Log Cabin In The Woods

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,250 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

A relaxing, year-around retreat.

Our 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 and a smart TV if you have Netflix/Amazon Prime/HULU etc. subscriptions. 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 Weekend end of March), and Artisan and Dairy Farms (There is a Vermont cheese weekend and the dairy farms give tours). In 20 minutes you can get to Manchester (18 miles), Bromley Mountain is 25 miles, The Norman Rockwell Homestead in Arlington and another terrific general store are about 15-20 minutes away. In Dorset there is a great marble quarry for swimming; about 15-20 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 mountain, the lower level is a walk out and bedroom has a window.

About Steve Spirito

Nancy is a Bridal Designer and Steve is an Entrepreneur.

Steve Spirito purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Steve Spirito chose Sandgate

We traveled to the area multiple times and decided to purchase. We spent 10 years improving the property to a point where we feel we can finally arrive and not feel compelled to work on improvements. Although we seldom come without completing a chore or two.

What makes this cabin unique

The setting brings you down a few notches when arriving from the city or suburbs.

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really do not do this sweet little cabin justice! It was just what my husband and I were looking for. It was very clean, quiet and quaint! It made us want to buy a log cabin in Vermont some day, but until then we will definitely be going back to this wonderful place! Thank you Steve and Nancy for making our stay so amazing! Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer!

Wonderful Mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a quiet out of the way retreat, this is the place.

We were looking to get away from everything and everyone, and we found just what we were looking for here. This cabin is beautiful, clean and the surroundings are tranquil. From the babbling brook to the hills behind the house, everything was peaceful and quiet. The stone fireplace kept us comfortable at night. The kitchen has everything you need to make your meals special.

We will definitely be back again.

Beautiful, clean, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a cabin in the middle of the mountains and that's exactly what we got. We were pleasantly surprised with all of the amenities available. We were able to cook dinners with ease with the stocked kitchen tools. We have already recommended this home to family and hope to get back again.

Spacious, yet cozy cabin that feels like home

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin for 4 nights with another family. The first thing I noticed was how clean it was- not a speck of dust to be found anywhere on decorations or shelves. The kitchen was perfect and stocked with all the pots, pans, plates and utensils we could possibly need and more. The living room was cozy and had a beautiful fireplace. The kids (both age 9) enjoyed exploring the dozens of games available. Steve was a pleasure to deal with before, during and after our stay- I would highly recommend his cabin.

This was my third stay at this home and it never disappoints, no matter the season!

  • 5 of 5

This was my third stay at this wonderful home! Whenever I go to Vermont I check to see if I can book this property as it truly feels like home. Always clean, quiet and peaceful, offers every amenity a person could want if they just want to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life; it's really just the perfect getaway!! I cannot say enough great things about this charming house!!

Awesome Cabin Better Than Expected

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the cabin was super clean and very nicely set up. Even though it feels nice and cozy this cabin is actually very large with a main floor and kitchen and master bed, as well as an upstairs, basement, and patio area. Steve (owner) was very responsive and easy to reach and gave us clear instructions. The location was very close to bromley and about an hour from Stratton.

The kitchen was fully stocked and we brought our own food to cook. Also there were snow shoes in the garage and we went for a snow hike around the area.

Overall this place is awesome in person and looks much better than the pictures. I would highly recommend and am interested in staying again.
