About the property

3 bed sleeps 10, walking distance to stores & restaurants, has wifi, wood stove

Comfy red-roofed 2-story colonial set on the Trout River in the middle of a quintessential Vermont village. The house sleeps 8-12 with room for a few more dinner guests. It’s simply decorated, quiet and comfortable. There’s a full kitchen with dishwasher, pots, pans, spices and everything you’ll need, a wood stove in the living room, sectional sofa that seats 10. For entertainment there’s high-speed wifi, cable TV, 46” LCD Flat screen, Nintendo Wii, a fax/scanner/printer, and stereo system with Ipod plug.

The best thing about this place is the location smack dab in center of Montgomery Center,.This is the only option while visiting Jay Peak where you can walk out your door (day or night) and have a supermarket, liquor store, 3 restaurants, 2 bars, a post office, ski & bike shop, video rental store, pizza shop and gas station. It’s an 8 mile, 15 minute straight shot to the ski lifts in the morning. It’s an extremely convenient, fun location and a great, comfortable home.

We keep the listing calendar extremely up-to-date, so if the calendar says the house is available, it almost definitely is. So feel free to use the book-now feature on homeaway.

Cozy comfortable home with charactter

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable well appointed house right in town for supplies and restaurants. Lots of room for the group to relax. Close to Jay Peak.

Only issue we could find is you need some over mitts & maybe a juice container.

Good value for a group.

Good Location, Nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed there for 2 days and 2 nights. We really like the living-room area with the chimney!

The owner was very helpful and provides all the infos that we needed.

The first night was a bit cold, some extra blankets upstairs would have been nice :)

Definetely a good place to stay if you want to enjoy Jay Peak slopes.

Great Location, Great Value

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit up to Jay Mountain for some family skiing. Nothing beats ski-on/ski-off but this is a great second option that is a whole lot more reasonable for a big crew. We had 9 in all and this house worked out great. The beds are all comfortable, the house was clean and with Wifi, Apple TV and a big sectional, the kids were more than content after a day on the slopes. The house is only 10 minutes to Jay and is in a great location. There is a small market and a couple of restaurants within walking distance. The one bathroom can be a little challenging with a big crew but it really wasn't a problem for us and if you go to the water park, everyone can shower at the same time there. The Inn is a cool spot near the house to grab a drink . We didn't eat there but I hear the food is pretty good. We did have dinner at the Bellfry down the road and I would highly recommend this place, cozy atmosphere and the food was terrific! I would definitely rent this house again when we come back to Jay sometime.

Great Ski House!

  • 4 of 5

This house is your quintessential ski house that can sleep 9 or so people comfortably. After a long day on the slopes, you can come back and cook up a nice meal in the fully equipped large kitchen, play a few games, watch a movie or surf the internet. When your group is ready, walk a few steps to the Snowshoe lodge next door for a few beers with no need to get into a car. The grocery store is also a few steps away. Very convenient, and truthfully, one of the best reasons we chose to rent here for a long weekend. Not having to get into the car after getting back from the slopes. One bathroom is a bit of a bottleneck with large groups, but we hardly had a problem taking turns. The colder bedrooms didn't bother anyone in our group either. Plenty of blankets and comforters to cuddle up to at night. We had a great stay and would stay again in the future.

Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else

  • 5 of 5

House was very neat and well-organized when we arrived. A lot of open space and room to get comfortable. After about a half hour you feel as if you're in your own home. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for more than the usual hotel room experience. There really is no substitute.

The property is conveniently located to the village and Jay Peak access road. The home has a lot of potential for a family or small group and the owners are polite and very responsive. That is why i allow myself to give it one star.

Unfortunately, upon arrival we found the home to be dirty and inadequately maintained, delivered below minimally acceptable standards of cleanliness for a vacation home. We are a family of four (kids age 9 and 10) with basic expectations of cleanliness (not Four Seasons expectations) when we travel, whether renting a home or staying in a hotel. This home was not rental-ready. I first attributed the situation to perhaps a breakdown associated with local cleaning service. But surprisingly, the owners actually acknowledged the property's imperfect cleanliness when i complained. They didn't find it overly dirty, saying that they "don't treat the house as a primary residence, it is more of a ski house. " It really would have been nice to know this before I rented the property.

My family encountered the following:

* linens not clean

* kitchen/bathroom floors dirty, shower not scrubbed

* dirty carpeting

* furniture/window sills grimy and undusted

* refrigerator with spills/stains

In addition, there was no cable/wi-fi as advertised, and the heating system blows inefficiently with upstairs vents located only in the bathroom and hallway, not in the bedrooms. Not really ideal or comfortable for a family of four on a cold, 3-day ski weekend.

Our first nite at this property was our last. It turns out that the Ski Gods didn't cooperate anyway with freezing and pouring rain throughout the first nite and day. We enjoyed the water park ( great for kids and adults) and mountain on our first day. The mountain ended up closing on what would have been our second day, but we were already gone.

Our experience was disappointing and really was unnecessary. The owners should take the proper (basic), measures to clean the property appropriately and deliver it professionally, or be more candid about their maintenance practices with prospective renters. Some people may actually be fine with these conditions, but all should be aware.

Owner's Response: The weekend this renter checked in (Dec 20, 2013), a huge ice storm hit the area, and Jay Peak actually closed (google 12/20/13 weekend at jay peak). The renters asked for a refund claiming the condition of the house was not up to their standards, when in reality they were just disappointed that Mother Nature ruined their weekend. Every other review on the house is positive, but clearly you can't please everyone. In addition, if you have any problems while you are at the house, simply call us and we will get it fixed immediately. As for wi-fi and cable, they most definitely are there, and instructions are provided for anyone wishing to read them :)

Access to Long Trail is minutes away and the nearby Trout and Missisquoi rivers are ideal for fishing or canoeing.

The Fall Foliage season in Vermont is one of the busiest times of the year while visitors flock from all over the world to witness the beautiful changing colors.
