About Property Manager/Owner

I am a retired librarian of 27+ years, married with 7 grandchildren. Coles Pond is where I go to relax, read, cook, swim, canoe and hike. I used to go blueberry-ing on Coles Pond Rd. since age 8! My sister has lived in this area over 55 years, so we sometimes do day trips together, have sweet summer picnics enjoying the vegetables from her garden, enjoying day-lily garden tours nearby, lunch on the water of a nearby lake, go to a Farmers Market and shopping or a museum in St. Johnsbury. Morning or evening canoe paddles are best when the water is calm and like glass. Enjoying the loons and duck families swimming by is precious.

Property Manager/Owner purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Northeast Kingdom

The clean air and calm, clear waters with nothing but the wind softly whistling in the spruces is my idea of heaven on earth -- and it's mine! When it's not calm, hunker down with a blanket, look up into the sky to see the northern constellations on a clear night. Getting back to nature, especially in the northeast kingdom of Vermont, is my favorite place to be, and has been since childhood every summer!

What makes this cabin unique

A sweet, quiet place for rest and relaxation, yet plenty to do all around you.

The property is located in a beautiful place. Sunsets are breathtaking.It is a small issue with the shopping - the nearest one ( with more or less significant variety and quality) is about 30 min away. Other then this the place is beautiful.
