About Mary Ann

We are delighted you are looking at our Hinkley Brook Cabin for your visit to Vermont. We trust you will find our cabin to be truly special. It was built in 2011 by us. Well, with the help of some very special friends (who are real contractors!)

The bulk of the cabin was built with logs from the land, which were milled here in Grafton. We have designed the cabin with the goal of making it a very special get-a-way. We are excited to share it with you.

Mary Ann purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Mary Ann chose Stratton and Bromley Ski Areas

You will find that you need to bring very little.

The bedrooms are furnished with quality linens and towels are provided. The kitchen is very simple; microwave, convection/toaster oven, electric skillet, crock pot, weber bbq, George Foreman grill, blender, coffee pot. There are terrific restaurants in the area.

You have chosen an area of Vermont that truly is beautiful and special. There is information in the cabin to help you choose your activities as well as provide you with other information to make your stay enjoyable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

First these were the most amazing oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! Top 3 in my life! So glad we were able to meet. There were so many adorable things in the Cabin - felt like home. My favorite was meditating early morning in the lavender garden on the big rock with the sound of the brook. so peaceful. As karma would have it, we visited Artisans Park, Vermont Forager. We were talking about our cabin in Grafton and how the lavender garden was my favorite spot. The woman told me they get their jam lavender in Grafton. So enjoy the fruits of your labor!!! We also visited the Sculpture of Life Garden - a truly spiritual place. Went on a covered bridge hunt, hiked and kayaked. So much more we want to see!

Until next time

A secluded dream of a cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I'll start by saying I almost never write reviews. That's just to emphasize how wonderful our experience was. We arrived to a bottle of red wine, a hunk of cheddar, apples and some of the most delicious home made cookies I've had. And then we saw they had even thought of providing cream for our morning coffee! Mary Ann and Bill have done an amazing job with this beautiful little place, the details were just magnificent and well attended to. The setting was magical and there were even a couple of chairs set up next to the creek. We had a hard time deciding where to have our coffee so we just had a few cups! I highly recommend stopping by and saying hi to Mary Ann and Bill as well, the beauty and the wonder of this amazing place is a reflection of these two wonderful people who are enjoying life to its fullest.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write such a great review! Was super fun to meet you as well. We love sharing our little Cabin in the trees with people like you. Really happy you 'cleaned out' the FirePit and enjoyed a campfire with that full moon! Come back anytime......

Amazing little cabin in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

I was in awe of this cabin from the minute we arrived. Everything was immaculate and so well thought out. The location was amazing, so peaceful and quiet with only the sounds of the birds and the babbling brook. We enjoyed every minute of our stay there and plan to come back next year. I would HIGHLY recommend the Hinkley Brook Cabin to anyone!

This cabin was glorious. Perfectly secluded, but we could easily walk into town. Super cozy, with treats and a kind note left for us. Easy to find, we received directions well in advance and GPS took us right to the cabin. We had originally been nervous about the compost toilet - but it wasn't scary at all and quite easy to use. Would highly recommend to anyone, and we fully plan on returning.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for two nights with my girlfriend and this cabin was absolutely perfect. We wanted a peaceful getaway at a cute little cabin in the woods; we got that and more. The interior is even better and cozier than the pictures can show and the property managers were infinitely kind, helpful and welcoming. There was a great selection of DVDs in addition to wifi. Fantastic privacy, scenery and little town a short walk away. I often rely on reviews when booking any sort of trip like this and I would 100% recommend it to anyone considering staying here! :)

WOW, Perfect Cabin in the Woods!

  • 5 of 5

If you have ever envisioned a romantic getaway or a retreat to de-stress or regain your thoughts - and at the perfect place on earth - you must stay at this perfect cabin in the woods. This cabin has all the modern amenities along with a terrific layout including the loft bedroom with the spiral staircase and an electric stove (for ambiance), the back porch and the kitchen. The cabin is carved into a hill in the middle of the woods. We arrived to a thoughtful platter of wine, cheese, crackers, apples and cookies. The owners literally left nothing to be desired including the coffee and cream waiting in the refrigerator! Wow, we were so impressed, we reserved it again for a few months later.
