All Season Vacation Rental Log Cabin in Rural Vermont
We welcome you to a small piece of rural America that embodies our love of peaceful serenity and our love of nature and God’s creatures.
We purchased this log cabin near South Woodstock, Vermont in Spring 2000 and named it “Leave No Trace” to symbolize the way nature should be respected by all. It’s a privilege in this busy life to have the opportunity to share in nature’s beauty through all Seasons without altering it in any way – to pass through and enjoy – and to “leave no trace” of our having been there. We ask that you too enjoy our cabin and the woodland and that you leave it as you found it for those who follow you.
Our two bedroom/2 bath log cabin is equipped with microwave, refrigerator, stove, outdoor barbecue grill, washer, dryer, DirecTV/VCR/DVD, dishes, linens, jetted bathtub, wood stoves (in addition to a furnace) and all the comforts required for an enjoyable stay. New at Leave No Trace Cabin is wireless internet capability for those who can’t quite disconnect themselves from the electronic age! To connect to the wireless you’ll need to bring a laptop or iPad. Having internet on a back road in VT is unusual so don’t expect the same speed you have in the cities – streaming videos will not be feasible. Since cellphone service is almost nonexistent, a landline is provided for your phone calls.
There is a full basement with outside entrance – unfinished but bright with a wood stove where more can sleep in a camp environment. Leave No Trace is located on 10 acres of mostly wooded terrain with the small Densmore Brook running through the backyard such that you can hear it from the rocker on the porch. A large deck surrounds the back of the cabin. Down from the porch is a campfire site and nearby hangs a hammock between two shady trees. There is also a two stall run-in shed barn and a small wooded horse paddock for those visiting equines.
Vermont is known for its small country roads dotted with covered bridges and quaint country stores. Quiet walks on the numerous back road trails are especially relaxing. Leave No Trace is located on one of these unpaved (yet plowed in the Winter) roads, nestled between an herb and sheep farm on one side and a horse farm on the other. The area is excellent for hiking, biking, horseback riding (near GMHA), 3 ski areas nearby (both alpine and cross-country), sledding, snowmobiling, fishing and hunting. There is also an indoor ice rink in the town of Woodstock nearby.There are so many sights of interest close at hand that you will find yourself planning another trip back to Vermont to see more.
Note: There is a two night minimum booking.
