About Rik Sassa

I am a stone mason/carpenter/artist that believes in living simply and close nature. I enjoy creating spaces for people to use and demonstrating that living spaces can be beautiful, efficient comfortable and economical to build if you use your imagination and local resources.

Why Rik Sassa chose Pawlet

This property has every thing that I was looking for in a piece of land: various levels, a view, open land and wooded, some huge old trees that give it a feeling of history, water nearby and a rural feeling, and of course- being in Vermont, a state I feel a great connection with.

What makes this cabin unique

The benefits of this property are that it is centrally located, as I have said, 'all roads lead to West Pawlet.....eventually'. It is also private yet easy to access.

Wonderful Cozy Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We came up for an extended weekend, did some skiing and explored the area! The cabin was wonderful. Very cozy, quite unique. I think we had a fire everyday, and there was plenty of wood to use. We were greeted with fresh bread and some treats in the fridge! It was really and excellent stay and we would return.

Unique stay in the best way

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended place to get away. Coming from NYC, Rik's house was the perfect getaway to relax and enjoy the beauty and seclusion his property had to offer. The house itself was amazing. With an original design room to room, the house provided pleasant surprises along with a truly cozy feel. I would stay here again in a heart beat! Thanks Rik

Excellent Excellent Place !

  • 5 of 5

I am still under the spell as I write these words so I apologize if everything I say is actually accurate ;)

we were a large group of energetic friends and never we felt that there was room for everyone to relax. the living room as numerous sittings from which you can choose to look out the window or stare at the fire place (highly addictive).

bedrooms have nice beds and plenty of light comes in, and the bathrooms are all awesome (ahh the jungle bathroom....if you had doubts about your natural instincts, this will unleash your inner Tarzan instantly)

the kitchen is well stocked with about 6 cast iron pans of all sizes, cook anything in these you will feel like a Michelin 3 star chef.

bottom line, we had fun, we played games, we relaxed, we're bummed to go home, give you enough smile to go through a monday at the office.

Renewing and Refreshing Extended Weekend Experience

  • 5 of 5

Let me just start off by saying that the home we rented was amazing! It was such a unique and one-of-a-kind property - like something out of a magazine. It was rustic and beautiful but at the same time had all the modern amenities. The property was beautiful as well and we had such a good time sledding down the hill in the back - we felt like kids again!

The owner was extremely warm, hospitable and accommodating. He even helped us to get our car up the hill when the weather was bad and we couldn't make it up ourselves. Upon our arrival we were welcomed warmly and he greeted us with the most delicious fresh baked homemade rosemary bread. He provided quite a few things in our fridge as well!

Overall we had an unforgettable experience - a much needed mental detox that took us away from all the stress of daily life. It was everything we needed and more and we cannot wait until we come back and visit in the spring!

Wonderful Stay in West Pawlet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this magical cabin when we came to Vermont this past week for some relaxation and cross country skiing. Our host, Rik, greeted us and immediately made us feel at home. The cabin is the most unique property we have ever stayed at in our many travels, our son loved it too and had fun sledding, Rik even went out of his way to make a sledding trail for him and even invited us to our first ever winter bonfire.

I would heartily recommend this rental property for anyone looking for a really pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable vacation.

Enchanted Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This place is really special, a hand crafted house where every room has creative artist magic woven into the small details. The owner and builder couldn't have been a better host. Warm fresh baked rosemary bread was waiting for us when we arrived, not to mention a fridge filled with almond milk, extra sharp cheddar, orange juice, etc. He also offered to make us a bonfire one night but we were to tired so we had to decline.

This is a four season location, centrally located between five ski areas (two large, Stratton and Killington and three smaller ones, West Mountain, Bromely and Willard Mountain). There is cross country skiing and snow shoeing nearby. In the warmer months, there is trail hiking at Merck Forest Farm Center (along with various homsteading demonstrations and workshops on different weekends). There are a few mountains to hike nearby for views of surrounding towns and area (1 to 2 hour hikes). Many biking opportunities around, including a tandem bike here that is at your disposal. There is a 30 mile converted rail trail at the bottom of the driveway for biking, walking, horsebackriding and snowmobiling. Fishing on the Famous Mettowee and Battenkill rivers (canoeing/tubing as well). Dive into history and swim at the Old Dorset Marble Quarry, there is also a playhouse and an 18 hole golf course/tennis, along with fine dining in Historic Dorset (15 mins away), Saratoga is an hour away with Racetrack/Casino, shopping, dining, music and arts. Water slide, tree-top adventure course and zip line at two ski resorts in summer. Beautiful Lake St. Catherine (15 mins away), Lake Bomoseen (35 mins away) and big Lake George (45 mins away) all have boating, water skiing while Lake George has golf, mini golf, dining, malls, and Great Escape amusement park/ water park. Locally there are numerous farmers markets, yard sales, and antiquing options around. Natural Vermont provides streams to peruse, birds to watch, hunting in hunting season and mid Sept. to mid Oct. is foliage season when the hills burst into oranges, reds and yellows. Sightseeing all around, but if all this activity seems too much and what is really needed is a break from activity, then grab a cold drink and relax on the porch swing or hammock and enjoy the sunset while listening to the great horned owls, then come inside for a nice romantic evening in front of the fire.
