Overall, the house was accurately described by Jason. However, there was a few issues throughout the weekend. The hot-water heater "shorted" several times, leaving us waiting for showers while trying to rush to the mountain. Initially, the heater shorted and there were no easy-to-locate instructions on how to fix the issue. This was resolved by calling Jason; however the 'shorting' continued. The heater in the TV room had consistency issues. Generally, the house would benefit from more instructions placed near the areas of use: instructions on how to use the water heater in the bathrooms (where the issue is most likely to be discovered), instructions on how to load the pellet heater and trouble shooting issues, beside the pellet heater, information on recycling policy and garbage routine next to the garbage, etc.
Jason was a big help at the end of the trip though, as our car got stuck in a snow bank and he helped dig us out. The house is extremely convenient to Stratton and easy to find with Jason's instructions.
The chalet is charming and a wonderful getaway for a family. We found learning how to use the wood burning and pellet stoves an unexpected challenge, but fun nonetheless. Jason was out of the country when we visited so there was a bit of delay in his response to questions, but there is a caretaker who lives just down the road who was able to stop by and fix the one issue we had.
The location is very close to Stratton mountain so very convenient for a ski weekend.
We think the location would also be great in the summer and hope to go back in the warmer weather.
The house was nice and location was great for skiing at Stratton. Highlights are Jason's record collection and guitar. Unfortunately, there was no hot water. After skiing a full day at the mountain, everyone in my group had to take cold showers, which were extremely unpleasant. Jason's phone went straight to voicemail and he did not return my message. The caretaker responded after we had all already taken our cold showers, and his only advice was to turn the circuit breaker for the hot water heater off and on again, which did not solve the issue. Unfortunate because everything else was great.
Jason was very friendly and a great host. We had some problems using the wood burning stove and he came by and showed us how to use it. He was extremely responsive to any requests we had including letting us check out a bit late.
This was the perfect getaway weekend for us. The chalet was cozy and beautifully decorated; had a ton of movies and records for us to listen to and watch. The rooms were comfortable and the chalet is just a 10 minute drive to Stratton Mountain where we had a great time skiing as well. Perfect place to go with friends or family for a nice week/weekend trip!
Charming cabin in the woods. Jason, the owner, made sure everything was in place for a comfortable stay. The place is spacious and well appointed. Everything was in good working order. Short drive to the slopes and restaurants, but we loved the cabin so much that we never went out for dinner after skiing.
Everything was great! Plenty of space, nicely secluded, fantastic place for a home base for a weekend in VT! Plenty of nearby hiking and other outdoor fun.

Hi, I'm Jason, an environmental engineer who works on water and sanitation projects in developing countries (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.
