Enjoy Jamaica in all its year-round glory: leaf-peep, shop, hike, ski Stratton, snow-shoe, cross-country, kayak, sail,and swim Near Stratton Resort, easy walk to the Village.
Stay at our super-clean, super-renovated 1830's antique with all new appliances, heating system, etc. Large, dog-friendly, enclosed property.
The master bedroom with king bed has a full bath with jetted tub.
A large queen bedroom on the 2nd floor includes a pingpong table.
A bunk bed for kids (and adults :)) completes the 2nd floor bedrooms.
The 4th small, queen bedroom is on the first floor with a full bath.
In the summer months it is wonderful to open the 2 doors onto our huge screened in porch.
Weather aside, everything was wonderful. The house is charming, and truly one of the best equipped rentals I have been in. Everything tidy, well organized and clean.
We really appreciated the bottle of delicious wine and the many staples in the house. Next year, hopefully.
I am a writer/contributing editor to New England Home Magazine, living in Lexington, MA. My wife Valery Rockwell (above) is a psychotherapist in private practice. In her spare time she gardens and paints. She fell in love with the house long before we bought it as a summer retreat. Now that our daughters are grown up enough to have outside interests not involving idyllic stays in the Green Mountains, we just haven't been able to go up there as much. We still love every inch of the place. We hope you do, too!
I like the fact that it is in a village. A city boy at heart, it makes me a little nervous being out in the middle of nowhere, or what I consider the middle of nowhere. I like having neighbors and I like to walk places. I also like the fact that the house is very old, but very tight and very clean and sunny and there's a brook outside. The lawn is the biggest in town, and the apple orchard I planted on the property looks promising. Hiking to the waterfalls is another thing we do from time to time.
We all like the State Park for its kayak festivals and rail to trail biking and very clean beach.
Valery and I joined the Stratton Health Club and have also discovered the Ball Mountain Dam about 2 minutes from us up RTE 30 -- What huge vistas! (And a back entrance to the Park -- no charge)
Overflow guests? Invite your friends to camp at Jamaica State Park, or (fancier) the Jamaica House or Three MTN Inn in the Village.
Another very basic activity for us: Reading and reading in the hammock. I have some of my best books there -- WS Merwin's new collected poems which are great by the way and hundreds of other tomes.
