Jason was an awesome host. He checked in on us soon after we arrived to make sure we were settled in and to let us know he would be by if we needed anything. The property is absolutely gorgeous and we found plenty of swimming holes nearby. (I recommend checkin out Dorsett quary.) Our evenings consited of playing guitar out on the porch and burning plenty of firewood in the huge fire pit right off the porch. There was plenty of room inside to accomadate all our guests! I would love to return to the Chalet and next time spend more than two nights....
The house was nice for our group of 6 to comfortably stay. The host Jason was very responsive as well. Few things I would like to point out are that the house wasn't as private as we had expected. There is another property on the land. Thankfully no one was using the other house or we would be sharing the same ground and would definitely run into each other.
The swimming hole was pretty dry. We went in early August.
Other than that a good house to go for a weekend and unwind.
Our weekend at the Chalet was everything we hoped it would be. I was amazed how quiet and serene the area was. Living in a medium sized city, you forget what real quiet is like. Fire pit was awesome. Plenty of firewood supplied which was great. Creek wasn't really running much because of lack of recent rain, but it was still nice to dip your toes in and explore. Crazy comfy beds! Excellent variety of records to listen to. Great kitchen set up. My friends and I were all in agreement that we would have liked to have stayed for a week, instead of a weekend. I highly recommend Jason's Chalet.
We had a great time at the chalet. It's an awesome setting with a relaxed feel. We loved the sound of rain on the tin roof on the porch then watched the sun set over Mount Stratton. There isn't much close by (15 minutes to gas or a convenience store) but that helped our feeling of isolation.
Jason's chalet was everything you could want in a remote, relaxing environment. The house is very comfortable and well-kept. It had all the basic essentials--clean sheets, towels, TP, soap. We cooked all our meals on the gas grill and in the well-outfitted kitchen. The large property was great for lounging around, throwing a ball, playing frisbee, etc. It has a nice fire pit to keep you warm while staring up at the stars. There's also an amazing record collection that alone makes the house worth a visit.
There's plenty to do in the area. There's a great stream/river across the street from the house. You can see Stratton from the house. It's a great place to do some hiking or mountain biking and follow it up with a refreshing swim.
Jason was very accommodating host. He called on the day we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend renting from Jason if you're looking for a quiet getaway to Vermont with some friends.
My family had an idyllic summer weekend in Jason's beautiful, rustic cottage. We were glad to have brought binoculars for stargazing at night and birdwatching from the hammocks in the daytime, and spent a great morning in the crystalline swimming hole just a few minutes stroll from the house. The house has tons of games books, records and classic movies, and a decent usable kitchen. It's far from town but that was nice (and Jason's driving directions were very helpful). We had some trouble getting the oven lit - it's a friendly, do it yourself type little cottage rather than a super luxurious vibe. Three real bedrooms meant parents and teens all had privacy when wanted, in between family times.
Jason was extremely quick to respond and checked in with us to ensure that we had reached safely. We had an amazing time there. The house has a lot of open space and big enough for a large group. Will come back again!

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.
