About the property

3 Bedrm, 3 bath ~Updated, Close To Town & Mountain Activities

Relax in this 2950 sq ft condo ( sleeps 8-10 ) complete with first floor master suite. There are 2 beautiful, fireplaces. The living room has one wood burning and the master bedroom is gas. We fell in love with the Stonybrook Resort because of its proximity to everything in the Stowe area. Spruce Peak and Mt. Mansfield are approx 10 minutes from Stonybrook as we are about half way up the mountain Rd. At the end of our dead end street is a swimming pool and tennis courts for summer enjoyment. In winter, we go hiking & snowshoeing or X-C Skiing on the trails surrounding our property as the community maintains them year round. The management here is truly remarkable - they plow, cut the grass, salt the walkways provide firewood, etc. Our photos tell the story in terms of comfort & style - we decorated it in neutral forest tones with a 'Pottery barn' feel in the bedrooms. First floor has a front deck entrance leading into a spacious mud room. In December 2013, we built a new, top of the line cook's kitchen complete with granite counter tops and all new appliances including a commercial 6 burner stove. Our kitchen opens into the living room with plenty of counter space, 4-counter stools and wine refrigerator. We have a farm table in dining room that expands to seat 10, vaulted living room and 3 season porch overlooking a beautiful large pond, modern full bath plus a separate, first floor, master bedroom suite with beautiful bathroom boasting radiant heat, 2 sinks, whirlpool & separate glass enclosed tiled shower. Master bedroom also has a beautiful stone, wood-burning fireplace, private deck, double closets and plenty of drawer storage. Second floor has 2 additional bedrooms ( one with queen bed/pvt deck w mountain views and the second bedroom has 1-queen bed and 2-twin beds plus large closet, skylight and extra storage. These 2 bedrooms share the over sized, jack & Jill bath. Lastly, there is a very large great room w skylights and large windows with great views of the mountain tops. This is our primary TV room and office. In 2013, we added a lower level that is perfect for a recreation room - there's a flat screen TV, arcade game and a pull out couch. We also built a laundry room and added a new front loading washer and dryer. In 2016, we upgraded the first floor by adding a seemless glass and tile shower, replaced the rugs with awesome tile that everyone thinks is wood! We are always making improvements to suit our lifestyle and take pride in providing a quality vacation experience to our renters. We also updated the 2nd floor bath with new tile floor, and cabinets w/granite countertops.

Why Louise Decker chose Stowe

Louise worked for the Stowe area Assn in the winter of 1978 and always loved being in Stowe. Over 30 years ago we began coming to Stowe for Ski vacations and always dreamed of owning a second home in this location. We looked at many single homes and condominiums and chose Stonybrook because of its unique location and benefits.

What makes this condo unique

We chose the Stonybrook resort because of it location, halfway between Mt. Mansfield and the charming town center. Additionally, we are steps from the 5 mile town recreation path that connects the two where we walk and bike in the summer and Cross-Country Ski in the winter. We are walking distance to popular restaurants. As if this is not enough...the resort contains multiple tennis courts, swimming pools and a club house with fitness room, game room, hot tub and a sauna.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our first time to Stowe and we couldn't imagine staying any place better thanhere. Truly a home away from home. The hardest decision was whether to cook dinner in the awesome kitchen or go out! The location is great and the setting is even better. We recommend taking a hike to the Pinnacle Summit! Looking forward to our next visit. Thanks for sharing your home.

Amazingly beautiful home, location, experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t express how perfect our experiences were here!!! There were 6 of us celebrating a Girls Birthday weekend! The owner has thought of absolutely everything to make this home lovely and inviting!!! We spent the majority of our time cuddled up by the fireplace in the great room! The entire main floor is open concept and done perfectly. At one point we had 3 gals cooking, 2 reading and 1 crafting...all in that beautiful space!!! We couldn’t have enjoyed our time here more!! They weather even helped out with a nice coating of snow! We voted and can’t wait to try summer in Stowe💙

Exceptional Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Decker's before; and we will do it again. This place has all the comforts of home and more. Each time we have stayed here there has been upgrades to the house which makes it feel like new. This time there is a brand new, beautifully tiled stall shower on the first floor bathroom. This bathroom use to only be a half bath. Since the lower level has a pull out sofa bed for guest to sleep, now whoever sleeps there has his own full bathroom.The next upgrade was removal of carpeting in living room/dining room with addition of a heated floor in the living room beneath tile that looks like real wood. The new area rug and Art looks great too.

We noticed another new upgrade in the house is a gorgeous, bathroom on the second floor w/ granite counter top, two deep sinks plus new cabinets. It looks spectacular!

The views from the house are great. You can see Mt Mansfield from great room. A pond sits right out back which has plenty of wild life to observe. We saw many different kinds of birds eating from the bird feeder, including wild turkeys . Also an otter on the pond!

When we were not outside doing our winter sports, shopping or checking out the area breweries, we watched movies on the big screen in the grand TV room upstairs. Also played music and sat cozy by the wood fire in the living room.

The master suite is a large unit all by itself. We love taking a soak in the oversized Jacuzzi tub. The king size bed is so comfortable. Oh and another upgrade we were pleasantly surprised to find is a new flat screen TV on the bedroom wall!

This condo is clean, well stocked, and a wonderful place for families and friends to reunite.

Thank you to the owners.

Great house and location! We had a wonderful week.

  • 4 of 5

This condo is great for two families. Our group had 4 kids and 4 adults. The main living room/kitchen/dining room was open and a nice place for everyone to hang out. Then there is the basement space where the kids could hang out and an upstairs room with a tv and comfortable furniture. Everything was clean, beds were comfortable and the fireplace was cozy. We would have loved if the tv and the more comfortable furniture from the upstairs den were in the kitchen/dining room/living room area because that really was where everyone gathered most of the time. We did not use the community hot tub. It was far away (definitely needed to use the car to get there) and just wasn't worth the trouble for us. Overall we had a fun, comfortable and enjoyable week in Stowe! Thank you!

Christmas in Stowe!

  • 5 of 5

This home in Stonybrooke was perfect for our Christmas getaway. It was very clean and accommodating. The location is perfect, close to everything you could imagine doing. We love to cook and the beautiful kitchen had all we could ask for and more. The living room , kitchen and dining is one large open space , very beautiful with a large fireplace. The bedrooms are all nice size with, very functional bathrooms. The tv room upstairs and on the lower level are lovely as well, although we didn't even use those rooms because we enjoyed the kitchen/living area so much. No need for tv when you have your family in such a great place!!! Thank you Louise and Happy New Year!!

Car: recommended

In summer there is so much to do - easy to advanced hiking trails to waterfalls or many of the Stowe Land Trust preserved areas. Walk to the Crop or Piecasso restaurant for lunch outside w/local micro breweries nearby - World renowned Heddy Topper brewery will be walking distance when completed in 2015-16. 5 min. to Trapp family Resort w/ beautiful vistas or go kayaking in our nearby waterways. Go golfing or Play tennis (take a lesson) or relax by the pool. Shop in town, visit sculpture gardens/art galleries. Go to Top Notch or Spruce Peak for a massage and relax at their spa - enjoy their views and unique pools winter or summer for the day. Stonybrook has few golf holes for putting or go to one of the area 18 hole golf courses or mini-golf with the family. Movie theater, ice cream stores and super markets nearby. Remember Montreal is 2 hours away and a day trip to Burlington is also a fun outing.
