About the property

2BR, 2.5 BA home recently updated that can sleep 6-8. Very roomy, comfy w/view!


Welcome to our Green Mountain Getaway. Set on 2 acres, all behind the house, this dog friendly home features plenty of parking and easy access to Bromley and Stratton, Manchester Center, Manchester Village, Dorest, East Dorset, Arlington, Winhall and surrounding areas.

Enter the mudroom with ½ bath attached and coat closet and cupboard to store ski wear & equipment, the main living area is all open with spacious living room, loft, dining area and kitchen. The loft area overlooks the living room and is a great spot for the kids to hang out with a flat screen t.v. and an xBox 360 and games, two foam loungers that can turn into beds, queen size air mattress and sleeping bags/pillows, full bedding. The living room features hand hewn beams, rough sawn wood, and wide board floors. Brick fireplace and hearth with new, easy to use gas logs add a cozy feel with the ease and warmth of propane. Desk area for your computer, 46” flat screen t.v., DVD player and xFinity Cable which also provides high speed WIFI access. One of the couches folds out to a queen bed with a full linen set. There is a small supply of movies and board games too or listen to music on the Bose radio/CD player.

The dining area is comfortable and can seat 4-6 (extra folding chairs in entry hallway behind LR door), plus the breakfast bar seats two. The full kitchen is roomy for cooking enthusiasts and features electric solid surface range, full size fridge, Bosch dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, Keurig coffee single serve brewer, newer counters, sink & faucet, pots, pans, dishes, utensils, paper towel supply, and cleaning supplies (should you need them). There are several empty cabinets to keep your dry food stores. There are some basic condiments in the kitchen (but not guaranteed). Newer vinyl floor in the kitchen and dining area too! Through the French doors is the rehabbed upper level deck with outdoor table & chairs and umbrella where you can smell the clean VT air and enjoy views of the mountain and the field. The deck and stair surface is Azek which is a non-splintering PVC product that looks like wood. Barefeet welcome.

The bedrooms are downstairs. The master bedroom is very spacious and features a King Size Bed with firm memory foam mattress, flat screen tv, large closet and two dressers plus private bath with small shower, new toilet & new counter and sink. There is a hairdryer and a few travel toiletries for anything you’ve forgotten to pack. There is access to the backyard from the bathroom and the utility room features a full size washer and dryer. There is a full size ironing board and iron in the Master Bedroom. The second bedroom has a newer Queen Bed, flat screen t.v., slider to rear yard, dresser and empty closet. There is also a small desk and a full set of extra linens. The hall bath has been updated and features a tub/shower, sink & counter. There is a stock of TP and towels. There is a new split air A/C system for both bedrooms and main living space on the main floor. Controlled by remotes, you can keep each space just the way you like it! The bedrooms can be a bit cooler and the split systems can give you a quick boost of heat if needed.

This is the vacation home you’ve been looking for a restful and rejuvenating escape. Enjoy all the comforts of home while enjoying a restful vacation. This a great house to reconnect with visiting family and friends. Can’t fit them all in the house to sleep? Across the street is the Four Winds Motel and the Olympia Lodge. Extra guests can sleep right across the street and visit during the day. We have Verizon cell phones and get great service at the house. I can’t vouch for any other services, but I would think they’d be fine.

We have two little dogs and love them to pieces. We know it’s hard to leave pets at home when traveling so we are pet friendly and would love to hear about your furry companions to make sure our home would work for them. It is important that you pick up after your pets, as all good pet owners do, otherwise it will affect your deposit return. We hope you enjoy your stay at our Green Mountain Getaway, please share it with friends, family and co-workers.

About Leslie Jermainne

My husband Brian and I live in CT and purchased our Green Mountain Getaway October 2014. We have been rehabbing the home and enjoying it ever since. We have visited Manchester, VT every year for the past 23 yrs. always wishing to own a home there. After our 15 year old son fought cancer in 2013 and became a survivor we learned the lesson to be in the present. We knew how much we loved Manchester and VT and set out to find a special place to spend time. We found it! We love it! And we want to share it with others!

Leslie Jermainne purchased this house in 2014

Why Leslie Jermainne chose Manchester Center

We love a lot of things about this property. The view of the mountain, the 2 acres of field, the hand hewn timbers in the open Living Room/Kitchen/ Dining Area, the cathedral ceiling, the cozy fireplace and rough sawn wood that adds to the aura of the country. We love the pine floors, the balcony as a great getaway to hang with our son. We love to sit out on the deck and enjoy the view. We love that we are just under 3 miles out of the center of town for the quiet, but we love how quick it is to run in to the grocery store, pick up some coffee at The Spiral Press, or enjoy a meal at the great restaurants. We also love that this is so close to Bromley and only 12 miles to Stratton! The perfect spot!

What makes this house unique

I think our home is unique because it is much more warm and relaxing than a two bed motel room with a mini fridge. You feel like you walk in and it becomes your own private vacation home. It's the BEST!

Don't judge a book by its cover!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had an excellent stay at the Green Mountain Getaway, and we were thrilled to have our dog along for the trip! The house is very well maintained and stocked with all of the essentials and then some. The main living area feels huge with the open concept and vaulted ceiling but still nice and cozy especially with the gas fireplace going.

The fenced-in backyard area was perfect for letting our dog out to do his business while the additional yard behind that provided ample space to romp around in the snow together. I actually overlooked this spot originally based on the exterior photo of the front, but I am glad I took the time to look more closely!

Thanks Leslie and Brian!!

Beautiful historic cottage. Beautiful Mountain View. Convenient to ski resorts.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4 (2adults and 2 teen boys) and a dog. We were very comfortable in this rental. The view of the mountains were beautiful. The fenced in area was very nice for our dog. The rental was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked and organized with everything you would want to cook some meals. The Xbox was a big hit with the boys. Overall this was one of the best rentals we’ve gotten off this site. We plan on a return visit in the summer! We highly recommend!

A perfect location for skiing or hitting Manchester Center

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place for four kiddos and two adults for our ski weekend. We had plenty of room and the house is very cozy. Plus, I think they did a nice job updating an older home whilst maintaining a rustic feel. I also have to point out that Leslie seemed to include everything we could possibly need to feel at home, especially for the kids. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it for a family like ours.

My husband and I just loved staying at Leslie and Brian's home. It was extremely relaxing and the electric fireplace made it very cozy. The weather was terrible one of the days we were there which gave us an excuse to hang out in the house most of the day. Leslie was a pleasure to communicate with. It actually would have been nice to meet her. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer! Next time! BTW, Manchester is great! We go whenever we get a second off- not far from NYC. Check out up for breakfast (turkey hash the best) and Northshire Bookstore.
