About This Listing
Nestled in the hilled forest behind our home, the Vermont Tree Cabin is a great, quiet place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. While lounging on the deck or hot tub, you will be able to enjoy the calm and serenity of the outdoors, but still have the comfort of home in our authentic cabin lodging.
Built in 2004, the cabin was temporally used as a home for our family while we built our house. The cabin has been completely renovated with custom tile shower, rustic hickory floors, knotty pine walls/ceiling, a kitchen area including a sink, small refrigerator, microwave, waffle maker, coffee maker, HD TV, DVD player with small selection of movies, good cell service (ATT & Verizon), 500 gallon custom cedar hot tub, Wireless internet, gas grill, rock fire-pit, picnic table and a 250 sq. ft. deck that is built into and around oak trees.
One of our greatest amenities of the cabin is the custom built, white cedar hot tub. Maintained at 100- 104F degrees, the hot tub is ready for your use all year round, 24 hours a day; all you need to do is slide the cover off, relax and enjoy. While relaxing in the tub, be sure to enjoy watching the flames of a fire from the fire pit right off the deck.
Our other amenities and services are as follows:
Bedding – One full size memory foam bed and one single cot that can be included upon request.
Food – Coffee, tea, waffle mix (make your own), Vermont maple syrup and instant hot cereal included
Parking – private driveway and parking area for cabin guests.
The cabin is completely insulated and heated, so we invite you to enjoy it any time of the year.
Maid service - We do not provide turn down service or housekeeping in the cabin during your visit, but will make adjustments upon request.
As we are located in the North East Kingdom of Vermont, the area offers many activities and events for your enjoyment. Our area is well known for some of our Ski Mountains and Resorts including Burke Mountain and Jay Peak. There are many other outdoor activities including boating and paddling, fishing, hiking, snowmobiling, etc. But don’t forget to check out some of Vermont’s well-known covered bridges, sugarhouses, breweries, and farms (website hidden), It’s great exercise walking from the parking area to the cabin. It’s only 150 feet away but a beautiful uphill stroll on a mix of well-lit paths and stairs.

Andrew's tree cabin is a work of art. The handmade swing chair and wood paneled hot tub really made us feel at one with forest, while totally relaxed and comfortable. The cabin's interior is beautiful as well with a natural feel. The hosts are very friendly and helpful but not imposing at all. They left the mini fridge stocked with ingredients for us to make waffles in the morning- yum! We really enjoyed our stay here and can't wait to see the new tree cabins Andrew is building!
Our stay was amazing. Andrew and Mariolou were excellent hosts (friendly and thoughtful) and made sure that everything was perfect for us. The cabin was beautiful and the hotub and surroundings were breathtaking. Thank you!
Our stay at the tree cabin was excellent. Marilou and Andrew are attentive and very kind. The cabin is lovely and very clean. Our stay was definitely everything we hoped. We would highly recommend staying here!
Such a perfect getaway!! Exactly what we needed. Andrew was a great host, he brought us right up and gave us the grand tour and even recommend some good local hiking trails. The hot tub and fire pit combo was great. So nice being able to watch a beautful sunset from a nice hot tub and enjoy a Fire at the same time. I will definitely recommend the cabin to friends and family. All in all a great experience
Andrew and Marilou's tree cabin was exactly as described -- a gorgeous, green and woody retreat that felt private and convivial all at once. Would be thrilled to return!
Had a great time at the Tree Cabin! It was a great place to our 12th wedding anniversary. Very romantic setting. Sitting on the deck watching the sunset was awesome. We arrived a little later than expected and Andrew was very cool about it. It's a bit of a climb to the house so if you have a lot of luggage and are out of shape like me be warned! Well worth the climb though. We would love to go back sometime.
