Overview

Stowe House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Only minutes from downtown and the Mountain. Your three bedroom home away from home has all the things you are looking for in a getaway escape. Gorgeous mountain and valley views including a panoramic view of Stowe village, three decks, wood floors, two full bathrooms, and space for the kids and the adults to gather in the well proportioned living room complete with a Vermont fireplace. There is great sledding right out your back door. This nonsmoking, pet friendly house is available today. Please call or email. We accept credit cards and are able to accommodate last minute plans.

Check out our website for more pictures and information: www.stoweescape.com

Completely refinished: The house has been extensively refinished over the past five years with solid maple flooring in all the bedrooms, brand new Anderson windows designed to maximize the morning light and spectacular mountain and valley views, and complete remodels of both bathrooms including custom built cedar vanities with marble and granite counters. Also added; enhanced new lighting, state of the art laundry facilities, flat screen LCD television, and even a breakfast bar with kitchen pass through and modern leather bar stools. A Weber propane grill sits just outside the kitchen on the deck.

Caretaker: The house includes a small Caretaker's apartment. Our basement apartment has a separate entrance. It is occupied by a single long term tenant who ensures that the house is always safe and secure. Our caretaker/tenant has been with us for years, he is a member of the local community, manages a local store, and runs a day camp for kids. He ensures that the walkways are shoveled during the Winter months, making first tracks easy to get to! Our guests often do not even know our caretaker is in residence, unless they see him shoveling out the front door after a big storm!

About Joshua Slen

Picture is of me and two of my brothers when we were kids. Can you guess the decade? I live and work in Stowe, Vermont with my wife and three kids. We are avid skiers, hikers, and bikers. We enjoy all the Green Mountains have to offer and are thrilled to share it with our guests.

Joshua Slen purchased this house in 2005

Why Joshua Slen chose Stowe Area

We love that the house has views, privacy, is minutes from town, and is on a paved road. When we lived here we enjoyed sledding and playing with our dogs in the yard and running and biking right out the door.

What makes this house unique

Multiple decks: one small private deck off the master bedroom, a kitchen deck, and a balcony off the living room. A fenced yard for dogs. A just added 240 volt exterior outlet for our guests driving electric vehicles.

nice location just outside of town

  • 4 of 5

we rented this property for a mystery getaway weekend for 6 women and it was just as the description & photos listed on the website. you get exactly what's advertised, no surprises, which was great for our purposes. the property is a bit out of town so it's an easy trip for whatever you might need but lovely and quiet as well. the owner was helpful and easy to work with during the rental transaction. overall, I'm glad I found this property for our getaway and would suggest this property to others.

stowe property

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect.This was a working "vacation".We left the house every morning by 6 and did not return some evenings til after 10pm.The house was clean,the directions spot on,the listing description was acurate. The walk upstairs to the home is in need of repair.Josh came and nailed down the boards the day we alerted him.We did have difficulty getting hot water to the upstairs shower and again,Josh quickly fixed the issue.There is a spiral metal staircase that is slippery-I would suggest treads be placed on them.

We were there for the AKC Retriever Amateur Championships.We did see some local attractions.Suggest going to Morrisville for grocercies-the local Shaws tended to close early(8pm) and selection was limited.We went to Catus Cafe-food good-1 1/2 hours before we got our food.

I would recommend this site to others-no small children and no one with limited ambulation.

Great house, nice views, peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fun girls weekend get away! The property has a wonderful view of the mountains and it's a quiet and peaceful location. The house is a great place to relax and sit and read or open the windows and listen to the birds as the sun sets. We had fun cooking in the well equipped kitchen and the house provided us with a great space for five friends to relax and have a good time! The location is perfect, very close to all that Stowe has to offer! Highly recommend staying here! The property was well maintained and the owners were great about helping you book the space!

Lovely Mountain Home with Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

Looking at the mountains and how they changed with the light and weather conditions was great! The house is exactly as it is described. The living room has lots of natural light during the day and a cozy feel at night around the fireplace. Working in the fully-equipped kitchen was easy. Beds are comfortable. Working with Josh was easy and efficient. We were seldom aware of the tenant who lives below. He was very considerate.
