About Mary Ann

We are delighted you are looking at our Hinkley Brook Cabin for your visit to Vermont. We trust you will find our cabin to be truly special. It was built in 2011 by us. Well, with the help of some very special friends (who are real contractors!)

The bulk of the cabin was built with logs from the land, which were milled here in Grafton. We have designed the cabin with the goal of making it a very special get-a-way. We are excited to share it with you.

Mary Ann purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Mary Ann chose Grafton

You will find that you need to bring very little.

The bedrooms are furnished with quality linens and towels are provided. The kitchen is very simple; microwave, convection/toaster oven, electric skillet, crock pot, weber bbq, George Foreman grill, blender, coffee pot. There are terrific restaurants in the area.

You have chosen an area of Vermont that truly is beautiful and special. There is information in the cabin to help you choose your activities as well as provide you with other information to make your stay enjoyable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear MA and B,

We celebrated our 21st anniversary by spending a weekend in the cottage. Thank you so much for all the little touches and for having this weekend getaway cottage. One of the best parts was opening the windows and listening all night to the brook running. Will never forget that.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful getaway at Hinkley Brook Cabin. The cabin had everything we needed plus extra little details that made it extra special. We loved the location of a brook across the street to walk along into town, and to hear at night as we drifted off to sleep. We definitely hope to return in the near future!

Perfect secluded cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I booked this cabin for a quick fall getaway based on the great reviews and we were thrilled with it! The cabin was cute and quaint and perfect for a romantic weekend for two. We were able to walk from the cabin into the adorable town of Grafton, hike in the nearby national park and enjoy a fire in the fire pit at the cabin. We also got to meet the hosts, Bill and Mary Ann and they were wonderful! We loved the hospitality and the gifts of wine, cheese and cookies they left for us. I would highly recommend this cabin and town and hope to visit again!

A secluded dream of a cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I'll start by saying I almost never write reviews. That's just to emphasize how wonderful our experience was. We arrived to a bottle of red wine, a hunk of cheddar, apples and some of the most delicious home made cookies I've had. And then we saw they had even thought of providing cream for our morning coffee! Mary Ann and Bill have done an amazing job with this beautiful little place, the details were just magnificent and well attended to. The setting was magical and there were even a couple of chairs set up next to the creek. We had a hard time deciding where to have our coffee so we just had a few cups! I highly recommend stopping by and saying hi to Mary Ann and Bill as well, the beauty and the wonder of this amazing place is a reflection of these two wonderful people who are enjoying life to its fullest.

Amazing little cabin in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

I was in awe of this cabin from the minute we arrived. Everything was immaculate and so well thought out. The location was amazing, so peaceful and quiet with only the sounds of the birds and the babbling brook. We enjoyed every minute of our stay there and plan to come back next year. I would HIGHLY recommend the Hinkley Brook Cabin to anyone!
