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 Waterbury

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 views and a great stay

  • 5 of 5

First impressions are truly spectacular with this cabin. Pulling up on an unseasonably warm October afternoon, the backdrop unfolded itself and we were hooked. The cabin itself did not temper this feeling. All the amenities you could want in a cozy, but very spacious house. Well appointed. Easy access to the Monroe Trail. Do not hesitate to book.

great place

  • 4 of 5

Great Place Cabin looks like the pictures on the inside. Very Large and spacious. Large kitchen fully equipped(except no dishwasher). Great views from deck. Clean. Breakfast at the inn was amazing .John and staff super friendly and helpful. Cabin is located about 15 minutes from town and part of it is on a dirt road. Plenty to do in the area. Just note the cabin does not have cable only can play dvd's.

Vermont Paradise

  • 5 of 5

First of all, we were so fortunate to have come across this gem. John was a fantastic host, gave us perfect directions and all the information we would need to make our stay just perfect. The house was so cozy. We came during a late March snowstorm so the wood burning fireplace made our stay extra special. The home is clean and comfortable. It includes all the items you would need in a home away from home. The keyless entry was simple and efficient. Can't wait to come back again!

Great location, size and view

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely weekend at this cottage which was well equipped, warm and pleasant. Bedrooms were comfortable, and bathroom and kitchen nicely set up. The fireplace was a bonus for a chilly spring night!

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.
