About the property

Cozy Vermont Cottage


This cabin is a peaceful hideaway, 8 miles outside of Brattleboro Vermont. Tucked into a wooded cove, a babbling brook will lull you to sleep after a day of biking, hiking, skiing or just plain daydreaming. Two hours from Boston and three hours from New York City.


For guests staying 3 nights or more, I will include a local wine and cheese platter for your arrival!



Classic Vermont cabin with wide-pine floors, post and beam construction, and large deck overlooking stream. King-size bed in cozy bedroom. Cabin is fully equipped with propane and wood heat, hot water, stove, mini-fridge, linens, and all kitchen supplies. Fast and free wireless internet included.


Bike, cross country ski, or hike from cabin. Short walk to historical covered bridge and waterfall. Miles and miles of country roads, trails and meadows to explore.

Downtown Brattleboro offers dinning, art, theater, antique shops, brew pubs and funky thrift stores.


The cabin is situated on a small creek in a private corner of our land. Our home is separated from the cabin by woods. If you wish, we are available to greet you. We can offer lots of great suggestions for outdoor and indoor adventures.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at this cabin! The cabin is adorable, very well kept and has everything you could possibly need! The kitchen was very well stocked with all the supplies for making any meals, including cooking oils and spices. The bed was comfortable and the bedroom was much more spacious than I expected. The only negatives I can think of would be that the couch was very tiny and not the most comfortable and the shower water pressure was a bit weak. Those things were very minor though.

It was very snowy/rainy while we were there so all the roads were extremely muddy but we still enjoyed a walk to the nearby covered bridge. It’s a beautiful spot. We also enjoyed eating at Whetstone Station and Three Stones in Brattleboro. Highly recommend Three Stones! Brattleboro was a very cute town.

The whole trip was very relaxing. We would highly recommend this cabin!

Private snowed-in cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We had the most perfect weekend in this cabin. The privacy was unreal but we could still walk around the area or drives into Brattleboro if we wanted to. Can not recommend highly enough! We would have stayed forever if we could have.

My husband and I came here to get away from the busy day to day life. We absolutely loved this cabin! Lisa really did a spectacular job making us feel welcome. The cabin was neat and clean, and in a wonderful private location!

We will certainly stay here again next year!

Beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our getaway to this quaint cabin! Our hosts respected our privacy and were accommodating about check in and check out times. The cabin is perfect for relaxing and reconnecting - no distractions, small, quiet, with a nice porch and firepit. We enjoyed one night in town in Brattleboro and spent the rest of the time unplugged and unwinding! Thank you, Lisa!
