Overview

Stowe Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Village Green is a four seasons resort and, located in the upper village, our property is well-situated with views of the golf course and spectacular mountains. It's easy to relax here, with a spacious open-plan living area with gas fireplace and well equipped kitchen downstairs and comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs.

The main Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak ski areas are only about five miles away and the free ski bus stops within a few yards of the property.

Even in winter, the area has many attractions for the non-skier, such as art galleries, museums and, of course, shopping.

For hikers, cyclists and roller-bladers there is a superb recreation path leading to the lower village, with yet more restaurants, shops and galleries.

Life always feels good at Village Green and we're always sorry when we have to leave...

About Joy Tracey

Joy & Edward Tracey: We're a British couple with two grown-up sons and we've enjoyed many wonderful vacations in various places in the USA, so it was a natural choice when we decided to buy our holiday home. We always maintain that when we're on holiday, we need somewhere that is immaculately clean, comfortable, well-equipped, well-situated and welcoming, giving us a real 'home from home' where we can relax and this is what we try to provide in our Village Green condo.

Joy Tracey purchased this condo in 2001

Why Joy Tracey chose Stowe Area

We're both keen skiers and hikers and Edward also enjoys golf, so these facilities were all taken into account when we chose Stowe. There were several other locations that we considered, but we fell in love with Stowe because of the superb sking, wonderful golf, the village atmosphere, friendly people, spectacular scenery, excellent restaurants, shops and galleries - it's a choice we've never regretted!

Because we live in England, we had to buy somewhere where we could rely on the place being well-maintained in our absence and to know that any potential problems that our guests might have would be resolved promptly, courteously and fairly. After doing some reasearch on this, we found that the Village Green staff were perfectly suited to meet our requirements and, after more than ten years, we have even more confidence in them.

Our two sons and their girlfriends join us each year to ski and they love it as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

Apart from being adjacent to Stowe Golf/Country Club and ideally situated for the Mount Mansfield/Spruce Peak ski areas, Village Green is right on the nationally acclaimed Stowe Recreation Path, used solely for walkers and non-motorised transport, such as cycles, rollerblades, etc. The total loop is 11 miles long, but various shops and restaurants can be accessed from loop. The scenery is amazing. Away from the Recreation Path, there are endless opportunities for cycling and hiking. Whilst using our condo, guests have the use of the Village Green facilities: indoor & outdoor heated pools, hot tub, tennis courts, sauna, games room, coin-operated laundry, free wi-fi in the office area, etc

Guestbook comments from the owner

We truly enjoyed our stay at Village Green and the condo unit was great; very comfortable living and dining space, well equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds and bathroom space. Setting was beautiful and we were able to snowshoe out the front door. Staff at the front office are very helpful; we left some clothes in the unit at the end of our visit and they mailed the items to us the next day. We look forward to our return.



We will definitely come back to you for our next visit to Stowe; we are actually itching for a long weekend at Stowe this winter if possible. I notice your unit is booked for most weekends this season, but we'll periodically check your calendar if we pin down some times for a visit.

Wonderful place to stay at Stowe

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay during the first weekend of March. The condo was exactly as described; however, it was even more roomy than the pictures indicated - perfect for our family. It was very clean, comfortable, and quiet yet convenient to everything. We can't wait to stay again next year! And, the owners are so lovely and were a pleasure to work with - they were so on top of all of the arrangements.

Just as described

  • 5 of 5

We came to Stowe for some spring skiing and the unit met our needs perfectly. It had ample room and was in a convenient location, close to skiing and many restaurants and shops. It was also very clean and well maintained and the registration process for the complex was simple and helpful. I would have enjoyed a faster internet connection but that fact would not deter us from renting this unit again. Overall the condo was just as described! Thank you for a lovely stay.

Owner's Response: It's a pleasure to hear that our guests have enjoyed their visit and that everything is as described. The internet speed available in Stowe isn't the fastest in the world, but we're assured by the providers (Fairpoint) that we have the maximum speed available at the moment, but we will continue to keep checking!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriend's and I always enjoy the Village Green. The location is perfect for us... Walk to the rec path, 5 minutes to Trapp Lodge skiing and Stowe mountain.We love that you can park right in front of your door and there are no stairs to carry your gear up and down. The units are spacious and the hot tub and pool are always clean.

This unit was nice with updated living room furniture, and was clean as always.

The one flaw we have found, and it's a BIG one in my opinion, is the mattresses.All of the units, especially this one, had very uncomfortable mattresses. My bed had springs poking through right into my back.

I can't imagine it would be that much to replace 3 mattresses at a large wholesale store. I hope the owners will consider this request, because we really do enjoy these condos.

Owner's Response: 12th March 2016 update: VIllage Green maintenance has confirmed that they have replaced the mattresses, so we hope that this resolves the query. We'd be very happy to welcome these guests again. 5th March 2016: We're so pleased that these guests enjoyed Village Green, but very disappointed that they found the beds uncomfortable, especially as no-one else has mentioned them. However, as one of the purposes of asking for guest feedback is to identify any potential problems, we are grateful that this has been brought to our notice. Whilst we do "test drive" the beds a couple of times a year, Village Green maintenance is responsible for replacing mattresses. I have contacted them and they assure me that if any guests complain, they make every effort to replace the mattress quickly and will be checking those in our condo immediately. Hopefully, this will resolve the problems and these guests will find the beds comfortable if they visit again.

Great condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice and comfortable condo in a great location. We stayed here for a girls getaway ski week in February, and we had plenty of room for 4 adults. The furniture is super comfortable which was a nice treat after a day on the slopes. The open layout allowed for the cook to continue to chat with the rest of the group while preparing dinner. Joy was a pleasure to work with - very attentive. And the folks at Village Green were very welcoming and available if we needed anything. We didn't.... the condo had everything we needed including a very well equipped kitchen. The condo is in a quiet location just off of Mountain Rd... far enough away to be peaceful but close enough to walk to some great restaurants. I would definitely stay here again!
