Fern hill is tucked between a quiet lake and a mixed pine/hardwood forest, with a gurgling stream running below the house. Beebe is a small, peaceful lake north of Lake Bomoseen. The original cabin was converted to a spacious chalet cottage in the 60's with porch, grill, private dock for swimming/boating and villages/trails nearby.

We had a great autumn weekend in the cottage. The place is super charming and the surrounding nature simply beautiful. It's the perfect weekend getaway to relax! The weather was not really on our side, but we had a wonderful time apple picking at Champlain Orchards, foraging for …

Hi Elena. This is in response to your private comments but it is good that others read this reply. I am sorry a couple of your friends had some reaction to the cat and perhaps I should mention it every time I have a reservation. However, my Fern Hill AIR BnB information says that I have a cat and I assume those with allergies have checked about that. You have to scroll down through the details until it asks whether there are pets in the house. Thanks for being cooperative about the heat. The weather certainly wasn't the best so do come again - though the cat has been coming for 18 years!

My vacations usually consist of travel to see family. This year family is coming to me so I had options! Barb's place did not disappoint. The pictures of the house were accurate. It had a camp house feel with all the needs checked off. If quiet and peaceful is what you are l…

Thanks, Brandon - Since you didn't always have the best lake weather, I'm glad you took time to explore the area! It is a wonderful part of Vermont - lakes and foothills - there is always something to do either on the lake or nearby. I'm pleased that you made the most of your time!

Fern Hill is absolutely lovely. If you stay in the summer, the beautiful greenery all around you is fantastic, the lake is calm and pristine, and the cabin is so comfortable and restful. It was a wonderful week, and Barbara was a fantastic host. Great communication, clean and wel…

Fern Hill is a peaceful cottage surrounded by nature-a perfect place to unwind and a great base for exploring VT. We enjoyed breakfasts and dinners surrounded by the forest and lovely gardens. A charming newt appeared on the porch one morning and curious woodpeckers inspected us …

What an enjoyable stay we had at Fern Hill. Barb welcomed us upon our arrival and showed us the ropes; she also left us a healthy breakfast for our first morning which included fresh blueberries that she had picked. Wildflower arrangements were placed throughout the cottage fr…

Thankyou, Kim for your wonderful, descriptive review. I hadn't thought about including fishing in my cottage description, but a few of our guests this summer were very keen and the lake is full of bass, pike, and panfish. I will look forward to your return soon!
