About Lake Bomoseen: In early days the Native Americans loved to camp near these waters. The name, Bomoseen, or 'Beautiful waters,' indicates the appreciation the natives had for one of the loveliest sheets of water on earth. Lake Bomoseen is a freshwater lake in the western part of the state of Vermont in the towns of Castleton and Hubbardton in Rutland County. It is the largest lake that lies entirely within Vermont's boundaries, with a surface area of approximately 9.6 square kilometres (2,400 acres). A portion of the lake's shoreline is contained within Bomoseen State Park. Most of the remaining area around the lake is privately owned. The lake has such recreational accommodations as a public beach, marinas, waterfront restaurants, and public boat launches, in addition to the state park. There are approximately 1,000 residences around the lake, as well as shopping, restaurants and other commercial facilities.
Neshobe Island on Lake Bomoseen played weekend escape to members of New York's elite literary set, who met weekly at Manhattan's Algonquin Hotel, and their friends from the mid 1920s to early '40s. Ethel Barrymore, Irving Berlin, Vivian Leigh, Harpo Marx, Laurence Olivier, Dorothy Parker and other celebrities frequented literary critic Alexander Woolcott's 7-acre island retreat, which was sold in February 1998 for $675,000 to a New York family that intends to live there year-round.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Great Weekend Stay With Friends
Beautiful home provided the perfect venue for good friends to reconnect. We went on a late Fall weekend, so swimming and water activities were not important. But the immediate area is great for long walks near the lake, and the house was perfect with three well apointed bedrooms. That, plus the firepit soon became an evening ritual. In short, a great time was had by all. Would highly recommend. Ps- The owner was great to deal with. Very response to any and all questions.
Private Resort Experience in Beautiful VT
We enjoyed our family vacation (8 adults and 2 small children) at Johnson's on Bomoseen in June. The house is beautifully renovated and has every amenity you could imagine. (The pictures don't adequately capture the upscale quality of the home, nor the beauty of the surroundings, and the back screened in porch overlooking a large pasture, custom shower and mammoth fire-pit are unparalleled!) The owners have designed the home with renters in mind and have spared no expense in doing so (high end grill, fully stocked kitchen with high end appliances and cookware, games, books, and videos for all ages, large high efficiency washer and dryer.) The house was in spotless condition and the many "extra little touchesâ€ť (such as personal welcome letter and custom souvenier, special soaps in the shower, fluffy towels waiting on each bed, emptied cabinets and drawers for your use) conjured a feeling of staying in your own resort.
The location is phenomenal. 10min from Castleton where you can get anything you need and 20min from Middlebury. We rarely found ourselves leaving the property because you can access miles of beautiful hiking trails just outside the door and we fished, kayaked, and canoed using their lakefront access. The croquet court was beautifully manicured and fun.
Peter was phenomenal in making sure we had everything we wanted or needed. It's worth noting that he called a week before our stay to inform us the dock was being repaired. While we didn't need it, he was prepared to expedite the repairs if we did which likely would have cost more than the week rental. The owners seem dedicated to ensuring their guests have an exceptional experience. We did, and can't wait to return!
Tip: You can't see the private shoreline from the house so you may want to bring a boat lock
tip: The master bedroom has a partitioned off walk-in closet that was ample size to put a toddler's blow-up bed (or pack-n-play) making an extra room!
What a great way to spend New Years Eve weekend - or any holiday!!!
This house is amazing. It's perfect for big groups. Our group of 9 fell in love with this home the minute we saw it. Many rooms. Beautifully decorated interior. Fireplace in living room. The largest lake in Vermont only a minute away from the house. Many hiking trails.
The owners are wonderful. We will definitely come back there.
Great house for a VT getaway
We stayed at this lovely house in last days of 2011. We were a group of friends (9 young adults 28-35) getting together from different states (NY, NJ) and we had an amazing time. In one word we loved the house. Itâ€™s beautiful, relaxing and clean. The house has all the amenities you need. It has a fully equipped kitchen. The property is in a unique location with gorgeous views, beautiful grounds, privacy, and a feeling of closeness to nature. The perfect getaway, for a family or group. House is nice and spacious. Great place to unwind - would return.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of our property. We heard that you had used one of the the big rooms for group yoga, what a great idea! We're so glad you enjoyed the property and house. We hope to see you all again soon.
A perect getaway.
I have recently spend there a lovely weekend with my husband and few friends of ours. We loved everything about the house and its owners Peter and Jeniffer are great. The house is amazing, very specious and well maintained with everything you need! The kitchen was fully equipped so you can cooked anything you like, there is also a store nearby to buy groceries. All the bedrooms were specious, renovated and beautiful at the same time. The entire house has plenty of windows with amazing views. There is an unique living room with a rustic like wooden wall and an antique stove to warm yourself up during the cold nights. The house has really good vibes. By the way, the deck would be great for Bbqs. We will come back for sure, this time in summer.

Great home for weekend getaway
We have stayed in this beautiful house with group of friends for a weekend. The House is freshly renovated but yet has a great climate. Rooms are clean and very comfortable. Bathroom are brand new and very convenient, The house has a big kitchen and huge dinning room with amazing view on surrounding forest. There is a lake near by and miles of hiking trails for our use. This is a great vacation house for everybody, we loved our stay.
Easter weekend getaway
Our stay at Johnson's On Bomoseen was fantastic! The house was way bigger than we expected, completely renovated, spotless and tastefully decorated. With 3+ bedrooms, a generous living area, kitchen, enormous dining room and a custom made fireplace, the house felt roomy and very comfortable. We were able to comfortably fit everyone in and we were a group of 9 people.
The location was the best part - literally at the top of topnotch - was beyond breathtaking - this is truly a hidden treasure! The house rests on 22.6 acre farm, with stunning views of surrounding hills, and near a beautiful lake. The area is great for hiking, taking walks, cross country skiing, etc.
We were there for the Easter weekend enjoyed ourselves stay immensely. The only downside was the fact that our vacation was only 3 days short. We would definitely come back and have no hesitation in recommending this house to anyone.
