The SpaceThe lakefront cottage has two bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed, and the other with two twin beds and a twin bunk bed set. Cottage sleeping capacity is six persons.
The living room has a wood burning stove for cool autumn nights, and an adjacent enclosed porch. The eat-in kitchen has the basics. The single bath is equipped with a stall shower.
The cottage is decorated "camp" style, a Vermont style common to a summer home.
Wireless internet is on site.
Guest AccessThis cottage is only rented weekly in June, July, August. Shorter stays are available only in May and September, and the first week of June.
In addition to the "camp style" cottage, guests will enjoy 99' of lakefront, and a long aluminum dock extending into the lake. The dock has a sitting area with four Adirondack chairs for relaxing, and a ladder to enter the lake. It is great to sit out there with a cold or hot beverage, and watch the loons dive, boats go by, the sun set, and the moon rise.
Four kayaks, paddles and vests are available for complimentary guest use.

River Kayaking: Clyde River in neighboring towns. Getting AroundAs Seymour Lake is in rural Vermont, one will need one's own transportation. It is fun to bring bicycles, however, for roaming the countryside.
Derby is located 10 minutes to the west, and offers most needed services. Other Things to NoteSeymour Lake is the best in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, and is crystal clear. The resident loons call out to each other in the evening, and one can even kayak close to them during the day! Four kayaks, paddles, and vests are available on site. The fish jump at flies. Moonlight on the lake is simply stunning.
Whether you prefer kayaking, canoeing, motor boating, jet skiing, water skiing, or wakeboarding, Seymour Lake is spacious and uncrowded. The water is pristine. Swim laps from the dock to the raft. Moor your boat and have it available for cruising, wakeboarding, skiing, tubing, and fishing. Bass fishing is at its best right off the dock! Lake trout and pike also reside here. Try for a salmon! Or a bass.
There is a small sand beach area for young children at the eastern part of the site.
The public beach is about a mile east of the cottage.
