The Green Mountain Club manages rustic cabins across Vermont for rental by GMC members and the public. These cabins provide affordable lodging for families and small groups to enjoy Vermont’s world-class outdoor recreation opportunities and all the best of rustic living.
GMC’s cabins are basic with no running water, electricity, or kitchen facilities. A wood stove, cured firewood, and detached privies are available at each site. Guests are expected to bring their own bedding and sleeping pads.
Please be aware, the cabins are not insulated and will never get as warm as your home. When spending a night at a GMC cabin, come prepared with the gear and sleeping bags to keep you warm as if you were camping.

Wheeler Pond Camps
The Green Mountain Club has two cabins on the shore of Wheeler Pond located in Barton, Vermont: Hadsel-Mares Camp and Beaver Dam Camp. The cabins are near Lake Willoughby, which is at the center of the Northeast Kingdom hiking trails that cover nearly 40 miles in the area. The hiking trails offer unique cliffs and vistas, and GMC volunteers maintain the cabins and even stock the firewood. Beaver Dam Camp is currently unavailable due to renovations, but Hadsel-Mares Camp is available for rent year round.
