Robin Hood’s Hideout is a tiny, storybook cottage made almost entirely of architectural salvage. Cedar, walnut, carved doorknobs, stained glass and a knightly chandelier are just a few of the 30+ vintage materials that charm this little bungalow. Our place is called Havenwald, which means “haven in the woods.” Oaks, cedars, wildlife and starry skies stay here. Tranquility, respect and kindness stay here. When you stay here, we hope you’ll discover why we say at Havenwald, magic stays here!1
Wintergreen Studios built this eclectic micro cabin (less than 100 square feet) with cordwood walls from old cedar fence rails found on the land, ceiling rafters from a local woodlot, recycled glass and mirrors in the walls, reclaimed windows, door and wood stove, and slate floor tiles from an architectural salvage depot in Vermont.
We love the folding plywood bed, the charming simplicity of the tiny space, and the natural green roof!
