Willoughby Lake Cottage with Private Sandy Beach,
Spectacular Mountain Views
This is a 112 year-old restored Victorian cottage with beautiful private beach. A Motorboat, 17-foot sailboat and canoe are included.
The rental is $1,800/weeki and 2 small families with a maximum of 8 individuals may be accomodated. Additional adult guests are $100/week or negotiable. Lake Willoughby is Vermont's finest lake with pristine, crystal clear water. Our unique combination of a secluded cottage with the finest private beach in the State makes ours a rare rental with exceptional privacy. The white sandy beach is 750 feet long. Canoe silently across with spectacular mountain views (12 min around by car, private parking).The cottage faces the sunset; the beach greets the sunrise, and camping on the beach is a spectacular experience. After shadows fall across the beach, returning to the cottage is like getting a whole new day. Children love sunning, fishing or diving off the dock or the underwater bolder in front of the sitting platform (with steps into the water). After a Bar-B-Q, breakfast trout are best caught during sunset. The cottage is completely outfitted: library, porch, picnic table, complete kitchen and pantry with fresh basics, stereo, fishing equipment, and a shore side sitting niche to enjoy crashing waves, a sunset with nature's finest views and the call of the loons.
Peaceful and Natural : We are very particular about the presentation and cleanliness of our property. The cottage is private and secluded as is the private beach. Both command beautiful views, and we are the only family cottage with property on both sides of the lake with the beach directly across from the cottage 2/3's mile.
Additional Pictures Available: Additional pictures are available for those who are considering a specific week. These we will send by e-mail upon request. Technology is Great! Also, we provide a 5-page cottage information document (by e-mail attachment) which describes details about the cottage, directions, and recreational resources in the area. We really enjoy compliments from previous visitors (some who have volunteered to be available for their commentary). The pictures are as complete as possible. Rainy weather is not under our control, but the cottage is spacious, and we see spectacular views of rain storms coming down the lake, from a secure and warm interior, and those sights are quite an experience. A trip to the beach across the lake by canoe and around by car, both arrive about the same time, on a beautiful sunny day make all the hard work you do during the rest of the year well worth it! And you can take a tour around the lake in the motor boat...or swish through the Willoughby waters in the sailboat. Life can be good and will be when we so choose!!!
Sailing: A 17' sailboat is available and adds a special dimension to the lake. It is moored just off of our beach and is available for those who have proven sailing experience. Or, Sam Kent will show you how. The craft is an O-Day Sailor, popular for racing, with a 20' mainsail and jib. It easily accommodates 4 adults or your entire family.
Fishing: Willoughby has produced some lunker lake trout in the 20 to 40 lb range. They are there! We provide trolling equipment with lead core line and terminal tackle (which you must replace if lost) [with motor boat] and other fishing equipment (fly, casting, and spinning). Nice rainbows may be caught at sunset in front of the cottage with bobber and worm. Sam Kent will show you how and where to catch the lake trout by jigging down about 60 feet.
