  • Group Therapy East (GTE) '14 Guy's ski weekend

    "I just wanted to thank you for the place to stay in Stowe in February. Everything was perfect. The size, amenities, # of beds, and proximity to town, nightlife, and ski lifts. We had a late check-in and the office took care of everything to accommodate. We were able to eat our traditional dinner at Harrison's on Saturday night. Excellent food and service. Everyone enjoyed their stay very much and will look you up next year for our annual ski trip to Vermont."

  • Beautiful home, great location

    "My family of 4 spent the thanksgiving break in Stowe at Debra's condo. Debra was so easy to work with, very responsive and went above and beyond to accommodate us. The unit was extremely clean, cozy and comfortable. We happen to be in Stowe during a snow storm and the fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom made the home even more welcoming after being out in the cold. We made a few meals there and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. We highly recommend this property and we will be back. It is also dog friendly, which is a huge plus for us. Thank you Debra and Joel!!"

  • Spacious Lake Front Property

    "I was there in late October with a group of women friends. We found the house to be spacious and comfortable. Decor was very pleasant. Plenty of seating areas both inside and out. Large, fenced yard for safety of children. Can walk or ride bike out the door as close to bike path. Plenty of sightseeing in the area. Only 6 minutes by car to large supermarket. "Camp" is a term used in Maine for a cottage. This wonderful house is more than a cottage.... I am not sure how late in the year, the house is rented. The house is not insulated and can get cold in spite of using the wood stove and propane heater. We happened to have a couple of very rainy, windy days. Being New Englanders, we knew how to dress for this kind of cool weather so it was not a problem for us."

  • Absolute blast

    "What a lovely, lovely stay. Six adults, two large dogs, three kitties and a whole lot of fun! Warren was the most gracious host! He left flowers, wine and cheese for us at the property and of course Ben & Jerry ice-cream! He was also very friendly and flexible during our booking process, answering all questions patiently, adjusting to our requirements and allowing the cats to come and stay! He was also very helpful and promptly came over when a fuse blew out the lights and the space heater, and later swung by with his aunt to party with us (although just for a little bit). He loves dogs so our pups welcomed him excitedly! This is a very pretty location right on the lake and we had an absolute blast. We cooked a LOT of food, saw a LOT of Amazon and Netflix tv, and played a LOT in the snow. The deck with the propane grill was a super-hit and well utilized by both humans and dogs. The dogs especially had boisterous fun, running around leash free in the snow and even swimming in the lake although it was in the twenties with wind chill. The house had ample space, a roaring fireplace and enough sleeping areas for the whole party. The only drawback was that the central heating wasn't up and running at the time of our stay, so we had to make do with the fireplace and another heater. Upstairs was nice but the ground floor was freezing the day before we left, with gale level lake winds and very cold temperature. But we had so much fun sitting around the fireplace and bundling up in layers of quilts, that I cannot but give this place a 5 star!"
