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 Central Vermont / Sugarbush / Mad River Valley

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!

Fantastic

Very beautiful and well taken care of. Loved watching movies on the projector screen and going snowshoeing through the woods. Would definitely return.

Peaceful perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying over the weekend at the cabin. I loved the privacy of the property yet it felt very safe and comfortable like being at home. The owner Jeff was very responsive with any questions and the cabin was set up perfectly for VT winter with toasty radiant floors and a gas stove! The instructions were right where you needed and everything was marked clearly, making it very easy to follow.

The cabin was clean and welcoming. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. The projection TV would have been wonderful for watching movies and the hot tub was clean and looked inviting with steam rising in the snow (I had to do work unfortunately and didn't get to enjoy those amenities, but fast wifi made working easy, too).

I would definitely rent it again. It's a lovely place.

Great Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Although Vermont was experiencing a January thaw which limited our winter activities, we still had a great stay at the cabin. It was so cozy with the gas stove and the perfect size for two of us. We were able to use the snowshoes provided to explore the woods and trails behind the house, and using the hot tub every night was so relaxing. We had a little bit of snow overnight once and the driveway was plowed out before we even thought about leaving the house. Amazing! We had everything we needed in the kitchen plus more to cook meals when we didn't feel like leaving, and the projection tv was awesome! Because most of the xc ski centers had little snow and the outdoor skating rink was closed, we spent most days driving up to Stowe. The drive was very easy and the location of the cabin is quite accessible to anywhere you need/want to go. The miles/drive times seemed long to this city-dweller but the scenery and lack of traffic more than made up for that. All in all we had a fantastic stay and would definitely return to see what other seasons of the year have to offer!

The cabin and surrounding property was very nice and secluded. We enjoyed hiking with our dog!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I are from the city. We have used this cabin twice now, for us and our dog, and we absolutely love it. Our dog doesn't much like other people or dogs, so being able to let him run free in the fields is a dream come true for all of us. We love just hanging around each night in the warm house from the snow. We cook each meal and spend time gazing out the window of the front porch. We enjoy coming in the winter, assuming most people are indoors. We explore the National Forests and love coming back to a cozy cabin. The only two things I could possibly think of for improvement is a recycle bin (which most likely you have, we just didn't see it in the basement), as well as the very nice plow service you have only came once, yet it snowed a few days. But we still had no problem getting up the driveway with the help of the sand. We love your place and will be back again and again.

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.

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