The cabin is decorated with vintage and antique pieces from local antique stores, and Paris flea market finds. The master bedroom is equipped with queen sized bed, sitting area, TV and private deck.The sleeping loft with full-sized bed is accessed by a ladder in the living area, and is a big favorite of older kids.

The kitchen is fully equipped for a cook, the cupboards filled with games and travel information, the cabin outfitted with cozy robes, wifi, cable and smart TV to stream your favorite movies and television shows, and in the winter a fire awaits you in the wood stove - all that is required is a match.

“Wonderful Stay at Goldilocks Cabin”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2016

My wife and I had a great time in Stowe (5 nights) and enjoyed our Goldilocks cabin immensely. To paraphrase my wife it was the nicest cabin she had ever stayed in, and I agree. Very roomy and a comfortable feeling. Jill has provided many thoughtful amenities such as flashlights, guidebooks and kitchen staples. The location is great as you're minutes away from the Stowe village but able to avoid the dense traffic there. Her instructions were very clear and Jill was readily available for any questions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cabin to others

“Everything and more”

Reviewed 31 May 2016

I spent memorial day weekend at Goldilocks with my girlfriend and dog. The pet-friendly nature of the rental was what originally enticed us, but it's far from the only aspect of my rental experience that will motivate me to rent this property in the future. Saying the location is ideal would be an understatement as it's convenient, about a minute drive, from Main Street but also provides a sense of rustic privacy. It's well appointed with all the amenities we could have asked for, and lavish decor gives it a real sense of character. Considering the price and all the positives of the experience overall, we're sure to frequent this property again in the future.

“This Will Definitely be my Come Back To Cottage.”

Reviewed 16 May 2016

This April my husband decided to take me for a getaway trip up to Stowe. We both looked at properties and when we saw Goldilocks, our minds were made up. So true to the pictures it was incredibly beautifully decorated yet cozy, had all the amenities we could every want and was private too. We grabbed our favorite books, poured a glass of wine and never wanted to leave this charming oasis. We even cooked a lovely meal in the well stocked kitchen after some long on some trails. Stowe is a charming town and truly lives up to its wonderful press coverage. Jill was an absolute delight to work with and provided us with real inside scoop information about the area. We truly did not want to leave but plan on coming back this summer. In fact, we have decided to book a trip for everyone of the four seasons. We had a wonderful and restful time.

“Wonderful Stowe Cabin”

Reviewed 8 May 2016

Wonderful Cabin in Stowe! Just a quick moment and you are down town for breakfast or dinner... and the mountain biking is some of the best- you haven’t lived till you ride Flo at the Cady’s Fall’s bike trail. Goldilock’s Cabin is beautifully decorated, cosy and quiet. Jill pointed us in the direction of great restaurants in the area and suggested a terrific swimming hole! We have stayed in summer and in the off season (everything is open the only difference is off season is QUIET- which we love)! We are two mountain bikers and have stayed at the cabin over the years- sometimes with other couples- plenty of room.

This is an extraordinary cabin, bar none! My family enjoyed this amazing vacation home tremendously. Everything was immaculate and perfect - the space, the loft layout, the details of the furniture, amenities (toothbrushes were provided can you imagine that?), location and romantic surroundings! I brought guests from overseas and they were super delighted and impressed with their stay too. Jill, the owner was also fantastic. She was not only very responsive but also ensured that the needs of her guests are satisfactorily met. I don't usually write reviews but for this stay, I intend to provide my 2 thumbs up here and on other websites! Don't miss this magical cabin!!

This is my second stay at this wonderful property in beautiful Stowe. And I can promise you that I will visit again and again and again. Jill has thought of every single thing from the cozy decor, the fully stocked kitchen to the pot belly stove fully set for a fire to snuggle by. She truly has thought of everything even setting out a culinary welcome basket. Some of the best nights sleep I have had in a long time. Not a sound to be heard except for the twinkling of the stars. 5 stars for sure. Cindy Charleston SC

Hi Jill, thank you so much for everything. Beth and I absolutely loved our stay. She kept commenting how stocked with everything we needed your cottage was. Perfect, in a word. It was hard to leave, but we had to get to her daughter's field hockey game at New England College in NH before heading home to New Jersey. I've been coming to the Stowe area every year since my first stay back in '93, when I got a tiny room at Nicholls lodge. I just love the area in general, but to compliment it with such a cozy and comfortable place to stay was even better. Thank you again and hopefully we can have a longer stay next time around.

