About Fina Johnson

I bought this house because of it's incredible views, proximity to town and the mountain, yet privacy in it's own way. I lived here for 7 years and loved every min of it and decided to keep it so that others could enjoy it after I moved away.

Fina Johnson purchased this house in 1996

Why Fina Johnson chose Stowe Area

Good living spaces for adults and kids between the living spaces upstairs and downstairs. Large garden and expansive views. Great light!

What makes this house unique

Proximity to town and mountain, yet private.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful house, beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

Of the houses that I have rented in Vermont, this one tops them all. The house is open and well decorated and feels like home as soon as you step into the foyer. The kitchen opens to the dining room and living room and is a perfect space for being together with loved ones. The bedrooms are comfortable and cozy. The house, nestled on a hill above town, affords a million dollar view of the Worcester mountain range and the village of Stowe. The outdoor hot tub that sits on the deck directly overlooking the meadow cannot be beat. And there are fireplaces in the main bedroom and the living area. This house is an amazing retreat and I am already looking forward to returning with my family.

This is one of the coziest, most charming homes in Stowe. Every detail has been considered to create a warm and inviting ambiance, which is also practical and convenient. The house is small, but affords ample room for quite a few people. It is easily accessible from the village, yet utterly private, and offers expansive views of the countryside. It is comfortable and fully equipped....a delight in every sense. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

I found this Stowe home to be charming, warm and inviting. Convenient to the Village and also the ski hill. Mostly I would return again and again because of the view. Not the overwhelming mountain view that is common in Stowe but a pastoral, bucolic view of mountains and the valley below that is unsurpassed.

Very homely place with great kitchen & bathroom facilities. Close to town & yet seems remote when sitting on the verandah.Would not hesitate to rent again when next in USA.

This is a terrific little house on a beautiful property overlooking Stowe. It is comfortable and cozy, with a warm and inviting ambiance, an updated, well-supplied kitchen that makes entertaining easy, a wrap-around deck affording great views of Stowe, and a hot tub. You can walk or bike down the hill to the Rec Path or into town. We've rented for a month during the Summer over the past two years and are looking forward to our third summer. Everything you would want in a great getaway. Family and friends love it. It's our home away from home.
