About Kaija Percy

I grew up in the Northeast Kingdom and recently moved to Southern Vermont to pursue a dream that is almost 30 years in the making: becoming an operating room nurse.

Kaija Percy purchased this house in 2006

Why Kaija Percy chose Burke

My husband and I shared a common dream of building an off-grid log home, so in 2005 we bought some land and he began cutting cedar logs from the land. Two years later we moved into the house and raised our three children there. There are lots of happy memories in this place and we welcome you to come and enjoy the solitude in our little slice of heaven.

What makes this house unique

Grid tied solar and wind power. Beautiful views of Burke Mountain and White Mountains of New Hampshire. Surrounded by hundreds of acres of pristine wilderness.

Nice Burke sports getaway

  • 3 of 5

Nice quiet house but very isolated in Winter - would have liked the owner to leave a light on as we arrived late in a snow storm. We had to shovel our way in to find the lock in the dark.

Overall experience with the house - good and well equipped but not enough coffee cups (only 4), dinning chairs(only 6) even if the ad says it can sleep up to 8 people +. I would add a couch in the main room on the main floor to enjoy the view. The house is big enough but cold and very hard to heat, thermostat would stay at 66F even if programmed at 70F. The use of the pellet stove helped but we had to check if we could use it (as the owner had a note to not use in the book). The things we liked - the large vestibule with the shelves to put all of our sports gear, the view and large windows and the fact that it is close enough to Kingdom trails in Burke.

Beautiful retreat nestled in the woods

  • 5 of 5

My family just finished a long weekend getaway in this beautiful home. It's tucked away from the hustle and bustle - while also being a quick drive to all the amenities. The set-up of the house promotes gathering and socializing ... loved that there wasn't a TV on the first floor to become distracted by. Kaija was helpful when we had questions about how the heat worked and responded immediately when we reached out. I would definitely recommend this location!

Awesome!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here on a 5 day getaway in the mountains to get away from life's craziness. It was amazing. Warm, quiet, best views ever, and exactly what we were looking for. Every road we traveled had beautiful views. However, the road conditions in winter are not so good unless your familiar with winter driving conditions. The owner was fabulous. If i had questions she was quick to respond. She checked in with us with severe weather conditions as well. I would recommend this place to everyone I know. Thank you 😁?

Spacious and cozy

  • 5 of 5

The house is a great location with a very spacious kitchen and rooms. Very clean and well maintained. Nice view of the mountains. We stayed there for a mountain biking trip and loved it. Only downfall is the distance to town; it's a short car drive but long bike ride. That didn't bother us at all. Definitely recommend and will use again!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights and spent most of our time riding at Kingdom Trails. House is only a 7 min drive into town, and some days we just rode to the trails from the house. House was great for 8 people, great land, nice and quiet too!

Beautiful, private setting. Great mountain views. Nice house.

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our 3 days in this beautiful, private setting. Great mountain views. Beautiful kitchen. Love the log cabin feel. We were a little disappointed that neither of the doors to the outside deck could be used, possibly due to the severe winter. The gas/wood stove could not be used. The TV had no cable or satellite, but Netflix was available. The master bedroom, which was gorgeous, had a squeaky spongy bed, so we slept in a smaller downstairs bedroom. The living room had only 1 chair to sit in. No lawn furniture for the outdoor deck.

With some minor upgrades to these issues, this would be a perfect place to spend time. The owner, Kaija, is very responsive and easy to deal with.

Owner's Response: Hi Paul, thanks for your feedback. I'd like to clarify a few things, since they may be confusing to perspective guests. The living room has a large sectional couch; the great room downstairs has a chair in addition to four benches which can be seen in the photos. There are benches lining the deck outside. The doors to the deck are in working order and are usable, just not in the winter when there is snow on the deck, since it gets stuck in the door jambs. Previous guests have enjoyed the featherbed upstairs and are not usually looking for cable TV when they are visiting the country, which is why I only provide Netflix and Wifi.
