Lake Salem

Also known as: Big Salem and Little Salem

 

Salem consists of two lakes (Big Salem and Little Salem) separated by a short channel with a bridge that crosses over the channel. Little Salem is good for small boats and fishing and has it's own boat launch site, while Big Salem provides enough space for larger boats with an accordingly larger boat launch site. There are a couple of nice places to stay, if you so desire. On the south end of Big Salem, next to the boat launches is a popular campground called Char-Bo Campground (Char-bo.com) and set back off RT 105 is the oldest running, successful B & B in the Northeast Kingdom called the Lake Salem Inn (Lakesaleminn.com). On the north end of Big Salem is Coutts Moriaty Camp (SiskinCoutts.org) offering both day and/or residence camp options for kids. The VAST trail runs down the entire length and supports lots of ice fisherman. There are many camps/ houses that line the edge of the lake.

This cozy 3-bedroom, 4-season cottage on Lake Salem has been the setting for many memories for the current owners, and now it's your turn. Just imagine, after a day of trolling the lake for fish, you're on the deck grilling up the day's catch as family members and friends battle it out with a no holds barred game of cornhole. Later, with nearly full bellies, everyone gathers around the fire pit to roast some marshmallows as the sun makes its slow descent over the lake. Inside, the combined kitchen, dining and living area allows views of the lake from every spot. The U-shaped kitchen has full-sized appliances and a butcher block topped peninsula with seating for four. On chilly evenings, the Vermont Castings glass-front propane stove glows with warmth that spreads through the 864 square feet of living space. Two of the bedrooms are furnished with full-size beds while the third has two sets of bunkbeds. There's also a full bath. Down the steps from the 24x10' deck is a nice level lawn area that leads to the 50' of lake frontage. In the winter, the 788-acre lake offers good ice fishing as well as access to VAST trails. This home has been lovingly maintained and is being sold with many of the furnishings. Tahoe Pontoon boat available for $13,000. If you've been dreaming of a waterfront property, this one is worth a look.
