New fireplace, free unlimited long distance, hot tub, dining for 10 (on 1 SINGLE TABLE!) and 46' flatscreen TV with built in surround! As the snow piles up outside you can relax and count on reliable winter maintenance to plow as often as needed. With the best snow in the east and an average of 30+ powder days, enjoy downhill skiing, boarding, or cross-country at Jay Peak Ski Resort which is the second highest peak in Vermont. It is located less than seven scenic miles away. Oh yeah and Jay Peak has the only indoor water-park open all year! A full-size waterpark called the PUMP HOUSE is open with a lazy river, a handful of waterslides including a Six Flags-style Aqualoop, and a surfable indoor wave. Ask about our DISCOUNTED LIFT TICKETS WITH NO BLACKOUT DATES!! Savings for every ticket every day. You can also spend the day exploring endless miles of snowmobiling along the VAST (trail) directly on the property.

Take a look at what our previous guests have said.

'This house exceeded our expectations, big, beautiful, clean, gorgeous view, well-maintained property, close to conveniences, well equipped. My kids loved it from the second they walked in - all five of them. I would highly recommend this home to anyone and everyone.

'Thanks for a wonderful time Mike!'

Mike,

Your Jay home is the homiest home we have ever rented. Everything was so inviting, soft, clean, organized, scenic, well-decorated... It was just like home. I loved the gate at the top of the stairs on the deck; what a great way to keep pets and children happy. We even did our yoga routine on the deck; it was so peaceful. The views, day and night, rain or shine, were fantastic...breathtaking! We could see for miles and miles. If I had to describe our stay in one word, I would choose TRANQUIL. We were surrounded by tranquility. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

*********************************************

After a day of activities come back, relax, take in the spectacular view and enjoy the warming afternoon sun on the deck, (Seating for 16!) or create your own après ski party in the fully-equipped game room with a new Brunswick pool table, board games, dart board, TV/DVD/VCR and CD player and extra refridgerator. You can also choose a book from our shelves and enjoy quiet time in one of our 2 recliners in the living room, also a great view. You will find entertainment and space for the whole family!

For a summer retreat, The Mountainview Trailhouse lives up to its name being less than a mile from the trailhead of the infamous Long Trail. Or if you prefer, The Appalachian Trail is not far either. Special rates for hikers! If you would like the refrigerator stocked, let us know. You can also cool off at the local swimming hole, complete with rope swing, only a short five-minute drive from the house! Or take a 20-minute trip into Newport to Lake Memphremagog for sailing, jet skiing, boating, or relaxing.

For autumn, there is no better place to book your trip. Perfect for leaf peepers or your private romantic getaway. There are endless miles of scenic drives in NEK. Although you will find you do not need to go far. We have covered bridges, beautiful country landscapes, and rustic barns all within a five-minute drive. It is truly one of the last untouched gems in Vermont. The Jay Peak area is full of activities and beautiful scenery in every season.

About Mike

Our constant goal while owning this house is to create a comfortable and affordable home that we hoped to find when went on vacations. Now that we are just about done with the work, I doubt we will be going anywhere else. We really love our house and hope you will to. This is not a worn down rental house, we like to call it VACATION HOME.

Mike purchased this house in 2004

Why Mike chose Northeast Kingdom

We love to ski, hike, swim and just relax. There are so many covered bridges, scenic drives and swimming holes within a few miles. Great hiking on easily accessible trails right from the front door. Skiing at Jay Peak!! We also love the quiet, peaceful surroundings of our secluded property although it is only 6.5 miles to the mountain.

What makes this house unique

Peace, privacy and quiet, alone with your family and friends. We are the only house at Jay with the gorgeous views form the hot tub, dining table for 10, a fireplace and a complete game room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Special time was when we saw moose tracks while walking, flights of geese going south. Enjoyed the beautiful weather just wish the leaves were further along. We really enjoyed your lovely trail house and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Great house, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house located close to town and Jay Peak. Modern furniture and appliances throughout this clean, well maintained, newly built 4 bedroom home. Game room contains foosball, darts, DVD/VCR/Stereo and pool table, great for hanging out in when not on the slopes. We also enjoyed the beautiful master bedroom with private balcony. Owner is very professional and caring. Highly recommended.

Awesome vacation for a family of 7

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days at this house, and it was the perfect place for us. We have children ranging from 13 to less than a year old. Our older two children are on the autism spectrum who have very particular needs (fortunately we don't have problems with stairs), and there were lots of quiet places for them to go to for breaks. The kitchen was well equipped, and there were some dry staple foods that made things so much easier. There were baby gates and booster seats and a wooden high chair. The table could extend to seat all of us and guests. There were a collection of family friendly movies we could watch. We were thrilled with how everything worked out. I highly recommend for family with small children. Mike was great with prompt communication, and he let us know where all the baby supplies were. We would love to stay at this house again.

The property was huge and was the perfect setting for our group outing.

  • 5 of 5

The house is located near the Canadian Border and is well secluded while still having amazing views of the mountains. I had the opportunity to catch sunrise and set, and both were equally amazing from the houses huge deck. The interior of the house was very spacious with a large open platform kitchen, dining area, and living room. There was ample sleeping room for our ten person group, with options on all floors. The hot tub sealed the deal for us. It's less than ten minutes to Jay Peak, ten minutes to the North Troy boarder crossing, and approximately 50 minutes to the Kingdom Trails. We had a great stay and would defintely recommend the house for a large family or group, or two smaller families.

Beautiful views, modern comfortable home, awesome game room and jacuzzi!

  • 5 of 5

Our crew had an awesome time staying at Mike and Doreen's beautiful home. A few of the highlights: It is only about a 10-15 minute ride to Jay (an awesome mountain); the view from the house of the mountains are breathtaking (not to mention when you sit out in the jacuzzi and surround yourself with that view); the pool table and foosball table provided hours of entertainment; the house was clean, fully equipped and very comfortable for our large group (there was even enough room for us all to sit together for dinner and to watch TV); and, last but certainly not least, Mike was an excellent host. He was extremely responsive to all of our questions, and it was obvious that he genuinely seeks to provide his guests with the best experience possible. We will definitely be back.

Great place close to Jay. Super for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay overall at this house. We had a problem while we were there but the owner Michael rectified it. He was always available by phone for any issues. Its a nice big place so good for many people. Got a nice open kitchen and nice high dining room table that seats 12. The gas fireplace was great upon returning from skiing as were the very comfortable lazy boy chairs. The main floor is a huge open layout setup. The pictures really don't do it justice.

Its only a short drive from Jay and a great spot to stay!
