About Diane Forester
My husband and I have owned this property since 1997. I am originally from Newtown, CT with a strong family connection to Westchester County, New York. My husband is from Reading, Pennsylvania. We have renovated this home over the last 6 years. We have had many memorable years in Jamaica. We have 2 children and presently live in Dorset, VT. I work in the medical field and my husband works in sales at a local lumber company.
Diane Forester purchased this Farmhouse in 1997
Why Diane Forester chose Jamaica
The location of our home is centered within the rural community of Jamaica. The convenience (next door) of DK's Grocery Store is an added bonus as well as the Jamaica State Park located within walking distance to our home. The local yoga center is a busy place and is walking distance as well from our home. The local community is friendly and helpful in sharing information regarding the area.

Such a great experience
Diane and her family have done an amazing job renovating and updating this VT farmhouse.
We arrived in the evening to a well lit and warm house. Our party of 7 (4 adults / 3 kids) all gushed about how nice the house was. The kitchen is well equipped, beds are very comfortable and everyone's favorite part the heated floors in the bathrooms.
The general store next to the house is such a unique place and a great resourceful. The baked goods are absolutely amazing.
Diane's a great host and this is a wonderful house, don't pass this up.
Thank you so much and I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope you come again next winter or perhaps this summer!
This is a great house for a large family or group of couples. Terrific location and lovely home.
This house was perfect for our group - we were 3 couples and a 2 singles and there was plenty of room for all of us to hangout and enjoy our vacation together. The house is well equipped (could use a few more coffee cups!) and the location is terrific. There are wonderful restaurants nearby but the store next door had anything you would want to buy to make meals at the house. We enjoyed the large dining room table for dinners and evenings playing board games. Convenient to Stratton for skiing or other adventures. This house feels like an old farmhouse - a truly authentic Vermont experience. We have stayed here for 2 years now and would stay again.
Perfect ski home!
Just returned from our second visit. Five days skiing at Stratton & the house was a perfect home base for our extended family. The general store next door made meals easy - & the fresh popcorn & local baked goods were a fun daily treat! The house was perfectly stocked with everything we could need. We loved the heated bathroom floors & beautifully updated bathrooms! Diane was a terrific and incomparable host - absolutely perfect. All in all another wonderful stay! Thank you!!
One of the best rentals we have ever stayed in. Great for a bigger group! Lots of updates and close to mount snow and Stratton. Convienent and great location. Would absolutely recommend.
Thank you Amanda! Means a lot - hope to see you again.😊�
Perfect winter getaway house!
This amazing property was the perfect house for our family getaway, there were 8 of us and it was more than enough room. Diane was a gracious host who went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible(she even went out and bought a pack and play for the baby). The house is beautiful and was in a great location that made it easy to get to both Stratton and Mt. Snow that we utilized. I highly recommend staying here and if you do there is almost nothing you would need to bring, the house has everything. Thank you Diane, we would definitely book this property again in a heartbeat.
Thank you so much. I would love to have you all return. I appreciate the positive response and hope that you return. Regards, Diane and Jake Forester
Cozy, comfortable and inviting.
Excellent location, we appreciated being next to DK's grocery and NorthCountry General as well as being easy to find. The house and driveway were well prepared for us and all went smoothly. Love the cozy and comfortable rooms and the bathrooms were modern and spacious. We felt right at home and loved every minute!
Thank you Wendy! I am glad you had an enjoyable stay and hope that you will return!
