Jim and Kathi were wonderful hosts and accommodated us on short notice. Very responsive and most helpful when it came to finding a local breakfast spot.
– Julie, Sugarhouse, November 2023
Beautiful property and accessible location. Jim was communicative and checked in with us frequently. Would definitely consider staying here next time!
– Philip, October, 2023
Nestled in the woods
Jim’s place was perfect for a weekend at the height of fall foliage in Vermont. In fact, it was nestled in the woods, where the tree colors were right there outside the window. Peaceful. Well-appointed use of a compact space. And Jim was responsive, friendly and answered our questions even though he was traveling himself. I highly recommend this spot and Jim as a host.
– Linda, Sugarhouse, October 2023
Secluded, peaceful lodge
My family and I enjoyed every minute we spent in this secluded, peaceful lodge. The furniture arrangement around the big fireplace set us up for an evening of banter and reminiscences we’ll treasure forever, and the big table was perfect for helping us to organize our excursions and play boardgames. The lighting was superb throughout, with dimmers judiciously clustered to make it easy to accommodate separate pursuits, like games, reading and conversations simultaneously. The decor enhanced our stay immensely. I’ll leave it to future guests to discover their own Lodge surprises, but a place which promts me to discuss celestial navigation, Rudyard Kipling, the tuning of mountain dulcimers, and how to decline Latin nouns with my kids in one evening is likely to be a smashing success for anyone! If the opportunity arises, we will come again! Note: Follow Jim’s well-written advice for lighting the fire. I’ve lit hundreds, but I learned something new this time and I’ll stick with it! Thanks!
– Jim, Loft, October 2023
We loved our time here
Jim was a great host with exceptional communication. Beautiful remote cabin in the woods, but not too far from town. We loved our time here and the beautiful fall colors. The morning walk on the property was very beautiful and relaxing. Loved finding the Hobbit house! Jim gave great restaurant recommendations. It was a great drive for our day in Stowe also. I would highly recommend his place to anyone!
– Deborah, Sugarhouse, October 2023
Sunlight and Fully Stocked
The owners were great and communicated checkin process and helpful with having recommendations. The pictures online don’t show how great the place is with lots of sunlight and fully stocked place. Definitely will be back.
– Michelle, Terraces, October, 2023
Clean and Cofmortable
Jim’s place is great. Very personable host. Unit is just as described. Very clean and quite comfortable. Convenient location for travelers seeking to hit different spots in Vermont. We did two days in Burlington and one in Stowe. We plan to return for another stay. Verdant views in all directions when driving in and out.
-Jeremy, August 2023
What an excellent experience! The apartment was so cozy and we felt right at home. Everything was totally spotless, the hosts provided lots of nice amenities like laundry detergent, and the place had the right combination of privacy and quaintness I enjoy in rural Vermont along with modern touches (like the mini split AC that kept us cool despite the summer heat/humidity). Great experience overall. Would definitely come back!
– Garrett, July 2023
Our Favorite Destination
This is our third stay at Crossett Lodge. It continues to be one of our favorite destinations in Vermont. Beautiful open floor plan. Spectacular views off the back deck. Their home is immaculate and always a pleasure to stay in. Easy drive to Waterbury and Stowe. Several great restaurants and craft beer bars in the area. We’re already planning our next trip to Crossett Lodge.
– Dan & Ellen, June, 2023
I had the pleasure of staying at the Crossett Hill Lodge last weekend for a UVM graduation, and it turned out to be a delightful experience. The lodge deserves a solid five-star rating for its beautiful location and charming Vermont-like amenities. Nestled amidst breathtaking landscapes, the lodge’s location was a true highlight. The serene and picturesque setting provided a perfect backdrop for relaxation. The check-in process was a breeze, with a straightforward code entry. We opted for the loft unit, which instantly made us feel at home. The cozy ambiance and well-maintained facilities added to our overall comfort. The amenities were great, with the availability of fireplaces and a woodstove adding a cozy charm that would be perfect for winter visits. The host was attentive and readily available to assist us whenever needed, ensuring a pleasant stay. The overall atmosphere of the Crossett Hill Lodge exuded a warm log cabin cottage feel, with modern comfort.
– Andrew, May 2023
Very nice and cozy place. Clean and well maintained. Great host. Would love to go there again in the future.
