Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8, with children)

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 waterfall at Pikes Falls is just a couple of miles away. We do NOT do seasonal winter rentals.

The small house has three bedrooms - 2 with adjacent baths, and an additional bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds. The bunk room is small and great for kids, but too small for 4 adults.

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

Why Maggie Groff chose Stratton Mountain Area

Jamaica is a GREAT location! Near Stratton, but avoiding the on-the-mountain crowds and cookie-cutter approach; easy drive to great restaurants and shopping; beautiful location. Calm, peaceful, secluded but accessible location.

We LOVE this place, right by Stratton Sun Bowl!

  • 5 of 5

This is a GREAT cabin in the woods...We had two families (4 adults, 3 kids) up for a long weekend of skiing and winter fun and had a blast..the photos do not do it justice...much better and bigger in person..the house is the perfect winter mountain retreat in a greatt location a short drive (3 miles) to the the town of Jamaica (general store, restaurants, shops) and the Stratton Sun Bowl (the back way 6 miles bypassing all the traffic). The owner Maggie is great and the house is filled with everything you need in the kitchen plus a bunch of sleds (we had a blast on the driveway). We are definitely renting this house again next time. Thanks Maggie!

COZY MOUNTAIN IN THE WOODS...VERY COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5

We are just finishing up our ONE MONTH stay at this property and it has been AWESOME! We are only a couple so only needed one bedroom. The house is furnished with everything you need to be comfortable. We loved the woodsy location...it is very private! A nice deck is a great place to enjoy the beautiful FALL. The owner, Maggie, was very helpful! We will definitely try to stay here again if we get the opportunity to visit Vermont!

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The house is so unique and charming with its location, wood stove, brick floors and comfortable family layout. It’s nicely decorated and the new kitchen made cooking family meals so easy. Maggie also made sure we had everything we needed (from kitchen supplies to linens to firewood.) The pictures don't do this gem justice. It was perfect for our family of four and my kids can't wait to go back. They loved exploring the woods around the house and peeking in the sap buckets. The location was convenient to Stratton and yet felt very private. Maggie was great to work with and handling the details was very easy. We’ll be back. Thanks so much Maggie!

Cozy Stratton Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time at this cozy Jamaica rental. It is very close to Stratton Mountain (just a few miles) and the house was in excellent shape. We especially enjoyed to the wood stove- it warmed the entire house quickly and created a very welcoming atmosphere. Great Price as well! Highly recommended.

Tranquil, Secluded, Affordable Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our perfect spot. We spent a month in this comfortable, secluded home. It met all our needs which are tranquility, accessibility to hiking, cultural events and a comfortable place to nest and rest. This home provides all thr joys of being in nature along with the comforts of home. Although there is access to TV and internet, we had little need of them. The house is reflects the warmth of the owners. We highly recommend this well maintained property.
