Cabin Holiday Rental
Cute little off-grid timber frame surrounded by thousands of acres of woods, streams & trails; perched on a hardwood ridge with amazing panoramic views of the valley. ATV or hike right from the cabin. Everything is sparkling clean at Moose Mountain Cabin on Skyline Ridge; the cabin is fully equipped with water, linens, towels, pots, pans, silverware, dishes, etc. Even the approach is scenic; drive to the tiny village of Andover at the end of the state highway #5. Continue north into the mountains, and the road soon turns to dirt. Drive along the babbling Sawyer Brook for another mile. Turn right just before the road turns into a snowmobile trail in rugged Notch. Wind your way up onto the ridge through a beautiful birch forest. Drive to the very end of the road and you're there!

Turn right just before the road turns into a snowmobile trail in rugged Notch. Wind your way up onto the ridge through a beautiful birch forest. Drive to the very end of the road and you're there! Settle in, enjoy the panoramic mountain view from the huge open deck under the hemlock trees. No TV, no noise, no traffic, no people. Set on the porch, sipping stove-top percolated steamy coffee. Doze off in the chaise lounge. You won't miss electricity. Snuggle by the wood stove and play checkers or read. Just you, your family, (including your pets!) and books, board games, crossword puzzles, cards, campfire, woods, streams, waterfalls, owls, turkeys, deer, moose and mountains, lots of mountains. Wander down the trail and see a moose. Find antler sheds. Snow shoe, ski, hike, bike, ATV, kayak... or... just SIT and do nothing! Wake up in the morning and enjoy the panoramic mountain view, without moving a muscle, from the huge bedroom window. Additional huge windows in the kitchen and living room assures you will not miss the gorgeous sunset from any room. Even the bathroom!! The cabin is non-electric so you can UNPLUG... no intrusions from the outside world. For your comfort and convenience, it has gas lights, a gas refrigerator/freezer, a full size gas range with oven and BBQ grill on the deck. The attached (heated!) bathroom has a clean, odor free composting toilet, seasonal gravity fed solar-heated shower and a sink. Drinking and washing water, and firewood for the wood stove are provided. There is a comfy new QUEEN bed in a private bedroom; two twin size beds in the cozy loft, window overlooking the mountains, which may be easily converted to a King! WE ARE PET FRIENDLY; do not leave Fido behind! There is plenty of room for him to run. PLEASE NOTE: We are on a hill, it provides the AWESOME view; AWD/4WD, and good tires required in winter! November through April. Expect snow, ice, mud, wind... this is an outpost! IF THERE IS NO AVAILABILITY FOR YOUR CHOSEN WEEK AT MOOSE MOUNTAIN CABIN, ASK ABOUT OUR LOG CABIN! CAMP WINONA IS LOCATED IN ANDOVER, JUST 500' BEYOND MOOSE MOUNTAIN, AT THE END OF SKYLINE TRAIL. IT HAS A DETACHED BATH HOUSE, A KING LOG BED AND FULL FUTON, GAS RANGE/OVEN, GRAVITY FED RAIN WATER SEASONAL SOLAR SHOWER AND SINKS. NEW!!!! Mountain Village Tiny House. A cute little cottage right in Andover Village, with electricity and hot running water. The Best of Both Worlds; all the recreational opportunities of the mountains, with all the amenities of home! Included with your stay is a 'playground' on the mountain; drive 5 miles north to your own remote private camp site in the birches - complete with seasonal fire pit, chairs and hammock and our infamous panoramic mountain views! Beds: 1 Queen Bed, 1 full futon. Our business is called Skyline Ridge Vacation Rentals; we own two remote off-grid cabins (This is one of them), plus our Tiny House, conveniently located in Andover Village, has electricity and running water. Skyline Ridge Vacation Rentals would like to give you the best available rate in booking this rental. Ask us how! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 1163476More
