There is a lot of joy in learning about each group who comes but also the business side of–what makes people appreciate traveling. We have been fortunate enough to travel to a few places, both of us have worked in Operations and understand management and people from two different perspectives.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I had come with a group of 12 friends to Vermont and we stayed in this apartment during the peak fall foliage season. The apartment was great and it was in excellent condition when we arrived there. Though our group spent most of our time outdoors, we really had a good time when we were in the house. The description of the house in AirB&B was accurate and in fact, it exceeded our expectations as well. I strongly recommend this vacation home, specially if you are coming with a large group of friends.

Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
I booked this property as a surprise birthday party for my husband's 50th. We had 11 people staying (5 adults, 6 kids under 16) so needed a large home to accommodate everyone.
I've booked on HomeAway quite a bit and this was one of the nicest properties we've stayed at. The listing is perfect, but the pictures don't do this home justice. Everything is super clean and designed and decorated with thought and care. The bedrooms and bathrooms are huge and plenty of room for larger groups without feeling claustrophobic. The home is well stocked with plenty of towels, kitchen gadgets and reading material.
The owners are phenomenal and very responsive to all my incessant questions and pestering. They even had a nice gift and birthday card for my husband, which was unexpected and a pleasant surprise. The welcome binder is fantastic and answers any questions you may have.
You will want to bring food with you as the closest major grocery store is about an 40 -50 minutes away. There are a couple of small convenience stores for dry goods and some frozen foods, all are reasonably priced.
Definitely hit Brault's meat market - prices are phenomenal and the native steaks were superb.
I would definitely and strongly recommend this property for anyone looking for a peaceful getaway. The area is very remote, but welcoming for people who want to get away and enjoy nature. The skies at night are beautiful!
The internet service is spotty, but to be expected due to the location.
I can't say how much fun we had this weekend at this property. Plenty of room for the kids to run and play outside and a beautiful home for the adults to enjoy. It was absolute perfection and hope to return this winter to enjoy Jay Peak skiing.

Owner's Response: You guys are now our #1! WE love your kind words and can't THANK-YOU enough for treating our home as if it was yours. We have recognized patterns in travelers questions and created the guest book based off of our observations. It's only going to get better! We've been asked how to turn the TV on enough times and that we needed to get smart about it. The pictures listed on the site are not very good and we are waiting for that photographer to rent our home and offer a photo shoot!! The guests that come up all have unique stories and so we try and accommodate to their specific interests. Champaign seemed most fitting for a 50th birthday and especially for the one who planned it all!! WE cant wait to see you guys return on our return renter program and take advantage of the discounted price and improved accommodations. WE only plan to add more things that make traveling away feel like home! Thanks again!! Go #1!

I have never planned a big ski vacation before with our friends, but boy was it easy! From the beginning, Kristen was so responsive and helpful in planning our stay with 13 friends. We arrived at the home, and were totally blown away. It was your ultimate ski chalet! Everything was very clean, and ready for our friends to arrive. We couldn't figure out to work the TV and once I contacted Kristen, she came over to help within 15 min. What service! The whole weekend was great, due mostly the great accommodations! The boys particularly loved the pool table downstairs while the girls caught up upstairs! It was about 25 minutes to Jay Peak. The only downfall (on our part) was that we didn't plan for meals. Supermarkets aren't too close, so plan ahead! We can't wait to plan another trip! Thanks Kristen and Jay!

Owner's Response: You did a great job at planning your first trip up to Jay Peak! The TV is an ongoing battle with today's average guests coming with all the latest gadgets. Our TV has been used for home videos and such and sometimes it takes a minute to get it figured out. I have added updated instructions on how to use the remotes based off of our conversation. I love when our guests call so thank-you! I also love the added feature of texting! Hope to see you again in the future!

We arrived on Thursday and didn't want to leave on Sunday! The home is clean, well maintained, with all the amenities of home and then some! Driveway was plowed with access to garage, we were very impressed! We spent some time at Jay Peak which was about 15 miles from the house.... Not a bad drive at all!

Owner's Response: Thanks for such a nice review!! It's not easy to leave on Monday morning either!!! Jay Peak is a beautiful mountain to gaze at in the wintertime. I tell Jay that he is going to plow the driveway into a diamond pretty soon! He was thrilled to hear your comment. Thank-you for your review and please come stay with us again sometime!

Fantastic three-day weekend at Tranquility Lodge

  • 5 of 5
We hosted a fantastic three-day weekend at Tranquility Lodge for our good friend’s bachelor party. We had a couple of great, sunny days at Jay Peak (an easy car ride away), and also explored the beautiful property and surrounding trails on snowshoes, shared meals that we cooked in the spacious and fully functional kitchen, enjoyed an epic pool tournament on the table downstairs (!), watched movies in the vast-yet-cozy living room, and slept very well on the various beds, couches, and air mattresses around the house. It was fun giving the tour to each new carload of pals who joined us for our 13-person weekend. We all marveled at the princely bathrooms with their jacuzzi tubs, and the open, serene view from the Lodge’s large windows. Kristen and Jason were very responsive and helpful, even securing our ski passes that we had requested late! My one regret is that we didn’t have enough steam at the end of our last long day at the mountain to make a bonfire of the wood that Jason had gathered for us at the very cool outdoor fire pit!

Tranquility Lodge proved to be the perfect getaway. Everyone had a blast, and we all agreed that we’d chosen the right place! I hope we get a chance to go back next season!

Thanks again!

Team Building Getaway

We had a group of 15 stay at the lodge near Jay Peak. The layout was amazing and the house was fully stocked with all the amenities that you need to host a large group. The location is remote but access to grocery stores and supplies is only 10 minutes away.

Jason and Kristen were great hosts and quickly responded to all of our needs. If you like privacy, quality rooms and a genuine outdoor experience then this is a perfect choice.

Perfect Ski Retreat

  • 5 of 5
What a great find! My group of 10 panned a ski weekend and birthday celebration near Jay Peak and we luckily found this place. It was very spacious; there was plenty of space for us hang out together while still having places for people to retreat to for a quick post-ski nap. The kitchen is fantastic, too. We enjoyed breakfasts around the island counter and family-style dinners on the dining table. They also supplied the kitchen with many appliances, which made cooking very enjoyable. It was well heated, from the central air, to the fireplace in the living room, to the jacuzzi tubs in some of the bathrooms, we found plenty of ways to warm up after a day on the slopes at Jay Peak.
Speaking of Jay Peak, there is so much to do and it is very close. We definitely took advantage of the water park to warm up one day. The weather was not so nice one of the days, so many of the lifts were closed, but there was so much to do we were able to entertain ourselves nonetheless. Alice's Table was a great lunch spot right in the base camp.
Kristen and Jason were also very helpful. They were quick to respond to all of our emails and were very informative. And Kristen's delicious homemade jam made breakfast even better. I could tell from talking to them that they really loved the house, and it definitely showed when I got there and saw it myself.
I would definitely recommend Tranquility Lodge to any groups looking for a place near Jay Peak!

Owner's Response: Thank-you so much for the kind words! I am glad that you decided to go with our home and that it all worked out for you! We want everyone to come back and stay again. Jay Peak is making such a big change in our community with all of there expansions. We love all the entertainment that the Mt brings. It sure makes the long winter more enjoyable for us. I'm getting ready to start planning the garden and of course will be making more Strawberry Jam! We love our home a lot and I'm not joking when I say it's the best in the area! lol I guess it's because we've worked so hard to have a home like this. Thank-you again and we will see you next time!
