Spacious, clean, comfortable and private

  • 5 of 5

The Rufe house provided a very pleasant stay for our group of 8 (it could have easily handled several more as well). There was plenty of space centered around a beautiful, high ceiling living room. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The property was set well off the road and very private, surrounded by a lot of trees. Plenty of room to park.

The kitchen was spacious and fully equipped , the fireplace made the living room super inviting and the bedrooms and bathrooms were impeccably clean.

The house is only 7 minutes drive form the beautiful Stowe Village .

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
