About Joe and Lori Rapuano

Vermonter's at heart! It always feels great to be at our cabin in Vermont.

Why Joe and Lori Rapuano chose West Wardsboro

Very convenient to get to Mount Snow and Stratton's Sunbowl lodge. Charming VT-style cabin is well-maintained.

What makes this house unique

Peace & quiet away from the ski lodge crowds yet only minutes away from restaurants and other attractions. Soothing babbling brook nearby and hiking/snowshoeing along logging trails in the woods behind my house.

Quiet, quaint, and cozy!

Perfect location to many outdoor activities! Easy drive to the Vermont Country Store. We explored during the day, play many family games at night by the fire place. Can't wait to visit again in the summer to do some hiking!

Fantastic relaxing weekend getaway cabin

  • 5 of 5
We spent a summer weekend at this cozy, well-kept, fully furnished little cabin and enjoyed every minute! The cabin comes complete with a nearby babbling brook and wandering neighborhood chickens. The cabin was very clean and extremely comfortable. Overall it was very relaxing place to stay with lots of charm, and situated right in the Green Mountains just a stone's throw from Mt. Snow. We wandered into the nearby villages and grabbed a bite which was fun and delicious. I would highly recommend this property to anyone interested!

Clean, relaxing, beautiful mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic little cabin in the heart of the Green Mountains just a stone's throw from Mt. Snow. The cabin is very well-kept, clean, and fully equipped for vacation activities. The owners are very responsive and attentive. There is a babbling brook just across the road and the neighbor's chickens were an added treat. We highly recommend this property! You won't regret it.

Great place to getaway from it all

  • 5 of 5
We just had a wonderful 5 day stay at Joe and Lori's cabin in West Wardsboro. We brought our 3 kids and our 2 dogs and there was plenty of room for everyone.
The cabin has a lot of character and we could tell that Joe, Lori and their kids put a lot of work into it to make it inviting and homelike. It is clean, well-kept and has all the comforts of home :)
Joe came by before we arrived to make sure everything was okay at the house and brought some fans because the weather was going to be warm.
We enjoyed going to Stratton Mt. and Mt. Snow to do some hiking, Grout Pond to go swimming and visit the flea market in Wilmington.
We definitely recommend their cabin to anyone who wants to get away, yet have all the comforts of home.

Perfect for a Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect for a winter weekend of skiing at Stratton! Joe (the owner) was very accommodating and helpful. We stayed for 2 nights with 6 adults and had plenty of room. The home was very clean and well-maintained. It was in a great location and easy to find. I read on another review that the wi-fi did not work, but we did not have this problem. Your phone will most likely not have service, but who doesn't love a weekend cut off from reality to relax?! There is a great TV with cable and lots of board games to keep you entertained. This would be a great place for kids also, as one of the bedrooms has 3 twin beds... what fun! Thank you to Joe and homeaway.com for a wonderful weekend!

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend of skiing at Mount Snow. We wanted to stay close to the mountain, but still have some seclusion from the mobs of people staying at the base lodges. Many of the "cabins/cottages" for rent in the area are astronomical in price and far more than you'd need for a couples retreat. Joe & Lori's Cabin was perfect, 5 minutes from Mt. Snow, 5 minutes from the general store/gas station, beautiful scenery and seclusion right on the main route with a background river permeating the silence of winter. The house was clean, warm, cozy and has a wonderful open floor-plan for the 1st floor living space. The owner's pictures don't come close to illustrating how remarkably nice this cabin is. Everything was in working order and the TV as well as the wifi worked perfectly. If following the directions from CT at night, it's easy to miss, so if you go over the 1 lane bridge, you've gone 5 houses too far. Another note is that while I did see plenty of people at Mt. Snow using cell phones, my network didn't get any service within 30 miles of this particular area. However, if this happens to you, you can connect your phone to the wifi at the house and use Skype for calls without having to bring a phone card for long distance on the land line. You won't want to leave this perfect get-away.

Map

Car: recommended

Hugging the Dover Brook between Mount Snow and Stratton near the Stratton-Arlington Road. Close to Vermont VAST snowmobile trails and HuskyWorks.com dogsled rides. Near Grout Pond (swimming, fishing and kayaking) and the Stratton Trail (hiking and nature discovery). Reasonable distance to larger Somerset and Harriman Reservoirs. On scenic Rt 100 (motorcycle and bicycle heaven!) in the village of West Wardsboro, VT. Spectacular views of the Milky Way and meteor showers at night.

Other Activities: snowshoeing, Catamount XC trail system, dogsled rides, snowmobiling, sleigh rides, kayaking, and hiking.

Golf: Challenging Mt. Snow, Haystack and Stratton golf courses are all nearby.

Ski: Incredible skiing & snowboarding terrain at both Mt. Snow (4 quick miles from my ski house) and Stratton (10 easy miles from my ski house). Big Bromley and Magic Mountain are 35 minutes away. Okemo is 45 minutes away.
