Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Stowe - The Four Seasons

Sleeps 8 - 3 Double Bedrooms plus double sofa bed. 3.5 Baths.

Recently updated including newly fitted and upgraded basement. Upgraded sumptuous bedding in all bedrooms.

Perfect for couples, families, groups of friends,

When i first visited stowe, i felt as if i were in a winter wonderland. It is also amazing at Summer and Fall seasons.

I vowed to go back as many times as possible in the winter without realizing that Stowe is actually an all year round location particularly suited to all sports whether winter sports or hiking, bike riding, walking, tennis, golf etc. Or just relax on the porch, sitting by beautiful Waterbury reservoir or take a trip to the top of Mount Mansfield whether by car or chair lift in the winter. Beautiful views across to Mount Washington and the Canadian border. Go visit Lake Champlain in Burlington in the summer and take a boat across to New York state. You are also near the Canadian border with Montreal being the closest part of Canada to Stowe, about an hour and a half car ride away. I believe you can fly to Montreal as well as Boston, although I have never done so myself.

This house is on the edge of centre to the village of Stowe where you can take a leisurely stroll to enjoy the many features typical of a New England village which is well serviced with beautiful restaurants as well as other facilities along the Mountain Road ( a free shuttle bus is available from the village along the Mountain Road to Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak for skiing if you don't have a car with you). You can also travel easily to other ski resorts from Stowe such as Jay Peak and Smugglers Notch.

My family has a strong association with the Village and to own a piece of it is a dream come true. Everyone who stays wants to come back. The property has 3 bedrooms, one being in the basement which has been finished to a high standard including shower room, utility room and den with seating and flat screen tv, plus a warm room to keep your ski boots toasty. The master bedroom upstairs is en suite with a large dressing room also. The second bedroom is also upstairs and next to the family bathroom.

Stowe is a truly remarkable place, became home to the Trapp family from the Sound of Music, is home to the original Ben and Jerry's nearby and has its own ghost, Emily, after which a covered bridge is named. The ski trails are fantastic and in the summer, are a treat to walk and hike for the amazing views.

The Green Mountain Inn along the road from this property is a quintissential New England inn where the Whip bar and Grill serves some beautiful food or you could just pop along for a cocktail in the bar in the evening while your dinner is cooking in the fully fitted kitchen. You must try the Green Mountain Inn brunch and Bloody Mary's at weekends. If you prefer to cater for yourselves, there are several grocery stores in the village and because its the US, almost every restaurant caters for take out service too. The food/deli store harvest market is a must for take out prepared food and high quality deli ingredients.

The Four Seasons itself has a large walk out porch where you can sit on the comfortable porch furniture during the summer and barbeque or in the winter to just view the snowy surrounds (we use the grill in winter too). The land opposite is a nature reserve and we have seen deer walk across the road in front but beyond that are tennis courts and a newly refurbished ice rink. What more could you want from a property that sleeps 8 for the price of a room in a local hotel, where every need is catered for, even for the reader, my favourite book shop, Bear Pond Books.

If you're looking for a spa with pool and beauty and relaxation treatments, we often use the Topnotch resort along the Mountain Road. There is even an outdoor heated pool with views of Mount Mansfield and fire pits lit around the pool during the evening.

Apres ski is fully catered for in the Village. Go to Sushi Yoshi for free wings with every drink, Doc Ponds within walking distance for a great vibe and food or be a little more discerning by eating in Plate, also within walking distance of the house. I think this might be my favourite restaurant at the moment.

A couple of reviews from this year are as follows:

' secluded in the heart of the village.What a great location! A few short steps away from the village and yet sitting on the deck you feel like you are on the back roads. This unit is very clean and very well appointed.'

'beautiful home. We really enjoyed our extended stay in this home. We rented it for 6 months. The layout of the house is fantastic, especially the large master suite with walk in closet and private bath. What was also great was the location -- easy and quick walk to restaurants and shops in Stowe. House is well appointed and included everything we needed. Thanks!' and my latest reviews from only a few weeks ago says

'“Excellent choice!”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 1 week ago for a stay in December 2014

Very nice, clean, just as in the pictures.

The beds are great, good mattresses, pillows and linens are all new.

Very well located at walking distance to Stowe center and good restaurants.

Owner very helpful

One bathroom for each bedroom is a great advantage.

Nice kitchen very well equipped, everything good quality'

“Beautiful house in the lovely Stowe”

5 of 5 starsReviewed January 19, 2015 NEW

We stayed at the Four Seasons in the week running up to Christmas - it was wonderful. The house is spacious and well furnished. It is in a perfect location for skiing and exploring Vermont. Wonderful property, I hope we get the chance to go again.

I have also just taken a 3 month booking from someone who stayed last year so its a good rental. In fact my friends who came this year said it smells like Maple Syrup indoors! I guess that means its warm and welcoming and they said how surprised they were that it was so comfortable for what is a rental when we don't use it ourselves.

Each time we visit, we make new purchases and this winter we bought some more great quality rugs, added vintage skis and a tennis racket mirror as new additions for decoration.

Enjoy and treat as your home.

Christmas decorations available for anyone renting at that time of the year.

About Susan McNally

This is my second family home. I also live in the UK where I am updating an old 1840s house in a small village in Kent.

Susan McNally purchased this house in 2014

Why Susan McNally chose Stowe Area

I have a huge history with Stowe. My first visit was in 1996 with my husband and 3 small daughters. We continue to visit as a family and have many good memories. I also have family in Canada and New York so an ideal base for visiting those areas too.

What makes this house unique

Twinkly white lights in winter surrounded by snow....a truly magical experience.

Great location and comfortable townhome

  • 5 of 5

The Four Seasons is in a terrific location just two blocks away from Lower Village in Stowe, close to coffee at Black Cap, heavenly granola at Cafe on Main, and great dining at Plate. The beginning of the Stowe Rec Path is a 5 min walk away. The townhouse is well equipped with comfortable furnishings and air conditioning, which mattered in Stowe in August during a heatwave. There's also a private porch with a nice Weber grill. The owner was a pleasure to work with and made things easy for us. The only negatives were a weak air conditioner in one room and maybe a bit more road traffic than we expected but not a big deal for Stowe. Thanks for a terrific stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review . I spent some considerable time getting the basement refurbished and creating some nice areas with new furnishings, bedding, rugs etc etc so Im glad you appreciated it all. So far as the air conditioning unit, thank you for bringing that to my attention. I shall get my handyperson guy to sort it out. Thank you once again.

We Will Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of July in this lovely property. It is well appointed with comfortable furnishings, a Smart TV that functioned well with our Apple TV, all the kitchen equipment/utensils needed to prepare the most lavish meals, a new Weber grill, and lots of extra sheets and towels. The master upstairs has a king bed and an ensuite bath. There is a second bedroom and bath on that floor. In the basement is another bedroom and bath so two couples would have complete privacy staying in the unit. The unit is only two blocks from the quaint village of Stowe's main street with several good restaurants and a killer ice cream shop! Bike storage and ski storage is right out the back door for ease and convenience. The unit has individual AC units in all rooms which we needed for a few hot summer nights. The deck faces east making it the perfect place for morning coffee.

We would highly recommend this property and will choose it again when we are in Stowe.

Owner's Response: I need to add that the third bedroom with bathroom, as Mr Rogers points out, could very easily become separate accommodation for 2 families in the house. However, I would like to amend the fact that the bathroom area attached has a shower, sink and w.c and not a bath. There are 2 baths elsewhere in the house, one being a jacuzzi bath.
