CABIN IN THE FORREST

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Saxtons River - The Wood House

Chalet Style Custom Home

Hand built custom cabin made of many different species of wood including peruvian Mahogany hard wood floors and reclaimed old wood beams. Our kids nick named it the 'Wood House' . Set in the middle of the woods it has a huge deck jetting out into the tree's at about 20 feet above the ground and another small deck off the loft overlooking the forest that is a great spot to watch the sunrise or to star gaze at night. There is a Pellet fireplace with stone hearth and the house is 'super insulated' to keep it nice and warm. The area is fantastic with lots of hiking trails and antiquing nearby. The perfect place to get away from it all and just be with nature! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do when we can get there

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Guestbook comments from the owner
We should have known not to rent to these people from the start. They said they wanted an "adventure" and our rustic cabin looked perfect. They booked early so I spent a month answering their many emails giving them detailed information on everything from local events to contacts for real estate agents. the list went on and on but I kept going out of my way to give them concierge service above and beyond. I sent them maps for hiking trails, yoga classes, menu's etc. They were told UP FRONT that there was only one king size bed and that there was very little cell service. also sent a "welcome letter" with what is included at the cabin. yet all they could do was complain. The house is professionally cleaned and a set of fresh towels and sheets are provided. I think these ladies should stick to hotels. I would not rent to them unless you want to spend all your time addressing trivial complaints. My brother went way out of his way to try to address their concerns and was met with nasty confrontational behavior. They were refused a refund because it was peak foliage and we had turned away a multitude of renters to accommodate them and they had already been there several days before contacting me. we have had dozens of very happy renters since we started renting but I guess you can expect one like this every once in a while.

We are a family of 4 with two young girls. We live on Marthas vineyard and built the 'wood house' to get into the mountains and woods when we have time to get off the rock. We are publishers of newspapers and Magazines and my wife is the director of Martha's Vineyard Fashion Week

colin young purchased this cabin in 2009

New construction, off the beaten path, total peace and quite, great area of southern vermont

at the base of the Pinnicle with a hiking trail starting right near our property. The 'Wood House' is a perfect spot to get away from it all and relax. Near Skiing and other attractions but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quite of Vermont

COOL CABIN!

  • 5 out of 5
I don't agree with the other reviewer.

The owner and his brother were very nice and accommodating. The house itself, while not finished, has great atmosphere. It has a nice pellet stove, tall wooden ceilings and even a mounted bear head! Perfect place to relax by the fire with friends or as a home base for skiing expeditions. Would recommend.

BIG DISAPPOINTMENT

  • 1 out of 5
When we arrived at this house in the woods we found it not to be finished. It is not painted, no light switch covers and very dirty. They left us three towels for a week, the sheets had been slept on, there were only a couple of light bulbs in the house, a bag and a half of pellets for the stove.It says it sleeps 5. Well, there is a king bed in the loft and 2 couchs in the place but no extra sheets, blankets or pillows.The bath tub was dirty and just one roll of toilet paper. We contacted the owner and he had his brother bring over pellets and light bulbs. Also there is no cell phone service there (just to let you know). We wanted a partial refund but the owner said no that our expectations were not realistic. I would not recommend this property to anyone. It is a work in progress and not ready to rent. It was a BIG disappointment for our vacation that we had planned for a long time.
