Recently built 1035 sq ft cabin with 900 ft of frontage on the Ompompanoosuc River. Loft area contains a large BR with a double bed and an attached sitting room with a single bed. The vaulted living room has a double sized sofa-bed and a Harry Potter "cupboard-under-the-stairs" that will hold a cot for your little wizard. A crib is available if needed. The large kitchen has a table, central island, double sink, refrigerator, microwave, convection oven, and a working antique wood-burning cook stove (Crawford Jubilee). Two bathrooms open off the kitchen -- one contains a sink, shower and W/C; the other a W/C. A large wrap-around deck overlooks the river and has ample room for picnic table and lounge chairs. A propane grill is by the deck. A piped gravity-fed spring provides low-pressure water even if the power goes out.
Hiking trails, a waterfall, a 30+ mile overlook, a frog pond, a swimming hole, and a gravel bar "beach" will keep everyone entertained. Telephone and high-speed internet is included. TV signals don't make it into this valley so a VCR and CD video library is set up in the living room. A 175-yd practice fairway is part of the 35 acre wooded retreat. Access to the cabin is by a gravel road with a stone-bottom ford that is easily handled by an SUV during low water. During high water a pedestrian bridge does the trick. Moose, deer, bobcat, bear, turkey, and numerous small birds and animals call this property "home". If you're a rock climber, there are cliffs here that will test your abilities.
DIRECTIONS: Exit 14 of I-91. Head NW on Rt 113 towards Chelsea for 7-8 miles; when you reach B&B Store in West Fairlee, continue 2.65-mi more; property is on the right right past the yellow cape. Keep these directions handy as the mountains raise havoc with GPS and cell signals. NOTE: This is a drunk, druggie, pervert -free accommodation.
