About Paperstock Cabin
Echo Farm, in Mt. Holly, Vermont, offers an escape to the wilderness
within a comfortable, rustic setting. Forest Echo Farm was a working
farm in the 1800s. Today,
our three rental cabins provide you with a vacation spot
amidst 400 acres of Vermont meadows and forest.
Paperstock is our most secluded and rustic cabin. It is situated at the
base of Tiny Mountain, at the end of a gravel road. Many people feel its
best features are the large, screened-in sleeping porch and the outdoor
shower. In the warm weather, these features keep you cool.
There is one double bed in a private bedroom, one queen-sized bed on the porch, and one full-size futon/couch in the main room. The cabin sleeps 6.
is equipped with a sink, gas powered refrigerator and stove, and a wood
stove. There is an open air, outdoor shower (breezy, but definitely worth it!), an
indoor bathroom, and an outhouse. Hot and cold running water is
available both inside and outside the cabin. The bathroom is equipped
with a shower, sink, and a composting toilet. . There is also an outhouse. We encourage outhouse use as much as feasible at Paperstock because the composting toilet has a small capacity.

Rustic and Comfortable Cabins
No power lines cross our property, no electricity reaches our cabins. We have no blaring screens to distract us from the sound of the wind in the leaves or to call us back to the whirl of modern life. But that does not mean we are without any of the comforts of civilization. Each cabin has hot and cold gravity-fed running water, a gas stove for cooking, gas lights and even a propane-powered refrigerator. The cabins are rustic, but clean and airy.
Forest, Meadow, Lake and Pond
The luxuries at Forest Echo Farm are not inside the cabins; they are found in the light that fills the forest in late afternoon, the silence of an evening canoe on Tiny Pond and the moonlit sparkle of dewdrops at midnight. Forest Echo Farm includes over 400 acres, extensive shore to a 26 acre protected pond, a farm pond for swimming, numerous trails, and half a mountain.
We do not offer a 'housekeeping' service, but instead ask you to clean up before your departure and leave the cabin ready for the next renters. Please clean the kitchen, sweep the floor and take your trash, compost, and recyclables to our Caretakers for disposal. They are on-site to greet you upon arrival, answer your questions and see to any maintenance. They can also make recommendations for activities in the surrounding area.
