Metcalf Pond, Near Smugglers Notch
Our private lake frontage is adjacent to a small public swimming area. The water is shallow for a fairly long distance from shore, so it is a safe swimming area for young children under adult supervision. It's also a good spot for launching a small boat. We provide a canoe, rowboat, kayak, and paddle boat for use by you and by those in our neighboring cottage. If you've got a small boat of your own, feel free to bring it along.
In the winter, the cottage is a great home base for the East's best skiing, with huge savings in exchange for a driving a short distance to the slopes. The cottage is only 13 miles from Smugglers Notch, widely regarded as one of the finest ski areas anywhere, both for skiing enthusiasts and for families. This is a way to get outstanding lodging for your ski trip for a fraction of what you would pay right at the resort. Or, if you prefer, try ice fishing or skating on the lake.
Extras available at this cottage include:
Two-person outdoor hot tub, in back of the house, for pleasant relaxation any time of year.
Use of a canoe, rowboat, kayak, and canoe. (All boats shared with guests in our other cottage, Fletcher # 3.)
For winter guests, discount adult ski passes at Smuggs.
At any time of the year, the cottage is an ideal place for a relaxing retreat, a peaceful spot with space to sleep as many as six-to-eight people.
Smugglers Notch, in addition to its reputation for skiing, is becoming a four-season resort area. Horseback riding is available at a nearby stable. You can tour the local winery or corn maze in nearby Cambridge. Many of Vermont's other well-known attractions, ranging from the Ben & Jerry's factory in Waterbury to the cultural attractions of the Burlington area are within an hour's drive. Montreal is close enough to make it a convenient day-trip.
Generally, we prefer to rent the cottage on a weekly basis — Saturday afternoon until the next Saturday morning — especially during peak summer months. However, at other times of year, including the ski season, we often make it available for shorter periods, such as three-day weekends, or for "weeks" that begin midweek.
