We stayed at Mountain Lake Cottages for a four day vacation in June of 2011. Located in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, pretty near the Canadian border, June is a little early in the season, so the cabins were not all full! The water was icy-cold, so we didn't go in swimming. But the views of the lake are marvelous - and it's quite a large body of water, espcially for little Vermont. We watched the fishermen on the lake and enjoyed dipping our toes in the water. The cabin was small and sparely decorated, but scrupulously clean and comfortable; and equipped with basic cooking utensils, pots, pans and dishes, so that we were able to make all our meals. Each cabin also has a great little front porch with wooden rocking chairs, ideal for watching the sunset over the lake.
A side note -- just up the road from the cabins, there's a FABULOUS snack bar, with burgers, fries, ice cream, etc. Very simple, but the food is terrific. On a future visit, I think we'll buy a bit less food to cook in the cabin, and plan to eat at the snack bar more often. The guilty pleasures of summertime...
Lake Willoughby is a very peaceful place to visit and the people were very friendly.
