About Liz Fariello

We are a family of 5 from New Jersey. Ralph & I first started enjoying the Stowe/Waterbury area almost 20 years ago when we got engaged. I’m a proud UVM grad & never fell out of love with this part of Vermont. And when I told Ralph about a B&B I’d always wanted to visit in Waterbury on Rt 100, he knew exactly how he wanted to propose. Since then we’ve come back many, many times to celebrate anniversaries, reunions & share the fun with our 3 kids. The summer is our favorite time up here, but of course no place is better in winter than Stowe.

Liz Fariello purchased this house in 2015

Why Liz Fariello chose Vermont

When we decided to take the property plunge, we knew exactly where we wanted to be in Stowe, and fortunately, we found our home! We are within easy biking distance to the Stowe Rec Path, a few minutes to the mountain, a few minutes to Stowe Village, several restaurants & shops within 1 mile, but still an idyllic, peaceful location.

What makes this house unique

Stoweflake Balloon Festival (held this year 7/10-7/12) occurs literally just beyond our backyard. See the photo!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was fabulous. It was warm and friendly. We had 3 families, a total of 11 people, and it was completely spacious. The layout of the house worked perfectly. Noise did not carry. The beds extremely comfortable and great hot water for showers. The setting pristine. We felt extremely welcome by the owner.



We cooked our own meals and the kitchen worked great. Dishes and glasses a plenty.



The heated garage was a bonus and really made a difference as we picked a very cold weekend to be up there.



Even the fireplace worked great and had terrific draw.



The kids loved it and spent hours playing pool and ping pong.



Thanks so much to the owner for providing such a great and memorable experience for our family and friends.

A great house with a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for a weekend of golf and hiking. (8 adults) The location of this home is just perfect. It is less than a mile from the amazing Stowe Country Club and about four miles from the base of Stowe Mountain. It is also right off of Mountain Road which is loaded with restaurants and pubs in both directions. A nice added bonus was that the home is 1/3 a mile from the famous Alchemist Brewery. Cant beat that!

As far as the home itself, there was nothing I can think of that the home did not provide. It was meticulously cleaned when we arrived. The grounds are clearly professionally cared for and the views of the fields and mountains were just amazing. All eight members of our party had their own room, there was plenty of room for everyone. Its the kind of home that multiple families could use without being on top of each other. When we were not golfing or hiking, the house provided a plethora of things to do. Pool tables, ping pong, darts, a two level deck with grill, lawn games, were just some of the things we enjoyed there.

The owner, Liz was a pleasure to work with. She responded via e-mail to all of the questions I had. She also left an extremely useful guide which was loaded with local info on what to do/where to go for fun. The pancake mix and maple syrup welcoming gift was a nice touch! Thanks for sharing your amazing home with us!

Cheers!

Beautiful location! Stunning, well kept house!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 10, ( including 4 teenagers) stayed. Couldn't be happier with the location, house and owners. The house was immaculate, well maintained, not lacking anything. The game room was a gem! We were here the same time as the stoweflake balloon festival, which goes right over the deck, front and back yard. Unfortunately the stove top had only one working burner, which was not the owners fault, and was VERY quick at responding to us, and had maintenance here very fast to try to resolve ( it was a stove manufacturing fault, NOT the owners) Great location!! Quick drive to everything! The pancake mix and syrup was a very pleasent surprise and was delicious! We will miss the morning coffee on the deck with the stunning views! Thank you for a great weekend get away! Our family goes away a lot on family get always and this was voted by the kids as there favorite house!

Amazing house, property and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing time staying here! It is truly one of the nicest houses I have ever stayed at. From the expansive lawn for games all day, to the amazing deck for chilling and grilling, a fire pit with the creek right behind it, and then there's the inside - Pool/game room, pingpong, sauna, beautiful rooms, kitchen and lighting!

To top it all off, the Alchemist is a stones throw away as well as lots of other shops, restaurants and things to do!

I'd highly recommend this house to anyone and I definitely plan on staying here again!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated a 70th birthday with 15 people, ages 11 months to 75 years. The house has something for everyone and plenty of room to spread out. We only wish that we had more sun so as to dip our toes in the little stream.

Terrific Stay

  • 5 of 5

We recently booked this house with 2 other families, so it was 6 adults and 8 kids in total. The house is very spacious and has a really great layout for such a large group. It was well maintained and was very well supplied with the basics. The adults loved relaxing in the living room after dinner, while the kids played ping pong or hung out in the family room. The spa-like sauna and nearby bathroom was lovely, and added amenities like the billiards table, ping pong table, Sonos and even the heated garage were great. We travel together for a yearly ski vacation, and being only 10 minutes from the mountain was terrific. Liz was very responsive to questions and we'd happily rent this one again!
