Owner info

Year Purchased: 1962

About the owner: I am a retired postmaster and native of the area. My father had purchased this 130 acre gem when I was very young. The pond was totally undeveloped, no roads, no power. Our family used it for hunting and fishing. After I graduated from college and got married, we built our first road to the shore and set up a rv camper near the shore for our growing family to enjoy. We brought our horses over to ride through the wooded trails. Where our horse paddock was, I built our first cottage, Loon Lodge, from native pine. , Eventually, two more cottages were built, with individual roads going to each. We now enjoy sharing this very special place with others.

Why the Owner Chose Ryegate, VT, USA:
This property is best described as "A piece of Heaven”. The wooded mountains slope down to meet the pond. There is absolutely no road noise. All that can be heard is an occasional call of the loon, the hoot of an owl, or perhaps the howl of a coyote at night.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Almost any cottage you look to rent on other ponds are highly developed with wall to wall camps. My cottages are unique in that they are all owned be me, tastefully placed out of sight of each other. All you see from your porch is the natural beauty of Symes Pond and the surrounding woodland. The area is teaming with wildlife, not people. The pond is actually made of two ponds; Upper Symes and Lower Symes with a channel in between. There are islands to explore. This is a kayaker's paradise. The swimming is also nice with a float to swim out to. The loons are always putting on a show that you can watch from your front porch!
