About this listing
Idyllic Vermont, there's something for everyone! Perfect for equine trail riding, with limitless other activities: Hiking, biking, swimming, XC skiing, snowmobiling, sledding. Come relax in our comfortable cabin and get away from it all.
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.
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.
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.
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.

If you have your phone gps navigating BRFORE you lose service, that usually works.

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.
