Paddling/small, quiet lakes?

We'll be in the NE Kingdom area, staying near Westmore, for a week later this month. We love to paddle, and prefer quiet lakes where we can float, watch for birds and wildlife, and generally be zen. Do you have any recommendations, and do you think it's worth bringing our own kayaks (we would be dragging them through Canada from Michigan), or should we arrange for spot rentals from local outfitters? Thanks, Elizabeth

Although I haven't been up to Northeastern VT. for a few years, there aren't a plethora of outfitters up thar and I can't recommend any who have kayak rentals. Lugging your own boats might be inconvenient but would give you the mobility to traipse around as you pleased without worrying about where to find/return boats.

Lake Willoughby is a must-see!

Agree that Lake Willoughby is superb. It's quite popular & busy w/ motorboat though, so be prepared for that. The cliffs at the southern end are quite spectacular.

This place in Lyndon has been there for years. Not too far from Westmore.
