Jay Peak Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-7)
Our condo is one of the Slopeside condos at Jay which is right on the Queen's Highway trail, the closet group of condos to the Tram Haus Main Lodge. It is just a few feet from the trail for simple ski in/ski out access directly down to the lodge and the main lifts on the mountain, the Tram, the Metro and the Flyer. Its also a short couple of minutes walk from the Ice Haus indoor ice rink, the new Pump House waterpark and the Tower Bar, Foundry or Drink bars/restaurants if apres ski goes a little longer than planned!
The condo has 2 bedrooms. One with a queen size bed and one with a double bed and a bunk bed, so it sleeps 6 in beds, and 7 if you include the couch which we have affectionately named 'The Green Monster' due to its capacity to comfortably seat a large number of people. The condo is on the second story so the front of the condo faces down to the lodge and has views from the bedrooms down the valley to the mountains in the distance. The rear has a deck that faces the Queen's Highway trail so you can watch all the skiers go by from the living room/kitchen area.
We have been upgrading the condo from when we purchased a few years ago (brand new bathroom this past summer). We are doing the upgrades ourselves and putting time and care into it as we hope to use the place as much as we rent it!

About Damien Helem
We are Damien, Janet and Dave. Damien and Janet are an Australian/Canadian couple who currently moved from Boston to Charlotte, VT and are avid snowboarders. Dave (Janet's brother) also recently moved from Ontario to Burlington, VT and plans on reviving his love for skiing from when he was a younger lad.
Damien Helem purchased this condo in 2010
Why Damien Helem chose Jay Peak
Shortly after Damien and Janet met in Boston, Janet temporarily moved back to Ontario and Jay was the half way meeting point for a year. During that year, a lot of time was spent snowboarding at Jay and exploring the surrounding area. During that time many memories were created in the Jay area. The decision to purchase the condo along with Dave, was made easy by the fact that it is centrally located between Boston and Ottawa. Damien and Janet have a 2 1/2 year old daughter, a 10 month old son and plan to 'Raise 'em Jay'!
What makes this condo unique
The fact that the condo is mere feet from the Queen's Highway trail makes it easy to make first tracks without having to organize your entire group into the car and to the mountain. We understand this with 2 small children! It is also super convenient to ski into the condo for lunch and save your cash for apres ski down at the Tower Bar! Spring, summer and fall are also great times to be up at Jay for golfing, hiking, mountain biking, and leaf peeping. The condo is centrally located for activities other than skiing as well. The new Waterpark is a couple minutes away, The Ice Haus (new ice rink) is a 3 minute walk. The Tram Haus (main lodge, spa, gym, Tower Bar, Alice's Table) is a 5 minute walk. The new Clubhouse (golfing/cross country skiing) is less than ten minutes walk away. The cosy town of Jay is about 8 mins drive down the road to rent a snowmobile, for a great meal or to shoot some pool at the Jay Village Inn, or to listen to live music at Dakotas Bar at the Cedarwoods Resort across the road.
In the other direction from the condo the town of Montgomery has some great mountain bike trails in the warmer months of the year and is also the 'Covered Bridge Capital of Vermont'! Art gallery, coffee and antique shops and the sleepy Vermont village feel makes it a great place to visit and unwind.
