About This Location

Nestled in the serene town of Guilford, Vermont, Weatherhead Hollow Pond beckons with its pristine waters and untouched natural beauty. This picturesque 33-acre pond offers a tranquil escape from the bustle of everyday life, where the soothing sounds of nature and the clean, rural surroundings create an idyllic setting.

One of the defining features of Weatherhead Hollow Pond is its remote and unspoiled shoreline. Unlike many other bodies of water, you won't find houses or commercial developments crowding the pond's edge. This unblemished environment is a haven for those seeking a pure and unadulterated connection with nature.

At the southern end of the pond, a state fish and wildlife boat launch provides convenient access for water enthusiasts. Whether you're an avid boater, paddleboarder, canoeist, or kayaker, this launch is the gateway to your aquatic adventures on Weatherhead Hollow Pond. As you set out from the launch, take a moment to soak in the breathtaking scenery — the pond's sparkling waters mirroring the backdrop of distant mountains.

One of the standout features of Weatherhead Hollow Pond is the restriction on motorized boats. The 5 mph limit ensures that the pond remains a peaceful oasis where the gentle hum of paddlecraft and chirping of birds is the prevailing soundtrack. This limitation not only preserves the tranquility of the area but also encourages a sense of solitude. More often than not, you'll find yourself navigating the pond's waters with the entire expanse to call your own.

For fishing enthusiasts, Weatherhead Hollow Pond offers an excellent opportunity to cast your line and reel in some memorable catches. The pond is home to Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch, and various panfish, making it a favorite spot for anglers. Many choose to cast from the shore, while others prefer the vantage point of a boat or paddlecraft.

When it comes to parking, Weatherhead Hollow Pond has you covered. A well-maintained dirt parking lot awaits at the southern end of the lake, conveniently located near the launch ramp. Best of all, parking is free, removing any obstacles to your peaceful day of exploration on the water.

In the heart of rural Vermont, Weatherhead Hollow Pond invites you to reconnect with nature and relish the simple joys of a pristine, unspoiled environment. Whether you're gliding across its tranquil surface, trying your luck at fishing, or simply savoring the solitude, this hidden gem offers a tranquil escape where the worries of the world fade away, leaving only the beauty of the natural world.
