Welcome to our cabin(s) in Vermont! This is where you can find out more information and maybe even discover some fun new things to explore. This guide is a good starting place, but by no means covers all there is to offer in this amazing area and state. Feel free to let us know what else you may discover and click here for some helpful CABIN TIPS.

Just remember, be careful driving… especially at night. The roads are dark and moose often walk down the middle as if they own them. They may be big, but they are very hard to see and hitting one could be disastrous. To see one, it’s best to drive up the Granville Gulf early in the morning. Drive slowly… pull over, and enjoy the views!
Out of our last five rentals at the Little Loft, we have had one honeymooning couple and three engagements. It makes us very happy to know this is happening here as it means our cabin is both inspiring and now, thanks to so many new beginnings, inspired, too!
Our recent renter/photographer, Jennifer Irons graciously shared these beautiful photos to post online. Taken locally, they capture some of the great scenery this remarkable area has to offer. Thank you Jennifer!
There’s some new construction going on up top as Jeff and his assistant Rob are building a new garage. It will provide some much needed storage space for tools and equipment. Feel free to walk up and take a look, but please do not climb on any ladders or staging!
We recently added a fire pit to the Little Loft patio. It is located on the lower stone patio, safe from causing any fires and allowing for some nice views while relaxing. (We ask that you leave it where it is, as the fire bricks keep the heat from damaging our underground wiring.) And please, in NO CASES place it on the upper deck. The heat would melt the Azek decking and cause some major damage. Firewood can be found under the deck and throughout the property, but you may want to bring some newspaper/paper for kindling. Thank you and enjoy!
Our new privacy screen allows for each cabin to enjoy both the desired seclusion/privacy and access to our wooded trails. Made from local rough sawn lumber, Jeff took signs he made to name former campsites and created a tribute to his favorite ski trails while growing up. Can you identify which resorts/mountains where these trails are from? There are eight different trials and one lift (former T-bar, now replaced with a chair). Have fun hiking and making your guesses!
With spring here and summer coming, the longer days make grilling on the patio and eating on the deck easier and more fun. We get tons of afternoon sunshine which make for relaxing and spectacular dining. Stop by at nearby North Hollow Farm, Rochester on Rt 100 for some of the most amazing meat, especially the hamburger! (Also available at Macs Market in Rochester.)
With two cabins now available for rent, I made and installed a new sign (with Chester) at the driveway fork. Hopefully this helps avoid any confusion, but please note the name of your cabin and/or check your directions to be sure, thanks!
Trail Blaze Markers
Look for the circular green arrows now marking the trail thru the woods and out into the fields. Please note that once you go thru the woods, the open fields are owned by our neighbors. Treat them with the respect they deserve and a smile.
Our new 250 square foot cabin “Little Loft” is now online and available for rent starting late January. Anyone who has rented the “Romantic Retreat” will recognize the craftsmanship/details, but all new renters can discover the beauty of this special part of Vermont: Little Loft

We recently added a picnic table and chairs to the field on the top of the property. It’s just a few hundred yards up the trail where you can enjoy a nice meal outdoors (or even just a glass of wine or beer). Feel free to explore the woods and surrounding fields before or after, too.
