Our parents bought this land, designed and built this home around 1971. We commuted to Jackson from Marblehead, MA almost every weekend during ski season and spent many summers here growing up. Our family moved here in 1977 full time and built on a large addition with extra bedrooms and deck. Our first time skiing was across the street at Black Mountain- at age 3. Actually 3 generations of family have grown up skiing at Black Mt. We learned to love swimming in the ice cold rivers and found some great swimming holes to visit. Now many years later, my sister and I call this our 2nd home/part-time rental. In 2011-2012 this house underwent a complete top-to-bottom rehab with all new paint, carpet, lighting, flooring, appliances, furniture and more. We ski, hike, walk, swim, eat out and see friends in and around the Jackson area. It's a place we love to come to for fun and relaxing and are sad when we have to leave.

If your 'to do' list is long, then you might find that the fresh country air is what you need to relax and rejuvenate. Kick back on the deck or watch the day go by from the Adirondack chairs and see how fun it is 'to do' nothing! Don't be surprised if you sleep like a log. The babbling brook will lull you to sleep.
Our family gathered at this Jackson house for the holiday together. There were seven of us and a baby. It all worked well. We played games, took turns cooking (kitchen area is small but it works!), went xc and downhill skiing, shoeshoed down by the brook, hiked and relaxed. The wifi was fast/we borrowed the snow shoes that were there/all the cooking paraphenalia and more was there/it snowed and was beautiful!
Two small details that surprised us a little were how close to the road the house was (but it is not a busy road) and the single bed upstairs is off of the master bedroom with no door. These things were probably spelled out in the description but we missed them.
All in all, we so enjoyed the house and the area. Everything was stocked nicely and ready for us. The house was clean and felt homey, with many nice touches, including flowers! Heather was prompt in getting back to us through the whole reservation process and was very accommodating. We would both return to this house for sure and recommend it to our friends!
Lovely home in a lovely setting. Perfect location for our visit to Jackson for a wedding at the Whitney inn.
We had such a wonderful time at the Jackson House. It was clean, perfectly located and a complete joy. Plenty of beds and room for all, but still a nice cozy feel. Our kids especially enjoyed the lower back yard and creek! We would definitely book again. Thanks!
We had such a wonderful stay. The home is beautiful and heather was great to work with. She helped us check in early and even mailed back a few items that we left with her. Highly recommend this beautiful place!
We stayed in this Jackson home for a long weekend in August. The house is beautiful and central to everything in the area. Everything was clean, there were condiments in the kitchen, extra essentials for the bathrooms, plenty of towels and linens. The yard all the way down to the brook was picture perfect! This was a long weekend family trip, and we are already talking about renting this same house for next years trip! Thank you Heather!
We had a wonderful stay in this beautifully unique home. The house was clean and fully supplied, and the surroundings were so peaceful!
