on Lake Willoughby in Westmore, VT


Book Now
























































Enjoy the swish of the waters in the 17-foot ODay Sailor.  Willoughby is a beautiful lake to explore with the mountain views and pristine waters, and canoeing in the evening with the fragrances coming down off the mountains is a special experience.  For the avid sailor, the ODay is popular as a racing craft and for family excursions. The motorboat has a 9.9  HP electric start Mercury, and the back up boat [last year the old Honda failed] has a 15 HP electric start Mercury.

The Cottage


Our unique combination of a secluded cottage and a private beach makes ours a rare rental opportunity on Lake Willoughby. Such are the opinions of our guests who have been uniformly enthusiastic and often liken our place to a gem of a discovery (see Reviews).




The cottage faces the sunset and the beach is greeted by the sunrise and tenting is possible on the beach.  It is a short boat ride of 5 minutes to the beach with spectacular views on the way.  Canoeing takes the same time as going around by car.



The Beach


Where families spend most of their time...When shadows fall across the beach, returning to the cottage is like getting another day.  Picnic tables, fire pit, beach chairs and umbrellas, and tenting on the beach and awakening to the sunrise and fresh air for a swim or early morning sailing...well...unforgettable...
