You’ll have the cabin to yourself.
Curious about tiny houses? Or just want a sweet little place on a farm to get away from it all?

Our tiny house has a big deck with meadow and mountain views. Solar-powered, private, but easy to reach. Kitchen, full bath, sleeping loft.

Lots of fun stuff to do: World-class breweries, kayaking, local food; rural beauty year-round. Or just chill in this bright, comfy little home. Please note we don't have internet, landline, or cell coverage. You won't miss it!

The space
Good to know--Up here, our peak foliage season is late September. The colors are usually crazy! (We're not quite ready to host in the winter, but fall, spring, and summer are wonderful up here.)
Bruce built this tiny house from his own wood, using natural finishes. We've spent time in it ourselves (we live down the hill). It gets great light. You can make a cup of coffee or a real meal, take a hot shower, hang up your clothes. You can sleep comfortably, listen to owls, and if Nature calls, you just have to head down the ladder to the bathroom, not outside.

The tiny house is solar-powered and off-grid. (You'll have a propane-powered cooking stove and hot water.) Bruce loves researching and talking about solar power, so if you're interested, nab him.

The area has so many incredible breweries and distilleries I wish I drank more. Farms, local sugar makers and bakers, farmers' markets, world-class cheese, locally sourced pizza. Elegant outdoor farm dinners at our neighbors' incredible vegetable farm. Work it off kayaking right up the road or hiking and biking. Or relax and read, get caught up on conversation—out on the deck in the warmer weather, or inside.
(Please note that we don't have internet service or a landline, and cell coverage is iffy at best. We do have a Bluetooth speaker for your tunes, though.)

This is a "real" tiny house, built on a cargo trailer. It's firmly planted in its new habitat—but if you're curious about living simply and well in a home that's also portable—now's your chance.

Are you a writer? The tiny house has great writing mojo, and a drop-down table.

Guest access
Enjoy the whole tiny house, the deck, walking around the paths in our field and woods.
Please note that we're not ready to rent in the winter yet, but that's coming.

Other things to note
Bruce grew up on this farm, and goes back seven generations in Wolcott. He left the farm to study electrical engineering at the University of Vermont, worked in high tech for years in the Burlington area, and retired back to his portion of the family farm here in Wolcott. He likes doing weird stuff with technology and has always built his own homes (and the tiny house and our timberframe barn, now in progress). He loves the blues and the woods. And his tractor.
Maria grew up on a farm in New Jersey, which Vermonters make fun of. Luckily, she's from New Jersey, so she doesn't care. She was raised by Europeans. She's a nonfiction writer and also produces the Big Chew Podcast, in which she talks with guests about science, Nature, and spirituality. She's interested in permaculture and has planted a lot of edible stuff around the farm that isn't quite bearing yet. Her doofy dog, Titus, is too fast to let off leash, but you'll probably see him. He loves people.

Craftsbury, also nearby, has Sterling College, a farmers' market, and Craftsbury Outdoor Center..
Stowe, about 25 minutes' drive, has lots of restaurants and shops.
Greensboro, about 15 minutes away, is home to Hill Farmstead Brewery, whose beers are continually voted best in the world! Probably the solar system!
