About John Allis

Property is owned by a local small business owner who grew up in Stowe, knows the area well and loves welcoming guests to our historic mountain village for world class skiing, dining and adventure.

John Allis purchased this house in 2000

Why John Allis chose Stowe

This property had everything I was looking for: It's a log cabin with a real wood fireplace, mountain views and a location at the end of a quiet, yet easily accessible country road. Access wasn't a problem (I don't want to have to drive a 4-wheel drive) and it has cable internet.

What makes this house unique

Same as above: Log Cabin with wood (not gas) fireplace, outdoor hot tub and mountain views at the end of a dead end road with high speed internet. Score!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a guest post a 3-star review. He then removed it, but not until after I had written a response. Since I feel this should be said anyway, below is the response I had written. All of our guests should read this.

Let me clarify a few things:

TRASH REMOVAL: He's correct on this one. This is a vacation rental, not the Town Dump. The Stowe Transfer Station is open every day except Tuesday. It is your responsibility to sort and dispose of your own trash, recycling and food waste.

LAUNDRY: Wrong. We do NOT want clients doing the laundry. We'd much rather have our housekeeper do it, as it needs to be done thoroughly.

HOT WATER: Wrong. The hot water works fine. In fact, we have two water heaters (one primary, one backup for emergencies). This guest arrived 2-3 hours before check-in time... before the well pump had time to re-fill its cistern, which we had drained to fill the hot tub with fresh water. Mr. Nicholson, upon finding low water pressure before 5pm, started throwing valves near the water heater ("I'm a man... I can fix this") before contacting us. By the time he called us, he had reduced the flow of water to the hot water heater so that it didn't work properly for the rest of his stay. When we went in to clean the house after he left, we discovered that there was no hot water and that the valves and switches that control the water heaters were in the wrong position. We switched them back and everything works as it should.

CLEANLINESS: As I mentioned, Mr. Nicholson arrived 2-3 hours early. We have an experienced housekeeper who, when given the amount of time needed, can clean the house well. When you show up at 2pm for a 5pm check in, that's not going to happen. Contrary to what Mr. Nicholson said, we do NOT expect guests to clean the house (or do the laundry).

The Take-Away for Guests:

1) If something doesn't work, contact us BEFORE you mess with it. There's usually an easy fix.

2) Due to this review we will no longer honor requests for early check-in. No exceptions. If you arrive in Stowe early, tour the Ben and Jerry's factory, get some donuts at Cold Hollow Cider Mill or hit one of our local micro-breweries for some liquid sunshine. Just don't arrive 2-3 hours early and expect things to be clean and ready.

Good point on the bathroom towel hooks. We'll install some.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

This house was PERFECT for our group. Everyone had their own bed. Great living space. My only wish was that the hot tub was a bit warmer and was filled up more. It hovered at 75-80 degrees the entire weekend. We would definitely stay again. Thank you John!

Beautiful living space, easy access to ski resort

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a perfect weekend at this beautiful chalet. There were plenty of rooms and bathrooms for a group of 4 couples and communication with the owners was easy and extremely welcoming. We did have issues with the oven and would have loved a little bit newer hot tub but we knew what we signed up for and the stay was wonderful! 4.7/5 :)

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying! We found the oven portion of the range was inoperable on Friday, the day you arrived. That was disappointing. We try to be prepared with spares for most items in the building but that one caught us. We couldn't get a tech in there until Monday (yesterday). They were able to provide a temporary fix and will have a replacement part in place by this Friday. As for the hot tub... True. It's not fancy, but it's hot and blows tons of bubbles and that's really the point! We'll mail out the iPad you left behind today. I'll be sure to post a full 5/5 digits in the zip code! ;)

Dream Vermont Vacation for All

  • 5 of 5

Finding space for a group of 16 with young children and teenagers that will satisfy everyone is not easy. This house and location couldn't be more perfect for all our needs. The kids were even impressed, so much so that they couldn't stop Instagramming every second. All the adults loved the hot tub after a long day of skiing in Stowe, the kids had their private space downstairs. When we lit a fire in the fireplace and the snow started falling outside the setting couldn't be anymore idyllic.

We didn't know what to expect so brought way too much cooking items for the kitchen. My word of advice is to bring food but nothing else, the house comes with everything you would need and then some!

We can't wait to be back again next year.

Beautiful Chalet Style

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience staying at the Stowe Log Chalet. Close to Stowe (town and mountain resort), easy to find but still secluded and quiet. There were 16 of us but we were all very comfortable. Having the four FULL bathrooms really helped. Beds/linens were extremely comfortable. Especially enjoyed the large fireplace at the center of the house. Exactly what anyone could want when it comes to a ski chalet. Newt was quick to respond before and during our stay. Highly recommend!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

Renting the chalet was a perfect choice for our recent trip to Stowe Mountain. The property was large enough to accommodate 14 adults comfortably. It was very clean and updated which was nice and priced right. A short taxi ride to Stowe center made it convenient for night life. I would highly recommend this property to others.
