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.

Rik has put so much into every little detail

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is so incredible. So much thought was put into every little detail - every time you think you've seen it all, another creative solution or detail pops into sight. Rik was a great host - we truly enjoyed our stay and since we chose his cabin to get married in, we expect we will be back year after year to celebrate. Our small party of family members came from 7-11 hours away by plane or car and everyone felt very much at home at the cabin - chilling in the hammocks, on the porch, on the patio, in the living room and, of course, around the kitchen island.

The kitchen was stocked with most everything you would need and Rik even left us a few things in the fridge just in case and everyone was hoping he would return with more loaves of his delicious rosemary bread.

Anglers - read this! Come on up this way - the cabin is located just 20-25 mins from the infamous Battenkill River, 10-15 mins from The Mettawee River, and The Indian River meanders right through the property across the street from the driveway up to the cabin - ask the folks down there for permission and you are good to go.

Rik, we will see you again real soon.

Rent This Place!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful and Rik is a great host. He was very attentive but still provided us the space we needed to relax and enjoy our stay. The area is somewhat remote but within driving distance of all the major Vermont destinations. We loved our time here and can't wait to go back.

Quiet cabin with lovely details

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend in the cabin. The cabin itself has some great details - such as a shower with jungle decorations! The kitchen was very well stocked with all kinds of utensils (we cooked fairly involved meals there). Sounds travel quite easily in the cabin, so make sure your snoring friends sleep on their stomachs! There are some opportunities to hike in the terrain around the cabin, but for a more strenuous hike, we went about 30 minutes to Manchester Center where you can access some of the Green Mountain trails. We also had lovely lunches there.

Perfect Spiritual retreat weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I came up with four girlfriends for a refreshing visit. We enjoyed the beautiful handiwork and detail that went into every aspect of the cabin. We explored around and were made new by waking up to the mountains every day. We were greeted and felt welcomed into a home by Rik who shared freshly made bread and was very generous. We were very impressed that he took the time to go over recycling with all of his guests- something we hope many take home to implement. We also spent some time outside at night to be with the Stars that were all out to say hello in all their glory.

Everything about the place allowed us to take a break and just enjoy. Highly recommended.

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

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.
