An opportunity to explore the beauty of Vermont
The house is exactly as described, in a lovely little village with very friendly people.
We enjoyed a couple of nights and wish we could have stayed longer.
Thanks -- and please come again some time.
Vermont Village Life!
My wife and I stayed in this charming old house in the charming Vermont village of Jamaica for a month. From September 13 through October 13. Like Helena says in her overview, "there's no IKEA here"! This is an old original country village home, about 175 years old so don't expect a modern house nor a modern village. Original hardwood floors throughout. Comfortable beds. This is just what we were looking for to experience small town living and the Vermont experience. We used the home as a base for sightseeing all of Southern Vermont and beyond. The fall colors were just beginning after we arrived and peaked toward the end of our stay...it was perfect! The mid rating on cleanliness is due to the age of the property. It's a well lived in home and we settled in like family.
The owner, Helena, was wonderful to deal with, even though she wasn't living close by at the time, she was always quick to respond, friendly and very helpful. She made us feel like family. Although we never actually saw the local caretaker, we didn't experience any problems that couldn't be resolved or answered with a quick email and were assured that he would be available if a need arose. The local folks were friendly and welcoming as we tried to blend in. Helena and her husband have volumes and volumes of books. Great spot to read and relax.
The local country store, D&Ks grocery had anything and everything you could possibly want or need and more!. We were amazed at just how much the owner, Karen, could fit into that store!
If you are looking for a true rural Vermont experience, close to but not imbedded in the ski crowd, this is the comfortable spot for you. Very close to Stratton skiing, close to Bromley and others, relax with a cozy fire at the end of the day. Great spot to see the fall foliage as well which is why we came here, we were not disappointed.
Not only generous and accurate but well written. Thanks.
We loved our stay in Jamaica. Great communication from owner. Charming historic home. We frequented the general store for fresh, hot coffee all day long. Bought beautiful glass pieces from Hot Glass Works and Hank himself recommended a cute place called Honeypie to grab a burger. They had the best maple shakes we have ever tasted! Next time we will remember our yoga mats and take a class at Change yoga studio. Don’t miss hiking Jamaica State Park just a short walk down the road!
Thank you for the great plugs for the village. Please come again.
Rustic, quirky and quaint -- all that a Vermont vacation property should be!
I stayed here with my son, his girlfriend and her cockapoo (small dog), making it our base while we explored the villages and hiking trails in the area. On the plus side: lots of room, and a real homey feel with old books, old photographs that made me wish the owner was there to share some history. Possible negatives (OK with us): simple amenities, small kitchen. We highly recommend this place for families or groups up to six.
This is a very accurate review! Note that the beds for two of the hypothetical 6 guests are singles. Also, there is a TV screen but it's not hooked up to cable, so you need to plug your laptop up to the HDMI cable (in the drawer next to the sofa, it not actually hanging off the TV screen) to watch Netflix et al. Or pop in a DVD.
Charming and convenient location!
After a 4 day stay at Hullabaloo House, we left feeling recharged and refreshed. In rural areas, we prefer to rent a home over a motel/hotel or B&B and look for certain basic amenities. Nothing crazy, just clean sheets, multiple bathrooms, a hot shower and a coffee pot for morning coffee! This home fit all the above and more. It easily holds 6 adults. The beds were perhaps a little uncomfortable but we easily fell asleep after full days of activities and exploring Vermont and the fall mountain air made for a restful night. The dining room table was the hub of our stay and we enjoyed a simple homecooked meal after a long day of enjoying Vermont. With one and a half baths, we took turns for our showers and still had plenty of hot water. I expected all that....
What I did not expect was the charm and history in the house and surrounding area. Although we’ve stayed in Jamaica many times, this was the first time we rented a house. There are little family heirlooms tucked in here and there. China and tea cups in an antique built-in cabinet. Monogrammed Silverware in the utility drawer. Old books lined the bookshelves upstairs and down. Nothing fancy here, just an enjoyable step back in time.
Jamaica Village is a sweet town and a central location for skiing, antiquing, outlet shopping, breweries, etc. We walked to Jamaica State Park from the house and walked along the level river trail along the West River. D&K grocery is directly behind the house with an amazing assortment. If D&K doesn’t have it, you don’t need it. (And try their freshly baked Morning Glory bread. It’s delicious!) We had yummy breakfast sandwiches from Workhorse Cafe and we were sorry to see North Country General was still going through renovations and hope to see them up and running for our next trip to Jamaica.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay at hullabaloo house and plan to return again! Rent, refresh and return is our motto for Hullabaloo House.
Thank you for the appreciative and realistic review. Your assessment of the amenities of our house is just what I hope people experience. The two single beds in one of the upstairs rooms are really for children or teenagers; I'll try to make that clearer in my description for future guests.
Great Getaway in rural Vermont!
Staying here in this home, town and area was like stepping back in time. Step out the door and hear the nearby river, walk next door to the local D+K Village market for anything you might need and lots of great bakery items. Explore the area - flat walking along rivers (Jamaica State Park) or hiking up mountains. This home is centrally located and has everything you need to relax and quiet to get a good sleep! The owner is very responsive and the caretaker was helpful. I would recommend this property and I recommend you to visit this area of Vermont!
Jamaica es una pequeña ciudad en el borde de las montañas verdes, a 15 minutos de Stratton base de hospedaje y 20 minutos de las estaciones de esquí Mt nieve, 23 millas al norte de Brattleboro (salida de la Ruta 91). que está en el centro de una animada zona de las artes y la música de los jóvenes. El verano está lleno de festivales de música y teatros de verano stock. Los kayakistas (los expertos!) zip por los ríos. Clubes de ciclismo girar arriba y abajo de la ruta 30. El otoño es de color brillante hoja, y el invierno es para el esquí, alpino y esquí de fondo. Jamaica State Park es de diez minutos a pie de la casa y tiene la pista de West River Valley (antiguo ferrocarril derecho de vía) para el esquí de fondo.
