Space 850 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights

Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, sleeps 4-5

Located in the heart of the Green Mountains on ten acres. Mountain views and remote feel, but only 20 minutes from Warren/Waitsfield area or 10 minutes to Rochester. Ski or snowshoe out the back door or cozy up and watch movies on home theater with over 200 movies. New, with all the modern amenities, but done in classic cabin style. Enjoy walking/sledding on site or hiking the nearby Long Trail, then a relaxing hot tub under the stars. 15 mins to Middlebury Snow Bowl, 25 mins to Sugarbush and Mad River Glen or 45 to Killington. Great swimming, kayaking, etc. Perfect any season!

Size limitations: The cabin is 850 sq ft. so not designed for large groups. It is one large space downstairs and two separate bedrooms above. It has a much larger feel than it's size indicates however, due to a two story loft above. There is also a generously sized mud room/entry with a heated floor to dry out ski boots and stow gear. It is therefore best suited for couples or small families who are looking for a well designed and appointed quality cabin. Anyone looking for a traditional Vermont experience will certainly enjoy the areas offerings and the warmth and intimacy provided in the cabin.

4wd Car recommendation: It is recommended that you have a 4wd car or truck in the winter.

About Jeff

Jeff is a Boston architect/contractor and resident of Concord for 20 years. He designed and restored the cabin on his own, working weekends over the course of three years. Initially, his wife was very reluctant, but once done, she is now the cabin's biggest fan. As it was designed and built for his family, Jeff has left no detail undone.

Jeff purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Jeff chose Granville

This area of Vermont is close enough to Boston (less than 3 hours), yet far enough to be in the heart of pristine Vermont. Jeff has been coming to this area since the mid 1970's and dreamed of having a retreat here for 35 years. Skiing is only 15-30 minutes away, and several romantic villages are nearby, giving endless options to explore and enjoy. Being on 10 acres and in Granville, it is also very private and peaceful. Often we just spend the weekend there, relaxing and basking in the cabin's great light and warmth.

What makes this cabin unique

Although the existing cabin was in sad repair, Jeff saw the potential, the views, and had the vision, tools and skills to make it happen. It is now our favorite place to be and we have established many great relationships there. It is a very active and engaging community, which we love being a part of and welcome others to share in, too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jeff.



We can't thank you enough for providing us with lodging that is so comfortable and with such nice amenities. After playing tourist during our stay last summer, we stuck a bit closer to home this time. Highlights were finding the swimming holes at Warren Falls and across from Newtons, Sunset Hike and local farmer's markets. Everything we ventured out to do was great fun! Also, it was wonderful to have our dog, Ginger along. Thinking we are hearty Southerners, who have endured a terrifically hot summer thus far, we did not believe we would need the A/C in Vermont, but I must confess that we broke down and used it one evening. We were so thankful for it!



We really appreciate everything!

Living room has a gas stove which resembles a wood stove, but is much safer and cleaner to operate.

Incredible Weekend in Vermont!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend, pug puppy, and I had a wonderful long weekend at this cottage in Vermont! We're Vermont lovers, and this cottage was in the perfect location. We enjoyed exploring the beautiful property with the puppy, the hot tub, the movie theater, and the gas stove! A big thanks to Jeff for providing us with a lot of helpful information about the area - we tried many of the restaurant recommendations and loved them! Moss Glen Falls and Warren Cascades were beautiful. We will be back, maybe next time in the summer!

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful cabin, inside and out! We were lucky enough to have beautiful Fall days and could hike, sit on the porch, (love the hammock chair!) enjoy the hot tub and take in the scenery. The inside was extremely comfortable and has all you need. The hosts have put together a great binder with all of the info you need for the area. Would highly recommend.

Perfect peaceful retreat with great access to the Vermont outdoors

  • 4 of 5

Had a fantastic 4 days here - the cabin feels really secluded but still gives great access to all the activities that Vermont has to offer. The home cinema (with awesome surround sound) is great for those quiet nights in. Really cozy and comfortable inside and lovely views from the balcony, with barbeque and hot-tub facilities included. Can't wait to stop in on our next visit to Vermont!

Just a half hour off the interstate and convenient to skiing, hiking, kayaking, relaxing and many other outdoor activities. Enjoy great nearby skiing or stay on the property and have a fun weekend tubing, tubbing and/or snowshoeing through the woods and open fields. In the summer, there are the Farmers Markets in Waitsfield and Rochester, amazing swimming holes, tubing on the rivers, as well as the peace and serenity that comes with being located in the pristine, undeveloped White River Valley.

Other Activities: x-country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding right on the property.

Golf: Sugarbush has a beautiful 18 hole course, while White River Golf Club offers 9 holes at a tremendous value only 15 minutes away.

Ski: Sugarbush and Mad River Glen, two of Vermonts best areas are only 25 minutes away, and Middlebury Snow Bowl, Vermonts best value, is only 15 minutes away.
