We are close to the Green Mountain Inn, the Stowe Community Church, and a short drive to the Stoweflake Resort and the Stowe Country Club. Bring your bikes and enjoy the award winning Stowe Recreation Path, a short walk from the home. We are close to the Stoweflake, and directly on the path to watch all the Hot Air balloons from the deck during the Stoweflake Balloon festival in July.

About Rose Matulionis
I've owned the 1860 House for over 30 years. Retired from my Washington DC position as CEO of a national public health association. The property is used as vacation rentals and as an Inn part of the year. I love to travel and try to spend the winter months in a warm climate. I currently keep active in public health by teaching an online course for George Washington University. I also dabble in oil painting and watercolors.
Rose Matulionis purchased this House in 1979
Why Rose Matulionis chose Stowe
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.
What makes this House unique
Great Village location in an exceptional ski resort village. Park the car and walk to shops, and restaurants, Well maintained historic property. Walk to the award winning recreation path used for walking, running, biking, cross-country skiing and leisurely strolls through the countryside. The Library and Art Center are directly across the street. Children will enjoy the nearby playground with lots of fun equipment.

10/10: Would recommend
Amazing kitchen, good location. We had a good time.
Fantastic Ski House!
Our group was made up of 5 families (9 adults, 4 children), and this house was perfect. The location is convenient to everything, the Family Room (with cozy fire) was large and inviting, and - importantly for our group - each family had its own bathroom. Rose was extremely responsive and helpful, and the house was spotless and well-apportioned. Highly recommended!
Fun time skiing!
The property is well maintained and the Great Room is very inviting. There were 12 of us and we had plenty of room. This was a great location because everything was so close by. I would certainly recommend this property to others.
Thank you so much for the nice comments.
Perfectly located, user friendly, comfortable and charming!
Rose's home is large but cozy and our family of fifteen had plenty of room. The home is centrally located, well stocked (Rose thought of everything) comfortable and charming. We all gravitated to the spacious living room and kept the fire going all evening. We hope to return next Thanksgiving week!
There were 8 adults and 5 children. We were very comfortable. It was like coming home to grandmas ho
There was a very modern kitchen but everything else is charmingly dated. Popcorn ceiling and fabulous historic beams. It was all spotless. Linens and towels nice and fresh. It's obvious the owner takes great pride in the gardens and house maintenance.
The location was the best. Close to Main Street shopping and restaurants.We had a ball for our fourDay family get together . The 1860 House had much to do with the success of our trip. We hope to come back next year
Super House with an AMAZING location!
This house was much larger than I expected. Three rooms/bathrooms on the 2nd floor, living space on the 1st floor, and 2 bed/bath on the ground floor. We had 4 families with pre-teen children. They absolutely loved staying on the ground floor. The adults loved the quiet on the 2nd floor.
The location was perfect! We were steps from the best homemade ice cream store in Stowe (we had some everyday of our vacation). Main street also had plenty of restaurants, stores and a supermarket all walking distance. The kids loved that it was easy to get around and liked to lead the way to our favorite shops.
Rose was wonderful! She was so attentive. Listen to all of the recommendations she offers. All of them were spot on. McCarthy's for breakfast, The Whip for dinner or lunch, and the Mac supermarket were our staples. We also had some complicated requests for bedding with our families, but she made it work.
This was our first time in Stowe during the Summer and it was Fabulous! We will certainly come back and when we do, we will look for Rose again. What a memorable vacation!
