About the property

Log Cabin - 4 bedroom/3 bath/sleeps up to 12/game room/deck with mountain views

~ NEWLY INSTALLED ~ Enjoy the 5 zone AC during the hot summer months!

Beautiful 20 year old 4 bedroom log cabin perched on a mountain side in complete privacy with spectacular views of the surrounding hillside and valley below. The cabin's fully glassed southern exposure affords these grand views from the comfort of the living room while snuggled next to the glass doored wood stove. With approximately 45 private acres of property, you can hike, camp, sled down and snowshoe up the mountain to your heart's delight. Bring your ATVs, quads, and snowmobiles to ride up and enjoy the spectacular views from the top! Or if you would rather relax, this is also your perfect yoga and meditation retreat where you can truly get away from it all. Look for the woodpeckers during the day and listen for the owls in the evening hours.

The cabin offers activities year round - spring, summer, fall, and winter. The local Lake St. Catherine is just a few minutes away and offers all the water sports. Skiing and snow boarding at Killington, Pico, Magic, Bromley, Stratton and Okemo with great dining and shopping in Manchester and Rutland are just a short drive away. Vermont's unique antique shops are located nearby and golf is just down the road. Enjoy the fall foliage in autumn. Sight seeing of Vermont's classic covered bridges makes for a very scenic drive year round. There are no nude beaches in the area but who needs them when you could bare all, inside and out, in this totally secluded cabin.

With two separate living areas, each with its own flat screen TV, 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, loft area, and a deck complete with a propane Weber grill and magnificent views, the cabin provides a great environment for retreats, family reunions and events while also allowing for an individual's privacy and relaxation. Recent renovation of the lower level now provides a spacious game room with pool table, ping pong, dart boards, many board games, and an entertainment center complete with 60' surround sound HD-TV and Stereo System. The cabin provides Wi-Fi access so you can stay completely connected...or not at all.

The most recent upgrades include a 3rd full bath in the lower level bedroom and new wall to wall carpeting in the upper level master bedroom. Also, a new patio set on the deck has been added so you may enjoy the beautiful outdoor scenery with all of your family and friends.

The cabin is the perfect stop if you're looking for peace and serenity surrounded by nature's beauty. The spectacular views may be enjoyed from all the windows in the main living area which provides ample seating and is open to the kitchen and dining area. The loft area just above provides a great place to sit and enjoy the view while soaking up the sun. The master suite, with its own private bath, is handsome and roomy. There are two additional bedrooms on the main level - one with a queen bed and the other with three twin beds (one trundle and one regular twin). The lower level walkout offers the second living area with a game room to play and have fun. Completely surrounded by trees, this is the nature lover's paradise!

While the cabin is spacious for groups, it is warm and cozy for individuals looking for a peaceful retreat as well as couples looking for a romantic, private getaway. Become inspired to write, paint, or just escape to discover yourself away from traffic, schedules, and the hustle and bustle of every day life. Come, relax and enjoy yourself in this classic piece of Vermont.

Amenities: The cabin is equipped with all the amenities you need. There is a complete galley type kitchen with a full sized gas stove/oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, stainless steel cookware and nonstick skillets, complete kitchenware utensils (stainless steel, bamboo, etc.), dishes, wine and drinking glasses, coffee cups, etc. The kitchen comes with both a drip coffeemaker and a Keurig machine. A coffee grinder and natural unbleached coffee filters are provided. The cabin is complete with linens and towels for your use.

For those days when the weather is not optimum or on those long winter nights, enjoy the wide assortment of board games, pool/ping pong table, and darts while listening to music on the stereo system. Or you can choose to watch movies from the collection of DVDs at the cabin on the 60' HD-TV with surround sound. And for when the weather turns nicer, there are even a couple pairs of snowshoes and a few sleds to you to use during the winter months. Just bring your personal belongings and have a great time.

