Carmel Cottages

Minutes to the Jay Peak Resort, Just off The VAST Trail in Westfield, VT

At the end of Carmel Road in Westfield, VT are our two year round vacation properties that provide comfortable accommodations for individuals, couples, small groups and families who enjoy the areas sports and activities.

The two units are available in a quiet, secluded setting with surrounding forests on our 22 acre property.

Just 10 miles from the Jay Peak Resort and with VAST Trail access, during the winter months enjoy winter snow sports.

A wood stove is available in the "Cottage" along with a full kitchen in both units.

At the end of the day enjoy the outdoor sauna and Rec Hall for billiards, darts and books, that we make available to our guests in the main house.

Each year round cottage has one bedroom with extra sleeping availability either by way of a futon or queen size pullout sofa.

Rates, Amenities & Details for Both Units

Save 50% With Our "Stand By" Availability

How our Stand-by List works:

We don’t like any down-time. Our desire is to be booked all the time. Your desire is to pay less whenever you can. If you can be very flexible, being on our Stand-by List might be up your alley. Here’s how it works:

When we see some down-time in the near future, we notify all stand-bys, offering them 50% off the rent if they can manage those dates in such short notice. By “short notice,” I am talking about one to 7 days. Even if you don’t have a very flexible schedule, this still might work for you at least occasionally. If so, instead of paying, for example, $440 rent for 3 nights at Carmel Cottage, you could pay only $220* (up to 5 persons). The deal could be so good especially when ski conditions are excellent, that you might find it worth your while to make this work for you despite your otherwise “firm” schedule.

All you have to do is contact us, telling us you’d like to be added to our Stand-by List. The next time we foresee down-time either at the Cottage or the Loft, you will get an email from us notifying you. Then it’s the “first come, first served” deal as usual.

*Of course, the deal is half rent. You’d still pay the usual 9% VT Rooms tax, $50 cleaning fee and fully refundable $200 security deposit (returned within 7 days of departure).


Amy & Jeremy October 22, 2015, "“Cozy” says it all. The Cottage was a great place to relax and use as our “home base” for exploring the surrounding areas and hunting [they got a doe moose their first morning!] and fishing the many brooks and streams. Thank you  for hospitality. We hope to get back for more hunting! We’re gonna miss the wood-stove!"

Shawna & Ed September 21, 2015, "Thank you, Jim & Linda, we don’t want to leave! Spent the last four days of our cross-country wedding-honeymoon adventure in this cozy cottage relaxing, finally! Spent the first day exploring and shopping in Burlington& Stowe. Shawna enjoyed some local ciders and wine, and I sampled a lot of local beers. On the second day we got lost in Newport looking for the perfect shot of Lake Memphremagog. Today we enjoyed some hiking around Jay Peak. We both loved the beautiful, scenic drives in the area. It’s the perfect place for us.—Shawna being from the mountains in BC and me from the farm lands of the Ottawa Valley—it’s like we found a place made for us. We would love to come back and stay longer. Had we known how much we were going to love it here we would have this time.

And oh, sleeping to the sound of rain last night –so peaceful! [All our roofs are steel.] We hope to return, cheers!"

Caitlin, Eddie, Tyler & Brett March 2015, "My fiancé, Eddie and I drove up from Boston to meet up with my brother and his friend—all of us originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We had such a great time at the Loft. We skied at Jay Peak and enjoyed cooking meals in the well-equipped kitchen at night, followed by some time relaxing in the sauna and a few games of pool in the rec. room. Jim & Linda were very hospitable. Their property is lovely. We would definitely return. Thanks, guys!"
