Magnificent One Bdrm Apartment on Private Estate- Heart of XCntry/Mtn BikeTrls

This large (2000 sq ft) apartment is part of one of Stowe’s premier private homes, set on a 150 acre estate in the heart of Stowe’s cross country and mountain biking trail system. Approximately 1.25 miles to the Trapp Family Lodge Cross Country Center, You can ski/snowshoe/bike/hike in or out while being in one of the most beautiful and secluded areas in Stowe. The property is surrounded by over 2,000 acres of conservation land. While intensely private, the property is also situated to provide quick access to everything Stowe has to offer.

This bright and airy apartment features its own private entrance and parking area and is perfect for any guests looking for lots of space to spread out comfortably. Spectacular for an individual or couple, the apartment can also easily sleep and accommodate a family of up to 7.

Accommodations:

The massive living area includes a sectional sofa and two queen size futons/couches, among other seating. A large, flat screen Sony TV with DVD player and DirecTV (including the largest channel package available) can be watched from any of the seating areas. A work area with large, flat-screen monitor, printer, and keyboard/mouse is available should you wish to attach your laptop. If you don’t want to bring one, we can arrange for a loaner during your stay. There is an occasional table and chairs for playing board games.

The bedroom is furnished with a king bed with premium linens, sitting area including couch and loveseat, a leather ottoman that opens to twin size bed, TV/DVD/Satellite and a desk/work area. The spectacular, southeast views from the bedroom include the large, heated, stone swimming pool and hot tub, two ponds, the grounds of the estate, and the mountains beyond.

The bathroom is travertine marble with a large, frameless glass, multi-headed shower with luxury fixtures and a separate Jacuzzi tub. Bathroom features include large fog-free mirror, elegant shutters, radiant heat under all surfaces, and a European-style towel warmer.

Stowe has approximately 50 restaurants for you to enjoy, but if you prefer, stay in and cook your own meals in the fully equipped kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances, fine wood cabinets, and granite counter tops. There is a counter with stools for casual eating, and the dining area comfortably seats 8. The kitchen is properly equipped and stocked with basic supplies, such as spices. If you need any other cookware or supplies during your stay, let us know in advance and we can make sure everything is waiting when you arrive (extra charges may apply).

While Stowe has countless activities, we have provided a DVD library, books, puzzles and games for your enjoyment should you prefer to stay in and relax. In addition to the DVD’s provided in the apartment we have a collection of approximately 2000 titles. We can email you a listing, and make sure the titles you want are waiting for you in the apartment.

During the late spring, summer, and early fall, non-exclusive use of the pool, hot tub and ponds are included. The hot tub is big enough for 10 people, and the heated pool (heated memorial day through labor day) is 45 feet long. The two ponds are connected by a dramatic, 15-foot waterfall. The larger of the two is over ½ acre, and has an excellent floating dock system to provide access for swimmers. This pond features several small water craft, including a canoe, 2 kayaks, and a 4-person paddleboat for your enjoyment.

Additional Features:

Each room has easy-to-use, individual temperature controls (including radiant heat in the floors as well as forced-air heating and air conditioning), and one-touch electronically-controlled lighting and electronically controlled window shades for screening and privacy.

The ceilings are 10’ high throughout.

Telephones are provided with unlimited North American calling capability, at no extra cost.

All power is protected by an instant-on generator.

Easy and quick Access to all Stowe has to offer:

Stowe offers the largest cross-country ski trail systems in the Eastern United States, and the estate borders two of the groomed resort systems (Trapp Family Lodge and Topnotch Resort), with connecting trails to other systems as well.

There are three world-class golf courses within 15 minutes of the estate.

The world-famous Stowe Mountain Resort is only 10-15 minutes away. It is, truly, the ski capital of the east - especially after the $350+ million investment in equipment and facilities over the past few years. There is nothing else like it in the Eastern United States.

There are several spa facilities in Stowe, including the world-class Topnotch Resort and Spa and the Stoweflake Resort and Spa.

Tennis courts are available at any time of year, including the world class tennis facilities of Topnotch Resort (ranked among the world’s best Tennis Resorts).

