This this such an amazing little gem of a cabin. The space is well stocked with everything you could ever need from cookware to books and card games. The cabin was clearly designed and constructed thoughtfully with a composting privy, rainwater barrel, outdoor dishwashing station, outdoor shower, a fully functional kitchen with a 2 burner cook top, comfortable beds, and more. The cabin is also peacefully and privately nestled into the woods behind the owners homestead and it is backed by preserved land with old logging roads and hiking trails to explore. The little stove inside the cabin was more than enough to take the evening chill out of the cabin with overnight temps in the mid 30s. Oma's cabin is a wonderful spot to reconnect with nature and take a break from fast-paced living. It is located close to a ton of hikes and cool place to visit and the host provides a very detailed guide and map that I highly recommend you flip through for recommendations on what to do when you arrive. You can hunker down in peace and quiet in the woods for days without seeing anybody else, or you can take off on dozens of adventures all within a <40 minute drive. We did a little bit of both, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Absolutely perfect little cabin in the woods. The wood stove keeps the loft sleeping area nice and toasty, which helped for when it started snowing unexpectedly. We'll certainly be coming back when we can.

My husband and I visited for my 30th birthday for a moment to step away from our busy life's. This cabin was amazing very clean, and all the personal touches really make you feel welcome. The surrounding area is a real beautiful place and we enjoyed exploring the property. If you get a chance definitely take the time to hike Haystack mountain trail. It was my first time completing a mountain hike, Im not in great shape and I was able to complete it even though it did take me 2 hours up and 1 back. The weather was nice so it was a great way to spend the afternoon. Erin and Phillip are so kind and we felt very welcome, the cabin is also far enough away that we were still able to feel the privacy and isolation that we enjoy about out usuaul camping trips. Having no running water didn't bother me at all, we were provided with more than we can usually bring with us. I would love to visit again when the weather warms up more and to experience the greenery. I 100% recommend this cabin, you can feel the amount of care and effort that goes into keeping it a nice space.

We stayed at the cabin for 3 nights and really enjoyed our time! The hosts provides information for many hikes (within ~45 min) and food options, including fresh meat and dairy from local farms. We loved the wood stove inside, and there is lots of firewood provided. During mid-March there was a bit of mud, but if you're wearing good boots you will be fine. Snow was clearing up and cabin stays warm at night. We already want to come back during Summer/Fall when the trees are full!

This off the grid cabin is a fun alternative to our usual tent camping. Feels like you're apart of nature, but you still have a nice roof over your head. Hosts are super nice!

Oma’s cabin was a great stay in November. Very private location. Plenty of things to do locally and not a bad drive to hit some locations further north.

This cabin in the woods is a true gem! Everything from the hand wash station to the firewood to the mini-kitchen to the local guidebook is incredibly well thought out and well done. Thanks again to Erin and her family for their generous hospitality and for maintaining this wonderful cabin, which allowed us to enjoy a beautiful fall weekend in Vermont!

This cabin exceeded my expectations. Nestled in the most beautiful nook of a pine forest it is equipped with all of the essentials for comfort in an off grid camping experience. It’s the peace and serenity you didn’t know you needed- the return to simplicity and safety while being held by the Mother. 🌍
Thank you so much Erin, for sharing your slice of Heaven ✨
