Overview

About the property

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

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 condo and also in and around the office area/pool area.

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.

Warm and welcoming stay in the heart of Stowe

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully maintained condo close to Von Trapp Family Lodge, Mt. Mansfield State forest, and downtown Stowe . Staff was very friendly and helpful with area restaurants and attractions. The unit was very clean and accommodating It has beautiful grounds, and a cozy light-filled interior. It was our first time visiting Vermont and the location of the condo allowed use to visit a lot of attractions. We will certainly rent again on our next trip to Vermont.

Owner's Response: Delighted that these lovely guests so enjoyed their visit and we'd be delighted to welcome them back at any time. The Von Trapp Family (of Sound of Music fame) settled in the Stowe. area and have wonderful music events in their meadow. They have also opened their own microbrewery, which is proving to be very popular.

Very comfortable and centrally located in Stowe!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Joy’s condo, and it was wonderful. Joy was very helpful in getting us set up with arrival information and access to the WiFi. Once we arrived at the condo, we felt right right at home. The decorations gave the condo a cozy feel, the furniture was comfortable and relaxing, and overall, the condo was impeccably clean. The location of the condo is fantastic. It is in walking distance to great restaurants, shops and the rec path, and it was a short drive to the mountain. The village green was also super quiet and kid friendly! I highly recommend this condo and location to anyone looking for a getaway to Stowe!

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

Heading home after another lovely stay here at VG. Spent more time inside than usual due to some heavy rain so able to take advantage of the fireplace. Always feels like home here. Owners have thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable. Love the closeness to restaurants and shopping. Discovered new restaurant , Juniors@Stowe, highly recommend. Thank you for sharing your home again Joy.

Quiet, Convenient and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

After looking online at several lodging options in the Stowe area, we decided to stay in this condo. It's not as upscale as we are used to be but it was comfortable and we really liked the location. It was convenient to town and eating areas but out of the traffic zones. Pretty views all around. The bed is a bit too firm for my taste and doesn't have a box spring so it sits a bit low also. Given the options in the area, I would definitely recommend this condo. Nice condo for the price.

Owner's Response: We’re pleased that this guest felt that we offered good value and that he enjoyed the location and views. Our condo is fairly simply furnished, as shown in the photographs, as we feel that this represents the rustic ski area where it’s located.
