Steeple Cottage is a magical cottage on a private hill overlooking the village of Stowe. It has been completely rebuilt and has a romantic, sun filled atmosphere. It is the perfect honeymoon retreat or charming getaway. It is a short walk to the centre of the village of Stowe where restaurants and boutiques await you. The area has all kinds of outdoor activities and concerts and the physical beauty of Vermont is everywhere.
I love Vermont. I am a Montrealer who has been coming to Stowe for longer than I want to admit. When I retired from the Fashion Industry in Montreal, I decided to rebuild this sweet cottage. I call it Steeple Cottage as it has a charming view of the church steeple in the winter. My grand father was an architect in England and I think there is some of his love for buildings in my bones. My Steeple Cottage is full of heart and makes me happy just being inside it. I hope you will come and visit and be enchanted too.
Virginia Huber purchased this cottage in 2000
The cottage was so much more than we expected. Everything you could possibly want was available. The host was extremely gracious and the setting was perfect. We stayed here for Thanksgiving and would definitely come back!
We reluctantly left Stowe almost two weeks ago. It is difficult to drive away from your favorite ski area with over two feet of fresh powder on the slopes.
Leaving the skiing behind was, however, easier than leaving Virginia's beautiful Steeple Cottage. The wonderful reviews that have preceded ours give an accurate glimpse of the pure comfort and sense of style that we enjoyed throughout our stay. Every aspect of the cottage seemed like what we so often wish for but rarely find in a vacation home.
Steeple Cottage, with it's great kitchen and lovely dining room with a view, was the perfect place to entertain our New England friends. They all enjoyed it thoroughly and complimented us on our good taste and clever choice of vacation spots. We happily accepted all compliments while feeling that we were actually just very lucky to have found such a unique cottage. We passed along the compliments to Virginia for she truly created every detail of the cottage.
It is a work of art.
We've rented many properties over the years, both around Stowe and elsewhere. I can say quite honestly that this was the most "comfortable," meaning you don't feel as if you're just a number. Virginia makes you feel truly at home and thoroughly welcome, and the cottage is about as inviting as it gets. The location at the center of town is great -- and being right down the block from Black Cap Coffee is a big plus.
Rent this property and you won't be disappointed. In a word: fantastic!
Steeple Cottage is the sort of rental property which you so rarely find. It is truly a home from home. So much so that when we came to leave we felt like we were moving out of 'our' home. Virginia (the owner) has put her heart into this house ad it shows in the furnishings, decor and equipment etc in the home. It is perfectly located with lovely views over Stowe and towards the mountains yet is only a five minute walk to Main St with it's shops and cafés. The house is in a beautiful setting within it's gardens, whatever time of the year you visit. The Stowe recreational path starts right by the Church so is literally within sight. If you are intending skiing, the shuttle bus runs from Main St or it is a 10 min drive to the resort so you have the best of all worlds. If you are looking for a warm beautiful home in Stowe then this is the place to stay and Virginia is the perfect host.
I was excited to stay at the Steeple Cottage just from looking at the pictures...and the pictures do not do it justice! It was beautifully decorated....but lived in at the same time. You feel as though you are staying at a relatives home. It is perfectly located...just steps from town and minutes from Stowe Mountain. Virginia was a wonderful host- giving us ideas on where to eat and letting us know about the Vermont Travel Club (discount lift tickets!). Our family had a wonderful vacation and a great start to the New Year.
Steeple Cottage was even more beautiful than we had expected. It is ideally located, being only a few minutes walk in to town but set on a small hill with a fantastic view of the mountains and the church steeple. It has been carefully restored and is furnished very tastefully in a charming country way. We loved the huge windows that flooded the cottage with light during the day and gave us the wonderful views, but also how we could light the fire and candles, in the evening, and snuggle down to watch TV or listen to the surround sound music system. With a roaring fire and beautifully dressed Xmas tree (Virginia kindly organised this) it felt absolutely perfect.
Steeple Cottage is very near the ice rink and sledging hill (sledges provided) and ony a few minutes drive to the slopes. You can also enjoy dog sledding, snowmobiling and sleigh rides nearby.
The kitchen is vey well equipped and has everything you need to prepare even a gourmet meal, although there are plenty of great restaurants nearby. There are also a few supermarkets and a couple of great artisan food shops if you want to cook.
Virginia is a wonderful hostess. We rented "The Ginger House" from her 7 years ago and were delighted to see her once again. She is very welcoming and encourages you to relax and enjoy the facilities and is also able to pass on great tips re things to do/see and where to eat. Virgina handled our initial enquiry quickly and efficiently and was a pleasure to deal with throughout. She is very kind and accommodating and will go out of her way to help in any way.
We hope to return again in the future - thank you Virginia for a wonderful stay.
