A Cozy Woodland Fairy Tale in a Vermont Cottage

By • May 15, 2017

Designed by the architectural firm Designed by the architectural firm HGA Architects and Engineers, this cottage was conceived in order to host musicians spending the summer in rural Marlboro, Vermont, USA. The Marlboro Music Cottages are located on the 500-acre (202-hectare) campus of Marlboro College, tucked into the foothills of Vermont’s Green Mountains.

The Marlboro College campus has hosted Marlboro Music, a seven-week summer festival for Young musicians to collaborate with more experienced ones, since 1951.

Practically hidden in the trees of a cedar forest, which give it privacy while at the same time protecting it from the direct rays of the sun, this wonderful cottage and its beautiful surroundings seem to be drawn out of a fairy tale.
