Jamaica house description

This contemporary design, cozy house sits high up in the woods on 10 acres off Pikes Falls Road between Stratton and Jamaica. It's a great location - just 3 miles from the sweet little town of Jamaica and just 4 miles from Stratton's Sunbowl access road. The kitchen has been totally renovated with granite countertops, new cabinets, etc. Close to skiing, hiking, Jamaica State Park, shopping (e.g - a great country store in Jamaica, lots of outlets in nearby Manchester), great restaurants, or just sit by the wood stove and enjoy the peaceful, secluded setting with a great view! The winter bonus is the great sledding (sleds provided!)and hiking or snowshoeing right outside your door! (Note: property is high up a beautiful country road, 4WD is usually essential in the winter.) It's a peaceful, beautiful setting to watch the snow fall, or be at the slopes in a few minutes. In the summer enjoy hiking, golfing, fishing and more nearby, including in Jamaica State Park which is just 3 miles away. A beautiful, natural swimming hole and water fall at Pikes Falls is just a couple of miles away.

The small house has three bedrooms - 2 with adjacent baths, and an additional bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds.

This house has character and most renters want to come back - try our affordable rates and see for yourself!
