Stowe cottage description

Fairy Tale Cottage that has been completely renovated with all major appliances,internet, Jacuzzi, Direct TV, gourmet kitchen etc. Surrounded by 12 acres , part of Sterling Forest, yet minutes from the base of Mt. Mansfield and all the restaurants and spas of Stowe. There are two fireplaces, one in the master bedroom and one adjacent to the major sitting room.
A wood-burning stove is essentially a third fireplace serving the the sitting/dining area and kitchen. Gourmet Kitchen with all new appliances equipped to create a gourmet meal or a simple snack. Sterling Brook runs through the property and hiking, cross country skiing and mountain biking trails are right by. Surrounded by magnificent forest yet a short distance to downtown Stowe with all of its great restaurants, spas, shops and some of the best down hill skiing in New England. Every season is magical from the warm summer days with craft festivals, farmers markets and 30 plus miles of hiking and biking trails. Autumn is a blaze of colors that are difficult to imagine until you see it. Winter brings the hush of snow and the thrills of skiing. Spring brings the flowers bursting out of the snow and the deep greens of the trees that you forgot about in the winter. This is truly a 4 season home.

                          Why the Owner Chose Stowe:
                          This is our dream house with everything we ever wanted in a Vermont property. Deep in the forest with all the quiet and wild life and yet close enough to all shopping, skiing and night life that we do not have to travel far if we want it. The property is magical with a Stone House, fireplaces and beautiful forest views from every window. There is also the wonderful Sterling Brook that runs through the property as well as cross country skiing trails, hiking and mountain biking trails and access to amazing wild life.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Tranquil peaceful beautiful surroundings but a house that has everything you need for surround comfort. Wood stove, fireplaces, Jacuzzi, gourmet kitchen, wine refrigerator and all that you need to be content at home yet night life and restaurants as well as down hill skiing and other year round activities near by. The best of both worlds.
