Why Blake and Shirly chose Vermont

We wanted to create memories with our children in a beautiful, mountain home that offered all the necessary amenities, yet in a unique setting. We always loved Stowe and visit it frequently, so we decided to make it a permanent destination.

What makes this house unique

A log home always gives you a feel that you are away on vacation. Every season provides views that are more impressive with each visit. Its a truly remarkable vacation home, ideal for relaxing and reconnecting with friends and loved ones, while taking in the views from inside, from the 800 square foot deck or from the hot tub.

Beautiful with a spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family went for the weekend. We were 11 people, with 8 "kids" aged 15 to 28. The house is large and beautiful and the view is amazing. We all enjoyed the pool table, hot tub, games and wide screen TV"s. Kitchen is modern and fully equipped. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms decent size. Secluded and private with large lot but close to town. It was a perfect spot for our family to spend some quality time together.

Amazing vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with family and friends for a long overdue weekend away for some skiing. The house was everything we could ask for and more. Spacious with amazing mountain views, plenty of amenities at the house to keep everyone occupied and everyone to have space. Not to mention the locale of being so close to the mountain, the downtown area and local breweries. Owners were very communicative and helpful. Would highly recommend staying here as I know I will be again!

Perfect family get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family get together with a mix of adults and kids ages 1-16 years! The house was set up perfectly for everyone to have their own space when they wanted it and a great open room when everyone wanted to be together. The location was close to town and the slopes! The house is absolutely beautiful and a treat for the entire family to stay there. Highly recommend this exceptional mountain get away!

Great Home, Exactly As Described

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family and me, which included 8 adults and 4 children. The location is great and the house is very private. The home is exactly as described in the listing and Shirly was very responsive whenever we had any questions. I would highly recommend staying at this home. The one downside - as is the case with any log-cabin style home - was you could hear everything in the home and from bedroom-to-bedroom. This would not have been an issue, except for the fact that we had several, very excited, young children. The upside to this is the home is great for kids (but keep a close eye on them if the woodstove is going!).

Very high expectations were more than fully met!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay in Shirly and Blake's fantastic lodge. The view of the mountains from inside and outside is gorgeous, very easy access to and from the town of Stowe, restaurants, surrounding resorts, the Von Trapp Family Lodge grounds, numerous "swimming holes" and other attractions, ample room for our group of 8 adults, and fun things to do like the hot tub, pool table, dart board and games. On our first night we spent several hours on the deck reveling in the celestial show put on courtesy of the Perseids meteor shower. Wow! Shirly and Blake were very attentive hosts at all times before, during, and after our stay. We will definitely return for another family outing in Stowe. Thanks!

Wonderful mountain getaway home!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations are excellent for a large group with plenty of activities whether you stay in or go out. The views from the living area and the deck are wonderful; I imagine each season at this property has its own charm. I highly recommend this property for short or long stays!
