About Cubby Momsen

My husband, Frits and I built this cottage from an old barn that we rescued. This was our home while building our new house just completed in October 2013. We lived here with our two dogs very comfortably for 21/2 years and now want to share it with our guests. Frits is a builder who can manage any building or repair job and I am an active real estate broker. Prior to building this new house we lived in Stowe for 35 years. We are available to our guests around the clock should you need anything.

Cubby Momsen purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Cubby Momsen chose Waterbury Center

Whether you are a couple who love nature and the outdoors or just like to curl up next to the wood stove with a good book, you will enjoy this beautiful setting and charming cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Natural ledges, huge rock formations and gorgeous southerly views attracted us to this 18 acre parcel of land surrounded by larger conserved acreage. Building here was a challenge but well worth the effort. We love the convenience of being on the south side of Stowe for easy access to Burlington and the airport yet tucked away in our own private place to enjoy the birds and animals that reside here with us.

Amazing retreat

  • 5 of 5

Badger Cottage is a uniquely beautiful cottage, complete with views and trails to match. It is both rustic and incredibly comfortable, and the perfect retreat after a hard day skiing. We loved that it was away from the hustle and bustle of town - and yet close enough to go when we wanted to. And it had everything we needed to cook and snuggle in during bad weather. The owners are lovely as well - we were incredibly thankful to have them nearby when after an ice storm we got stuck on the road. You couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay.

Wonderful stay at Badger Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had such a wonderful, relaxing time staying at Badger Cottage. It was very cozy and warm, and it had all the amenities we could ever need (washer/dryer, hair dryer, toiletries, towels, sheets, recycling, etc). We loved the rustic, historical charm of the cottage. It is conveniently located halfway in between Waterbury and Stowe, so it is an easy and quick car ride to get to both locations. We unfortunately weren't able to stay long this trip, but we hope to come back for a longer stay in the near future! :)

  • 5 of 5

We loved the ambiance of Badger Cottage. Everything was as expected. The hosts were very nice and I enjoyed talking with Fritz. The dogs were sweet and came out to say hello each day. The trail was great for a vigorous walk with beautiful views. We will definitely return.

This is a gorgeous cottage on a beautiful property. The view of the mountains and forest is a bonus!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Badger cottage. Cubby and Frits were so welcoming and have thought of everything. The cabin is both cozy and modern, with a wood stove that heats the whole place. We woke up each morning to a view of the mountains, and went walking on the easy-to-find trail through the woods with our dog. Cubby and Frits have stocked the cabin with everything you need, and provided plenty of towels, blankets, and wood for the fireplace. The king-sized bed is very comfortable and has an ensuite 1/2 bath that is very convenient. The cottage is less than 10 minutes drive from both Stowe and Waterbury. We will certainly be back. This was probably the best vacation rental we've stayed in. Thank you Cubby and Frits!

We Will Return

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cottage. We've stayed in dozens of VRBO rentals and this was one of our favorites. Very cozy for two people and a dog. Cubby and Frits were very welcoming and friendly and had provided just about everything necessary to make our stay enjoyable. That includes a huge dog bed that our Katie claimed for herself right away. The location was very private, although the cottage is in close proximity to the main house. There is a 1.5 mile trail right out the back of the cottage that loops around the hilltop. The overall location is well suited for all of the activities of Waterbury and Stowe. We will definitely return.
