Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cabin in Sandgate

A relaxing, year around, weekend retreat is why we purchased this home.

We have owned this home for 10 years as a relaxing weekend get away and recently decided to rent. The cabin is on 11 acres, but we have only one neighbor in the summer only. The cabin is on the side of a private mountain at 1300 feet elevation so there is an entire mountain to hike or snowshoe(all sizes available for your use). Our porch overlooks a brook that passes right by the house that runs year around. Because it is remote, cell phone service is spotty at the cabin, but you can use WIFI calling or the land line, we do have satellite TV. There are sleds , snow shoes and snow tubes as well.

The Cabin is 10 minutes from Sherman's General Store, Great Sugar Houses (Maple Syrup around March), and Dairy Farms (There is a Vermont cheese weekend and the dairy farms give tours). In 20 minutes you can get to Manchester, in 25 Bromley Mountain, 15 minutes from the Norman Rockwell Homestead in Arlington and another terrific general store. In Dorset there is a great marble quarry for swimming; about 15 minutes.

Saratoga Springs is about 35-40 miles and the drive is not bad if you want to see the horse races or go to the mineral baths.

There are all types of board games and a pool table in the lower level. There is also a laundry room in the lower Level.

Bedroom on the main level has a queen bed, the Lower Level bedroom has two twins and the upstairs bedrooms have 4 twins in each but comfortably sleep two adults in each. Because we are on the side of a hill, the lower level is a walk out and bedroom has a window.

A gem in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most peaceful, beautiful, and coziest cottages a person could ever find. I stayed for a weekend and needed to recharge my batteries-well this property is the perfect place to do that! It is tucked away in a quaint little part of southern VT, built next to a babbling stream on a side of a mountain, and has the most charming ammenities one needs to feel right at home! The house is spacious enough to fit many people comfortably, but still maintains that cozy cabin feeling. It is quiet and private, beautifully maintained, and the owner is very accommodating, giving very detailed directions, activities to do while there, and available if one should have any questions! I cannot say enough great things about this perfect place. I was sad to close the door and say goodbye as it truly felt like home!!

Absolutely Lovely Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage while we were in town for the horse show in East Dorset. It was so nice to come home to such a charming, cozy and clean place after a long day! We loved how quite it was up in the woods and enjoyed every thing the cottage had to offer! Sitting outside on the screened in porch and listening to the creek was our favorite. The owners were absolutely lovely to deal with and they provided us with every thing possible we could need! Definitely will rent next year!

Beautiful, CLEAN, and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, well-kept, and in a serene setting. We stayed with our three young children and all of us fit in one of the spacious rooms upstairs. The linens, plates, towels, and appliances were all clean. The bathrooms have been updated and were clean as well. Any questions we had were immediately answered by the owner and/or the caretaker. We arrived during a snowstorm, and the plow came the next morning to clear out the driveway for us. The property is beautiful and we would have loved to have gone exploring with our children, but it was just too cold the weekend we were there. We kept ourselves entertained with the many games stocked in the house, and found our weekend to be comfortable and relaxing. We were very happy with this rental and would love to return. We would also highly recommend it to friends and family.
