About Cubby Momsen

My husband, Frits and I built this cottage from an old barn that we rescued. This was our home while building our new house just completed in October 2013. We lived here with our two dogs very comfortably for 21/2 years and now want to share it with our guests. Frits is a builder who can manage any building or repair job and I am an active real estate broker. Prior to building this new house we lived in Stowe for 35 years. We are available to our guests around the clock should you need anything.

Cubby Momsen purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Cubby Momsen chose Stowe Area

Whether you are a couple who love nature and the outdoors or just like to curl up next to the wood stove with a good book, you will enjoy this beautiful setting and charming cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Natural ledges, huge rock formations and gorgeous southerly views attracted us to this 18 acre parcel of land surrounded by larger conserved acreage. Building here was a challenge but well worth the effort. We love the convenience of being on the south side of Stowe for easy access to Burlington and the airport yet tucked away in our own private place to enjoy the birds and animals that reside here with us.

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Badger Cottage. The location is great for hiking and exploring the area. If you are a fan of craft beer the location is great....right down the road from The Alchemist and relatively short drive to Burlington, Warren, and Hill Farmstead.

The cottage is great and has everything you need. Cubby and Frits are very welcoming. Highly recommend if you are planning a stay in the area.

Great private cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here with our 5 year old daughter. It had everything you needed. The washer and dryer were great. It was real quiet which we appreciate. Cubby and Fritz were helpful in suggesting places to go as well. We loved Stowe and Waterbury and hope to be back!

Great cottage, awesome location, wonderful owners on site - top notch all-around

  • 5 of 5

Badger Cottage is really nice, extremely clean, well-appointed, truly dog-friendly, and the gracious owners live right on site so any needs or questions are addressed immediately and carefully. The private wooded trail and pond access was also terrific. The location is convenient yet quiet and secluded at the end of a private road. This was an amazing, relaxing summer weekend getaway to Vermont - highly recommended!

A beautiful week at Badger Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week with a friend in Vermont at Badger Cottage and it was a wonderful experience! Cubby and Frits were such gracious hosts. We enjoyed the privacy of the cottage but our hosts were nearby if we needed them. The cottage was very comfortable for two but would also be perfect for a couple with an older child. Everything we needed for our week stay was nearby and we were able to relax and enjoy the scenery instead of driving long distances. We enjoyed our frequent walks around the property on beautiful trails with incredible views. This cottage has it all and we hated to leave! See you next year Cubby and Frits! If you stay at the cottage be sure to stop at the Green Goddess Cafe just minutes away and take a hike at Moss Glen Falls.

Perfect winter getaway with our 2 dogs

  • 5 of 5

We drove out from Chicago with our two dogs in mid-February for a quick 3-day ski trip to Stowe...and the 16 hour drive was definitely worth it. Not only was the skiing amazing, but Badger Cottage made the trip unforgettable.

The cottage is cozy, yet spacious, and full of rustic charm. Lots of reclaimed wood and industrial antique pieces really give the cottage an authentically rustic feel, but the finishes are conveniently modern and sleek for a lovely "best of both worlds" feel. The cottage has hardwood floors throughout, with slate in the foyer, laundry room, and bathroom, which is perfect for easy clean up when our two dogs came in from playing in the snow. The full sized stacked washer and dryer were great for drying wet ski gear each night (and the heater was perfect for drying wet ski boots). We didn't use the gorgeous wood stove this time, but we plan to learn how to use it next time and take full advantage.

After skiing all day, the huge king sized bed in the loft upstairs felt like sleeping on clouds. We loved waking up and watching the sun rise from the upper windows. We also loved the single bed on the main floor, which came in handy a few times for post-skiing naps.

As for location, the cottage is nice and secluded, but everything you need is only a few minutes away in Waterbury or Stowe, including grocery stores, shopping, take out food, ski equipment shops, etc. The surrounding area is wooded and our dogs loved romping on the trails behind the cottage. They even got to meet the owners' adorable little yorkie mix. This place is surprisingly pet friendly, which is one of the reasons we initially booked it. We felt our dogs were as welcome as we were, which is rare for vacation properties.

We loved every minute of our stay at Badger Cottage and we can't wait to come back next winter for a full week (or longer!) Thank you Fritz and Cubby for a perfect winter getaway!!!
