WESTERN MOUNTAIN LODGE ON RIVER AND CLOSE TO STRATTON

Jamaica House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-13)

All season mountain lodge with spectacular river views and close to Stratton. The house has four master suites all with their own baths, plus a magnificent great room, den, loft, large kitchen with island, and dining room that seats 12. The lodge was built in 2012 by the Wadsworth Company, and designed with noted Montana builder Highline Partners, to inspire guests with one of a kind mountain and river views, relaxation, outdoor activity, and intimate time with family and friends.

There are 5 areas for gathering: the great room with grand lodge fireplace, the den with fireplace, HDTV, and XBox, the loft with reading area and 6 person card table, the kitchen with large island and wet bar, and the porch with comfortable couch and chairs overlooking the river. The bedrooms are as follows:

Log Cabin Room (1 king bed)

First floor bedroom designed as an elegant and cozy log cabin with a two person soaking tub and view of scenic on West River. En suite bathroom with double sinks, soaking tub, and rain shower. There is plenty of room to add one of the lodge's fold out beds.

River Room (1 king bed)

Second floor bedroom designed as the master suite with a spectacular view of the West River and Ball Mountain. En suite bathroom with two person soaking tub overlooking river, twin sinks, and double rain shower.

Mountain Room (1 Queen, 1 XL twin)

Second floor bedroom designed as a mountain cabin with a rustic bunk bed with queen on the bottom and XL twin on top. En suite bathroom with double sinks, and large rain shower. There is plenty of room to add one or two of the lodge's fold out beds.

Trout Room (1 Queen)

Second floor bedroom designed after a fly-fishing lodge with vintage fly-fishing gear and river front view. En suite bathroom with large rain shower. There is plenty of room to add one of the lodge's fold out beds.

Additional Beds (1 queen + 2 single beds)

The house also includes two foldable single beds and one queen blow up mattress. The single beds are perfect to add to the Mountain Room to make it a 5 person bunk room, or to add a bed to any of the other bedrooms. Put the queen mattress in the den to make it a fifth bedroom, with its own bathroom on the first floor.

The house is an all season retreat with Stratton’s award winning skiing and golf course 7 miles away. Mt. Snow is 15 miles away and Bromley Mountain is 17 miles. The island has miles of trails for snowshoeing and cross country skiing in the winter, and hiking and mountain biking during the fall and summer. You are steps from fishing for salmon and trout, and swimming during the summer. Enjoy the barbeque and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and telling stories. Jamaica State Park is 1 mile away with extensive hiking, biking, snowshoe, and cross country skiing trails.

The house is located on a 100 acre private island on the West River, which only has two other homes, and is accessed by a scenic covered bridge.

When you are at Dreamcatcher Lodge you are transported to a rustic mountain retreat that embodies the grand mountain homes of Montana, Colorado, and Wyoming, yet is only 3.5 hours from New York, and 2.5 hours from Boston.

Each room has been uniquely designed with a theme that has been achieved by a western architect and interior designer. The great room is framed with massive windows overlooking the river and a grand lodge fireplace, family sitting area, and chess table. The construction of the house embraces reclaimed material, using beams from old barns, antique white oak flooring, Douglas fir siding from old factories, and railings that came out of a 1800’s Victorian hotel.

The house is 1 mile from the town of Jamaica. Jamaica is a charming Vermont town with two excellent restaurants (Astas and Three Mountain Inn), three bed and breakfasts (Jamaica House, Astas, and Three Mountain Inn), craft and antique shops, coffee shop (Jamaica Coffee House), and market (D&K Market) with fresh baked goods and everything you need.

If you are looking to plan a Stratton wedding or a Vermont wedding in the mountains, Dreamcatcher Lodge provides a magical riverfront location.

Children are welcome. Keep in mind that the lodge is appointed with fine furniture and art, so supervision is suggested. Also keep in mind that the lodge is located on a river, so children should not play by the river unsupervised.

Spa and massage services are available by appointment.

GREAT STAY AT THE DREAMCATCHER!

  • 5 of 5
The house is beautiful and our group had a great time. This is the nicest house we have ever rented up in Vermont and the location is very unique. Two fantastic meals cooked at home and a lot of time spent outside at the outdoor fire pit.

Thank you again for letting us stay in your beautiful home. Highly recommended and would love to try it in the summer.

