Perks for the Parents

This historic mountain paradise retreat for the whole family has high-end interiors to die for and is less than 1 mile away from the lifts and trails of the Stowe Mountain Resort. It sleeps 8 in the main house and 2-4 in the guest house, and it a very special place for a family getaway. It has private space for grandparents, caregivers, or multiple families traveling together. Each bedroom has a dedicated full bathroom for hotel-style living, with several deep soaking bathtubs. Comfort and joy are the guiding principles of this beautiful residence with luxury linens from Parachute Home and luxury bath products from Public Goods and Vermont-based Ursa Major. There are charging ports / outlets by every bed and filtered drinking water from the 2 café refrigerators. Multiple WFH options include a built-in desk area in one of the primary bedrooms. The hosts can also help to connect guests with their network of local babysitters for adult nights out!

Why Kids Love it

This house is ideal for ages 4 and up. There are tons of games, amazing books, a private stream and woods area to explore. There are 2 fun kids’ bunk rooms with books and toys. One is ideal for younger kids with 2 twin / single beds and room for pack & play, along with a cozy, custom reading area. The 2nd bunk room is geared towards tweens and teens with 3 twin beds and 1 full sized bed. It also has a fabulous, commissioned vinyl record wall art to anchor the music theme of this space. Baby gear can be rented locally as needed with advance notice. Also, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory where you can have guided tours and sample ice cream flavors is just 25 minutes’ drive away.

About the Location

Located just outside Stowe, Vermont, known as the ‘ski capital of the east’, this residence is perfectly placed to make the most of the snow and the scenic Green Mountains. It’s just 1 mile from the 1st lifts and hiking trails of the Stowe Mountain Resort at Spruce Peak. There are 120 trails for all abilities, terrain parks and a gondola ride to the summit of Mount Mansfield, the highest peak in Vermont. The family-friendly resort of Smugglers Notch Resort is just down the road. Across the street from the residence is the town recreation path, which you can take to bike or walk to town. Stowe is well worth exploring with pretty, New England-style architecture and local boutiques, craft shops, and cozy eateries.

Accommodation Details

The residence has 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms in the Main House, plus 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom in the separate barn Guest House. In the full property in total, you’ll find 2 kingsize, 1 queensize, 1 full / double and 5 twins / singles that include 2 bunk rooms for the kids. Two additional guests can sleep on the double sofabed in the main living room. There are 3 bathtubs: 1 clawfoot and 2 soaking tubs. There are 2 cozy living rooms and 2 fully fitted chef’s kitchens: 1 each in the Main House and the Guest House. Dining options are plentiful with a formal dining space for 8, banquette dining in the Main House kitchen for 5+, banquette dining in barn guest house kitchen for 4+ and screened-in porch outdoor dining for 8. Outdoor space includes an all-season screened porch centered around a dual-sided woodburning fireplace. A 7-person hot tub that looks out onto our private backyard with a grill and there’s a streamside relaxation area with seating and a firepit. A 2-car garage with 2 EV chargers has room for storing ski and snowboard gear, bikes and strollers.

Style Notes

High design, historic details and state-of-the-art amenities. This 1859 farmhouse stands as a beautiful example of Northern New England architecture, blending the best of contemporary interior design with original features. Each space has been professionally designed by Beach Plum Properties, and the entire home is outfitted for maximum guest comfort, with radiant heated floors, heated towel racks and earth-friendly body and home products for guests. The Mountain Road Residence is the only fossil-fuel-free rental in the Stowe area, with all its systems powered by electricity and complementary EV charging. The huge 7-person hot tub is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the outside at any time of year. We love the radiant heated floors and towel racks in all full bathrooms (and 2 mudrooms); the colorful kids’ rooms and life-affirming design; and the natural beauty of the mountains on the doorstep.

I'm an interior designer and real estate developer with projects all over the country. My goal in every project is to create spaces that evoke a feeling of joy, comfort and belonging. I am especially inspired by Ingrid Fetell Lee (@ingridfetell on IG) and her Aesthetics of Joy philosophy. I love to travel with my family, my partner and two kiddos (15 and 11) and have had incredible recent trips to Thailand and Cambodia, London, Iceland, Denmark and several spots in one of our favorite countries, Mexico.

Stowe, Vermont

Ski Capital of New England

Stowe is located at the base of Mt. Mansfield, Vermont’s highest mountain peak. From December through March, there is fantastic skiing and snowboarding to be had; during the warmer months, hiking, mountain biking, and fishing draw visitors to return. Families can find a few of their favorite things at the Trapp Family Lodge, run by the Von Trapp family whose story inspired The Sound of Music, and can tour the Ben & Jerry’s factory in nearby Waterbury.
