The house feature that guests love most is the full-size 4 person Jacuzzi hot tub. We guarantee you'll indulge, be it summer or winter! Dry off in the Finnish sauna or make it steamy while ladling cool water over hot rocks. The adjacent exercise room includes a NordicTracK elliptical and a rowing machine for those looking for a workout.

The space
The SunCottage is a unique property located in the village of South Woodstock, Vermont. One bedroom, one bath home perfect for a couple looking for a private, quiet escape amid streams, fields and woods. Newly built in 2018, the Scandinavian design is simple and natural. It's a geothermal home with all its electricity and heat generated from the sun and earth. There are three floors: an upstairs TV room; a main floor with kitchen, living, bed and bathroom; and a downstairs exercise room with hot tub and sauna. Outside there are hiking paths, a stone patio, bridges over streams and waterfalls. A large firepit on the hilltop is unlike anything you have ever seen.

A sun-tracking solar array allows the SunCottage to produce more electricity than it consumes, and in certain seasons we store the excess energy in two Tesla batteries or sell it back to the grid! Triple-glazed windows, 12 inch thick walls, and a Trombe bottlewall in the basement are just a few of the elements that make the SunCottage one of the most sustainable homes in the Green Mountains.

The cottage is uphill and across the street from our home, on the same 4 acre property. But your privacy and enjoyment are our primary concern, so it's doubtful you'll even see your neighbors.

FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN and DINING AREA

Our kitchen is beautifully appointed with leathered granite countertops and a Zen backsplash. All new Bosch and Blomberg appliances that are energy-efficient and completely modern. It’s fully-equipped with everything you’ll need, even a lobster pot! The Wolf Induction range top is state-of-the-art. Coffee? We have two coffeemakers, the Bonavita which makes the best java you can find outside of your local coffeeshop. There’s also a mini-Keurig for those who want to get up and at ‘em. Plenty of pots, pans, dishware and silverware so you don’t have to spend your time washing between meals. There’s an electric teapot, microwave and a toaster oven, too. (No full-size oven, that wouldn’t be energy efficient!) There are plenty of extras, such as cleaning products, trash bags, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, sugar and Stevia. Your fridge comes stocked with Sip of Sunshine IPA, Vermont Farmstead Cheese and fresh Vermont milk for your coffee in the morning.!

The dining area features a custom-designed Walnut table with 4 comfortable padded walnut chairs.

READING ROOM

The reading room looks out on the green roof, which, in the warmer months, is alive with wildflowers, birds and bees. There’s a comfortable sofa, and two sitting chairs with a uniquely slim reading light. The small Thomas Moser table is a stunning piece. The Enviro pellet stove can warm up the room quickly if you need it! All in all, a great place for a stretching out with a good book.

Location

Woodstock, Vermont, United States

It’s a 300 yard walk to the Kedron Valley Inn’s Pond where you can go for an easy swim or relax by the water. (Pond pass included). The Inn's Ransom Tavern offers fantastic artisanal pizza and a well-stocked bar with local craft brews and whiskeys. And if you’d like some breakfast or lunch or just need some coffee and milk there's the excellent South Woodstock Country Store a bit beyond the Pond. The SunCottage is located on a dirt road off-the-beaten path but close enough to be a part of things. A perfect base for hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and just a ten minute drive from the historic village of Woodstock with its ski slopes, golf course, shops and incomparable restaurants. Less than ½ hour drive to the Killington Gondola, and 36 minutes to Hanover and Dartmouth College.

I live in South Woodstock, Vermont across the quiet dirt road from the SunCottage. Though I hope you'll never see me or my wife, Jess, since we want you to have the utmost in privacy during your visit. I have been involved in vacation rentals for 25 years when my partner and I used early desktop publishing to create two rental magazines: Vermont Rentals & the Cape and Island Rental Guide. With the advent of the internet we put our listings online, creating the world's first vacation rental site on the internet: CyberRentals which eventually evolved into AirBnB's major competitor. I have two grown sons, who both like to travel as much as their mom and I. Our next trip is to Paris, Fountainebleu and Flanders. Can't wait! Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about the SunCottage, South Woodstock or our local area.
