Lakeview Cabins overlooks the sparkling clean, clear waters of Crystal Lake, nestled in the heart of the Northeast Kingdom. Mountainous Cliffs are often home to many bird species such as the Peregrine Falcons, Eagles and Osprey.
Our Private Grounds offer a delightful Sandy beach for relaxing in the sun, playful wading, or swimming out to our raft! For guests that would like to bring their own boat, we have a boat launch and dock space for your convenience. We also offer a peddle boat, canoe and row boat for our guests to use at their leisure. You will find an expansive lawn, picnic areas, lawn furniture and games found throughout the grounds with stunning views and perennial gardens. Unwind by the lake and listen to the alluring sound of the loons in our recently added gazebo.
Crystal Lake is approximately three miles long and about one mile in width. The over 100 foot deep cold waters is the habitat for rainbow trout, small-mouth bass, yellow perch, and lake trout. It is a glacial lake beautifully situated among picturesque mountain sides.

Lakeview Cabins is a four generational operated business. The cabins were originally built in the 1950's, by "Pep" and Leah Rollins. Their son Bill and his wife Jane hosted another generation of tourists until 1999, Their daughter Linda and her family who resides in the main house, now hosts another generation of tourists.
One of the most enduring qualities Lakeview cabins has for me is, as our business is multi-generational so are some of our guests. I am still able to see some of the people who have vacationed here over the years, and I grew up with, along with their next generation families.
How wonderful is that!
