Item Description

Bid for your chance to win a five-night stay in an MCS family's entirely handmade cabin near Huntington, Vermont. Enjoy skiing, swimming, hiking, campfires, and amazing Vermont beer.

This cozy forest retreat is a hand-built cabin full of charming details on 15 acres of land. Tons of windows look out on woods in every direction. Listen to owls and ravens from loft bed. Hiking and snowshoeing right out the back door in Green Mountain Audubon Center. Fire pit, picnic table, and outdoor wood stove. Cross-country skiing, swimming holes, mountain biking, and lovely villages all within 10 minutes drive. Close to Camel's Hump mountain, Long Trail and many downhill ski areas.

The space

Our family built this cabin to spend summers and holidays in Vermont, and now we want to share it with you. Outside you'll find an attached deck and freestanding deck with picnic table. Inside on the ground floor there is a small kitchen, bathroom with shower, dining nook, and den with a wood stove. Upstairs there is a living room with a couch, chairs, bookshelf and dresser; a loft with queen-sized bed, and a small guest/child's bedroom. Reliable WiFi but no TV and cell phone reception is spotty.

Please note: in the winter months (through mid-April) it is necessary to have snow tires, 4x4, or all-wheel drive to reach the cabin.

Guest access

Guests have private parking at cabin and access to yard and hiking trails. In the winter months (through mid-April) the driveway is plowed, still it is generally necessary to have four-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, and/or snow tires to access our cabin.

Other things to note

We are fastidious about sanitizing the space to ensure it is not a vector for COVID. We also leave the cabin empty for several days and nights between guests.

Please note that there are two ladders inside the house, instead of stairs.

This space is not safe for children under 11 because of heights.


For details on the cabin, see Airbnb.
