Great spot for x-country skiing or just a retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is really nice, bright and definitely warm in the winter. The kitchen is well equipped for a cottage (microwave, decent selection of utensils, etc.). Bring bottled water and you will be set. There are a few staples in the cabinets, but I brought my own oils, spices, etc. The bed in the master bedroom is great!

I had a great week. Went alone, with my dog, and got a lot of writing done. I am not a nervous person about being alone in the country, but for those who are, this might be a good spot, because there are other houses quite close, but far enough away that you have great privacy. The property is quite large and the view to the north is lovely.

It's an excellent spot for x-country skiing, because there are two centres with groomed trails nearby. It is (sort of) midway between two small towns, one of which was the location for the Hitchcock film The Trouble with Harry. One of the key locations is actually just down the road.

This was a great place, larger than it looks, with gorgeous yard and surrounded by trees!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our two children and had plenty of room for all of our things. The kitchen and bathrooms were well equipped as was the patio, which was ready for grilling. We enjoyed throwing a frisbie in the large yard and watching the sun rise from the outdoor chairs. The beds were comfy too! Overall this was a great value for us.

Northeast Kingdom Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our short weekend stay at the Sunset Cottage. It was a perfect jumping point for everything we were looking to do in Vermont. It's about a 15 minute drive to Hill Farmstead Brewery where we got to enjoy some amazing beers It's another 15 minutes to the Craftsbury Outdoor Center for some great cross country skiing. The Craftsbury General store had everything we needed to make our own dinner so that we could enjoy our nights relaxing in the peaceful cottage. Looking forward to our next stay.

Wonderful cottage with nice sunset views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during Christmas and had a great time. The cottage is nice and the interior is eclectic which lots of work from local artists hanging on the wall. This made it feel very cozy much more so than a house styled through. The views out the panoramic windows were great and the location quiet. The surroundings are beautiful countryside and the XC skiing facility at the Craftsbury Outdoor center are top notch. (They managed to get decent trails during difficult weather conditions). Highly recommended!
