Property description

Overview: welcome to Thornapple Cottage, an authentic log cabin on 5 quiet acres in Stowe, Vermont. Enjoy a soak in the outdoor, year-round hot tub, or sit by the fire after a day of hiking, skiing, or shopping. 2 bedrooms (1 king bed, 2 twins), perfect for a honeymoon or a family of four. Comfortably furnished and whistle-clean.

Specifics: this comfortably furnished log cabin is nestled privately on five and a half acres with a new, four-person outdoor year-round hot tub, The location is a tenth of a mile up a scenic gravel road, yet only minutes from dining and shopping, as well as world-class skiing at Stowe Mountain Resort or cross-country skiing at famous Trapp Family Lodge.

The cabin is tucked away in a little dell at the edge of the woods where you can relax, slow down and unwind, or -- if you prefer -- keep in touch with wireless broadband and satellite TV. Comfortably furnished, the cabin has a full kitchen with lots of counter and cupboard space, a king-sized bed in one bedroom, and two twins in the other, washer/dryer, and A/C


The cottage and surrounding land: This log cabin cottage is situated on five and a half acres of pastoral privacy with mountain views. Sip coffee in your skivvies on the porch and watch wildlife in the meadow below; or enjoy the outdoor hot tub in privacy. Take nature walks from your front door, then come home to nestle in front of a fire in the field stone fireplace.

Things to do in Stowe: The cottage is a just a mile and a half from the center of Stowe Village and its many shops, restaurants, and galleries. Stowe is famous for its alpine and cross country skiing, and its many activities -- winter and summer -- and of course our spectacularly vivid fall foliage. Come in January and have fun at our annual winter carnival; come in summer and enjoy outdoor concerts at Trapp Family Lodge; come in mid-October and take in a huge, juried craft show; come during spring time off-season (April - end of June) and enjoy not only exceptionally reasonable rates, but the beauty of a lush, Vermont spring in full bloom, including our annual flower festival; come in late fall for a quiet, romantic get-away.

Sports enthusiast?: If dining, shopping, and luxuriating at Stowe's exceptional spas seems too tame, check out the skiing at Stowe Mountain Resort, or go cross country skiing or snow shoeing at Trapp Family Lodge or any of the other three area touring centers. Take a snowmobile tour, or go sledding. Maybe take a hike on many miles of scenic trails and bring your dog! Maybe golf is your thing? Stowe offers four excellent golf courses within ten miles. Or perhaps you'd like to go horseback riding, or mountain biking? The opportunities for outdoor recreation are endless.

Cell phone coverage is good. The house also comes equipped with dishes, cooking pans, linens, towels, paper products such as toilet paper and paper towels, hand soap, dish detergent, laundry soap, and basic spices.

There are outdoor garbage and recycle bins, which we will empty at the end of the rental. We will ensure that the path from the drive to the house is shoveled upon your arrival, and after any major storms, but should we get just a dusting to a couple of inches, you'll need to shovel the walkway if you desire. A snow shovel is on the porch. There's a sledding hill on the premises, but you'll need to provide your own sled(s)....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: My husband and I spent our childhoods in Stowe, and after leaving for school(s) and subsequent travel, we each decided to return, where we 're-met,' married, and have happily raised our children.

Why the Owner Chose Stowe:
This was where we raised our two young children and only left because we purchased a nearby farm to begin our veterinary practice; but we couldn't bear to sell the cabin -- which is why we now rent it.
