We are in the heart of the Green Mountains between Killington and Stratton/Bromley. We have beautiful (spectacular!!) views off to the west and northwest (great sunsets). Our cottage sits on a hill surrounded by stately maples and open pastures. It sits at 2100 feet above sea level and overlooks a lake with a 75 mile view across the mountains of Vermont and into New York State (we see the highest mountain in NY). We are one mile from Star Lake which has a beach and boat access. The cottage is very private being surrounded by 180 acres of our land, and hundreds more acres of friends, family and the State of Vermont. We have our own trail network for hiking, snowshoeing and xc skiing, and there's lots of other hiking all around the town and local area. On our land across the road from the cottage there are four beaver ponds that string along a brook that runs into Star Lake.

..... and we have a moose that visits every now and then

Although private, this house is in the heart of the Vermont ski and tourist area so there are lots of restaurants, shops, and activities within 5 to 10 miles (Mt. Holly, Ludlow, Weston, etc.)

This cottage is in a peaceful, secluded location about 15 minutes from Okemo Mt and 40 mins from Killington. The set-up (two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and pull-out coach) was perfect to sleep 5 adults. Ron was warm, welcoming and helpful. The kitchen is well-equiped. The only downside is only AT&T and Verizon (somewhat) users get service, but there is wifi at the cabin. Overall, a great stay!

A cozy home in a beautiful area. The cottage is immaculate, with everything needed for a getaway. Beautiful views and utterly peaceful setting. Ron also provides clear, comprehensive info about the home and area. We'll be back!

Very nice stay. Ron was amazingly responsive and provided us with squash from his harvesting!

The cottage itself was immaculate and comfortable -- lots of clean linens, a well stocked kitchen and bathrooms and appliances that all worked perfectly. And outside the cottage was heavenly -- the big sky, meadows and trails made the place a wonderful treat for our family. Ron and Dottie were very friendly. Ron was a wonderful host who went out of his way to offer his help and make us feel comfortable and welcome while also allowing us the privacy and quiet we hoped to find in Vermont. Dottie came by once to water the beautiful flowers around the perimeter of the cottage. We had native Vermonter guests come for dinner and they were amazed by the view from the cottage. There's abundant wildlife-- deer, chipmunks and all kinds of beautiful birds. We spent much of our time taking it all in from the lawn chairs on the hill behind the cottage and from the deck where we ate all of our meals.

Ron was fantastically supportive before and during our stay. He provided us with any information we wanted and was a warm and welcoming host. The house was in a great location with wonderful views of the surrounding hills and mountains. Whilst we were unlucky with the weather - you can't control that, right? - the house and host more than made up for it.

I spent the week-end with my husband and another couple and we had wonderful time! The house is very cosy, pretty big (2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms), very clean, well-equiped and only ~10min far from Okemo ski resort :) We may come back next year when there will be more snow (hopefully!)

The cabin was great. Worked out perfectly for our group. 5 minutes to Okemo Mnt. and 40 mins to Killington. Great place to stay to explore both mountains! The cabin has a nice view and is well accommodated. Everything is labeled and indicated for ease of use. I would absolutely recommend this cabin to anyone wanted to do a ski weekend.

Response from Ron:
Hi Simon, Great idea. I also need to post a note that with the SmartTV and high speed internet connection our guests can access their personal Netflix, HBO GO, Amazon, Hulu, etc. accounts. Come visit again... and remember it's beautiful here year 'round :) Best, Ron

Ron's family began coming to Belmont for summers in 1956 and his parents moved here full-time from New York City in 1970. As a teenager Ron worked on a local farm and the family came up to Belmont for every vacation, all year 'round. Ron and Dottie moved here full-time in 2001 and enjoy all of Vermont's seasons -- You will too.
Come visit us in our little corner of paradise :)
