Our home is nestled between Birch Mountain and the winding Ottaquechee River. It offers a perfect balance between nature and modern convenience.

Only a short walk to a number of natural beaver lodges, and located in an area known for moose sightings, our home welcomes you with an authentic brush of nature Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.

Do not let the rich natural surroundings and native wildlife deceive you; there is much to do and see in the surrounding areas: we are located only 3 minutes from Killington's Skyship Gondola, 8 minutes from Pico, 15 minutes from Woodstock, and 20 minutes from Rutland or Okemo. Your possibilities are limitless: be it skiing, hiking, watching a movie, attending a concert, golfing, dining out, Beaver Lodge offers you a location with prime access to entertainment and recreation.

A bit of a homebody? No problem. There is still plenty to do: fish the many rivers and lakes in the vicinity (we angled a 20 lb. trout in front of the house), hike the hundreds of wooded acres behind the property, enjoy a bonfire, relax with a few lawn or board games located in our game chest, or simply chill, grill, and breath in the stress-free air on the covered porch. In our basement entertainment center,watch DVD or play video games on the 50 inch big screen TVs, play pool, foosball, shuffleboard, darts or cards.

The home has more than 2,000 square feet of living space on the first two floors and another 1,000 square feet in the entertainment center. The interior design offers an open, spacious, yet intimate, homey feel. Our modern kitchen flows into a warm dining space, and drifts into the spacious great room, perfect for conversation and relaxation. The pine-log construction, hardwood floors and dimmed lighting create an inviting, rustic ambiance reminiscent of the logger’s cabins that rested on the plot in the past. When the day darkens and cools, take advantage of our wood burning fireplace. Bask in the natural warmth and aromas of fresh pine, and let yourself plunge into the gentle, alluring simplicity of a well-stoked fire.

Enjoy our cozy accommodation: four leather recliners, an authentic birch rocker two six-foot pillow chairs and a double pillow sleeper. Listen to the stereo, or enjoy Fiber TV on our 50 inch flat panel. Take advantage of our music and video libraries to create your own perfect atmosphere.

If you are looking for privacy, retire to the loft, the second story bedroom or the private second-story chalet balcony. Chat in the Adirondack chairs, read in an oaken rocker, unwind in the massaging jets of the second-story tub or just melt into the soft queen-sized bed.

If you really can’t get away from it all, no worries. Our fiber wireless internet keeps you connected and Verizon Wireless receives four bars on our site.

Our home is friendly and functional. We located the mudroom away from all the activity, tucked into the walk out basement along with the washer, dryer and a wall mounted ironing board. We placed the clothes draws under beds and put closets in each bedroom so that nothing interferes with your enjoyment, and comfort on the two main floors.

We hope you stay with us. You will find the atmosphere intoxicating, you won’t want to leave, so please visit again.

Cheers, Ed and Linda

About Owner

Linda and I (Ed) and our four boys have been visiting the Killington area, winter, spring, summer and fall since 1991. Vermont is a terrific complement to our lives on Long Island NY… mountains instead of beaches, cool breezes instead of the warm winds of the Atlantic, wide open and unexplored spaces instead of the cosmopolitan kaleidoscope of people and places. Each of us have only terrific memories and experiences in Vermont, skiing, tubing, swimming, hiking, biking, collecting, chatting… the list goes on… maybe that is why we love Vermont so much… so much to do… so much to experience. Our sons are now 21-29 and beginning to build lives of their own. Linda and I finally decided to take the plunge and create a spot where regardless of where the future may take our sons they have a place to return to that guarantees them some relaxation and fun. In 2008, we bought our dream site and built a log home for our family to enjoy year round. We stay here so the home is equipped for the owner (us) to live in. When we are not here we share our home with family, friends and individuals like yourself who find the Vermont experience as rewarding as we do. Come stay with us… return… maybe become a neighbor…

What makes this Lodge unique

Secluded two acres on the Ottaquechee River. Close to everything - Woodstock, Rutland and of course Killington and Pico - only a 5 minute drive to the Killington Base Lodge. In the summer tube from in front of the home to the Long Trail Brewery - 5 miles away, swim at nearby Echo and Union Lakes or golf at the many terrific courses. In Autumn walk the literally hundreds of acres behind the home and check out the magnificent foliage – sugar maple – white birch black locust. In Spring catalog the hundreds of wildflowers growing in the gardens on the property, build a bonfire in our fire pit and wait for the Moose. Our unique home has all the modern comforts yet is reminiscent of an earlier simpler time. Real log construction keeps you warm in the winter and cooler in the summer through the natural process of radial heating. Relax with friends in the great room with a real wood fireplace or sit quietly, read and observe the goings on below form the loft. The covered deck is perfect to observe the wildlife or grill in any season and if you want more privacy the 2nd floor balcony and master bedroom will definitely do the trick. The home has all wood floors and is practical yet elegant. It is fully furnished and outfitted and can easily accommodate a large group (we are a family of 6 and if everyone brings a friend that will make it 12 – no problem. We follow the National Park Service rules: “Carry In – Carry Out – Leave Only Footprints”

                                                                    Paul E.

                                                                    We stayed for 4 nights in mid-March for a Killington ski trip and found the home warm, cozy and comfortable for our group...you certainly feel that you have gotten away in a modern log cabin. My only c/o is that the kitchen lighting is dim which made it difficult working in the kitchen at times and the only can opener was broken. Minor irritants for an overall fun stay.

                                                                    Clean, well supplied and convenient to Pico & Killington

                                                                    Edward S.

                                                                    This lodge was all that we could have asked for. We had 12 people in our party and it was certainly adequate for our needs. Everything one could possibly need was available in the kitchen and we found the place immaculate. The basement contained a shuffleboard, pool table, card table and dartboard that kept everyone entertained. It was a short ride to both Pico Peak and Killington Mountain. It snowed while we were there and the plow came and took care of the driveway and the access road was cleared as well. I am hard-pressed to come up with any complaint about this accommodation. If I had to give one complaint it was that the can-opener didn't work very well. Hardly something that ruined our vacation! I would recommend this cabin highly.

                                                                    beautiful house...beautiful setting

                                                                    I've rented a number of vacation properties over the years but this one has to be one of my favorites. Most places you rent feel like the owners hid all their good stuff...not here. The kitchen had everything you wish you had at home and then some. Every room in the house was nicely appointed with touches that someone spent a lot of time and effort on. It's also worth mentioning that the cabin was surrounded by trees and a beautiful stream in front...an absolutely perfect spot for a cabin.

                                                                    Great cabin in a beautiful location

A very quick drive to Killington’s Skyeship Gondola and not far from Killington Rd to the main base area. A quick drive in the opposite direction to Long Trail Brewing Co. We had excellent conditions and the house made the trip perfect! We will definitely keep this place in mind in the future.

It was everything we hoped for and more - lots of space, comfortable beds, a well-stocked kitchen, and a playroom that made us wish we had more time to enjoy it all. Ed and Linda were quick to respond to our questions and extremely gracious. They obviously enjoy their cabin and are eager to have guests enjoy it as well. We will definitely stay here again the next time our travels bring us to Vermont. Thanks so much for your hospitality, Ed and Linda!
