Great properly, lots of privacy and set up perfectly for groups!

  • 5 of 5

Big group went up for a few days, and this place was a perfect fit. Highly recommend for mid-large groups looking to enjoy the outdoors and having a cozy place to come back to and enjoy yourselves at the end of a long day.

Well utilized space for comfort and larger groups.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and the home is convienent for larger groups who need multiple beds. The kitchen is well stock for cooking and has a larger table for eating and group gatherings. The edges of the house do get cold at time but is manageable if you leave doors open and blankets. The living area could us an update but was comfortable and the fireplace was nice and was easy to use. Overall it's an average house that checks all the boxes so you can have a great time around Stowe or other nearby attractions. We would definitely stay again.

Stowe is located at the foot of Mt. Mansfield. Enjoy the best skiing in the East whether you chose alpine skiing + snowboarding at Stowe Mountain Resort or x country skiing on groomed trails at the Trapp Family Lodge. Snowshoe on Stowe Recreational Path; treat yourself to a sleigh ride or a visit to one of Stowe's world class spas. Browse through Stowe's 70 shops and chose from 50 restaurants for gourmet dining experiences. In warmer seasons you can bike, roller blade or walk along the nationally acclaimed 5.5 mile Recreation Path that starts in the village and travels to the mountain. There are many shops, restaurants, swimming holes, picnic areas and events to stop and enjoy along the path. For more of a challenge there are plenty of cycling and hiking trails at Mt Mansfield and Smuggler's Notch. If you like horseback riding, golf, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, swimming, antiquing, music festivals or a scenic drive during the fall foliage, Stowe is the perfect vacation choice.

Other Activities: Minutes to Stowe Mountain Resort and 30 minutes to Smuggler's Notch
