I can not say enough about our stay in Vermont. As we drove into the Valley, it was breath taking... snow covered trees that canopied the road were absolutely beautiful. The cabin looked like a post card. Snow covered the roof and grounds, white lights on several trees in the yard.... it was truly a winter wonderland. The cabin had everything you needed, hot tub, snow shoes, wood burning stove, modern kitchen appliances/granite counter tops, washer/dryer, all rooms were comfortably furnished with several antiques pieces and exposed wood ceiling beams that took us back in time. Both bedrooms were upstairs in a loft - which also added to the uniqueness of this cabin. Both beds had down comforters that kept us nice and warm through the night. We have stayed places before where the owners didn't put much thought or creativity into their furnishings/decor and as renters were disappointed. But it is quite obvious that Lisa takes pride in her cabin and wants her guests to feel at home. I actually felt like I was staying at a friends home, not renting from strangers. The location and the cabin itself far EXCEEDED my expectations and we are already planning on returning next year. Trapp Family Lodge was only a few minutes away - we went snow shoeing and cross country skiing there, we had a blast. We also drove to Stowe Ski resort for a day of skiing (~20 min drive from cabin). Check with Lisa before you visit to ask about the road conditions. We rented a 4x4 vehicle and was glad that we did because several cars were having trouble driving up the hills due to the ice on the roads. We had no problems though. The town of Stowe has lots of little shops and restaurants. This is the longest review I have ever written and still don't feel like I have given this cabin/location justice. But then again, I do want there to be availability for my vacation next year - lol.
