Cozy Lakefront Cabin, Crystal Clear Water - Swim, Hike, Bike
The cabin sits on a wooded hillside above Mirror Lake, the most beautiful lake in Central Vermont. Relax on the deck as you listen to the loons call across the lake and then paddle out to spy on the eagle fishing on the opposite shore. Refresh y …
Lake is almost totally screened by hemlocks. Bedroom is a musty dungeon. Frigo was loaded w detritus. Carpet, although clean, is a late '70s double-wide green w black checks. Plaster work is a slap dash scallop job. Grill was filthy and unusable. Pathetic. We almost left upon arrival, but Montpelier and the Groton State Forest gave us repite.
Peaceful, pleasant, everything the owners say it is. The pond is wonderful, and there are endless dirt roads for walking and biking. We are definitely going back!
Unfortunately, this cabin does not reflect our expectations based upon the description. First, the lake is fantastic, clear and clean and there are Loons and other wildlife to see. The cabin, however, was another story. Most of the issues I had with the cabin could be cured with some elbow grease. The guest should be made aware the much of the drive to the cabin is on dirt roads and the last bit up the driveway certainly is easier if you are in a 4 wheel drive or pick up. There is no view of the lake from the cabin as the trees and vegetation around the cabin have not been well maintained. Although it looks like at one time the grounds were well cared for with a number of flowers planted around the area. The grass had not been cut in some time and the flowers left to fend for themselves. Most of the grounds were overgrown and so infested with insects that you could not sit outside. This was not too much of a problem in that there is nothing to see outside as there are trees and vegetation overgrown all around the cabin. The best access to the lake is to drive down the driveway and over to the public access area on the lake. Easy access from there. There is no access from cabin except for a steep incline. The cabin itself was dirty; there were leaves on the floor; if you are looking to go truly rustic this is the place with no TV, lots of mold especially in the basement where the bedroom is located. Half of the basement is devoted to managing the household waste and the odor is not really very attractive. This was not a good experience for me except for the lake which was superb. If I could find another place to stay on the lake I would certainly return. The cabin, unless the owner gets whoever is cleaning and maintaining to do a better job...forgettaboutit!
This is a pleasant, clean camp with a nice deck that looks over the pond. It's a quiet spot, all of the appliances work well and the WiFi is great.
