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. Digital amenities such as free wifi and cable television are available. 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 our 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 36 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

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.

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.

What prior guests have commented most on is how unbelievably clean the chalet is. As a family with allergies that use the space ourselves, we are committed to providing our guests with a clean and comfortable home.

Perfect Chalet

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here over the Thanksgiving holiday. The house is in immaculate condition with plenty of room for our group of 5. The extra large mud room was great as there was more than enough room for everyone's gear without feeling cramped. You can tell Don and Mary took everything into consideration when renovating the home and decorating. The overall feel of the house was open and warm. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the utensils and cookware you might need to make breakfast or a late night snack. There was even a pizza a pan that came in handy when reheating some left over Piecasso pizza. The games in the closet and a tv with cable and Netflix ensured we always had something to do after the slopes. Check in and check out was a breeze especially with the great communication. Thanks again Don and Mary for being great hosts.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for my husband's 35th birthday. We wanted to go to Vermont to hit all the local breweries. This house was perfect for our weekend! We had a group of 6 adults and everyone fit in the house comfortably. The house was very clean and nicely updated. Everyone in our party commented on how comfortable the beds were. The location was perfect for us and there were great places to eat in town.The owners were easy to communicate with and accessing the house was very convenient. I would highly recommend this house and look forward to returning in the future!

Surprisingly Cozy and Close to Stowe

The listing does a good job of showing the property and accommodations, however we were still surprised at the level of comfort and quality of the home during our stay.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This chalet was perfect in every way. It was so clean and full of great amenities. Even in August, the house temperature was very comfortable and even cooler in the lower level. It was close to town, yet far away enough to feel ike you were away from it all. We had our elderly parents with us who had some mobility challenges, and it was perfect for them since they did not have to go up and down stairs and there were 2 walk-in showers. We loved it in every way-we would love to return soon!

Just what was needed.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family of five and enjoyed everything about the Chalet and Stowe. The house was clean and inviting. Our oldest son uses a walker and the accessibility made the trip even more relaxing as he was able to navigate from the car into the house and throughout the entire first floor. The accessible shower was also great. We will be looking to spend another vacation here soon.
