Overview

About the property

Unique newly renovated lake front home built around antique log cabin. Spectacular views of picturesque Cole Pond and evening sunsets. This is a

great place to get away all year round. During the summer fishing, swimming, canoeing and kayaking can be enjoyed right outside your door on Cole Pond. In the fall there is beautiful foliage around the lake and in the surrounding areas . Winter can be enjoyed by cross country skiing or snow shoeing right outside or driving to one of the mountains that are in close proximity such as Stratton, Bromley, Magic and Okemo.

We are also close to Jamaica State Park for hiking, Manchester Center for foodies and shoppers, Weston – home of the Vermont Country Store and the Weston Playhouse, and beautiful Buttermilk falls in Ludlow.

About Donna

Donna's parents bought this property in 1995. It consisted of a log cabin with a small attached addition. They demo'd the attachment and built a small 2 bedroom addition. When the cabin was passed on to Donna and her husband Bill in 2016, they worked with a local architect and built the beautiful place that it is today.

Donna purchased this house in 1995

Why Donna chose Jamaica

The property is right on Cole Pond, nestled in a private corner of the pond. In the summer you can swim, fish, kayak, etc. In the winter you can walk out the door and snowshoe or crosscountry ski around the pond. Fall foliage around the pond is beautiful.

What makes this house unique

There are views of the pond from many of the windows. From the newly built screened porch you can enjoy the view of the pond and beautiful sunsets while listening to frogs and other animals. In the winter you can enjoy the fireplace while sitting in the original log cabin. A special feature is the new hardwood hemlock floors that were milled from trees that had to be taken down from the property.

This house is very special to us - we have many family memories. We put a lot of TLC into taking care of it. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

So many positive things to say about the house on Cole Pond. The owners were easy to reach and communicated well when we had a question.

The home is located off a quiet dirt road in the woods. It was well appointed and very clean - from neat perennial landscaping around the house to the bathrooms and bedrooms to the great appliances in the kitchen. The screened porch offered beautiful views of yard and Pond; kayaks, canoe and paddle boat all available to use in the Pond.

If you leave the property during your stay, hiking/biking/swimming are all accessible without a car.

Would not hesitate to recommend this home!

perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This house on Cole Pond is gorgeous! Every amenity one could think of is here--from the fully stocked kitchen to all accoutrements (hand soap, hand cream, laundry soap, towels, use of kayaks, canoe, and rowboat...) Owners have put love and time into this home. My family and I will most definitely return to make yet more memories.
