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 throughout the property and are welcome to use it, 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 the fields are open and owned by our kind neighbor who allows us to use them. 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.
There are several trails around the cabin and they connect to many others on our neighbors property. We are fortunate to have friendly neighbors who don’t mind us using them, but as always, please be respectful. More info is in the hiking section, but feel free to enjoy a nice walk anytime of year (with or without your dog)!
Snowshoeing with your dog on our trails is just one of many fun activities here at the cabin:
Killington opened to the public Monday, Nov. 4 (to passholders the day before). Reports are saying that the man-made snow conditions were great and that it even snowed on Sunday!
