FABULOUS 2 BR LUXURY CONDO - IDEAL STOWE LOCATION - SPECTACULAR VIEW

Stowe Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Ideally located midway between the village and the mountain in the luxurious Stonybrook area, this condo has breathtaking views over the front lawn, to the rail fence, then to the hay field and historic farm house, and finally on up the valley to a spectacular panorama of both Mt. Mansfield and Spruce Peak. Inside are newly renovated kitchen and baths with dramatic, professionally taken Vermont photos throughout, including ski shots, native scenery and cows from the neighboring farm. While you are visiting, you have no question you are in Vermont. The unit has an open-hearth fireplace, complimentary wood, an HDTV with a TIVO DVR, wireless Internet access, a DVD/VCR player and four cordless phones. Bedrooms contain 2 new king-sized beds with specifications to match the Westin Hotel's famous Heavenly Bed. In the guest bedroom, the king can be split into two twins. For more and larger photos with expanded descriptions, visit mansfieldviewvermont*com (replace the asterisk with a period)

The Condo's Neighborhood: The Stonybrook area is the premier place to stay when you are visiting Stowe. Aside from the distinctive beauty of the buildings and surrounding grounds, you are perfectly positioned to drive just a few minutes to the village or the base of Mt Mansfield, being able to instantly access either. At an even shorter distance are a variety of local shops, delicatessens (one of our favorites within walking distance is the Edelweiss and their Vermont home-baked apple pies) and restaurants ranging from excellent pizza houses to fine dining.

At the south end of the Stonybrook property is an enormous wooded ravine which stretches for miles behind nearby farms and with more trails than you can ever cover with one visit, including one trail that leads to a spectacular nearby waterfall. At the north end, for walkers, joggers, runners and bikers, is the mid-point of the famous, paved, 6.5 mile, 'Stowe Rec Path,' which winds its way along the mountain road from the village to the ski area.

The Owner's Purchase Experience: Two years ago, when we (the owners) were looking for a Stowe property, we heard many realtors caution about Stonybrook and its high Association fees. Then we ran into a realtor who actually lived at Stonybrook and remarked, you get what you pay for! She turned out to be precisely right.

Later, on a quick side trip off the Mountain Road to visit the Trapp Family Lodge, we spotted the Stonybrook grounds and the front line of condos. It was immediately clear to us that if we were to buy in Stowe, this was the place to buy, and if at all possible to try to get one of the front line 'Farm Row' units that had the best, and truly breathtaking view of both Mt. Mansfield and Spruce Peak. We decided to wait it out, and a year and half later found and purchased Stonybrook 6.

Not only did we get a front line, Farm Row unit, we got a unit with a view that probably only 4 or 5 of the other Farm Row units have. i.e the ability to sit in either Living Room couch and see the mountain.

The Mountain: What a mountain Mt Mansfield is. Having grown up in mountain country elsewhere, this owner has been amazed at the many moods of Mt Mansfield. From dawn to noon to dusk, from rains to clouds to sunshine, and from snowstorms to the brilliant summer sunshine. Many of these views have been captured on digital camera and are permanently available for you slideshow viewing on the unit's brand new 37' plasma high definition TV.

For skiing, you already know the answer. The classic and historic Nosedive and National trails on Mt Mansfield early on led the way to Stowe being dubbed 'The Ski Capital of the East.' But then sunnier, gentler Spruce Peak, with its wider trails is also the skier's delight. Whatever your mood for the day, the perfect downhill run awaits you at Stowe.

We welcome you to duplicate our own pleasure. Come, visit, and find a place that will lead you back to Stowe and Stonybrook 6, again and again. We look forward to getting to know you!

Daughter (in the middle) is the real owner here. Mom and Dad help out with the management of the condo, and Gordon Setter, Dash, keeps everyone in line.

Brooks Helmick purchased this condo in 2006

With Mom and Dad having honeymooned in Stowe, we always knew we wanted to come back here.

So in 2006, when the whole family rallied once again in Stowe, we were looking this time to return for good, and to find a property with a great view. After two week ends of looking and striking out, we decided to at least wrap up our search with a good Austrian pastry at the Trapp Lodge.

As we broke off the Mountain Road and headed up the road to the Trapps we spotted the Stonybrook grounds and the front line of condos. It was immediately clear to us that if we were to buy in Stowe, this was the place to buy, and if at all possible to try to get one of the front line 'Farm Row' units that had the best, and truly breathtaking view of both Mt. Mansfield and Spruce Peak. None were for sale, so we decided to wait it out, and a 18 months later (about three years ago now) we got exactly what we wanted.

Not only did we get a front line, Farm Row unit, we got a unit with a view that probably only 4 or 5 of the other Farm Row units have - i.e the ability to sit in either couch in the Living Room, and see the mountain.

