Nestled on 86 secluded acres in the Green Mountains, the Adirondack style Moose Meadow Lodge in Waterbury, Vermont invites you to enjoy a Vermont lodge experience. Make yourselves at home and enjoy the peace and serenity of our secluded property. With four luxury guest rooms and a magical treehouse, the property provides mountain views, a hot tub, hiking trails, a trout pond, and the Sky Loft - a glass-enclosed gazebo at the highest point of the property with unparalleled panoramic views. A Vermont log cabin like no other, the Moose Meadow Lodge is close to Vermont's most popular attractions, including Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream factory, and the ski resorts of Stowe, Sugarbush, Bolton, and Mad River Glen. The friendly village of Waterbury, New England's best craft beer town, is only three miles away. Whether you love skiing, hiking, snowmobiling, biking, hunting, fishing, antiquing, fine dining, the arts, or simply getting some rest, the Moose Meadow Lodge is a perfect location to do everything or nothing at all. The Moose Meadow Lodge and Treehouse can accommodate up to 12 people, which makes it a perfect setting for a family reunion, wedding or vacation rental with friends.
Willie Docto and Greg Trulson are committed to providing a comfortable, fun, and make-yourself-at-home atmosphere at the Moose Meadow Lodge. The two met in 1992 at a log home B&B in the mountains of West Virginia and have stayed at many B&Bs and log lodges ever since. In 1996, these former Washingtonians moved to Vermont to pursue their dream of owning a B&B. They bought a single-family home on 86 acres, and after a couple of years of research, planning, fishing, hunting and renovating, they opened the Moose Meadow Lodge in October of 1998.
Willie is the Lodge's Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Housekeeping. Greg is the Vice President of the Lobby Shop, Chief Facilities Manager, and Concierge. He'll tell you what to see and where to go (but be sure to ask Willie for the correct directions). Without full-time employees, they end up directing each other.
In addition to innkeeping, Willie owns the only association management company in Vermont and produces festivals, concerts and events. He is also a freelance classical violinist, performing in orchestras in Vermont and Washington, DC. Greg is a former computer systems architect and trainer. He is an accomplished woodworker who created many of the furnishings and rustic decorations in the Lodge. His twig furniture and other works are made with wood from the property. His creations have been commissioned by people from as far as Maryland and Puerto Rico.
Both are very involved with the community. Willie was appointed by Gov. Peter Shumlin and reappointed by Gov. Phil Scott to serve on the Vermont Travel & Recreation Council. He is founder of the Vermont Gay Tourism Association, and the Eleva Chamber Players. He also plays violin in the Vermont Philharmonic and was a member of the Montpelier Chamber Orchestra. He is also Past President of the Waterbury Tourism Council.
Greg is Treasurer of the Eleva Chamber Players and is an elected Justice of the Peace, and for many years served on the Duxbury Cemetery Commission. Greg officiates at weddings and civil marriages at the Lodge and throughout the state.
Willie and Greg were named Vermont's "B&B INNKEEPERS OF THE YEAR" in 2005 by the Vermont Lodging & Restaurant Association.
