About the property

Luxurious turn of the century 3 storied country house

Newly offered house has 5 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms and comfortably sleeps 10. It is easy to feel at home in this luxurious house located 9 Miles from Jay Peak Resort. With 2 dens, an open play room/studio, office area, large kitchen, several reading nooks, fireplaces and dinning room, members of your group can choose to hangout together or enjoy some personal time in this historical house. The 7 acre back yard with trails offers even more options. The 2 wrap around porches are great for socializing and taking in the views. An iron staircase made to look like a tree leads to a large third floor space. Relax upstairs in front of a cozy woodstove. All three floors have radiant heat, so the floor is always warm. A large heated mudroom at the back of the house allows ample room for organizing and drying warm winter clothes. The transition from winter adventure to enjoying time at home is an easy one at this house.

Located minutes from Jay Peak this newly renovated Victorian home was originally built in 1910. Extremely family friendly, there is ample space for socializing and finding moments of solitude. This historical house was redesigned to allow large family groups to have an amazing vacation experience. After the children climb up the "Tree stair case" to the great play room on the third floor, adults can spread out between the 2 living rooms, a reading area, the campfire circle or sit on one of the porches. The whole house has radiant floor heating and is cozy even on the coldest of cold nights. A caretaker plows the driveway so you won’t miss any powder up at Jay Peak Ski Resort. The home is conveniently located near Jay Peak Resort, Smuggler’s Notch and Stowe Mountain Resort. Enjoy all the adventures of winter in Vermont and come home to a house that does not feel like a resort.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at this home. The home is beautiful and extremely clean. Our large family stayed at the home and everyone enjoyed it, appreciated its beauty, the workmanship and had a terrific time. The beds were extremely comfortable and everything we needed was provided. We really appreciated the extra full size refrigerator and Butler's pantry. I highly recommend this home.

Contemporary Farmhouse, cozy with great vibe!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome family vacation home, comfortable for 2 families- 4 adults, 5 kids. Kids loved spiral staircase, loft living area on third floor, and hang out area with XBox. If you like to cook, fully updated kitchen is exceptional. 15 minute drive to Jay peak, and conveniently located to Montgomery center, charming village with great Inns and Taverns.

Beautiful Home for a Large Group

  • 4 of 5

We were in Vermont this July for a family wedding taking place in Montgomery Center. We had 10 adults (aged 26-62) and 2 children ( 8 +11) staying at the house. The house is just lovely, and there was lots of space for all of us. The kitchen is well appointed and had plenty of room for numerous cooks at one time. Each bedroom was very comfortable, with lots of storage room. The loft was very spacious and held two full size beds. Both sitting areas are large, and we had a fun post-wedding snack time on the gigantic porch. The home has lots of details that made the stay easy, such great parking, china dishes, labeled light switches, fluffy towels, etc. It is a great place for a group that knows each other well. we had a great time here.

There were a few easily addressed flaws, which is why it gets 4 stars. The house is NOT air-conditioned and that was NOT mentioned in the listing when we booked it. We get that it is in Vermont, and generally doesn't need it. But when we arrived it was HOT! We definitely would have adjusted our plans to open up and air out the house before going to the pre-wedding BBQ. The owner provided fans in every bedroom, but if anyone looking at this place has health issues, be aware of the lack of AC. A little prior notice would have gone a long way. Also, there is only one real shower, and it is slippery. There is a rain shower in the second floor bathroom in the tub. The older folks in our group felt it was difficult to get in and out of the tub, and there are no grab bars. The other "shower" is a spray attachment on a hose in the third floor tub. It was ok for the kids, and those of a smaller height, but it wasn't a shower. Should you have mobility issues, this might be a problem. But overall, after adjusting to these minor issues, we had a great family weekend.

Great rental for a large group near Jay Peak

  • 4 of 5

Large house, 15 minutes or so from Jay in Montgomery. Close to restaurants and small grocery store. House is whimsical. Comfortably sleeps 10. Great option versus staying on the mountain!
