Description

The space

The Bunkhouse is a great place for you to come and enjoy a Vermont vacation. The cozy, western-themed cabin consists of four comfortable rooms and sleeps up to ten people. It contains a large living room with a couch and a futon, a fully equipped kitchen for all of your cooking and dining needs, the bunk room with six bunks and a double bed, as well as a full bathroom with a stand-up shower. There is a large deck overlooking the pond with a BBQ grill and table and chairs. A nice fire pit awaits you down by the pond.

Guest access

Guests can explore the miles of wilderness trails right from the Bunkhouse doors. We have a large deck to enjoy the view of the pristine pond and cook a BBQ meal on the grill. There's a fire pit down by the pond as well. There are safe accommodations for guests to bring their own horses, up to 10 at a time. Also have a large outdoor riding ring. Ideal for camping with your horse!
The pond is a perfect place to play and have fun in and around! We have Floaties, a floating dock and comfy chairs to relax in and soak up some rays.
In the winter there's plenty of fun to be had, like sledding down the driveway or in our fields. Ice skating on the pond is also a blast.
Located minutes from VAST (public snowmobile trails), bring your snowmobile and ride the beautiful trails of Vermont.

Interaction with guests

Our home and the Bunkhouse are located on the same property that consists of 100 acres. Both dwellings are off the grid, solar powered with a generator for back up on cloudy days. We will be present during your stay and will be sure to give you privacy. Wi-Fi can be used in our driveway or on our closed in porch, as well as the home phone. Sorry there's no cell service or wi-fi- come get away from it all! We have four dogs that live on the property, they usually like to visit the Bunkhouse guests from time to time.

The neighborhood

We are off-the-grid with Solar power and a mile from the nearest year-round neighbor. The Bunkhouse is located in a sparsely populated, mountainous area of Central Vermont. Except for far northeastern Vermont or northern Maine, it doesn't get much more remote than this. This is one of the largest remaining tracts of land in the state with the least number of traveled public roads. This empty land is crisscrossed by endless miles of unmaintained Class 4 town roads and old logging trails, which are perfectly useable for horseback riding, hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. These roads and lands consist of thousands of acres of uninhabited Vermont forest land, all accessible from the Bunkhouse.

Getting around

I'm the winter months, it's is highly recommended that guests have a vehicle with good snow tires and/or four wheel drive. Please inquire further about this.

Despite being in a remote location, the towns of Barre, Montpelier and Bradford are a short drive away where you will find many dining and shopping options. We are about one hour from Burlington, VT International Airport and we can arrange transportation.

Other things to note

-Do NOT trust car GPS like Tom-tom's etc., they do not work and send people way out of the way. We recommend printing directions ahead of time and using cell phone GPS'. Because of our remote location, cell phones should not be relied upon for directions as service is often unavailable. Please inquire about proper directions ahead of time. If you have your phone gps navigating BRFORE you lose service, that usually works.
- Vermont Rooms and Meals Tax of 9% is included in the price.
- There is no Wi-Fi, TV or cell service in the Bunkhouse. We want you to come unplug, relax and enjoy your friend and surroundings! These things can be used from our house however if need be.
- We have four friendly dogs, two horses and a cat who live on the property.
- In the winter, we strongly recommend your vehicle to have 4 wheel drive and/or good tires. We are located in a remote area of Vermont, and winter can be unpredictable.
- Firewood for outside fire pit is provided by us.

Great cabin off the grid! My friends and I stayed here while we were skiing at Sugarbush Mountain (~55 minute drive). Kelly and her boyfriend are super responsive and helpful, they took the time to tow one of our cars out of a snow bank and swiftly fixed a broken window. The location is awesome, I have never seen so many stars in the night sky in my life!

This was a perfect getaway and incredibly private. It was super clean and Matt and Kelly left us a delicious treat. The pictures do not do it justice. Beautiful property! We would definitely return.

We had a very good time at Kelly's place. The location is gorgeous, and the house is well equipped and has an outstanding view on the pond and the surrounding forest. We particularly enjoyed the fireplace by the pond. Kelly is a very friendly host, helpful and responsive. I definitely recommend this place.

Kelly and Matt's cabin was incredible! It's really the perfect spot for a getaway with friends or family to be in the beautiful Vermont mountains. It was the perfect backdrop for me and five of my closest friends for a week reunion. The cabin itself it gorgeous, well kept, clean, cozy and located on the most beautiful piece of land. Kelly and Matt were fantastic hosts, helping us with every part of our trip and incredibly responsive to every detail. This was truly one of the best airbnb experiences I've had to date.

The Bunkhouse was the perfect getaway for us! It was a beautiful space, with a fireplace and an amazing view of the sunrise! No wifi or cell service forced us to have a true and much needed vacation! Kelly and Matt were incredibly kind hosts, we arrived to find a plate of cookies and a walkie talkie with instructions to call up to them if we needed anything at all. They gave us our space but were available to help us with whatever we needed. I forgot an icescraper for my car and Kelly came out and scraped it for me! We stayed at the bunkhouse for a ski trip, and although sugarbush was about an hour drive away, we found it perfect!

I cannot live without my pets, I have four dogs a cat and a horse. I need to get outside everyday and enjoy walking in the woods. One of my greatest passions is training horses and riding out in the forest and exploring new places. I'm pretty social and love my family and friends very much.
This is a new business adventure for my boyfriend, Matt, and I. We're excited to meet new people and welcome them to our slice of Heaven. We think that it doesn't get much better than this.
