COMMENT FROM VISITOR: Deer Hollow really did give us the best of everything. Close to Stowe town but also far enough away to feel isolated, a beautiful log fire on wintry nights and in general a place of calm escape. I'll never forget sitting by the fire reading Robert Frost at night, then walking out the next morning through the landscape of his poetry - perfect fields of snow, still roads overhung with branches and an incredible light on the horizon between the distant trees.
ANOTHER COMMENT: We usually try to go somewhere completely different every time for our vacations, but we both agreed we'd be tempted to come back. We've never rented a house that was so spotless or so well equipped, either. Thanks!
aND ANOTHER: Deer Hollow is spacious and very clean, a house with a personality and at the same time easy to feel at home in and we would like to thank Susan for her hospitality + we did see a DEER!
When I speak with anyone who inquires about DEER HOLLOW AT STOWE, I tell them about the efforts continually made to provide an extra-clean environment, and an especially comfortable vacation experience. As a recent guest from the UK reported, "Everything was as Susan described, and spanking clean." **The professional team from Picture Perfect Cleaning agrees, Deer Hollow is the most pristine house they clean! **

Dear Susan, We had a wonderful vacation. We enjoyed all the comforts and conveniences of your awesome vacation home and neighborhood!….Your kitchen was fabulous to cook in—as we ate all our meals in (or on the porch ;-)
We hope we can stay here again in the future. Thanks again.
Susan's cottage is well situated, just a few of miles out of Stowe, both for the peace of the mountains and for the high-life. Stowe proved a lively place even in the 'low' summer season. There's a vast choice of places to eat and drink there, although with such a high-spec kitchen we often ate in - and one evening even entertained friends and family. The place is wonderfully spacious. Everything was as Susan described, and spanking clean. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed breakfast and after-dinner drinks on the porch, entertained by butterflies, birds and dragonflies. Our young American nephews insisted we visit Ben and Jerry's icecream factory and the Magic Hat brewery - free samples included! And we particularly enjoyed a visit to Montpelier. We would definitely recommend 'Deer Hollow' in the summer months to other non-skiers like ourselves.
We stayed a week in July 2016 in this well-appointed, well-maintained and very clean home. The home is nestled in the hills northwest of Stowe, about a 10-minute drive from downtown. The location is quiet with little road traffic, and the name of the locale (Deer Hollow) is appropriate--we saw several deer in the area.
The home's owner personally gave us a tour of the property upon our arrival. The home is kept impeccably clean and tidy, and everything we used was in good order. The owner was also easy to reach while we made our arrangements to visit and when we had questions.
Some of the days we visited were very warm, in excess of 30 C/85 F, but the home stayed comfortable. The window locations allowed us to get good cross-breezes into the house.
Despite its location, the property receives decent mobile service, even for our major carrier which has a reputation of weaker service coverage than other carriers in Vermont.
We would definitely visit again.
We stayed at Susan's in the summer of 2014, with 4 adults, and 3 children (incl. a 9 monthes old one).
The house is very well situated close to Stowe town center. It is well taking care off, and absolutely immaculate. I particularly liked that the kitchen is well apppointed, which was great for us since we enjoy home cooked meals! The yard was also great to let the kids run and play and we enjoyed it very much.
On the down side, there is no railing on one side of the stair case. This is not a big issue, but famillies with small children should be aware. Lastly, we have been renting houses through Home away from home many times, and I felt that the reservation/ house takeover process could have been easier.
This being said, we had a great time and would recommend this property for others visiting Stowe.
We got to deer hollow because our other rental did not work out. susan, the owner was great ! She got us into deer hollow on short notice! The property is on a very accessible road but far from any hustle and bustle....we woke up to a beautiful setting but not too far from the stowe mountain road. I would highly recommend staying at deer hollow.
Great little country house! Very clean and comfortable.
Deer Hollow is well described in the literature and provided perfect accommodation for us grand-parents travelling from the UK to spend time with son, wife and 2 grand-children (9 and 7) who had travelled to Vermont from California. We wanted a peaceful location but one where we could go out and visit interesting places in the area.
The owner was there to meet and greet us and show us the amenities. We were reassured by this in that it showed the level of care that she has for her house which was well appointed and beautifully clean.
We enjoyed renting bikes, visiting Cold Hollow Cider Mill, Morse Maple Syrup Farm, boating/kayaking on Westbury Reservoir, visiting Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream factory. We didn't eat out much, preferring to snack while out and then have a meal together when returning to base.
The whole holiday was very special with only a couple of hiccups:
1) It was promised that the grass would be cut but it wasn't during our week's visit and this curtailed outdoor games etc. with our grand-children. Disappointing
2) Both the payment of the rental fee and re-payment of the security deposit were very costly in bank charges when paying and receiving to/from the UK and took the edge off what otherwise was a brilliant holiday. Perhaps if we could have had the facility to pay by credit card this hassle and extra cost may have been avoided or lessened.
I would recommend this property for a peaceful outdoorsy holiday for people who like countryside and fresh air (which we do).
Enjoy cross-country skiing just down the road, or hike/bicycle to Sterling Valley Gorge. Scenic drives, spectacular Fall Foliage. Downhill skiing, snowboarding, snow shoeing, dog sledding, horse-drawn sledding & horseback riding. Golf (18 hole or mini-golf), canoe, kayak. Fish, swim, sail, scuba in lakes, rivers and pools (majestic Lake Champlain). Mountain Gondola & Mount Mansfield hiking/skiing (highest peak in Vt). Public: ice-skating rink, indoor pool and gym, tennis courts. Public-access full-service health/sport club facilities and yoga classes. Boutique shopping and Stowe Farmer's Market. Varied restaurant options or home food delivery. Art museum, ski museum, theater, films. Stowe Festivals (sum/fall) = music, garden, food and wine, crafts, balloon, automobile and antiques. Stowe has it all...almost endless entertainment & dining options, plus the rural tranquility of Northern Vt. and proximity to picturesque Lake Champlain -- and Montreal, Canada's cosmopolitan showplace.
Other Activities: Canoe or kayak trips, ice skating, dog sledding, snowboarding, snowshoeing, many summer and fall festivals, horseback riding plus spectacular Fall Foliage...and Much More.
Golf: 18-Hole championship course open to the public with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and Mt. Mansfield, the highest peak in Vermont.
Ski: Mt. Mansfield is the highest peak in Vermont and home to excellent east-coast skiing. Natural and man-made snow provide a long season for great skiing experiences. Trail-side amenities available include internet access, Gondola and mountain-top dining.
