The house is in a fantastic location just outside woodstock but very peaceful, very rustic.
We had no trouble locating the property and found it to be as described on the vrbo website. Rustic is a good way to describe the look and feel of the house which is what we expected from the vrbo website description. The house was cleaned prior to our arrival. There is a list of instructions on the fridge at the property with some useful utilities contact information (we didn't need to use them though as everything worked fine), however amongst other things doing the laundry before we left was one of these instructions, that was not going to be achievable as we had to leave early on our day of departure to travel back to New York to fly home to the UK. Given we had paid $100 cleaning fee via vrbo at the time of booking I didn't think this was a reasonable request, maybe it didn't apply to vrbo guests? We did vacuum etc before leaving as we did with any priory we rent around the world so that was not a problem for us
All that said we had a great time in a truly unique property which had good wifi and unlimited wood for the huge stove that easily heated the whole house on the couple of cooler evenings. I would have no trouble recommending the house to friends and family. You also have immediate access into the state park so can go hiking the local trails from the front door, which was just what we were looking for.
I want to live here
My partner and I love New England—particularly Vermont—and have been thinking about moving there, so we wanted to visit. We also both were in desperate need of a long vacation. This cabin was perfect for us. The only oddity, to me, is that there is a rental/stay information on the fridge, one clause of which says that, although they will arrange to have someone take care of it, the owners prefer that the tenants themselves mow the lawn. Additionally, we were not aware that we had to bear the monetary cost of garbage disposal.
Quiet, peaceful, comfortable, remote but not too. Small shower on first level, not convenient to bedrooms on second floor.
Cozy and Peaceful
We really enjoyed our stay in this cute and historic cabin. The property was amazing. The view was spectacular. The property is secluded yet you are minutes from downtown Woodstock. Woodstock is a very charming town with cute shops and delicious cafes. Tom was very easy to work with and answered all of my questions. I would definitely recommend this property. However, I would not recommend it if you have small children. The loft is quite open.
Peace at last
Enjoyed the beautiful silence here at this wonderful cabin. I loved drinking coffee on the porch in the morning while deer, turkeys, bears, and foxes wandered nearby. My favorite part was the proximity to the trails above. During the week we attended the Vermont Auto Show, conquered the Great Vermont Corn Maze,viewed the nearby Quechee Gorge and Vin Nature Center, played mini golf, and saw the state fair in Rutland. We managed to squeeze in some reading and some of the games at the cabin during our downtime. The cabin itself feels historic, with its wide exposed beams, and the old pictures of it are really neat to see. It's conveniently located, has great views, and the night sky is incredible, particularly since we were there on a moonless night with a meteor shower. Highly recommend staying here if you need to get back to nature and soothe your soul.
Rustic, extremely peaceful !
This cabin is lovely, quiet and peaceful. An abundance of wildlife, hummingbirds, deer, owls and hawks tonnage a few. Very rustic but comfortable. Great, attentive host !
1/4 mile to hiking trails in the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park.