This is the first time we have stayed at the Goldilocks Cabin! What a beautiful place. Starting with the cabin which took our breath away, to the town of Stowe. Lot of hiking opportunities, amazing restaurants, friendly people, there was always something to do and we enjoyed every minute of it. And, pets welcome!! My dog loved her stay as well, and I enjoyed the tired dog :-). We will definitely be back for more, three nights stay definitely was not enough! The owner is very friendly and is always in touch if any questions and such arise. Thank you, what a wonderful place!

Goldilocks Cottage was everything that was describe on the site. It was very clean, decorated with beautiful antiques, which were complimented with modern amenities. It was conveniently close to the town, shopping and activities. After a long day of sightseeing, it was nice to come back and relax in a place that felt like home. Jill checked in to make sure everything was fine, which was a lovely touch. We will definitely will come back again.

Relaxing Retreat

Date of Stay
August 1, 2015

After having to drive from Newark, NJ all night because of United Airlines' inability to properly staff their plane, resulting in a cancelled flight, we finally arrived at Goldilocks in desperate need of rest. The cabin was our sanctuary for a week as our family of four explored much of Vermont. The cabin is very well decorated and is larger than the photos appear, with little corners and alcoves where people can get away to read or have quiet time while still being in the presence of the rest of the family. The location is ideal as it is close enough to Stowe and the surrounding attractions to give quick access, yet you have the felling of a simpler, rural lifestyle to settle you after a hectic day. The owner was readily available via email and responsive at all times which was especially important for us as our plans evolved due to the canceled flight matter. though a great place to stay any time of the year, I would love to visit again during the fall colors or winter sports seasons...the wood stove just beckons to be fired up! Overall, the place was clean, inviting, and worth the money...I would stay again, should my travels take me back to Stowe.

An idyllic cottage close to many attractions
(Listing 312906)
Date of Stay

Goldilocks Cottage is the idyllic cottage in the woods, so aptly named you expect three steaming bowls of porridge awaiting arrival, there may not be the three bears...but what you do have is a perfect lodge with a wood burning stove you wish for snow. We arrived however, for summer walking and adventure making the cottage a great retreat and base. When we wanted, Stowe with its village charm, provided superb food in a choice of restaurants and delicious ice cream. The surrounding area is of great beauty. We took the cable car up to Mansfield Mountain and ate a great lunch while looking upon the valley below. . If you are brave enough you can take the zip wire back down. Ice Skated in the indoor arena. Visited the Von Trapp Hotel resisted the urge to sing. Saw the amazing balloon show. Took the breathtaking toll road and walked the mountain ridge. Took a horse ride at the local ranch. Visited the waterfalls and swam in ice blue rivers where the rocks were formed thousands on years ago and took what almost seemed a pilgrimage to Sterling Pond. The journey is so worth it and you must take a dip. The whole area is teeming with natural wonder...Smugglers notch is a must. You can be as strenuous as you wish. The cottage is beautifully designed and decorated and must be a wonder in the winter. It has a great entrance where you can leave all your boots and ski gear. Its great for families as there is bed settee in the large bedroom which can enable everyone to sleep together of you so wish. You may not see a bear but if you're lucky enough deer will come into the garden. A special treat, just like Goldilocks.

We just finished our first visit to the Stowe, VT area. The cabin is located very near town, but far enough away to give it that 'just right' rural getaway feel. We were able to both jog and hike directly from the cabin on the local roads and trails...very convenient! The inside of the cabin is as advertised...all the needed amenities tastefully decorated in local antique flavor. We highly recommend a visit to this area during the Summer season. Staying at Goldilocks will enhance your visit!

