About Jeremy Cole
I grew up in the Cole Cabin and the Cole House. Stratton was started by my mother, Malvine Cole, who was often called the Mother of Stratton Mountain. I learned to ski on the hillside near the Cabin and the House as well as at Bromley, Stratton and Mount Snow, the three ski areas in the area.
Why Jeremy Cole chose Stratton
The Cole Cabin offers an old style of vacation that is quiet, private and away from it all in the backwoods of Vermont, but it is also close to the Stratton Ski Area and other places of interest in Southern Vermont. This is a warm, friendly, and cozy dwelling that some guests refer to as a hobbit house. The Cole Cabin was built out of logs cut down with hand saws the old fashioned way and then transported to the cabin site with horses, where they were placed on top each other and chinked.
What makes this Cabin unique
Quiet, private with old fashioned charm. A 3/4 acre pond that has been recently cleaned out and re-landscaped with its own rowboat and access is a special part of the Cole Cabin experience. Young children are especially attracted to the pond with its many water creatures (frogs, salamanders, fish). A brook flows on the back of the property. If you like to hike, you can drive to the other side of Stratton and get access to the Long Trails's trail head as well as a trail that leads to the Stratton fire tower. The Stratton Resort is very close, but you are not a part of it, so you get the convenience of being close, but do away with the noise and congestion. It takes seven minutes to drive up to the ski area. Pikes Falls is two miles down the road, which means you can take a leisurely walk to it or be there in minutes if you drive down to it. Manchester is 20 minutes away, the Vermont Country Store is another 20 minute drive. Brattleboro is 45 minutes away.

Cozy well-located cabin near Stratton’s Sun Bowl
Owner Jeremy Cole greeted us, showed us how everything works in and around the cabin... including the pond in the backyard that doubles as a perfect skating rink (once the snow is shoveled). Small kitchen is well equipped, very hot showers, one double bed and two bunk beds (can sleep four comfortably). Well heated (including a fireplace/stove). WiFi helpful too. Short drive to Stratton’s Sun Bowl (3 minutes). We shall return!!
Thank you, Robert for staying in the Cole Cabin and for the nice review.
One correction: The master bedroom has a queen-size bed with a thick fouton mattress, not a "double bed".
Few minutes from Stratton sky area.
Cabin was in perfect condition and Jeremy was very helpful during our stay.
Will come back!
Old log cabin with additions. Quaint and cozy. Plenty of room for the 4 of us. Nice yard and pond.
Small spaces but welcoming for a family to spend quality time together. Everything included makes it convenient. Internet was inconsistently working for 2 I-phones and a laptop usage. It had rained a lot during our stay so we couldn’t enjoy the back patio. It was also very hot and humid and only had one movable fan to use plus a ceiling fan in the bedroom. But overall very comfortable and charming. We enjoyed our stay and we were able to do a lot of sightseeing locally.
Thank you very much for your review of the Cole Cabin in Stratton. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and had a good vacation.
I am sorry that the internet did not work to your satisfaction. It comes a long way down the road and sometimes is flakey especially when it has been storming. It normally provides easy access for email and for general browsing and the watching of an occasional movie. It is not designed for heavy downloading or gaming.
As for the fans, I do have additional fans I can provide to renters who would like them. The temperatures during your stay were so cool in the evening (low to mid 60s) that I didn’t think to ask if you might need an additional fan.
Thanks for bringing these issues to my attention. I appreciate it and thank you for staying with us.
Peaceful Rustic Retreat
Beautiful setting for quiet relaxation. Owner very helpful when storm took out wifi. The cabin is cozy, with a delightful secluded setting.
Wanderlust weekend at the Cole cabin
My son and I recently had a most enjoyable and relaxing stay at the Cole cabin. We felt as if we were the only inhabitants for miles!
The cabin was comfortably set-up for guests and we felt very much at home there. It’s proximity to the base of Stratton Mountain was most convenient (a mile and a half or so), but the cabin truly seemed as if it were tucked away in the wilderness.
It was very welcoming of Jeremy to stop by the cabin on Friday morning to introduce himself and drop off an extra set of keys.
We would love to return the this “little piece of heaven” sometime in the future.

Charming cabin on a pond
We loved the proximity to Stratton, Manchester and all of their respective activities. The cabin offered access to a swimming pond and brook, which is great for kids who are on the lookout for frogs, tadpoles, and salamanders. The cabin offered the basic amenities, which was nice. The owner was very prompt in providing us information and instructions were clearly labelled within the cabin from heating to garbage disposal. We would definitely rent the cabin again for a long weekend!
