Overview

About the property

Relax at the lake

Our home is located on a dead end road right off Route 30. This means there are no cars speeding by, no traffic noise only the summer sounds you came for. The camp has 3 bedrooms; queen size bed downstairs, upstairs has 2 bedrooms, one with twin beds and a queen and the second with a queen. The home has been recently updated. The kitchen is new with high end appliances, countertops and cabinets. Cook dinner on the deck overlooking the lake, lay in the hammock, play horseshoes, or borrow our kayaks and explore the lake. You can swim off the dock, the bottom is firm and shallow for children or deeper off the end of the dock. Fishing is great. We have caught bass, trout, panfish, pike--depending on the season. Kids have the most fun using facemasks and netting the sunnies!

About Jackie Parker

We are a family of four who purchased property on Lake St. Catherine after spending years on Lake George. Why? Because of the lake's beauty, because it is a fantastic place to spend time with family and friends. We have never before rented out our property, but we have moved and don't spend as much time enjoying Vermont as we used to. After thinking about selling it, but fearing we could not find a prettier place on the lake should we want to live here again, we have decided to try renting it and give others the opportunity to experience Lake St. Catherine.

Jackie Parker purchased this cottage in 2006

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

The heating system had an issue so it was loud but I'm sure that was not none to owner. I'd highly recommend this for a summer stay. Was there in the middle of winter so we didn't get the true experience of the property. It was nice to be so close to the lake and the view was wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and for letting me know about the loud furnace. We just had it serviced but perhaps there is a problem in the making due to the extreme cold weather earlier in the season. Please come back and enjoy Stonehenge Lane in warmer weather. Jackie

Amazing location. Clean, convenient, peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

We had an adult getaway and this place was perfect. Great setting right on the water. Updated cottage with 3 comfortable bedrooms. General store down the road was fantastic also. Great communication with owner leading up to our stay. Thank you Jackie! We hope to be back.

Very Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We needed a short getaway from the daily grind and we found here on Lake St. Catherine. We have two small children (2 years and 6 months) so staying away from home is always an adventure for sleep. This was perfect. We got sleep! That's most important. The home is very comfortable. Bring a chromecast if you want to watch some TV/Streaming media at night. There aren't many channels (that's not why we were there, but the Baseball playoffs were on and I wasn't missing those games.) The surrounding town is very nice. We didn't cook so I can't tell you much about the kitchen. There is a grill on the deck and looked like there were plenty of plates and cutlery. I'd recommend Tots Diner for breakfast, that was great. We stayed for three nights and came back relaxed. Thank you for the comfortable stay!

Owner's Response: First, thank you for the review. It helps us improve and prospective renters make a decision. Second, so glad you were able to rest, relax and reset. That is exactly why we go to the lake! We would love to have you stay again. Seth and Jackie

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage on a beautiful lake In a quiet location on well kept property.

We couldn't ask for much more at this lovely cottage, indoors or out. Fishing was good, water was warm, yes, in the last week of Sept. Lovely yard, deck, docks and patio. Kayaking was fun and relaxing too! Wildlife abundant, including a Bald Eagle experience. Indoors was clean and beds comfy. Aesthetically pleasing and well done. Furnishings not overdone, yet comfy. I would only add an FYI that you need to bring a cooler if you want ice, no freezer(very adequate refrigerator) and no microwave oven(great convection stove/oven). But we did just fine without them. Just a lovely experience altogether. And a lovely town and region to sight see! Thank you Parker family!

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property over the long October weekend. There is plenty of comfortable sleeping space for a family. Beds are very comfortable. Views of the lake from the deck are breathtaking. Lake access is great- we enjoyed kayaking around in the boats provided. Cozy living space. Beautiful and efficient kitchen. Overall the interior appears to have been recently redone and it is perfect for a lakeside cottage. Very well cared-for property. Good location too in terms of access to town and other VT and NY destinations. We would definitely stay here again.

It feels that when you are relaxing at the quiet end of the lake that you are a world away from area activities. In reality, these activities are just outside your door. Feel like a quick hike after breakfast? Drive or walk up Endless Brook Road to the Louis Dean trails, you will be glad you did! After lunch walk, bike or drive the half mile to Whale Back Vineyard for a taste of local wine. Don't forget you can also drive to Granville, NY to Hicks Orchard for award winning local apple wines and ciders or check out the Pember Museum and Slate Valley Museum--both a pleasant surprise. The museums are fun for adults and children, but looking for something out of the way, fun and beautiful scenery to boot? Check out the trail rides at Pond Hill Ranch in Castleton, Vt. On Saturdays stay for the rodeo. Golf at Lake St. Catherine Country Club or walk to dinner there. In the winter you can slide at the golf course, skate on the lake or bring your snowmobiles and ride the VAST trails. Not to mention, you are a half hour to hour drive from different ski areas: Killington, Pico, Okemo, Bromley, Stratton, or Magic in Vermont and West Mtn in Queensbury, NY. In the summertime Bromley and Pico also have adventure parks suited to everyone. You are also about an hour drive from the Great Escape in Lake George, NY. Of course, there are outlets galore in Manchester, VT and then there are day trips to Fort Ticonderoga, Ben and Jerry's, Shelburne Museum and Burlington. You will have to come back year after year to do it all. My favorite day? One at the lake, a quiet back road drive at dusk and a lakeside fire in the evening. Perfect. Your turn to choose yours.