– Yudong, March, 2023
It was a pleasure to stay in Kathi and Jim’s home. Although we hadn’t realized it was their primary residence, we couldn’t have felt more at home while enjoying our time off the slopes of Mt Stowe. Their home is beautifully appointed and large enough to accomodate our entire group of 6 without feeling cramped. Their belongings, momentos, and family photos add lovely personality and did not feel overbearing or awkward. We’re looking forward to renting the entire property for our next trip and explore more of Vermont! Cheers,
– Robert, February, 2023
Clean and Beautiful
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Our vehicle got stuck on the icy hill leading up to the property on our way there, and Jim came down to assist us. He was kind and jovial, keeping the mood cheerful and my children giggling as he got our vehicle moving. The property itself was clean and beautiful, and very spacious for our family of 7. They had a variety of games, books and seasonal activities available for our enjoyment. We would definitely recommend staying here, and look forward to returning in the future.
– Adam, February 2023
Great place for families
Our stay in the loft unit at Crossett Hill lodge was fantastic! Jim and Kathi are the nicest hosts and were super helpful and responsive to any needs or questions. The house was clean & cozy, beds were comfy and shower pressure was excellent. The kitchen had all the necessities. There was even a chest filled with toys that our 7 year old really enjoyed. They have sleds and lots of other outdoor gear you can use for winter activities on the property. This is a great place for families to stay and it’s in a safe area. Waterbury town center is conveniently nearby and has a handful of restaurants and a grocery store. We skied at Stowe and the drive was an easy 35 minutes. I would definitely stay here again!
– Carrie, Loft, February 2023
We had a great stay – we especially enjoyed using the wood stove! Jim was communicative and a great host.
– Darien, Loft, February 2023
Cozy and Relaxing
What a quiet and private little spot! Perfect for a couple. Super cozy and relaxing after a long day of snowshoeing. Bonus is that it’s so close to great spots to eat and have a delicious craft beer. Will definitely stay here again!
– Cass, Sugarhouse, February 2023
A great Vermont experience for the family!
Stayed with my family of 5. We really enjoyed the property and the hosts were always available if we had any questions. A great Vermont experience for the family!
-Dennis, January 2023
Great Place to Relax
This location was perfect for our ski weekend at Sugarbush & Stowe! It was located roughly 30 minutes from each mountain with plenty of great shops, breweries and restaurants along the way. And, a great place to relax after a long day of skiing with the wood stove, outside fire pit, etc. Jim was very responsive during our time and answered any questions we had.
– Kristin, February 2023
Great stay at Crossett Hill! The weather did not cooperate but we still enjoyed our visit. Good location and well appointed with everything we needed. The wood stove is definitely a bonus.
– Mike, January 2023
We enjoyed our stay in the studio apartment! Perfect getaway to find some snow!
– Kristie, Sugarhouse, December 2022
If you are looking for a romantic getaway this is the place. Amazing location, 10 minute drive away from town with awesome restaurants and even fun bars. We went snowshoeing right off the property.
– Peter, Sugarhouse, December 2022
Warm and Welcoming
The lodge was so warm and welcoming it was like visiting a family members house. The area was quiet and the view on the deck is incredible. The owner was very attentive and provides a lot of information of what to do or where to go if you’re having a hard time deciding.
– Elizabeth, October 2022
Very comfortable stay
Beautiful lodge and location! Very comfortable stay. Great communication with Jim. We enjoyed our stay and would book again, and stay longer!
– Reagan, October 2022
We arrived after dark and drove up the long bumpy road, a little nervously, but the crossed skis on the tree very clearly marked the driveway to the house, and the motion detector turned on lights as we drove up. We were completely surprised by how amazing the house is inside — it looked great in the Vrbo listing, but is even nicer in reality. Completely well equipped, beautiful views on all sides, mattresses and pillows were comfy, we couldn’t have hoped for better in any way! The owner was easy to reach and made sure we had all we needed.
– Gail, October 2022
|Spacious and comfortable|
Wonderful spot to stay, everything was better than expected. Jim was a
great communicator and their home is really lovely, spacious and
– Katie, October 2022
Absolutely Love It!!
Our second stay at the Crossett Hill Lodge. Absolutely love it !!! The home is stunning with a great open floor plan. You can get lost for hours enjoying the view off the back deck. Easy drive to Waterbury, Montpelier, and Waitsfield. Great food and VT beer within a short drive. Already discussing our next visit here.
– Dan and Ellen, August, 2022
Great Place to Stay
Pictures don’t do the space justice – this was a great place to stay for over a week. Jim and Kathi were very responsive. Hiking around the property was fun, and it’s only a 5-10 minute drive from the town of Waterbury which has everything you need.
– Benjamin, August 2022
We Loved Our Trip
The property was great! Everything was exactly as described and even better. We all slept well and enjoyed the cool air and quiet environment. The owners are very friendly and helpful and we loved our trip. The EV charging was also very much appreciated. Thank you for a fantastic stay.
