Cabins & Cottages in Vermont State Parks

Wondering if there is an alternative to campsites and lean-to style shelters in Vermont State Parks? Well, there is! For those seeking something other than the traditional camping experience but want to retain the rustic setting, Vermont State Parks offer several choices.

Cabins are rustic one-room structures that come semi-furnished and can be rented on a nightly basis. We’re pleased to announce that state parks throughout Vermont now offer 27 cabins for rent. Cabins come equipped with sleeping space for 4 people--a fold-out couch or futon and a set of bunk beds. There’s an indoor table with chairs, screened and secure windows and doors, and a front porch. Cabins have electricity to provide lights and an outlet for convenience, cooking is done outside and smoking and pets are not allowed. Occupants supply linens or sleeping bags. Cabins are situated close to campground restroom and shower facilities for convenience. Most units provide universal access. Cabin sites are designed to accommodate a maximum of 4 occupants, with space for a tent or small RV. You can find rental cabins at Brighton, Ricker Pond, Lake Carmi, Grand Isle, Half Moon Pond, Gifford Woods and Wilgus State Parks. They can be booked on a nightly basis (if reserving, minimum period is required).

Still looking for more comforts? Try a state park cottage- self-sufficient weekly rental units set aside from camping areas, in their own unique settings. They come fully furnished with sleeping space for 6; standard accommodation is usually a full size bed, a set of bunks, and a pull-out sofa. Cottages have fully equipped kitchens with fridge/freezer, all cooking utensils, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker. The living area is furnished with sofa chairs, and dining table. All cottages include their own bathroom with shower. Cottages have porches where you can sit, relax and take in the scenery. Units providing universal access are available. All cottages have electric or gas heat. The only things you’ll have to bring are linens, food, and a long list of area attractions to check out! Some cottages even come with their own canoes!

Rental cottages are available for a 3 night minimum stay from park opening to June 15 and, at some parks, from Labor Day to Columbus Day. From June 15 to Labor Day, they are rented on a weekly basis from Saturday to Saturday. Special refund and cancellation policies apply. Cottages are located at Crystal Lake, Ricker Pond, Camp Plymouth, Half Moon Pond, Shaftsbury and Branbury State Parks.

If either of these options sounds good to you, book your stay today! Units are popular and can fill up quickly.