Far exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

It is unlikely anything I could write in a review could possibly come close to what we experienced during our 3 day stay at Tina & John's luxury apartment. This place is fully equipped accross the board and over the top in quality in what is provided within. We've stayed in countless properties and unlike many this property certainly far exceeded our expectations in everyway. They are the perfect host/hostess in that they are responsive and williing to provide you with anything you could possibly ask for during your stay. We will most certainly stay there again while in the area and highly recomend the property to anyone.

Luxury in Stowe.

  • 5 of 5

Wow. Exceeded all expectations. Such a beautiful property with every amenity as described. Tina and John are wonderful hosts and very easy to deal with. The apartment is very private to the main house and offered plenty of space for our family of 6 plus dog. Highly recommend.

Ahhhhh.... maxing!

  • 5 of 5

We simply couldn't say enough wonderful things about our stay at Tina's place in Stowe. This apartment is 10x nicer than any hotel or home away/vrbo lodging we've ever before visited. The space is extremely ample. It was just my husband and myself (and there is only 1 official bedroom) but plenty of extra space in the living room for other guests such as children. Every possible amenity was right in the apartment from quality cookware, a washer and dryer (w/plenty of laundry detergent) to high end appliances and electric blinds! The bathroom is to die for with a 2 person jacuzzi tub and rainfall shower. And then there is the property itself! When we drove up, we turned around because we thought we were in the wrong place! It is just breathtaking! There are ponds with waterfalls, bridge and a dock with kayaks. An in-ground pool w/attached jacuzzi was right outside our door with plenty of lounge chairs and stunning views of the surrounding mountains. Tina and her husband were wonderful hosts. Although the apartment is right off their house they were inviting and helpful but unobtrusive. We loved it so much, we didn't want to leave and they were able to accommodate us another night. Then, they even offered late check out on that day! Tina also informed us of a free outdoor concert that her company was sponsoring at the Trapp Lodge. She even lent us chairs for the event. We were able to bring our own picnic basket w/wine and the venue was amazing. We would have missed out if she hadn't told us. We also loved Stowe itself. So many good restaurants (which I also reviewed on Trip Advisor if interested) and spas! Wow were we pampered! And the icing on the cake was a sweet welcome bottle of wine left on the kitchen counter when we arrived and the fact that my small miniature poodle was welcomed. We couldn't give this any higher reviews. Thank you for allowing us to stay!

What a Gem!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place and location. We have been coming to Stowe for years and love it. We came across this location being close to Trapp Family Lodge where we typically stay. The space is simply amazing. We traveled with our two kids age 10 and 7. Large kitchen with everything you need and family room with two beds for the kiddos. Master is huge and bathroom is top notch. Full access to the heated swimming pool and hot tub, two ponds and beautiful grounds. Really cannot say enough about this place. 5 Star all the way and highly recommend!!!

Beautiful February Getaway in Stowe, VT

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at this beautiful property in Stowe, VT for a weekend of skiing and relaxation; My husband, daughter (8 months) and Yorkshire Terrier dog. The property is a very clean and well appointed one bedroom/one bathroom apartment attached to a gorgeous estate in a perfect location close to town and the mountain. Not to mention the lovely views of the surrounding woods and mountain! Tina, the Owner, was very responsive and accommodating right from the start. Booking was easy and all of our questions about the property were answered without hesitation. The apartment is very private, with it's own entrance and driveway/parking area. Tina had a crib set up for our daughter and even left us a bottle of wine to enjoy during our stay! The apartment had all of the comforts of home and more! From a fully furnished kitchen to a spectacular spa bathroom and large king bedroom suite we enjoyed every minute. We would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a relaxing trip to Stowe and cannot wait to book this property with Tina again!!

Thanksgiving Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days over Thanksgiving in this very comfortable very clean very well-equipped apartment . The setting is gorgeous. I prepared Thanksgiving Dinner with everything I needed in the kitchen. The owners were there if you needed them. The location for us was ideal as we explored the entire area. We would rent this property again!
