REUSED TREASURES – The hardwood flooring is reclaimed wood from a barn in Vermont. The spiral staircase leading to the sleeping loft is also a salvage find.

Over the river and through the woods lies a cozy New England hideaway. During the winter, owners Eric and Phiona Milano traverse Vermont’s deep and drifted snow to get there, accompanied by their little boy, Franco. The journey takes about an hour from their home on Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vt., to the northern tip of the Green Mountain National Forest. Only instead of a horse-drawn sleigh, the Milanos load provisions for their stay onto a horsepowered one.
