Vermont is a true outdoor lover’s paradise, with lovely cities and mountain communities offering breathtaking beauty all year.

1- Cozy Log Cabins located in the Green Mountains of Vermont

This vermont cabin is a wonderful place to get away from it all! Sleep in one of the hand-hewn log cabins on this 232-acre property. Enter a charming country kitchen, fully equipped with everything you need to prepare a romantic dinner or simply relax in the cozy living area by the wood-burning stove with your favorite book.

Early summer evenings are best spent rocking on the covered porch with a glass of cool lemonade in hand, watching the wind rustle through the leaves and watching deer graze nearby.

If you’re feeling more adventurous, take a walk down to the pond and ride on the paddle boat, perhaps catching a glimpse of the wild geese and Mallards that visit there, or hike one of our many, beautiful woodland trails. Picnics are a’must’ with the outdoor grills and picnic tables.

2- Creekside Camp cabin

While relaxing at Creekside Camp, take in the sights and sounds of the flowing stream. Creekside Camp is a 1,300-square-foot historic home located on the banks of a rocky creek.

Creekside Camp has kept its historic charm while also providing all modern amenities.

The house has a completely renovated gourmet kitchen and bathrooms in the bohemian style. The exposed posts and beams, as well as the wood burning stove, give this home a distinct Vermont feel.
