About the property

Vermont Cabin Rental: Rustic Luxury 1 BR + Loft Sleeps 5

Goldilocks cabin is a cozy retreat for a romantic getaway, and ideal for small families as well. The cabin is on 4 wooded acres, but just 1 mile from Stowe village, eight miles to Mt. Mansfield and skiing, and just a few miles to the Pinnacle, one of the most spectacular hikes in Vermont.

Goldilocks cabin is well appointed with Black Forest and French antiques, hand loomed rugs, and antler chandeliers--the perfect combination of rustic and luxury. The piping hot wood stove and the chiming cuckoo clock make this cabin a cozy retreat after a day of hiking or skiing. The large master bedroom has an antique four poster bed, complete with a sumptuous mattress, and a sitting alcove with a sleeper sofa. The sleeping loft (a favorite of older children) is accessed by a ladder and has a full size bed. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room as well. The cabin has two decks and a gas barbecue, and a fire pit.. Goldilocks is pet-friendly. Well behaved, approved pets are always welcome.

Guests often mention our attention to detail as one of the many reasons this cabin exceeded their expectations. Goldilocks cabin is just right.

About Jill

I am an interior designer who realized I could use my particular talents to create the unique type of vacation rental that I myself am always seeking. In this commoditized world of professionally managed properties it has become difficult to find the personalized and the refreshing in a vacation rental. Goldilocks Cabin is the antidote to this predictability. I am married to a tug boat captain, and we live on Nantucket island with our cat, Charlie, and three chickens.

Jill purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Jill chose Stowe Hollow

Goldilocks Cabin was originally the ski cabin of the principal designer at the interior design firm where I was then employed. Together we had great fun decorating the cabin on buying trips to New York, the Paris Flea Market, and at our favorite Vermont antique stores. When my boss decided to buy a bigger house, I jumped at the chance to make Goldilocks Cabin my own.

Goldilocks got it right!

  • 4 of 5

Cute as a button and comfortable as you can get....very cozy. Best nap I've had in years. Great location for doing absolutely nothing! or, close enough to 3 different ski resorts to ski your life away!!

If you've never rented a property before you really should try this one. Great place, great owner, great...Go ahead. Take the 'plunge' and rent this one now before it is all booked up.

Review of the Goldilocks Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I spent a long weekend at the Goldilocks cabin arriving on a Saturday and departing on Tuesday this past May 2018.

We found the cabin on line. You never know from on line what the place will really be like. But it looked so interesting inside and was reasonably priced.

You drive up and it does not look like much from the outside. But then you walk in and it was "magical". So well decorated, cozy and warm. Great kitchen and family room area. Comfortable furniture. Large bathroom and shower with plenty of counter space.

But the best part is this incredibly comfortable and uniquely decorated bedroom/ living area. We had the best sleeps . The bed was co comfy.

The cabin also comes with a loft bedroom that looked great but we did not use.

The location is terrific. Close to town, wonderful restaurants and activities. We did not cook once but went out to eat. FYI: I recommend the Abortrek zip line as a must do.

The cabin was immaculate,has fast internet, washer dryer and TV's. All the comforts of home.

Finally, the owner Jill was very easy to work with and helpful.

My girlfriend is asking and we will be planning an autumn stay.

Such a special cabin !

  • 5 of 5

We look forward to our week at Goldilocks every February and fall more in love with this little gem of a cabin every year. Jill’s attention to detail always guarantees that we have everything we could ever need for an impeccably clean and super cozy & comforting stay. We miss our home away from home already & can’t wait to get back soon !

Stowe has wonderful hiking trails, both easy and challenging. There are miles and miles on bike paths for biking and Rollerblading. In the summer there are open air concerts, golfing, fly fishing, hot air balloon rides. There are many beautiful lakes nearby for hiking, canoeing or fishing.Numrrous swimming holes, Stowe is known for its great restaurants, many to choose from just minutes away. There are two spas in Stowe, the Stowe Flake, and Top Notch—both wonderful. There's lots of antiquing in the surrounding areas--and prices in Vermont are quite reasonable. For a day trip choose from Burlington, Montpelier or Montreal.

Stowe is known as the Aspen of the North, and the mountain is recently been improved with new runs, lifts, and world class shopping. There are hundreds of miles of trails for cross country skiing or snow shoeing, and of course ice skating as well.
