Amazing home. Loved our stay and would recommend to others

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Morristown, VT. Only 10 minutes down the road from all the action in Stowe but far enough to enjoy the peacefulness VT has to offer. House easily slept and accommodated our group. Would absolutely rent again and would recommend to any group, small or large, looking to get away. The owners were very clear and easy to communicate with. No complaints at all. Thank you!!

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
