We have just been listed as one of the top twelve cabins in Vermont by Only In My State online magazine. Come visit us and find out why!
Alder Brook Cabin is a small rustic lodge on the edge of the woods. Jericho Road is a main route and can be busy during morning and evening commute times however, the cabin is secluded from the road It features a single room with attached screened porch, bunks for two, electric lights, a small fridge, coffee maker, microwave and WIFI. Enclosed outdoor hot and cold shower and marine style toilet are located twenty five feet away. The porch is a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee, a glass of wine or tumbler of scotch in the evening. Board games are available. There is a fire pit with benches outside for cozy evenings by the fireside and marshmallow toasting. Firewood is supplied.
This is "Glamping" at its best: almost camping but without the bugs and sleeping on the hard ground! Instead, be close to the outdoors but enjoy cotton bath linens, and the hottest, strongest shower you've had in years. What more could you ask?
We are ten miles outside of Burlington and four miles out of Essex Junction. Stowe and Ben and Jerry's are a forty minute drive. A multiplex theater, grocery and outlet stores, restaurants and mini golf are all found within a mile of the cabin. Parking is a few feet away onsite and we are on a limited bus route. (no weekend service)
This is a place for folks who want to "rough it" a bit but still maintain some creature comforts. We love it but it's not for everyone. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.(URL HIDDEN)This year the cabin has additional electrical outlets for convenient charging of electronic devices. We're already off to a great season with our usual wonderful late spring weather and lots of new friends visiting the cabin. We're looking forward to meeting and welcoming you to our special little corner of Vermont. See you soon!
Check in time is 4:00pm to 9:00pm only.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
We will only accommodate two guests. Please do not bring an extra guest beyond a total of two. We will be unable to accommodate them. With prior arrangement we will accept one small baby with its own sleeping arrangements. We're sorry to have to make this restriction but, the cabin is quite small and the facilities too restrictive for more.
Dogs are permitted but must be on leash when outdoors and are never to be left in the cabin alone when you are away.
Most of all we want you to enjoy yourselves. We ask that you do not have any open flames in the cabin. Dogs are welcome but must be on leash outside the cabin and are never permitted to be alone in the cabin when you are away. If you wish to use a camp stove please ask first. Some evenings in the spring and fall are rather chilly and we will provide an electric heater if it is needed. We also ask that guests keep the sound level low after 10:00 in respect for those who need to sleep. We live on the property and will meet you when you arrive. If we're not right there, the cabin will be open and you may go right in and make yourself at home. Check in time is 4:00pm to 9:00pm. After 9:00 pm doors will be locked and there will be no one available to give you admittance. If you must arrive later, please contact us in advance so we can work something out for you.
