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.

Slice of heaven!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I had a perfect stay at this cabin! It feels very remote but you are only 20 minutes from shopping in Manchester, hiking in the mountains and a large supermarket just over the border in New York.

Rik was the ideal host, welcoming us with a loaf of homemade bread and always being very responsive to any concerns we had (which were almost non-existent).

The cabin itself is truly a beautiful work of art and one of a kind. There were personal touches everywhere and made the experience so much more special than we could have imagined.

We only had the two of us there and enjoyed the many options for place to read or work scattered around the house and property. The best part has to be the fireplace and getting the chance to sit there at night with wine and relax.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough and we already plan on making this an annual trip!

Great Escape!

  • 4 out of 5
Incredible cabin. Rik has done a tremendous job on making this cabin truly unique. Although we arrived late, Rik greeted us with a freshly baked loaf of bread that had been garnished with fresh rosemary.

The cabin is really something!

The views of the mountains are awesome, especially early in the morning when the sun hits the trees. The cabin is full of pleasant architectural surprises, it's almost like a treehouse for adults. You can tell that Rik is very passionate about creating unique spaces, examples of his craftsmanship can be found throughout the cabin. Our dog really enjoyed the fireplace, maybe even more than we did. The cabin was clean and the refrigerator came stocked with the essentials. I won't spoil the surprises by going into too much detail, it's more exciting to discover on your own.

Manchester is only a short drive from the cabin (20-25 minutes) where there is plenty of shopping and dining options. We chose to stay at the cabin and cook our own meals. We will certainly be back! You can't go wrong with this cabin.

Getting Away

  • 4 out of 5
I was so impressed with this house/log cabin. While being quite rustic it was very comfortable and seemed to blend into to surrounding woods Beautifully. There are many very cool touches in this home including a waterfall shower that was incredible. I give both Rick and his property an A+. K

Vermont Cabin

  • 5 out of 5
Very nice cabin. Cozy and comfortable. Very unique artistic elements to this home. The area is very pretty - ranging from forest to farmland. The small area towns were quaint and charming. We will be back.

Wonderful, peaceful retreat

  • 5 out of 5
I hesitate calling this cabin a cabin. It's a work of art. The love and care that went into building it is evident everywhere you look. Rik is a true artist and a great carpenter/builder. Those two don't always go hand in hand, but here it does. The surroundings are peaceful and beautiful. And you can always find a place to sit and enjoy. My dog lived roaming around without a leash for a week. And for those if you who haven't been to Vermont before (like myself) it's super dog friendly everywhere you go. The gentleman at Ben&Jerry's was more concerned about getting Luna water - and her own scoop of vanilla ice cream - than he was helping my parents and myself. Rik is the perfect host! Did I mention he had fresh baked rosemary bread ready when you arrive? And breakfast foods in the fridge. We had the most wonderful stay in his cabin - and highly recommend it!

Whimsical Cabin

  • 5 out of 5
What an awesome cabin! I wish we could have stayed longer, Rik met us when we arrived and brought us fresh bread. He built the cabin and his skill as a mason and artist were apparent. The fire place, the bathrooms, all of the tree branches and trunks incorporated into the cabin are amazing. The location is great too, secluded, with amazing views, yet not too far from Manchester Center and Dorset. We will definitely be staying here again next time we are int he area.

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.
