Montgomery Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Sheady Acres is a 25 acre slice of heaven halfway between Jay Peak and Montgomery Center. Our hilltop Southern exposure gives us one of the best sunsets in town, as well as maximum light for one of the many activities we offer. There is an eighteen-hole disc golf course on property. Cross-country skiing, hiking, swimming and world-class mountain and road biking are right outside your door. Jay Peak offers a championship eighteen-hole golf course, and the deepest powder skiing on the east coast. Jay Peak has also just the largest indoor water park in the norhteast and a full size hockey-skating rink. Ask us about discounted ski passes. The Vast Trail has an access in town, 3 miles away, and 2 miles further down the road is another access with parking. You will not run out of things to do, no matter the duration of your stay.

The Sugarhouse at Sheady Acres: Sheady Acres is at the gateway to one of the most unspoiled areas in the country, The Northeast Kingdom. Although there are many activities in the area, the main attraction continues to be the great expanses of natural habitat that exist in the region. Jay Peak Ski Area is five miles up the road and Stowe, Burlington and Montreal are all under one and a half hours away. Our Cottages were designed with the savvy traveler in mind. They are outfitted with a fridge/freezer, convection oven, microwave and full compliment of dishware and kitchen amenities. All Cottages have natural Queen size New Englander pillow top mattresses, flat screen satellite television, and wireless internet. On demand hot water, and adjustable propane heat will keep you warm on those cold north country nights. Locally owned and operated, your hosts are knowledgeable about all things Vermont. These cottages have been a labor of love, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we have.

“The Sugarhouse” is our ode to Vermont, complete with a beautiful claw foot bathtub (with shower) and vaulted ceiling, designed from a traditional Vermont sugarhouse. The smell of the local white cedar interior is as sweet as any grade of syrup. The Sugarhouse is also the “greenest” of our cottages, utilizing almost all local and recycled materials. A pine plank breakfast nook, spalted maple trim, and marble corner sink to name a few. This versatile cottage will accomodate everyone from honeymooners to lovers of white powder days.

What to bring: Think motel without the shared wall space. We provide bedding, towels, etc. Don’t forget your camera and recreational toys.

How to get here: We are located on VT Route 242 exactly three miles from Montgomery Center. After you pass the Belfry Restaurant (if it is possible), we are 0.7 miles on the right. Coming from Jay Peak we are about five miles on your left.

Please contact us for information on our other properties, our 'pet friendly' Carribean Cottage, Irish Farm House and Adobe cottages and the Teahouse Pagoda (not pet friendly). Thank You!

About Shawna or Eamon O'Shea

Sheady Acres started over 15 years ago when I purchased 25 acres of prime meadow and woodlands on Rte 242 in Montgomery Center, Vermont. A treehouse was my first endeavor where I lived for a few years with my dog. The West was calling my name, however, so I spent a few winters in Winter Park, Co and Jackson Hole, WY always returning in the spring to my first love, Vermont.

My wife and I met in Winter Park, and we’ve been married for over 6 years. We have a home that I built on Sheady Acres that we share with our daughter and our playful companions Daisy and Kitty.

I’ve been in the carpentry/construction business for over 15 years. I dabble with pencil drawings and started focusing on cottages that I could design and build myself and rent to visitors who come to the Jay Peak Area. Having traveled to different parts of the world, I was inspired to create The Sugar House which is pure Vermont, the Caribbe which is my interpretation of the Caribbean cottage and the Tea House which is my take on the Japanese Pagoda. The Farmhouse will be number four and the Irish cottages I saw in County Cork certainly influenced its design. My wife decorated the interiors to enhance the individual flavors of each cottage so your experience will continue as you open the door and head inside.

Sheady Acres Cottages have been a labor of love and an expression of creativity that we sincerely hope will be shared by those who come and visit us. Give us a try. We look forward to hearing from you.

Why Shawna or Eamon O'Shea chose Montgomery

I chose to build a vacation rental in Montgomery Center, Vt because I grew up in this area and love Vermont. Watching the bikers soar down the hill from Jay Peak and the skiers go by on those powder days, I got the feeling that there are many people who would love an alternative type of property to rent while on vacation; a place with its own character and uniqueness, a place different from any other they've ever stayed at. Nearby are mountain bike trails, a golf course, the Long Trail (hiking), incredible sunsets, a ski area and a disc golf couse on site. It's the perfect place to have a vacation! We donate a percentage of our profits to the local animal shelter.

