With Mom and Dad having honeymooned in Stowe, we always knew we wanted to come back here.
So five years ago, when the whole family rallied once again in Stowe, we were looking this time to return for good, and to find a property with a great view. After two week ends of looking and striking out, we decided to at least wrap up our search with a good Austrian pastry at the Trapp Lodge.
As we broke off the Mountain Road and headed up the road to the Trapps we spotted the Stonybrook grounds and the front line of condos. It was immediately clear to us that if we were to buy in Stowe, this was the place to buy, and if at all possible to try to get one of the front line "Farm Row" units that had the best, and truly breathtaking view of both Mt. Mansfield and Spruce Peak. After a 2 year wait we finally got exactly what we wanted.
Then we renovated the condo with the latest appliances and yet with photos and decor such that our visitors would have no question, "We are in Vermont!"
