Montgomery Center cabin description

Sheady Acres is a 25 acre slice of heaven halfway between Jay Peak and Montgomery Center. Our hilltop Southern exposure gives us one of the best sunsets in town, as well as maximum light for one of the many activities we offer. There is an eighteen-hole disc golf course on property. Cross-country skiing, hiking, swimming and world-class mountain and road biking are right outside your door. Jay Peak offers a championship eighteen-hole golf course, and the deepest powder skiing on the east coast. Jay Peak has also just the largest indoor water park in the norhteast and a full size hockey-skating rink. Ask us about discounted ski passes. The Vast Trail has an access in town, 3 miles away, and 2 miles further down the road is another access with parking. You will not run out of things to do, no matter the duration of your stay.

The Sugarhouse at Sheady Acres: Sheady Acres is at the gateway to one of the most unspoiled areas in the country, The Northeast Kingdom. Although there are many activities in the area, the main attraction continues to be the great expanses of natural habitat that exist in the region. Jay Peak Ski Area is five miles up the road and Stowe, Burlington and Montreal are all under one and a half hours away. Our Cottages were designed with the savvy traveler in mind. They are outfitted with a fridge/freezer, convection oven, microwave and full compliment of dishware and kitchen amenities. All Cottages have natural Queen size New Englander pillow top mattresses, flat screen satellite television, and wireless internet. On demand hot water, and adjustable propane heat will keep you warm on those cold north country nights. Locally owned and operated, your hosts are knowledgeable about all things Vermont. These cottages have been a labor of love, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we have.

“The Sugarhouse” is our ode to Vermont, complete with a beautiful claw foot bathtub (with shower) and vaulted ceiling, designed from a traditional Vermont sugarhouse. The smell of the local white cedar interior is as sweet as any grade of syrup. The Sugarhouse is also the “greenest” of our cottages, utilizing almost all local and recycled materials. A pine plank breakfast nook, spalted maple trim, and marble corner sink to name a few. This versatile cottage will accomodate everyone from honeymooners to lovers of white powder days.

What to bring: Think motel without the shared wall space. We provide bedding, towels, etc. Don’t forget your camera and recreational toys.

How to get here: We are located on VT Route 242 exactly three miles from Montgomery Center. After you pass the Belfry Restaurant (if it is possible), we are 0.7 miles on the right. Coming from Jay Peak we are about five miles on your left.

Please contact us for information on our other properties, our 'pet friendly' Carribean Cottage, Irish Farm House and Adobe cottages and the Teahouse Pagoda (not pet friendly). Thank You!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Sheady Acres started over 15 years ago when I purchased 25 acres of prime meadow and woodlands on Rte 242 in Montgomery Center, Vermont. A treehouse was my first endeavor where I lived for a few years with my dog. The West was calling my name, however, so I spent a few winters in Winter Park, Co and Jackson Hole, WY always returning in the spring to my first love, Vermont. My wife and I met in Winter Park, and we’ve been married for over 6 years. We have a home that I built on Sheady Acres that we share with our daughter and our playful companions Daisy and Kitty. I’ve been in the carpentry/construction business for over 15 years. I dabble with pencil drawings and started focusing on cottages that I could design and build myself and rent to visitors who come to the Jay Peak Area. Having traveled to different parts of the world, I was inspired to create The Sugar House which is pure Vermont, the Caribbe which is my interpretation of the Caribbean cottage and the Tea House which is my take on the Japanese Pagoda. The Farmhouse will be number four and the Irish cottages I saw in County Cork certainly influenced its design. My wife decorated the interiors to enhance the individual flavors of each cottage so your experience will continue as you open the door and head inside. Sheady Acres Cottages have been a labor of love and an expression of creativity that we sincerely hope will be shared by those who come and visit us. Give us a try. We look forward to hearing from you.

Why the Owner Chose Montgomery Center:
I chose to build a vacation rental in Montgomery Center, Vt because I grew up in this area and love Vermont. Watching the bikers soar down the hill from Jay Peak and the skiers go by on those powder days, I got the feeling that there are many people who would love an alternative type of property to rent while on vacation; a place with its own character and uniqueness, a place different from any other they've ever stayed at. Nearby are mountain bike trails, a golf course, the Long Trail (hiking), incredible sunsets, a ski area and a disc golf couse on site. It's the perfect place to have a vacation! We donate a percentage of our profits to the local animal shelter.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
There is a very popular restaurant and bar within walking distance of our property, about 1/2 mile downhill. Jay Brook is a small hike behind the cottage where one can go on a hot day to cool off. Check out our Pet Friendly cottages the Caribbean, Adobe and Irish Farm House . We guarantee your dog will love this place as much as you will. In the winter you will have access to acres of snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. We have added a beautiful gazebo that one finds by following a stone path into the woods. A hot tub awaits the tired skiers, bikers, riders, hikers and those who just want to sit back and gaze at the stars.
