Cabin Holiday Rental
An off grid cabin in the hills of Vermont with a spectacular view of Camel's Hump. Not for everyone, (no running water or TV, spotty cell service) but if you want quiet, beauty and solitude, this place is for you. A writer-hiker's dream. Come unplug. This one room 20' x 14' cabin is situated on some of the prettiest land Vermont has to offer. Up in the Green Mountains and about 2 miles from the Camel's Hump eastern trail head to the Long Trail, this cabin is a great place to get off line, listen to birds and the wind, write, hike and relax. This place is not for everyone. It is about 8 miles from the nearest town. There is no running water. Water for drinking is provided in 5 gallon jugs with a push dispenser Ergo, there is no shower.

Not for everyone, (no running water or TV, spotty cell service) but if you want quiet, beauty and solitude, this place is for you. A writer-hiker's dream. Come unplug. This one room 20' x 14' cabin is situated on some of the prettiest land Vermont has to offer. Up in the Green Mountains and about 2 miles from the Camel's Hump eastern trail head to the Long Trail, this cabin is a great place to get off line, listen to birds and the wind, write, hike and relax. This place is not for everyone. It is about 8 miles from the nearest town. There is no running water. Water for drinking is provided in 5 gallon jugs with a push dispenser Ergo, there is no shower. However, the Best Western in Waterbury offers day passes for their indoor pool, where you can get a dip and a shower and even a sauna. It's a little pricey. However, I am a member of First in Fitness in Montpelier and Berlin and can offer you a guest pass, good at either location. (Montpelier is a GREAT town!) Berlin has an indoor pool. Electricity is provided by a small solar panel and battery set up. Enough juice is generated for lights and radio. There is a new propane fridge and freezer. Check with us ahead of time, we can let you know what's in the fridge, so you can save some $ (butter, ketchup, coffee, tea..etc) The place is heated by a propane heater (thermostatically controlled) and the stove is gas for cooking. So heat is not a problem if you are out skiing or hiking for the day. There is not a typical sink, so dishes need to be washed in a small tub outside. This is good motivation to keep your dishware use minimalist. There is a composting toilet (but private), so no flushing. Beds are a comfy queen and a twin that folds out from the couch. There is a loft accessible via ladder that is a little snug, but for the right sized person, it's pretty cozy. Once the snow comes, driving up the road to the cabin is not an option. We do keep a path plowed, but be prepared to walk about 1/10th of a mile up the driveway. If you arrive after dark, we strongly suggest flashlight or headlamp. Bring your cross country skis and/or snowshoes.More
