Robert Frost Mountain Cabins offer new, spacious, artisan-crafted, fully-furnished, timber frame cabins with spectacular views overlooking the Green Mountains. Each cabin has 2 bedrooms, full bath, fully equipped kitchen, living / dining room, Swedish reading nook, gas fireplaces, wireless internet and panoramic views. Positioned on the Eastern slopes of Robert Frost Mountain and nestled on 112 acres bordering the Green Mountain National Forest, our charming cabins include all of the contemporary comforts and are conveniently located near Middlebury and a short distance from Middlebury College’s Main and Bread Loaf Campuses. We offer year round short term or extended stay lodging. Our unique, stand-alone, private cabins are perfect for individuals, families or couples desiring a romantic Vermont getaway.
My husband and I visited this area for the first time as a combination anniversary / bucket list adventure, including hiking in the Adirondacks and a fresh Maine lobster at Chauncey's. He was the blessed one who actually found this little gem in the mountains. From the time we booked the cabin to the moment we left, the owners were unimaginably kind, accommodating and hospitable. The cabins are fairly new (some brand new), equipped with all that you'll need. The environment is homey (right down to the campfire, complete with hot chocolate and two overly friendly pooches), and the accommodations are handcrafted, unique and impressive. We were the only guests for the majority of the week and so it was extraordinarily quiet and relaxing. The sunrise and double rainbows over the mountain backdrop were absolutely breathtaking. The bonus was the early morning visit by a red fox. We’ve already told several family and friends about this amazing find! If you're looking to slow down, relax and enjoy the mountains, this is your place. We're already talking about how soon we can return! Thank you for the memories!
We drove up to Vermont in the middle of a snowstorm, so we arrived extremely late at night after a very slow drive. As we finally pulled into the driveway we were stunned to be met by Marty, the owner who had been waiting for us and helped us unload and gave us banana bread and hot chocolate. Huge relief.
The cabins are new, immaculate, and well equipped. The boys from both cabins built a luge run down the hill and borrowed sleds from the owners, while we tried their snow shoes.
There is a great common area in the main barn with exercise machines which went unused - we were exhausted from the drive and skiing at Middlebury Bowl.
While the cabins are deep in the woods, they are quite close to Middlebury which is a real town with all the facilities you would expect. Very weird - like turning left from a road in the woods and suddenly finding yourself in the Downtown Boston!
Highly recommend the cabins - especially if you have a family and want to cook, hang out, and not worry about disturbing other people.
BTW - the owners were kind enough to do some grocery shopping for us - that was huge.
(I ticked Romantic Getaway even though that was hardly the way our holiday went - too many kids! But I can vaguely remember those sorts of weekends and this would fit the bill).
We came for a short get-away with our 3 children (13, 10 and 1 1/2) and spent 3 wonderful days at the Robert Frost cabins. We arrived in the middle of a blizzard and Marty and Carol's welcome was heart warming. They were very helpful and did everything to make our stay enjoyable.
The cabin was very tastefully decorated, cosy and warm, very clean, great shower. We were able to cook (oven + gas) and spend some relaxing time watching DVDs from Marty and Carol's collection. The Wi-Fi is definitely a plus.
The setting is beautiful and we enjoyed several walks on the property, with the dogs! Marty and Carol also lent us some sleds and snow shoes, to the great enjoyment of the family. The location is quite remote and very quiet and peaceful. There is a small downhill ski resort nearby, quite fun with the powder, a Nordic ski center, and the town of Middlebury is not far- cannot comment too much on the town as we only visited the supermarket (good-sized) and had a quick tour with our car.
Would definitely recommend the cabins to friends and relatives, both with and without children.
Robert Frost Mountain Cabins offers the best of both worlds. When you stay with us you’ll be tucked away in the small, quiet town of Ripton but within short drives to local attractions, events, recreation and dining.
