Located in the heart of the Northeast Kingdom in between the towns of Craftsbury, Saint Johnsbury, and Newport (and just 25 miles from the Canadian border!), our home is settled in the quaint and quiet town of Glover – named after American Revolutionary war hero Brigadier General John Glover and now home to the famed Bread and Puppet Theatre of New England.
We’re offering a comfortable, pet and kid-friendly, A-frame log cabin surrounded by 30 acres of pristine Appalachian woodland to explore and hike. We also have a 6 acre front yard complete with a 1 acre pond you are welcome to fish and relax by. After a long day enjoying all the rustic beauty and small town charm that Vermont has to offer, you can warm yourself by our pellet stove which heats both floors of our over 1,600 sq ft 4 bedroom, 2 full baths home. 8 Guests Max per stay (CHILDREN/INFANTS *INCLUDED.*)
~ AMENITIES ~
We have a ramp leading up to the house for easy access. We also have a crib, a high chair, and child gates for the second floor staircase if necessary. Small and large dogs are permitted. Wifi and HD TV with access to Hulu and Netflix are provided. In the mudroom/laundry room, you'll find a washer and dryer as well as heated floors, chairs, coat hooks, and boot racks to unload your winter gear on. During your stay, you will have access to a fully equipped kitchen with a stove and refrigerator, but you can also try out the various restaurants located in the area.
~ LOCAL EATS ~
Enjoy homemade meals at the Busy Bee or peruse Currier Market for fresh local produce and meats as well as admire an extensive menagerie of game mounts. In nearby Barton, Parsons Corner offers up affordable and classic American fare for breakfast and lunch. For dinner, you can head to The Parker Pie Company, a gourmet pizza parlor which features locally-crafted beers, live music, and a distinctly ‘Vermontish’ dining experience.
~ SEASONAL SUGGESTIONS ~
Vermont has many exciting locales and attractions available anytime of the year, but if you're not sure where to start, here are some of our personal recommendations!
FALL ~ Admire Vermont’s beautiful autumn colors, go apple picking, and hunt for the perfect pumpkin. To get some of the best views of Vermont's foliage, ride the Aerial Tram at the Jay Peak Ski Resort which is open year-round. Our personal favorite - sample the hot apple cider and cider donuts at the Cold Hollow Cider Mill in Waterbury!
WINTER ~ Snowshoe, snowmobile, and alpine or cross-country ski around the beautiful winter landscape. Our home is located about one mile from the VAST snowmobiling trail for easy access. The nearest ski resorts are Jay Peak and Burke Mountain. Don't forget to try our world-renowned maple syrup during local Sugar-on-Snow get-togethers.
SPRING ~ Fly-fish Vermont’s rivers, go golfing, or hike the Green Mountain range. Fish for bass, trout, and sturgeon in Lake Memphremagog. We don't have so much a "spring" season as a mud season, so if you’re feeling adventurous, take an ATV and mudbog!
SUMMER ~ Swim, boat, and fish at Crystal Lake and Lake Willoughby. There are several blueberry and raspberry picking areas nearby as well. In Barton you can attend the Orleans County Fair which runs through mid-August. You can also beat the heat at Jay Peak Ski Resort's fully enclosed water park in Jay or visit the world famous Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory in Waterbury.
We hope you enjoy your stay!
