In 1922, a few members of the Bennington Section leased and furnished an old camp along the Long Trail, just north of the old Grout Job Lumber Camp. GMC members could use the camp if they picked up the key in Bennington. It was dubbed Camp Webster due its proximity to the Daniel Webster Monument, erected by the Stratton Mountain Club in 1915, on the Arlington Wardsboro Road. The monument marks the location where the famed orator, Daniel Webster, addressed a crowd of 15,000 at a Whig Convention in 1840.

In 1965, Kent Brook was dammed to create Kent Pond. It was then stocked with the trout and bass that still flourish today. And it was opened for fishing. It was at this time, that the farm’s owner, Merle Schoenfeld (who had bought the 75 acres remaining of the original farm from a man called George Orech in 1959) decided to turn his venerable New England farmhouse into a small lodge. He called it Mountain Meadows Lodge and it was soon doing so well that he had begun work on converting what remained of the original New England Barn into what is now the main lodge.
Located on Arlington-Wardsboro Road, this was once the headquarters of a lumbering concern but for the last few years the place has been kept open for boarding by Mrs. Rober Lawler. One is always welcome and may come get something to eat when hungry.
