It's a great place for most kids but not for rough-housing indoors or chocolate ice cream on the $9,000 Roche Bobois sofa in the living room. There are antiques but nothing so perfect and priceless it can't be touched....moreless

Another very basic activity for us: Reading and reading in the hammock. I have some of my best books there -- WS Merwin's new collected poems which are great by the way and hundreds of other tomes.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I am a writer/contributing editor to New England Home Magazine, living in Lexington, MA. My wife Valery Rockwell (above) is a psychotherapist in private practice. In her spare time she gardens and paints. She fell in love with the house long before we bought it as a summer retreat. Now that our daughters are grown up enough to have outside interests not involving idyllic stays in the Green Mountains, we just haven't been able to go up there as much. We still love every inch of the place. We hope you do, too!
Why the Owner Chose Jamaica, VT, USA:
I like the fact that it is in a village. A city boy at heart, it makes me a little nervous being out in the middle of nowhere, or what I consider the middle of nowhere. I like having neighbors and I like to walk places. I also like the fact that the house is very old, but very tight and very clean and sunny and there's a brook outside. The lawn is the biggest in town, and the apple orchard I planted on the property looks promising. Hiking to the waterfalls is another thing we do from time to time.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
We all like the State Park for its kayak festivals and rail to trail biking and very clean beach. Valery and I joined the Stratton Health Club and have also discovered the Ball Mountain Dam about 2 minutes from us up RTE 30 -- What huge vistas! (And a back entrance to the Park -- no charge)
