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 and game room.

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.

Charming Stowe

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful condo was perfect for a family winter getaway! It would be a great choice for all seasons. Overlooking a pond, the condo setting is peaceful . The Deckers have thought of everything you need for a comfortable stay! The kitchen is a cooks dream . There are family games to play, and a tv room. The main floor living space has a great fireplace(wood provided). Everything was immaculate. It was a pleasure to arrive with beds made and towels provided. Stonybrook staff does an amazing job clearing the roads and keeping the walkways clear, picking up trash and keeping the wood bin full. The complex is close to the mountain for downhill skiing, boarding , and we took note of the many cross country trails. Mountain Rd (Rte108) has galleries and shops to delight. You won’t be disappointed by Stowe or your rental experience. Looking ahead we would love to return.

Owner's Response: Mary- thank you for your testimonial about our property. Larry and I know how important family vacations are to families these days...they are truly opportunities for lifelong memories for us, but especially, for creating history for our young ones. It makes us feel good to know we are providing a great space and wholesome environment for re- creation and re-connecting.

This was a fabulous property. We had everything we needed and more.Hope to return.

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best properties that we have stayed at. That's saying a lot since we use VBRO for both domestic and international vacations. The Decker's home was more than comfortable and spacious. The entire house was well appointed. The kitchen and master bath were fantastic.Very convenient to Stowe mountain and the village. We had 6 adults staying and could have accommodated several more. I would highly recommend this property to others.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this property - in fact, it exceeded our expectations. The condo was extremely clean, updated, conducive to our extended family being able to hang out together while still large enough to separate when wanting some alone / down time. Location was ideal - close to restaurants and Mount Mansfield / Spruce Peak for skiing. Owners were very easy to deal with and great about leaving detailed instructions for everything you need to know. We come to Stowe every year and would absolutely book here again if it is available. Many thanks to Louise Decker and family for sharing your beautiful home!

Ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, very convenient to Stowe Mountain and well equipped. We could not ask for anything more. This trip was adult and kids and we were happy with the accommodations. The kitchen was super roomy so even when we cooked together or were just grabbing breakfast at the same time before skiing, we all fit comfortably. The kitchen has anything you need to cook and serve nice meals; my son said nicer than home! The complex is quiet. The views over the pond are very nice. The beds are comfortable with lovely linens. The bathrooms are super clean and very nice. We would enjoy coming back to this home any time.

Testimonials such as yours, is the truly the best way for other families to understand the location, layout and space in the property. Thx for taking time to write something up. Hope you come back soon- summer is equally awesome with easy walking or rigorous hiking & biking trails, great restaurants - so much to explore and do.

Great ski weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with friends and family this past weekend. We were 4 couples, a toddler, and an infant, and the space was just perfect for our group. My husband and I stayed in the master with our 7 month old, and one other couple with a toddler were in the lower level. Both kiddos were tucked away enough that naps and bedtime weren't disrupted by adults socializing. The main floor is wide open and perfect for hanging out. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped, with everything we could possibly need and then some. The two bedrooms upstairs were great for two couples, and the upstairs TV room was perfect for Super Bowl watching. We love Stowe and hope to stay here again for our next visit! Thank you, Louise!

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.
