Bryant Camp, Bolton
Built around 1930 and restored in 2016, Bryant Camp offers renters rustic accommodations in the backwoods of Bolton Valley, Vermont.

Please be aware, the cabin is not insulated and will never get as warm as your home. When spending a night at Bryant Camp, come prepared with the gear and sleeping bags to keep you warm as if you were camping.
