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 Belmont
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.)

Long ski weekend
We have a wonderful time in VT! The house was great, we used the sleds to go sledding and it was very close to Okemo. It was a great place to meet up with family - thank you!
We most definitely enjoyed our time at the cabin, such a convenient location to Okemo mountain, a fabulous yard for our kids to sled and run around, and the owners could not be more wonderful! We will definitely be coming back!
Phenomenal Ski Vacation
Perfect ski cottage for group of up to 6 people. Ron was an awesome host, giving us great suggestions for food and activities. The “downtown” of Belmont is beautiful, quaint little town...we especially loved the New Year’s Eve fireworks over the lake and the takeout pizza from the general store. Super convenient location, 10 minutes from Okemo but away from Ludlow so we avoided the post-ski traffic into town. Would wholeheartedly recommend, just don’t take the house when we want to rent it again!
Nice place, but good use softer beds and more comfortable couches to sleep on.
The manager was in Mexico and the power went out, we did get back but not sure if the power would go back and there was no candles or lamps they just had some little pathetic flash light. So we left 2night earlier cause we were worried that the power would go out during the night. Not to mention a dead fly in our bed and a diry bath tub. It would be nice if we were at least offered one free nigh there.
In 18 years of renting this is the first and only 3-star review we have ever gotten!! As you might imagine there’s a lot of backstory here, but let me be positive and just ask that you please see the 52 reviews below, and the 67 reviews of our other VRBO property just down the road, #88648 -- 99% are 5-star.
The property has some of the most magestic views that we have ever seen in Vermont! The house was clean and basic items (paper towels, tp, towels, linens) were provided. Belmont store is just down the road and the food there is fantastic (sandwiches, burgers, wraps) - but note that they do stop taking food orders 45 minutes before they close each night. There were no issues whatsover. Already planning another stay!
Last Minute Long Weekend
We loved the cottage! The sunsets were incredible and we keep talking about finding a time to go back. The Cottage was cozy and well equipped, from the kitchen utensils to fire wood. Beds were comfy with great linens and we were grateful for the extra fluffy towels. The surrounding property offered hiking trails and privacy. Greatest of all, this is a truly pet friendly rental and a great get-a-way option for our pet as well. We were happy to realize how close we were to Okemo and will certainly be back this winter. Thank you Ron for you hospitality! ***Don't miss this gem!
