Cabin
Ripley Hill Cabin, our largest cabin, is located on a hill overlooking the Farm Pond, one of two swimming spots. It has a wood stove and a field-stone fireplace to warm a chilly evening. The cabin has two private bedrooms. One has a full bed and the second has a full bed and a twin bed. There is a sofa bed in the main room and a queen bed on a screened sleeping porch. The kitchen has a gas-powered refrigerator and stove as well as a sink. Hot and cold running water is available inside the cabin. Ripley Hill Cabin has an indoor bathroom with a sink, toilet, tub and shower. There is also a (very clean) outhouse, for a fun, rustic experience. Ripley Hill Cabin is a 5 minute walk from our playground and swimming pond, and a 20 minute walk to a pristine lake where guests swim and canoe.

Ripley Hill Cabin is a 5 minute walk from our playground and swimming pond, and a 20 minute walk to a pristine lake where guests swim and canoe. Trails cross the property and our resident caretakers will be happy to provide you with friendly help during your stay. Cold Spring and Ripley Hill Cabins are close together, but out of sight from each other. Rent them together for larger groups or family reunions. Forest Echo Farm in Mt. Holly, Vermont, offers an escape to the wilderness within a comfortable, rustic setting. Our three rental cabins provide you with a vacation spot amidst 400 acres of Vermont forest and meadows. Forest Echo Farm is dedicated to the simple life. No power lines cross our property, no electricity reaches our cabins. We have no screens to distract us from the sound of the wind in the leaves, no WiFi to call us back to the whirl of modern life. But that does not mean we are without any of the comforts of civilization. Each cabin has hot and cold running water, an indoor bathroom, a gas stove for cooking, gas lights and even a propane-powered refrigerator. The cabins are rustic, but clean and airy. The luxuries at Forest Echo Farm are not inside the cabins; they are found in the light that fills the forest in late afternoon, the silence of an evening canoe ride and the moonlit sparkle of dewdrops at midnight. Forest Echo Farm includes an extensive shore to a 26 acre protected pond, numerous trails, and half a mountain top. We do get cell phone reception, so you can still make dinner reservations. • Please note that there is no electricity or WiFi at any of the cabins. Everything is gas, wood, or hand powered. There is cell phone reception. • Each cabin has a fully equipped kitchen, hot and cold running water, indoor bathroom, and overhead LP gas lamps. • Bring your own bed linens, blankets, towels and food. • No housekeeping, please leave a clean cabin for the next guests. Cabins are available for rent from June 1 to October 5. More

About the neighborhood
During your stay at Forest Echo, enjoy walking, hiking, bird-watching, canoeing, swimming, and playing on the swing set or just relaxing. There are hiking and walking trails right on the property. The Farm Pond is a great spot for a refreshing swim. Tiny Pond, really a large lake, offers a secluded spot for swimming and canoeing; we even have a resident heron. The surrounding area is chock full of restaurants, antique stores, country stores, bakeries, farm stands, bike rentals, local theater and festivals, general shopping historic sites and scenic drives. The Crowley Cheese shop is nearby and worth a visit. Shaw's supermarket is located in Ludlow, 11 miles from Forest Echo. The Appalachian and Long Trails are within a 45-minute drive.
