Meadow House Retreats
Over the years Meadow-House has hosted large family reunions, getaways for groups of 3-4 families looking to share a vacation, and the mountain peace of the MH backcountry.
As a shared homestead, MH has many modern amenities and recreational equipment for guest use. Mtn. bikes, snowshoes, kayaks and fishingpoles for 1/2 acre stocked swimming pond available on request and with appropriate release forms signed.
The Meadow-House delivers a comfortable base camp for launching young ones (and those young at heart) into their next great outdoor adventure- whether it happens throughout the MH grounds or leads up into the abuting Worcester Mtn. Range State forests.
MH has hosted many college groups from Boston, Montreal, New York, New Jersey, as well as local universities here in Vermont. With roots as a ski cabin for a bunch of UVM alumn, Meadow-House is an easy fit for those looking to get away from the grind of the school year. Deep in the backcountry of some of Vermont's most pristine mountains, MH provides the space and freedom to explore the great outdoors under the stars, by the bonfire, on the roof deck, and with good friends.
Often groups of alumn looking for a reunion getaway come to the MH to unwind, let loose, and remain connected with each other. Though the atmosphere of MH has matured over the years (as have the MH caretakers to some degree), the spaces and grounds still provide an inspred backdrop for current college students to come burn the midnight oil with some great local beer and the promise of life-long friendships to come.
Located at the Waterbury trailhead access into the Worcester Mtn. Range, MH is an ideal playground for groups of hikers, Mtn. bikers, backcountry skiiers and riders of all types. From technical to flowing trails, the 5,000 acres of VT Dept. of Forests, Parks, and Recreation maintained public lands provides an ideal setting to get your groove on.
Though heading out for a sweat inducing ride might be your preference, others have enjoyed the comforts of spending a day cooking good food in the cozy warmth of a modernized cabin experience. While some guests prefer the active play at hand just steps outside the door, others find bliss in their instruments and sessing out with bands and friends in spaces designed to acoustically inspire.
Views of roughly 50 miles of the Green Mtn. Range to the West and a 360 degree panorama back around to the Worcester Mtn. range to the East helps MH guests harness their own wellspring of inspiration.
