The house was really nice, good space and lots of beds for the family. Overall pretty clean with some areas that could use attention as mentioned in other reviews. The location can’t be beat for a visit to the slopes and close to town as well.

A couple things that need attention. The lockbox was very difficult to open, at least for me. Two lock boxes, didn’t know which to use, but it didn’t matter because I was unable to open the lower one at all.

Entertainment. Lots of remotes. It would be helpful to have some operating instructions.

Bath towels were on the small side, I know, small gripes.

It snowed pretty hard while we visited. Probably about 8 inches. No snow plow came. Had we not been driving a four wheel drive suv, we probably would have been stuck in the driveway. We made it, but barely. I don’t even think a lower clearance vehicle with four wheel drive would have made it.

The positives definitely outweigh the negatives here. Great property. I’d like to see it in the summer!
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. We are putting signs on the lockbox to help guests know which to use, and we are labeling the remotes as well. We apologize for any unseemly towels you had and will be sure any ripped or stained towels are replaced. The snowplows do come in the morning to this property, but after a big storm, it takes time for them to get to every property in their portfolio. We hope to see you again!

We had a wonderful long weekend at this house and enjoyed Stowe. The house it self needs some work. The shower door in the guest bathroom comes off the tracks. The dishwasher did not clean the dishes so we ended up doing them all by hand. We tried to use the indoor grill but it smoked up so much we had to open the windows. We did not even get to the point of putting food on it! It needs a deep clean. The fire alarms did not go off and this made us a little concerned. FYI: The kitchen stove turns on very easy w/ just leaning on the knobs, seriously dangerous with little kids in the house. The sheets on the master had a rip in them. The extra blankets also had holes. For the money we payed for the weekend, the house was not up to par.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Monica, and we apologize if your experience did not meet your expectations. We are pleased to say the dishwasher and shower door have been fixed, the smoke detectors and stove knobs have been checked, and housekeeping has attended to the indoor grill, sheets, and blankets. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Very much enjoyed our stay! Great for winter but also considering coming back in the summer too.

Great house! Lots of space and plenty of amenities! It was a quick ride to Stowe Ski Resort and even quicker to town with plenty of restaurants and shopping! Highly recommended it! Only issue was the shower water smelled very metallic, probably due to it being well water. Other than that small issue, everything was perfect!

We rented this property six months ago and found that it was in need of a little touch up but it was acceptable. However, this time it was terrible. The linens and towels were clean. But the kitchen is absolutely filthy! There is dirt in some of the drawers, especially in the drawer where silverware is kept. The potholders were so filthy that I wouldn’t even use them. There were dead flies in the tilt out drawers in front of the kitchen sink. We could only get the dishwasher to turn on once during our stay and it did not clean the dishes very well. The drawers and cabinets are so on organized that it’s very difficult to find anything. The overall condition of the house is in decline. As much as we love the area, we will not rent this place again.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jeri. We have scheduled a deep clean and thorough maintenance inspection to take place at this home so it is ready for our incoming guests. We hope you'll return!

Just spent four nights in this lovely, spacious home. Comfy beds, well stocked kitchen for cooking (we cooked 3 out of 4 meals here) and very private surroundings. Close to town for exploring the downtown. Out far enough that your GPS will route you around town to avoid traffic when headed elsewhere. Highly recommend.
Ron B. Oct 2019
The home was very comfortable, clean and easy to find with our navigation system. We enjoyed playing cards at your dining room table. Beds were very comfortable, just wish we had booked for a longer stay.

This property is a perfect place for a getaway. Close to excellent restaurants and downtown Stowe. The grounds are gorgeous with two ponds and beautiful woodlands. We saw wild turkeys each morning and evening. The home is very clean and spacious and the kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need. All bedrooms are on the second floor. The beds were very comfortable. Highly recommended!

Stowe is great and so is this house! Lots to explore on the grounds and the house is well kept and clean.

Beautiful home with a lovely yard, close to Stowe and good restaurants. Recommend.

The land that this house is on was amazing. It was so relaxing and beautiful. There were so many different places to hang out. I will miss it! I would definitely stay here again.

We loved everything about this rental. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed. The property was absolutely stunning. We loved the pond and used the canoe and paddleboard. My favorite was the gazebo by the river. The sound was so peaceful, the lilly pond was stunning also. Can't wait to come back.
Gordon T. May 2019
The house was wonderfully clean and ready for guests. Easy access is always a bonus and this was the case. The kitchen was well equipped and the bedrooms could not have been more comfortable. The most impressive part of the rental is the property with ponds, streams, and woods all around. This may be the best rental for the price in Stowe.

Our family of four had a wonderful stay at the Stowe Sanctuary, while wrapping up our skiing season and Mount Mansfield. Very comfortable house on a beautiful property. Close to both the Mountain Ski Resort and the Village of Stowe, yet peaceful and serene for nature lovers. While having a self prepared dinner (made in a fully equipped kitchen), we were watching deer and wild turkeys passing by. Highly recommend this property for any season and length of stay. We may come back in the summer!

The house is great but the property is what amazed us the most and added so much value to this rental.
William H. Jan 2019
A nice home, especially for cooks and bakers. Built circa 2007, make of solid construction and appropriate amenities. Set between the mountain and town, the property is sprawling, going on for acres. When we got too much snow to ski, we put on our boots and explored.

Incredible home

My family and I loved the home and the property. We travelled with children and it was a great area for them to get out and play in the snow. The only hiccup was we were provided with the wrong code to get in. Thankfully the team was quick to respond. It could have been a bit of a problem as we were travelling with 4 kids. The only other thing is I would suggest you bring some fire wood or burning logs as the fire wood provided was wet and would not burn. Non the less, the home is stunning and well equipped making for a lovely getaway.
