Donna's parents bought this property in 1995. It consisted of a log cabin with a small attached addition. They demo'd the attachment and built a small 2 bedroom addition. When the cabin was passed on to Donna and her husband Bill in 2016, they worked with a local architect and built the beautiful place that it is today.
Why Donna chose Jamaica
The property is right on Cole Pond, nestled in a private corner of the pond. In the summer you can swim, fish, kayak, etc. In the winter you can walk out the door and snowshoe or crosscountry ski around the pond. Fall foliage around the pond is beautiful.
What makes this House unique
There are views of the pond from many of the windows. From the newly built screened porch you can enjoy the view of the pond and beautiful sunsets while listening to frogs and other animals. In the winter you can enjoy the fireplace while sitting in the original log cabin. A special feature is the new hardwood hemlock floors that were milled from trees that had to be taken down from the property. This house is very special to us - we have many family memories. We put a lot of TLC into taking care of it. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The home and property were excellent. Beautiful views. Well outfitted. Would recommend without hesitation.
This was the second time I have stayed on this property and both times have exceeded my expectations. The owner has thought of every detail! It’s amazing. If you are looking for a laid back, quiet retreat with all the comforts of home, this is your place
Absolutely beautiful house and wonderful location
Donna was a wonderful host and the house was even better than the pictures! The house was immaculate and beautiful. There was plenty of room for four adults and two children (6 and 4). Donna has lots of toys (kayaks, canoe, etc.) for the pond which kept our boys entertained! The pond was great and the view from the screened porch was amazing. We really enjoyed our trip and hope to be back again!
Donna's beautiful home on the shores of Cole Pond was wonderful. The house was impeccably clean and beautifully furnished; the kitchen had everything we needed for three days of meal preparation; the bedrooms were comfortable and the screened porch our favorite place to hang out, when we weren't swimming or kayaking in the pristine pond. Birdsong and loons calling, peace and quiet---this beautiful place was the perfect setting for our friends' retreat! Donna was easy to communicate with, gave us clear driving directions, checked in by text after we arrived and was the perfect host. We hope to return next summer....Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us, Donna.
Perfect in every way!
The house and property are delightful
The house and property are beautiful and perfectly maintained. The kitchen was as well supplied with dishes and utensils as most first homes, and the abundance of windows allowed views of the winter wonderland outside. The drive to Stratton was easy and the roads well tended. We truly enjoyed it.
