Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The Sheep Shack is located in bucolic Arlington VT. Originally built as an actual sheep shack, it was later converted into a hunting cabin and then to its current state - a family vacation cabin. The two bedroom cabin is situated on 36 acres of working maple farm and directly across the road from the Battenkill River. Enjoy the river views and gentle sounds, take a hike on the one mile nature walk behind the cabin, build a campfire and relax into Vermont.

The space
We lovingly restored this family cabin last year and are excited to share it with other families. It is set up for couples or families of up to 5 people. It is not a good house for groups of adults or parties.
The main bedroom has a Casper king size bed and the kid room has bunk beds and a crib with an optional trundle. We have outfitted the Sheep Shack with most things needed for traveling with kids - dishes, a changing table, toys, books, a high chair, booster seat, swing set and Hatch sound machine. Feel free to ask about specific things and we will do our best to accommodate.
Please note that there is no bathtub, but there is a large sink for baby baths.
There is a fully fenced yard with a swing set, a fire pit, a patio for outdoor dining and a 1 mile nature trail that is marked.
There is no direct river access as we are across the road from the Battenkill, but plenty of places to drive to to have some river fun. You can see and hear the river from the cabin.
