Overview

Eden Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 bathroom, 1 bedroom and loft. sleeps 4 comfortably.

Private, private private. Get away from the busy world we all live in. I will be opening my cabin in late May for rentals from June to November. Eden is a wonderful place to take in the Vermont summer or fall. It is a very peaceful and quiet spot that is perfect for someone who desires a serene retreat. The cabin faces west on the pond and has a screened porch overlooking the pond. This is a comfortable but simple cabin that does not have electricity but has propane lights, gas fridge, stove, hot water heater and full bathroom. Open design on lower level with kitchen, living room dining area and one bedroom and bathroom. Also has a loft for additional sleeping area. 400 feet of frontage on the pond with swimming area with canoe and dock. You can even swim au natural if you want ! This is an ideal spot for a quiet get away with hiking and biking trails nearby and many opportunities for canoeing and fishing. 40 minutes north of Stowe, Vt.The whole area is a recreational paradise: There are many opportunites within a few miles for biking, hiking, boating, fishing and most any other recreational activity one might want. There is a new indoor water park at Jay peak nearby! The camp is a beautiful place for the fall foliage too in Vermont and has a wood stove for those crisp fall days. Weekly rate is $600. The camp is available for rent from June through October. The daily rate for stays shorter than a week is $100. I also charge a refundable $75 cleaning fee.

Why Edward Blanchard chose Eden

We grew up in Vermont but left the state many years ago. This allowed us to have a place in Vermont again.

What makes this cabin unique

It is so private and we always liked being off the grid, even more important in todays world.

Cue "Box of Rain" by Greatful Dead

  • 5 of 5

I left Eden a little less than two weeks ago but find myself very much still there. Being ushered out of the chaos and claustrophobia of the city and into Mr. Blanchard's incandescently serene compound was as close to a religious experience as that initial bite of a Shake Shack burger or listening to The Stones for the first time. The cabin is the epitome of cozy and full of amenities. The pond is perfect for fishing, swimming and canoeing and the porch provides the perfect spot for reading, painting, singing, sunbathing, stargazing, dining and nauseating amounts of blissful merriment. Following the general consensus of all reviewers below and the adorable comments left in the vacation journals found inside the cabin; my partner and I can't wait to get back. Thanks for sharing all that beautiful seclusion with us!

Rustic and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I came for a long weekend away from it all, and that's what we got. Once we got the hang of the gas lights, the place was nice and cozy at night, even with no other lights in sight. The view over the secluded and all but uninhabited Gut Pond was unbeatable. I loved waking up early to watch the fog burn off it as the sun slowly lit up the trees. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook full meals, as well as a great little coffee percolator. We left during the day to hike and see the sights (Mount Mansfield was 45 minutes away) and even just driving through the countryside was worthwhile. A beautiful, peaceful place in a beautiful, peaceful part of the country.

Beautiful and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at the cabin. The setting is breathtakingly beautiful. At night, we lay out on the deck watching shooting stars and marveling at how many stars we could see. The cabin was cozy and had everything we needed. It took a couple tries for us to get comfortable lighting the propane lights, but once we figured it out it was easy. Ed was pleasant and easy to communicate with. We enjoyed canoeing and swimming in the lake. We also had a great day trip to Burlington -- the scenery on the drive was so beautiful we would've enjoyed the trip even if it hadn't involved a great brewery and restaurant in adorable Burlington.

Serene

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a getaway from the day to day, and found this gem of a place! The pond was picture perfect and the cabin couldn't have been cuter, just enough technology to make the stay comfortable, but no too much as to distract from our purpose, which was to escape the hustle and bustle and relax. The place was clean and well kept/supplied.

Plenty to do in the surrounding area, we took the Stowe mountain toll road and were met with glorious views, Our dog had a great time too, we found our way to Dog mountain where he was in his own glory.. these were the only two trips we made, as staying at the cabin was exactly all we wanted and needed. Thank you for making your retreat available it was great.

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four days at the cabin. We were looking for a relaxing place away from our busy lives. The pond cabin was the perfect place and more than we expected. We had a wonderful time enjoying the surroundings and the peace and quiet. During our stay we enjoyed watching a loon on the pond, as well as, a beaver family (2 babies & parents) that used to come out of their house closer to sunset. We are looking forward to go back next year and can't wait for another adventure at the pond cabin!

Peaceful and Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The photos really do not do this place justice - it is an incredibly peaceful getaway hidden in the woods overlooking a gorgeous pond. Plans for multiple hikes were easily abandoned in favor of simply sitting on the deck with a mug of coffee (or beer in the afternoon) in one hand and a book in the other. The lack of electricity was a huge plus - since cell service is present but spotty, you must actually turn off your phone to prevent the battery from draining. How wonderful not to have each moment interrupted with emails, texts, calls, or alerts. The moon was nearly full during our stay and it was so cool to watch it rise over the woods behind the cabin, illuminating the trees and bank across the pond. As others have noted, the nearby general stores have the basics, and if you need more, the larger towns are within an easy half hour's drive. We did make it up to Jay Peak for one hike - wonderful views of the Vermont countryside. Ed was a pleasure to work with. We look forward to visiting again in the future!
