This was our first trip to Stowe and our first experience doing a rental with HomeAway. Description of location and layout was great-only complaint here was the sign is kinda small with the overgrowth-easier to spot coming from the south than the north. Well equiped as described. Property was clean and well maintained, more instructions as to the workings of the house would have been helpful-had to call 911 after the house filled with smoke when we built a fire and the flu wasn't open as we thought. There is no local or network TV although there is a satillite.Property not handicap accessible, no wheelchair ramps, no .handrails to deck and the inside stairway is open on one side.The views are beautiful and location is easy commute all over Vermont. We went the week before Columbus weekend, 2009. The trees were beautiful even though we had overcast skies. There was fog over the mountains, but the sun came out when we reached the top of the mountain on the gondola.Stowe Lantern tour was fun but would recommend going the begining of your stay as we learned interesting facts that we would have liked to explore. Owner was great to work with-would highly recommend this property and hope to visit again sometime.
