Fall family vacation 2016
We honeymooned in Stowe two years back during the summer and had we known about this place we would have stayed here! Originally New Englanders, my husband and I were looking to get away from the Florida heat for our first family vacation with our 19 month old daughter. Needless to say we wanted the comforts of a home rather than a traditional hotel. As first-time VRBO bookers, we were pleased to find everything that was offered on the website description of this place-the simple things such as clean sheets, fresh towels, a fully equipped kitchen. More importantly, a comfortable space that allowed us to come and go as we pleased without disturbing others. The apartment has a private enterance, is surrounded by trees, and was convenient to all the places we were looking to visit. The airport, downtown Burlington, and Stowe were all less then a 30 minute drive. Grocery stores, gas, highway, and restaurants were are all within a 10 minute drive. Rebecca and Kent were wonderful host from the beginning stages of booking our stay to our last evening. She was always available to answer our questions, offer a "local" perspective, and replenish anything we needed! Expecting a young one, she had a Pack n Play and stroller ready for us, and encouraged the use of their wonderful hot tub to unwind-which was such a treat in 36 degree weather-once our little one was down. Had it been summer, the pool would have been used as well. The one and only minor downside (as dramatically overstated in the negative review below) were a few housekeeping oversights such as dust and few cobwebs that were easily taken care of upon arrival. Judging by the other positive reviews below, that was obviously not the norm for her housekeeping arrangements. Rather than a front desk receptionist, we were greeted by Kent a few hours after arrival to make sure everything was okay. On our last night, we made sure to meet face-to-face with both our hosts to converse a bit and thank them for our stay. We were happy to know we booked with such pleasant people who offer such a great location for vacationers. We look forward to another stay in the future because all of the extras offered to ensure a memorable stay. If you are looking for a "Ritz-Carlton" stay, you are clearly on the wrong website. However, if you are looking for a wonderful property, great hospitality, and comfortable lodging while vacationing (all at a great price)..then look no further than this place!
