About the property

2+ bedroom 2 bath sleeps six, just minutes from Stowe Village and Ski Area.

Stowe Mountain Vista Guest Chalet is charming yet completely updated and modernized with beautiful new furnishings throughout. The open layout with lots of sunlight is perfect for smaller family groups or a romantic hideaway. Specifically designed to accommodate all, guests will reach the front door via a ramp walkway and enter into a well thought-out interior which includes over-sized doorways and one-level living.

The great room located on the main level has a cathedral ceiling with exposed beams creating a spacious yet cozy atmosphere, and a gas fireplace is yours to enjoy at the flip of a switch. Curl up on the comfy sofa and enjoy a glass of wine from the wine bar, or pour a hot cup of coffee or tea made in the gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops. Guests love that our kitchen is bright and open, and fully equipped with plenty of cookware and utensils.

All mattresses and bedding are new and of the highest quality; choose either the first bedroom conveniently located off the great room or the second bedroom and bunk area found on the lower level living space. Past guests frequently comment on how comfortable are beds are! The large mudroom entry on the lower level provides ample storage for sporting equipment and clothing, as well as direct access to the seating area on the lawn surrounded by our beautiful perennial gardens.

Conveniently located on a quite road just minutes from Stowe Village and it’s many shops and restaurants, the choice will be yours whether to leave this charming atmosphere for all Stowe has to offer or to sit back and relax in the sunny open living area taking in the views of Mount Mansfield and the Stowe Ski trails.

We’ve thought of everything and all that’s left to do is enjoy.

About Don and Mary Russell

Born and raised in Vermont and married 33 years ago just a few miles down the road, we decided to purchase this charming chalet circa 1961 in the spring of 2014. After lovingly adding our own touches we are eager to share this chalet with our guests.

Don and Mary Russell purchased this house in 2014

Why Don and Mary Russell chose Stowe Area

In 2012 we discovered how much we love sharing experiences we've enjoyed with our four sons by opening up our lake home to folks from all across the country. We knew it would only be matter of time before we found the perfect year-round mountain property to expand on what we had started.

Be sure and check out what our guest from our rental on Lake Champlain have to say about their experiences:

What makes this house unique

When considering our renovation it was important to us that our home be accessible by all. There are no steps to maneuver in order to reach the front door, and throughout the main level the doors are wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair. You can warm up by the fire with the flip of a switch or step into the oversized deluxe shower after enjoying all that Stowe has to offer.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this lovely Chalet in Stowe. The location is perfect (close to Stowe village area as well as Waterbury - so great selection of nice restaurants and shops) and less than an hour to Shelburne and Burlington. The house itself is BEAUTIFUL - very comfortable and cozy, with all the amenities you could ask for. Mary and Don (great hosts!) have seriously thought of everything. The beds, in particular, are extremely comfortable with lovely bedding and pillows. The high chair, baby gate and pack and play were wonderful touches that made our trip super convenient. It really did feel like home, I wish we could have stayed much longer. My 3 year old daughter kept saying over and over how much she loved the house with the red door and didn't want to leave. She is already talking about going back! Highly recommend this lovely house. Thank you Mary & Don!

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Stowe with another couple to take in a few brewery tours and good food and chose the chalet as our home base. It was clean, comfortable and in a great location. The home is as described in the pictures and the owners are wonderful.

We couldn't have asked for more and look forward to our next trip.

It was perfect for us. Everything we needed. Really comfy beds. Close to what we were there for!

  • 5 of 5

Clearly the owners thought of everything. There were 5 of us. Family of 4 with 2 adult daughters, plus one boyfriend, for the weekend. It worked out great even though the winter weather wasn't what we hoped for. Mary was super responsive, just keeping her informed of our status. We had no troubles at all. Instructions were clear, and we had everything we needed to have a fun and relaxing weekend. Thank you Mary and Don!

The perfect home for a weekend in Stowe

  • 5 of 5

The house was easy to find, wonderfully furnished and clean. We had a great Christmas weekend, Mary and Don were fantastic hosts who answered any questions we had. The house was close to both the restaurants and the mountain and it was easy to get around. Thank you for a great vacation weekend.
