vacation rental description

A/C, Heat, WIFI, basic Cable TV, DVD, games, kids toys, private dock are included. Local telephone calls are included.

This cottage has 180' of waterfront mostly wooded for privacy.

The 3 downsairs bedrooms are set up as: 1 queen; 1 full, & twin bunk beds. We have renovated to a 'country' kitchen w/ dining, living area, as well as a bath w/ shower - all the first floor. The knotty pine interior provides a nice cottagey feel to unwind in. Lots of new features.

The second floor new 'lock off' is available for an additional 6 people (extra charge): 1 queen bedroom & a dorm w/ queen & 2 singles; bath & large common (10 x 20) area. This is great for reading, watching DVDs and the table is perfect for family games, puzzles etc. As with the downstairs, we have new linens & bedding. Great for 2 families to share. Note: this 'lock off' cannot not be purchased on its' own but only as an addition to the first floor. Pictures will be added in the spring.

On the first floor, the new county kitchen includes: a full size range, Kitchen Aid mixer, microwave, 'Belgian' waffle iron, elec. griddle, coffee maker, crock pot, toaster, blender, service for 16, professional s/s pots & knives. New lobster & corn pots for that really fresh picked corn are included. Bakeware and muffin pans are there for the chef.

An outside broiler, a woodsy campfire area (wood included) and picnic table will provide a rustic setting to 'get away from it all'.

The enclosed porch on the water with table for 6, rockers, end tables, etc. are there for relaxing. An outside deck is for sunning.

To enter: up 4 steps to new flooring that leads through to the porch all on one level. If you can walk up the 4 steps, you can relax all week in the rockers!

Plenty of parking, cleared section for horse shoes, volley ball etc. Gardens (feel free to pick the weeds!) for your enjoyment. Watch the blueberries & raspberries grow. Enjoy the pickings!

This waterfront property is fairly secluded in a woodsy area. Great for kids or honeymooners. Enjoy taking walks around the Westcott Shore. Pick the wildflowers. The campers are quite sociable and will welcome you with smiles.

Basic soaps, cleaning & paper products as well as linens are included.

We have a high chair & pack 'n play available for your use.

Lots of lake front activities are possible: swimming, fishing, and boating. We usually have several kayaks, a canoe & paddle boat available for your use at no charge. Bring your own motor boat & jet skis and launch in at the boat ramp at the north end. Jet skis are permissible as well as tubing. Just tie them up at the private dock.

The lake is approximately 3 miles long and 1 mile across. There are lots of camps on it, but it is very quiet except during holiday weeks. Quite tranquil.

Bird watching is a favorite pastime. We are hoping to see some loon nests established this summer.

Bring your bikes as bike touring is very popular in this part of the country. With younger kids, the old rail road beds have been converted to bike and walking trails for your enjoyment.

Plenty of day trips for those who need to be always on the go. See local activities listed.

Welcome to 'Serenity'.

traveler reviews for this lake carmi cottage rental


Review submitted: July 18, 2014   Date of arrival: July 12, 2014

We just had the best week at this lakeside "Camp". The cabin comes with so many extras it just made our stay extra nice. The lake is a gem and the huge porch is just feet away from it. It was difficult to pull ourselves out of our rocking chairs on the porch to swim and boat in the lake. But when we did, we loved it. Our daughters really loved playing outside and in the lake. A day trip to Burlington VT was especially fun, but the local area is very friendly and has what you need - including a winery at the top of the hill. The shooting stars across the lake at night were spectacular. We feel very lucky to have found this gem of a "camp" and no doubt will be sure to return. Thank you to our very lovely and hospitable hosts!
