About Rik Sassa

I am a stone mason/carpenter/artist that believes in living simply and close to nature. I enjoy creating spaces for people to use and demonstrating that living spaces can be beautiful, efficient comfortable and economical to build if you use your imagination and local resources. I think a building can have a life of it's own and impart a feeling on the people that stay there. I stive to create exotic, beautiful and organic structures that resonate tranquillity and harmony with their surroundings...... I hope you will agree.

Why Rik Sassa chose Stratton and Bromley Ski Areas

This property has every thing that I was looking for in a piece of land: various levels, a view, open land and wooded, some huge old tree and stone walls that give it a feeling of history, water nearby and a rural feeling, and of course- being in Vermont, a state I feel a great connection with.

What makes this cabin unique

The benefits of this property are that it is centrally located, as I have said, 'all roads lead to West Pawlet.....eventually'. It is also private yet easy to access.

A perfect weekend getaway cabin.

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property, very unique yet comfortable and welcoming. Rik met us when we arrived Friday night and brought us a fresh loaf of bread, which was delicious. He provides most everything you need, we have no complaints and will definitely be back next year. Be sure to walk down the hill and see the hobbit house. Yes, the hobbit house. It's awesome.

Comfortable and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Great house for just about anything - location is out of the way enough but easily accessed and near whatever you need. Lots of room and gorgeous views. Walks right from the house are beautiful, or a short drive takes you to other hiking spots, farm stores for fresh milk, cheese, eggs, or to restaurants. Rik's bread is epic, so I guess he'll have to make it forever...

Top notch accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Do not miss an opportunity to stay at this incredible, nature-inspired log home built by host Rik Sassa. Beautiful in the winter, it must be spectacular during the other three seasons. Our stay was rejuvenating and exactly what we needed to counter our busy metropolitan Boston lives. Thank you Rik, we Look forward to meeting you again.

Wonderful getaway spot!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the cabin just do not do it justice! It is the coolest rental property we have ever stayed at. The detail in each room was amazing.

Rik was so accommodating and friendly. Upon arrival we received fresh bread, he stocked the fridge with a few items like eggs and orange juice, and left us fresh fruit in a bowl. Rik gave us pointers on the best spots in the area and great explanation of how to use the showers and Wifi. We would honestly go back there in a heartbeat.

This is the perfect Vermont house! The property was clean, it was secluded, and really a piece of art. There was plenty of space for the 6 of us and our 8 month old. All of that, paired with Riks personality, makes this a perfect vacation spot.

We had initially planned on bringing our dog and ended up leaving her with a sitter and Rik gave us the money back for not bringing her and we didn't even ask for it!

Thank you Rik for your hospitality. We had a perfect weekend at your cabin and We look forward to returning!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Once more …Thank you Rik for having us …

We had a great time at your Cabin. When we arrived Rick greeted us with Home Baked Bread and introduced us room by room to his marvelous home. He gave us detailed directions to the closest Store (Price Chopper in Granville NY -15/20 minutes away) and local attractions. We are strongly recommending “Pine Grove Dinner” (68 Quaker St, Granville) for delicious homemade food ( they are only open until 2PM , but a must go place 2 minutes from Price Chopper) On your way back from Granville you may stop by at local Farm Store for your fresh eggs, cheese, maple syrup and more local goods. Even though the weather was not cooperating with our snow adventures, we had plenty of time to rest, play games (Jenga was Rulling the table) and sit by the gorgeous fireplace. For people interested in going only for ski/snowboard fun: Bromley Ski Resort is the closest one to the Cabin (30-35minutes ) ; Stratton Mountain is approximately 45Min to an Hour away and Killington Ski Resort is an 1H.15 to 1H.30 minutes away) You have to remember that you will be driving mostly on country roads , therefore, take/give 15 minutes depending on conditions. We also had great time riding snowmobiles in the area of Mt. Killington (www.snowmobilesvermont.com/ 802.422.2121)

If you want to rest and relax you don't have to leave the cabin :) Rick's Property offers lots of hiking trails and fun attractions. You can visit Tree House up the hill and walk few steps down from the Cabin and check Hobbit House (still in progress , but we know final result will be breathtaking as everything Rick does)

We would love to come back to Rick’s place maybe in Spring/Summer to enjoy the beautiful views, hikes, bike rides , horseback rides and local attractions that we were unable to enjoy in our 3 days in West Pawlet.

Well worth it

Peaceful cabin retreat

  • 5 of 5

A group of us rented the cabin for a weekend retreat last year and decided to come back again this year! The cabin itself is a work of art and had everything we could have needed for cooking, the property is also great for taking a hiking around. We had a little trouble getting up the driveway in the snow so Rik came right away and helped us out. He's very hospitable, it's a beautiful location, and overall a wonderful experience!

This is a four season location, centrally located between five ski areas (two large, Stratton and Killington and three smaller ones, West Mountain, Bromely and Willard Mountain). There is cross country skiing and snow shoeing nearby. In the warmer months, there is trail hiking at Merck Forest Farm Center (along with various homsteading demonstrations and workshops on different weekends). There are a few mountains to hike nearby for views of surrounding towns and area (1 to 2 hour hikes). Many biking opportunities around, including a tandem bike here that is at your disposal. There is a 30 mile converted rail trail at the bottom of the driveway for biking, walking, horsebackriding and snowmobiling. Fishing on the Famous Mettowee and Battenkill rivers (canoeing/tubing as well). Dive into history and swim at the Old Dorset Marble Quarry, there is also a playhouse and an 18 hole golf course/tennis, along with fine dining in Historic Dorset (15 mins away), Saratoga is an hour away with Racetrack/Casino, shopping, dining, music and arts. Water slide, tree-top adventure course and zip line at two ski resorts in summer. Beautiful Lake St. Catherine (15 mins away), Lake Bomoseen (35 mins away) and big Lake George (45 mins away) all have boating, water skiing while Lake George has golf, mini golf, dining, malls, and Great Escape amusement park/ water park. Locally there are numerous farmers markets, yard sales, and antiquing options around. Natural Vermont provides streams to peruse, birds to watch, hunting in hunting season and mid Sept. to mid Oct. is foliage season when the hills burst into oranges, reds and yellows. Sightseeing all around, but if all this activity seems too much and what is really needed is a break from activity, then grab a cold drink and relax on the porch swing or hammock and enjoy the sunset while listening to the great horned owls, then come inside for a nice romantic evening in front of the fire.
