Jamaica vacation rentals

Get away from it all in Jamaica, Vermont

With a population just barely topping 1,000, this tiny hamlet in the southeastern corner of Vermont is the epitome of small town New England charm and light years away from big city life. You'll feel as though you've stepped into a postcard when you start exploring the quaint houses and picturesque churches that are dotted around the town's tiny main street, which is home to family-run shops that will make you yearn for simpler times. Jamaica is an idyllic base for exploring the refreshing forests and nature of the Green Mountain State.

From hiking to shopping, life is stress-free in Jamaica

Be sure to pack some sturdy shoes so you can take advantage of the countless hiking and nature trails that wind through the surrounding countryside. A Jamaica vacation rental puts you in a wonderland of forest, mountains, and streams, plus enough fresh air that you'll be sure to sleep well at night. When you've had your fill of the scenery (if that's possible), get some creative inspiration or nab some local hand-blown glass at the unique shops and galleries on the main street. For snow bunnies, there's some prime skiing nearby.

Something for everyone, from waterfalls to women's rights

If want fresh air, your Jamaica vacation rental won't disappoint. Jamaica State Park is on your doorstep, with trails, camping, and swimming holes at every turn. A moderate hike rewards you with views of the cascading waters at Hamilton Falls (plus some prime birdwatching along the way). Drive a few minutes and you're immersed in the lush greenery of Green Mountain National Forest or on the slopes of Stratton Mountain Resort, a mecca for local skiers and snowboarders. Don't forget to stop at the Clarina Howard Nichols Historical Landmark, dedicated to the pioneering 19th-century advocate for abolition and women's rights.

Cozy winter nights by the fire, and lazy summer nights out

If you're a fan of winter, Jamaica's your place. Particularly from December through March (and maybe even longer), the surrounding countryside is covered in feet of fluffy white snow, making for some great winter activities, or just a spectacular view with a blanket and some hot chocolate. Summers are pleasant and warm, though often humid. Even in the warmest months of June to August, the mercury rarely rises into the 80s -- you might even want a light sweater at night. The blazing fall foliage peaks during the prime leaf peeping months of September and October.

Go chasing waterfalls in Jamaica's lush forests

Endless acres of vibrant mountain forests are just waiting to be explored at your Jamaica vacation rental. With Jamaica State Park and Green Mountain National Forest just minutes away, you'll get your fill of hiking trails, towering trees, and native wildlife, especially some pretty feathered friends. The area's crown jewel is Hamilton falls, just one of many secluded watering holes you'll find as you lose yourself in the wilderness. The peaks of Stratton Mountain Resort are a great place to take it all in and get that perfect Instagram shot.
