Come savor a secluded escape in the green mountains. Park your car and enjoy a short hike up to your private mountainside retreat. This cozy cabin in the forest is the perfect spot to relax, slow down, and unwind. For adventure seekers, it is the ideal home base. Well maintained hiking trails surround the area. We are minutes from the Long Trail, renowned rock climbing, beautiful swimming holes, kayaking, fishing, golfing, mountain biking, skiing and snowboarding.

The space
Our off the grid tiny house features a (seasonal) solar heated outdoor shower, outhouse, (seasonal) non-potable running water in the kitchen, a propane cook stove, and a wood stove to keep you warm on chilly nights. The wood stove is the only source of heat inside the cabin, so working knowledge of fire-starting is a must! We do not have refrigeration, but provide a cooler for use during your stay. In the cabin you will find plates, cups, bowls, utensils, simple cooking tools, a kettle, a saucepan, a frying pan, a roasting pan, a coffee grinder, a french press, a mixing bowl and a strainer. We also provide bedding and towels.

I follow Airbnb’s enhanced cleaning protocol, which was developed with expert guidance. Here are a few highlights:

I sanitize high-touch surfaces, down to the doorknob
I use cleaners and disinfectants approved by global health agencies, and I wear protective gear to help prevent cross-contamination
I clean each room using extensive cleaning checklists
I provide extra cleaning supplies, so you can clean as you stay
I comply with local laws, including any additional safety or cleaning guidelines

Guest access
The cabin sits on a 20 acre lot that you are welcome to explore. We are adjacent to hundreds of acres of protected forestland with well maintained hiking trails.

Other things to note
The cabin is a short hike from the parking spot. Please be prepared to carry in your belongings and supplies. There is no electricity at the cabin. We have a small solar panel that powers lights in the kitchen. There is no wifi at the cabin. The only source of heat is the wood stove. I will provide firewood, but you should be able to start a fire on your own to stay here in the cooler months. The running water in the sink is not suitable for drinking. There is a spring on the way up to the cabin where you can fill your water bottles. The shower is solar heated, which means the water temperature is dependent on the sun. In freezing temps or times of severe drought, there may not be running water. The solar collector for the shower is disconnected and drained for the winter when temps reach the 30s. The loft is accessed by a vertical ladder attach to the wall. You may choose to sleep on the downstairs futon. The cabin is rustic and items provided are minimal. Please let me know if you have specific needs and I will do my best to accommodate.
