About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

We have a unique location. Our mountain view home is one of a few private residences just minutes from Stowe Mountain. The house is convenient to Stowe Village and the slopes, yet set back from the noise on a wooded bluff. (The house is 3.3 miles from the mountain and 4.2 from the village).

The secluded property has beautiful views of the mountains. Close to restaurants, shops, galleries, the bike path, and outdoor activities. This custom built home has 3 levels with 4 bedrooms and 3 ½ baths. There are 2 master bedrooms with king beds, one en suite bath, one bedroom with twins, one with twins and a bunk bed. It's great for families or groups from 8-10 people, yet cozy enough for 2-4. The home is beautifully decorated with fully equipped gourmet kitchen with cherry cabinets, inviting living room and dining area with wood burning fireplace. TV/DVD/Wifi. Linens provided.

About Julia Marsh

The house is owned by my mom and managed by me. My father, a custom home builder on Cape Cod, designed and built in the home in the late 1980s as a ski house for us and another family. My brother and I learned to ski at Stowe, making the five hour drive up from Cape Cod nearly every weekend in the winter. We enjoyed many off-season trips to the house as well for hiking, biking and hot ballooning.

Julia Marsh purchased this house in 1988

Why Julia Marsh chose Vermont

Since Stowe's ski mountain is on State Forest land, we are one of the closest private homes to the resort. The house is ideally situated 2 miles from the mountain and 3 miles from town. We're also very close to the bike path and the free shuttle that runs along the Mountain Road.

What makes this house unique

The house is secluded yet convenient to town and the mountain, with a view of Mt. Mansfield. The property is perfect for both apres ski-- with a brand new seven person hot tub outside and a large great room surrounded by a wood burning fireplace inside-- and off season bookings with it's large backyard, grill and deck.

Green Mountains Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as shown in the pictures and as described - beautiful, peaceful and welcoming. The view from the living room and back deck was gorgeous. We happened to be there during an off-and-on week of rain in June (which didn't detract from our visit at all) so the view of the mountain out the back window was constantly changing and always magical. The home was very well cared for and had absolutely everything a visitor could possibly need or want. There were enough beds and bathrooms to accommodate a group of 7 women. The kitchen was great. Our interactions with the owner were excellent - very prompt and completely helpful. We hated to leave and plan on returning. Thank you Pam and Julia.

Awesome outdoor area and view of the mountains

  • 3 of 5

Our family of four (including two boys ages 9 and 5) had a nice summer stay at this home with great mountain views. If the items below are addressed, it is a 5/5 star property.

Pros:

-The yard and grounds is a 5 out of 5. We had spirited family bocce ball games and enjoyed nights around the firepit. The owner supplies plenty of dry firewood and the surrounding woods supplies plenty of kindling. There is a nice creek in the back that the kids loved exploring

-The location on Rt 108 makes this house convenient to everything

-The house has TONS of bedroom and bath space. Enough for at least 2 families

-Owners leave plenty of area information to help guide you around Stowe and the surrounding areas

-Owners are friendly, easy to deal with, and answer questions promptly

-The basement area provides kids a great location to hang out

-The house is VERY well stocked with nice dishes, wine glasses, towels, etc.… makes this house feel like home (not a rental)

-Great main floor washer/dryer

-The outdoor table and chairs and deck is awesome - the owner has clearly invested here and it shows!

Cons:

-The main floor furniture shows its wear and at a minimum needs a DEEP steam cleaning. This area could really use investment

-All the carpeting and rugs need a DEEP steam cleaning (at minimum). This area could really use investment

-The chairs around the kitchen table are a yard sale hodgepodge of folding chairs. The upholstery on these chairs is filthy. Most VRBO homes use solid wood chairs for a reason - spills just wipe away with a clean rag

Area:

-Tons to do in this area including plenty of rainy day activities. Stowebowl was a ton of fun. We even brought our hockey equipment and enjoyed stick-n-shoots at Stowe Arena

-Hiking in the area is amazing. If you are looking for a great, moderate hike, try Jay Peak. it is about an hour away but worth every minute

-Stowe prices are definitely “resort-like.” This is coming from a family who lives in one of the most expensive areas of the country (Washington, DC)

-Breweries, Breweries, Breweries… Alchemist is a MUST for beer lovers (and is family friendly)

Great location with awesome view

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with 7 friends for a golf weekend. Great views, nice lawn for games, fire pit and hot tub. We went in summer to escape heat in southern New England, but would be a great winter place as well.

Fabulous house!

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful place for our family to stay for over a week. It was big, clean, and cozy too! Gorgeous mountain views. Well stocked with all the linens and dishes you could need. A washer and dryer, 4 bathrooms! I would give this house 5 stars but a couple things we didn't like were the locks on the bedroom and bathroom doors didn't work for the most part and there were occassionaly ants in the kitchen. Overall a wonderful house for our big family.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your great review and we are glad you enjoyed your time in Stowe! Unfortunately, the ants are a very short seasonal event and we try to treat for them every year. Pam Marsh

Great place for a group ski weekend

  • 4 of 5

The location and size of this home made it a great place for our guys ski weekend. It's well furnished and the kitchen has everything you would need. The fireplace and hot-tub worked great and added to our enjoyment and comfort on a very cold weekend. It's close to the mountain as well as lots of restaurants and bars. Plenty of room to be together and spread out. I would definitely stay here again next time I'm heading to Stowe.
