The charming rustic cabin at the top of our meadow is available during the summer & autumn months. It has a woodstove for heat on cooler nights, and a quaint outhouse nestled into the trees. There's no running water; it's brought in in jugs for drinking and dishwashing. Bathing is available in the main house. Enjoy the peace and glorious views: not a house in sight, only trees, sky, wildlife and wildflowers. Get away from it all in your own personal retreat location!

Perfect experience. A truly unique place. My girlfriend and I set out to find a "cute" cabin and we got much more than that. We typically like to find new things and avoid staying in the same places twice, but we will likely be coming back for this gem! I don't like long reviews but I must here. The Cabin: The place is straight out of a Robert Frost poem. It's one of the coolest places I've stayed. It's a comfortable cabin with amazing scenery. Only thing in sight is a beautiful meadow, trees and mountain ranges. Behind the cabin is all forest with hiking trails. Authentic Vermont primitive feel which helps make the environment and your company more enjoyable without the distraction of modern technology. The only electricity is battery powered, though the owners did a great job making sure there's enough light. There are really cool gas lanterns in addition to all the battery powered lights. There is a nice kitchen and a stove which we cooked some delicious lamb stew with all locally sourced ingredients. There is a great porch with rocking chairs overlooking the beautiful landscape. Fire pit with plenty of wood stocked. There's a hammock. There are plenty of interesting books. The bed is super comfortable and in it's own cool loft area. I forgot to bring a guitar for the campfire. Of course the cabin is stocked with an acoustic guitar and a mandolin too. Words can't describe how amazing this place is. The owners: The cabin could only be as amazing as it is with the help of some amazing owners. Rich and Aimee are truly amazing. They have an awesome life and are so nice for sharing with us! Rich and I bonded as I have recently taken an interest in bushcraft and he happens to be an avid outdoorsman and survival expert. He even helped me accomplish one of my life's bucket list goals: make a friction fire. After telling him about my past struggles in making fire this way he had me rubbing two sticks together and making fire within minutes. I am ecstatic. He also gave me the wood we used so I can continue to perfect the skill. This was only a fraction of the knowledge I learned. Rich and Aimee are very cultured and knowledgeable on many things. To top it off, Aimee gave us some delicious tea and pears. My girlfriend and I left not only rejuvenated from a relaxing weekend but also feeling rewarded and more knowledgeable than before. I highly recommend staying here, you will not be disappointed.

This was the perfect weekend retreat. My husband and I were looking for a quiet little spot for some R&R in the woods. We were thrilled with our stay! The hosts were so welcoming and hospitable and provided us with everything that we needed. The cabin itself was so comfortable and has a greta personality. We spent most of our time out by the fire or hiking on the local trail networks and would not hesitate to go back in the future. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

This trip was the highlight of my summer! The cabin overlooks a meadow and mountainscape, and it had everything I needed (including a gas stove, several ways of lighting the space without electricity, and plenty of jugs of water). Aimee and Rich were the most generous hosts I've ever met; they even lent me their guitar, offered apples and pears from the land, and Rich showed me some really cool fire-building techniques and hung out by the fire. The stunning green mountains and kind people that Vermont is known for are exactly what you'll find here. Just check with me before you reserve the cabin, because I'm planning on going back soon and I get first dibs (okay, just kidding, but I'm definitely going back)! :)

This is a very cozy cabin tucked in a very cozy place. The cabin space itself is vibrant, clean, and is situated right near some hiking trails through the back woods. Aimee and her husband are very friendly and made sure we had all that we needed. Highly recommended for a wonderful Vermont getaway.

The farm cabin is even more idyllic than we expected. Tucked into the high side of a sloping meadow, the cabin offers spectacular views and great privacy. Showers, ponds, and provided water were on offer for bathing and washing up. The only noises at night are the crickets, raindrops, and occasional fox or coyote. Stargazing and satellite-spotting is grand. The kitchen and bookshelf are well stocked, and the fire pit and hammock are close by, leaving it up to you to decide how you want to Do Nothing. Aimeé & Rich are great, friendly hosts, sharing their space and stories as much or little as you would like. The main house is definitely cushier than the cabin and has a welcoming crowd of ducks. Consider picking up basic provisions (and a couple of bags of ice for the large cooler) *before* you arrive because you probably won't want to leave once you get there.

I spent four lovely nights at the cabin. The cabin is clean, comfortable, and well-equipped. Aimee and Rich are friendly, generous, and attentive hosts—I enjoyed spending time with them and their adorable son. You won't have to pack much to enjoy your stay at the cabin as Aimee and Rich have stocked it with a variety of lamps, candles, and battery powered lights, as well as cooking pots and pans, an ice box, utensils, a propane stove, and even salt and pepper. And a mandolin. And a variety of books to read if it gets rainy. Rich and Aimee also made sure I had enough water in the cabin each day. I enjoyed walking on the trails just behind the cabin, and there are longer trails in the state and national forests a short drive away. I spent evenings around a campfire, and watched a sunset from a nearby overlook a five minute walk from the cabin (the cabin itself has a sunrise view). It is very peaceful and you can enjoy watching wild turkey, deer, and birds from the front porch. Or if that is too much nature for you, I found there was good Verizon reception and the cabin even has a solar panel to recharge batteries.

My husband Rich and I have recently begun homesteading in rural Vermont after many years working in wildlife conservation in Central Africa. He is a wildlife biologist/conservationist and I am a graphic designer, interpreter, and yoga teacher. We love rural Vermont and are delighted to be able to introduce our new son to the wonders of vegetable gardens, fruit picking and ducks.
We also get a huge kick out of hosting guests at our farmhouse or in the retreat cabin in the meadow. Meeting fellow travelers is one of the great joys of living where we do and working with Air B & B. We are generally happiest around a camp fire, in a tent or a canoe, or taking a dip in the duck pond with our lovely boy. We look forward to meeting you soon!
