About B. Hennelly

This enchanting cabin is used primarily as a family vacation home for us and extended family and friends. It is only available for limited periods when we can't make the trip.

B. Hennelly purchased this cabin in 2013

Why B. Hennelly chose Vermont

The SLL is our antidote to an over scheduled life filled with needless 'stuff' and 'to do' lists. Surrounded by natural sounds of birds chirping and leaves rustling, we are quickly reminded to relax. It's ironic how the simplicity of the place (almost 35 years old) is what newer homes are being remodeled to look like!!! This wholesome environment doesn't have a sub-zero frig or central air... So if you want those things, it's best to look elsewhere. Our cabin is a tangible reminder of what we think really matters in a home... comfort, natural beauty, and each other.

The cabin is very warm and amazingly sunny in the winter when the surrounding trees are bare and let in the sun from the numerous windows and skylights. In summer, those same trees, fully filled with leaves, provide a buffer from the sun and keep the cabin cool and fresh.

What makes this cabin unique

Please note that this vacation home was purchased in late 2013, so some enhancements are still in the works for the outside. Landscaping was delayed because of the rainy Vermont spring but should be completed shortly.

Cutest. Cabin. EVER!

  • 5 of 5

An adorable, exquisite spot to spend the holidays. Super comfy for us, our three kids and the grandparents. Stocked with everything we needed. Fantastic location minutes from Manchester Center, outlets, Bromley and Stratton. The owner and caretaker were easy to deal with and very accommodating. Overall, the perfect cabin for our mini-vacation. We would certainly return!

Little piece of heaven in Vermont

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is picture postcard, perfect for a pre Xmas break. It's excellently set up and, despite temperatures down to 0F, kept us warm and toasty. The organisation was spot on, with Bobbi and Cam v helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this if you are looking for a rustic retreat.

Don't hesitate on this Wonderful Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My family (with 4 of our children, ages 5-11) had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful cabin earlier this month. There was so much to do in the area – all within 20 minutes of the cabin, but even if you wanted to just get away from it all, this piece of paradise provides the perfect setting.

The house, an older log cabin with all its charm, is immaculate and well-appointed with just about everything necessary for a perfect getaway. The kitchen is open to the eating area and family room for family bonding. We were delightfully surprised when we walked in to find the kitchen table elegantly set, as if someone were expecting us. In fact, the décor and comfortable feeling of the entire home welcomes you like a warm hug from the owner. It feels very much like a home away from home – the kind you wish you owned yourself.

Off the family room was a short hall with a full bath, laundry room/storage closet, a bunk bed room (4 beds total), and queen bedroom. Upstairs, the master bedroom is perched among the trees with windows on 3 sides (very private but also open to the treetops and sky, so you feel like you’re in a majestic treehouse). The king size master also has a full bath. All the mattresses were very comfortable; we all had great sleeps and woke up refreshed.

I would recommend this charming cabin to just about anyone. It is ideally setup for a larger family like ours, but is also suited for a couple families getting together or a group of friends looking to getaway.

About the area: Check out Dorset Quarry; Hiking (we did the Lye Brook Falls and a pond at the base of Mt. Equinox); Outlets (Orvis does fly fishing lessons); Hildene (Robert Todd Lincoln’s estate). I think Bromley is the nearest ski mountain - we’d love to return to this cabin in the winter time to experience another season there. I’d imagine it would also be a perfect getaway during foliage season!

The owner, Bobbie, has a true gift of hospitality, which combined with her interior design skills, truly make this the "picture perfect Vermont Log Cabin".

In case you couldn’t tell, we loved the cabin and highly recommend it!

Simply Wonderful - Peaceful, beautiful and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here during the VT Horse Show. Barbara was a wonderful host - sweet and very accommodating to any and all requests. The master bed was incredibly comfortable - as was the rest of the lodge!! - as we slept better than we have in ages. We're hoping to be able to come back in 2016 - but if not, whomever rents will have a fantastic time i'm sure!! Thank you for sharing your fabulous home with our family.

Car: recommended

Location, location, location. Come for its proximity to ski areas; come back for its convenience to Manchester Center's great amenities including top notch restaurants, outlet shopping, Emerald Lake state park, movie theater, glass making, hiking, horseback riding, ice skating, the Equinox spa, the Northshire Book store, and so much more. This cozy yet spacious log cabin is right out of a John Wayne movie! Authentic, rustic details combined with today's modern conveniences make this the perfect family getaway or romantic retreat. For nature lover's only. The unspoiled forested property attracts many birds, deer and chipmunks....just the way nature intended and the way we like it!
