"Vinola" is charming cabin built in the early 1930's. It underwent a total interior renovation in 2016 and is now the "Cabin in the Woods" you've been looking for! Enjoy an idyllic escape from the city year round. Activities include swimming, fishing, hiking, kayaking or just a cozy snooze with a book on the couch. Top off your stay by trying our traditional wood-fired Finnish sauna. Relax tired muscles and rejuvenate the soul. Check our photos and reviews!

The space
The Top 5 questions we get:
1. Do we need to bring firewood?
You are welcome to collect deadwood from the forest surrounding the cabin for free. We also provide firewood bundles for $3/bundle.
2. Does the cabin have pots and pans and linens?
Yes, the cabin is equipped with everything you need for basic cooking and has linens and towels.
3. Does the sauna work?
Yes! The sauna is available year round.
4. Is the cabin heated?
Yes! The cabin has both propane and electric heat sources to keep you toasty even on the coldest of New England winter days.
5. Is there a grill?
Yes! The cabin has a propane and a charcoal grill. We do not provide charcoal, so bring your own please.


Vinola has one bedroom with a queen bed. The main room has one single bed, a single cot and a queen pull out sofa. The loft has 2 single cots. (The loft is not to be used by small children for safety.) Full kitchen with stove, oven, refrigerator, and microwave. The bathroom has a toilet and shower. There is no TV. (you won't miss it, we promise!) Vinola has a lovely porch on the front and a fire pit and gas and charcoal grills in the back. There are trails in Pachaug and Arcadia management areas that start at the end of the driveway.
The cabin is a not secluded space. From the cabin, you can see our other cabin, a cottage and a few RV's (depends on season and number of guests). Please view ALL the listing photos to get a feel for the layout of the cabin in relation to other buildings.

Where you’ll be

Voluntown, Connecticut, United States

This is a small, rural, lakeside community. There is far more activity on the lake in the summer months and it is very quiet in the winter. We have one neighbor on either side of our 7 acre property and both are rarely occupied summer homes.

I left my 16 year corporate career in the pharma industry in 2016 to becoming a full time AirBnB host. There is nothing I enjoy more than sharing my spaces with my guests and meeting people from all over the world. I get a lot of satisfaction out of providing more than just a place to sleep, but a special experience that my guests will remember.

I also own and instruct at an aerial fitness studio and am an avid Acro Yogi with my husband. I have a zeal for adventure and travel is my greatest indulgence. I'm happy to leave the cities and shopping to the tourists and eat and hike my way on the less beaten path. As an AirBnB guest, I always try to leave the space a bit better than I found it and have been known to clean stove pans or ceiling fans or some other task I know hosts hate to do.

We have two kids, ages 13 and 16, 1 cat, 3 dogs, 3 horses, and 5
ducks.

Our property here on Beach Pond has a long an interesting history and we strive to maintain the vintage summer camp feel that brings back childhood memories of jumping off the dock into the crystal-clear lake water and laughing with family around a campfire.

AirBnB has made the news a lot recently for listings that are managed by a property manager and not actual homes. I manage all my own listings and only hire cleaning help. We have owned our lake house for 19 years (Although it has been in the family since the 60's) We have been doing short term rentals since long before AirBnB existed. My style as an AirBnB host is simple, gracious, and kind. We are all in this together, so let's make the best of it and enjoy the adventure! What I enjoy most about being a host is the continuous improvement process. I love to hear feedback and tweak my listings so they are always the best they can be! My favorite kind of guest is one who appreciates my space, gives me thoughtful suggestions and above all, shows me kindness. I also appreciate guests who see the human side of hosting and know that although I strive for perfection, no one can ever be perfect. Sometimes I miss a crumb on the stove and I never iron my sheets!
