Overview

Stowe Area Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

BRAND NEW - 55' HD 3D TV - it even does 2D to 3D conversion! The Theatre just got a bit more amazing! And the BEST 3D movies - Rio, Tangled, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Avatar, etc. And we've just updated - AGAIN! New wooden floors though out - New Bed Spreads - Fresh Paint - Everything is once again perfect.

Think Location, Location, Location!

Our charmingly decorated 3 bedroom cozy condo features State of the Art Home Theatre System, and is located just strolling distance to the Mountain Road Village with it's wonderful selection of shops and Restaurants - and walking distance to everything in Stowe. The resort features an indoor pool and hot tub on site. Meanwhile - in your home away from home, a fireplace makes it cozy in winter, and a Mega sized A/C will keep cool and comfortable all summer. Although you'll hardly need the AC - surprisingly in Stowe you can go the whole summer without needing it!

New Fun Additions to our baby - Brand new top of the line Pots and Pans - and a 50' 3D HDTV with top of the line Blu-ray player and over 600 TV Stations - many of them HD. If you've been keen to see what these systems really look and sound like when you are able to pick and choose the video to watch - you must stay in the Theatre. Such fun - it's going to be hard to go outside, which is of course why you came to Stowe in the first place.

Unlimited FREE high speed internet access. So bring your laptops, ipads, and iphones. Such fun.

We've completely renovated - added central Air Conditioning, fancy new flooring with great carpets, and upgraded the room lighting. Best of all - we've added a full sized washer and dryer in the 2nd bathroom. Totally too handy! It's all been done to make the Theatre a comfortable place for you and your family ***

We're right off the Mountain Road - on the seasonal Trolley route to skiing, walking distance to shopping, great restaurants, and the Stowe Trail. On site there's an indoor heated pool, sauna and hot tub - plus a state of the art fitness center, sledding hill, and snow shoe trails. In season, there are 2 tennis courts, a volleyball court, BBQ grills, even a children's playground to enjoy. One of Vermont's top golf courses is within easy walking distance - plus of course biking, hiking, and 2 swimming holes. Guaranteed fun for everyone!

And the Theatre makes having a special holiday so easy. 3 comfortable bedrooms, (2 with Queen beds, plus our fun Kid's bedroom), huge screened in porch with views into the birches that fill our mountainside, but so very private. Wake to the quiet of snow falling, spend inside time watching movies on our amazing home theatre system, playing some of the many family oriented games we've provided, or reading. If your family's idea of fun is the active outdoor thing - you are in the right place. The options at the resort and around Stowe are wonderful.

So come on Down! (well, Up for most of you.) Come stay in Stowe's Theatre in the Woods. Relax in our beautiful three-bedroom/two-bath condo. Enjoy our 50-inch HDTV with a state-of-the-art home theatre set-up (includes over 600 TV channels, many of them HD (you have to see this to believe it - not the picture isn't faked) plus DVDs of our favorite videos). Enjoy the view of the snow falling on the birches from our huge screened-in porch; or just relax. Our fireplace is warm and cozy - our views wonderful - the 100% goose down duvet on the Masterbed just a sample of the comfort you can expect - plus there's our indoor pool, sauna and hot tub to enjoy - altogether, it's simply perfect!

'Most enjoyable stay - A holiday we'll cherish for years' Marg, Rick and Mike Downey, Ontario

'We're starting to think about our next ski trip and the consensus from the kids seems to be go back to Theatre in the woods.' Nancy Gray

Our beautifully decorated, fully equipped and very friendly condo is halfway between the center of Stowe and the mountain. We've equipped our gourmet kitchen with high end everything - from the appliances to the utensils, pots and pans, dishes and glasses. You won't lack for anything.

'Gold Crown Standard! (One of the nicest places we've ever stayed)' Michelle Willingham, Maryland

Mountainside is a full-service resort with an indoor pool (perfect even if the weather isn't!), a hot tub, tennis courts, game room, a kiddie playground, and walking trails. But don't hang around the resort -- In winter it's ski and snowboard till you drop at 'The Best in the East'. Or visit Ben and Jerry's to do the tour, and taste the ice cream! In summer the town comes alive with country living at it's best.

There's simply tons to do in Stowe - on and off the Mountain. So reserve your ski / snowboard / cross country holiday in our winter wonderland today. Stowe has won every award from 'Best in the East' to 'Best for Kids'! You are going to love what we have to offer!

There are 57 restaurants (5 in easy strolling distance) and 70 shops, as well as beautiful scenery, peaceful surroundings -- the best of the country! All roads lead to a great vacation in Stowe -- and at Mountainside Resort.

'Super decor throughout and the TV and sound system were magnificent. Watched Harry Potter - great!' Norman and Lavinia Grinsteed, Surrey England

About Leslie Eiser

My three kids grew up spending weekends and summers in Stowe - and now my Grand-kids enjoy the same beauty. We're pleased to share our home away from home with you.

Leslie Eiser purchased this condo in 1998

Why Leslie Eiser chose Stowe Area

Stowe is one of the most beautiful, clean smelling, relaxing places on earth. Ok - I'm prejudice, but trust me - your family is going to love it too.

