Goldilocks cabin is a cozy retreat for a romantic getaway, and ideal for small families as well. The cabin is on 4 wooded acres, but just 1 mile from Stowe village, eight miles to Mt. Mansfield and skiing, and just a few miles to the Pinnacle, one of the most spectacular hikes in Vermont.
Goldilocks cabin is well appointed with Black Forest and French antiques, hand loomed rugs, and antler chandeliers--the perfect combination of rustic and luxury. The piping hot wood stove and the chiming cuckoo clock make this cabin a cozy retreat after a day of hiking or skiing. The large master bedroom has an antique four poster bed, complete with a sumptuous mattress, and a sitting alcove with a sleeper sofa. The sleeping loft (a favorite of older children) is accessed by a ladder and has a full size bed. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room as well. The cabin has two decks and a gas barbecue. Goldilocks is pet-friendly. Well behaved, approved pets are always welcome.

Stowe has wonderful hiking trails, both easy and challenging. There are miles and miles on bike paths for biking and Rollerblading. In the summer there are open air concerts, golfing, fly fishing, hot air balloon rides. There are many beautiful lakes nearby for hiking, canoeing or fishing. Stowe is known for its great restaurants, many to choose from just minutes away. There are two spas in Stowe, the Stowe Flake, and Top Notch—both wonderful. There's lots of antiquing in the surrounding areas--and prices in Vermont are quite reasonable. For a day trip choose from Burlington, Montpelier or Montreal.
Stowe is known as the Aspen of the North, and the mountain is recently been improved with new runs, lifts, and world class shopping. There are hundreds of miles of trails for cross country skiing or snow shoeing, and of course ice skating as well.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I am an interior designer, living on Nantucket Island. In 2003 I worked for a design firm with an office in Stowe. When my employer made Stowe her year-round home, she offered to sell me her ski cabin, turn key, so she could purchase something larger. It was an offer I couldn't refuse—and one I have never regretted. Goldilocks cabin is just right. I have many happy memories there.
Why the Owner Chose Stowe: We fell in love with Stowe, and with Goldilocks cabin.