Activities: With approximately 45 private acres of property you can hike, camp, sled and snowshoe on the mountain behind the cabin without having to drive anywhere. It's steep terrain, so be prepared for whatever workout your heart desires. There many different hiking and biking trails in the area for everyone's activity level from beginner to advanced. The Battenkill River is just a short drive. Boating and other water activities just 5 minutes away at Lake St. Catherine. Just a 45 minute - 1 hour drive for some of Vermont's best skiing and snow boarding at Killington, Pico, Okemo, Stratton, Bromley, and Magic Mountain. Snowshoeing and cross country skiing are all nearby as well. The cabin's handbook provides suggestions on other fun things to do as well as great local spots to eat at. Manchester is a beautiful Vermont town with great dining, antiquing, and an outlet shopping center located about 22 miles to the south. Rutland is about 25 miles to the north with more dining and shopping opportunities.

Please note that during the winter months when snow/ice is present, a 4x4 vehicle with snow tires and/or chains might be required to access the cabin.

Come to Vermont and discover yourself!

Amazing, middle-of-nowhere retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property. Truly in the middle of nowhere (even the road leading up to the property will mean you'll need more than just a town car). You can't see another building, let alone another person. Lovely. Plus a great kitchen if you like cooking.

Wonderful Private & Spacious get away home!

  • 5 of 5

2nd year staying in this house and we got a preview of how this house will be in the spring or fall. Sitting outside next to the fire-pit and hearing the sound of the nearby river was priceless. The owner Maria is great in answering questions and concerns before getting there. This house is very peaceful (Isolated) and equipped to make your stay a delightful getaway! Looking forward to staying here next year.

Beautiful house, lots of room for a big group.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our group. We easily fit 12 people for the weekend. The layout of the house was very comfortable and allowed all the couples to have their own space. I loved the large windows in the kitchen/family room. It's a beautiful house.

Awsome property but hard to access

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the house from 10/7 - 10/12/2016, the house is awesome and we have a wonderful time... Only complaint was that the trails that are behind the house are definately for ppl that are in shape, unfortunately I had a bad knee and couldn't get up to the trail's... We brought our Quad (which isn't top of the line, kinda a cheap one) and it stalled going up the hill from the driveway to get to trails so basically we didn't let the kids even try... If you have any type of struggle doing an incline you will not be able to access this property but I have to say that it is absolutely beautiful... I was so looking forward to the 46 acres but due to a knee injury and other factors I could not... The house is everything that it say's it is and more we actually went out and bought memory foam toppers for our beds because what they had was so comfortable as well as pillows... I don't remember the name of the place but we left the menu in the folder for a very good take out place that you can call ahead and order and just pick up... Not as secluded as it appears (you can hear cars/people from the road below) but definately a beautiful large house that has many accomodations

Enjoyable and very pleasant place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Moosehorn. The cabin was totally awesome. It was as advertised, very adequately supplied and comfortable. The surrounding area was gorgeous and the golfing was excellent as well. The only complaint that we had was a mice problem. We lost about $25.00 worth of breads, snacks and cheese to these pesky rodents. We did trap one the day before we left, but the damage was already done. Otherwise, it was a very enjoyable vacation and would recommend it to friends, contingent upon remedying the mice problem.

Owner's Response: Thank you and I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! I'm sorry you didn't mention the mice during your stay so I could have had the pest control service over immediately to take care of it. By being private and secluded, the cabin is truly surrounded by nature.

House was great, we enjoyed the view and fire pit!

  • 4 of 5

House had plenty of rooms places to hang out. The pool table was in great shape and we played nine ball several evenings.

Beautiful remote area of Vermont near Lake St. Catherine just 15 minutes north of Dorset. Approximately 45 acres of private property surround this typical Vermont chalet type 4 bedroom log cabin. Hiking and snowshoeing right out of your backdoor! Boating, swimming, skiing, sailing and golfing are all just 5 minutes away at Lake St. Catherine. Skiing and snowboarding at Bromley, Okemo, Pico, Kilington, Magic, and Stratton only a short drive away with cross country skiing in the area as well. Dining and antiquing in beautiful Manchester and shopping at Manchester's famous outlet center is nearby. Movies, theaters, museums and many other cultural activities and attractions are within short driving distances.

Golf: A very nice course is locate at Lake St. Catherine just a few minutes away. Nestled in the mountains this course provides a very serene challenging setting for a great round of golf, novice to pro, and it is rarely crowded.
