Overview

North Troy House Rental Photos and Description

Open-plan home sleeps 8; onsite hiking, swimming, fishing & biking

Nestled in the trees, above a beautiful waterfall, a nature trail leads into the woods from your front door.

This luxurious, fully furnished, open-plan home is warmed by radiant heated hardwood floors & 2 wood stoves in winter. Situated on a ridge overlooking the water, screened doors & windows keep this house airy & cool in the heat of summer.

The living-room, with Cathedral ceiling, loft & soapstone wood stove, has huge picture windows looking out at the trees & stream. You can relax with TV with DVD, stereo, games & books. The open-floor plan continues with a fully-equipped kitchen, open to the 8 person dinning room.

3 comfortable bedrooms sleep 8, in 4 queen & 2 single beds, with full linens. The 'kids' room has Game Cube with games.

The 2 1/2 bathrooms include towels.

The basement, with it's own entrance & bathroom, has lots of room for play, even a dart board.

The laundry room is great for storage, skis & equipment.

Relax to the sound of the waterfall on the spacious side deck. Enjoy BBQ's on the screened porch, or down by the brook at the fire pit.

Splash in the natural pool at the Point, or frolic under the waterfall.

Enjoy a 1 mile nature trail leading from your door & walks along the water.

Boutin's Mini-Mart, (also serves great hot sandwiches & pizza), is just a short 2 minute walk through our trail or along the road.

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 Northeast Kingdom

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.

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!
