The vibe at Shelter in the Woods of Vermont
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Tim was a very gracious host - he made arrangements for us to have firewood, provided maps of the local area with some great hiking, and was able to provide some extras such as a canoe and life jackets. The site itself is also great - very private, two great structures, and fun dock on the lake. We had a great time and highly recommend!
This was just such a lovely camping site. Tim was a helpful host who made sure to give concise and easy to follow directions. The hike in was lush and easy to navigate as well as well-maintained. The camp itself is on private conservation lands with lots of wildlife. We saw otters swimming nearby and made friends with a duck! The site was fully stocked with firewood, canoes, life jackets, chairs, tables plus lots of lake sports extras!
The site is extraordinarily secluded and the views are done zero justice by photographs alone. I cannot express enough what an awesome site this is! I fully recommend you check it out.
This site was truly beautiful. It wasnt just a location, it was an experience. To even just get to the site is a mile long hike through a beautiful Vermont forest. The trail leading to the site has a few small creeks running underneath the pathway. When you finally arrive at the camp site you are welcomed by a breathtaking view of the lake. The site has a wonderful firepit built directly next to a massive boulder. Its the perfect sitting area on the cooler evenings. During our stay we encountered all types of wildlife and critters. We stayed here for two nights and wished we had more time to stay at this prime example of hike-in camping. I plan on coming back for a return trip.
Tim's site was a great little sanctuary. The hike in was easy. The shelter was perfect and very well built. We got to see many critters during our short stay and it was really cool to hear the different owls at night. We hung out hammocks in the trees on the property and the view was amazing. Tim was a great host and the communication was quick and precise. He had firewood ready for our arrival and let us use one of the canoes during our stay. The lake is beautiful and peaceful, especially in the morning just as the sun comes up. Gorgeous sunrise right from the site. I recommend bug spray as the skeeters were hungry during our hike on the way to and from the car. Definitely a great place to take it all in and enjoy the serenity. Highly recommend Tim's site.
Tim’s was a communicative and helpful host who gave perfect directions to his private conservation forest.
The hike to the campsite was lush, but simple to follow and well maintained.
The campsite itself is gorgeous and was also inpeccibly clean. The shelters are stocked with firewood, fishing poles and all the supplies you’d need to enjoy a day in the lake! Canoes were provided and the trees had an ideal set-up for hammock camping.
The lovely site is only made more georgeous by the views of The Green Mountains surrounding you and Lake Raponda’s sparkling clean water. If you enjoy wildlife this is your spot! We saw otters, frogs, some very cool bugs and even had a duck friend (we called him Wadsworth) who hung out the entire three days we spent there.
This place is a treasure. Do yourself a favor and check it out!
This place went beyond expectations. Private and serene on a beautiful lake with a well maintained campsite and lean to. Set up our hammock, had breakfast and dinner right on the lake, coffee on the canoes in the morning and an evening ride before s’mores by the campfire. Tim was a easy to communicate with and the site was easy to get to. Thanks to the Gores for preserving a beautiful piece of land and sharing it with us.
