Jay Peak vacation rentals

Head north (just stop when you hit the border)

Hugging the Canadian boarder, Jay Peak is so much more than just one of the Northeast's top ski destinations (as if that wasn't enough). Perched at the very top of Vermont's scenic Green Mountains, the mountain and its neighboring town of Jay offer plenty of activities to fill every season. A Jay Peak vacation rental offers jaw-dropping mountain views and put you on the doorstep of everything from prime skiing to local boutique shops. You'll also be within 10 miles of our neighbor to the north, in case you're thinking of making a run for the border.

If you've always wanted to learn to ski, now's your chance

If you're heading to Jay Peak for some prime time on the slopes, you won't be disappointed. There are plenty of killer trails to go around. If the bunny slope's more your speed, have no fear -- there's more beginner and intermediate tree skiing here than anywhere else in the East. Snowshoeing and fat tire biking round out the winter scene, and there's lots to do in the warmer months too. The hiking is tops, and is rivaled only by the scenic drives in terms of the stunning views (bring your passport in case you decide to cross into Canada).

What's the fun of skiing without some quality apres ski?

Come for the skiing, but stay for the top notch apres ski options. Unwind with a pampering treatment at Taiga Spa, or over some fine vintages at Chapelle Ste. Agnes Vineyard. The kiddies will love splashing around at the Pump House indoor water park. Hit the back nine at Jay Peak Golf Course, or check out the end of the Long Trail, a hiking path that runs the length of Vermont (we won't tell anyone that you didn't start from the beginning). Cap it all off with stunning year-round views from the Jay Peak Aerial Tram.

All the snow you could ever want, and then some

You're looking for snow, you say? You'll find plenty of it at a Jay Peak vacation rental. The mountain sees the most snowfall of any ski area in the Northeast, with an annual average topping 350 inches. With snow comes the requisite cold temps, which can be in the single digits from December to February (great for ski conditions, even better for some cozy apres ski). Summers are mild, with highs typically staying the 70s, even in the warmest months of July and August. And, of course, it wouldn't' be Vermont without some breathtaking fall foliage, which usually peaks in October.

A river runs through it (and down it, and around it...)

Towering Jay Peak dominates the landscape. With an elevation of 3,858 feet and a vertical drop of 2,105 feet, it's hard to miss. Perched in the Missisquoi River watershed, rivers and brooks run down the mountain from all sides, emptying into the surrounding lush landscape of the Green Mountains. Jay State Forest is home to plenty of friendly wildlife, renowned hiking trails, and more trees than you could possibly count, which is great for that amazing autumn foliage that has made Vermont famous (don't forget your camera when you're packing for your Jay Peak vacation rental).
