Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Nestled in the woods looking up at Camels Hump is our cozy little cabin. A perfect getaway spot with unsurpassed views of the mountain. Camels Hump is Vermont's highest peak that is not developed by a ski area. It's all wilderness.

Feels like you’re a million miles away but it’s only a 15 minute drive from town and 4 major ski areas, Stowe, Sugarbush, Mad River and Bolton Valley are about 1/2 half hour away.

Camels Hump trail head is right down the road for access to awesome hiking, backcountry and XC skiing. Very rustic but with all the amenities.

It’s really not so little - about 1800 sq ft. with 2 bedrooms, large living room with massive fieldstone fireplace, spacious kitchen and well appointed bath and a toasty woodstove.

The upstairs master bedroom is huge with a king bed and large sitting area and frenchdoors leading to a small balcony.

The downstairs bedroom is large also and has a double bed and a twin. Amenities include washer/dryer, propane heat, all cookware and linens.

Although the roads are very well maintained 4 wheel drive is recommended in winter months or mud season.

John Barwick purchased this cabin in 2007

Why John Barwick chose Vermont

I had been intrigued by this property for years - the view, the proximity to Camels Hump trailhead and the feeling of seclusion while only being a short drive from town all made the cabin my favorite spot.

Great Ski Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the cabin! It kept us warm, even when the temperatures dipped well below zero (brrr!). The cabin was spacious enough for everyone, communication with John (the owner) was great, all in all no complaints.

Beds: Comfortable. Kitchen: Had all the tools we needed. Living Room: Cozy.

Would we stay here again? Yes.

Very sweet!

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful getaway. I liked being up in the mountains and yet not too far from anything. We had a great time. John is super nice too.

Perfect in everyway!

  • 5 of 5

This well appointed accommodation was conveniently located with a tremendous view of Camel's Hump. The cabin was warm and everything worked as promised. We'll be back. Property owner, John, could not be nicer with real concern for our comfort and enjoyment.
