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 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.

A MUST STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5

I booked Rik's amazing cabin for my cousin's 30th birthday party. For the moment we arrived at the bottom of the hill Rik was an amazing host. He was worried about me driving up the hill, as it was covered in snow & I don't have all weather tires, so he tied his truck to my car and pulled us up. We were like "this is going to be a fun weekend!" From his homemade bread that was INCREDIBLE, to keeping the wood burning furance going, and even sharing a drink with us one night, what a great guy!!!

And the cabin, WOW!!! The pictures don't do it justice!! So many details that make this cabin a must stay!!

I will be planning another trip very soon!!!

Thank you again Rik!!!

P.S. Don't be surprised if my mom calls you to hire you for your handy work!!

Secluded Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I have to start off by saying that the pictures do not even do this place justice! The beautiful decor and style in the cabin are like nothing you have ever seen. Attention to detail everywhere! Great views of the mountains! The owner is very friendly and greeted us with a loaf of homemade bread among other surprises that I will not mention. Take a relaxing vacation and pay a visit!

Do Not Hesitate- Book Now

  • 5 of 5

Truly one of the best VRBO experiences I have ever had. Rik is the consumate host. He greeted us warmly, explaining the features of the home, which is truly a work of art. He then returned a bit later with the best Rosemary bread I have ever had!

The house was built by Rik using amazing local materials. Trees come out of hte beautiful floor and the downstairs bathroom has a waterfall and is like showering in the Amazon. The Upstairs master bath is like a treehouse! We were more than comfortable and his amazing trash program inspired me to compost too! We of course explored VT and went Skiing at Killington- i would say maybe go ski at Okemo as it is closer to the house and Manchester. We found our selves just wanting to say home and relax! I finished a book and if you really want to disconnect this is the place! You MUST have a car though- nothing around for miles, but thats ok! Can't wait to come back in the summer months!

Slice of heaven!

  • 5 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!

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.
