Lake Willoughby

Willoughby Lake is the deepest lake in the area, making for lots of different stories, some true and some maybe not. Either way it is surrounded with mysteries. Picturesque Willoughby Gap supports two mountains (Mt. Pisgah and Mt. Hor) for hiking or ice climbing and each offers spectacular views from the top. Scuba divers love to explore the depths of Willoughby Lake, swimmers enjoy the cleanliness, boaters enjoy the expanse and fishermen enjoy the record size fish. There are three beaches for entertainment; one nice sandy beach is located at the north end of the lake which is the largest and most popular and the other two are at the south end. One is a family beach across the road from White Caps Campground (http://www.whitecapscampground.com/) and the other, for those so inclined, is a nudist beach.  For rentals and restaurant try the Willoughvale Inn and Cottages (www.willoughvale.com).

This sweet 2-bedroom, 3 season cottage is an affordable get-a-way with low taxes, and so close to everything while keeping a private feeling.

It is a classic cottage style with a wood burning fireplace, wrapped in cedar shakes and topped with a metal roof. Think how easy it will be to drift off into a peaceful sleep as you listen to a soft summer rain patterning on the roof. Or if you prefer, stay up late and watch the fireflies light up the front yard, look up to count the stars, have another s'more while relaxing at the campfire. If you're not familiar, Willoughby Lake was glacier formed and it is the deepest lake entirely contained in Vermont at 320 ft. It is held in place by 2 mountains that cup it in their majestic hands. This cottage is an affordable way to be so close to a totally breathtaking lake and all it and the area have to offer.
