Homeaway offers a great low cost property damage protection. You pay only $59 dollars for $1500 worth of protection.
I used to do a refundable $300 security deposit, but we loose some money that way, as Homeaway takes transaction fees off the total $300.
If you really still want to do the refundable $300 security deposit, we can easily arrange that, otherwise, we will add the $59 dollars to the rental for lots of coverage.
If you are staying 7 nights/week, it is a discounted rate of 140/night. Total of $980 for the week. I also like to give discounts on additional nights added to a weekly rental. Discounts for repeat renters too! Thank you!
Policy available by contacting manager when booking.

About: This house was built by my grandparents in the 60's to retire in the peace and serenity of the Adirondacks. My grandfather loved to fish and hunt. My grandmother loved how the mountains looked different every time she looked out the window. The house was passed down to my parents and now to me. I named the 2 maple trees out front Grandma and Grandpa!
We are dedicated to making this house a comfortable and affordable gettaway.
Why Jay: We have lots of windows to enjoy the 180 degree views of the mountains, including Jay Mountain wilderness and Whiteface Mountain. There are no visible neighbors. Quiet gettaway.
Enjoy the 4 large Maple trees in the fall.
Enjoy the trails all year around.
Clean and well-maintained home.
