sail out of Bristol, RI throughout the summer on our 38' yawl (charters available!).

Kathi Lengel purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Kathi Lengel chose Vermont

We lived in Williamstown, Vermont from 1972-1988. When we moved down country, we kept our rental property there. Then, our daughter and her husband bought a house in Duxbury so we did too. Dividing our time between mountains and beach is just about perfect for us!

When we got it, the Lodge needed a complete renovation. We've spent the last three years building bathrooms, tearing down and refinishing thousands of feet of pine boards. They were very dark brown when we moved in. Each board was carefully removed, planed, varnished (with VT whey varnish) and put back up. The house has new windows, insulation, new kitchens, and so on.

We both like doing renovations so it's been a great project for us. And, we love being a half mile from our daughter and her young family!

What makes this lodge unique

The lodge is out in the country, close to town, with skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking out the back door.

Combine this unit with the Terraces and you have a perfect spot for a family reunion!

Opening our two units to renters has meant a steady stream of very interesting people since we started renting in the summer of 2015.

Our stay

  • 5 of 5

Crossett Hill Lodge was perfect for our weekend. My Nephew was getting married at a nearby lodge, and My sister (his mother) and I rented this Lodge, we had lots of family there and we were allowed by the Lengel's to host the rehearsal dinner, which turned out great the weather was good so we were able to mingle outside and they had everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare. The lodge was very comfortable and it felt like home for us. Would recommend to anyone.

January 2017 visit

  • 5 of 5

The house is located well. It is close to the interstate and close to Waterbury. It is convenient to Stowe, Sugarbush, Mad River Glen, or Bolton Valley. It is clean and comfortable. There is an abundance of good firewood and a robust wood stove. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped. The owners are very gracious and were responsive when we needed help or had questions. Verizon wireless reception was not great but the texts worked and the owners texted right back. I would definitely come back to this property.

Wonderful weekend...even without snow!,

  • 5 of 5

We spent a relaxing VT weekend at this cozy lodge. Perfect balance of "down home" VT charm and modern conveniences. We took in the shops of Montpelier and Waterbury in lieu of skiing. Loved it!
