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.

Great place to unwind
The property is at least as good if not even better than the photos of it. The owners were very responsive and helpful. The property has a very remote feel yet shopping options are very close and easily found.
Secluded, rustic, very clean, wildlife abounds.
We spent a week in the woods at our very secluded little slice of wonder. Mr. beaver swam across the pond each night between 6 & 6:30pm. For nature lovers the bathtub was just wonderful, a full view of the lake as you rekax in the tub. We spent lots of time on the screen porch reading and just talking, it was like having an HD-TV view of the pond. Both Derby & Newport are just minutes away for a piece of civilization. Unfortunately we use Verizon wireless and were able to get reception. Do yourself a favor, get unplugged and stay here, you will live it.
A bit off-the-grid, but worth it!
Enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, secluded cabin. Clean and comfortable, and the whole pond to ourselves. Our hosts were accommodating and communicative and made squaring away the logistics of arriving and propane heat easy. Would definitely come back!
An ideal weekend of seclusion
This cabin rental is an ideal place for a secluded getaway in nature; the lack of power and cell phone signal proved to be a benefit. The only evidence I had of other humans for several days was the occasional far off sound of a motor running. The woods surrounding the cabin are peaceful, but full of delightful surprises. The old farmhouse and old orchard are wonderful areas to explore. The pond itself if larger than expected and entirely private. I massively enjoyed rowing around while looking at the trees and the wildlife. I was there only with my girlfriend, but the cabin could easily sleep more. My main regret is that I did not book more time -- something I intend to remedy next year.
Beautiful quiet restful
We really loved going here! As a fan of screened in porches I enjoyed being here immensely!!! We did go into Newport to check out the scene and recommend a spin by the library. But, really it is all about the peaceful surroundings at the Pond! Lots of nature and so relaxing- wish we could stay longer! Want to get back for another Season!!!
A rustic, peaceful paradise!
The cabin was amazing. It's secluded and peaceful. My friend and I found surprises around every corner of the cabin. There is everything you need to cook, bathe, sleep etc. but it still feels like you are way off the beaten path. The land itself is fascinating and rural. Us city folk loved it!
