The SpaceThe Cabin - The cabin is made of full-scribed (Swedish Cope) white pine logs, 12 to 14 inches in diameter. The building is 16x18 feet with a 6 foot covered porch. The roof and sub floor are fully insulated with recycled fibers and the floors are planked with rough-sawn 2-inch-thick hemlock. Inside, there is a hand-crafted bunk bed, an antique table, chairs and a wood-fired cylinder stove with oven and side-mounted hot-water tank.
The Land - The cabin comes with 175 acres of pristine Vermont forest populated with old-growth trees, well-defined trails, moss covered rocks and ledges, deep valley bogs, elevated hilltops and three large ponds. The cabin is located next to one of the ponds.
The Ponds - The ponds cascade one to the other and are supplied by cool mountain springs located on the property. Each pond is suitable for swimming, kayaking, canoeing and fishing. Together they attract and support an abundance of wildlife including duck, owl, deer and black bear. They are surrounded by hiking trails and have multiple access points, including a 30-foot rope swing next to the cabin. Guest AccessThe Access - The entrance to the property is at the south end marked by a green gate with combination lock. This is where the town dirt road ends. From here, a private woods road leads north 3/4 of a mile to the ponds and cabin. In Spring, Summer and Fall, it is suitable for a cars with some clearance (not sports cars) or four wheel drive. In Winter, it is snow-packed and requires snow shoes, cross-coutry skis or a snowmobile. It is also on the V.A.S.T. network. The town plows to a point just shy of the gate with room to park. Other Things to NoteWhat to Bring - Towels, sleeping bags (or sheets and blankets), drinking water, food, cooler and gear to hike, mountain bike, swim, fish, kayak, ski, snowshoe, snowmobile or hunt (according to season and with a Vermont license).
