"My family and I rented this amazing home for a long-weekend getaway. Let me just say - the pictures do not do it justice. It is an absolutely stunning place to stay. It was everything we wanted our "Vermont Country Home" to be. The large kitchen (with all new appliances) and open floor plan allowed my husband and I to cook dinner while we entertained our guests. Afterwards, we all enjoyed relaxing by the fireplace - and all the wood we needed was ready for us, including extra on the screened-in porch.
The upstairs master bedroom also has a futon for extra sleeping space and there is AMPLE storage space for clothes, equipment, etc in all rooms. The upstairs master bathroom - with an awesome steam shower and soaking tub - were just what we needed to relax after a day of skiing.
You will need an AWD/4WD vehicle to access the property in the winter and spring. The road leading to the driveway is not paved - nor is the driveway itself. (But, really, I think unpaved roads outnumber paved roads in Vermont!)
The home is only about a 5-10 minute drive from Stratton and maybe 15 - 20 minutes to Mt. Snow. We skied almost every day we were there.
I cannot wait to rent this lovely home again next season!"

"Perfect stay. I always dreamed of living on an Island but my dreams didn't include such palatial digs! This place was wonderful. I loved exploring the island. The history of the nearby town of Jamaica was also fun to explore. Karen (owner of grocer in Jamaica) helped put together the historical societies Jamaica Walking Tour book. She is a interesting story teller and knowledgable historian. The Jamaica State Park was beautiful. Never really needed to use the car (although I did) because the local scene was so rich. I loved learning about the Nearings from a local Jamaican and visiting the Nearings "starter home" which was a summer home of one of my greatest friends. Thanks. Your house was idyllic and in an idyllic place.
And now a list of special features we enjoyed: The wonderful river that roared after a good rain and gave us all restful sleeps, the shuffle board table was the best we ever played on, the pool table and downstairs bar were slick, The beds were cozy with nice fluffy duvets, each room was quiet, the big family table was great for family gabbing, the weber grill, the outdoor swimming hole, the fire-pit with tons of firewood. The great kitchen that accommodated multiple chefs. Thanks Very Much"

"Our group of several adults and a few children stayed at this house for presidents day weekend and we had a great time. When we arrived the house was very well prepared and among the cleanest houses we've rented before. Great, spacious kitchen was our main hangout spot and has pretty much everything you need for cooking some nice meals for the group. Bedrooms are also nice and comfortable with clean sheets, towels, etc. The owner Rick is very friendly and easy to work with, I would definitely look to rent this house again on my next Stratton visit."

"My family of 4 stayed at Valery and Louis' house for a second time. It's a cozy, sweet old house that really feels like home. The owners are very accessible and responsive and the caretaker is right down the street and always available if there are issues. The house has a lot of character and was a perfect place to call home while we skied and snowboarded at Stratton."
