Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This beautiful, cedar log cabin home was built in 2000. It sits at the end of a long dirt road on four acres of privacy, and overlooks the tranquil Mad River Valley and the stunning Green Mountains of Vermont. Whether from the huge deck or the living room with the wide-plank pine floors and cathedral ceiling, you'll never get tired of the view.

On the first floor, the master bedroom and bath (with claw-foot tub) open up to the deck via French-glass doors, as do the living room and dining room. There is also a half-bath downstairs. Two other spacious bedrooms are upstairs, and share a full bath. The home is completely furnished (one of them with its own private balcony), with comfort in mind and you don't need to bring a thing except a will to relax and have fun.

The owners, who live in Covington, Georgia - and who named their cabin Kudzu North, for the famous vine that grows in the South - want visitors to enjoy their Vermont vacation home as much as they do. And they want you to enjoy this special part of New England, from the villages five minutes away, to the evening walks past horse pastures and mountain vistas. And don't forget - the best pizza in America is just down the road.

Throughout the summer, the nights are almost always cool and the days warm. On those days when it gets hot, we have floor fans (there is no central AC) to circulate the air until dusk.

About Rob Levin

Neither one of us is from New England. Rebecca is an Atlanta native and international flight attendant, and Rob is a small-town North Carolina native and owns a book publishing company in Atlanta. They have a daughter who graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute near Boston and is a robotics engineer in the Silicon Valley, CA. Still living at home are two cats and a dog, and a horse just down the road. Rob & Rebecca, Covington, GA

Rob Levin purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Rob Levin chose Sugarbush Mountain

We built this home in 2000 after owning a much-smaller log cabin in the Rocky Mountains, but over the years, getting there became a major proposition. We love Vermont because of its beauty in all seasons and its myriad villages, each one more bucolic than the one before it. We can get here in five hours from Georgia and know that we're a world away. The Mad River Valley was actually recommended to us by a friend in Colorado (a well-known ski writer), as well as a French native who owns a French restaurant in the Mad River Valley. Rebecca (who is fluent in French) met him while working a flight from Paris. We came here and didn't look anywhere else.

What makes this cabin unique

Rebecca loves working in the yard and riding her neighbors' horses. Rob, a former newspaper reporter, simply enjoys tooling down to the Warren Store in the morning to get pastries and the New York Times and sit outside by the river that runs right by the store. We both enjoy the Saturday farmer's market in Waitsfield, pizza with friends at American Flatbread, and a beer with chips and salsa on the deck at sunset. With the wireless DSL, Rob can keep up with work while relaxing on any of three decks, or sometimes takes the laptop into one of the many coffee shops in the nearby villages.

Perfect setting & stay for Norwich Graduation

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect property. It is very clean, well kept, and warm inside. The view is amazing. The ambience is pure Vermont. AS Norwich parents who used VRBO a lot over the past four years we were very impressed with this property. The owner, Rob, is awesome and has everything down to a science. His write-ups on the local area attractions are spot on.

We travelled with our family for our son's graduation. The Warrant Store does catering and/or they make large dishes ahead of time. They made us a pans of pulled pork, mac&cheese, broccoli salad that were incredibly good. WE just picked them up at their store on the way back to this home. Warmed them up in the oven and enjoyed our family and setting. For Norwich families visiting their student(s) I would highly rate this property.

Everything one might want in a cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one night and wished we could have stayed longer! Cabin is at the end of a road and nicely secluded. The bedrooms are nice and all of the central areas are fantastic to gather and be social. Loved the view from the back as we could see Sugarbush and the other mountains connected to it. This place is very relaxing and is nicely appointed with a gas stove, big windows and big back deck. We all thought that this was the perfect place to relax after skiing. We would definitely come back again.

Amazing get away

The house is the quintessential Vermont retreat, and the Mad River valley has so much to offer. A great, relaxing get away. And owners Rob and Rebecca are so easy to work with.

Breathtaking views of the Valley

  • 5 of 5

Enjoy the spectacular views of the Mad River Valley. "Kudzu North" as the owners call their beautiful log cabin oasis. It's truly a special place to get away, enjoy family and friends. We had the wonderful opportunity to stay at Rob's cabin during Norwich University's Alumni weekend this past September. Rob's home is beautifully appointed and the kitchen is well stocked for all your cooking desires. We had ample space to entertain inside and out on the deck that overlooks the valley.The cabin is located close to Warren and Waitsfield. We enjoyed hiking and touring the area in search of historical cover bridges. Rob is an excellent host, I would recommend "Kudzu North" and look forward to returning this winter.
