PITTSFIELD—New for this season, the Vermont Huts Association has announced that the Shrek’s Mountaintop Stone Hut will be joining its network of seven huts across Vermont.
The cabin, which sleeps two to four and is located on the summit of a small mountain in the Green Mountain Trails network in Pittsfield, features a wood stove, fire pits and views.
Located just off 25 miles of flowy mountain bike trails on property owned by Spartan Race founder Joe DeSena, the stone cabin is a short half-mile hike or skin up from the closest trailhead. Reservations for the 2020 season will open by the end of 2019. Located between Killington and Rochester, the hut could serve as a stopover on the proposed Velomont trail, a route that would eventually link trails from Killington to Stowe.
The cost to book Shrek’s Mountaintop Stone Hut (via vermonthuts.org) is $65 a night.
“We’re also exploring the idea of locating a hut or yurt somewhere on Bolton Valley’s property and, possibly, another one in Huntington,” said RJ Thompson, executive director for Vermont Huts. “It’s exciting to witness the new energy and creative thinking up there at Bolton Valley. If a hut makes sense for all parties involved, we’ll do our best to make it happen,” added Thompson.
