STOWE LOG CABIN ADVENTURE!

Stowe Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bunk Bedroom (4 beds) + Loft Queen Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

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.

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

About Karen or Abby Nicholson

Our family lived in the cabin for a year when we were building our current house. We have a small farm on our property, separate from the cabin area. We have lived and loved Stowe's natural beauty and amenities since 1989.

Karen or Abby Nicholson purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Karen or Abby Nicholson chose Stowe

This Cabin is a perfect escape when we want to get away from it all or have a different experience. Renters love the comfortable yet rustic living in the cabin, the beauty of the setting (skies filled with stars, the pond, wildlife sounds and sounds of silence) and the feeling of getting away from it all but having all that Stowe has to offer if they wish to explore it.

What makes this cabin unique

Quiet, solitude, family togetherness, laughter, fun, connection to the land, peace...

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am from New Zealand and my partner from Spain. We are traveling the world and came here. This cabin is very special to us. Reading through the guestbook, it obviously means the same to many others. We spent an extra night due to a snowstorm. We watched the snow fall, read, conversed and were just happy to be here. Thank you for giving us this experience. It will be remembered always.

Rustic and restorative!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was a breath of fresh air amidst the fast-paced technology-centered routine of everyday life. The days we spent swimming, kayaking, and relaxing here felt in many ways, like the first time we'd been able to breathe and think clearly in months. It is hard not to look out at the placid surface of the pond, flanked by rustling conifers, crickets chirping, and not feel at peace. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful experience with us. P.S. Percolator coffee is delicious!

Roughing it in VT

  • 5 of 5
I decided to go way out of my element for what I wanted to do and where to stay for a few vacation days for myself and the family and went with the "roughing it" theme at the cabin. This was a lovely compromise between a hotel resort room which I wanted and the pitching a tent my husband wanted in the Stowe VT area. Overall we were all very pleased with the accommodations and the adventure that went with staying in a rustic cabin without running water, no electricity and a compost toilet. First of all the toilet was much better than I could have imagined -- clean and non-smelly. The gas lamps and gas fireplace were very charming and kept us warm. The bedding was comfortable enough and great comforters and pillows were provided. The cabin was cozy enough to keep us all together but still allow space away either in the above loft or the bunk room if anyone needed time out to read a book or some privacy. During our two nights we didn't go into town to shower but the kids did splash in the pond and the Nicholsons provided some showering suggestions.
The kids had a great time out on the private and safe pond in the kayaks and catching frogs and catfish in the pond. We grilled on the gas barbecue and ate at pond side on the nice picnic table. Later in the evenings we had a great time roasting sausages over a fire on the pit and the smores came later.
The cabin was comfortable enough to relax in on a rainy day but we were close enough to the tourist attractions of Waterbury and Stowe that we took advantage of a short drive to enjoy the Ben and Jerrys ice cream factory, Cold Hollow Apple Cider mill and the Bike path in Stowe.
This was a great opportunity for us to put away the electronics and TV for the kids and the cell phone, Facebook and emails for my husband and I. We had fun playing cards and Jenga by candlelight with the kids and I can't ever recalling spending so much consecutive time outdoors with the family all working and having fun together. That in itself was priceless.
We would definitely encourage someone reading about this rustic vacation getaway who would normally overlook this type of opportunity to give it a chance and realize that there can be a happy compromise between becoming one with nature and not giving up on culture and civilization.
We will definitely be back -- probably fall although for the right people a winter getaway at the cabin would be a different but marvelous type of adventure all of its own.

Owner's Response: The cabin is the perfect place for those wishing for the peaceful, outdoor, unplugged adventure that camping gives but who don't want to invest in all the camping equipment or just don't want to sleep/live in a tent. The cabin has its own charm and the setting here is also like having your own private park which is tough to find.

A very special place

  • 5 of 5
My family including two kids had a terrific time staying at this cabin, which is so much more than simply a cabin, since it has its own pond and hiking trails, all in total privacy. It's like having your own state park. Also, the owners are great people. We'll be going back there.

Owner's Response: We are always happy to share this special place with others. We do hope you do return with your children or perhaps for a romantic get-away. We had a couple come when dating and it was such a special stay at the cabin that they returned and he proposed to her by the pond.

Magical

  • 5 of 5
The cabin, the woods, the town, but first and foremost, the cabin and the surrounding woods, absolutely magical. We were there during some very cold nights and the gas stove kept the cabin cozy and warm. We hope to go back some day.
Thank you for everything.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
The listing is very accurate. The property was clean and well maintained, and the owners were very pleasant and helpful. We found in this cabin and its surrounding everything we looked for. It was even better because we changed all our plans we had and simply stayed there almost the whole 5 days. We wanted to explore near mountains and waterfalls, but we could not help and rather enjoyed solitude and quietness the cabin offers. In addition we could enjoy private pond for everyday kayaking, forest for light hiking, and every evening sitting at fire pit and gazing at starry night you hardly see in high populated and illuminated areas. We did not miss any nearby activities, attractions, or restaurants. We had everything we needed in the cabin and around. We came back home absolutely relaxed. I would recommend this property anyone looking for relax in a quiet and solitude place, and I'm sure we will come back again.

Serenity, Solitude, Reflection, and Family Connection

  • 5 of 5
The cabin, nestled high on a cliff, is a place of serenity, solitude, reflection, relaxation and where we gained family connection. The natural beauty surrounds you in this place. The cabin's post and beams, twigs that line and shape it, sits alone in the wilderness and reminds us of the power of simplicity, the importance of peace in our lives and the connection of family. Our tired muscles ache from a day of skiing but there is abundant joy to be found as I sat on the porch and listened to the quiet.

We will return to the cabin again, maybe I'll come alone to do some writing. I am home here. Thank you so much for sharing this paradise.
