About Cubby Momsen

My husband, Frits and I built this cottage from an old barn that we rescued. This was our home while building our new house just completed in October 2013. We lived here with our two dogs very comfortably for 21/2 years and now want to share it with our guests. Frits is a builder who can manage any building or repair job and I am an active real estate broker. Prior to building this new house we lived in Stowe for 35 years. We are available to our guests around the clock should you need anything.

Cubby Momsen purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Cubby Momsen chose Stowe Area

Whether you are a couple who love nature and the outdoors or just like to curl up next to the wood stove with a good book, you will enjoy this beautiful setting and charming cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Natural ledges, huge rock formations and gorgeous southerly views attracted us to this 18 acre parcel of land surrounded by larger conserved acreage. Building here was a challenge but well worth the effort. We love the convenience of being on the south side of Stowe for easy access to Burlington and the airport yet tucked away in our own private place to enjoy the birds and animals that reside here with us.

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

Close to Stowe AND Waterbury; clean, cozy cabin with lovely views and feels like home with large windows, open floor plan, comfortable bed and furniture. Owners available and attentive for all needs in timely manner- they live on property in another home in close proximity to Badger cottage. Loved the walking trail and being able to have dog off leash around the the property, and enjoyed a little sitting area outside looking at the view. Owners are VERY dog friendly- there is a 'guest' large dog bed and bowls for food and water! Be aware the fridge is apartment size...but the grocery store is 6 miles away for frequent re-stocking. There is a day bed for a 3rd person, but better suited to couple I think given the very open floor plan. Worth every penny of the nightly rate in terms of location, location, location AND quality of the rental (a new build with resourced materials, not a older cottage/cabin...) AND the lovely owners. Wanted to stay longer...would definitely book again!

Cozy and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was super cozy and located in a wonderful location! It's just far enough off the road and in the woods that you have privacy and peacefulness, but super close to the main strip on Mountain Road with all of the restaurants and bars! It's also located close to the mountain, too!

If you have pets, it's a great location for them to stay with you! They can roam the woods with the various paths and curl up by the woodstove after.

Clean home and super friendly owners! Would definitely recommend to our friends and family!

Another Magical Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Badger Cottage was absolutely magical. We arrived to find about 4-5 inches of fresh snowfall which made our evening walks and morning snowshoe treks on the adjoining trails with our yellow lab just perfect. The cottage was equally as perfect when we returned to sit in front of the woodstove to relax and re-energize. Many thanks for the cozy, comfortable accomodations and the warm hospitality- we will be back!

Gorgeous, cozy and perfect

  • 5 of 5

Awesome -- all details were taken into consideration...we couldn't have asked for a nicer stay. If only there had been more snow at Stowe. But that wasn't the owner's fault!

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was everything I thought it would be and more. The view was beautiful and the cotage was perfect. All my boyfriend said all weekend was "we should move here" and I 100% agreed 😊

Great cabin little cabin for 2

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over Thanksgiving, and it was opening day at the mountain. We pulled up to a private road uphill. The cabin is located in a cul-de-sac, away from the road, so it is very quiet and private. The cabin is adorable. Inside, the decor is cozy, very comfortable and charming. We basically had everything we needed. We enjoyed our stay very much. Location-wise, we were about a 20 minute drive to the mountain for skiiing, but right in between Waterbury and Stowe, which is what we wanted. Michaels restaurant is down the street. It was a 2 minute drive to the Cider Mill, which is a must for those cider donuts, and Prohibition Pig which is delicious, as well as Hen of the Wood, are both in Waterbury. We hope to come back again during the winter for more skiiing, and for me -- more eating -- the food is really great here too.
