Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Come enjoy a stay in our light-filled Stowe home away from home. Our three bedroom/2 bath condo with two decks (one covered, one open) is ideally located just off the Mountain Road between the mountain and the village. From our condo, you can walk to some of Stowe's best restaurants, the award-winning recreation path, a top-rated spa, specialty shops, and the fun Stowe Market.

There's so much to do outdoors in Stowe -- downhill, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling, mountain and road biking, hiking, canoeing and stand-up paddle boarding, golf and Frisbee golf, zip lining, exploring waterfalls and swimming holes, and a lot more -- but you can be perfectly content just relaxing in Skyview. In warmer wether, a good book, a good drink, pretty flowers on the deck, a big Stowe sky, and genuine Lafuma lounge chairs might make you forget some of those active plans you had. In the winter, a cozy couch and a light-filled living room will have the same pull.

After you have a great day outdoors you want to come back to a place where you can relax, be comfortable, and enjoy being indoors. As soon as you open the door of Skyview you'll know you made the right choice. Just like Stowe, there's something right about this place. It's comfortable with a touch of elegance. All the basics are here (quality beds and comforters) plus lots of extra touches to make it special (i.e., custom made drapery, our own highspeed WiFi, Cuisinart Blender/Food processor, Fujitsu Air Conditioner, Speakman Luxury Showerhead, mobile device charging lamps, and more).

NEW in SKYVIEW:

* wide-slat cherry wood floor and rugs in the living room/dining room - it's really warm and beautiful

* Queen-sized Serta IComfort Memory Foam mattress and box spring for the master bedroom. It makes a difference. You're gong to sleep really well.

* Whirlpool stainless steel refrigerator

* Super quiet dishwasher

* Pasta pot/vegetable steamer - it makes pasta night easy.

The fully-equipped kitchen has new appliances and dimming halogen counter lights. Use the slow cooker to prepare a no fuss tasty hot meal.

Enjoy your meals around a beautiful wood table with rattan chairs graced by original lithographs. Set the lighting you want with the dimmer switch or candlelight.

The soapstone fireplace in the living room provides warmth and a beautiful glow. The sofa, love seat, chair, and oversized ottoman make it a great place to sit, watch movies or sports with the home theater surround sound, listen to music, read, talk, play board games, or simply watch the snow fall. (We have movies, board games, cards, poker chips, and books.)

What are the sleeping arrangements?

The master bedroom has a queen bed, private full bathroom and a 32 inch flat screen TV with a blu-ray DVD player. The front room has a double exposure (view of the mountains) and a queen bed. The middle room has two single beds. There's a full bathroom in the hallway for these two rooms. If you need more sleeping space, the couch has a pull-out queen bed.

How far are you from Stowe? The slopes? The village?

Skyview's is ideally located in Stowe. Get to the village in 5 minutes and the slopes in 9 minutes (literally) and yet still be off the road, nestled in a mountain, in a peaceful, private setting. Walk down the hill for some tasty chicken wings and a beer at the Sunset Grille or to Piecasso, Stowe's most popular restaurant, or stop in to The Alchemist for some Heady Topper. Want some deli or pastries? Go out the back of the resort and find Edelweiss Deli and Bakery across the road. All the restaurants ( 50), shops( 75), galleries, and attractions are nearby. You could walk to a golf course or drive less than 10 minutes to two other courses. Go for a bike ride and it's immediately one of the most beautiful rides you've ever been on.

Walk down the hill for the free trolley that runs between the village and the ski slope. The mountain has the best snow-making capacity on the East Coast. If it's cold there's skiing. There's also a beautiful new skating rink. If it's warm there's zip-lining and hiking.

Skyview: location, privacy, calm, and comfort in a deluxe decor with an eye to the details that make a place special.

What do people say about Skyview?

***Your place rocks! It was a pleasure staying here.

Jean Bae and friends

***We are so relaxed and have enjoyed our visit. Your condo is a great place for a family reunion and Stowe is a great village. Thanks for the cozy atmosphere.

