The Space

Alder Brook Cabin is a small rustic lodge on the edge of the woods. It features a single room with attached screened porch, bunks for two, electric lights, a small fridge, coffee maker, microwave and WIFI. Enclosed outdoor hot and cold shower and marine style toilet are located twenty five feet away. The porch is a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee, a glass of wine or tumbler of scotch in the evening. Board games are available. There is a fire pit with benches outside for cozy evenings by the fireside and marshmallow toasting. Firewood is supplied.
This is "Glamping" at its best: almost camping but without the bugs and sleeping on the hard ground! Instead, be close to the outdoors but enjoy fresh flowers, pressed sheets, lush cotton bath linens, and the hottest, strongest shower you've had in years. What more could you ask?
We are ten miles outside of Burlington and four miles out of Essex Junction. Stowe and Ben and Jerry's are a forty minute drive. A multiplex theater, grocery and outlet stores, restaurants and mini golf are all found within a mile of the cabin. Parking is a few feet away onsite and we are on a limited bus route. (no weekend service)
This is a place for folks who want to "rough it" a bit but still maintain some creature comforts. We love it but it's not for everyone. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.(URL HIDDEN)This year the cabin has additional electrical outlets for convenient charging of electronic devices. We're already off to a great season with our usual wonderful late spring weather and lots of new friends visiting the cabin. We're looking forward to meeting and welcoming you to our special little corner of Vermont. See you soon!

Check in time is 4:00pm to 9:00pm only.

Guest Access

The space includes the use of a nearby firepit which is supplied with firewood and kindling as well as the yard and boules court.

Interaction with Guests

We do our best to give guests their privacy but we are available for as much interaction as you would like. The choice is yours.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is a fairly quiet residential area. Behind the cabin is an extensive forested area with a brook.

Getting Around

There is a bus approximately every half hour from 6:00am to 6:00pm on weekdays. The nearest stop is about 200 feet down the street. There is no service on weekends. Schedules are available.

Other Things to Note

We will only accommodate two guests. Please do not bring an extra guest beyond a total of two. We will be unable to accommodate them. With prior arrangement we will accept a small baby with its own sleeping arrangements. We're sorry to have to make this restriction but, the cabin is quite small and the facilities too restrictive for more.

House Rules

Most of all we want you to enjoy yourselves. We ask that you do not have any open flames. If you wish to use a camp stove please ask first. Some evenings in the spring and fall are rather chilly and we will provide an electric heater if it is needed. We also ask that guests keep the sound level low after 10:00 in respect for those who need to sleep. We live on the property and will meet you when you arrive. If we're not right there, the cabin is open and you may go right in and make yourself at home. Check in time is 4:00pm to 9:00pm. After 9:00 pm doors will be locked and there will be no one available to give you admittance. If you must arrive later, please contact us in advance so we can work something out for you. We regret that we can no longer allow pets in the cabin.
