I'm recently retired from my work as CEO of a national public health associatoin in Washington DC. I've owned this charming Vermont home since 1979 and in additional to vacation rentals, use in as an Inn part of the year. I love to travel and try to spend the winter months in a warm climate. I've been divorced for 24 years.
Rose Matulionis purchased this house in 1979
This is a home on the national register of historic places. I've enjoyed renovating it and preserving the integrity of the property. The Village location is ideal for me. I can enjoy all shops and restaurants and never have to get in the car. It is really convenient and a pleasure to walk to the recreation path, and hiking and biking trails. Stowe is a unique little village with an international flare. It was used by the British vacation company, Crystal Holidays for multiple years to bring Europeans to the ski area in the winter months.
Great Village location in an exceptional ski resort village. Walk to shops and restaurants. Well maintained historic property.
Great home with plenty of room for whole family. Rose was very hospitable and even arranged to pick up groceries. Walking distance to downtown. Very convenient. Beds very comfortable and kitchen well supplied.
It was truly a home away from home..
We came with our 5 grown-up children to stay for a wedding. The inn is beautiful, very comfortable, and what a great location right in town. Rose was very considerate and even left us a snack! We had a wonderful stay.
The 1860 House may be a historic property, but critical comfort amenities like modern bathrooms and an updated stainless steel kitchen with granite counters make it very easy to settle in and relax. Some items we especially appreciated:
* quality mattresses and bedding in each of the 5 bedrooms
* 4 en-suite bathrooms and one "across the hall" from the accompanying bedroom (we had this one and it was fine)
* 5 essentially equal bedrooms (1 king, 2 flexible twin/kings, 2 queens) which works very well for 5 couples
* Well-stocked kitchen with plenty of plates, glasses, cookware and even sharp knives
* Very adequate off-street parking in the rear
* lovely rear deck with plenty of room for all to have coffee in the morning, cocktails in the evening
* there is a 6th full bath on the main level for even more flexibility
* high speed WiFi throughout
* lovely living area with comfortable and upscale seating
* Best of all the property is just one block off Main Street in the center of Stowe--extremely easy for everyone to explore shops, get an ice cream, or just stroll the lovely Main Street.
We spent a weekend there in August with 4 other couples to catch my granddaughter in a production at the Stowe Community Theater and everything was perfect. Rose is a responsive and responsible owner and being at the 1860 House was a big part of making our weekend a huge success.
Great village location. Well equipped and maintained. Our three families were very comfortable, cooked big dinners and curled up with cozy wood stove / fireplace. Owner kept in touch though we needed nothing.
We had a wonderful week at the 1860 House. The property is charming and so centrally located that you can easily walk around the corner for a good meal and shopping -or sit by the fire at night and eat in. The kitchen is newly renovated so it's a joy to prepare meals. We also liked that all the major Stowe attractions are within 15 minute driving distance We would definitely stay again!
Experience the charm of a 200 year old town at this center village location. Enjoy walking to village shops and restaurants, or sitting in front of the warm fire with a good book. During the winter months, take the trolley that starts nearby to the Stowe Mountain Resort for Vermont's best skiing and snowboarding at Mt Mansfield or Spruce Peak.
