A Lakeside Retreat with a Green Mountain backdrop
If you think an inn by a lake is only fun in the summer, you need to visit the WilloughVale Inn and Cottages on gorgeous lake Willoughby. It’s true, from your cozy lakeside or lakeview cottage or adorable inn room, you’ll love planning summer, spring and fall activities by the lake Robert Frost called a “fair, pretty sheet of water.” You might use the inn’s kayaks and canoes, go scuba-diving or just read a book in a comfy lounge chair. But winter activities on the lake are fun, too, including cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Nearby, enjoy dog-sledding, snowmobiling, downhill skiing, skating – even ice-climbing. Or just chill out in your room by the fireplace – or in a double Jacuzzi!
