Rupert, Vermont
Beautiful and private Vermont getaway on 17 acres of woods and fields. Spring is in the air and blooms are on the fruit trees. You will be greeted by colorful flowers and the birds will herald the morning sunrise. There is a slate patio with a barbeque, outside table and chairs, stone benches and a covered porch with a great view (and smaller barbeque, incase it should rain), there is even a hammock on the porch. Inside you will find a complete kitchen, along with all the pots, pans and utensils to make a simple snack or a fantastic feast. There will even be some breakfast fixings in the refrigerator and cereal in the cabinets. Living room and dining room are on the first floor, along with an amazing fireplace, for romantic evenings and an even more unique and amazing bathroom that opens onto a smaller porch, for an inside/outside...

Booked Rik’s cabin for a girls weekend away. The cabin is very unique and fun place to unwind. Perfect place to explore God’s beautiful creation or just stay inside by the “flintstone fireplace” playing games, reading, drinking and laughing until you cry. The flue on the fireplace is a bit tricky. Rik did show us how to work it when...

I cannot say enough about this cabin. It is the perfect place for a Vermont getaway! I have rented many cabins and this one exceeds all expectations. Rik, the owner (and builder), is the perfect host. He met us upon arrival with fresh baked bread and Vermont cheese. He had great suggestions for area attractions based on our interests. He...

About the neighbourhood
The Pawlet valley (or Mettowee Valley) is a beautiful rural area that has picturesque farms with flat bottom land (along side the Mettowee River) and low forested mountains and hills along its edge. Beautiful for biking and driving, or stopping to fish (known as a challenging fly fishing river). West Pawlet is along the New York border and has a history of Slate mining from the earliest Welsh and Italian immigrants to the area. The slate was and is still used for roofing shingles, tiles and countertops. Old uses included sidewalks and house foundations....but you can learn all about it at the Slate Valley Museum. The slate quarries (mostly inactive now) make good picturesque swimming holes.. You can also partake in local food products.
