Dark Star Cabin (on the occupied lands of the Abenaki/Wabanaki) is fully furnished, well insulated, and cozy off-grid solar powered retreat. A large wood stove, dry firewood, kindling, a propane grill, a 2 burner propane stovetop, 15 gallons of water, French press and grinder for making coffee, lots of kitchenware, dish towels, boot dryer, outdoor shower, small refrigerator/freezer, and cleaning supplies are all provided for your use. The cabin sleeps 6: 2 memory foam double beds in the loft plus a queen pullout sofa bed downstairs. You will need to bring your own bedding and linens, but pillows are provided. Bringing cozy slippers is strongly recommended. Hot running water is available in the kitchen and for the outdoor shower. There is a large deck with furniture for lounging late into the evening on a starry night or sipping your coffee while taking in the beauty of fall foliage. A well-maintained outhouse with composting toilet is about 100 feet from the cabin, and Crow's Nest Yurt is about 500 feet below the cabin on the same property. Dark Star Cabin is in the heart of some of the best mountain biking in the northeastern USA. Exhilarating and technical single track, flowy machine built, and mellow beginner trails can all be accessed within a short drive (or pedal!). Carse Hills, Sleepy Hollow, Cochran’s/Richmond Mountain Trails, and Hinesburg Town Forest are all within a 10 – 15 minute drive. Perry Hill (Waterbury, VT) and Saxon Hill (Essex, VT) are 30 minutes away, and Stowe’s trails are a 50 minute drive. If downhill mountain biking is your thing, Killington’s bike park is great and is a 90 minute drive. Hike the trails all around the cabin or head to the Camel’s Hump hiking trail heads (Burrows Trail and Forest City Trail are a 10 minute drive). Burlington is just 35 minutes from Huntington.

Winter: Dark Star Cabin is located in the heart of the Camel’s Hump Nordic Ski Area trails and is approximately 100′ from Section 20 of the Catamount Trail, Vermont’s 300-mile long ski trail running from Canada to Massachusetts. Once on the Catamount Trail, you can head north or south to explore the surrounding area. There is also some outstanding backcountry skiing and split-boarding accessible from the cabin around Camel's Hump and Mt. Ethan Allen (this is a short drive to the trail head).
