A Nearly Perfect Lake Cabin
My family of four (and our dog) absolutely loved our time at Rose's cabin in Woodford! First of all, the cabin was exactly as described and there were no surprises. It was also very easy to book and Rose was responsive to questions I had before we left for vacation. When we arrived, the cabin was very clean and everything was ready for us. There was a canoe, kayaks, paddles, life preservers, and a dock out on the lake. The grass was mowed while we were there and the fire pit was ready for our kids to cook Smores (even if the weather didn't agree). The house itself was unbelievably cozy and cute. It's not luxurious but we didn't want that. We wanted a true lake cabin and this delivered. The three bedrooms were perfect and the master had a great view of the lake to wake up to every morning. The kids loved the bunk beds. The couch in the living room was big enough for all of us and we ate all our meals at the table. The flat screen was bigger than I thought and I was thrilled to see a Roku with preexisting Netflix and Amazon Prime. There was one in the master bedroom as well. And we especially loved the enclosed back porch with a gorgeous view of the lake, along with games for our kids to play. The kitchen is small and the stove even smaller, but my wife and I marveled at how well it cooked (especially how fast it boiled water). We had all the silverware, cups, plates, etc we needed and we were also able to cook on the grill on the deck with no problem. The only small cons were being right on Route 9 (a major road with a lot of trucks) but we knew that going in and the kids and the dog were never in harm's way. Also, you have to bring your own linens and towels (which was also made clear to us ahead of time), and there is no washer/dryer available on-site. All in all, it's a truly great cabin and a perfect Vermont spot to spend a week on the lake. If you want to travel, Bennington is close as is Wilmington (eat at Dot's Restaurant). There are smallmouth bass and pickerel in the lake, and young kids will LOVE swimming and playing on the dock. I'd recommend this to everyone and we will definitely be back.
