Get away from it all at this quaint log cabin on the beautiful Sunset Lake in Benson VT

The space

This is truly an escape from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. Two true log cabins set on 2.5 acres of land sitting directly on one of the most serene lakes in Vermont. The lake is stocked with trout and you can go fishing during the warmer months. Have your pick: this lake allows for both motorized and non motorized boating on the lake. The water is clean and clear; you can go swimming in water so clear you can see your toes. Truly a place to unwind from it all.

Tucked away on Lake Sunset, off of a private road, this place is the perfect get away from life's hustle and bustle. Unassuming from the outside, when you get into the cabins you are blown away by the rustic appearance of it all and the comfort of everything. There are 2 cabins and a boat house.

The Bunkhouse has 4 twin-sized bunk beds where you can tuck away the kids while you hang out in the main cabin ( or can host 4 adults) which has 2 bedrooms with full sized beds. Both cabins are self contained with kitchen, full bath (main cabin) and a toilet and shower stall in the bunk house, wood stove in the bunk house and large fireplace in the main cabin.

The price includes rental of the main cabin. For an additional $50 you can also rent the bunk house.

Available to answer questions as needed.

Perfect get away from the city. Truly was an unplug. No cell service until heading back into Orwell proper, and no distracting TV. Even with the rain we encountered, sitting on the back screened porch overlooking the lake was relaxing. Sun cleared up enough that we got to use the two kayaks for a beautiful paddle around the lake. Floors were clean and easily felt fine walking without shoes even though this was a cabin in the woods. From porch you do not see neighbors. Good appliances (stove and laundry). Fireplace was great and picked up wood at the general store. Was a great outing for a couple, but I think we be fun to come back as a share with friends.

We absolutely loved our stay here! The cabin had the most amazing view of the lake which you can view from an enclosed patio as well as a large balcony. It was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need; games, bluetooth speakers, ponchos, flashlights, toiletries, etc. The water was so warm and calm and the kayaks were an amazing bonus! It did get chilly at night and there is only a fireplace to heat up the cabin so I suggest stocking up on plenty of firewood. The host, Sharon, was very kind and attentive and responded quickly to all our messages. I would highly recommend staying here!

We absolutely loved the house and lake. The kayaks we such a nice treat my son and I spent hours floating around the calm waters of lake sunset. It was a very relaxing trip.

Sharon's cabin was the perfect getaway for our family. My kids enjoyed swimming and kayaking in the lake. The water was so calm, and the lake so quiet, that even my seven year old was able to go out himself on a kayak! We are not rugged enough for real camping. Staying in the cabin gave us the feeling of camping out while still having the benefit of a front door to close! The cabin was immaculate and extremely well stocked. The view was beautiful and the screened in porch was a great place to eat dinner without worrying about getting bitten. Thank you Sharon for letting us use your space!

Sharon's cabin is a wonderful place for a few days of vacation isolated in the wood. I found exactly what I was looking for and wasn't disappointed with the cabin and its great location. The cabin is rustic and well equipped with a very nice terrasse overlooking the lake and a direct access to the lake for a swim. The place is very intimate. Great for a couple or a family who'd want to disconnect for a few days from the world! Perhaps one thing that could be improved is the comfort of the bed in the main room upstair. The bed is not really comfortable. Overall, I'd definitely recommend the place and wouldn't hesitate to rent it again.
