Modern Amenities in a Real Log Cabin that Sleeps up to Four

Overview: welcome to Thornapple Cottage, an authentic log cabin on 5 quiet acres in Stowe, Vermont. Enjoy a soak in the outdoor, year-round hot tub, or sit by the cozy gas fireplace after a day of hiking, skiing, or shopping. 2 bedrooms (1 king bed, 2 twins), perfect for a honeymoon or a family of four. Comfortably furnished and whistle-clean, with satellite TV and WiFi.

*Please note: sorry, but we do not accept monthly, seasonal, or long-term rentals, i.e., date ranges greater than two weeks.

Specifics: this comfortably furnished log cabin is nestled privately on five and a half acres with a new, four-person outdoor year-round hot tub, The location is a tenth of a mile up a scenic gravel road, yet only minutes from dining and shopping, as well as world-class skiing at Stowe Mountain Resort or cross-country skiing at famous Trapp Family Lodge.

The cabin is tucked away in a little dell at the edge of the woods where you can relax, slow down and unwind, or -- if you prefer -- keep in touch with wireless broadband and satellite TV. Comfortably furnished, the cabin has a full kitchen with lots of counter and cupboard space, a king-sized bed in one bedroom, and two twins in the other, washer/dryer, and A/C

The cottage and surrounding land: This log cabin cottage is situated on five and a half acres of pastoral privacy with mountain views. Sip coffee in your skivvies on the porch and watch wildlife in the meadow below; or enjoy the outdoor hot tub in privacy. Take nature walks from your front door, then come home to nestle in front of a fire in the field stone fireplace.

Things to do in Stowe: The cottage is a just a mile and a half from the center of Stowe Village and its many shops, restaurants, and galleries. Stowe is famous for its alpine and cross country skiing, and its many activities -- winter and summer -- and of course our spectacularly vivid fall foliage. Come in January and have fun at our annual winter carnival; come in summer and enjoy outdoor concerts at Trapp Family Lodge; come in mid-October and take in a huge, juried craft show; come during spring time off-season (April - end of June) and enjoy not only exceptionally reasonable rates, but the beauty of a lush, Vermont spring in full bloom, including our annual flower festival; come in late fall for a quiet, romantic get-away.

Sports enthusiast?: If dining, shopping, and luxuriating at Stowe's exceptional spas seems too tame, check out the skiing at Stowe Mountain Resort, or go cross country skiing or snow shoeing at Trapp Family Lodge or any of the other three area touring centers. Take a snowmobile tour, or go sledding. Maybe take a hike on many miles of scenic trails and bring your dog! Maybe golf is your thing? Stowe offers four excellent golf courses within ten miles. Or perhaps you'd like to go horseback riding, or mountain biking? The opportunities for outdoor recreation are endless.

About LeeLee Goodson

My husband and I spent our childhoods in Stowe, and after leaving for school(s) and subsequent travel, we each decided to return, where we 're-met,' married, and have happily raised our children.

LeeLee Goodson purchased this cabin in 1984

Why LeeLee Goodson chose Stowe

This was where we raised our two young children and only left because we purchased a nearby farm to begin our veterinary practice; but we couldn't bear to sell the cabin -- which is why we now rent it.

Notes:
This cottage is an authentic Vermont log cabin, charmingly decorated, yet also furnished with modern conveniences for your comfort, such as wireless broadband and satellite TV. Cell phone coverage is good. The house also comes equipped with dishes, cooking pans, linens, towels, paper products such as toilet paper and paper towels, hand soap, dish detergent, laundry soap, and basic spices. A Shaw's supermarket is one mile away. We provide heat or AC, electricity, and snow plowing. There is an outdoor garbage bin and indoor recycle bin, which we will empty at the end of the rental. We will ensure that the path from the drive to the house is shoveled upon your arrival, and after any major storms, but should we get just a dusting to a couple of inches, you'll need to shovel the walkway if you desire. A snow shovel is on the porch. There's a sledding hill on the premises, but you'll need to provide your own sled(s).

Magical Christmas getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is just as perfect as the pictures. Cozy and warm with all the essentials. We spent our babies first Christmas in a winter wonderland and felt like it was our home for the week. Easy access to town and skiing on the mountain. Our dog loved the private property to roam. We will definately be back.

A Storybook Cabin

Dreaming of our return.....you will too!

  • 5 of 5

Staring at the pictures of the Thornapple Cottage not even home 24 hours from our stay.....

Recalling the look at my love's face sitting in the hot tub, literally melting away his stress from work and the craziness he lives daily.

Recalling the peaceful view of trees gently blowing in the wind and seeing the sweetest hummingbirds come by for a quick "hello".

Recalling the reminder this cabin gives to smile more and take time to smell the fresh country air especially on its scenic porch.

Recalling that first sip of coffee early in the morning, reading a favorite book by fireside.

Recalling the sound of the pooling rain falling in the rain catcher reminding us of the gentle and simple calming things in life.

Dreaming of our return!

****************************************************************************************

Leelee truly cares to make your stay as peaceful and relaxing as possible. Through the years, she continues to upkeep the grounds surrounding this cabin, and they are gorgeous, as well as the inside of this cozy little peace of Heaven. Book this and see for yourself.....

Wonderful stay in cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Thornapple Cottage in Stowe! Warm and inviting log cabin with gas fireplace that we used every day of our stay! Worked well for a family of 4 with 2 teenage boys and one polite dog. Everyone loved the hot tub, especially after a day of skiiing! Great fun exploring the grounds and tromping through the woods. Highly recommend staying here!

Quaint and cosy - perfect winter retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 loved our two-week mid-winter stay in this gorgeous cabin. It was lovely and warm, even during the -15 degree cold snap. The hot tub was wonderful and the cabin was well appointed with all necessary items for a self-sufficient stay. It is very private and the grounds are fun to explore - with forests and a creek! The cute town of Stowe is only a 5 minute drive and Stowe ski resort is just 20 minutes away. Our only criticism is that the main bed is a bit old and soft - but it didn't significantly detract from our enjoyment of the place.

Cozy beyond words and expectations!

  • 5 of 5

I write this review standing at the window of this sublime little cottage as big fat snow flakes drift lazily down on the first snow of the season. Fitting because this cottage is magical. It is cozy, rustic, and precisely what one might imagine a log cabin should be and then some!
