SECLUDED CABIN ON 215 ACRES WITH ITS OWN POND

Derby Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

This unique cabin, accessed by our 1/2 mile easily navigated wilderness road is very comfortable, peaceful and private. Propane appliances (refrigerator, lights, stove, water heater) provide all the basic amenities. The lack of utility power only accentuates this great escape. We own the surrounding 215 acres and Vermont's North East Kingdom provides endless outdoor recreational opportunities. Great wildlife viewing (beaver, moose, waterfowl, song birds, deer). Fishing on the pond is excellent for small catfish, and Lake Memphremagog and good trout streams are nearby. Newport is only a 10 minute drive away for shopping, restaurants, entertainment. No shower, but the bathroom has a tub so you can enjoy a hot bath with a view of the pond. Please contact us for more information and photos. We have no cleaning service so guests are asked to bring their own linens and clean the cabin when they leave.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • non smoking only

RIght Out of A "Country Living" Magazine

RIght Out of A "Country Living" Magazine
  • 4 of 5
After reading the numerous reviews and seeing the pictures of this cabin, we knew this the place for our next vacation. We were not disappointed. Before we even opened the door, we were mesmerized by the beauty and serenity of the pond which we found lasted from sunrise to sunset. The frogs, the varied ducks, Canadian Geese, beaver, Ruby Throated Hummingbirds and Great Blue Herons all brought the pond to life in a never ending chorus of nature. Quite breathe taking at times. Once inside the cabin, we were met with a rustic charm that could have been right out of a "Country Living" magazine from the cast iron gas stove to the country quilts on the beds. Once you get used to the nuances of the cabin including no electricity, cooking with gas, planning ahead for bathes and the night noises, it is true relaxation. The cabin features a notebook with useful information of the local sights, a map of the surrounding area, very easy to follow directions for turning on and off the gas. Grocery stores, ice cream shops and gas stations are very nearby for easy access. The cabin comes complete with dishes, pots, pans, sliverware and other typical kitchen wares including a percolator coffee pot (coffee the old fashioned way!). During our stay, most of our time was spent either on the deck or in the screened in porch. We were nicely surprised at how few bugs there were, even for August! Activities we enjoyed in the surrounding community included a day at the water park at Jay Peak- a must do if you have children. The Pump House is full of fun slides, lazy river, surfing wall and is kept very clean with lots of food options. We also rented a pontoon from the Newport Marina for an afternoon on the lake doing a little fishing and sight seeing- would do again but suggest to call ahead as boats book quick in prime time. In addition, Kathy was very helpful with any questions asked and we would certainly recommend this cabin to anyone that wants to enjoy a "break from it all".

Relaxing and peaceful

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Cobb Pond for a week, with my son and daughter-in-law. It was perfect for what we needed - getting away from way too busy lives. When it rained we read, played board games, and did jigsaw puzzles. When the sun came out we walked the trails and canoed on the pond. Easy access to supplies and exploring the countryside. This is a great get-away for those who need the quiet (except for the frog chorus, which I missed after leaving!) and are comfortable with roughing it a little and cleaning up for the next lucky visitors.

A Weekend to relax and enjoy the great outdoors!

  • 5 of 5
I had a great time at this cabin. I am a mid aged guy who was looking for a place to unwind and enjoy the great outdoors and found it here at Cobb Pond. Kathy and Steve were great to work with and have a nice clean place to enjoy with lots of hiking trails and like other reviews say close enough to town if you forget or need anything. I rented this place for one weekend and I know I should have stayed longer but had to get back to CT. I stayed alone for the weekend just because my wife is not the kind who likes to rough it a little. The first night was interesting with all the new sounds but by the next night it was like putting on an old hat. I loved the fact the gate could be locked at night being alone gave me a better feeling for security. I went to bed each night by 9:00 and up at the crack of dawn to sit on the deck and try and get a picture of a moose. I could hear the moose but I guess they were shy and didn't want their picture taken. When the sun finally came up and the noise of the moose were long gone I would cast my line in the water to challenge my fishing skills. I am looking forward to next year, I want to make this a special weekend for myself it is nice to be alone once in a while and this place was everything I needed to take away the stress of working two jobs and never having enough time to get things done etc. Basically I had nothing to do unless I wanted to. Great time!

Awe inspiring

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough about how wonderful the experience or renting this cabin was for us. Kathy and Steve are very nice, very accommodating people. The cabin is truly a gorgeous place. Very well kept and pleasant to be in. Bathing while looking out at the pond in all its glory was amazing. We saw several flocks of geese come in to spend the night, heard many animals, from the barred owls and hawks to moose and bear. There are trails to hike on, lots of nature to see and adore. Less than 10 minutes away you can purchase anything you may have forgotten. I am looking forward to visiting this place again and again. This was by far the most relaxing and beautiful vacation we have ever been on. Thank you Kathy and Steve for sharing your cabin with the rest of us. It is truly a beauty everyone should see at least once in their lifetime!

Fantastic Get Away

  • 5 of 5
The pictures of this cabin do not do it justice. It is beautiful and extremely well kept, and very relaxing place to be. This is where my husband and I went for our honeymoon. There was a resident moose who came and visit us and swim in the pond. We brought our canoe and went exploring on the pong every night. It was an amazing week away.

Peace, Quiet and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5
This secluded cabin spells relaxation in every way I can think of. If you enjoy peace, solitude, nature and a place to "just be", this is it. Life is simple in a beautiful way on the pond, just how it should be. Inside and out the property has character and charm. All that is needed is provided, and what you think you don't have you can get in a ten minute drive. Much of the experience at the cabin is about being "off the grid", unplugged and not needing electronics. It is a rustic cabin, but not lacking in comfort - even the beds are as comfortable as home. The property owners are incredibly accommodating and friendly. For the nature-lovers, autumn is a lovely time to be there. Wake up to the geese, watch for a marsh hawk during the day and go to sleep to the owls. The sunrise over the pond with the fall color is spectacular. This spot provided one of the best vacations I've ever had.
