Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, the owners were very helpful and nice. We had 6 people and everyone felt at home and enjoyed the house and the yard. The location was very convenient to all the AKC National Amateur Field Trial events, we would recommend the property to anyone wanting a home away from home for their stay in Stowe.

Perfect place to stay with three families in the Stowe area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Rufe House for a ski weekend in March and we couldn't have asked for a more comfortable place! We were three families with five kids between the ages 3 and 7. The kitchen was big enough to cook and eat together, it was also very well equipped (high end brands and plenty of everything you need for a big group and a nice dinner). Everything was very clean and the size of the place was just right for us! The house has a very nice ski cottage flair with lots of wood and an open design. The owners are very friendly and helpful, Carolyn sent us a big information package before our arrival. We would definitely stay in their place again!

Perfect for groups

  • 5 of 5

Came up here with a group of seven guys for a ski trip, and everything was as advertised. Carol was very easy to work with and had great communication throughout the process. The house was in a good location central to many mountains within an hour drive, with Stowe being the closest. I will definitely be looking in to renting this property again in the future and would recommend the same to anyone else.

We had a great time at the Rufe House! It fit our group of 9 perfectly. The accommodations were very clean, plenty of beds and the big kitchen table worked nicely. The house is situated on a beautiful private lot, yet close enough to all the attractions. Carolyn and Al were wonderful to work with and we hope to make it up for another stay soon!

Rufe Stowe House

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 adults had a great stay at the Rufe Stowe house for New Years. The owners, Carolyn and Al, are wonderful people. Carolyn provided every detail needed ahead of our stay as well as responded to any questions I had, by both phone and email, right away. The house has 4 bedrooms and is very well suited to a group or family. The kitchen and living room are spacious and open to one another, which is great for spending time at the house après ski. Also, the kitchen is fully stocked w/ pots and pans, spices, etc. and has a very large table perfect for larger groups. We used the kitchen to both cook and as central spot to hang out at the house. I would highly recommend the Rufe house for anyone planning a trip to Stowe.
