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.

'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.

Nancy (summer 2008)

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

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 Vermont

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.

Beautiful getaway home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this gorgeous home for 5 nights over New Years with our family of 6 adults and 1 toddler. The location of the home was perfect- spectacular views, easy drive to Jay Peak ski resort and completely on its own for a true quiet getaway. From the hot tub to the beautiful fireplace we stayed cozy in this fully equipped home. The open concept main floor was perfect for hanging out together and the different floors made it easy to have space for sleeping and doing different activities. Everything we could have asked for and more! Loved our stay!

Wonderful Family Vacation Home at Jay Peaks

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 5 days at the MountainView Trail House this past week over New Years.

What an amazing house for a family get together. We were there with our two adult children and their spouses and one 14 month old grandchild and even a dog. So nice that the little one even had his own room. We didn't need to use all the pull out couches but they were plentiful throughout the house.

Such an easy house to entertain in and to watch the views of the weather as it happened. The house was in the country but it wasn't isolated. So handy for Jay!

The downstairs outdoor access was very convenient for leaving the ski equipment dry and safe.

Thanks for the memories!

Great jay peak vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great one week stay over Christmas. The house comfortably (with privacy) slept 2 adult couples (there are 2 rooms with bigger beds) and we fit the 2 boys in the room with 2 twin beds and a girl in the room with the other twin bed. There was also a pullout sofa-bed in the living room that we did not use. The kitchen was open concept so great for cooking and still being with the family. The basement had foosball billiards and many games to keep the kids occupied. The family enjoyed the hot tub after a cold day of skiing. There are snowmobile/hiking trails behind the house that we used for snowshoeing and really enjoyed. The ski hill was 15 minute drive away, the owners recommended liftopia or the jaypeak website to buy ski tickets in advance, and with advance purchase we got 25-50% off, and similar online prepaid discounts for the waterpark.

We brought our dog, and with the enclosed porch we could let her out and not worry about her running off. The property was huge with a big open field which our dog (and kids) fully enjoyed.

The owners were very responsive, we would rent from them again!

A few tips: north jay road was a bit rough with recent snow/freezing rain. We were happy to have a 4wdrive but grandparents had a regular sedan and they managed ok. The town of jay and troy have small grocery shops for last minute items, but if you're looking for a big shop/buying a week of groceries consider the Walmart superstore about 20-30 mins away. We rented snowshoes and some ski items from snowjob shop in the town of jay, they were very accommodating. We had one dinner out at the belfry- great casual meal with big portions (about 20 mins away).

Thanks for the great vacation rental!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. It sounds like you all did so much and really took advantage of the area! You mentioned The Belfry, it is a great place to eat over the hill and they always give you enough to enjoy the next day. Hope to see you on your return to Jay.

Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you need for a beautiful Vermont getaway. With Jay Peak just around the corner its a perfect ski weekend getaway. While not on the mountain you come back to a house with a spacious floor plan and many activities to occupy your nights. The fireplace and hot tube are two huge bonuses to help you unwind and recharge for the next days adventure! P.S.- Views are sweet!!

AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time coming to Vermont and what a great house to help make this great adventure happen! The views were spectacular, accommodations were great, and I would not change a thing. One of my favorite perks was the hot tub. After a long day of snowboarding, all you want to do is get warm by a fire and hot tub. Luckily, this house had both. Such a great place for relaxation, adventure and family time. This is definitely a home away from home.

You all left the house spotless and obviously respected our home. You will be welcome back anytime just reach out. Remember that our return guests always receive a discount! Thanks so much, Mike and Doreen
