A cabin in Lake Hortonia, Vermont.
Enjoy a week-long stay at Stillwater cabin on the shores of Lake Hortonia, Vermont. Stillwater is the summer home of Athens residents Aaron and Cathy Wright and their family. The house is fully furnished and equipped with all necessary kitchen supplies and appliances. There are two bedrooms, one which sleeps four (queen size bed plus trundle) and one with a double-bed. Additional sleeping space for two can be found in the cozy loft overlooking the main living area. There is a bathroom with a standup shower, a recently refurbished woodburning stove, a gas grill, and wireless access. Enjoy paddling in the cabin’s canoe, rent a pontoon for the day, or bring your own kayaks and/or speedboat.
Lake Hortonia is conveniently located about twenty miles south of the beautiful college town of Middlebury and the cabin is an easy day trip to anywhere in Vermont. We are a short drive to the Lake Champlain ferry, which allows access to the Fort Ticonderoga, Lake George and the Adirondacks Mountains of New York. Nearest airports are Burlington, Vermont and Albany, New York, and the drive from Athens is
around 13 hours. Stillwater is a three-season cabin, but the best time to go is usually late summer or early fall.