Then we proceeded to completely renovate the condo with the latest appliances and yet with photos and decor such that in every room we and our visitors would have no question that 'We are in Vermont'

The pictures below describe the result. As the saying goes, 'What you see is what you get,' although our guests typically say, 'The real thing is even better.' We welcome you to come and see for yourself, and make your Vermont vacation dream come true.

AMAZING VIEWS AND SPECTATULAR HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Brooks:

I wanted to thank you for being such a great host and allowing us to use your home for our vacation to VT. We all had a wonderful time and said numerous times how amazing VT is. Growing up in SD my wife and I thought that we had seen green before but VT takes it to a whole new level! The scenery is amazing and truly breathtaking and we have already scheduled another trip to the east coast to see the fall colors.

I also wanted to thank you for the listing of things to check out while we were in the area. It made the trip much more enjoyable as sometimes when you go to small towns it is hard to know what to do and where to go. These are only a few of the things that we did that I can remember.....Took the ferry in Burlington, ate at the Blue Donkey (Awesome burger!), Ben & Jerry's (Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch is now my new favorite.), hundreds of photos, Shopping in Stowe, Burlington, Waterbury (and about every other little shop that my wife and daughter could find!), Hiking by the condo, pool at the condo (it was cold but once you got used to it, all was good), Hen of the woods (great atmosphere sitting on the deck watching the waterfall), Three covered bridges, glass blowing demonstration (and more purchases in that store! OUCH), Torte at Von Trapps (loved the view again), and probably my favorite...borrowing your binoculars and sitting on the deck having a cup of coffee in the cool morning watching a couple of deer and varmints running around.

Thank you again!

Pete

GREAT LOCATION FOR OUR BASE IN STOWE FOR BOTH SKIING AND THE VILLAGE

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic find Brooks' house is! Really stunning location with amazing views of the two mountains. The house is really well appointed. The welcome Vermont apple pie and ice cream were a really nice touch and to have endless free firewood was a huge treat. Kept very clean and in great order by nice housekeeper. Contact with owner and dissemination of relevant information before and during visit was very prompt and thorough. Lots of useful instructions in the handbook. Thanks, Brooks!

GREAT CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. It has a beautiful view of the mountains from the two story living room, is only a few minutes from Stowe and is near a lot of great restaurants. The condo is also very clean and has a lot of great extras such as granite countertops in the kitchen and both bathrooms, lots of towels and hot water (a big plus when 4 people need to shower after a day of skiing), WIFI and Tivo, a Keurig coffee maker, all new stainless cookware, huge wine glasses and even a fresh apple pie and vanilla ice cream when we arrived! Everything is labeled and very well organized. The only downside was we couldn't bring our dogs. Nevertheless we would definitely stay here again.

CAN'T IMAGINE A BETTER PLACE TO STAY!

Can't imagine a better place to stay!
  • 5 of 5
Perfect place to stay in Stowe. The home is a combination of rustic charm and modern amenities. Brooks was wonderful to work with and has thought of every detail to make Stonybrook 6 warm, welcoming and functional. We immediately felt at home. And the view-- oh my! Gorgeous.

The Stowe recreation path is a minute walk from the property, which is not only wonderful for walking and biking, but provides easy access to some great restaurants (we loved Piecasso) and the Stowe Sunday farmer's market.

We enjoyed the local sites and attractions, but we had an equally wonderful time simply relaxing at the condo, taking afternoon swims at the nearby pool, and enjoying the view.

Thanks for making our vacation memorable, Brooks! We hope to visit again next year!

Map

Car: recommended

Stowe, the 'Ski Capital of the East' is by car, 45 minutes from Burlington International Airport and just over 3 hours from Boston. Stowe is known for its beauty, spectacular skiing, picturesque Vermont living, and a passion by the local townspeople to keep it that way. Whatever first-class recreation you are seeking. From skiing, biking, hiking, fishing, golfing hot-air ballooning, to dining, country shopping, outdoor symphonies at the Von Trapp Family Lodge, or just a walk in the woods, Stowe is the place to be. Locally two first class spas are just minutes away as well as great restaurants, a cinema, museums, art galleries, and a Ben & Jerry's factory.

Ski: Always known for its tough and varied intermediate and expert trails on Mt Mansfield and the wider, afternoon sun trails on Spruce Peak, the entire mountain has and is going an extensive upgrade. New higher capacity snow making trunk lines have been added to the famous National and Nose Dive trails on Mansfield and a multi-million dollar Stowe Mountain revitalization project that will include new high speed lifts, trails and snow making, lodge, 18 hole Bob Cupp designed golf course, fine dining, and a world class spa.
