Overview

Newfane Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

At 'Ridgeview' you can go to sleep to the flicker of a wood stove, wake up to sunshine streaming through tall windows onto honey-colored pine flooring, and watch from your deck as sunlight fills the river valley and plays across the ridge opposite.

Beautiful newer construction of 1000 square feet, two-and-a-half story "salt box" cottage on ten acres, three of which are open and level grounds. Tastefully furnished with fully equipped kitchen, two full baths, two wood stoves, washer/dryer and an additional refrigerator/freezer for additional food storage in the foyer. Ground floor includes private master bedroom with queen bed, bay window, full bath, and private deck. Open floor plan and vaulted ceiling on main level, with queen sleeper and a large view deck. Loft with full bed for additional sleeping accommodations. Great for couples, two couples, or small families. Discounts offered for singles and couples and families with small children.

Located in beautiful Newfane, which is very quiet and serene, but just minutes to skiing and snowboarding, swimming, canoeing, day lilies, golf, hiking, galleries, antiques, Marlboro Music Festival, Brattleboro shopping and restaurants.

Prices include linens, cable internet, WIFI, firewood and utilities except long distance phone. Once you've stayed, you'll want to come back!

About Jim Baldwin

I'm a copywriter, editor, book consultant, a songwriter and a musician. I love being in Vermont. I write some of my best stuff here.

Jim Baldwin purchased this cottage in 1983

Why Jim Baldwin chose Mount Snow Area

I grew up in the area and still have family and many friends in Vermont. When the possibility arose of having a home here, it just seemed like the right thing.

What makes this cottage unique

Whenever someone says to me, 'Imagine that you are in your special spot, a place where you feel safe and comfortable, and where you feel a profound sense of belonging,' I think of the deck of this cottage. The peace that comes from staying here lasts me for weeks.

A slice of heaven in Vermont

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing experience. I was looking for technology detox and to relax after the first four months of middle school teaching and I got even more than I expected. The owner was such a pleasure to deal with and the accommodations were cozy and inviting. The house is set away in the woods, but with an amazing backyard view of the mountains. It is very accessible to all the necessities - homemade food, hiking trails, and clean air. The house had two woodburning stoves - one in the dowsnstairs bedroom, and one upstairs in the living area. I loved the loft bed and the skylight windows that either showed off the amazing night sky or got snow covered after a typical Vermont storm. The driveway was plowed for us without having to make a call and the highways are always cleared. Take advantage of all the surrounding towns with the antique stores, homemade pies, and the snowshoeing trails. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to just get away!

Comfortable, quiet and secluded

  • 4 of 5

Jim provided detailed instructions on the property and excellent suggestions on the area which enhanced our stay.

We found the house to be rustic but comfortable for the two of us.

Newfane is well located for enjoying all that southern Vermont has to offer. We enjoyed the area restaurants, farm stands, Brattleboro shopping and swimming at Indian love call.

Remote, Charming, Cozy

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a romantic Valentine weekend. We love to cross country ski, cook and read. The cottage is about 30 minutes from Timber Creek Cross Country Ski Center, near Mt. Snow, and Grafton Ponds Cross Country Ski Area. Both are gorgeous! The cottage is sweet! Neat and clean and tastefully furnished with lots of windows and sunlight. Two wood burning stoves add heat and ambiance. Neighboring houses cannot be seen, just trees, sky and Mt. Snow. So, it feels totally remote and private. The owner is wonderful and truly wants his guests to have a great experience. We hope to return.

Beautiful Escape!

  • 5 of 5

I wish there was video of my face when I opened the front door... It was LOVE at first sight :) The pictures don't give this cabin enough justice! (And the pix are pretty good) Our stay was perfect from beginning to end thanks to Jim and his layout that he has setup. Every question you could possibly ask is typed up and ready to read, from - where to eat, where to shop, what to do around town -- and then everything about What to do in the Cabin itself in case you had any issues/ need extra towels, how to work the wooden stoves etc.

It was GREAT!

We brought food with us to cook the first night which worked out nicely. The previous guests even started to stock up the pantry with spices and tin foil!! We made sure to replenish as well :)

We ventured out the rest of the time we were there heading into the small surrounding towns having a ball- wine tastings, bought some Vermont Cheddar & Syrup of course.

This was a romantic, beautiful getaway that we will definitely be coming back to. I can't wait to book out next trip! Thanks again Jim!!

Just a perfect New Year's weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and the way Jim portrait the cabin as a cozy cottage with a view is very appealing but wait until you are there physically. It is beautiful, it is cozy and it is as someone wrote, a piece of heaven. Inside is very warm, everything works perfect and you find all you need to make your stay very confortably. But I think the outdoor is what makes this place unforgettable. I will be back Jim but at least for a couple of weeks, 5 days is just NOT enough...
