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!'

Lindi and Andre

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 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!

Impressed as always!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 7th year in a row staying at the Mountainview Trailhouse and we continue to be impressed. Mike the owner takes care of everything you could possibly need and beyond. After our trip was complete Mike asked if anything needs his attention because he is constantly improving and wants to be sure everything is 100%. This year, Mike even upgraded the cable package for us within 8 hours of asking since we couldn't get a TV channel we were looking for. And of course, Jay Peak delivers on every level as well with the best snow/trails/glades in the east. Do yourself a favor and book the trip, you won't regret it!

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.

Amazing property, wide open space and close to Jay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house! Amazing views and fit our group of 10 perfectly:). We loved the wide open yard for our dog and the privacy. The hot tub was great after a day of skiing! And it is only a short drive to the ski hill and waterpark. We would definitely come again!

Yearly Jay Peak Reunion (17th Year)

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay slopeside, but I booked this trip a little bit later this year and everywhere slopeside was full. Lucky for me I stumbled upon this gem! We had a party of 10 and there was plenty of space for everyone. Full kitchen, washer/dryer (even though we didnt use them), plenty of beds, game room in the basement, surround sound, excellent cable, hot tub etc etc. Everyone had a blast and as it seems our group grows every year, it was nice to have more space than the slopeside condos. Easy drive to the mountain. Excellent views! Mike was great in dealing with our arrival as well as departure and made sure we had everything we needed. Everyone in my party had an absolute blast!

Owner's Response: Well that is just super! We are psyched!! This is our 100th review and we are constantly looking for ways to improve. So glad you and your group broke with tradition and chose to stay at our vacation home this year. Glad the colder temps didn't interfere with your good times. Thank you for the great review and I hope that you think of us for your next trip up to Jay. We always have special deals for our return guests. Take care, Mike

TOP SHELF VT

  • 5 of 5

JAy Peak and this property are so impressive. Big views, mountains, real solitude and quite are what you can expect from this place. The owner is on top of all the details, has a lot of pride in his house and is a great communicator. The house has it all, games, videos, wi-fi, instant fireplace, up and down stairs, a good kitchen for cooking and hanging out, open floor plan, a pool table, foosball, and two fridges.

Jay Peak is known for the most snow in the North East. There is a waterpark there and all kinds of fancy ski restaurants and stuff. The house has trails within walking distance that are easy in the winter too. We had two families in there and never felt crowded and all slept comfortable. Mike and his place are legit!

Perfect place to stay in Jay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 people and we all comfortably fit in this beautiful home. The hot tub was fun and especially unique in sub zero temperatures.It also had a game room, and a nice wide open living room that all the guests could enjoy. There was even an extra fridge for all the Vermont beer we stocked up on! And of course skiing at Jay is always the best in the East. Mike was very quick to answer any questions we had via phone or email. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking to ski or ride at Jay It had all the perks to stay here! Great find!
