A double bed but there's a couch that folds to a twin in the living room in case somebody snores! Welcome to the sticks! I say that in the best way. The lake breeze keeps the mosquitos at bay and there aren't any black flies to torture you! A boat or two goes by on the lake. The train whistle, also, across the lake... otherwise QUIET. 5 miles to the Bridport Country Store and the Town Green, where nothing much happens. Sometimes there's a Fireman's Cookout. I mean, CALM! QUIET! A photographer's paradise. Bald eagles abound and you'll hear crickets and owls and foxes, the wind. the waves, the train. This cottage is a small, funky, book filled, wildly romantic, cozy and colorful one bedroom (half opening to living room) with gas fireplace, full kitchen, (the microwave and some dishes are in the bedroom hutch!). covered deck...Fire pit right in front, with Adirondack chairs if you don't feel like going down to the beach. Lots of firewood. Little look out and stairs down to the beach. Stairs are sturdy but might be too much for people with mobility issues. It's funky and fantastic - with a canoe for two and kayaks. x (bring please organic soap/shampoo products please, to protect the lake, so close!) No smoking, please. x Why do I say funky? The tub/shower is behind a Thai screen in the living room/kitchen area. The toilet is in a closet next to the kitchen! If you need LOTS of privacy, this isn't for you! People who love this place and come as a couple have no secrets when they leave. VIEW VIDEO- that sums it up... ! Narrow part of Lake Champlain, so you can canoe to New York State and some beautiful inlets. Great bass fishing, right off the shore. On a quiet 'dead end' lakefront dirt road, with only a few cottages, so just a random car goes by every so often. Great retreat to finish your novel or start one. Doggies LOVE it. (if your doggy is non shedding, like my Shih Tzu, let me know, and you will not be charged the entire dog fee which is for the additional cleaning. My cleaning people whine. It's a bit of a drive to the sticks. Plenty of squirrels to chase and no cars. Long walks up the road and nearby trails to gorgeous views of the Adirondacks. Google Snake Mountain. You can sit and watch the lake and sunset from the porch or walk down a short winding path to the Look Out. Fires on the beach are the best,-plenty of beautiful smooth slate rocks to build your firepit. When I come back to visit there are often beautiful sculptures make of rocks. Every night there is a spectacular sunset, varied, intense, do I dare say life changing. I ask that guests bring towels and double bed sheets as there is no laundry. If you're flying in, can make arrangements. Yes, there is wireless, who can do without it? but NO TV. Huge selection of books you meant to read last year. Great birdwatching! Eagles, huge woodpeckers, hummingbirds. This area of the Northeast has the darkest night skies -- so the stargazing is spectacular! Grill on the beach at dusk, or the deck, or take the canoe out and watch the stars. Wonderful hiking trails nearby and waterfalls up in the mountains. This is a great part of Vermont... ! It's 20 minutes, a beautiful easy drive to the gorgeous college town of Middlebury, and a great starting point for various Vermont locations not to mention Revolutionary Forts across the bridge, and the infamous Star Trek museum in Ticonderoga?! You are literally 10 feet from the lake, so when a window is opened, dust appears, a spider web in the corner. It's country, so get in a country mood! If you really want to get away from it all but have the option of a nice restaurant 14 miles away, (Fire and Ice, The Black Sheep) this is your place. My cottage is down the hill, behind a fence. When I'm visiting, I'm close enough to hear you scream if you are attacked by a chipmunk, otherwise, you won't hear a peep from me. Quiet writer curmudgeon. But I love to be around in case you have a question or need some tips on where to go, what to do. Canoe, kayak, read, drink martini's or tea, grill out, take long walks or hikes, tour the many Vermont breweries, go over the bridge to the New York State Revolutionary forts or Star Trek museum. The Trail Around Middlebury is gorgeous. Most guests sit by the fire and gaze at the extraordinary world class view. Catch up on reading and sleep. It's a new comfy mattress! This kind of quiet isn't for everybody, but for those who are rattled by the ways of the world and really need a retreat, here it is! I try to keep fresh herbs in pots on your deck, so keep an eye out. ! Oh, and there's a walk in closet to stash your extras!
Located in Bridport, this cottage is in the city center and on the beach. Lake Champlain and Champlain Bridge Marina are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those looking for area attractions can visit Gunnison Lakeshore Orchards and Bulwagga Books & Gallery. Enjoy the area's slopes with skiing, and don't miss out on the ice skating.
