What kinds of accommodations does Sterling Ridge provide?

Sterling Ridge has something for everyone: cute, cozy studio cabins for couples or lone travelers, one-bedroom units for a romantic getaway, two- and three-bedroom cabins for families, and larger units for luxury experiences and large groups. About half of our units are dog-friendly, allowing you to enjoy your vacation with your furry family member!  

Each cabin has its own private fire pit for marshmallow-roasting, a covered porch to enjoy your morning coffee, and a woodstove, gas log stove, or fireplace to cuddle up by at the end of the day. Guests can explore our several walking trails, outdoor pool, game room, and a large pond for paddling and fishing. 

While you may not want to leave the comfort of your cabin, Burlington and Stowe are each less than an hour away, so you can easily find adventures!

Can you describe your Field & Stream Dream cabin? 

Our Field & Stream Dream Cabin is exactly that - a dream. This gorgeous two-bedroom, two and a half-bathroom custom log home was built for Field & Stream Magazine and featured in their February 2007 issue. In addition to the beautiful nature-themed decor, the cabin has a spacious living room and kitchen, loft, jetted-tub in the master bath, a two-story stone fireplace, two TVs, and free WiFi, making it an unmatched luxury cabin for couples, small groups, or small families.

What does hosting a wedding at Sterling Ridge look like?

We offer two standard wedding packages that include the site fee and two nights of lodging in the Mansfield House (sleeps 14), with our larger package including two nights of lodging in our Pond House as well (sleeps 10). When you book a wedding with us, Cabins 1 - 6 are also blocked off for you (sleeping roughly 20-30 additional guests). Couples and their guests appreciate the convenience of staying on site for the celebration!

The staff at Sterling Ridge provides support throughout the planning process to make sure the couple and their vendors have what they need. We recommend trusted vendors, including event planners and day-of-coordinators, and are happy to provide suggestions about local attractions.

All receptions are held on a large, rolling lawn behind the Mansfield House, adjacent to a green pasture. The site can fit a tent for up to 200 people. Some couples choose to host their ceremony here with views of the mountains in the background. We also offer a ceremony site near our large pond with spectacular views of Mt. Mansfield's peak. 

How does Sterling Ridge help turn what can be a one-day party into an all-weekend celebration with friends/family? 

At Sterling Ridge, couples are encouraged to make their wedding a weekend affair! Many couples host welcome parties at the resort, so everyone staying on-site can get together, rather than a traditional rehearsal dinner with just their wedding party. Many of our outdoorsy, adventurous couples choose Sterling Ridge because of the may activities and adventures they can participate in with their guests, such as group hikes or brewery tours. The day after the wedding, many guests like to have a casual brunch on the property. All together, the resort provides many opportunities for couples to spend quality time with their guests. 

Couples tell us they love the convenience of the location and the feel of the property - it's the perfect setting to hang out and enjoy each other's company! With a wedding going by so fast, couples say they're grateful to have had the whole weekend to get a chance to talk to all their guests and thank them for being a part of their special celebration. 

In conclusion, "At Sterling Ridge guests not only feel like they are attending a wedding, but also like they are enjoying a little vacation - because they are!" says Kirstin. "It's a unique experience."
