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.

Have you been waiting for a beautiful, private, lakefront property to come on the market this summer? This is a move-in ready 3-bedroom camp on Lake Salem with 100' of water frontage. This property has been substantially updated over the past few years: All new windows, drilled well, replaced drop ceiling with Sheetrock, updated wiring, increased bathroom size with new fixtures, interior and exterior paint, and new flooring throughout. Outside, the owners have removed damaged trees in front and installed a new retaining wall, with comprehensive landscaping to maximize the usable space for outdoor enjoyment, including a new fire pit. The lot consists of 2 parcels, deeded separately. There is a parcel across the road that has been turned into a nice, flat parking lot with camper hookup (water, 220v & 110v power). This parcel is large enough to add a garage or outbuilding. On the lake side, the four season camp is being sold completely furnished, minus a few personal items. Bring your swimsuit and move right in! The lakefront offers a very gradual grade and sandy bottom, perfect for swimming with young children. The sale includes 3-year-old 10'x10' aluminum raft and approximately 150' of nearly new aluminum dock.
