Picnic at the Top!
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.
Hiking Around the Cabin
There are several trails around the cabin and through the woods. Please be aware that the large open fields are owned by our neighbors, so 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 for the Season Nov. 4th
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!
Fall Foliage Photos
It was a beautiful fall foliage season… so glad to get to see and enjoy it!
Beautiful Moose Photo
A recent guest spotted this bull moose off of the Natural Turnpike in Ripton this September. He photographed it some time between 7:30 and 8am and has graciously allowed us to display it here, so please enjoy!
Michael Egan Glassblowing
Located right here in Granville, Michael Egan Glassblowing is a definite must visit. You can watch Michael and apprentice(s) at work and/or shop in his gallery. We’ve found many one of a kind pieces and his beautiful glassware makes for excellent gifts!
What’s going on up the trail?
Some of our long time renters have inquired as to what is being built just up the trail? It’s a tiny, 250 square foot cabin with loft, which we plan to make available for rent and use as our “guest house” when family and friends are visiting. Originally built as our new shed next to the cabin, I’ve had it moved and placed on a foundation so that it will be usable all year. I am currently in the process of finishing the interior, then planning to begin rentals some time early 2021.
