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.
