About this listing
Tucked in the woods, off the main road, but next to a restaurant and convenience store and shuttle to the mountain., You can ski home! We are 1/2 mile from the ski area's lowest lifts.
You will rent the upstairs in our house, with a little, common living room, and 5 bedrooms. One bedroom which has the most privacy, is romantic, and the best mountain views in the whole house, yoga nest, has a pull down ladder for stairs, and is insulated off the attic. It is for the nimble and young at heart. If you do not want to use yoga nest, then you can open a double futon in the living room instead.
You will have the upstairs, and access to the kitchen downstairs for breakfast only. We will provide granola and coffee, if you'd like more, bring it, and we'll store it for you in the kitchen. You are able to use all dishes, pots and pans in the kitchen, you just need to do your own dishes, thanks. Kitchen is closed otherwise. My son and I will be downstairs. After dinner, the bigger living room downstairs will be open to you if you need to spread out. Let us know if we need to negotiate more time in kitchen, that's possible, but the restaurants here are superb.
Interaction with guests
We know the area well and will be able to give you advice and tips concerning the area. Or, if you like your privacy, you will be completely on your own.
Other things to note
Wer are located at Stowe Forks where the first restaurant is when you leave the mountain, the famous Matterhorn. This is right at the bottom of our driveway, you can ski to the Matterhorn, and walk home, you can celebrate your great day on the mountain with a few beers, and never drive. There is also a convenience store right next door. We are right on the x-c trails too, it's a great location.
We have it quiet here at the house after 10 pm. People can be as loud and late as they like at the Matterhorn bar at the bottom of our driveway, which is our lower living room in a sense. Pool tables, games, good food and drink.
I am an outdoor enthusiast, 8th generation Vermonter, who travels the world to make non-fiction books, mostly for kids, but have a few out for adults too! Live simply, consume less, share more, is something that resonates with me. I love the Vermont healthy, can-do attitude, and the way we are re-energizing agriculture nationally with the idea of eating local, and knowing where your food comes from.
