About Jeff and Jackie Downes

We built this year round vacation home to really get away and enjoy it with family and friends. We love the beautiful scenery of the Green Mountains in every season. We love the peacefulness that comes from being surrounded by water.

Jeff and Jackie Downes purchased this house in 2013

Why Jeff and Jackie Downes chose Eden

We chose to build in VT because we have travelled here for many years to visit family. It is so calming to leave southern New England, not have to contend with traffic to get to this serene lake home.

What makes this house unique

We chose to build a home on lake Eden because it is so clean and the views are remarkable. We love that we don't need to pack up to go to the water. It is easy living at it's best.

Great spot

  • 4 of 5

House is new and updated. Plenty of room. Our kids were in heaven with the selection of toys and old games. Great fishing in the lake. Caught a ton of small mouth and large panfish. Crawfish are everywhere in this lake if you have little nature kids like us. The house has great views. I think you can see the water on literally every side of the house. Only took off one star because the campground across the way kind of caught us off guard. It got a little busy on the weekend, but it quited down during the week.

We rented the Downes' property for 10 days and had an absolute blast. The weather, the views, the location; everything was perfect. Can't wait to visit again! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

Great views lots of room and lots to do.

  • 5 of 5

House was wonderful and lots of new memories were made. Can't say enough good things about these folks. When our house fell through six days before our planned trip they were so accommodating and easy to work with. Thank you thank you. Rooms are big and we had plenty of room to all be together or have a quite space to be alone if needed. The house is great for kids of all ages. Our two Grandkids loved the downstairs play area and sandbox. The adults swam,fished, kayaked and had a real relaxing time. Plenty of games and puzzles to do. If you want a great house, great folks to work with , and an overall great time. Book this rental you won't regret it.

Thank you Jeff and Jackie for sharing your home with my family.

The house is great, lake is beautiful! We didn't have to contact the owners about anything because initial info they gave us was comprehensive and clear. Thank you for letting us stay in your house, everything was great!

Airy and delightful home in prime Lake Eden location!

  • 5 of 5

My sons and I thoroughly enjoyed renting this house with my sister and her sons over the 4th of July weekend. Lake Eden residents really know how to celebrate Independence Day; the boat parade on Saturday afternoon and fireworks on Saturday night were spectacular! The lake water was clear and warm (well, 70-ish!), the fish were biting, and the bugs -- for the most part -- were not. Truly a first rate vacation.

Specifically with regard to this property, the Downes were laid-back and easy to work with: responsive, but not intrusive. The house itself is beautiful and exceptionally well-maintained, with a lovely white kitchen and deck and an airy and welcoming feel. I made sure to arrive ahead of my sister in order to secure the best bedroom. You can save yourself the trouble: the house is situated such that both of the bedrooms have wonderful views of the water. Moreover, they are both enormous, with plenty of closet space, large windows and ceiling fans, and comfortable beds. The upper floor also has a large open office/den area, where all of the boys (ages 12-17) slept comfortably. (There is also a pullout sofa downstairs, but the cousins wanted to hang out together in one area.) I loved the screened/glassed-in side porch for morning coffee. The yard has plenty of room to play croquet and throw a baseball, football or frisbee. Fishing off the dock was not bad at all; my youngest caught a very sizable pickerel there. (We released all but the trout, which were delicious.)

I definitely recommend Lake Eden in general -- and this property in particular!
