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.

Our entire trip to the Vermont Tree Cabin was outstanding. Andrew was very responsive and helpful- especially because we booked it less than a week in advance. The cabin was in excellent condition upon arrival and all the details were thought of! There was extremely fast internet and TV, coffee and tea, as well as all the ingredients for delicious waffles. We more than recommend this location for a vacation!
My boyfriend and I spent 5 days in the treehouse and absolutely loved it there! The treehouse is tucked away in the trees behind Andrew and Marilou's house and very private. Everything was very clean and he had thought of everything we could have possibly needed. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and spent nearly every evening relaxing in the hot tub reading our books. Andrew adjusted the temperature twice for us during our stay. The waffles are absolutely amazing! We both loved the apple ones. Although it was rainy and we didn't get to hike as much as we wanted to, the treehouse is within an hour of plenty of things to do. We took Andrew up on his recommendation to hike Mt. Pisgah and the views are unbelievable. We would both definitely visit again.
Host was lovely. Was there to great us and gave us all the information we needed.
The Tree Cabin was simply a spectacular find. Andrew & Marilou were extremely accommodating to my last minute request and even though I only spent one night there the obsession for the comfort of their guests was obvious. No detail was overlooked from the full menu of toiletries for anything you may have left behind to the fixins for waffles if you so chose. The bed was comfortable and the cabin kept impeccably clean. By far my favorite feature of the cabin was the deck. This outside space was perfectly nestled amongst the trees with a unique glider and sitting room for plenty. The atmosphere was magical especially into the twilight with the lights on; there were even two perfectly spaced trees to sling my hammock up and doze off to sleep. I only had the pleasure of meeting Andrew on my visit but we had a nice long chat and I really enjoyed meeting with him a learning about his family and his life. Overall an A+ Airbnb experience and I will surely be back when I'm in the area again.
Andrew and Marilou's treehouse getaway was amazing. We unfortunately didn't get to meet them but they were beyond accommodating nonetheless and the mystery hosts made it all the more intriguing. What started out as a halfway crash point between massachusetts and our final destination, canada, became the most memorable part of the entire trip. Hot tubs and Belgium waffles will never be the same.
I can not rave enough about our experience at Andrew and Marilou's tree cabin! It was simply perfect! Every detail has been thought of. The hot tub is glorious, the waffle supplies were easy to put together and delicious, and Andrew was so kind and helpful. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. All the stars and thumbs up for this one!
