I own another wonderful log cabin just 25 miles north of this gorgeous place! We have been renting it for 13 years. We have many requests every year for a larger rental for larger families and this is it! Join us at our Lodge! Where nature is 'everywhere'

The Owner purchased this lodge in 2014

I have ALWAYS LOVED this part of Vermont! Just gorgeous! And when this opportunity came up to actually be able to buy a place here we were thrilled! With the river just across the road and being near the lake and skiing it was a perfect fit for our large extended family! and the beauty ofr the area plus the Mossalamoo recreational are right there and being so close to Middlebury also made it a perfect fit

When I first drove up my mouth dropped open! It was LOVE at first sight and I had not even entered the house yet! For years I had taken this scenic Route and always thought what a beautiful part of Vermont it was. BUT upon enetring this home my heart started to race! all the gorgeous details and love the builder had poured into this home. The wonderful surprises! like the WATERFALL that drops two floors into the livingroom! and the SECRET ROOM! just to start! It was like walking into my dream vacation home! yet a it is warm inviting and HAPPY. All the windows and light just the FELL made me say YES! And the AREA so beautiful! We feel blessed!

THE PERFECT RENTAL

  • 5 out of 5
I had the opportunity to check out this rental and found it to be the most amazing rental out there. Spacious, you can bring the whole family and not be on top of each other. Wildlife, if you like seeing deer, bear, moose and other wild life this is the place to watch them come down to drink in the river across the street or graze on the lawns. Great place to hold a small wedding, family reunion, weekend get away. There are plenty of places in the house to curl up with a good book, play games with the kids or just get in some relaxation. If you like hiking there are plenty of trails in the National Forest, along the river and in the wooded areas. Skiing is so close to the house as well as great restaurants in the nearby town. I can't wait to go back for another visit and bring my whole family.

AMAZING RENTAL PROPERTY

  • 4 out of 5
What an amazing rental property! This house is to die for and great for family reunions, small weddings, girls weekend or get a few couples together to enjoy some time away. There are so many rooms, nooks and crannies and places to enjoy a quiet moment or full out family fun. I love leaving the windows open and hearing the brook from across the road and curling up with a good book. There is something for everyone here. Since this is a new rental property be one of the first to experience this rental. The house mixes the old with the new and is so comfortable and homey. Call Kris to ask questions and hear all about this wonderful property.

GORGEOUS HOUSE, PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 out of 5
This rental is so much more than the listing can show you. We drove up at night and the house looked amazing lit up from the outside! Inside, we were surprised to find just how large it was and also extremely inviting for it's size! The beds were luxurious and the amenities were just as described. We enjoyed the river across the road for skipping stones with the kids and fishing at the Sugar Hill Reservoir (only 5 minutes down Goshen Road). Driving up scenic RT 125, we discovered the Robert Frost Interpretive Trail (3 minutes away) and Texas Falls (also 5 minutes) - a hiking spot with amazing waterfalls! This home is located perfectly because you are only 5 minutes away from multiple grocery stores, local (delicious!) restaurants and more in downtown Middlebury but you are still situated in the Green Mountain National Forest. We couldn't have been more pleased!! We are planning on returning soon with family - its the perfect rental for a family get together. We also plan to come in the winter for skiing as the miles and miles of cross country and snowshoe trails surround the location as well as the Middlebury Snow Bowl, the perfect size resort for our family! Highly, highly recommend!

River Stone Lodge is just inside the Green Mountain National Forest and near the Moosalamo National Recreation area! 18,000 acres of pure, breathtaking beauty. 70 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails. Located on the most gorgeous scenic VT route 125- a popular route for cyclists. Near everything you'd want for all seasons! Enjoy the sounds of the river right from the house and have fun fishing and/or swimming. Two ski areas within 5 minutes- one downhill and the other cross country. Within 45 minutes of two other major ski areas. Two indoor heated garages PERFECT for skiers/snowboarders who don’t want to have to shovel the car out in the morning!

Many guests will have the chance to see the occasional bear, moose and deer on the property! Biking, motocycle riding, hiking, walking, bird watching, wildlife viewing and more. Located within 5 minutes of Middlebury where local restaurants and shops await you. Convenient location to grocery – conventional and local co-op, restaurants, shopping but still located within the Green Mountain National Forest. We are the perfect distance for a short trip to the cultural Vermont hub of Burlington where you can enjoy more great dining, theatre, tourist attractions and more.

This is the perfect rental for an active family getaway, reunion with friends or just a quiet, luxurious and romantic weekend away. We even can host small events such as weddings. Please inquire!
