About the property

1 Bedrooms | 1 Bathrooms | Sleeps 4

We are empty-nesters and purchased this home as our retirement home. It is located on the banks of the Trout River in Montgomery Center and has been lovingly renovated from top to bottom.

In the summertime, when the water is at its lowest, you can relax and frolic in the refreshing cool waters of the Trout River; just around the river bend is a deeper swimming hole for you, the kids, or the dog! In the evening, enjoy making s'mores around the fire pit as you relax and listen to the babbling river.

There is a comfy queen size bed in the bedroom and a full size pull out futon in the living room. All towels and bedding are furnished along with the basic kitchen necessities.

And we haven't forgotten Fido: We have provided a bed, bowls, and a toy for your favorite furry travelling companion as well!

Our little house on the river is just a short walk (maybe 5 minutes) to all the town amenities such as: grocery store with huge liquor and wine selection, nightclub, restaurants, post office, bike shop (they also rent out snowmobiles in the winter), ATM, churches. We are also located right on the VAST (Vermont Association of Snow Travelers) trail.

Clean, warm and quiet

  • 5 of 5

My family, our dog and I had a nice stay in Trout house 1. The little downtown within walking distance was great for wood fired pizza after a day of skiing and coffee with a dog walk in the morning. Ken and Jo Anne were lovely hosts and were very accommodating. I would definitely go back again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Jo Anne and Ken have a great little place here in Montgomery Center. Within walking distance of everything in the little village making life very easy if you forgot something or don’t feel like brewing coffee in the morning. It’s a nice, clean place where relaxing is easy to come by. The drive to jay peak is very short. We went to the snowshoe for some food and beers while staying here and had a great time.

Perfectly situated; nicest hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ken and Jo Anne's place- everything was well equipped right down to the extra poop bags for our dog! We had a lot of snow and cold during our stay, and Ken was on top of it every morning for us, clearing the path and the parking...

The place is walking distance to everything needed for a perfect ski vacation, with grocery, gas and some restaurants around the corner- an urban experience when least expected!

I highly recommend renting here and would recommend it to any family with or without dog- only 10 minutes to Jay!

Wonderful stay in Montgomery Center

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Little House On the River in Montgomery Center, from Dec. 24-30, 2017. Ken and Joanne were absolutely wonderful hosts and welcomed our pooch as much as they welcomed us. They live next door and were attentive and available to help us out. Ken kept the walk and porch snow and ice-free, gave us advice about the area, and helped us when our car would not start in the double-negative-digits cold. He really made us feel welcome, from the bottle of maple syrup awaiting us on arrival, to daily offers of fresh linens if we needed them, to friendly chatting about this and that around town and Jay Peak. The house was perfect for the three of us; it was in great condition, and had a handy kitchen, a queen bedroom, and a very comfy sofa bed with inflatable mattress in the living room. The house was toasty warm, and Ken encouraged us to use as much heat as we wanted. We loved staying in the village. We walked the few minutes it took to get everywhere - to Bernie's for a great breakfast (get the blueberry pancakes and the best homefires we have have ever had), the fiber arts shop and the outfitter shop, and (best of all), we spent one frigid evening at the local pub, on free pool and $3 beer night. After shooting pool, we got dinner and listened to a great blues player -- so fun! Skiing at Jay Peak was great, and even the one day at the waterpark with the other thousands of people - when we decided to do that instead of skiing (it was -19 F without windchill) - was pretty fun. Thanks Ken and Joanne for a great week. -- Janet

Clean, Pet Friendly, Charming spot!

  • 5 of 5

Jo Anne and Ken were warm & gracious hosts! They were able to be flexible with us and our reservation as a snowstorm came when we originally booked our stay. We pushed our stay out a few days and were so grateful for their flexibility. We were also able to bring our dog "Moosie" who loved the 63" of snow! The house is incredibly clean, comfortable and has all the amenities for a couple and pet. The grocery store is within walking distance as are a few restaurants and bars. We spent the day skiing at Jays Peak and loved how close and easy it was. We will be back again next year! Thank you again!

The best place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about Jo Anne, Ken and Rudy. They are just a few doors down if you need them, but they never intrude. They go about their business of keeping the place in perfect working order, clean, the parking/walkways always clear of snow and the snow didn't stop the whole time we were there.

The location is perfect, short drive to the ski mountain, miles of trails to explore just out the front door, great food just steps away at Bernie's, a few more steps bring you to the local grocer and a few more steps to the local pub.

I also recommend a visit to Mountain Fiber Folk, the lady (I'm sorry I didn't get her name) tending the shop when I visited is very interesting and informative. The felt wall hangings they made are a great addition to my home.

Choosing to stay with Jo Anne, Ken and Rudy will insure you have a wonderful vacation.
