Beautiful 3 Bedroom 2 Bath Cottage, All Amenities On 12 Acres Of Woods
Fairy Tale Cottage that has been completely renovated with all major appliances,internet, Jacuzzi, Direct TV, gourmet kitchen etc. Surrounded by 12 acres , part of Sterling Forest, yet minutes from the base of Mt. Mansfield and all the restaurants and spas of Stowe. There are two fireplaces, one in the master bedroom and one adjacent to the major sitting room.
A wood-burning stove is essentially a third fireplace serving the the sitting/dining area and kitchen. Gourmet Kitchen with all new appliances equipped to create a gourmet meal or a simple snack. Sterling Brook runs through the property and hiking, cross country skiing and mountain biking trails are right by. Surrounded by magnificent forest yet a short distance to downtown Stowe with all of its great restaurants, spas, shops and some of the best down hill skiing in New England. Every season is magical from the warm summer days with craft festivals, farmers markets and 30 plus miles of hiking and biking trails. Autumn is a blaze of colors that are difficult to imagine until you see it. Winter brings the hush of snow and the thrills of skiing. Spring brings the flowers bursting out of the snow and the deep greens of the trees that you forgot about in the winter. This is truly a 4 season home.

Why Lynne Fagan Murray chose Morristown
This is our dream house with everything we ever wanted in a Vermont property. Deep in the forest with all the quiet and wild life and yet close enough to shopping, skiing and night life that we do not have to travel far if we want it. The property is magical with a Stone House, fireplaces and beautiful forest views from every window. There is also the wonderful Sterling Brook that runs through the property as well as cross country skiing trails, hiking and mountain biking trails and access to amazing wild life.
What makes this House unique
Tranquil peaceful beautiful surroundings but a house that has everything you need for surround comfort. Wood stove, fireplaces, Jacuzzi, gourmet kitchen, wine refrigerator and all that you need to be content at home yet night life and restaurants as well as down hill skiing and other year round activities near by. The best of both worlds.

Another great winter season!
Thank you Lynne for another great winter season at Stone Cottage. You made us feel welcome and are wonderful to work with. Once again, your home worked so well for our family of 5. We appreciate the constant upgrades to the house...wish we got to try out the new fire pit!! The setting is just beautiful and we loved hiking up at Sterling Gorge. We truly loved our time in Stowe. Thank you so much...we look forward to our next visit!
You are a very special family that we have loved having at Stone Cottage. For three full ski seasons you have been guests and you always leave the house in beautiful condition. You are becoming part of our family!
Wonderful, cozy, and comfortable!
Right from the first email with Lynne, I had a good feeling about this rental. We have stayed in many VRBO places, and this is 1 that my family hopes to return to!
The beds are super comfortable, the house is clean, well appointed, and a pleasure to be in. Barbara, the care taker is kind and helpful. Location is about 10 minutes from Stowe, and 20 minutes from the parking lot at the base of Stowe Mountain.
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and want anyone who stays there to feel like it is their home. We hope you will return as you were great guests.
Perfect getaway tucked in to the woods above Stowe
We arrived in Stowe on Thursday evening, only to find that our "dog friendly" hotel wasn't in fact so friendly. A frantic search led us to what looked like just what we were after - somewhere with space to ourselves, where we could leave the dog (who is well trained) unattended when we wanted to go out for a run or for dinner.
We quickly spoke with the owner Lynne, who was most accommodating and within an hour had checked out of our hotel and driven over to the Stone Cottage to meet the local property manager Barbara, who was great.
The cottage is everything you would hope for - tucked away in a secluded spot behind many trees. It is as cozy inside as it looks outside - but also very well furnished with all modern conveniences, a great kitchen, two great baths (one w jacuzzi for post ski - or in our case - post run soak), gorgeous formal sitting room, cozy dining/living room area and great back patio and garden. More than we needed but just a treat - for both ourselves - and our dog Boomer - all of us far happier here.
If you are a dog owner, as we are - then rest assured, Lynne understands - there were plenty of dog beds and blankets in the cottage to make a small family of pooches more than cozy. Little touches like the chess board were greatly appreciated too.
The cottage is a few miles (15 mins) drive outside of Stowe - near enough to pop in and get whatever you need and far enough out that you feel like you have the area to yourself. We will be back and will definitely return to the cottage. Great spot - very highly recommended.
You were wonderful guests and we were so happy we could "rescue" you and Boomer. We would love to have you return.
Cozy, Clean, Comfortable and QUIET.
I don't know where to begin with this property. One word sums up our experience at the Stone Cottage, OUTSTANDING. We truly enjoyed our stay. The location is not a far ride from Stowe, about 8 to 10 minutes. The Stone Cottage is much better than the hotel experience. The master bedroom was very comfortable. The home itself is very quaint and secure. The kitchen was great to have for preparing breakfast and a couple of dinners. We had our three Border Collies with us and they loved the property and surrounding area. Would we go back to the Stone Cottage? ABSOLUTELY! I HIGHLY recommend this property. Thank you Lynn for sharing your home with us. Barbara, thank you for being available to us.
You were wonderful guests and we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We love the house and the creek and woods and want everyone who stays there to love it as well. We hope you return some day.
Wonderful Ski Season Rental
Stone Cottage is located in beautiful Sterling Forest and just 10 minutes to town! This was our second ski season here and enjoyed every minute of it. The house worked perfectly for our family of 5 and we always looked forward to our weekends at Stone Cottage. The house was clean, cozy and had all the comforts of home. Lynne (the owner) is great to work with. She is responsive, accommodating and works hard to ensure that your stay is wonderful. We look forward to visiting again!
You were as usual wonderful guests and I know the ski season was great this year. Look forward to seeing the lift prices drop with the recent purchase of Mt. Mansfield by Vail. We hope you will return again.
Enchanting Cottage in the Woods
We enjoyed a lovely welcome with fresh flowers and a nice bottle of local wine .Everything we needed to make our stay comfortable was provided and any questions we had were quickly answered by the caretaker.
Our daily routine was to take a hike on the nearby trails and take in the glorious views--FABULOUS!!!
The cottage was warm,clean and cozy.Stowe restaurants and breweries were yummy and fun!
What a wonderful fall getaway we had!!
Thank you for your review. We continue to strive to make all guests have the best possible vacation in a place that will feel like a home, not just a rental property. We hope you will return soon.
The entire Stowe area is wonderful for four season activities. Hiking and mountain biking, wonderful food, farmer's markets and many local events. Every season has its special events.
