The house has solid maple flooring in all the bedrooms, Anderson windows designed to maximize the morning light and spectacular mountain and valley views. Both bathrooms include custom built cedar vanities and marble / granite counters. We have recently enhanced the lighting, rebuilt the stairs and decks off the kitchen and driveway, replaced the living room furniture with a brand new couch and leather side chairs, and cleared and topped to open up the spectacular views (Fall 2016). The house also has state of the art laundry facilities, 2 flat screen LCD televisions, and 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 is a member of the local community and has been for years. 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 240 volt exterior outlet for our guests driving electric vehicles.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Property was perfectly close to everything, but far enough to have privacy, great views, fence and willingness to accept dogs was great! Neighbor very friendly too. Full kitchen with everything you could need, very accommodating. Dark, great for stargazing!



Thank you very much, I would definitely come back.

As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

My family's first vacation rental home did not disappoint. Just outside the town of Stowe and a short drive to Mt. Mansfield and Ben & Jerry's, it's a perfect jumping off point for anyone visiting the region. The kids made great use of the games and movies during down time and the home's layout was such that my wife and I had privacy when needed.

Joshua was responsive and attentive to all our needs. We couldn't ask for a better host.

Contemporary house in Stowe with a view of the town and mountains

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a comfortable stay at your house. It would be safer if the outside steps were better lighted at the bottom. Everything else was great. We would rent the house again!

GREAT!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. It fit all of our family's needs. Everything was right on point down to the directions. The house was very clean and the information sheet left was very informative and well as all the brochures. It was conveniently located to family attractions, which we enjoyed. I will definitely consider renting it next summer.

Great property. Minutes away from Stowe but far enough to not deal with tourists.

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect. Cabin is very nice, we'll appointed with a great view of the valley and Stowe. Even though not a huge property layout allows for privacy in the master while the living area or upstairs bedrooms are occupied by other family members or kids. Kids loved sledding down the hill onto private drive and we loved the three decks offering additional outdoor space.

Owner of property exceptional. Family is already planning next trip and wants to go back to this property.

Great place for a family

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The place was cozy, clean, and had plenty of room. Our kids, dog included, loved the yard, tree house, sledding hill, and woods. Tickets to the Stagecoach Cinema are free, so many movies and comfort, we almost didn't go skiing!
