This is rustic but clean and comfortable living in a beautiful, private setting. Wilderness hiking, snowshoeing, xc skiing and exploration - right out the front door. This is for people looking for solitude and a rustic outdoor experience. NO running water, NO electricity, NO TV, NO video, NO hot tubs, NO problems.
Our family lived in this cabin for a few summers and then a full year while we built our house and it was fabulous. It's not for everyone but for people looking for a bit more of an adventure: sitting around the fire pit, exploring the woods, swimming, kayaking, snowshoeing, star-gazing, reading, playing a game, or just more privacy and solitude than hotels or camping can offer... this is for you. All that come, LOVE it (see reviews).
The cabin, though feeling remote, is only a few miles from 4 xc ski center, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, spas, pools, shopping, theaters, mountains, and everything Stowe has to offer.
Here are more details about this wonderful rustic living experience:
The 1st floor consists of: a main room with kitchen and table; an area for your things; a separate bathroom; and a separate 4 bunk bed room. Above there is a loft that is 1/2 the size of the first floor with queen futon and double futon. (Renters bring their sleeping bags or sheets or we can provide them for an additional $20 per bed.)
There is a short hike from the parking area to the cabin. In the winter months we keep the snow packed down so you can walk it in your boots. We also provide a camping sled if you want to pull your things in.
It has two gas lights for light in the cabin, a cozy Vermont Castings gas stove for heat, a two burner Coleman stove for cooking inside and a gas grill for deck cooking. We supply all the gas. We have all the pots and pans you need and other kitchen utensils. We will supply water. It's very comfortable.
For a toilet there is a composting toilet in the cabin which is very comfortable (not odorous) or a visit the custom, artist-built outhouse a short distance from the cabin. For showering there are several spas in town open to the public where you can get a day pass and use their facilities (ranging from $10 - 25pp including swimming pools, saunas, hot tubs, work out facilities and clean showers). Many find this is a nice way to end the day before heading back to the cabin for dinner and relaxation.
It is comfortable and very charming. It is for those wishing a special cabin/wilderness experience in a beautiful, private setting yet with easy access to all that Stowe has to offer.
We have lived in Stowe for 24 years and are happy to give you any recommendations for things in Stowe that you are interested in doing.
For all who have rented it has exceeded their expectations.
We look forward to welcoming you to our little cabin paradise. Think of us when you want to get away from it all (yet have it all, close by, if needed). Jeff, Karen Eric & Abby
