Crosset Hill LodgeConveniently located just off route 100 between Stowe, Sugarbush, and Mad River Glen in a pristine forest setting, the Lodge consists of two separate units, the Loft and the Lair. At five miles from the Heady Topper brewery and Ben & Jerry's factory, and three miles from Amtrak and Interstate 89, the Lodge is easy to get to and easy to visit.

The Lair unit sleeps five in two bedrooms with two full baths, kitchenette, dining area, patio, and a 300 square foot living room. With 12-foot ceilings, knotty pine walls, stone fireplace, and big windows overlooking the forest, you find yourself in a ski lodge, not a condo.

The Loft unit sleeps six in two open loft bedrooms and a cozy library. It includes a full kitchen, two full baths, 800 square foot living-dining area, 18-foot ceilings, huge stone fireplace and cantilevered deck.

The Lodge was completely renovated in 2014, and offers hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on premises, with equipment available. High-speed internet and dry firewood are provided. No smoking, no pets. Children welcome. Friendly, occasionally intelligent, and sometimes helpful owners often live in the loft unit.
