About the property

You'll stay in a custom built, finely crafted tiny (384 sf + loft) house with high ceilings, large windows and lots of light, even a cupola. Modeled after a nineteenth century Vermont schoolhouse, the design is true to character - from the exposed beams to the square head nails in wide pine flooring - using the best of modern technology - built green with an on-demand water heater, propane heat and high end finishes with IKEA fixtures in the kitchen and bathroom.

Located on a quiet dirt road in the bucolic town of Cabot, your closest neighbors will be the ravens in the red pines, the chickadees in the cedars and a variety of other woodland creatures. Trails around the property will take you to a swimming pond and, another, to a quiet lake where you’ll have the use of two kayaks. The peace and quiet of Vermont’s rural living will restore your spirit and perhaps inspire you in your creative endeavors. You’ll be near some of Vermont’s best biking, hiking and sightseeing areas where a relaxing lifestyle and splendid green mountain vistas provide a backdrop to charming small towns to explore.

We travel much of the year and may or may not be in residence during your visit.

An upstairs space is accessible by circular stairway. The downstairs has a comfy futon, convertible for comfy sleeping.

You'll love being here if you like exploring Vermont's natural beauty - quiet except for the calls of the ravens, the early morning loon cries (the loon couple, surprisingly, makes occasional fly by) and the rushing wind in the maples.

Step out your back door to a private, expansive yard and enjoy all that Vermont has to offer. (A patio will be ready by early July.)

Quiet, pristine property away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Cabot cottage! We came up for a quiet weekend away from it all and that’s exactly what we got. No interruptions, no noise, just peace and quiet. Cynthia and Phillip have done an amazing job with the cabin. It’s clean, in perfect shape, and stocked with the essentials. Cynthia is a lovely host. She makes sure your directions to get to the cabin are crystal clear, makes you feel comfortable and welcome upon your arrival and either she or Phillip are available, should you need them during your stay.

Wonderful paradise in the Vermont countryside

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week is this amazing tiny home and loved every minute. Small but spacious and perfect for the two of us to have a relaxing and disconnected week. 30 minutes outside of Montpelier so lots of food options and shopping options. Was very sad to leave this morning but will plan another trip in the future! Highly recommend!!!!!!

Sweet, airy cabin.

Enjoyed our weekend stay in this attractive, light, and airy cabin. Lovely surroundings and got to see a black bear who came to visit the yard.
