Metcalf Pond Cottage, Near Smugglers Notch

Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Jeffersonville, Vermont
Ski in winter, swim and fish in summer, relax in a lovely rural location at any time of year. This large, attractive cottage is on a scenic Vermont lake, surrounded by some of Vermont's most beautiful countryside and interesting communities. In the summer, it's a great spot for fishing, swimming, and canoeing. The lake frontage is across a quiet country road from the cottage, and is shared with our other cottage, next door, which is a bit smaller and is available only seasonally.

Our private lake frontage is adjacent to a small public swimming area.

Interaction with guests
We don't impose ourselves on our guests--we leave people free to enjoy their vacations their own way. We will of course make suggestions if you inquire, and we are always available buy phone or email if any questions or issues come up. We do a thorough cleanup between guest visits, but we don't have a big crew of housekeepers, and we often have only a few hours for changeovers for two cottages. Therefore, we can't guarantee there will be no dust over picture frames, or perhaps fingerprints on windows left by the last vacationers. We make a point of cleaning and maintaining the way we would for our own use or for our family friends and relatives. But if, in our hurry, we miss anything, we do appreciate when guests let us know.

We enjoyed our stay at this cozy little cottage, 25min from Smuggler’s Notch. The home was well equipped with everything we could want, and even extras of a few groceries for us upon arrival. The house was warm, spotlessly cleaned and very comfy for our...More

This was my first time in vacation rental and I liked it. Living in this property I could clearly sense that money is not the only objective of the owner. He put in a lot of passion in building and maintaining the place. The place...More
