About Lisa Aikins

Growing up in Montreal, skiing at Jay Peak & fishing the Jay Branch brook were weekly yearound getaways. It seemed the perfect place to bring my children to, for them to get out of the city & get the most out of life.

Now with children grown & gone, we take pride in sharing this little corner of paradise with you.

Lisa Aikins purchased this house in 1994

Why Lisa Aikins chose Vermont

While looking for land to build on in the Jay Area, my husband & I fell in love with this stream & waterfall. It truly is our Shangri-la, where we spent each day the kids weren't in school.

My husband & I still enjoy gardening & swimming, flyfishing & hiking on & around our beautiful property.

What makes this house unique

This wooded, historical mill ridge is surrounded on 3 sides by a beautiful burbling brook with a waterfall & private swimming hole. A very private haven, only minutes from great skiing, golfing & resort fun.

Once again we had a great time! This is our 2nd visit. The house is cozy up with lots of room and different places to hang out. There is a ton of privacy and plenty of River access. Our dogs had lots of room to run around the River bank. The house has everything you need to cook and enjoy your stay. You can tell the owners pay attention to detail. Thank you.

Beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our ski break at this spacious home. We really liked the peaceful setting with close proximity to the town. Our stay was very comfortable and we enjoyed the wood stove and games in the evening.

Stunning property

  • 5 of 5

This rental is absolutely amazing. Minutes from Jay Peak, my family and I were able to spend a fantastic week enjoying the beauty of Vermont. After skiing all day, there was still sitting around fires, playing games, hiking the trails, and making trips to Kingdom Brewery and downtown Newport to keep us not only entertained but sunned with this little slice of paradise. The fire pit, the river, and the wood stoves were definitely highlights for us. The floor based heating system was very impressive for the dead of winter.

Lisa was very good to work with. Communicating through email she was attentive to my questions leading up to the trip, helping to put my need to over plan everything at ease. I could not have been happier with this rental and fully expect to bring my family back in the future.

Great vacation home! Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa's home is just as described. It is clean, comfortable, and sits on beautiful property. The way it is situated on the property affords privacy as well. Being able to bring our dog; an added bonus! Lisa communicated with us via email and told us all we needed to know about the house. During our stay, we skied (at Jay), snowshoed around the property, near the frozen brook, and on the cross-country ski trails, and had a wonderful dinner at Tastings Food & Spirits in Troy. We also enjoyed just hanging out at the house and basking in the heat of the two wood stoves for which ample wood is supplied. We look forward to staying in Lisa's home sometime during the summer. THANK YOU!
