Theo's place was exactly what we were looking for. If you're looking for a secluded, quiet spot in the middle of the woods, look no further!

Theo was a great host! He met us when we arrived even though it was 9:30pm and really cold. He was friendly and offered suggestions on where to go while we were there. The place was just what we wanted it to be for a little weekend getaway.

Theo's cabin is a very cute, rustic cabin that was great for a short weekend getaway. It is also a short drive from Brattleboro which is a great place to spend the day. Overall a great experience staying in Theo's cabin!

Great cozy cabin -- was exactly as advertised. We appreciated how beautiful it was outside, fall was a great time to be there.

Theo's cabin is great! It has a great location, hidden in the woods, but still close to Brattlebro, where there are plenty of things to do. The cabin is close to Theo's house, but the forest still makes it feel isolated. Theo called us to coordinate arrival time and was there to receive us. The space and water heater worked great (it gets chilly!), and the bed was pretty comfortable. Stairs to the second floor are tight so don't bring big bags! Overall this place was great and we would definitely stay there again!

I am an avid traveler having bicycled throughout the USA, Australia & New Zealand, camping as I went, growing sprouts and sourdough starter on the back of my bicycle.
This apartment, house, cottage & greenhouse I built entirely by myself. I love doing various projects most dealing with sustainable living and alternative energy. I consider myself a carpenter / artisan, making furniture and art from found materials.
I love living in the serenity of the woods, I know you will too.
