100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Cozy cottage strategically located between Mount Snow (5.8 miles) and Stratton (9 miles.)

Features 3 bedrooms & 2 full baths; open, fully equipped kitchen (w/dishwasher!); bright dinning & living areas (w/propane stove!!); deck with gas BBQ grill AND large fire ring (!!); plus washer/dryer! IMPORTANT: There is NO cable or wi-fi at the house!!

Comfortable, QUIET cottage to UNPLUG - ideal share for friends & couples, or 2 families (BASE PRICE for 4 guests, an added FEE for 5+ guests APPLIES!!)

The space
Lovely, comfortable, well stocked cottage - perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, friends, couples, or families who want to enjoy each other and this amazing region!!

If your family/friends plan to be out and about practicing sports or sightseeing for most of the day (so much fun!!) and are looking for a nice, warm, clean house to relax at night, this is the perfect spot for you! It has an open kitchen design which allows for everyone's interaction, but also 3 separate bedrooms/2 full baths for everyone's comfort and privacy. It hosts 6 adults (+2 if sleeping on air mattress/sofa bed), or 3 couples, OR two families with YOUNG children (Note: the cottage is NOT suitable for two families with active older kids/teenagers!!)

** !!! ** PLEASE READ and UNDERSTAND PRICE/FEE POLICY (and "other things to note" below): in order to allow fair, proportional pricing, this house is priced at a BASE occupancy of 4 people and ADDITIONAL FEES WILL APPLY for the 5th guest and beyond - number of guests stated in reservation request MUST BE ACCURATE for correct pricing to be provided/display in app/reservation total!! (Our fees are extremely reasonable, please respect our business - thank you!)

The house has an outdoor deck supplied with a gas BBQ grill, (propane tank already provided for you!!) AND a large metal fire ring surrounded with 4 chairs and a bench for all to gather ‘round!!

House is easily accessible through paved highways and roads, yet private (note: 4WD/4x4 cars highly recommended for Winter stays!) Enjoy a day of adventure, then come home to cozy up by the fire and relax! The kids can play (or sled in Winter!!) right out the door at the large, open grassy front and backyards! A short walk or drive will get you to anything you might need! (And, if not, ask us and we will help!!)

The house has a propane stove in the living area and is supplied with a thoughtful selection of books, games and activities for all ages. A mix of wooded areas and grassy fields allows for plenty of outdoor exploration space for young children to run about. In addition to all the options you have to explore inside and outside the cottage, we also provide personalized guided activities and craft kits!! We offer many options of customized family enrichment, crafts, and educational activities for an additional fee. Please let us know how we can help you have the greatest possible experience!! (Please inquire ahead for further details.)

** !!! ** Please, PLEASE, note: this is a place to practice outdoor sports, enjoy Nature, be creative, and UNPLUG - we love it and care for it as a RETREAT. The cottage does NOT have any modern entertainment systems or wifi - NO cable tv, internet, or modern game consoles of any kind are present. This is a CONSCIOUS DECISION we have made as a goal for the cottage to be a family and friends' "recharging place" (and keep price more affordable.) Our only [reluctant] compromise is to provide a small tv (screen ONLY - no connections) so that those guests who wish to bring their own system, can do so. (We have also recently added a DVD player, but there are no movies stocked at the house - BYO movies or use the "Red Box" rental machine 15 minutes away.) Before you decide one way or another, please make sure to COMPLETELY READ "other things to note" below (including limited cell reception for certain carriers in the area!!)

If you are up for the challenge of disconnecting from your electronic devices, we guarantee you will be very comfortable!! All beds are fitted with good quality sheets and oversized soft blankets; towels are fluffy and there are plenty of them! Kitchen is fully stocked (with dishwasher!) and basic items are supplied including some toiletries, coffee & tea, condiments and a few cooking spices. As a convenience to our guests and as part of our regional community support, we also offer a few gift/farm items and groceries/snacks for sale. That way, our guests have all they need "right there" and can just relax and enjoy their vacation!

** !! ** You should know that the overall property is a small homestead and is also home to SEVERAL quails, chickens (including MANY ROOSTERS!!!!), goats, and 5 dogs (yes, 5!!! They keep predators away from our chickens!) All animals are secured and do not trespass into the cottage's private area (well... the chickens may...!!) All large animals are housed at least 100 feet away from the cottage, but you may indeed hear the eventual bark or crowing... We do not believe the animals to be at all disruptive; much on the contrary, we are of the opinion they add charm and character to our guests' visit if you are welcoming to the experience! (Guests are allowed to respectfully visit the animals from outside their enclosures and we will also facilitate petting visits if of interest to visitors.)

We aim to customize the cottage with age/guest appropriate items - please let us know the profile of your party/the number and age of the children visiting!! We like to PERSONALLY WELCOME each arrival and will likely meet you at check in - please let us know if your plans or members of your party change in any way so we can properly prepare the house and to greet you accordingly. After your "house tour", we will fully respect your privacy, but we are readily available by phone or in person should you need us!

Lastly, a friendly note towards larger families: we want families to be able to afford great vacations and spend memorable time together - if you have a family with 2 adults and 3 children (12yo or younger) AND you are NOT sharing the house with other adults, we will refund you the extra person's daily fee for the fifth member (the 3rd child.) Note: This discount applies solely towards an extra youth member and the family will have use of the two queen bedrooms, but not the small bedroom at ground level. Refund is for the extra person's daily fee ONLY - we are unable to refund related AirBnB fees and/or taxes!

Where you’ll be

Wardsboro, Vermont, United States

We are located at the border of [West] Wardsboro. A convenience store is established a "couple of blocks" across the road from our property (walking distance if you brave the cold!!) Several other businesses are accessible at downtown Wardsboro or Dover (10-15 min drive) and a larger commercial zone area (chain supermarket, drugstore, etc) is located in Wilmington (20-25 min drive.)

Most people driving up from NYC, New Jersey, Westchester, or Fairfield Counties will drive by Wilmington on their way North - we recommend you stock up at that point and then top up your groceries' supply locally. We offer some snacks and basic groceries for sale to our guests as a convenience service, if you would like more information about that, please send us a note.
