Nestled on 112 acres in the Green Mountain National Forest, Robert Frost Mountain Cabins are located “off the beaten path” on a well maintained gravel road in quaint Ripton, VT - summer home of renowned poet, Robert Frost. Our half mile long driveway is just long enough to leave your cares behind. The cabins are also just a short drive from the beautiful village of Middlebury (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) - home to Middlebury College. The college's downtown and Bread Loaf campuses are both less than 10 miles away. And the town has something for everybody - museums, historic sites, restaurants, music, art, shopping, Tasting Trail, hiking trails and more. For outdoor enthusiasts, nearby trails, ski centers, rivers and lakes offer an abundance of fun recreational opportunities throughout the year.
We live on the property and will be here to make sure that all of your needs are met. Forgot charcoal? We've got it. Want help choosing a hiking trail? We're happy to give you first hand advice. Looking for a place to get local meats or produce? We know the best places! But we also respect your privacy and recognize that you may just be here for peace and quiet, solitude or quality time together. We won't be offended if you just want time alone.
Please note that the 37" TVs in the cabins are provided for DVD viewing. The TV in our common area, The Loft, has satellite reception and DVR service.
Our well insulated cabins have been designed with energy efficiency in mind and will keep you toasty in the winter. Thanks to mountain elevation and breezes, summer temperatures on our property are typically very comfortable and allow you to enjoy the fresh air. On the rare occasion when we experience extreme high temperatures, AC units can be installed in your cabin.
