vacation rental description

The perfect getaway...for a week or two...or just a long weekend...any time of year! 

Less than three hours from Boston. Less than five hours from New York City.


Our oversized log cabin will accommodate up to seven couples or one or two families. While there are only two "conventional" bedrooms in this three level log home (one of which is part of a completely separate "mother-in-law apartment" on the lower level of the house), there is also a fully enclosed queen size private sleeping loft ... plus a tiny (but still queen size) room that we call "the cave" because the roof of the house slopes down into it...there is plenty of sleeping room for two adults or two little ones in "the cave"... but no standing up or dancing around...unless you happen to be under four feet tall (think "sleeping quarters" in the cabin of a boat...minus the motion of the ocean). Again, all four of these private spaces are queen size.   There are also several not-so-private sleeping spaces ... everything from twin size built in "sleeping nooks" to full and queen size fold out futons on frames.


The perfect size group would be one, two or three adult couples with maybe up to five or six little ones.

Our winter guests enjoy skiing at Okemo (seven miles away) or Killington, the largest ski area in the East (20 miles away). Bromley, Magic and Stratton are also well within striking distance. Cross-country skiing on prepared trails is available less than five miles from the house at Fox Run (a golf course in summer and fall), as well as on the innumerable prepared snowmobile trails that cris-cross our area. Even horse drawn sleigh rides are available. 

Summer and fall vacationers have all that Vermont has to offer close at hand. Hiking, biking, horseback riding, tennis, golf, antique hunting and even Old-Time Locomotive Train rides are all nearby. Swimming , Boating and fishing are all to be found on Lake Ninevah. We throw in our two kayaks, our canoe and our fishing dinghy (all people powered) at no extra charge. Echo Lake, Lake Pauline and Lake Amhurst are all only a few minutes away.

traveler reviews for this killington cabin rental

Missed opportunity

Review submitted: August 25, 2012   Date of arrival: July 27, 2012

This house is in a lovely location near Lake Ninevah. The kitchen is usable and the linens are supplied, clean and ample. Wi-fi was reliable. Otherwise, the house was a disappointment. The loft bedroom was unusable by us because of accessibility problems. There were 3 usable bedrooms and we needed 4,as advertised. The additional sleeping places were either hard futons or random pillows on platforms. The house was moldy. Some of the furniture was in poor repair. We were so uncomfortable we left early.

I was in touch with the owner, who says he is working on some of the issues I raised.

Owners response: This is the first time in many years that I have had a group of "unhappy campers" at my vacation home in Vermont. For the record, there are pictures of the loft bedroom on the VacationRentals.com site clearly showing the ladder that leads up to the sleeping loft. There should have been no "accessibility" issues. In addition to the pictures on VacationRentals.com, I clearly state the following on the house website:

"While there are only two "conventional" bedrooms in this three level log home (one of which is part of a completely separate "mother-in-law apartment" on the lower level of the house), there is also a fully enclosed queen size private sleeping loft ... plus a tiny (but still queen size) room that we call "the cave" because the roof of the house slopes down into it... Again, all four of these private spaces are queen size."

There was a previously unreported broken rocking chair in the den area of the main level of the house which should have been removed by my property management team before the arrival of the renters. I have since been up to the house and I have repaired the rocker myself. While I was there, I shared the house with a family visiting from another part of the world. I took the "mother-in-law apartment" and they took the upper levels of the house. This is the review they posted on AirBnb:

"We spent wonderful time in Bill's place during the summer. It was like a dream! The house is amazing. We didn't want to leave. We cancelled the next place we should have stayed in so we could enjoy a little bit more in Bill's place. We loved to take his kayaks to the lake or just hike around. Bill is also a very good host and advisor. We plan to come again in the winter! We will recommend it for all our friends."

Immediately prior to the unhappy campers, the house was occupied by a large family who come to my place for a week or two every summer, all the way from Austin, Texas. This was their fifth year in a row. Before them it was a family from upstate New York, back for their second straight year...and they sent me the following e-mail:

"Thanks so much for the quick return of the security deposit. We had a great time and we’re looking forward to next year! Thanks again for your hospitality. It’s a perfect place for us and the kids love it!"

I regret the disappointment felt by the folks that posted the negative review. They clearly did not get what they were expecting. Four straight days of heavy rain did not help.
