About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, sleeps up to 12.

Nestled in the Village of Stowe, this exceptional property is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. In the past, it was operated as a Bed & Breakfast Inn. Built in 1860, the home has been tastefully renovated and still maintains the charm of wide-plank floors and 12 panel windows.

There are five guest rooms, each with private bath, a formal dining room, a large living room area with warm winter fire, a laundry room and spacious/well equipped kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances.. Three bedrooms are located on the upper level, and two bedrooms are located on the lower level. Bedrooms include 1 room with king-sized bed, 2 rooms with queen beds, 2 rooms with two extra-long twins that can also be set up as a king bed, and two roll away beds. A trundle bed also provides some additional sleeping space. Walk to shops, restaurants, winter shuttle at your doorstep. Off street parking. Golf, lakes and skiing nearby.

All guest rooms have firm mattresses, are air-conditioned and decorated with Vermont style quilts and matching dust-ruffles.


The living room has a classic wood-burning stove that opens to view the fire and closes for extra warmth, television w/ VCR & cable TV, sofa, love seat, wing-back chairs, two Martha Washington chairs, a reading area and game table. The formal dining room seats up to 15 comfortably. Large deck and barbecue grill, workshop for tuning skis or bikes, mudroom entrance from the parking lot are all extra features. The property is located in the center of Stowe Village, near the Stowe Community Church (likely the most photographed location in town) -a perfect spot for wedding parties or for the special guests of the bride or groom.

Golf: During summer and fall, enjoy hiking or mountain biking on the numerous Green Mountain trails and the Long Trail, an extension of the Appalachian trail. The Stowe Country Club is an exceptional golf course just minutes from the Inn, and there are 3 other courses nearby. Late September and early October brings some of the best fall foliage viewing in all of New England. Visit the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory, the Trapp Family Lodge (still run by the Trapp Family from The Sound of Music), Cabot Cheese Shop, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory, Vermont Cider Mill and many other local attractions.

Skiing activities: Mt. Mansfield at Stowe has a variety of terrain from beginning to expert skiing. Rated best ski resort in the East for multiple years, the ski terrain and charming village atmosphere make for a wonderful winter vacation. Alpine and cross country trails are minutes from the Inn. Local trolley/bus transportation provides easy access to the trails, ski entertainment is available. Combine your ski vacation with a spa treatment at one of the three exceptional spas in Stowe.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: I'm recently retired from my work as CEO of a national public health associatoin in Washington DC. I've owned this charming Vermont home since 1979 and in additional to vacation rentals, use in as an Inn part of the year. I love to travel and try to spend the winter months in a warm climate. I've been divorced for 24 years.

Why the Owner Chose Stowe, VT, USA:
This is a home on the national register of historic places. I've enjoyed renovating it and preserving the integrity of the property. The Village location is ideal for me. I can enjoy all shops and restaurants and never have to get in the car. It is really convenient and a pleasure to walk to the recreation path, and hiking and biking trails. Stowe is a unique little village with an international flare. It was used by the British vacation company, Crystal Holidays for multiple years to bring Europeans to the ski area in the winter months.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great Village location in an exceptional ski resort village. Walk to shops and restaurants. Well maintained historic property.
