We are East Coast city folks who love Vermont and its pristine Green Mountains. When our children were born, we decided to buy that dream vacation home allowing our family to have a wonderful, well-balanced 'double life'. We chose the Waterbury, VT location for its proximity to various ski resorts (Stowe, Sugarbush, Bolden Valley), great recreational and culinary offerings, and easy access to I-89.
VILLA AUSBLICK is very unique rental property that serves the varied needs of many different guests which could be a large, multi-generational family reunion or a group retreat coming together for a vacation, to celebrate the Holidays or a special life milestone (big birthday, engagement, wedding, baby shower, college commencement).
For me personally VILLA AUSBLICK is simply the perfect place to tune out from my busy day-to-day life, reconnect with nature and find my inner peace. Once you arrive, you will understand.
Villa Ausblick offered my family a large property with lots of bedrooms, bathrooms and areas for relaxation and recreation. That was very important to a group of travelers ranging from age 2 to 65. Each individual was able to have a very positive experience. The property description was completely accurate. It was clean and well maintained, enabling us to fully enjoy our stay from the minute we arrived. Sybille Kim left detailed instructions and remained accessible throughout our stay. There was nothing that we needed that was not provided. I would recommend this property to my friends and family and to any others that visit the Stowe/Waterbry area. We spent hours, shopping, dining, hiking, swimming, and immersed ourselves in scenic New England. It was a pleasure
My husband and I and our 3 young kids stayed at Villa Ausblick with my sister and brother-in-law and their kids during peak foliage weekend in Waterbury. The house was better than expected-- the views from the back deck were spectacular! The yard, with tree house and large natural rock formation, provided non-stop-fun for the kids. The house is set back from the road with a long paved driveway, so we never had to worry about the kids on their bikes or scooters.
You can get to downtown Waterbury in less than 10 minutes. We hiked every day (we recommend Mt. Philo for all ages) and did a portion of the Long Trail.
I accidentally left my bag at the house, but the owner went out of her way to find a way to return it me in the Boston area.
We can't wait to go back!
We visited VILLA AUSBLICK with 11 family members and everyone had a great time. We all kept saying how beautiful the views and property were. The property is as pretty as shown in the pictures and everything was in working order. The pool was great and was used every day. We used pretty much every convenience/amenity - great kitchen to cook both breakfasts and dinners, b-b-q, deck for morning coffee, gazebo for evening meals and games, fire pit for late night stargazing, pond was nice to gaze at and look for fish and frogs, downstairs game room and washer/dryer. This property is so private and quiet yet within 15 minutes of a supermarket/gas station with convenience store. We visited the towns of Waterbury, Stowe and Burlington and all were close with good restaurants. The kids hiked Mt. Mansfield and did the ropes course through Arbortrek. We went to Camel's Hump Mountain, did SUP at the Reservoir and biked the Stowe Recreation Trail and would recommend all of these things. We would definitely love to visit Villa Ausblick again sometime and would recommend it to anyone who wants privacy, a beautiful house and a perfect location. This is an overall 5-star rental!!
Recommendations - We were in Waterbury for a hot week and did miss not having any air conditioning - even units in the bedrooms would have been appreciated. Although when we commented to a shopkeeper she told us most homes and shops don't have ac. There should be a tv on the main level - if only to watch the news at night/morning for weather reports. There are only 2 tvs - 1 in the Master upstairs and 1 in the basement game room.
Villa Ausblick couldn't have been a better choice for a summer vacation with friends. Our group consisted of 3 families with kids ranging from 7 months to 5 years old. We were all familiar with the area prior to arriving (which definitely helps), there is an unlimited amount of activities in the area for all ages. We mostly took advantage of Stowe, Waterbury and Burlington. Our major activities included Shelburne Farms, Ben & Jerry's, Stowe bike path, Stowe farmers market, Echo Museum and Waterbury reservoir. All of which did not disappoint. Not to mention some of the worlds best breweries; Alchemist, Hill Farmstead, Foam, etc.
I can't say enough about the house itself. We could have stayed at the house every day and that would have been a great vacation on it's own. The house has plenty of room and all of the normal comforts of home. The kids loved the tree house and pool. It was also nice that they had so many toys already there (inside and out). The play room kept the kids occupied while we were inside. My only negative comment would be that the wifi did not work very well.
The owner was great to work with from booking all the way up to our trip. It is obvious that she truly wants her guests to have a great vacation. Overall I would highly recommend Villa Ausblick!
Villa Ausblick provided the venue for a fantastic family vacation ! We wanted a house set in Vermont with nearby activities for our family to gather together including our grown children and partners with our 4 grandchildren . The home far exceeded our expectations. This is a special place! The property is incredibly well maintained and organized, the view is spectacular, and the owners very accommodating. It was so much fun we definitely will want to return for another memorable experience.
A wonderfully secluded retreat in the most beautiful environment! The home and pool are wonderful! The view is outstanding! I would highly recommend this vacation rental!!
