Built in 1860, the Notch House was the first vacation home on Lake Willoughby and is ideally perched on the south end hillside, centered between Mount Pisgah and Mount Hor, the two mountains that form the dramatic Willoughby Gap. In addition to the majestic house, the property includes a one-bedroom guest cottage and a private path that leads down to the beautiful, south end coves and beaches. Lake Willoughby is considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the world and its spectacualar south end coves have the best beaches, sand, and views on the lake - a paradise for swimmers, sunbathers, kayakers, hikers, boaters, and fisherman.
Available for weekly rentals, the Notch House is a perfect venue for family reunions and vacations. There is a large chef's kitchen, a bar, and a dining room that can comfortably seat 16 - 20 guests. The sitting rooms in both the main house and the cottage feature field stone fireplaces. The property, surrounded by over 7,000 acres of Willoughby State Forest, is completely private. Short paths from the house lead to the trail heads for both the Mount Hor and Mount Pisgah hiking trails as well as the base of the CC road for mountain biking and cross-country skiing.