– Richard, August 2022
|Great for Families|
Great communication and instructions. Great for families. Loved the location and easy access to many interesting things. Definitely recommend! Also recommend PK Coffee, which we really enjoyed for our morning addiction.
– Betsy, July 2022
|Une Semaine de Bonheur|
Nous avons eu une semaine de bonheur et repos sur ce site. La maison est remarquablement bien tenue. La Connexion Internet est très bonne et on y trouve plus d’une dizaine de jeux. Les enfants ont beaucoup pratiqué le jeu de la balançoire. Les propriétaires ont été disponibles chaque fois qu’ils étaient sollicités. Merci beaucoup à eux !
– Nantlan, July 2022
|A Lovely Place|
Jim & Kathi are just wonderful! We were able to meet them when renting their home. It is a lovely place! Be aware that you are just renting a portion of the home, but it’s still TONS better than a hotel. Especially for the price. This is a nice quiet setting to enjoy the beautiful views of the Vermont mountains. We highly recommend it!
– Julie, July 2022
Quick and painless
This was a quick and painless process. The owner was there when we arrived. Very quick tour and we were on our own. Left us his cell number for emergencies. Property was amazing, clean and well kept. I recommend for anyone looking for peace and quiet and solitude but with amenities to explore if you would like.
– Dan, July 2022
Such a cute place! So convenient to the highway, shopping, restaurants, and activities. Plenty of space for four women who don’t pack lightly. Adequate kitchen supplies to cook several meals. We apprciated the “no shoes inside” rule (=clean), as well as access to the washer/dryer and large refrigerator. The owners communicate well and even stopped by to welcome us. They left us a bottle of wine and personalized syrup to help us celebrate our 50th birthdays. Would definitely book again!
– Jill, June, 2022
Roomy and Comfortable
|Jim and Kathy were super helpful. The space was excellent. Very roomy and comfortable. Jim and Kathy were available, but also gave us our privacy. We really enjoyed our stay.|
– Suzanne, May 2022
Had a great two-night stay. Excellent hosts who gave us local restaurant suggestions and even surprised us was with some homemade bread.
– Teresa and Josh – March 2022
Stay was Perfect
Jim was super responsive and made us comfortable throughout the stay. We had a snow storm in the area and it was hard for us to get food. Jim helped us out with food supplies and muffins for breakfast. Stay was perfect! About 30-40 mins from the slopes, close to restaurants and bars and can easily house 4-5 people.
– Kuldeep, February 2022
Plenty of Space
We had a lovely time staying at The Terraces. We were visiting friends in Waterbury, five minutes away, and did day trips to Burlington, Stowe, and Barre. It is a great location for quiet woods with close proximity to the neighboring towns. We had plenty of space to spread out with three adults and a four year old. Amenities were ample and hosts were kind and very accommodating.
– Liz, February 2022
We had such a great time staying at the Crossett Hill Lodge. Jim and Kathi were wonderful hosts, and the Terraces unit where we stayed was so cozy. Well appointed, spacious and clean, and with that wonderful cabin feel. It was lovely to wake up in the morning and see the snow-covered mountain through the large window wall, and at night we lit the wood stove and played games with our kids. The kids loved sled riding down the hill and making a snow man in the yard — our only regret is that we didn’t have time to stay longer! We will be back next winter for sure.
– Kristin, February 2022
Kind and Welcoming
They were so kind and very welcoming while also being super respectful of our space while we were there. He took the time to show us the ins and outs of the house as well as provided a really well put together guide in case we wanted more privacy or needed to refer back to how things worked like the heating or lights. Everything was very clean and comfortable. I definitely plan on going back to ski more and stay with them again!
– Michael, February 2022
Warm and comforting
The hosts were amazing. The facility was warm and comforting (good wifi too) on one of the coldest weekends of the year. Plenty of firewood. They even offered use of their many pairs of cross-country skis. So much fun. My boys loved it too.
– Mike, January 2022
Magical view, stellar accommodations, great location.
– Glenn, October 2021
Truly a Gem
The house is truly a gem and is looks much better than in the pictures. It’s roomy, cozy, has everything you’ll need. The property is split into two units, the Loft and the Terraces. We stayed in the Terraces in June, while the lovely owners were in the Loft, and hardly heard any noise from them. The place stayed quite cool despite weather in the 90s. The owners were very responsive (replaced a shower rod in a few hours), gave great recommendations and are just the most interesting and genuinely lovely people you’d meet. The closest towns to get supplies and food are 10-15 minutes away, Waterbury and Waitsfield. Burlington (lake-side, biking trails, restaurants) is 30 minutes, while Stowe (covered bridges, biking trails, restaurants, breweries, Von Trapp) is 20 minutes away. It’s a great location if you were looking to be in the middle of the said towns. Would recommend this property and you should ask of the owner’s other properties in Elmore and France (near Bordeaux).
