About the property

Nestled on 86 secluded acres in the Green Mountains, the Adirondack style Moose Meadow Lodge in Waterbury, Vermont invites you to enjoy a truly unique experience.

Make yourselves at home and enjoy the peace and serenity of our secluded property. With luxury guest rooms, the property includes a hot tub, hiking trails, a trout pond, and the Sky Loft - a glass-enclosed gazebo at the highest point of the property with panoramic views.

Whether you love skiing, hiking, snowmobiling, biking, hunting, fishing, antiquing, fine dining, the arts, or simply getting some rest, the Moose Meadow Lodge is a perfect location to do everything or nothing at all.

A Vermont log cabin like no other, the Moose Meadow Lodge is close to Vermont's most popular attractions, including Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream factory, and the ski resorts of Stowe, Sugarbush, Bolton, and Mad River Glen. The friendly village of Waterbury, where you'll find everything you need, is only three miles away. Owners live on site.

This Is Not Your Ordinary Log Cabin: Here's a rare chance to experience luxury log home living. Each guest room is decorated with a unique theme and many handcrafted details. All rooms feature a private bath, distinctive log walls, comfortable beddings, great views, and at least one resident Teddy bear. With 4000 square feet of living space and 86 private acres with a private stocked trout pond, you'll never feel crowded at the Moose Meadow Lodge.

Are You Ready For Fresh Air, Peace And Quiet?: You're sure to find it at the Moose Meadow Lodge. Entering onto its long driveway surrounded by maple, spruce, and birch trees, you know you've arrived somewhere special. Enjoy a vigorous hike through our 86 acres and head up to the Sky Loft, a glass-enclosed gazebo on the highest point of the property with panoramic mountain views. Or, enjoy a lazy afternoon by the stream-fed trout pond.

Rustic Furnishings And Contemporary Comforts: Decorated with deer antler lamps, fly fishing rods, Amish twig rocking chairs and other Adirondack elements; the living room is as casual as it is comfortable. The Great Room is where guests sit around the fireplace while enjoying the mountain views with our collection of wildlife trophies, including our signature 19-point moose, wild turkey, pheasant, deer, black bear, fox, caribou, bob cat, mountain lion and perhaps the only African water buffalo in Vermont.

About Greg Trulson or Willie Docto

Willie Docto (left) and Greg Trulson are committed to providing a comfortable, fun, and make-yourself-at-home atmosphere at the Lodge. Incidentally, the two met in 1992 at a log home in West Virginia and have stayed at many log lodges ever since. In 1996, these former Washingtonians moved to Vermont to pursue their dream of owning a Lodge. They bought a single-family home on 86 acres, and after a couple of years of research, planning, fishing, hunting and renovating, they opened the Lodge in October of 1998.

In addition, Willie owns the only association management company in Vermont and produces festivals, concerts and events. He is also a freelance classical violinist, performing in orchestras in Vermont and Washington, DC. Greg is a former computer systems architect and trainer. He is an accomplished woodworker who created many of the furnishings and rustic decorations in the Lodge. His twig furniture and other works are made with wood from the property. His creations have been commissioned by people from as far as Maryland and Puerto Rico.

Both are very involved with the community. Willie was appointed by Gov. Peter Shumlin to serve on the Vermont Travel & Recreation Council, and is President of the Vermont Gay Tourism Association, and founder of the Eleva Chamber Players. He is also Past President of the Waterbury Tourism Council. Greg is Treasurer of the Eleva Chamber PLayers and is an elected Justice of the Peace and for many years served on the Duxbury Cemetery Commission. Greg officiates at weddings and civil marriages at the Lodge and throughout the state.

Greg Trulson or Willie Docto purchased this cabin in 1996
