We had a very nice stay at Jason's Chalet. Jason called to confirm we had found everything and were comfortable. The space was great, we had six people and there was plenty of room. The vinyl collection was put to good use, and the assorted collection of pots and pans in the kitchen served us well. Thanks, Jason!
I can't say enough positive things about Jason's chalet, and Jason as a host. From the detailed directions to this remote area of Vermont (right down to a tenth of a mile!) to his call upon arrival to make sure everything was in order, my trip to the Jamaica chalet was downright therapeutic.
The chalet is spacious and well equipped, with amazing views of Stratton Mountain and lots of analog entertainment. Seriously, his vinyl collection is killer, and nothing could have been better than watching the sun set while listening to Rostropovich play Dvorak on vinyl.
The chalet is well situated as well, about twenty minutes from some mom-and-pop grocery stores in Jamaica center and incredible hiking opportunities in Jamaica State Park.
I will most definitely be back for return trips!
This chalet was great super cozy very spacious beautiful view. Jason was a great host super nice and flexible. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is trying to get away from the city.
Jason's chalet is awesome. Highlight has to be the fire pit in the front yard. Well positioned and an awesome place to spend the evenings. Plenty of kitchenware to cook with and linens/towels. An extensive record collection was listened to the entire trip!
We were a group of 7 and enjoyed a great weekend at the cabin. The cabin is really spacious and we were able to hear the place quickly despite the cold. It is really close to Stratton, about 10 min by car. Jason checked in a couple of times to make sure everything was fine and was very responsive whenever we had questions. Overall, it was a great experience!

About the Host, Jason
Hi, I'm Jason. I work as an environmental engineer and I also run a social business (called Toilets for People) that works for charity organizations in the developing world where there is a lack of proper sanitation. We make, and teach people how to make, composting toilets using local materials (so I travel a lot). Most of the time, I live in Park Slope, Brooklyn but I also spend a good amount of time (especially during maple sugarin' season!) in Jamaica, Vermont (near Stratton) where I rent out two other vacation houses that are also listed on Airbnb.
