This place is perfect! When I started thinking about small home living I would have never imagined a better place. It is a healthy hike up a hill, very private minus the occasional squirrel visitors. The set up is studio-like with all of your basic amenities you need to survive plus some extra features (hot tub, grill and fire pit). I am still impressed knowing that Andrew built all of this himself including the hot tub and the heating/filtration system attached to the hot tub. At night it is a beautiful, serene wonderland. Marilou and Andrew have hung up lanterns around the cabin for warm night lighting. If you decide to adventure the local area at night you can rest assured your path to the cabin will be lit upon your arrival home though there are flashlights in the cabin just in case! I love the location which is quiet and far enough from civilization yet still a reasonable drive to St. Johnsbury, a hop and a skip away from the highway entrance, just a short distance from New Hampshire’s White Mountain region and very close to a reservoir where you can enjoy water sports. In other words there is lots to do and see though staying in the cabin is a relaxing way to spend your days as well. Marilou and Andrew are very loving, welcoming hosts. When we arrived we chatted for a little while and met their adorable new beagle! They showed us around briefly and gave us a quick tour of the place and a how-to run down which was much appreciated! …and yes the reviews are true–there is a mini fridge they stock with eggs and real Vermont maple syrup (can you say delicious?), Belgain waffle mix can be found on the shelf and they have a legitimate waffle iron. In other words, breakfast was amazing! I highly recommend this place! I hope you enjoy your stay there as much as I did!
