Sparkling water, glorious mountains, running brooks, a quiet lagoon, smells of hemlocks and pine and the sights of the shimmering moon upon the white birches, with fishermen boats, and sailboats and skiing boats vying for attention, along with a few ducks and occasionally a blue heron, what a delightful place to swim, or if you wish to wade, or just have your feet in the water as you read.
A quiet walk in the woods, a nature trail to follow, a star to guide your mind and heart to really see the quiet beauty, the flowers, the animal life, or just to look at the broad vistas, are just a few of the delights we can offer you if you visit this special vacation spot on Lake Groton, Vermont.
We discovered Groton State Forest and 'Pond' in 1952 through the
invitation of friends to visit them for a week. Dad had a cold; their guesthouse was a tent; it was that beautiful, crisp Vermont we all know and enjoy. Everything sparkled; the sky was so blue and the sun warmed our bodies so delightfully. Immediately we began to look for something to buy. It happened the next spring.
The family 'cottage' was built that summer. The property was cleared; the beach developed. Since that time the place has been enjoyed each spring/summer/fall by our family. The cottage has grown with the different needs of a family; it has become refined with comforts and facilities. We now drive to it rather than coming by boat! Yet, it was just as lovely as before with the finest grove of white birch trees on the lake, and the swimming area gets
nicer as the sand is firm and children and adults can go out ever so far without getting over ones head. Two large rocks stand sentinel on the beach: TWIN ROCKS.
Frankly, we could not imagine it not being used: We got to the time when we were not able to spend the periods of time we had in this wonderful site of delight where we had such good times. It would be wrong not to have it available for use. Thus, this protected bit of Vermont, quietly sitting at the lakeside with its boats, swimming, boating, canoeing, fishing, trail walking and a real place to read is offered to for a week or two, a month if you are quick - to enjoy with your friends and with your family.
We will be delighted if you also enjoy such a special place as this, for it is called Lake Groton.
The cabin is well equiped, just bring your towels, food and clothes.
Rental includes use of a private beach, aluminum dock, canoe, and a couple of rowboats. Lake Groton is a good bass fishing lake too. The cabin is heated for year round use.
