Overview

Stowe House Rental Photos and Description

7 bedroom, Sleeps 20, Mountain Views, Outdoor Mecca

The property includes 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms in three separate dwellings set on an 8 acre hilltop, surrounded by 1000 acre active farm. The Country Estate is within 3/4 mile of downtown Stowe and about 7 minutes from Stowe Mountain Resort. Each of the 7 bedrooms is very tastefully decorated with a theme. The living room is large with seating for 15 with a large fireplace as it's center piece. The dining room features a cooking hearth fireplace and corner cabinets. You are surrounded by the original architecture of this farmhouse, with hand hewed beams and gorgeous hardwood floors. This house is perfect for a family reunion or for two/three families to share. In the winter there are hills for sledding and trails just off the property for XC Skiing and Snowmobiling on the adjacent VAS trail. The rolling terrain of the property features two ponds, tennis courts and 'field' swimming pool and activities for any outdoor enthusiast. 8 months of the year your mornings start with the cows grazing in the meadows, fish and often large birds seen around the large pond and many wonderful gardens that are fully maintained. Old stone walls, terraced landscapes and sculptured trees adorn the entire property.

About E Ward Bitter

We raised 6 children to embrace the outdoor life we were exposed to growing up. Now, with 8 grandchildren to enjoy the beautiful surrounding mountains, waterfalls and changing weather we feel our homestead continues to impress while it keeps on giving back to us. Stowe provides our family with incredible 'Farm to Table' foods, competitive and challenging out door activities, many 'top rated' restaurants, diverse natural surroundings, animal life and a 4 season resort that remains one of the best rated resorts in the world.

E Ward Bitter purchased this house in 2007

Why E Ward Bitter chose Stowe

We were exposed to this property by accident. We were on a one week vacation in Stowe and during a 'bad' snow day we decided to look at some houses for fun. When we came across Lilac Hill, we immediately knew the ice encased property was hiding something special from most 'viewers.' We picked up a family photo album of the previous owners, one of them a great designer from Montreal, and we saw a beautifully adorned, carefully landscaped home and property.

What makes this house unique

Unique views, incredible landscape, close proximity to the center of Stowe and Mountain Road. One of the older, very well maintained properties in Northern Vermont. It is really our own 4 season resort.

Excellent House!

  • 5 of 5
I used this house for a summer golf trip--not only was it in great shape, but it is in a beautiful location, and a great piece of land. The lake and pool was definitely a plus for the hot summer days. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Hi Michael,
Thank you for taking the time to respond. We are new to the home rental business and wish to avoid some of the caveats that so many home renters experience. We love our property (Lilac Hill) in Stowe and wish to protect it by being careful and selective as possible. This Fall, we are making additional upgrades to the facilities and interior design of some of the rooms.
Thank you again for being such considerate guests this summer!
E. Ward Bitter
