Kasey purchased this house in 2000

Why Kasey chose Waterbury Center

I think this is the best location in Vermont! A 5 minute drive to the village of Stowe, and 10 more minutes to the base of Stowe Mountain, arguably the best mountain on the east coast, 40 minutes from Burlington, and 20 minutes to Montpelier, and beautiful landscapes, mountains, rivers, lakes, and wildlife trails surrounding the entire area. Outdoor activities abound, no matter the season! The house is situated on a dirt road with very little traffic, but is close to both Waterbury and Stowe. Both Stowe and Waterbury are wonderful quaint small towns with amazing restaurants, breweries, and shopping areas. In the summer, kids will want to play in the treehouse, use the zip-line, or play near the 2 ponds on the property. Waterbury Reservoir is right down the road - a perfect bike ride away. There is a canoe at the house that can be strapped to a car & taken to many beautiful lakes and ponds in the area. There are many beautiful hiking trails in the area - short and long. There are world-renowned mountain biking trails in Waterbury and Stowe. In the winter, x-country ski to a network of trails right out the back door or travel 10 minutes to Trapp Family Lodge for groomed trails. Take a sleigh ride. Ice skate at a nearby indoor or at outdoor rink. There are snowshoes at the house to use to your heart's content. Firewood is always on site to make a cozy fire.

What makes this house unique

There is plenty of room for the kids to be active and occupy themselves at this house - inside and out! They won't want to leave!!

Great House for Large Groups and Families

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 had a great time at the house this spring. It was close to lots of mountain biking and the yard and deck were fantastic for BBQing and hanging out. The house was clean and as pictured. It had plenty of spaces for everyone to sleep and enjoy a little privacy. The owner was easy to communicate with.

Wonderful Waterbury House Great for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

We spent a recent 4th of July weekend holiday at the house with friends and family. We had a wonderful experience. The house easily accommodated our large group, with plenty of places to sleep for all. We all very much enjoyed the farmhouse ambiance, and comfortable accommodations. The kids absolutely loved the trampoline and custom treehouse. Dealing with the owners was easy and straightforward. We're completely satisfied with the experience, and would gladly return for another visit.

This house worked very well for the 3 families we traveled with during MLK weekend. Plenty of space for the kids and adults to enjoy themselves both together and apart. House is located a short distance from Stowe Village and Waterbury Downtown area. The owner was very easy to work with in terms of any questions we had or information we needed. Thanks for a great stay !

Cozy house!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the house over a long holiday weekend. Very convenient location to Stowe Village, Shaw's grocery store, and other activities. Spacious for 8 adults. Well maintained and clean. Linens were in good condition and comfortable. Game room was great with ping pong table and board games. Loved the wood burning fireplace/stove. Kasey, the owner, was great to work with and all details of the house were clear upon arrival. We had a great time!
