The Perfect Cozy Cabin in the Woods: Sterling Ridge Resort in Jeffersonville, VT


One of my most memorable vacations was a three-day weekend in April 2014. It was taking a long time for Vermont to break into spring, so it was cold, wet, and perfect weather for cozying up in a cabin in the woods. I desperately wanted a retreat, so I threw Mica and my mud boots in the car and headed up to Jeffersonville for a weekend getaway in one of their romantic cabins.

My tiny studio cabin was beyond perfect for me. I absolutely loved its charm, wee gas fireplace, and just-right sized kitchen. There was also a porch for sitting outside and a fire ring. The cabin faced the woods, not the road, so I always felt like I had privacy. Plus, I had a great view out of my front door. Guess what? They even have cabins with a Jacuzzi! Swoooon.

After meeting the wonderful staff at the main lodge and chatting amiably about the amenities, I headed up to my cabin to get settled. It was so easy to get checked in, and everyone was really helpful. I unpacked, then headed back into town to get some supplies.

There was a really tiny but unique and quaint natural foods store (I found it on Facebook and they are still open!) where I got fresh foods for my stay. Loved everything about that little place. The Farm Store in Jeffersonville, VT. Back at the cabin, Mica and I (ok, just me) built a fire in the outdoor fire ring and relaxed in the Adirondack chairs as we watched the flames.