Goldilocks was so charming and beautifully decorated. It is conveniently close to downtown Stowe and many activities.

Goldilock's Cabin Surpassed Expectations

Date of Stay

If you are looking for a comfortable cabin with all amenities; in a very quiet location (not isolated though) and with loads of activities for the more adventurous; then you couldn't do any better than Goldilocks Cabin. The road directions were perfect and we found the cabin very easily. The first sighting of Goldilocks Cabin lived up to all anticipated expectations; lights on and welcoming; very warm and cosy when we got in. Wifi was good; mobile phone connection not so good - you have to find the right spot in the cabin to get reception! (A wonderful reason for no one being able to contact you!) The kitchen was very well equipped with everything most people on vacation would need. Always loads of hot water for showers. Plenty of towels for guests to use. However, maybe a couple more robes would be useful as the cabin sleeps four/five? The washhouse with the washing machine and tumble dryer was always warm for drying and keeping ski boots warm. The first morning we woke up to a huge dump of snow overnight and we were very impressed with the contractor arriving to clear the snow off the drive :-) So no worries about being snowbound if you stay here. The only improvement could possibly be slightly brighter lighting for those who like to read at night? Stowe is a wonderful village with some good stores to explore. Plenty of excellent restaurants to choose from eg Gracie's. Peace Pups for dog sledding.Cross country skiing at the Trapp Family Lodge; Skiing at Mt Mansfield; Snowmobile with Umiak. We would definitely visit again and also at a time of year when there is no snow and experience the wonderful countryside hiking or doing water activities. Thank you Jill for allowing us to make use of your wonderful cabin.

The Goldilocks Cabin is both rustic and sophisticated-country-style, very relaxing and ideal for a couple. The property description is accurate and the cabin's kitchen is well equipped if you choose to dine in. Also, it is an easy drive to Stowe Resort for skiing and activities plus a variety of restaurants can be found just down the road. Owner Jill is easy to communicate with and provided specific details along the way making the rental transaction a success.

My husband and I have been going to Stowe for 15 years together and we have stayed in most of the nice resorts/hotels as well as a couple private homes. Goldilocks ranks at the very top! It was super comfortable, fully loaded kitchen with nice pans to cook in, which is a treat since most rentals don't offer much. Additionally you are so close to the center of Stowe but you still get the feeling of being out in the woods, so its the perfect combination. Don't hesitate staying in this home, we will definitely be back. Have fun, Michael

Fabulous Fall Holiday at Goldilocks Cabin, Stowe

My Mum, sister and I booked this gorgeous cabin for our two week holiday to Stowe. It was perfect! Very pretty and beautifully decorated. It was cosy and welcoming, with a huge vase of flowers. We spent a lot of time just hanging out there...reading, sketching and painting, so we can definitely recomend it to everyone. We spent our two weeks exploring the village, which we loved, and many of the wonderful places up alongside the ski road/mountain road. Places that we kept going back to include: McCarthy's (breakfast is amazing!!!), Cold Hollow Cider Mill (hot apple cider and cinnamon donuts are gorgeous), Harrisons (for our 'posh' meals out!!), Spruce Peak hotel + the gondola ride, Von Trapp Resort's bakery/deli, and definitely the spa at Stoweflake!!!

Very Clean and Homey Property

This is a nice cabin about 1.5 miles East of downtown Stowe area. Things we liked: Clean, comfortable, WiFi (worked after I rebooted the router), washer/dryer, lots of kitchen items incl. coffee! It is a little less remote than the picture portrays - about 100 ft from the road and a house on adjoining lot (but still quiet and somewhat secluded). Owner is great with commutations - but would be nice to have a detailed map for the 1-2 mile surrounding area. Minor improvements: Better toiletries, newer TV in living room, remove a few knickknacks for more shelf and top of dresser space (especially in bathroom).

My Response:
So Glad you enjoyed your stay. I just wanted to let you know that I am updating the cabin with a smart TV in November, so guests can stream their favorite movies and TV shows. So, Goldiocks is working its way to the 21st century! Hope you'll come back and give it a try.
