Comfortable House on a Private Country Pond in Stratton Vermont

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Just 1.5 miles from the Stratton Resort's base lodge, in the winter, the Cole House is available for rental year round. It is available for short stays during the warmer months and by the season during the winter.

The house sits on a quiet dead-end dirt road.


Downstairs, there is one bedroom with a queen bed and a split bath. There is a toilet and a sink in one room and a new clawfoot tub with a shower and sink in another room. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, one with two double beds and the other with one double bed. There is also a bath with a shower upstairs.

The rustic living room has a brick fireplace with an 35,000 BTU Empire propane insert and hand-hewn beams and looks out on the pond and Stratton Mountain. There is also a modern kitchen, and a laundry room with a washer and dryer. Other amenities include, a dishwasher, microwave, DVD Player, cable TV, and wireless high speed Internet. The house is heated with propane, the fuel of choice in Vermont.


Pond is three quarters of an acre in size, has a gravel base and is nine feet deep in the middle. In the summer, it is a great place to cool off or just enjoy the day. In winter, it is great for ice skating, an alternative activity.

There are many things to do in the area, from hiking along the Long Trail, to visiting Pikes Falls, taking in summer theatre, or biking or walking along the many small roads in the area. Town fairs and other local events are a pleasure to attend.

For those who want to go horse back riding or take in a round of golf in the warmer months or go skiing in the winter, the Stratton Resort is only 1.5 miles away, which means that you are only seven minutes from the base lodge. Directions: go down to the bottom of the lane, take a right, 500 feet later, take another right up Brazier's Way, the back end of the Stratton ski area access road, and five minutes later you are at the ski area. You can easily come home for lunch or run your kids up to the ski area in the morning and then come back home to do other activities such as snow shoeing or cross country skiing on the surrounding land or just sit back inside and enjoy the solitude away from the resort.

Pets & children are welcome.

About Jeremy Cole

I grew up in the Cole Cabin and the Cole House. The Stratton ski area was started by my mother, Malvine Cole, who was often called the Mother of Stratton Mountain, and a number of other people both local and from outside the state. I learned to ski on the hillside near the houses and at Stratton.

Why Jeremy Cole chose Stratton

The Cole House offers an old style of vacation that is quiet, private and away from it all in the backwoods of Vermont. For skiers, it is close to the Stratton Ski Area; it takes about seven minutes to drive to the base lodge. Its closeness means that renters can come home from the skiing for lunch or run their kids up to the mountain and then return to spend a quiet day at the house or go cross country skiing or snow shoeing in the fields and woods nearby.

The Stratton Ski Resort is a short seven minute drive away. Go to the bottom of the lane, take a right. After going 500 feet you will come to Brazier's Way, the back end of the Stratton access road. Take a right up Brazier's Way and in five minutes you will come to the road for the Sunbowl and two minutes later, the Resort. In addition to being close to the Stratton resort, the Cole House offers a pond you can skate on, and land you can go snow shoeing on. Oh yes, and it is quiet. Few cars go up and down the road. You can enjoy the winter in all its beauty and every once in while see a deer, or bear or a fox go by. In the warmer months, flower gardens dot the area. There are plenty of places to walk and the trail head for the Long Trail is a short ride away. Pikes Falls is two miles down the road.

Great for winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is in convenient location to Stratton Mountain ski area (5 -7 min drive) and Jamaica State Park (cross- country skiing and hiking even during winter time). The place is very nice and warm. It is a great place for winter vacation for anyone who likes to be outside. The owner of the place makes everything possible to make your vacation a hassle- free experience.

Cole House:

  • 5 of 5

You cant get any closer to the slopes at Stratton - right next to the access road. 5 min ride to the ticket office. Cozy house - perfect for a family of 4-5. Pot belly heater in kitchen and inset fireplace kept us all warm and toasty when it was -10 outside! Washer and dryer was very nice to use. Quiet road - not much traffic. Clean and functional place. Jeremy met us the day we arrived and helped with suggestions, etc. We enjoyed the stay!

Car: necessary

The house is located on a dead-end dirt road, so it is a get-away, but it is also very close to Stratton Mountain (you can see the mountain out your window) and only 20 minutes from Manchester, noted for good restaurants and outlet shopping. There is also a 3/4 acre private pond available on the property for swimming in the summer and ice skating in the winter. Pikes Falls is two miles down the road for cool water swimming and exploring.
