Lake Bomoseen: Vermont Lakes & Waterways
Once a thriving resort community in the 1920’s and 30’s, Lake Bomoseen was a refuge to such stars as the Marx Brothers, Lawrence Olivier, Vivian Leigh, and Alexander Wolcott. Trains brought tourists from New York City to Whitehall, Fair Haven, and Poultney, where they could board a trolley to Lake Bomoseen. Many resorts lined the edge of the lake and a steamer ship carried visitors around the lake.
Vermont’s largest lake wholly within the state’s borders, at nine miles in length, Lake Bomoseen continues to be a favorite spot for all. A haven for anglers, boaters, and swimmers, the lake has something for everyone. While many of the resorts that stood are gone, many vacation rentals are still available.
Two marinas offer boat rentals of everything from fishing boats to jet skis. A nine hole golf course, driving range, and miniature golf course will keep the avid golfer happy.
The Bomoseen State Park offers campsites right on the water. Many day trips from the area are accessible: Lake George, Lake Champlain, and Lake St. Catherine are all within a comfortable driving distance.
To reach the lake, take Route 30 North from Castleton Corners. Or, take Route 4A West from Castleton Corners to Creek Road to access the Western side of the lake.
