Overview

Belmont Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

**** Open late April thru October... Closed in the winter...

**** For WINTER, see our OTHER LISTING #71156. 'Ski Cottage...Minutes to Okemo...' ****

A one-room Vermont mountain Cabin one mile to picturesque Belmont Village and Star Lake, and 6 miles to Okemo Resort and Ludlow. Enjoy this guest cabin on a knoll above our home, with a deck overlooking Star Lake, meadows, mountain vistas and spectacular sunsets. Sleeps 1 or 2 guests (Queen); completely renovated with new, modern kitchenette and bath. A beautiful mountain get-away, yet close to activities.

Nearby to mountain lakes - swim, fish, boat rentals. Central to sightseeing, golf, tennis, horseback riding, hiking, biking; near historic Weston Playhouse and Weston Priory. Surrounded by Vermont forests and autumn foliage.

We are in the heart of the Green Mountains between Killington and Stratton/Bromley. We have beautiful (spectacular!!) views off to the west and northwest (great sunsets). The cabin sits on a hill, at the edge of a pasture, at 2000 feet above sea level and overlooks a lake and mountains beyond. We are one mile from Star Lake which has a beach and boat access.

Share our corner of Vermont paradise, surrounded by 180 acres of our land, and hundreds more acres of friends, family and the State of Vermont. We have our own trail network for hiking, and there's lots of other hiking all around the town and local area. On our land across the road from the cabin there are four beaver ponds that string along a brook that runs into Star Lake.

Although nestled away in the hills of Vermont, our cabin is in the heart of the Vermont ski and tourist area so there are lots of restaurants, shops, and activities within 5 to 10 miles.

NO SMOKING

DOGS allowed with permission; please inquire when booking.

(sorry, NO CATS)

NOTE – no TV, so enjoy a real get-away vacation :) ... tho the cabin does have hi-speed internet :):) and a radio/CD player.

Available late April thru October

For WINTER rentals see our ski cottage, VRBO #71156, or call/email for more info.

About The Owner

My wife and I are retired and live full time in Belmont. This guest cabin sits on a knoll above our house. Come visit us in our little corner of paradise :)

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2004

Why The Owner chose Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area

Ron's family began coming to Belmont for summers in 1956 and his parents moved here full-time from New York City in 1970. As a teenager Ron worked on a local farm and the family came up to Belmont for every vacation, all year 'round. Ron and Dottie moved here full-time in 2001 and enjoy all of Vermont's seasons -- You will too :)

What makes this cabin unique

We are in the heart of the Green Mountains between Killington and Stratton/Bromley, and minutes to Okemo. We have beautiful (spectacular!!) views off to the west and northwest (great sunsets). Our cabin sits on a knoll at 2100 feet above sea level and overlooks a lake with a 75 mile view across the mountains of Vermont and into New York State (we see the highest mountain in NY). We are one mile from Star Lake which has a beach and boat access. The cabin is very private being surrounded by 180 acres of our land, and hundreds more acres of friends, family and the State of Vermont. We have our own trail network for hiking, snowshoeing and xc skiing, and there's lots of other hiking all around the town and local area. On our land across the road from the cottage there are four beaver ponds that string along a brook that runs into Star Lake.

..... and we have a moose that visits every now and then [EMAIL us for this picture and many others].

Although private, this cabin is in the heart of the Vermont ski and tourist area so there are lots of restaurants, shops, and activities within 5 to 10 miles (Mt. Holly, Ludlow, Weston, etc.)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks again, Ron. It was a pleasure meeting you. I had a wonderful time there in your neck of the woods... one of the best weeks of my life... really!

Please keep me updated on things. I believe I would like to book again next year. Maybe for two-three weeks this time. (Mid Sept to mid Oct., perhaps).

Thanks,
Oct 2006

Charming, well-equipped cabin in a scenic and peaceful corner of Vermont

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for six days in mid-August in Ron's and Dottie's idyllic cabin on a hill. We enjoyed it very much. The cabin, while simple, is provided with everything one needs, in abundance. It was spotlessly clean and everything was in excellent condition. Facing west, allowing for beautiful afternoons and sunsets, the cabin has many windows, all with screens and shades, so it can be as light and breezy as one wishes inside. Outside there is a huge deck with Adirondack chairs and a picnic table. This was our favorite part... the sunsets were staggering, but we even enjoyed a summer storm. The area is lovely, with fields and woods, near the small and friendly village of Belmont (or Mechanicsville until it was renamed in the early 20th century); and the cabin is set well back from a little-traveled road. It is deliciously quiet. A thick folder put together by Ron and Dottie has tons of information on the area, including menus and maps, and suggestions of pertinent websites to follow up on. Ron was extremely friendly and helpful. He was on call for any questions, easy to contact, and very nice!, going out of his way, for example, to help us find a hike on our last day, and answering all questions (including a couple of unnecessary ones due to not having read the folder) with cheerful patience. He and Dottie gave us delicious large summer squash from their garden. All in all we felt most welcome in a relaxed atmosphere, while at the same time enjoying total privacy. We hope to return. Highly recommended!

Magical, beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

We can't wait to come back!!! This cabin is simply perfect. On the car ride home, we decided we needed to book another weekend. Our 16 month old especially loved the deck! So much so that we need to build a deck at home. Thank you Ron and Dottie for your hospitality!

Lovely!

We had a very nice stay here. Ron and Dottie were very helpful and we relaxed a good bit. It is a comfortable cabin with everything one could need. It was raining when we arrived but the next days were very nice. I would highly recommend staying here!

A lovely retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful cottage in a beautiful spot in Vermont! I spent a long weekend combining a bit of work with some downtime. The cottage is fully equipped and very comfortable with a stunning view of Star Lake and evening sunsets. I even spotted a female moose from the deck one day. I would highly recommend a stay here!

Absolutely Lovely

  • 5 of 5

I came for a short visit in the fall and loved it. The view from the cabin is exquisite. The owners are welcoming and friendly and make it easy to feel right at home. The location is excellent, close to good hikes, and easy access to shops. The cabin itself is very cozy, feels rustic but is clean and well supplied with all the essentials. Initially, I thought all these five star reviews might be too good to be true; but no, this place really is that wonderful.