What makes this cabin unique

There is a very popular restaurant and bar within walking distance of our property, about 1/2 mile downhill. Jay Brook is a small hike behind the cottage where one can go on a hot day to cool off. Check out our Pet Friendly cottages the Caribbean, Adobe and Irish Farm House . We guarantee your dog will love this place as much as you will. In the winter you will have access to acres of snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

We have added a beautiful gazebo that one finds by following a stone path into the woods. A hot tub awaits the tired skiers, bikers, riders, hikers and those who just want to sit back and gaze at the stars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Amazing little treasure near Jay Peak”

The Sugar House was a magnificent place to come home to after a day of boarding at Jay Peak. The owners, Eamon and Shawna, were gracious hosts! The wood work is amazing and each cottage has its own unique charm. My girlfriend and I like to cook and we did every night in the small kitchen that includes: hotplate; convection oven; small sink; pots; pans; small fridge; and dishes!

Great Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect spot for a weekend away! Tucked in the hills of Montgomery and just down the road from Jay Peak, these unique cottages are a great place to get a little R & R! We stayed in the Sugar House cottage and couldn't have been more comfortable. The room had everything we needed, the bed was comfortable and everything was very clean and well maintained. The property is perfect for a little stroll in the woods, complete with a brook, hot tub, and beautiful view. The local area offers some great restaurant options (we loved The INN), hiking, biking and of course all that Jay Peak provides (tram, waterpark, golf, skiing, etc.). The wedding barn is going to be an excellent addition and is simply beautiful! Shawna and Eamon are friendly, welcoming hosts and we are looking forward to another stay at Sheady Acres!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to Sheady Acres (we first visited in late summer 2013). We fell in love with the location and Sheady Acres upon our first visit, and will continue to return.

We have stayed in the Caribe cottage both times (has a bit of a bright, cozy, Caribbean flair). It has everything you need for a comfortable stay and is equipped with a mini-fridge, sink, microwave, convection oven, coffee maker, 2-top hot plate, dishes/pans/utensils, etc. The Caribe cottage is pet friendly and they even have dog bowls there for your pup. The Queen bed is cozy, there is a small cafe table, and a dresser for clothes (as well as a TV and wi-fi access). The bathroom is cozy and has a waterfall shower head. In the warmer months you can hang out on the front porch, enjoying the view. Overall the accommodations are a great value.

They have a hot tub that is in an outdoor but covered gazebo-ish structure, surrounded by woods. There is also a grill and outdoor fire pit (and I think a hammock if I remember correctly).

The property is beautiful, and you will have great sunset views over the mountains. The owners are wonderful people and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and can make great recommendations on things to do and places to visit. Jay Peak is not far and there are lots of hiking and skiing opportunities (and you can golf at Jay Peak in the warmer months).

We look forward to continuing to return to Sheady Acres, in all seasons, and want to try out each cottage! This is definitely the place to stay!

FABULOUS!!

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time we spent at the Sugarhouse in Shady Acres. The cottage is furnished with much attention to detail. The cabin was spotless clean, wifi works well and the owners Shawna and Eamon are warm, welcoming and attentive to their guest's needs. The hot tub which is tucked away in the woods is fabulous!
THANKS AGAIN!!

Best Weekend Ever

  • 5 of 5
That is how my daughter described our time at Sheady Acres. I would agree. We stayed in the Irish Farm House and were blown away. It was perfect. Immaculately clean, views were spectacular, the O'Shea's are wonderful hosts and the atmosphere was pure relaxation. Enjoying a glass of wine on the porch as 3 young girls played in the woods and soaked in the hot tub was just what 2 tired mommys needed. My daughter and her friends had a truly memorable experience. Well worth the climb up the mountain. This is an amazing value for the nightly rate. Highly recommend.

Glorious value

  • 5 of 5
This last August was my 2nd time staying at Sheady acres...and I would not hesitate to recommend to an old friend. Very comfortable bed. Sweet spot to spend the night. Lovely hosts...When I first dove by I didn't understand the eclectic group of cottages...then I stayed and spent some time in the hot tub and watched the sunset and chatted with the owners....just book it! and have fun...

A unique, feels like home place to stay near Jay Peak!

  • 5 of 5
We stumbled upon this hidden gem when looking up places to stay near Jay Peak and were so happy we did! We stayed in the "Irish Farmhouse" which was a super comfortable, fully equipped, 2 story cottage that could house a small family. It was definitely more then enough space for 2! It was extremely clean and quiet, plus private and the surrounding land was beautiful! Oh, and very affordable! When we weren't snowboarding or sightseeing (Jay Peak is a straight shoot 5 minutes up the road) we truly enjoyed the hot tub, long walks through the vast woods behind the cottages and chatting it up with both the owners, Shawna and Eamon. They were incredible hosts who made us feel right at home and were a wealth of knowledge as far as what to do nearby along with outside of the Jay area. We can't wait to come back during the winter to enjoy Jay's infamous powder days and will recommend Sheady Acres to anyone heading to northern VT! This beats a condo or hotel ANYDAY!!! Thanks again, A++
