You'll find endless sources of entertainment at this three-bedroom Stowe retreat, a comfortable mountain escape with a spacious deck, sauna, and its very own indoor racquetball/basketball court - all just a short drive from Vermont's most famous ski slopes.
This two-level home sits on a gently sloping property, surrounded by lush Vermont woodlands that offer beautiful forest views. You'll be just five miles north of the shops and restaurants in central Stowe, 11 miles east of skiing, golfing, and other outdoor recreation at Stowe Mountain Resort, and 42 miles east of downtown Burlington.
Your vacation begins in the open, light-filled living space, where you'll find lofty ceilings, hardwood floors, and two sets of sliding glass doors that let in the sunshine. Kick off your snow boots by the door, warm your toes in front of the wood-burning stove, and curl up on the sectional sofa to read a novel, browse the WiFi, or watch a cable show on the 55-inch flatscreen TV.
Toss your wet socks in the washer/dryer and move into the kitchen to get a head start on dinner. You'll have beautiful wooden cabinets for storing your ingredients, plenty of prep space on the granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances that include a gas stove and a dishwasher. Sit down for a casual bite at the three-person breakfast bar, or gather for a family meal in the dining space for five.
Spend summer days outside on the wrap-around deck, soaking in the sunshine and flipping burgers and hot dogs on the charcoal grill. You can sit outside under the stars, or retreat indoors to enjoy a bit more warmth in the private sauna.
No matter the season, the sports lovers in your family will delight in the indoor racquetball/basketball court, which is connected to the main house by an underground tunnel. Play a few games of one-on-one, take part in a high-stakes Ping-Pong tournament, and end the evening by choosing a DVD favorite to watch as a family in the living room.
With three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, the Sterling Valley Home will accommodate six guests. You'll find one bedroom with a queen-size bed on the lower level, and two bedrooms with a double bed apiece on the upper level. There is one full bathroom on each of the two floors.
Known and beloved as the "Ski Capital of the East," Stowe is the perfect blend of New England charm and thrilling outdoor recreation. In the winter months, skiers and snowboarders can experience 314 inches of annual snowfall, 12 lifts, 485 skiable acres, and 116 trails that cater to beginners (16 percent), intermediate skiers (55 percent), and experts (29 percent) at Stowe Mountain Resort.
Come summertime, golfers can tee off at the Stowe Mountain Club Golf Course at the foot of Mt. Mansfield or the Stowe Country Club in the village of Stowe. Ambitious hikers can ascend the 4,395-foot summit of Mt. Mansfield, and autumn leaf-peepers can view spectacular vistas on the surrounding country roads.
