Relax in the solitude of our charming, private, custom built, all-wood guest cottage with one bedroom and sleeper sofa There is a full kitchen and hand-tiled bath as well as a small living area with an entertainment center. Lovely views and perennial gardens enhance an already peaceful landscape. Swimming pond on property. Snowshoe, Nordic and hiking trails are nearby, as are winding back country roads for walking and mountain biking. Acupuncture, sound healing and bodywork teatments available by appointment. Located in Moretown, this cottage is just 10 miles South of Montpelier's great restaurants and stores. Alpine skiing is 30 minutes to Sugarbush in the Mad River Valley and 45 minutes to Stowe and Mount Mansfield. Come and enjoy the rural Vermont experience! No pets please.
My boyfriend and I just stayed in this cottage for a long weekend away from it all. The cottage is beautiful-- you can tell that a lot of time and caring was put into the beautiful craftsmanship throughout. Pamela and Kevin were very welcoming when we arrived and let us come and go as we pleased. The location is very rural and we were glad we had our Explorer -- 4 wheel drive is needed. On the way to the cottage you drive through 3 covered bridges-- we thought this was pretty cool. This cottage is a short drive to the attractions in Montpelier, Waterbury, Stowe, Mad River Glen and Sugarbush. We would love to come back in the summer or fall to go hiking and biking. This cottage was well worth our money and the drive!
The cabin was just as shown in the images. The property is very neat and is accessible to you during your stay as the owners are very kind and accommodating. We went in the winter on a weekend that was cold but had little snow. The cabin was warm and comfortable during the entire stay there. Great for a couple but could hold more in the loft bed and the futon. I would not suggest more than 4 or 5 people though and do not expect privacy as it is basically one connected space. We had a great relaxing and romantic trip for our anniversary and the cabin really brought it together. We are not party people or very into bars and night life so we found ourselves going out in the morning and coming back shortly after supper and enjoying the heat, TV, WiFi, and comfort of the cabin for our evenings. Would definitely be a fun place to stay in the summer to enjoy the mountains, hiking, and pond that are all available nearby.
Not only was the setting great, but the owners are incredible. The night we arrived we pulled in and unloaded my truck and planned on getting some supplies from the local store down the street. When we went to leave, my truck would not start. Not only did they contact a mechanic to look at my truck in the morning (ended up just being jostled connections to my starter), but they even let us BORROW THEIR CAR to go to the store to get supplies in case my truck would need work done. I do not know any other people that would let you borrow their car after knowing you for 30 minutes, but they did and it truly saved the day and really stunned my girlfriend and I with how kind they were.
Would suggest this for a romantic stay with your significant other, or for a small family trip for sure. In the winter it is close to some skiing locations and interesting events (like Mardi Gras in Burlington) and in summer it is near hiking and other outdoor activities as well. Its about 20 minutes form Montpelier, 50 from Burlington, and 40 minutes form Stowe. It also only took us 3 hours to get to Kittery, Maine. Ben and Jerry's is a must see as well. Enjoy the cabin and Vermont on your next trip.
Cozy Cottage. Perfect for a ski weekend for a family of four (2 boys, ages 5 and 9). Clean and comfortable, with everything you need. Great hosts, incredibly responsive and friendly. Short trek to Mad River Glen and Sugarbush, as well as amenities in Waterbury, Waitsfield and Warren. We'll be back!
Loved the cosy gas fireplace and artistic details of cabin. Owners checked on us to make sure we had what we needed and respected our privacy. The cabin is close to Montpelier and Northfield. A beautiful brook with cascading falls runs along the road to the cabin.
Every last detail of this stay was perfect for us. From the ease of communication, to our hosts' kindness, the amazing surrounding environment with trickling creek heard from the cabin, to the gorgeous woodwork and thoughtful building of the cabin. It had a charm that we have come to love about Vermont. It was clean, nature-filled, quiet, serene, with beautifully landscaped and kept grounds and home. It felt like home to us. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook yummy meals with local farm food! Our daughter loved the apple trees and the freedom to roam the hills, we enjoyed watching stars from the comfy seats outside, and the ease of getting around to some fun waterholes and canoe spots. The general store has GREAT food and baked goods!! So good!! Thank you! Wonderful stay and we will be back!
We stayed 3 nights and absolutely loved the property. It was a wonderful vacation and if ever back in Vermont would certainly look to book again. Cathy Goycoolea
