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.

'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.

Great summer getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family with 2 kids (4 and 6 years old), my brother, sister, and parents all stayed here very comfortably. The views are stunning. The deck and yard are just a pleasure to be on and the house is clean and well kept. Small details, like trundle beds, are very helpful. There are lots of toys and games and two bikes for the kids. Lots of fun things are just a short drive and the fire pit was a great end to our days.

Most Incredible Views

  • 5 of 5

This house was quite a drive for us from New Jersey but worth every minute. This is the second time my family is making this trip

because that's just how much we loved this house. Two families, totalling 10 people, stayed from Monday to Sunday and loved every minute. Mike was a text away if I needed anything, helpful and willing to make our stay perfect! The house had everything we needed and more. A flat screen TV, pool table and hot tub were the most used on this trip. The house itself was spacious, clean and the views were spectacular. Especially at night, where the stars lit up the sky, it was unlike anything I've ever seen. We spent a day in Montreal was which was only two hours away (perfect day trip) and visited the Pump House at Jay Resort and loved our day spent there! Overall I would highly recommend this house for any season and for any group of people, whether its friends, families or even a couple wanting a getaway. Can't wait to come back!

Getaway To the Mountains, With An Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

My group which consisted of 13 people in all, thoroughly enjoyed staying at the house Mike & Doreen rented to us. Being only 20 minutes from Jay Peak, and about 5-10 minutes from the Canadian Border, this house is a great place to stay if you are planning on going on short day trips, or visiting Canada. The house was very clean, and well stocked with all the essentials. The foosball and pool table were nice additives to the house, as both were used a lot during our stay. The hot-tub outside was perfect, after coming back from playing Disc Golf at Shadey Acres or a hike at Jay Peak; it was nice to relax in the hot-tub which holds 7 people nicely. At night the tub can light up different colors, and it especially will come in nice during the winter for any skiers. Mike was a great host, he quickly got back to any questions or concerns we may have had. The living room you can tell was recently updated, the surround sound with the TV was great. The views from this house are amazing, no matter the time of day there's always something to see whether it's the moon & stars at night, or sunset / sunrise. There's a lot of space to play Kan Jam, Spike-Ball or soccer in the front or back of the house. The only complaint would be the propane tank for the grill, one of them was unable to be opened once the one that was attached ran out. Otherwise this house has a lot to offer, both with the places you can go to, as well as just things to do while staying at the property. I would recommend this home to any families, or groups that are looking to spend a nice vacation, in the mountains of Vermont, no matter the season.

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.
