Relax in this 2950 sq ft condo ( sleeps 8-10 ) complete with first floor master suite. There are 2 beautiful, fireplaces. The living room has one wood burning and the master bedroom is gas. We fell in love with the Stonybrook Resort because of its proximity to everything in the Stowe area. Spruce Peak and Mt. Mansfield are approx 10 minutes from Stonybrook as we are about half way up the mountain Rd. At the end of our dead end street is a swimming pool and tennis courts for summer enjoyment. In winter, we go hiking & snowshoeing or X-C Skiing on the trails surrounding our property as the community maintains them year round. The management here is truly remarkable - they plow, cut the grass, salt the walkways provide firewood, etc. Our photos tell the story in terms of comfort & style - we decorated it in neutral forest tones with a 'Pottery barn' feel in the bedrooms. First floor has a front deck entrance leading into a spacious mud room. In December 2013, we built a new, top of the line cook's kitchen complete with granite counter tops and all new appliances including a commercial 6 burner stove. Our kitchen opens into the living room with plenty of counter space, 4-counter stools and wine refrigerator. We have a farm table in dining room that expands to seat 10, vaulted living room and 3 season porch overlooking a beautiful large pond, modern full bath plus a separate, first floor, master bedroom suite with beautiful bathroom boasting radiant heat, 2 sinks, whirlpool & separate glass enclosed tiled shower. Master bedroom also has a beautiful stone, wood-burning fireplace, private deck, double closets and plenty of drawer storage. Second floor has 2 additional bedrooms ( one with queen bed/pvt deck w mountain views and the second bedroom has 1-queen bed and 2-twin beds plus large closet, skylight and extra storage. These 2 bedrooms share the over sized, jack & Jill bath. Lastly, there is a very large great room w skylights and large windows with great views of the mountain tops. This is our primary TV room and office. In 2013, we added a lower level that is perfect for a recreation room - there's a flat screen TV, arcade game and a pull out couch. We also built a laundry room and added a new front loading washer and dryer. In 2016, we upgraded the first floor by adding a seemless glass and tile shower, replaced the rugs with awesome tile that everyone thinks is wood! We are always making improvements to suit our lifestyle and take pride in providing a quality vacation experience to our renters. We also updated the 2nd floor bath with new tile floor, and cabinets w/granite countertops.

Why Louise Decker chose Stowe
Louise worked for the Stowe area Assn in the winter of 1978 and always loved being in Stowe. Over 30 years ago we began coming to Stowe for Ski vacations and always dreamed of owning a second home in this location. We looked at many single homes and condominiums and chose Stonybrook because of its unique location and benefits.
What makes this Condo unique
We chose the Stonybrook resort because of it location, halfway between Mt. Mansfield and the charming town center. Additionally, we are steps from the 5 mile town recreation path that connects the two where we walk and bike in the summer and Cross-Country Ski in the winter. We are walking distance to popular restaurants. As if this is not enough...the resort contains multiple tennis courts, swimming pools and a club house with fitness room and game room.

This beautiful condo was perfect for a family winter getaway! It would be a great choice for all seasons. Overlooking a pond, the condo setting is peaceful . The Deckers have thought of everything you need for a comfortable stay! The kitchen is a cooks dream . There are family games to play, and a tv room. The main floor living space has a great fireplace(wood provided). Everything was immaculate. It was a pleasure to arrive with beds made and towels provided. Stonybrook staff does an amazing job clearing the roads and keeping the walkways clear, picking up trash and keeping the wood bin full. The complex is close to the mountain for downhill skiing, boarding , and we took note of the many cross country trails. Mountain Rd (Rte108) has galleries and shops to delight. You won’t be disappointed by Stowe or your rental experience. Looking ahead we would love to return.
Mary- thank you for your testimonial about our property. Larry and I know how important family vacations are to families these days...they are truly opportunities for lifelong memories for us, but especially, for creating history for our young ones. It makes us feel good to know we are providing a great space and wholesome environment for re- creation and re-connecting.
So many wonderful memories made during our summer stay. The Condo was superbly maintained, spacious, and felt like home. You recognize right away that a lot of thought and care went into this dwelling. We had a group of 6 adults and one child and had plenty of space. All the rooms were beautifully furnished and comfortable. The open floor plan of the kitchen, dining and living room, gave us ample opportunity to relax and enjoy each other's company during our down time. The kitchen is a cook's dream come true. There is no need to bring any cooking tools or accessories, it is well stocked. The location is convenient to the bike trail, shopping establishments, and a variety of restaurants. There are also numerous hiking trails of all levels in close proximity. The scenery surrounding the area is breathtaking. Louise Decker was charming and easy to communicate with. Any question or concern were answered in a timely manner. We enjoyed our stay immensely, and can not wait to get back there.
Thank you Deckers for sharing your home with us!
Beautiful, spacious delightful!
This is a very spacious condo right on the duck pond. It has a very large open plan with family room, dining, and kitchen for large groups to enjoy. The screened porch is right off the dining and is ideal for relaxing with coffee in the morning or drinks in the evening. Every room has a ceiling fan and there is also central air. The kitchen has everything you need. The master bed/bath downstairs is like its own apartment. You are also right next to the second pool and tennis court. We love this place-- our second time staying in it. We also find the beds to be super comfortable.
Perfect condo for a family getaway
This is a long overdue review. We stayed in Louise's condo over New Years and it was perfect for our group which included a mix of adults and little ones. The upgrades in the unit are fantastic and the condo has everything you need for a family vacation. Plenty of room for everyone and if you like to cook... a fantastic kitchen.
Stonybrook is the perfect location between Mansfield and town making it easy to get up to the mountain or to any of the restaurants on Mountain road/in-town. Louise was great to work with and the arrival/departure instructions were super easy.
Will definitely look to stay here again!
Beautiful home in Stowe
Thank you for a wonderful stay. Loved the kitchen 😊
Great Place for Skiing at Stowe
We really enjoyed our few days here. We hit the slopes, visited Von Trapp Lodge, played monopoly and cards, and sat around watching the birds through the huge glass doors. The rental was clean and well stocked. The kitchen was fantastic for cooking!
In summer there is so much to do - easy to advanced hiking trails to waterfalls or many of the Stowe Land Trust preserved areas. Walk to the Crop or Piecasso restaurant for lunch outside w/local micro breweries nearby - World renowned Heddy Topper brewery will be walking distance when completed in 2015-16. 5 min. to Trapp family Resort w/ beautiful vistas or go kayaking in our nearby waterways. Go golfing or Play tennis (take a lesson) or relax by the pool. Shop in town, visit sculpture gardens/art galleries. Go to Top Notch or Spruce Peak for a massage and relax at their spa - enjoy their views and unique pools winter or summer for the day. Stonybrook has few golf holes for putting or go to one of the area 18 hole golf courses or mini-golf with the family. Movie theater, ice cream stores and super markets nearby. Remember Montreal is 2 hours away and a day trip to Burlington is also a fun outing.
