Relax in this 2950 sq ft condo ( sleeps 8-10 ) complete with first floor master suite. There are 2 beautiful, wood burning fireplaces. We fell in love with the Stonybrook Resort because of its proximity to everything in the Stowe area. 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 resort 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 1/2 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.

Louise Decker purchased this condo in 2012
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.
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.
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.
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!!
From the time we walk in, and my daughter stated how beautiful it was, to the time we left this condo it was the BEST!
We stayed at the Decker condo in July and loved the time we spent there. They have a fabulous kitchen which we cooked in several times during our stay. All the bedrooms are a great size and all 9 of us slept very comfortably with two kids in the basement on the pull out couch. The location is great. There were restaurants and markets within 10 minutes driving distance. If there were any issues, they were quickly resolved by the owners and there is also a property manager in the complex. We loved Vermont and would not hesitate to stay here again.
While we skied most of the time our family was in Stowe we were happy to come home to our lovely home away from home! The home is clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped to for a gourmet dinner! We most certainly will contact this owner again the next time we visit Stowe!
We had a fantastic time at this spacious house. The open plan kitchen- eating- living area was ideal for our teenage family. The 2 tv lounges gave everyone somewhere to go when they wanted space and the built-in music system in the kitchen made the evening meals more enjoyable. A great kitchen space with loads of high quality equipment and utensils made food preparation a pleasure. We all enjoyed the whirlpool bath after skiing. The views of the mountain and the lake, plus seeing the wildlife made this a very pleasurable place to spend our vacation. Easy access to the shops in Stowe and the ski slopes. We hope to use this again for our ski holidays. Many thanks.
We feel incredibly grateful that we found this condo for our stay over the Easter Holiday weekend. It surpassed our expectations well beyond what we viewed from just the website photos. Everything was clean and sparkly upon arrival. It was warm and cozy with plenty of space for our group of 4 adults and 4 kids to spread out in. The extra rooms (upstairs den with TV and downstairs space with TV and arcade game) were just perfect hangout spots for the kids and we could all watch a movie together in that comfy upstairs TV room. There isn't a picture of this on the website but there's also a small nice entry area to place all your gear (jackets, boots, etc.) in. We were completely impressed with how well thought out the set up was of the entire interior space with every inch of storage perfectly utilized. The master bath is AMAZING - huge and beautifully appointed. Then, there's that GORGEOUS kitchen which was well stocked and just a joy to wake up to to start your day with making breakfast and to utilize for cooking other meals. The location is perfectly situated between Stowe Village and Stowe Mountain Resort. Your just minutes away from everything (markets, shops, restaurants etc.). If you come to Stowe, you MUST go to Harrison's for dinner (try the muscles app, lobster risotto, steak tips - OMG!). We also really enjoyed Piecasso for a nice Friday night casual meal. Working with Louise was easy and she was very helpful. You really have everything you need available to you to make your stay at this property completely enjoyable. Highly recommend this condo. This was our first visit to Stowe and we just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed it. LOVED IT! We're sooooo looking forward to coming back : )
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.
