Welcoming pet-friendly cabin in Green Mountain Nat'l Forest

Family-friendly cabin in Ripton
Open year round, Robert Frost Mountain Cabins offers 7 fully furnished, artisan-crafted timber frame cabins at a picturesque & secluded setting in the Green Mtn National Forest. It's a getaway of rustic charm and contemporary comforts!

Cabin #5 - Owl's Branch says "woodsy" both inside and out. It's the perfect choice for a camping experience without giving up comfort or convenience.

In our common area, a.k.a. The Loft, you'll have access to DVD's, books, games, satellite TV, exercise equipment, trail maps/guides and area information. We also invite you to explore and enjoy our trails, campfire pit, berry bushes, raised strawberry beds, frog pond and sledding hill.
After a day of exploring, our outdoor hot tub overlooking the Green Mountains soothes your tired muscles and is open 24x7.
Complimentary laundry facilities, just a short walk from your cabin, are always accessible.
In addition:
- Free wi-fi is available in your cabin and common areas.
- Firewood is complimentary and plentiful.
- Charcoal grills are located at each cabin and a gas grill is always ready for a group
- Complimentary snowshoes and sleds are available in a variety of sizes and styles.

Nestled on 112 acres in the Green Mountain National Forest, Robert Frost Mountain Cabins are located “off the beaten path” on a well maintained gravel road in quaint Ripton, VT - summer home of renowned poet, Robert Frost. Our half mile long driveway is just long enough to leave your cares behind. The cabins are also just a short drive from the beautiful village of Middlebury (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) - home to Middlebury College. The college's downtown and Bread Loaf campuses are both less than 10 miles away. And the town has something for everybody - museums, historic sites, restaurants, music, art, shopping, Tasting Trail, hiking trails and more. For outdoor enthusiasts, nearby trails, ski centers, rivers and lakes offer an abundance of fun recreational opportunities throughout the year.

We live on the property and will be here to make sure that all of your needs are met. Forgot charcoal? We've got it. Want help choosing a hiking trail? We're happy to give you first hand advice. Looking for a place to get local meats or produce? We know the best places! But we also respect your privacy and recognize that you may just be here for peace and quiet, solitude or quality time together. We won't be offended if you just want time alone.

Please note that the 37" TVs in the cabins are provided for DVD viewing. The TV in our common area, The Loft, has satellite reception and DVR service.

Our well insulated cabins have been designed with energy efficiency in mind and will keep you toasty in the winter. Thanks to mountain elevation and breezes, summer temperatures on our property are typically very comfortable and allow you to enjoy the fresh air. On the rare occasion when we experience extreme high temperatures, AC units can be installed in your cabin.

Our pet fee is just $15/night for each pet (2 pet maximum).
If you'd like a pet-free cabin, please search for either our Peak Perspective, Sunrise Vista, Blackberry Bend or Evening Star cabins.

Amazing Romantic Getaway
We loved staying at Marty & Carol's special place in Vermont. We could tell as soon as we arrived how much care & attention to detail went into making the property. A few tips: -Save the google map journey & details about the reservation (your cabin number) before you depart. We lost signal right after entering Ripton. -The hot tub is shared between all 7 cabins. We got lucky and were able to use it a couple times, but others were waiting on us to leave. -If you love movies, the loft has an extensive selection of DVDs! We brought a chromecast and were able to stream our favorite movies that way. -There is a sledding hill & sleds! We had so much fun sledding together-- we felt like kids again! Thank you Carol & Marty for hosting us, we had such a great time and will definitely be coming back!

A Quiet Getaway
It was my boyfriends 24th birthday so i surprised him with a weekend get away in the woods! Marty and Carol made him a customized Happy Birthday sign that sat at the end of the driveway so that was a nice surprise. This place really is WAY in the woods which was perfect. Our first night in the cabin was amazing everything was really clean and cozy. The town to get food isn't too far maybe about 15 mins. The next morning of your stay Carol makes homemade cinnatwists that are delivered to your door, they are to die for. The cabin offers a lot of things to do on the property such as snowshoeing and the hot tub and a loft area with games and such. My only complaint is when booking i thought that each cabin had their own hot tub which is not the case. There is a shared hot tub with all the cabins that are renting. (6) total i think. Not a huge deal but something to keep in mind while booking, Overall it was a really good stay and would still recommend!