– Victor, June 2021
This was our first experience with an Airbnb and it was wonderful! Jim was very responsive right from the start and helped us through the process. The chalet was in a beautiful setting and Kathi was a great host. All the rooms were clean and cozy, and there was plenty of space for the three people in our family. It was great having a separate room in which to keep our hiking shoes and other outdoor equipment. We highly recommend it and look forward to returning one day.
– Michelle, June 2021
Our family of five stayed on the bottom floor of this lodge in the forest of Duxbury. It is quiet and remote while being just five minutes from the interstate and tourist destinations. The house was clean and open. There were games and puzzles and kid-sized furniture. All the kids studied remotely for the week, and the internet was more than strong enough to handle three simultaneous video calls. Jim was very responsive. He provided clear instructions and offered us ideas for things to do during our stay. Highly recommend.
Jim’s place was perfect. The hosts are incredibly welcoming and the accommodations were above expectation. Beautiful, comfortable and clean. Very unique and well designed layout. We will definitely be back!
– Virginia, May 2021
Great location. Property is clean and modern with great amenities. Good setting for a family.
– Richard, February, 2021
Nestled in the Woods
Very nice home nestled in the woods. Perfect winter stay with plenty of room, wood burning stove and snow shoes, tubes for sledding and cross country skis all for our use. The owners were so nice and they gave us some maple syrup they harvested on their property. Wonderful weekend!
– Keith, February, 2021
Secluded and Cozy
Jim’s place is great – secluded and cozy, but close enough to Waterbury and some great ski areas. I was very impressed with Jim’s hospitality and communication. I would happily stay here again!
– Devon, February, 2021
Cozy and Inviting
Jim’s place was cozy and inviting. It was a truly lovely environment for kicking back and relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed using the fire pit outside while we drank some local beers, cooked up dinner, and gazed at the stars. Convenient base location for exploring Stowe, Waterbury, etc. Really appreciated the quick response time and great communication. 🙂
– Lauren, August 2020
The Terraces of the Crossett Hill Lodge were perfect for our family vacation to Northern Vermont. We truly had a relaxing place to get away and from which to base our hiking and exploring adventures. We’d definitely book and stay again. Waterbury and Stowe are short, easy drives from the lodge.
– Bill from Wisconsin
One of our all-time favorite Airbnb experiences. This house is gorgeous and impeccably clean. The architecture and design of the house is beautiful, with great open floor plan. House is very quiet, with beautiful sunset views over the western mountains. 15 minutes to Waitsfield, 10 minutes to Waterbury., 20 min to Sugarbush and Mad River Glen. Plenty of foot and bike trails in the area. Never wanted to leave the view from the back deck. Will definitely stay again.
– Dan from New York, June, 2020
Wonderful and relaxing
We were a family of seven with kids staying over for three days in the Loft area of the lodge. The Loft itself is a piece of art and comfortably accommodated us all. It had everything we could imagine and was our home away from home. It is also at a prime location near many famous attractions like Ben and Jerry’s. All the attractions my family wanted to visit were quite near the lodge. Jim was available for all our questions and needs. He also gave us helpful suggestions on making the most of our trip when we planned our itinerary. In conclusion, it was a wonderful and relaxing trip for all my family members from the young to the old spanning from ages of two to sixty five years of age.
– Sana from New Jersey
Super location, open airy floor plan. Very responsive owners! Gorgeous part of the country .
– Graham from Jamaica
Great place perfect location. Great communication with Jim he answered all my questions and offered many suggestions for places to go and things to do. Would definitely come back. looking forward to renting again in the winter for a ski trip.
– Jareem from New Jersey
Great Ski Weekend
Jim has exceptional communication and he has a lovely home! It was charming, and warm; a perfect fit for a ski weekend! We also were able to see a few types of birds, including a woodpecker, in the bird feeder which was fun! The two sofa beds are chair futons that fold out into two single twin-sized beds which is to note if you are traveling with more than two couples. All the amenities were great! We had a great ski weekend and we were able to watch the football game while there was a fire burning, which was very enjoyable! I would definitely recommend this home!
– Rebecca from Massachusetts, January 2019
Perfect for our vacation
Close to Stowe and Waterbury. The owners lent us skis, snowshoes and other items. More like staying with family than strangers. Even had us up for a nightcap.
