About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come stay at Our Home Away From Home when you visit Mt. Mansfield and the beautiful town of Stowe. This 3 bedroom condominium with 2 bathrooms, located just 5 miles away from the mountain, offers everything you need for a perfect vacation.

Here is an economic solution to your desire for a Stowe vacation. Our family of 5 quickly outgrew the traditional hotel room. We needed 2 hotel rooms in order to have enough space. We lugged coolers and suitcases back and forth from our car. Save money while enjoying your family vacation this year!

At Our Home Away From Home the Master bedroom features a queen bed, wall mounted flat screen TV with cable and DVD, and an attached full bath. The additional 2 bedrooms have 2 twin beds and one full size bed and share a full bath. Hair dryers provided. You will find ample closet space and storage space to place your belongings. Store your skis inside in the tiled entry-way.

Just like home, the fully-equipped galley kitchen allows you to cook, bake or re-heat wonderful meals. Save money by having your breakfast at home! Or bring dinner in! You will find a refrigerator, glass-top stove, microwave, dishwasher, complete dishes and flatware for 12, serving ware, blender, toaster, colander, mixer, mixing bowls, cookie sheets, tea kettle, pots, and pans. Your home away from home!

There is an open living area with lots of windows and full sun during most of the day. Comfortable seating for 6 to enjoy the HDTV and supply of videos. A toasty propane stove allows you to adjust the room temperature to your comfort or use the air conditioning in the summer. A large dining table allows seating for 6 and high speed internet to cruise for area information or stay in touch with those not fortunate enough to join you at your home away from home.

Alfresco dining at Our Home Away From Home. During the summer you can enjoy the teak table and chairs on a large private deck overlooking the Worcester Range.

During your stay, you and your family will enjoy all the benefits of Mountainside Resort. There is a large indoor pool with sauna and hot tub. Overlooking the pool, in the common area above, is a billiard table, large screen TV, and pinball machines.

There's no end to things to do. Outdoor activities in the area to name a few include; downhill and cross country skiing, bicycling, rollerblading, hiking, swimming, gliding at the nearby airport, and fishing. Take a long walk on the Stowe Recreation Path which leads to the quaint village of Stowe. Trek your way to some of the prized secluded spots Stowe has to offer... swimming holes, waterfalls, pot holes and gorges.

For over 20 years, our family has enjoyed all this town has to offer. We hope you'll finding it as appealing as we have.

About Gene Brown

I've lived in Connecticut all of my life but first discovered Stowe with my father and brother in 1973. Over the next 25 years I made annual visits to enjoy the unprecedented skiing on Mount Mansfield. In the late 90's my wife and I took our first summer trip to Stowe with our 3 boys. Most people do not consider Stowe a year round vacation destination, but to our pleasant surprise we found there's so much more to Stowe than skiing. Other seasons in Vermont offer the opportunity for hiking, biking, exploring caves, and swimming in waterholes, water falls and gorges. So we just kept coming back.

Gene Brown purchased this condo in 2002

Why Gene Brown chose Stowe Area

After a few years of winter/summer hotel stays in our newly discovered year round vacation destination we were totally hooked. The biggest problem we had was that we had to drag coolers into hotel rooms, eat out every night, and now that the boys were getting bigger, we had to rent two hotel rooms every vacation. Mountainside Resort is only five miles away from Mount Mansfield making it an ideal location for our family. Staying in a three bedroom condo gives us plenty of room to spread out and relax creating the feeling of a true vacation.

What makes this condo unique

This vacation property is truly our home away from home! Meals are less-expensive and stress-free. We can economize by bringing food from home or enjoying take-out from the comfort of our couch. Or we can take advantage of visiting our favorite restaurants during our stay. Getting to the mountain is hassle-free and only a short trip away. We enjoy an inexpensive breakfast and hit the trails moments later.

Clean, Comfortable, and Close!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 friends had a GREAT time in Stowe this past weekend! Gene's place was very accommodating and fit all of us comfortably. It was very clean and neat and was ready right when we got there at 3:00 to check in. It was the perfect distance from the mountain and from all of the shops and restaurants in town. It was a pretty central location to everything that we did. It was great to have a full kitchen and 2 bathrooms. We all thought the beds were SUPER comfy and slept great. The condo is a very short walk from the pool and hot tub and we had no problem power walking the short distance in the freezing cold in our bathing suits and towels. Had no problem with parking at all and check out was very easy, although the directions the main office gave us didn't really tell us what to do with the towels that were used. Overall, we were all very satisfied and had a great time staying at your place and definitely recommend it to those looking for something right in the middle between the mountain and the town!

Had a good time

  • 3 of 5

Our group of 4 stayed here over 2016 Thanksgiving weekend(CDA). The lot not spacious but was comfy enough for the 4 of us and the view was great from balcony. Kitchen very well equipped. On the less good note we have to say that a better communication between reservation peoples and cleaning staff should be worked on. We arrive at 3pm and could not enter the condo before 5pm, as it was not cleaned from previous tenants, and according to the cleaning lady we caught on the fly that was cleaning another unit ours was not even on her list to be cleaned? .We think the owners should think on upgrading the condo by taking out the carpets all over the unit, that gets very dirty,replacing them by another kind of floor cover that get cleaned better. But in and out it was a great stay the mountains all around were offering us a great show with all the colors and at night we cooked and ate at the condo enjoying TV.

Owner's Response: We appreciate feedback from all of our guests so we can ensure a pleasant stay for everyone that visits Stowe and stays in our unit. We've asked the resort General Manager to verify that the cleaning schedule is prioritized based on the day's check-in, understanding that there are peak seasons where this can be challenging, but very important for our guests to get the most of their holiday. A few years ago we updated our floor covering and chose a soft, thick, high quality carpet for the bed rooms and living room for the comfort of our guests. Many guests visit in the colder winter months of ski season and like the warmth that carpet provides. Once again, we do appreciate the suggestion of selecting an alternate floor covering and will certainly consider this during our next unit upgrade. Sincerely, Gene and Karen Gene

Had an excellent long weekend in this clean and comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (party of 5 adults) stayed here for 2011 MLK weekend and had a great time. This condo was just what we were looking for. Spacious and comfortable enough for the 5 of us. Cleanliness was a requirement which this condo met. The kitchen is fully functional supplying all the essential cookware, flatware and china. We cooked all our meals and were able to enjoy the football game on the cable TV after a great day of skiing. This is the kind of value for the price that I look for in vacation rentals. I will definitely rent this home again for our next trip back to Stowe.
