The property is beautiful and a good value.

  • 5 of 5

We brought our 3 nephews and our golden retriever, Maxie for Easter weekend. The Cabin is cozy and equipped and had plenty of space for the five of us. Maxie and the boys spent hours in the crystal clear pond... boating/kayaking and having a blast. We enjoyed all the surrounding woods on our hikes directly from the cabin and found the cows to be an added bonus! Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was exactly what we needed. I wish we were staying longer. We were visiting friends at Lake St. Catherine and this was so close (easy ride back and forth) and we didn't have to rent for the whole week - just a few days. The house was very clean and Merry Lee was very responsive to whatever we needed. Thank you!

The kitchen supplies really need to be updated. The pots and pans were not in great condition. Other than that, we had a great stay and would like to go back. Thank you!!!

Ideal Place for a Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Hidden Valley Farm in Vermont was the absolute perfect place to hold our family reunion. Everyone had so much fun they want to go back for Thanksgiving and make it a family weekend, not just a picnic. The views are amazing, the setting a dream and the property a small piece of heaven. The log cabin was very comfortable, despite sweltering temperatures. A few small improvements could be made and were sent on a list but overall the best weekend of the summer!

And if we can make it happen, we will be back!

Nicely appointed, peaceful, log cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved that we were 10 minutes from Lake St. Catherine.

We enjoyed being atop a hill overlooking farm country. We got a kick out of watching the cows wander out of the treeline early in the a.m.

This was a nice experience.We' d definitely stay here again.

Thank you!