What makes this condo unique

Relaxing in Stowe is one of the surprisingly easiest things to do in the world. It's not just about the awesome skiing and riding (although they are fun) - it's the atmosphere of the place. It's just easy living. And there are so many fun things to do. Not that I do most of them of course - I really just love to relax, hot tub, and watch movies. Sit on the porch rates pretty high as well. Must be I'm a country girl at heart - with a love of city amenities!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just thought we'd drop you a line since we forgot to sign the guest book.

We really enjoyed our stay at your condo last week.

The discounted rate was good for us too, since it was just my wife and I.

It's obvious that you take great measures to make sure your guests are comfortable and we really do appreciate it.

We once stayed at another unit in that complex and yours was definitely nicer.

The staff at the resort were very accommodating as well.

We have always loved Stowe and in the future we would definitely consider your place again.

Thanks again. We had a nice time.

Very relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

Great spot and nice accommodation. Wasn't clear however that this is part of a large complex of units which made it a bit noisy - dependent on the neighbour you end up with.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time! I am sorry to hear you found the neighbors noisy- I have to admit that's the first time I've heard that - the Theatre in on the 3rd floor (level with the parking lot - hence - Mountainside) - and the only unit above you is my personal unit - and we are hardly ever there - and very quiet of course when we are. Nevertheless - if you have trouble - please call the resort office. They are awesome at solving problems - if know about them. Again - great to hear that you loved the Theatre = it's my home away from home - and I totally love it of course. Leslie

Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

After an unfortunate experience staying at a dumpy apartment, walking into Theater in the Woods was a breath of fresh air. It is a comfortable, cozy, inviting place to stay in Stowe where we would, and probably will, return. Actually, I don't even think the photos on the web site do it justice. Theater in the Woods has all the amenities one could need in a home away from home and is very well taken care of. Nice to see such care and attention going into a rental home.

Thank you Leslie!

Beautiful escape for our family

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful location in a beautiful town! We LOVED the screen porch and especially the swing. The kids enjoyed the 3D movies (Wreck it Ralph and Book of Life), the on property playground and the pool. We visited Ben & Jerrys, hiked to a waterfall and let the kids splash in the creek, and visited the Trapp family lodge. Other than that, we relaxed and refreshed with our family and friends at this lovely property. Thank you for sharing your space with us!

Owner's Response: Isn't that brand new swing absolutely fab? I loved it when I saw it - had to get it for my home away from home! And I'm really glad you guys had time to watch those 3 D movies. I am particularly fond of Avatar and Journey to the Center of the Earth. Glad to hear that Stowe, and the Theatre in the Woods worked perfectly for you and your family. My idea of the great review. Thanks. Leslie

Great family stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed a few places in Stowe and really enjoyed our 5 nights at the Theater! This is in a great location, walk or drive to some great restaurants and everywhere else in the area you need to be. Check-in was so easy and Leslie made everything very easy. The condo is very clean (love very clean bathrooms !), well organized, fresh, nicely furnished and comfortable fora family of 4. The 3-D TV was a blast for the kids (8 and 10) and there were a lot of great movies to choose from! Kids also loved the basketball hoop and meadow to play catch. The front office and owner were both very responsive to any concerns or questions we had.

We love Piecasso, The Bench, Dutch Pancake House, PK coffee, and Trapp Family Lodge bakery/brewery. Hike at Bingham Falls, Drive to Smuggler's Notch, biking on the bike path (AJ's was great for rentals and bike purchase), and touring nearby towns, it was all a great time and the Theater was a perfect home base. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Oh I totally Agree - AJ's is the best place for bikes - they have great bikes (really fancy ones to basic models) and reasonable prices. Be careful on that first down towards the Stowe Path! It's exciting. And of course I'm thrilled you had a Wonderful time!. Leslie

Great location for a family or group!

  • 5 of 5

It pretty much doesn't get any better than this for a family or group stay in Stowe. Location was great, with nice scenery, and close-by restaurants, bars, and shops, many even within walking distance if you feel like taking a stroll. The size of the resort was perfect, with separate bedrooms for privacy, and a nice enclosed porch out back. Lots of board games and DVDs to keep you occupied if you want to change it up and spend a quiet evening in. Everything was updated, clean, and well-maintained, and the staff was all extremely friendly, helpful, and responsive, in person and via email. I often stay in Stowe as a hub when traveling solo to VT, but this time, with the wife and 19-mo-old along, this was a completely ideal situation. As a craft beer enthusiast, there are many good places to check out nearby, and every time I visit it seems like there's something new popping up. My recommendation this time around is The Bench, a couple miles up the road...pretty much can't beat the taplist there, and the food is good as well. As we do this trip annually, we hope to stay here again next year, and in further years to come!

Owner's Response: Wow - I'm so glad you guys had such a good time. So - The Bench is good, eh? It's very new - and in addition to beer - does wood fired pizzas. So I shall definitely have to give it a try. Thanks for a wonderful review - I'm also so happy when people have so much fun at the Theatre.
