Awesome location- Ski-in/ Ski-Out to TollHouse Lift, and in summer hike, mountain bike or sit by the pool right from the front door of our stylish and fun townhouse. This location can’t be beat, so close to the best of Stowe's skiing, trails, restaurants, craft breweries, and shopping, in every season. Split level 3 bedroom (each on own floor), 2 full (jetted) bath, with foosball, fireplace, great beds. We love staying in boutique hotels so we decorated our country home to feel like one.
We welcome guests from all cultures and orientations to enjoy our home and the magic of Stowe.
Wood floors throughout with exposed beams, soaring ceilings in the main living spaces and lots of windows make this in ideal space to unwind in nature in a modern, stylish, décor. It's a flexible layout - great for a romantic weekend but also works great for groups of friends and families (check with me if you have kids under 5 before booking, please), because each bedroom is separate and on it's own level. (note: we have enough beds to comfortably sleep 9 but that might feel a bit loud/tight in the open plan living spaces so I list for 8.) Master bedroom has a king memory foam bed and ensuite bathroom with double vessel sinks and jetted tub, rainfall shower. Second master bedroom has a queen memory foam bed and a twin daybed. Right next to it is the second bathroom which has jetted tub, rainfall shower. Lower level has comfortable sleeping for 4 with twin daybeds and trundles, all with memory foam mattresses. (Note: bathroom is up a small flight of stairs). This room also doubles as a family room - a great space for kids to watch movies on the smart tv/blu ray/dvd player and play with (there are some games and puzzles there for you). Memory foam mattresses in all rooms have layers to achieve temperature control, and we use hypoallergenic bedding and pillows. Guests frequently tell me how much they love the beds! Bedrooms have room darkening cordless cellular shades for great sleeping-in.
Kitchen is beautifully appointed for cooks, if you decide to not go to one of the amazing local restaurants nearby. Brand new stainless appliances and microwave, french press for coffee, old-fashioned whistle kettle, and 4 slice toaster, coffee grinder, blender. Farmhouse table in the dine-in kitchen comfortably seats 10. Warm edison bulb lighting in the chandelier makes this a space to spend time together- so much more than just an eating place.
The adjacent open plan living area includes a cozy built-in conversation pit in front of the new gas fireplace. There are plenty of books for you to borrow, comfy seating for 8-10. Flick the switch and a warm fire blazes without the hassle of having to build it or put it out when you leave or go to bed. The 50inch tv with cable as well as a bluray and smart tv, can be easily rolled in front of the fireplace area for cozy movie nights. The second part of the living space has a foosball table and a place to set one of Vermont's amazing craft beers down while you play.
We have a second floor patio - a beautiful spot to look at the trees, read and have a coffee or tea. In the back is our large ground level paved patio with Hammock and charcoal Weber grill (before the snow comes).
A plus is the extra large shed with a lock adjacent to the mudroom to easily park your bikes, or lock up your skis. This second entrance, 'Mudroom', has space to hang your coats, store your ski accessories and your boots- rain or snow.
There is also a fabulous, very large, pool (open mid June to Labor Day) with plenty of lounge chairs, grass to play on, and eating tables in the complex, about 3 minute walk down the driveway.
We love discovering great trails, swimming holes, restaurants and bars, and are happy to offer advice and recommendations. The mudroom door has a keyless lock.
Please ask me for mid week pricing.
Parking is outside and there is a little paved path to front door- about 40 steps.
Note there is no tv in the bedrooms or landline phone.
Located at the base of the Toll Road and Toll House Double ski lift, we have a prime ski in ski out location in the winter. There is also a shuttle stop right at our entrance off rte 108 if you want to ski outside of lift operating hours. In the summer, hike/bike in bike out in on the 50+ miles of single and double track Mountain Biking trails in Stowe, and access to all that the mountain resort and surrounding cross country and mountain bike trails have to offer. We are also .75 miles from the trailhead to famed Bingham Falls/ swimming hole, the Cross Country center and it’s vast hiking/biking trail system, and 1 mile from the trailhead to the Stowe Bike Path. Too many great restaurants, bars, breweries in close proximity to mention here, but I'm happy to offer recommendations!
The Toll House Double* lift is right at the end of the driveway for amazing ski 'n ski out family vacations in the winter, access to all the fun activities in the summer, and at the base to the toll road where you will see the most spectacular foliage views! * check the Stowe Mountain website for Toll House Double lift operations schedule. There are three trails to ski back home when there is enough snow- the beginner Toll Road, The Stowe Derby Trail (which goes almost to our front door) and the steep and more difficult Powerline Trail.
