Lake Dunmore is in the township of Salisbury, located in central Vermont, on U.S. Route 7, the major north-south highway along the western slope of the Green Mountain chain. State Routes 53 and 73 provide paved access to the lake off Route 7. High Winds is located on the shore of Dunmore’s North Cove, looking eastward up the slopes of majestic Mt. Moosalamoo. Nestled at the foot of the mountain is Camp Keewaydin, one of the oldest, most respected boys camps in the nation. It sister camp, Songadeewin, is located on the opposite shore of the North Cove. While the camps are shrouded from view by the green forest, it is not uncommon to hear the occasional shouts of joy from boys and girls at play.
HighWinds has the privilege of offering one hundred feet of private sandy beach with dock space for boats, a floating platform for swimming and diving, and the quiet of a “wake-free” boating zone. The lake bottom from the beach deepens very gradually and makes getting in the water fun and easy. Guests are no more than thirty seconds from the beach and just minutes from a soft-serve ice cream or morning paper. Major shopping is only a fifteen minute drive to the town of Middlebury, home to highly regarded Middlebury College, which offers many cultural opportunities to the public all year round. The town also offers many highly touted restaurants and eateries, breweries, wineries, orchards, museums, libraries, and theaters. Explore the many antique shops and historical landmarks of the Champlain Valley on day trips. Burlington International Airport is within an hour of Lake Dunmore.
