Cozy cabin overlooking wildlife pond in a convenient, Saratoga, Vermont, Lake George, but quiet country location.
Rustic, with lovely vintage touches, so warm and inviting! A quiet retreat, tucked in the middle of a beautiful natural setting!
A brand new feature in the rustic cabin! a working, off grid type sink area, with lovely barn wood...enjoy the functional simplicity!
Looking for a respite from the hectic city life, in a peaceful and quiet setting, surrounded by nature, and all of it's glorious wonders!
Perhaps you are looking to spend a romantic weekend getaway...
Maybe you are an artist, writer, musician, and need a place to be inspired...or anyone wishing to just "unplug"!
We all need a place to retreat and connect with nature, and enjoy the beauty, sounds, and smells, to be fully engaged with all of our senses!
A stay in the quaint cabin may be just the place to feeds your soul!
*Winter/mud/early spring season access: Parking is at top of driveway (easy walk), outdoor shower not available. * Being a rustic cabin, one does need to keep the wood stove going. Cabin can get chilly in the coldest of temps. Firewood supply is currently minimal, so please pick up some bundled dry firewood. (Can be bought at the local Stewart's Shop along route, or here in town).
There is no indoor plumbing, but I do supply fresh well water in a water crock and there is a spigot outdoors for re-filling!

** If there is a spice, or anything you need, I am close by, so feel free to ask, and I am more than happy to share what I have!

* You may want to stop and pick up some bundled firewood!
There is a spring fed lake 5 minute drive up the road you can access, for swimming, kayaking, canoeing...
There is a fairly decent signal for att and verizon cell service. I do have internet up at my yurt, if needed.
NOTE: I do have 6
friendly cats that wander the property, and have been in the cabin (in case of allergies), also I have two wandering Guinea Fowl (the clowns)!...that roost
in the tree over the screen porch ( they are quite amusing but can be loud at times, they call them the farmer's watchdogs!
Please don't be alarmed by the occasional presence of flying pests, it is a cabin on wooded country property!
There is an outdoor compost toilet outhouse, privately situated for guests use, complete with an antique stained glass window!
Interaction with Guests
This being my second season as an airbnb host, I must say, I just love meeting all of the wonderful guests that I have been fortunate to share my tranquil, and lovely spot with!
If I am around, I would be more than happy to answer any questions, or give you ideas, and directions to places of interest. Perhaps we can even share in a nice glass of wine! I do live on the property in a yurt as well. I am usually always accessible via text, or phone.
* I totally respect my guests privacy, and need for their "alone" time. Please understand that I do wander through the property, tending to my gardens, etc, but will only socialize with guests, if they so desire!
My neighborhood is a quiet rural spot on a country dirt road with great, but barely ever seen neighbors. Out here everyone is busy tending to their property, be it farm animals, gardening, or just doing all the chores that are required living a rural life! If you listen you can hear the horse whinny at the landowner next door, or the sheep herd (baaa) in the back of the land! The area is teaming with wildlife. At night, the abundance of stars against the dark night sky, will amaze you! Fireflies magically illuminate the summer nights! And when it's the frogs mating season, which are abundant along the ponds edge, their chorus will sing you to sleep!
Great sunsets as well!
I love where I live, when there is something needed the neighbors are always ready and willing to lend a hand! And when we can we get together for some socializing, we all catch up with each others lives. Out here we respect each others privacy, but think nothing of walking up to each others door and saying hello, or asking for a hand!
Rural country life just doesn't support public transportation unfortunately (a downside), but we are not far from many conveniences accessible by car, walk, or get on a bike!
Other Things to Note
I will do everything I can to make your stay comfortable...I supply towels, cotton sheets, flannel in the colder months, and biodegradable natural soap and shampoo for the outdoor shower as well.(Please only use biodegradable/natural products while using shower, as it does drain directly into the ground.)
Also...In the summer, there are plenty of fresh herbs, and mint everywhere for your use. In season, berries as well! I do grow organic vegetables, and am always happy to share in the harvest!
* Minimum stay is 2 nights, but please ask if needing one night...
* * I am also a Reiki practitioner. If interested in booking a session, feel free to contact me to set up an appointment, or any questions you may have!
Makes a wonderful surprise gift as well...
This is a non smoking property
Please do not feed the fish in the pond, or any of the wildlife on the property.
I am passionate in taking care of the land in a sustainable and respectful way, and I ask that you are mindful as well...
I would totally appreciate it if you would separate any recyclables from trash, and if you have vegetable scraps I can compost those as well! There is a ceramic compost pail in the cabin for food scraps (please, no meat, or cheese in compost)!
No pets allowed unless contacting me prior as there are too many other animals here
Also, only toilet paper in the compost toilet outhouse!
Feminine products, etc... there is a trash can in there for disposal. ( I know many are unfamiliar with compost toilets)!
Thank you so much for your consideration!
Victoria is probably the very best host on airbnb and her cabin is absolutely magical. It was my boyfriends birthday the week before we were there and Victoria came to our door with two cupcakes! We have been to the magic cabin (as we call it) twice, once in the summer and once in the snowy winter. Both times were wonderful in totally different ways. The cabin is beautifully decorated and has all the essentials you would need. We can't wait to make a third visit!
We had the most amazing time at the cabin! Can't wait to come back!! It is adorable and has everything you need! There is nothing better than waking up with a toasty fire and a pot of coffee (with the awesome electric kettle and french press!) Victoria is wonderful as well! It was really a pleasure to meet her and get away from the city.
I was looking for a relaxing yet romantic weekend getaway for my boyfriend and me to experience during the holiday madness. Victoria's cabin was exactly that and more. Upon arrival we were greeted by a warm lit fire followed by Victoria introducing herself and telling us everything we needed to know. The cabin couldn't be any cozier, relaxing, and quaint. Considering its December we actually had warm weather during our stay. So we took advantage of both the outhouse and Victorias fully equipped yurt bathroom inside (both which are a few steps from the cabin). All and all my boyfriend and I had an amazing experience escaping the big city. Thank Victoria for being so quick to respond and helpful during our stay. Looking forward to returning.
I had such a great, quite and peaceful experience at Victoria's cabin. Thankful for her accepting my booking in such a short amount of time. I hope to be back for a different season.
What a wonderful getaway from the city! We had the most picturesque experience, tucked inside this gorgeous cabin with a foot of snow. Victoria was very warm and helpful. She started the fire for us (the woodstove was a gem), came out during the storm to check on us and make repairs, and even helped us dig our car out of the driveway. I highly recommend visiting Victoria's place!
We loved our stay at this charming little cabin! Victoria was very welcoming and had the wood stove going for us when we arrived. It was chilly on the nights we were there, but the fire kept us warm and she made sure we had plenty of blankets. The cabin was so cozy and Victoria has done a wonderful job decorating the place. We would love to go back during a warmer season so we can enjoy the outdoor space!
Notre séjour dans la cabane de Victoria fût très agréable. Nous nous sommes sentis comme suspendu dans le temps, déconnecté du reste du monde à profiter de plaisir simple dans le calme et le confort de ce lieu.
