Located in the country yet only 7 minutes from the Village of Stowe and 15 minutes to Mt Mansfield this cottage is ideally suited to one or two couples who want a quiet getaway. Wood burning fireplace, beamed ceilings, wide board floors and views of the fields and mountains gives it charm galore. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs, one large with king bed and 2 smaller rooms for a double and single. Open kitchen, dining, living floor plan and washer/dryer included. A network of trails provide excellent hiking, snowshoeing and x-c skiing opportunities. Dogs are welcome, at no additional charge, and will love the walks.
There is now a new dishwasher and WiFi..... beyond cozy with great books to read and up to date restaurant information. Perfect. Beautiful antiques!
We stayed at this beautiful little cottage over Feb. break. 2 Adults, 3 Kids, and 1 dog. The cottage was beautiful and no detail was left undone. There was even fresh flowers welcoming us and dog dishes for our pup. It has a very upscale country/cottage feel to it. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and responsive to any questions we had. This place seems like someone's home vs. a property purchased to generate revenue.
The grounds surrounding the cottage were beautiful! It really is a beautiful place!
Everything was as described in the listing. We were plenty warm and the beds were very comfortable. Those of you with back problems won't be disappointed with the beds.
There was a TV with a DVD player and plenty of movies to watch. Many of them were brand new and did not even have the seal broken on them. Please note that there is no cable or regular TV. Also, there are many brand new board games to play. This was great and we did not miss the TV at all.
If you plan on skiing while you are there the drive is 20 minutes to the mountain. Also, I do recommend that you make your dinner reservations well before your arrival. Many of the restaurants fill up very fast especially during holiday times.
The only "knock" have on this place is the lack of Wifi. We knew there was no Wifi when we booked, but I didn't know how dependent I was on it. Given that this place is out of the way, it would have been nice to google different restaurants, stores for shopping, side trips, and the weather. My 3G did not work on my phone, but my husbands 4G did work.
We would definitely come back! I would love to see this place in the summer and/or the fall. Overall- great experience!
This place is everything a New England rental cottage should be, but rarely are. The pictures, try as they might, don't quite capture the spirit of this place. Heart of pine floors, preserved oak beams, windows letting glorious light in, rooms that are cozy (but not too small), a dining table for 6-8, and (best of all) a game table for cards (our personal favorite, Monopoly) with a fireplace close at hand – all in a VT farm setting. There is no kitchy stuff in it, as the building and muted decor speak for themselves (my hat is off). The beds are comfy (king, queen & one single) and the rooms very restful. The bath is fully updated, and in a befitting style. The kitchen clean and with plenty of space, and includes all but a dishwasher (looks like the space is there, so perhaps the owner will add it later?). No matter, small imperfections are easily forgiven here. In addition, little details - like tissues in every room - capture your attention. And all this with Stowe 5 min drive away, and Mt. Mansfield about 10 mins away. I’ve stayed in a variety of rental homes/cottages, but this one will stand out for its atmosphere and value. Explore the town (you MUST visit Harvest Market), or just stay home with a book and read. The place was so inviting, even the dog didn’t want to leave. “Nice fire … now pass some of that popcorn, will you Dear?” 'Nuff said really ...
Stowe and the surrounding areas are well known for exceptional outdoor pursuits opportunities. The beauty of the scenery draws people all year round who like to ski, hike, bike, golf, play tennis and walk as well as those who enjoy the concerts, antique and craft shows, car shows, dog shows and other local events. The quality of life here is exceptional and appreciated by many.
