About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

You'll stay in a custom built, finely crafted tiny (384 sf + loft) house with high ceilings, large windows and lots of light, even a cupola. Modeled after a nineteenth century Vermont schoolhouse, the design is true to character - from the exposed beams to the square head nails in wide pine flooring - using the best of modern technology - built green with an on-demand water heater, propane heat and high end finishes with IKEA fixtures in the kitchen and bathroom.
Located on a quiet dirt road in the bucolic town of Cabot, your closest neighbors will be the ravens in the red pines, the chickadees in the cedars and a variety of other woodland creatures. Trails around the property will take you to a swimming pond and, another, to a quiet lake where you’ll have the use of two kayaks. The peace and quiet of Vermont’s rural living will restore your spirit and perhaps inspire you in your creative endeavors. You’ll be near some of Vermont’s best biking, hiking and sightseeing areas where a relaxing lifestyle and splendid green mountain vistas provide a backdrop to charming small towns to explore.
We travel much of the year and may or may not be in residence during your visit.
An upstairs space is accessible by circular stairway. The downstairs has a comfy futon, convertible for comfy sleeping.
You'll love being here if you like exploring Vermont's natural beauty - quiet except for the calls of the ravens, the early morning loon cries (the loon couple, surprisingly, makes occasional fly by) and the rushing wind in the maples.
Step out your back door to a private, expansive yard and enjoy all that Vermont has to offer. (A patio will be ready by early July.)