The Cottrells

***The past few days have been great! Relaxing in the evening, cooking great meals and tons of outstanding skiing during the day! The only wish is that we could stay a little longer - next year, when I'm making arrangements, remind me! What sounds logical in October isn't always the way you feel in December the morning you are packing up! You have a lovely home - thanks for sharing! Fondly - The Tompkins Family

***You thought of every detail to create the ultimate mountain retreat. I love it! The video selection was a big hit with the boys, and the pool of course. I recommend the Jacuzzi and sauna after a long hike. We hiked to Smugglers Notch: gorgeous vistas! We'll be back!

Sophie K

***Thank you for making our stay in Stowe so comfortable. The children were delighted with all the swimming, tennis and great hikes. . . . wonderful week. One of our highlights was swimming in the river nearby. It brought back many a fond memory of my youth in British Columbia.

Charlotte Rochana & Family

***Thanks so much for providing our family with such comfortable, beautiful home for our week here in Stowe. Your attention to detail in decorating and including all the high-tech and gourmet appliances and fabulous electronics really enhanced the time we spent inside the apartment. We especially enjoyed the Lafuma lounge chairs and spent much of our time out on the balcony.

While here, we hiked, did the Alpine Slide, Cabot Cheese factory tour, Ben & Jerry's, mini-golfing, loads of swimming, swimming in the rivers while on the path, horseback riding at Topnotch, tennis, farmer's market and shopping. What a full week!

Thanks again for making such a spectacular place for us to call home - we loved it!

The Kraus Family

Elkins Park, PA/New York, NY

P.S. We really appreciated the Pur water filter and the recycling.

***Thank you for starting our love affair with Stowe. It is beautiful here . . . so many great hiking trails - the views at the destinations are unmatched. It's so much fun going to all the shops and trying out the different foods and wines. We appreciate all your personal touches like the candles, the lounge chairs, and large video collection. Our only regret is that there are so many more things that we wanted to do.

The Ng Family

***Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! We spent Christmas here in Stowe and we couldn't have picked a more wonderful and whimsical spot. We truly loved our stay here. We spent the week skiing, shopping historic Stowe, sampling great restaurants, watching movies, walking on the rec path, sitting in the hot tub and bonding with family.

About The Owner

I was born and raised in New York City, my wife was born and raised in Paris, Bourgogne,and Geneva. I grew up loving the beach and she grew up loving the mountains. We both love the outdoors, sports, art, culture, movies, and beauty.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

Why The Owner chose Stowe

A friend gave us her timeshare week and we looked for a summer vacation somewhere with a beautiful natural setting as an antidote for our family to life in NYC. We wound up in Stowe without knowing anything about it and loved it so much that we wound up buying the Christmas break timeshare week to go skiing. For the next nine years we enjoyed one week of skiing (both downhill and cross-country) in the winter wonderland that is Stowe. After nine years, we returned for a summer vacation and were reminded how absolutely gorgeous it is in the summer. While I went to ask for directions to a lake, my wife went into a real estate office. We purchased the condo and without hesitation we can now tell you it is a beautiful place in all seasons. It is truly one of the special places in the world.

What makes this condo unique

A beautiful place, with invigorating mountain air, and lots to see and do. Totally relaxing. It's country living but completely friendly to city dwellers who might want a choice of restaurants, shops, galleries, or access to a library. We love to hike in the mountains, go on long bike rides, walk on the Quiet Path, go to the Farmer's Market, take a dip in the swimming holes, see movies at the movie theater, enjoy the winter on downhill or cross-country skis, take walks with the dogs (they stay in a kennel, sorry no pets allowed), explore the Northeast Kingdom, do a little shopping, have meals on the deck, read, relax, get in touch with nature and ourselves. After more than a decade of going to Stowe, we love knowing that there are always new things to discover. Other than hitting off the driving range, golf hasn't been our thing, but it's easy to appreciate the beautiful surroundings for a round of golf at one of the 3 golf courses in Stowe.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay at Skyview as a cozy place to rendezvous with our adult children and their counterparts while we all enjoyed cross country skiing. It is in a convenient location, nice and clean, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked with what we needed to prepare and serve meals, complete with dishwasher. The parking lot was ample and well plowed. We were busy and did not have time to use the pool and other facilities, but it was nice to have them available to us. We did get to watch some of the winter Olympics on the big TV in the evening while enjoying the warmth of the stove. Very comfortable.

