A Very Special Place
The 35 previous reviews have all given this property 5 stars for very compelling reasons, and you can now make it 36. The place is even more impressive than the pictures, and if you can find a flaw, good luck! A great spot that will more than meet your expectations. No need to repeat all its merits so clearly delineated in the other reviews or what great hosts you will have. We spent 5 spectacular days with snow every day creating a winter wonderland. A very special place!
Wish I could stay more often
Tina's place continues to be terrific. We're a family of five (parents and kids, 17, 15, 10) and have stayed here multiple times during ski season. Although we can't always rely upon the weather to be perfect, the apartment never fails! Clean, quiet, and luxurious in a great location. What more could you want?
Beautiful accommodations in private apartment on stunning property close to Stowe mountain and town
Our family of four had a very comfortable and smooth stay at the private apartment attached to this stunning house. All amenities and conveniences were there for us including linens, detergent, paper goods and kitchen appliances. Tina was extremely attentive and helpful with anything we needed. The property is simply stunning and we want to come back when we can enjoy the grounds in warmer weather. We had an easy ride to stowe mountain for skiing and were minutes from many restaurants. Highly recommend!
Magnificent estate, we were thrilled to stay there
Words cannot describe how lovely this home was, and the kindness and thoughtfulness of the owners in every detail of our stay. The views are amazing. The residence we stayed in is absolutely beautiful and no detail was spared by the owners when it was built. The home is a 10 minute drive to every destination in Stowe. I would highly recommend anyone considering staying in the area to consider it. I don't have enough good things to say. At the price offered by the owner, it is a tremendous value for anyone staying in the area. We'd absolutely stay there again in a heart beat.
Tina and John's apartment was everything we expected and more! There is plenty of room for a family of 5. The kids slept on the futons, which Tina had ready for us when we arrived, my husband and I slept in the master bedroom. The apartment was exceptionally clean and very comfortable. The master bedroom was large with gorgeous views of the property. The one large bathroom worked just fine for our family. The shower was one of the best showers we have ever experienced, very luxurious!
Tina and John are very gracious hosts, always answered any questions we had and went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. We can't say enough about the apartment! It is gorgeous, property is amazing, kitchen is very well stocked, furniture very comfortable, master bed - very comfortable, movies, direct tv, and video games, heated floors throughout the entire place.... what more could we have needed? We truly enjoyed our stay in the apartment, it was perfect for our family. Thank you Tina & John! ... and thank you for the chilled bottle of wine upon our arrival, what a nice touch!
Beautiful property- large rooms; very well-maintained
It was a wonderful winter wonderland at this property- beautiful scenery and peaceful. Short drive to town and skiing. Highly recommended.
