Cabin on 38 acres part of which is an active Christmas Tree Farm and the rest is wooded mountain. The property is bucolic, featuring an old barn, mountain stream and pond. Beautiful views of the Green Mountains. There is a fire pit w. plenty of wood and tongs for roasting marshmallows. Ideal for hiking, snowshoeing then realxing by cozy new woodstove in the great room. Or relax in one of the hammocks listening to the creek meander by. A short ride to Quaint Old Bennington and Charming Manchester. Antique stores, premium outlets, museums and skiing all within a short drive. Please note that this is an active Christmas Tree Farm so there may be a farmer or two tending the trees while you are there- but you probably won't even notice them. #MountMeMo

About susan cicala
My husband and I have been married for 35 years and have 4 grown children who live around the country. We live full time in Delaware, but get to the cabin as often as possible. We have used VRBO many times and enjoy the personal touches that they offer.
susan cicala purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why susan cicala chose Shaftsbury
We were looking for some land in charming Vermont, when we came upon this slice of heaven. We are so thrilled with the cabin and the area, that we just bought the house next door. We would love to have you experience the wonderful scenery and serenity found here.
What makes this Cabin unique
Although the cabin is compact, it is comfortable for at least 6 people. There is one bedroom (queen) and a charming, private sleeping nook off of the kitchen (double). It has a large window that looks out over the property and the night sky. Up a steep ladder there are two small areas with 3 twin bds. (Please note, that it takes some effort to climb the ladder, so not suitable for small children or elderly) In addition to the refreshing outdoor shower there is a full indoor bath w tub/shower, laundry facilities and lots of vanity counter space for your toiletries. The kitchen area is small but well equipped- my husband likes to cook so all the utensils are there. As are serving pieces etc. The eating area seats 6 comfortably, but you may find yourself eating at the picnic table by the pond more often than not. Note that this is an active Christmas Tree Farm, so there may be a farmer or two tending to the trees. But no worries you probably won't even notice them if they are there.

Great place for a family trip
Had such a fun time over July 4th!
Exactly what was advertised. Loved it!
Even though the 100 degree weather made the 2nd floor unusable, still wonderful place!
Great property and cozy home
We decided to take a ski trip last min to Vermont and couldn't find a place to stay local, but after searching HomeAway, this home came up.
We were a little concerned about the time it would take to get to Mount Snow, but all in all it was a beautiful ride and not very long to get there.
The house was cozy and had a very farm house feel to it which was great! the master bedroom was cozy and the bed was very comfortable. The Sleeping area in the Kitchen was cozy for teens or young adults, and the loft upstairs was on the smaller size and would only be good for young children. The stairs and access to the upstairs loft was a little tight and tricky so be careful.
the property was amazing with a stream and pond that was running constantly, it really created a great atmosphere and I could see myself sitting there for hours. There were also some great trails to hike.
couple of things to watch out for were the roads getting there, it was a snowy first day and then it rained which caused the roads to become soft and trenched. We actually saw a car stuck in the middle of the road while going out one night. We had a 4x4 so no issues for us, and I don't see this being a normal issue.
all in all a great stay and somewhere I would visit again.
Great, isolated location in VT
This was our first extended trip to Vermont, and while it was a particularly warm, 80-degree Columbus Day weekend, the cabin at the Christmas Tree farm was a great place to stay. The layout is great, the amenities more than well kept, and the setting is fabulous. There's a multitude of places to explore and hang out just on the property itself. The area is great as well, nice and quiet without feeling too isolated. We even saw George RR Martin hunting while driving out to the cabin (thought my wife insists it was Santa Claus).
There were only two small caveats future renters should be aware of:
1. The ladder to the lofted beds is pretty steep; it may be dangerous for little kids, particularly if they need to get up during the night and pee.
2. There's guinea fowl on the property. While they didn't bother us the first day, they were all up in our business they second day. A little too close for comfort and they can get a bit noisy.
Beautiful Property, Homey Cabin in Green Mountains :)
Beautiful cabin and property! The photos don't do it justice! Is very homey and has all the basic amenities that you need for a weekend getaway. Susan was amazing, checking in with us periodically to make sure we had no issues but at the same time we felt we had complete privacy. Perfect VT getaway--right smack dab in the middle of the green mountains with tons of hiking/outdoor opportunities but close enough to some towns (manchester, bennington) if you wanted to go shopping or have dinner. You won't regret staying here!
Quaint, country house
Quiet, peaceful, out in the country. Very enjoyable.
Quaint Old Bennington features the Bennington Monument, Covered bridges, the Molly Stark scenic byway, Bennington Potters and Lake Paran. In Charming Manchester you'll fing premium outlets, Hildene (museum) Orivs flagship store and the Battenkill River. The cabin is nestled between these two towns as are plenty of restaurants, antique stores, gift shops, Mt Equinox skyline drive. All surrounded by the Green Mountains. The charm of Southern VT everywhere!