Property was very neat and clean.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view from the balconies. Everything such as shops, restaurants and antiques were only a short ride away. Great place to hike or sit back and enjoy the scenery. Would recommend this for a weekend or a great week away!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Your sentence, "Great place to hike or sit back and enjoy the scenery" captures how we feel about Skyview. It's great to be minutes from dining, shopping, hiking, biking, paddling, skiing, and skating and it's also great to just sit back, take it easy and enjoy the calm of the condo and the beauty of the Green Mountain State.

Great place and location!

I would recommend staying here. The whole process was very easy, checking in and out, no problems. The location was awesome, right near everything we wanted to explore.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. We love that when you're at the condo you can get in the car and in five minutes get lost on some back country roads, or be on Main Street, or start a hike, or be at the ski center. Or leave the car and walk across the road for one of the few late night restaurants in Stowe for some chicken wings/burgers/beers, or to the convenience/deli/bakery to pick up some milk/eggs/pastries, or walk to the Sunday farmers market. (We also love being able to leave for the movie theater a few minutes before the movie starts. A real treat for these city folks.)

Convenient location to everywhere.

  • 5 of 5

This unit is centrally located to everything in Stowe. You can be on I-89 in minutes. The unit itself is quite roomy and contains everything you could possibly want. I couldn't recommend it any higher.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. John. We we're just in Stowe and thinking how great the location is as we rolled down the hill. crossed the road and went to the first Stowe Jazz Festival at The Alchemist. It was fantastic. The Ed Cherry Trio played some absolutely thrilling, world class music. In Stowe. Across the road from our condo. That capped a great day in Stowe - brunch on the deck, a short but beautiful ride to Sterling Forest for a nice long, easy hike, a tasty peach at a farm stand, groceries at Shaw's, a nice dinner in the condo, and jazz. That's why we love Stowe

Wonderful condo with ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I visited Stowe for a relaxing, fun birthday weekend. We were definitely not disappointed! The condo was the perfect size for us and has an amazing deck that we fully utilized throughout our trip. The apartment was clean and the amenities were all updated.

What we really loved about this condo was the stunning view of the mountains from the front porch and side deck, as well as its close proximity to all of the key attractions in Stowe. We were a short walk/bike/car ride from all of the restaurants, breweries, hiking trails and shops that we wanted to visit.

This was our first trip to Stowe but will definitely not be our last! I hope to stay at Abraham's condo in the future (maybe to see Stowe in the winter?)

Owner's Response: Thank you, MaryGrace, for the lovely review. Veronique and I are so happy you and your group enjoyed the condo. What you wrote expresses so clearly how we feel about Skyview. I would add one more thing - the mountain air. We didn't identify it after the first few visits. We just knew we felt good in Stowe. Yes, a nice condo, an ideal location, and a beautiful place count, but so does that clean, fresh mountain air. And of course, the best element of all, was that you got to enjoy it with friends. Do come back. You have to experience Stowe when it becomes a winter wonderland.

Perfect place to stay for our group

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for hosting us! We had a great time at your condo. The location was great and there was plenty of space for 7 of us. We stayed here for my son's graduation from Norwich, and it was an easy drive there, but close enough to Burlington (and of course Stowe) for a night out. Condo was well-stocked with everything we could need, even a good selection of movies. Highly recommend this space for anyone looking to stay in Stowe!