Ed and Family from Georgia, December 27, 2018
Beautiful, quiet retreat in Vermont
Crossett Hill Lodge is just a lovely open-space design. Quiet, peaceful, exceptionally clean with a well-appointed kitchen. Perfect for a family get away whether skiing, hiking or just relaxing. Close to downhill mountains and cross x ski if the snow/weather cooperates, but lovely to spend time in and enjoy the space with family regardless. Great get away for our family after the Christmas hubbub. Highly recommended. Thanks for listing it!
Pat from Massachusetts, December 27, 2018
Charming loft unit made for some beautiful family memories.
My family and I stayed in the Loft unit and were thoroughly impressed. The home was lovely, Jim and Kathi had a warm fire going upon our arrival and were friendly and accommodating. The open floor plan allows for family bonding and the location of the property is ideal for skiing. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend the Crossett Hill Lodge to others!
Kathleen Mullins, Connecticut
Jim was easy to contact. His place is set in the forest, which this time of year was gorgeous with all the colours. We we’re very comfortable, not far from shops 10 min drive. Clean place with everything you need to cook up a meal. Thank you.
This house is fantastic. If you rent it, you will be positively surprised by its beauty and by the location. I especially recommend it to families with children. And Jim is a great host: he was very responsive, accommodating and flexible with us.
– Alberto from Italy
Cozy and Happy

Winter Ski Family Getaway
Oh my we loved it! We had such a great time. Your home is beautiful, so well planned, decorated and organized. We took in some local dining at Blue Stone, walked the backyard trail and went into Burlington too for Friday evening of dinner and entertainment, then out to skiing Mt Ellen and Mt Lincoln on Sat. & Sun. The location is great, very convenient to the highway and attractions. We will definitely return and recommend Crossett Hill Lodge to our friends and family!
- Karen &Tim Fuller Columbus Ohio 2/2016
The house is located well. It is close to the interstate and close to Waterbury. It is convenient to Stowe, Sugarbush, Mad River Glen, or Bolton Valley. It is clean and comfortable. There is an abundance of good firewood and a robust wood stove. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped. The owners are very gracious and were responsive when we needed help or had questions. Verizon wireless reception was not great but the texts worked and the owners texted right back. I would definitely come back to this property.
Great place, peaceful and relaxing
We had a great time at this property, logistics to check in and check out were very straight forward, the location is great, super chill setup. Would definitely consider coming back!
We had a great weekend at the Terraces. The owners were very accommodating and the location was perfect for the beer tour we were doing. The space was newly renovated and clean.
This property was near all our favorite restaurants and bars/breweries. We enjoyed walking on the trails during the day and star-gazing at night. The architecture of the building was spectacular and Jim and Kathi were such wonderful people. We would definitely return.
Property went above and beyond expectations, definitely recommend and will be a repeat customer in the future. Owners were very responsive for all questions and the listing had everything we envisioned and more.
I stayed at the property for a long weekend with friends. The entire experience went above and beyond our expectations in terms of amenities, accommodations, cleanliness and owner responsiveness. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and will make this my go to place for staying in Vermont!
Wonderful weekend…even without snow!
We spent a relaxing VT weekend at this cozy lodge. Perfect balance of “down home” VT charm and modern conveniences. We took in the shops of Montpelier and Waterbury in lieu of skiing. Loved it!
Cozy getaway in a great location
Super comfortable digs – clean, spacious, big windows with beautiful views and fireplace. Location was super close to town and within striking distance of great restaurants, hikes, and breweries. Jim and Kathi are highly responsive and care about making your stay as comfortable as possible. We look forward to returning!
|We enjoyed our short stay in the lodge and the genuine feeling of welcome from Jim and Kathi. Appropriately decorated for the holidays, we felt at home with the fire and open plan arrangement of the upper level. |
– Mike and Family, December 2019
| Plenty of Room |
We stayed in the Loft for a long weekend ski trip. There was plenty of room and it was comfortable. We cooked breakfast and dinner each day and the kitchen was very well equipped having everything we needed and then some. There was an abundance of firewood stacked outside so there was no concern of running out. We skied at Mad River which was an easy drive but Sugarbush and Stowe are close by as well. Jim was quick to answer any questions I had and provided all the details we needed to know about the home and the surrounding area.
Katherine – January 17, 2020
|Perfect ski trip weekend|
Thanks Jim and Kathi for a great weekend! The house has everything we’d need for an awesome ski trip. The location couldn’t be more convenient. The décor was very chic and the kitchen was well stocked. It was so lovely sitting near the fire sipping drinks après ski. We will be back!
