I used to think that it was just me: I had a soft spot for our cabin because I fell in love with Fred there. But now that many Airbnb guests enjoy the cottage as much as we do, I believe it. It's a sweet place to experience simple, rustic living - and loving too! Please click on "Read More" for my approach to Covid 19 Hosting.

The space
Our cottage is a private, separate building in a quiet rural setting - located in the back yard of our home. It is a two story building with open rooms, full kitchen and bath - a little on the creative side but clean and everything works! The claw foot tub and steps in the bathroom require guests to be steady on their feet, as do the stairs to the bedroom, which are pretty steep. A Hearthstone gas fireplace provides radiant heat and ambiance. Free WiFi is included but it is not strong enough a signal for live streaming - (it is strong enough for email and basic web browsing).

Upstairs has a queen bed and a single bed with a single trundle (two singles). Downstairs couch has a double hide-away bed. So, depending on your comfort level with each other and openness, the cottage can sleep a small crowd.

The cottage is totally pet friendly. Your pets are free to roam outside too, based on your comfort level. There is a big yard, woods and fields right outside the door. We also have a very friendly dog and a cat and chickens (that are in a fence). We do charge a $25 per pet fee, which we will have to add to your rate after you make the reservation.

Walking and Cross country ski and snowshoe trails are right out the door. We have a little map to get your oriented. We are just a few minutes from Green River Reservoir State Park - an absolutely gorgeous area! Morrisville is just five minutes away - a good sized town with Hannafords, a great Natural Foods Coop (called 'MoCo' for Morrisville Coop) a 24 hour Price Chopper 3 Pharmacies (CVS, Kinney's and Brooks), Dunkin Donuts, McDonald's about 5 Chinese Restaurants, a 4-Plex Movie Theater, and Mobile Station and a few good places to eat and enjoy live music (see my guide book below) We are 20 minutes from Stowe, Hardwick, Craftsbury and Johnson. Stowe Mountain, Jay Peak and Smuggler's Notch Ski Areas all easy drives. 20 minutes via back road to Craftsbury Touring Center. We love our land and our home and love to share it!

COVID 19 Precautions: I have chosen to keep my Airbnb open during this time with some essential changes detailed below. I believe fresh air and the healing balm of Nature is essential for our well-being as a species, especially now! I am committed to high standards of protecting everyone who enters the Dream Haven Cabin, including me. Before you arrive, I want you to know a few things about how I am going about this.

1) I implore all guests to stay home and cancel if you have any symptoms of coughing, fever, etc. If this happens to you, I will personally make sure your deposit is returned to you.

2) In between all guests, I will complete an Ozone treatment that kills off airborne particulates, including most viruses and bacteria. I will sanitize faucets, doorknobs and all fixtures and appliances where hands are likely to touch. Although I do use some bleach and rubbing alcohol, I also use essential oils and good cleaning techniques. (I ran a cleaning company for 8 years. Once a professional cleaner, always.)

3) If I am home when you arrive, I will practice social distancing and offer a few points of orientation from the driveway. I will not enter the cabin with you, even if you are here for the first time. For this reason, I strongly encourage you to read the complete guide here, before you arrive. There is a notebook on the kitchen table with detailed information and a map of walking/skiing trails. You can reach me by text with any questions while you are here.

4) All guests are asked to follow a few steps before departure. (stripping beds, turning down heat etc) A checklist will be on the kitchen table.

5) Due to the increased time and resources necessary for cleaning and sanitizing, I have increased the cleaning fee from $60 to $100. Like most people worldwide I am facing significant financial loss due to Covid 19, and trust guests will be supportive of this change.

I have adopted these steps in an effort to mitigate or hopefully eliminate the potential for transmission of the virus. However, I am aware there is still risk involved and expect my guests to understand the same. It is an intense time in human history. I hope that my guests who choose to come to Dream Haven Cabin during this time will find some peace and inner strength for the journey.

Where you’ll be

Hyde Park, Vermont, United States

Our immediate neighborhood is the cabin and our yellow house that share the back yard. Our chickens are in the shed close to the cabin, our bee hives are down below the garden (don't worry - they will NOT bother you). The squirrels, fox, raccoons, deer, mice and occasional bear and moose find their home in the woods and fields nearby. Beyond our homestead, we have the best neighbors Lisa and Mary, just up the hill, through the woods. (Together, we manage the miles of trails we all get to enjoy). Davis Hill Rd is a dead end road with gorgeous views, especially at sunset, and wonderful, friendly neighbors. Green River Reservoir State Park is a three minute drive away or a long walk through the woods. When you stay here, you will understand why we love our home.
