Property description

Please note: HomeAway does not calculate rates correctly for mid-week rentals.
Please visit our page at VermontLogHome.com for rates and availability.
Our rate for partial week rentals is $450 for the first two nights and $100 for each additional night.

Our romantic pet friendly log home getaway is located near the southern border of Vermont and rests beside a pond on 20 private acres surrounded by maple, oak, birch, and pine trees. From the front porch you can hear the rushing stream and waterfall just below the cabin through the woods. The exceptional geographic location offers a complete range of outdoor activities. Hike, boat, canoe, bicycle, fish, golf, ski and ice skate in season.


Peace and quiet...: Peace and quiet is what you will find here. Comfortable charming interiors include spacious living room with large fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, dining area, master suite, sleeping loft, and screened in porch. Every window gives a view of trees, pond, and/or pasture.

Vermont is beautiful...: Vermont is one of the most beautiful New England states boasting gorgeous scenery and weather. You will find many scenic towns, parks, and recreation areas nearby. If you want to explore the countryside, take the scenic drive along the Connecticut River or Route 9 through the Ski Country of Mount Snow and Haystack. Go back in time visiting downtown Brattleboro which offers many boutiques, restaurants, antique stores, and arts and crafts shops.

Southeast VT is a nice driving distance...: Located only 2 hours from Boston, 4 hours from NYC, 10 minutes from Brattleboro, 30 minutes from Mt Snow/Haystack, and 60 minutes from Bennington.

  • The shower in the bathroom that was added by the previous owners is only 28” wide and 26” deep. I don’t know why they did not turn the shower sideways and install it completely across the back of that bathroom. The size of it might be awkward for larger people. However, the water volume and water pressure make the shower a delight....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: This log home has been used by our family and also rented as a vacation rental since 1997 and which is described on HomeAway, FlipKey, and our own VermontLogHome.com web site. Typically the cabin is rented almost every week from June through October and then one weekend and one week per month for the remainder of the year. My plan was to continue to rent the cabin as a vacation rental to help fund my retirement. Happily, I met a lovely woman and we are making plans elsewhere, including _lots_ of ballroom dancing so we are selling this property.

Why the Owner Chose Guilford:
When I found the property in 1994, I walked the property in the rain and saw the stream, the waterfall and glacial pothole, and the pond. Arriving back at the cabin, I turned to the realtor and said 'I'll take it!' and he asked 'Don't you want to see the inside?' The property felt that good that I knew I could take care of anything needed in the inside. (Note: It did take 3 years to repair the inside and we have been renting it as a vacation rental since 1997). The cabin has comfortable charming interiors which include spacious living room with large fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, dining area, master suite, sleeping loft, and screened in porch. Every window gives a view of trees, pond, and pasture. The living room with cathedral ceiling has a large 4 foot wide fireplace which offers a great view of the fire.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace and quiet is what you will find here punctuated with visits from the flock of turkeys and the blue heron that returns each year.
