About the property

Beautifully Renovated Classic VT Lake View Cottage With Shared Sandy Beach

Centrally located in the heart of Vermont's beautiful Northeast Kingdom, The Honeymoon Cottage is the ideal place for family vacations, honeymoons, hiking/kayaking/biking adventures, fishing trips and more!

The Honeymoon Cottage was built in 1930 as part of a resort along the lines of the Patrick Swayze Dirty Dancing movie, in which people from away would rent a cottage with access to a mess hall, roller rink, tennis courts and of course the beach.

Vestiges of that remain with the kind of privacy, views and open space that you would expect. There are only a handful of cottages left and ours is the very last one with the very best view at the end of a quiet dirt road. Named The Honeymoon Cottage because of it's doll house look, diminutive size and complete privacy, this is a classic Vermont seasonal cottage completely renovated in 2016. It has been outfitted with modern conveniences without losing the country charm that relaxes you the moment you step in the door.

The Honeymoon Cottage has one bedroom with a queen size bed and a small bunk room with built in bunk beds and french doors leading to a brand new deck with panoramic views overlooking the lake and mountains. There is one bath with a walk in shower. It can sleep 2-3 adults and 1-2 children comfortably.

Sitting on top of a knoll which overlooks the lake to the famous Willoughby Gap and mountains, this comfy cottage rests at the end of a short dead-end dirt road so it received ZERO through traffic. With all the amenities needed to make it the perfect seasonal getaway for family and friends, why stay anywhere else in Vermont!

The Honeymoon Cottage has a cozy dining table with umbrella on the deck with great morning views perfect for enjoying a quick breakfast before you head down to the sandy beach to the lake for swimming, fishing or boating. We keep our canoe at the beach and you are welcome to use it -- or bring your own boat as the public fishing access is only a mile away with free parking. There's also ample seating around the firepit - the perfect place for a sunset bonfire.

The fishing access with boat launch is just minutes down the road and there are two large public beaches in addition to our small private one. There are several small country stores where you can stock up on fishing supplies, beach gear or just stop for a pizza, soft serve ice cream or deli sandwich and a bar and restaurant nearby. You do not have to drive into town!
