The Hyggelig Hytte is a one of a kind Nordic inspired cabin and sauna located in the heart of the Green Mountains. 30 mins north of Montpelier deep in the woods. Glamping and leaf peeping fun! Rustic romanic, hobo hideaway, bohemian hermitage, nordic nook.

The space
Inspired by my trip to the Faroe Islands in 2013 and my love of the Viking Age, this is your perfect one of a kind *rustic glamping* experience. This small 12'x12' 144 sq foot Nordic inspired cabin is located ~50 yards behind my house on 11 acres of mixed hardwood and evergreens.

You have your own driveway (until the winter months, then you park in mine), fridge and cookstove. I provide coffee and tea as well as light breakfast foods: granola, oatmeal and fresh eggs and veggies from the garden when I have them. There are dishes, pots and pans in the cabin.

There is a small electric heater for the winter months which gets it plenty cozy.

Your driveway is unmarked and steep, it is located on the same side of the street as my home (1743) to the north (please follow the signs and do not use my neighbors driveways). If you cannot make it up, just park in mine and walk back. You will need snow tires in the winter!

Sleeps 2 adults on a queen size futon.

Here you can enjoy hiking around the woods, picking blackberries and relaxing in Vermont's pristine beauty. Situated 30 min north of Montpelier.

Peaceful, rustic simplicity. Enjoy a fire in your own fire pit and take in the stars! No light pollution. Wild turkeys, bats, hawks, deer, and even black bears are seen in these woods.

Great for couples, writers or backpackers.

*****Wifi is dubious and cell service is a hit or miss. If you have Verizon, you will have much better luck than At&T or Tmobile.****

No indoor plumbing, but a 5 gallon water jug for washing hands/dishes/face etc. There is an outhouse behind the cabin. Showers, laundry and can happen in the main house.

Fire pit and barbecue available for use. I provide wood, but you should bring your own kindling. Gorgeous woods to hike or snowshoe through. I have one pair for you to borrow.

I enjoy meeting new people, but do not need to socialize with you. I understand that people come to get away and I want to honor your privacy. I will let you know my availability if you need help or recommendations for places to visit etc. Depending on the season, you may see me in the backyard.

East Calais is a small town with one gas station/general store a 7 min drive from the cabin, but otherwise, you are out in the woods on dirt roads. We are a 30 min drive from Montpelier, and a 1 hour drive from Stowe and Jay Peak, Sugarbush ski resorts. The village of Plainfield is a 15 minute drive away and has restaurants, bars and some shops etc.

There is no public transport in this part of Vermont. You will need snow tires in the winter and AWD preferably as the cabin is located on dirt roads (thought they are well maintained), but in the summer and fall this is not necessary.

Guest access
No indoor plumbing, but a water 5 gallon system for washing hands/dishes/face and drinking etc. There is an outhouse behind the cabin. Showers, laundry and toilet can be accessed in the back of my house.

The sauna is now available for guests!

Other things to note
The cabin is located about 50 yards behind my home. You have your own driveway and it is one past mine to the north but is unmarked. It is steep and in the winter is not used.

****Please park at the bottom of my driveway in the winter months and walk back. Snow tires and/or AWD are highly recommended in the winter--Please do not attempt to drive up my driveway unless you have AWD and snow tires.

****Guests are responsible for getting themselves towed or removed if they attempt the driveway.****

Hi, My name is Selene and I work in mental health and am a single mother of one amazing boy, a flock of exotic chickens and two very friendly cats. We enjoy the woods, foraging, traveling and learning new skills. I have traveled extensively and have lived abroad and enjoy meeting new people. I love history and all things Scandinavian. If you stay in the cabin you will also have access to 11 acres of woods to explore and hike around on. There is very little light pollution, so the night sky is spectacular and nature is inspiring. Beautiful maple, birch and pine trees all over. There is a fire pit, small barbecue and sauna also available to guests.
