Description

Our lovely antique farmhouse, circa 1850, is rich with history and charm. With original wide pine floors, plaster walls, slate roof, and classical lines, you will get a true taste of Vermont's beautiful architecture nestled in the mountains.

Our lovingly maintained 1850's riverfront farmhouse with a large attached barn is just 10 minutes from Vermont's best skiing resorts - Stratton, Magic, and Bromley Mountains. Sit and relax on the deck overlooking the Pikes Falls River running through the private backyard. Gather with friends around the fire pit in the back yard or the crackling wood stove inside the cozy barn. Prepare a feast with fresh food purchased from the local farmer's market or general store in the fully equipped kitchen. Dine around the large farm table, and talk and laugh till the wee hours of the night. Enjoy life's simple pleasures in a home with such wonderful history.
On a quiet street just off Main, you will enjoy privacy and quiet time while being mere footsteps away from a general store that seems to carry everything you could ever need including a wide collection of wines. There is also a hot yoga studio, a glassblowing shop, an art gallery, a library, a historical museum, fine inns and restaurants, and a lively farmer's market on Sundays (seasonal until October). The Jamaica State Park, also within walking distance from the house, has beautiful hiking trails and waterfalls. Manchester, known for its shopping outlets (Coach, Burberry, Armani, Gap, J. Crew, etc.) and wonderful restaurants is just a 20-minute drive. The Townshend Dam waterways are perfect for canoeing/kayaking and has white, sandy beaches for swimming and picnicking. The Townshend Auction House is an amazing place to find antiques and fine art for pennies on the dollar. There are many area antique shops in which to browse. Brattleboro and Bennington are fun towns for day trips. Come experience the natural beauty of Vermont and surround yourself with meandering rivers and a backdrop of breathtaking mountains.
Our home is children and pet-friendly and sleeps 8 people. One queen and one double bed downstairs, and four twin beds upstairs. The house is outfitted with all the comforts of home, a wood stove, a little library of DVDs and books, wifi, and a washer and dryer. Freshly washed linens are provided.

Our guests and their pets will have complete access to the entire house, including the attached barn, as well as the entire acre of property. Please remember to clean up after your furry friends!

I always reach out to our guests shortly after the reservation is booked. I am always a cell phone call or a text away, too, in case there is any question or concern.

Jamaica is perhaps the sweetest little Vermont village that you could imagine! It has all the character and charm you could ask for. Surrounded by a bowl of mountains, it is populated by humble, hard-working, and creative people. You can walk to every little shop, and the State Park is just footsteps away. You'd be hard-pressed to go for a walk and not meet up with someone else on foot willing to say hello and strike up a conversation with you! That's just how it is in Jamaica.

There is no public transit, but you can walk or bicycle to any place within the village.

Vermont country living can sometimes bring unexpected surprises. Although very old homes have tons of charm, they must not be compared to 4-star hotels. We price our Jamaica properties with this in mind. Thank you! We hope you enjoy your stay!

I am from New Jersey. I lived in Vermont for 8 years where I attended Bennington College and Vermont College of Norwich University. I met my husband in Vermont too, so it was always our dream to own property there. We have many great friends and memories there and whenever I am away from Vermont, I feel its tug. It's just something about Vermont that I cannot explain. I have been an art educator for over 19 years. Our two beautiful sons, Levi and Vaughn, keep us busy! We are so happy to share our vacation homes with airbnb guests and they seem to really love our places, too! Feel free to check out our other homes listed on airbnb as The Parker House 1832 Gem and Farmhouse on the River, both situated in the village of Jamaica. The three houses are perfect for co-vacationing families and/or reunions.
