About Jan Schaefer

My husband and I love the outdoors, and we're involved in many sports. Vermont is very special to us, and we love skiing there on most winter weekends. In the summer, we're often sailing or spending time on the water with other sports. We are very grateful for our health and the ability to enjoy life, savoring every day!

Jan Schaefer purchased this house in 2000

Why Jan Schaefer chose Forest Farms

This property is very special, nestled in a wooded area with wonderful views of the mountain. We visit our house, "Mainstay," on many winter weekends and other times of the year. It's comfortable and offers a tranquil get-away. Since we use the house as our winter home, it is not a typical rental property. We've spent considerable time and money to improve the house and furnishing so we can enjoy it now and for many years to come. We hope our guests will love Mainstay as much as we do -- and care for the home in the same way they might care for their own home.

What makes this house unique

The views are spectacular from almost every room in the house. Looking at Stratton first thing in the morning is such a treat. And, at night in the winter, you can see the lights of the snow cats on the mountain. We've also seen an occasional fox (and once a moose) in the backyard. Yet, the access to the house is easy with a flat and spacious driveway...and it's just 3 miles from the mountain. What a treat to be in a fabulous, exclusive neighborhood, yet so close to Stratton.

This warm cozy home has the best view of Stratton mountain we have ever seen! It was perfect for our party. 2. Families. (4 adults. 6 kids). With 2 Masters. And 2 bunk rooms. We all had the space we needed to be only minutes from the mountain. We especially enjoyed the hot tub after our ski day. The tub sits in the perfect location to stare at the mountain and see the snow cats grooming all night! We will definitely rent this property again. Our family had a fabulous experience.
