Romantic Retreat: 10 acres, Hot Tub, Movie Theater

Sleeps5
Bedrooms 2
Bathrooms1
Half Baths1
Space 850 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights

Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, sleeps 4-5

Located in the heart of the Green Mountains on ten acres. Mountain views and remote feel, but only 20 minutes from Warren/Waitsfield area or 10 minutes to Rochester. Ski or snowshoe out the back door or cozy up and watch movies on home theater with over 200 movies. New, with all the modern amenities, but done in classic cabin style. Enjoy walking/sledding on site or hiking the nearby Long Trail, then a relaxing hot tub under the stars. 15 mins to Middlebury Snow Bowl, 25 mins to Sugarbush and Mad River Glen or 45 to Killington. Great swimming, kayaking, etc. Perfect any season!

Size limitations: The cabin is 850 sq ft. so not designed for large groups. It is one large space downstairs and two separate bedrooms above. It has a much larger feel than it's size indicates however, due to a two story loft above. There is also a generously sized mud room/entry with a heated floor to dry out ski boots and stow gear. It is therefore best suited for couples or small families who are looking for a well designed and appointed quality cabin. Anyone looking for a traditional Vermont experience will certainly enjoy the areas offerings and the warmth and intimacy provided in the cabin.

4wd Car recommendation: It is recommended that you have a 4wd car or truck in the winter.

About Jeff

Jeff is a Boston architect/contractor and resident of Concord for 20 years. He designed and restored the cabin on his own, working weekends over the course of three years. Initially, his wife was very reluctant, but once done, she is now the cabin's biggest fan. As it was designed and built for his family, Jeff has left no detail undone.

Jeff purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Jeff chose Granville

This area of Vermont is close enough to Boston (less than 3 hours), yet far enough to be in the heart of pristine Vermont. Jeff has been coming to this area since the mid 1970's and dreamed of having a retreat here for 35 years. Skiing is only 15-30 minutes away, and several romantic villages are nearby, giving endless options to explore and enjoy. Being on 10 acres and in Granville, it is also very private and peaceful. Often we just spend the weekend there, relaxing and basking in the cabin's great light and warmth.

What makes this cabin unique

Although the existing cabin was in sad repair, Jeff saw the potential, the views, and had the vision, tools and skills to make it happen. It is now our favorite place to be and we have established many great relationships there. It is a very active and engaging community, which we love being a part of and welcome others to share in, too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jeff.



We can't thank you enough for providing us with lodging that is so comfortable and with such nice amenities. After playing tourist during our stay last summer, we stuck a bit closer to home this time. Highlights were finding the swimming holes at Warren Falls and across from Newtons, Sunset Hike and local farmer's markets. Everything we ventured out to do was great fun! Also, it was wonderful to have our dog, Ginger along. Thinking we are hearty Southerners, who have endured a terrifically hot summer thus far, we did not believe we would need the A/C in Vermont, but I must confess that we broke down and used it one evening. We were so thankful for it!



We really appreciate everything!

Living room has a gas stove which resembles a wood stove, but is much safer and cleaner to operate.

Fabulous cabin in excellent location to tour/hike/relax

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was everything and more than we expected. Well stocked for cooking/bbq. Outdoor hot-tub was brilliant. Not overlooked by other properties and very peaceful.

Movie cinema was terrific with large choice of films. Impressed by speed of wi-fi....much better than at home!!!

Jeff was very responsive to any questions pre-visit and provided excellent information on cabin/area.

If we were visiting the area again we would definitely try to book.

Peaceful perfect little gem

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stay for week during “spring vacation” from school. However it was more like a winter break, snow, freezing rain, coldy windy weather the whole duration of our stay. We found many fun and relaxing activities to do inspire of the cold weather. Each and everyday we went on hikes around the wonderful property with our two dogs. We also loved the perfect set of the movie theater each evening, the hot tube numberous times a day lol. Or just relaxing on the window bed with a book or coloring/drawing.

We hope to return to this great little cabin in the woods very soon! Thank you, Jeff & family for sharing your cabin with us

Lovely, cozy and relaxing family time

  • 5 of 5

My partner and our two kids and dog loved staying here for 5 nights. Everything is well organized and explained. Beds are comfortable and the whole place is well done. We enjoyed the hot tub and grill after hiking nearby and on some days we just hiked right on the property. Movie screen is fantastic with surround sound. The kids really enjoyed that part. It snowed one day and it made everything look more magical. Wish we brought our sled! 4 wheel drive would have helped on the steep driveway. :) Jeff was always available via phone and text to answer questions. Highly recommend this place.

The best “get away from it all” winter vacation for my small family.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time back at this cozy cabin. We love the location to Sugarbush and the nearby villages, but we mostly love to stay on the property and hike and explore with our dog, cook comfort food in the well stocked kitchen and enjoy the warmth of the cabin and hot tub during the day and the entertainment center at night. Everything is well thought out and fully labeled and explained, so a new renter won’t have to wonder what to do in any situation that might arise or where to go to explore this beautiful area. I hope to return every year for our winter “fix”. Thank you for sharing your lovely hideaway.

Cozy cabin for some quality family time

  • 5 of 5

VERY nice getaway. Great property to explore on back country skis or snowshoes. Well equipped throughout the house. Would definitly rent again in the winter. Probably great fun in the spring-summer-fall too.

Map

Car: necessary

Located in central Vermont, 1/2 mile off Rt. 100, alongside the Green Mountains. Just a half hour off the interstate and convenient to skiing, hiking, kayaking, relaxing and many other outdoor activities. Enjoy great nearby skiing or stay on the property and have a fun weekend tubing, tubbing and/or snowshoeing through the woods and open fields. In the summer, there are the Farmers Markets in Waitsfield and Rochester, amazing swimming holes, tubing on the rivers, as well as the peace and serenity that comes with being located in the pristine, undeveloped White River Valley.

Other Activities: x-country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding right on the property.

Golf: Sugarbush has a beautiful 18 hole course, while White River Golf Club offers 9 holes at a tremendous value only 15 minutes away.

Ski: Sugarbush and Mad River Glen, two of Vermonts best areas are only 25 minutes away, and Middlebury Snow Bowl, Vermonts best value, is only 15 minutes away.
