Here is an economic solution to your desire for a Stowe vacation. Our family of 5 quickly outgrew the traditional hotel room. We needed 2 hotel rooms in order to have enough space. We lugged coolers and suitcases back and forth from our car. Save money while enjoying your family vacation this year!
At Our Home Away From Home the Master bedroom features a queen bed, wall mounted flat screen TV with cable and DVD, and an attached full bath. The additional 2 bedrooms have 2 twin beds and one full size bed and share a full bath. Hair dryers provided. You will find ample closet space and storage space to place your belongings. Store your skis inside in the tiled entry-way.
Just like home, the fully-equipped galley kitchen allows you to cook, bake or re-heat wonderful meals. Save money by having your breakfast at home! Or bring dinner in! You will find a refrigerator, glass-top stove, microwave, dishwasher, complete dishes and flatware for 12, serving ware, blender, toaster, colander, mixer, mixing bowls, cookie sheets, tea kettle, pots, and pans. Your home away from home!
There is an open living area with lots of windows and full sun during most of the day. Comfortable seating for 6 to enjoy the HDTV and supply of videos. A toasty propane stove allows you to adjust the room temperature to your comfort or use the air conditioning in the summer. A large dining table allows seating for 6 and high speed internet to cruise for area information or stay in touch with those not fortunate enough to join you at your home away from home.
Alfresco dining at Our Home Away From Home. During the summer you can enjoy the teak table and chairs on a large private deck overlooking the Worcester Range.
During your stay, you and your family will enjoy all the benefits of Mountainside Resort. There is a large indoor pool with sauna and hot tub. Overlooking the pool, in the common area above, is a billiard table, large screen TV, and pinball machines.
There's no end to things to do. Outdoor activities in the area to name a few include; downhill and cross country skiing, bicycling, rollerblading, hiking, swimming, gliding at the nearby airport, and fishing. Take a long walk on the Stowe Recreation Path which leads to the quaint village of Stowe. Trek your way to some of the prized secluded spots Stowe has to offer... swimming holes, waterfalls, pot holes and gorges.
For over 20 years, our family has enjoyed all this town has to offer. We hope you'll finding it as appealing as we have.
I've lived in Connecticut all of my life but first discovered Stowe with my father and brother in 1973. Over the next 25 years I made annual visits to enjoy the unprecedented skiing on Mount Mansfield. In the late 90's my wife and I took our first summer trip to Stowe with our 3 boys. Most people do not consider Stowe a year round vacation destination, but to our pleasant surprise we found there's so much more to Stowe than skiing. Other seasons in Vermont offer the opportunity for hiking, biking, exploring caves, and swimming in waterholes, water falls and gorges. So we just kept coming back.
Gene Brown purchased this condo in 2002
After a few years of winter/summer hotel stays in our newly discovered year round vacation destination we were totally hooked. The biggest problem we had was that we had to drag coolers into hotel rooms, eat out every night, and now that the boys were getting bigger, we had to rent two hotel rooms every vacation. Mountainside Resort is only five miles away from Mount Mansfield making it an ideal location for our family. Staying in a three bedroom condo gives us plenty of room to spread out and relax creating the feeling of a true vacation.
This vacation property is truly our home away from home! Meals are less-expensive and stress-free. We can economize by bringing food from home or enjoying take-out from the comfort of our couch. Or we can take advantage of visiting our favorite restaurants during our stay. Getting to the mountain is hassle-free and only a short trip away. We enjoy an inexpensive breakfast and hit the trails moments later.
