A one-room Vermont mountain Cabin one mile to picturesque Belmont Village and Star Lake, and 6 miles to Okemo Resort and Ludlow. Enjoy this guest cabin on a knoll above our home, with a deck overlooking Star Lake, meadows, mountain vistas and spectacular sunsets. Sleeps 1 or 2 guests (Queen); completely renovated with new, modern kitchenette and bath. A beautiful mountain get-away, yet close to activities.

Nearby to mountain lakes - swim, fish, boat rentals. Central to sightseeing, golf, tennis, horseback riding, hiking, biking; near historic Weston Playhouse and Weston Priory. Surrounded by Vermont forests and autumn foliage.

We are in the heart of the Green Mountains between Killington and Stratton/Bromley. We have beautiful (spectacular!!) views off to the west and northwest (great sunsets). The cabin sits on a hill, at the edge of a pasture, at 2100 feet above sea level and overlooks a lake and mountains beyond. We are one mile from Star Lake which has a beach and boat access.

Share our corner of Vermont paradise, surrounded by 180 acres of our land, and hundreds more acres of friends, family and the State of Vermont. We have our own trail network for hiking, and there's lots of other hiking all around the town and local area. On our land across the road from the cabin there are four beaver ponds that string along a brook that runs into Star Lake.

Although nestled away in the hills of Vermont, our cabin is in the heart of the Vermont ski and tourist area so there are lots of restaurants, shops, and activities within 5 to 10 miles.

NO SMOKING

DOGS allowed with permission; please inquire when booking.

(sorry, NO CATS)

NOTE – no TV, so enjoy a real get-away vacation :) ... tho the cabin does have hi-speed internet :):) and a radio/CD player.

Available late April thru October

For WINTER rentals see our ski cottage, VRBO #71156, or call/email for more info.

About The Owner

My wife and I are retired and live full time in Belmont. This guest cabin sits on a knoll above our house. Come visit us in our little corner of paradise :)

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2004

Why The Owner chose Okemo

Ron's family began coming to Belmont for summers in 1956 and his parents moved here full-time from New York City in 1970. As a teenager Ron worked on a local farm and the family came up to Belmont for every vacation, all year 'round. Ron and Dottie moved here full-time in 2001 and enjoy all of Vermont's seasons -- You will too :)

What makes this cabin unique

We are in the heart of the Green Mountains between Killington and Stratton/Bromley, and minutes to Okemo. We have beautiful (spectacular!!) views off to the west and northwest (great sunsets). Our cabin sits on a knoll at 2100 feet above sea level and overlooks a lake with a 75 mile view across the mountains of Vermont and into New York State (we see the highest mountain in NY). We are one mile from Star Lake which has a beach and boat access. The cabin is very private being surrounded by 180 acres of our land, and hundreds more acres of friends, family and the State of Vermont. We have our own trail network for hiking, snowshoeing and xc skiing, and there's lots of other hiking all around the town and local area. On our land across the road from the cottage there are four beaver ponds that string along a brook that runs into Star Lake.

..... and we have a moose that visits every now and then [EMAIL us for this picture and many others].

Although private, this cabin is in the heart of the Vermont ski and tourist area so there are lots of restaurants, shops, and activities within 5 to 10 miles (Mt. Holly, Ludlow, Weston, etc.)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks again, Ron. It was a pleasure meeting you. I had a wonderful time there in your neck of the woods... one of the best weeks of my life... really!

Please keep me updated on things. I believe I would like to book again next year. Maybe for two-three weeks this time. (Mid Sept to mid Oct., perhaps).

Thanks,
Oct 2006

Serenity with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! We definetly would book again. Clean and charming cabin with wrap around deck. Ron and Dottie were great hosts - available, friendly but also unobtrusive. On same road as cabin is Plew Farm which has a farmstand and Crowley Cheese Factory established in 1828. The bed is very comfortable, water pressure and temperature of shower perfect, and walking up hill behind cabin with our dog in the mornings great way to start the day. Nearby Ludlow has grocery store, laundry mat, restaurants, bakery, and shops. There is a close by hike up Ludlow Mountain. We recommend Tacos Tacos and Sweet Surrender Bakery in Ludlow. Thanks Ron and Dottie! We want to come back.

Cabin was cute and in beautiful location.

  • 4 of 5

Hosts, Dottie and Ron, we're always ready to help but not intrusive. Only problem was something no one could control...heat wave that also ruined fall colors. Would certainly recommend a stay in this lovely cabin in the woods.

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

It is a lovely cabin with a great deck with beautiful views of the mountains and the sunset. It is very peaceful and relaxing! I can't say enough good things. Ron & Dottie leave a book with great information about the area and if you need anything they are very helpful! Wonderful!

Cozy cabin, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We got married last weekend and needed a few days off the grid to ourselves. This was a beautiful escape to unplug and relax! Also close to Okemo, where we hiked and mountain biked! Tons of great restaurants to try and a grill on the deck if you want to stay in. Very comfortable stay, and the owners were very kind and welcoming! Thank you!

An Amazing view with cozy comfy feel

  • 5 of 5

The lovely view of the lake and mountains could be seen from the deck or inside the cottage. Our dog enjoyed the enclosed deck. We enjoyed not having to worry about him. The kitchen had every thing we needed. We prepared breakfast each morning and a couple of dinners. The little towns around are picturesque. This was a totally CHILL vacation. Would highly recommend this location

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

Ron and Dottie's guest cabin was a great fit for the two of us and our trail dog to visit VT for the week. The cabin is comfortable, welcoming, and thoughtfully equipped with all we needed to prepare meals. The bed is very comfortable, and the deck is spacious and a great place to relax and enjoy the sunsets. Ron and Dottie are accommodating and responsive, but also very respectful of space and privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and really can not wait to return! Kelly and Bill
