Our large condo has just been fully repainted and within the last two years we remodeled the kitchen with new appliances, cabinets and countertops and redid the bathrooms. The living room furniture and downstairs carpeting is new. There is a wet bar in the living room. Two TV's (one flat screen) with cable outlets are in the living room and one of the bedrooms for flexibility. The expansive deck provides for grilling, eating, sunning, relaxing and watching sunsets over Mt. Mansfield and Spruce Peak with unimpeded views across a large meadow. The cheerful living room with red couches facing the fireplace and an oriental rug also contains original art by famed Vermont artist, Woody Jackson, as well as other original art and prints. The bookcases are full of books and games for adults and children -- just in case someone wants to stay inside. We have beds for six; air mattresses provide additional sleeping for two children.
The house is very well stocked with everything from linens and cozy duvets to hairdryers and shampoo. Ample glasses, dishes and attractive cutlery as well as a supply of basics and condiments can be found in the attractive kitchen.
Stonybrook has everything for adults and children; six tennis courts and two pools where our grandchildren always find new friends to keep them occupied. In addition, there is a sauna, rec and exercise room and a pitch and putt golf course. Our favorites are the hiking trails, one of which leads to a captivating waterfall. Stonybrook is at the midpoint of the Stowe recreation path which leads from the town to the base of Mt. Mansfield. Biking with younger children can be done on the grounds or the rec path and of course on town roads with older children. Restaurants, shopping and a great deli and bakery are all within walking distance.
Stowe is everyone's image of a New England town; quaint shops, a variety of restaurants, a picturesque church and a laid-back atmosphere. The summer abounds with theme weekends such as Antique cars, British cars and a hot-air balloon festival. The Trapp Family Resort hosts summer cultural events in their meadows, such as the Vermont Symphony Orchestra. There is fishing, mountain climbing and horse-back riding as well as camps for children all nearby.
