Stowe house description

Located in the heart of one of New England's most vibrant villages, the Maple Street Dairy exudes country charm while offering travelers a Vermont take on Alpine chic. Come be among the first to see what we've done to this amazing property, which has been completely updated for the 2012-2013 ski season.

This well-preserved 1830's farmhouse, with wide plank flooring and beautiful winding staircase, is part of a compound which was the Maple Street Dairy, the first dairy in Stowe. It is within easy walking distance of numerous shops, restaurants, and recreational amenities. World class downhill skiing at Stowe Mountain Resort is just a 12 minute drive away, or if you don't want to drive to the slopes, you can hop on the ski shuttle which stops just down the street.

With three bedrooms and two full baths, the home comfortably sleeps 6 in the upstairs bedrooms. If you need more heads in beds, one adult or two children can sleep on the full-size fold-out couch in the living room downstairs. Two separate living and dining areas provide a spacious environment for apre-ski lounging for adults and kids. HDTV, DVD player, wireless internet access, and plenty of board games and puzzles are provided to keep you connected and entertained.

The property owners, who live on site behind the farmhouse in the renovated barn, are dog lovers and know many guests don't want to have to leave their dog behind when they go on vacation. One well-behaved dog is permitted and more are negotiable. Stowe's famed recreation path and off-leash Quiet Path are both great places to walk or ski with your dog nearby.

Come enjoy village life in Stowe!

                                  Year Purchased: 2001

                                  About the owner: The property owners are Karen and Dan Akins, who live on the compound behind the original farmhouse in the renovated barn. They moved to Vermont in 2002 from Austin, Texas via London, England to raise their kids in a wholesome, small town environment that offered winter sports. Both are outdoor enthusiasts and enjoy skiing, snowmobiling, tennis, and hockey. They are now empty nesters and devote much of their time to hiking with their 10 year-old goldendoodle, Sunny. Dan is from St. Paul, Minnesota and Karen is from Oklahoma and Texas. They met while studying at the London School of Economics. They lived and worked in Washington, DC then Austin, Texas until they moved their family to London. They have two children, one a psychologist and the other an aspiring hockey player.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Stowe:
                                  Being in Stowe village is great because you have easy access to nature along the recreation path but you can also walk to all the village amenities. Maple Street is one of the few areas of Stowe with a real neighborhood feel. In the winter, you can also access the snowmobile path right out the back door!

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  The Maple Street Dairy is located alongside other well-maintained historic residences in Stowe, within walking distance of all of the amenities of Stowe village. This is a perfect location for skiers and non-skiers alike, so that some in the group can take the ski shuttle to the mountain in the morning, while others have use of the car. Or if some drive up, the others are not stuck at a remote location, but can walk into the village to shop or eat.
