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.

Cozy, homey, private retreat

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriend and I were looking for a quiet get away in vermont and this place was definately a fantastic choice on our part. It's an adorable size; very small but that only adds to the aesthetic. It gives off a "grandmas cottage" type of feel, welcoming you with the warm scent of organic soaps, oven cooking and mellow, mountain pawn decore.

The owner is also appeared to be a very sweet, genuine woman. I never formally met her, but she spoke very politely and deliberately went out of her way to assure we would have a wonderful stay there whilst also assuring our privacy.

Over all this cabin was just what we were looking for and more; the only thing negative i can gather from my stay was that the hot water heater was incredibly small and made showering a challenge (especially when the knobs are both confusing/unreliable). The stove also only has one setting for its temperature (its pretty old). These two problems, however, are legitimately it though. The host provided all the firewood you need, soaps and shampoos, bath robes, tools such as an axe/snow shovel, candles for dinner, full cooking utensils, an assortment of teas, a long list of places to go or things to do nearby, places to eat, and offered discounts for multiple things.

I hightly recommend this cabin; 10/10 its got a kind size bed with memory foam, what more do you want

Introvert's dream

  • 4 of 5

Had a pleasant stay at this cozy cottage. Quite unique little cabin, loved the privacy, you can drive in and out and not have to face the owners if you don't want to. The space is just enough for 2 people, loved the bedroom which takes up the entire upper floor - kinda steep staircase, but loved the hand-carved guard rail, without that baby it would be a tad treacherous, but adventurous nonetheless. No TV, which was nice, actually. But great Wi-Fi. No A/C, but they graciously provided a fan. The front deck is really cool too, we had most of our meals there, with nothing but nature surrounding. OK - The Number One coolest thing about our stay was the owner's text back to me on our last morning (which was Sunday, we just stayed the weekend) saying 'feel free to stay the day' -- RU kidding? No one has ever done that for me and my wife before -- thanks! That allowed us to head into town to find a church after a lazy sleepy morning, then we rode our bikes on this nice river trail, came back, had a late lunch, then eventually left (reluctantly!). Brattleboro is actually a pretty quaint little place. Lots of kayaking to do, plus hiking trails (we visited the Retreat farm trails). Nightlife ain't bad either, great restaurants. So, the cabin was great, had a nice fire pit too, but we just were too lazy. And, it's just as the title implies, well done.

Great little cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 4 nights in this cozy little cabin. We found it to be very quaint and perfect for our needs. It was as described and clean. We were visiting Vermont for our first wedding anniversary. We found it to be very cozy. It had every thing we needed (comfortable bed, shower with hot water, small refrig and small stove). We enjoyed setting out on the deck. We used it as home base as we explored Vermont and Mass. Brattleboro is a nearby town that has plenty of restaurants and other stores. Lisa the owner checked on us by email but was not intrusive. Would definitely go back and recommend it to anyone looking for a quite place to get away.

Great Cabin

Had a wonderful time at the cabin. It was cozy & had everything I needed. Wanted a place to get away to relax and this was just the spot. The location was convenient to visit Brattleboro and other towns in the area. I would certainly come back.

Wonderful, just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

It's a lovely little cabin. Overall very clean and equipped with everything we needed. There's pots and pans to cook something, a couch in front of the fireplace and a large comfy bed.

We were really happy.