SPECTACULAR

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough about this home. The listing was accurate but you have to be in the house to really see it's beauty. The owner was so helpful to make our stay easy and enjoyable. Everything was perfect. The house really brings the family together as we used the great room for meals and board games. We had an awesome time. Stratton mountain is close by. As much as I love skiing, I looked forward to returning to the home each evening to enjoy the backyard scenery and peacefulness. We will be renting here again!

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Dreamcatcher and would highly recommend this home to anyone. The owner could not have been more helpful and responsive. The location and house itself lived up to the pictures. Nature provided a special spot here and the owners made it even better with the style of home they created in such a unique setting. Can't wait to return.

VACATION OF A LIFETIME FOR OUR FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
First I will say that this was one of the best vacations that I've had in a long, long time.The house was great for our family of 10. Very secluded and private and absolute luxury. It was like we were staying in the Disney Wilderness Lodge without the crowds! The kitchen was incredible with the very best appliances and more dishes, utensils, etc. then we could possibly use. Outside we made good use of the little pool on the river and the fire pit. Jeremy and Justine were very good and caring hosts. They called a few times to ensure we were okay and even took the time to explain the entertainment system to me. They were also very prompt at returning our deposit.
The only thing that was not perfect was the heat. Despite following Jeremy's recommendation to open the windows at 8 PM and close them at 8 AM, it was still a little toasty when we went to bed.
We would love to rent this property again. I can only imagine how incredible it would be in the Fall and Winter! Thank you for sharing this house with us. Our children want me to ask if we could buy it from you. :)

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you at the house! We are thrilled that your family had a wonderful stay and took your suggestion on the summer heat (which was the hottest Vermont summer we have seen) and added fans to each bedroom. We look forward to having you back again!

A WEEK SPENT IN A DREAMHOUSE ON A PRIVATE "ISLAND"...THE PERFECT VACATION!

A week spent in a dreamhouse on a private "island"...the perfect vacation!
  • 5 of 5
My family and I (5 teens/'tweens', 6 adults) spent an amazing mid-July week at Dreamcatcher Lodge. Although the pictures on VRBO are beautiful, they can't fully capture the magic of the the actual experience. As soon as you drive onto the island, you know you're in for a special vacation.

The house is nothing short of incredible. From the design to the amenities, it's truly a stunning property. Each bedroom is luxurious and comfortable, as are the shared spaces. The porch on the side is an excellent place for morning coffee or an afternoon nap; it's like having an extra room. And, unlike many rental properties, Dreamcatcher has everything one could need (a blender, plenty of plates, bar glasses, a great grill, cable and Internet, etc.). This house is well-equipped for spending as much time as you want at 'home'.

The property itself can't be adequately described, it must be experienced. Because only 2 other houses are on the island, you feel like you truly have your own private retreat. Although the river in front of the house wasn't quite suitable for canoeing, it was perfect for just hanging out in on the unseasonably warm days. And, the swimming hole in front of the property was perfect for cooling off. Trust me, this is not your grandpa's murky swimming hole--it's beautiful and perfect for kids or adults (although, the teens might like something a bit more wild). The best thing about the river was just sitting by it, looking out at a forest of trees, and listening to the water--the epitome of relaxation. I could've just stayed in that spot for the whole week.

If, however, you hope to travel beyond the house, it's perfectly located for exploring the area. The market in Jamaica was a great place for basic supplies--try their home-made pies (amazing!). We golfed and ate on Stratton, shopped and went to a concert in Manchester, went to the Vermont Country Store, and visited the Circus Smirkus in Battleboro (if you've got kids and the Circus is in town, check it out). Each trip took no more than half a day. The property is a perfect home-base.

Jeremy was extremely easy to work with, as was Chris, the property manager. Jeremy answered all of my questions quickly and supplied me with plenty of details about the house and the area. Although we didn't call on Chris, it was clear that he'd be there, if needed. This was an extremely smooth rental. I would absolutely recommend the house to friends, although part of me would rather keep it a secret.

BEST BOYS WEEKEND EVER.

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends and I visited the Dreamcatcher Lodge in late April for a "boys weekend." A pithy review cannot adequately describe the quality of the facilities. The house was immaculate and the photos downplay the quality of the home. The owner was friendly, responsive, and helpful. The property manager, Chris, was also excellent.

Here were our favorites:
1) The den's monstrous fireplace was perfect for a few hours of quiet reading. Large, soft couches were arranged perfectly.
2) The facilities in the kitchen were the best I have ever used. I was able to prepare meals for 10 with plenty of space and a restaurant-quality stovetop.
3) We didn't use the double-wide tubs, but might in the future if the wives and girlfriends see the pictures.

This is a special place - we'll be back soon.
