Description of Glamping Units

The Blackberry Bend cabin, offering a quiet getaway in the Green Mountains in Addison County, Vermont, sleeps up to six glampers. One bedroom has a queen-size double, while the other is fitted with twin beds. There is a futon in the spacious living room which folds out to make a full-size bed. There is also a 37-inch flat screen LCD TV for DVD watching in the living room and a thermostat controlled gas log fireplace.

The Mayan-gold wooden paneling gives the cabin a very warm and cozy feel to it while the 36" wide window allows lots of natural light to enter throughout the day. The cabin comes with a private bathroom with a tub and a shower as well as a fully equipped kitchen that boasts a refrigerator, oven, microwave, and coffee pot.

The hosts provide toiletries, coffee, hot cocoa, and tea. Wi-Fi is also provided at no charge. The back porch has a barbecue grill and comes with patio furniture for glampers to relax and take in the forest and mountain views. Read More
