“Cute condo with big tvs and lots to offer”
We really enjoyed this cute condo in Stowe, which was nicely remodeled (much cuter than the other condos at this resort). Owner Leslie was very attentive and answered all my questions very timely. The kitchen and bedrooms were quite small but the super comfy beds and linens, 3D tv in LR, flat screen in master, lots of movies, WiFi, and the big screened in porch made up for it. Having the washer and dryer in the condo was great for midweek laundry. My parents were with us, and this particular condo had only 5 steps from the parking lot. Some of the others had many, MANY more steps up or down. This resort had lots to offer (indoor pool, game room, sauna, jacuzzi, free movie rentals, extra kitchen equipment, tennis courts, basketball court, playground, midweek towel exchange) and was in a convenient location half way between the mountain and town, off Mountain Road. Our family hiked to 3 of the area waterfalls, Bingham Falls was the favorite because of the huge (freezing cold) water hole at the base of the falls for swimming and jumping off rocks. We went to the Chin, once by auto toll road and Long Trail, but husband and son hiked Hell Brook Trail up and Long Trail down on the north end of the mountain (be sure to buy a hiking map at one of the bike shops). The shops in town were fun, but not very many. Our fav was the Mercantile with all the samples. So much to do, so little time- we didn't put a dent in the list. Very fun area for summer vaca. Could have easily spent more than a week here. Oh and the CHEESE- we totally overdosed on cheese samples at Cabot Annex.
Response from the owner Wow - you guys really hit all the highlights of Stowe. Free cheese samples at Cabots - definitely one of the hidden gems of Stowe. And I must agree - the hike across from the end of Toll Road to the Chin thru the alpine flowers is stunningly beautiful. My newest favorite hike - and I'm keen to hear what guests think of it - Cady Forest. It's one way up and one way down - and the bikes and the hikers have different paths. It's glorious, easy - and fun. Thanks again for the detailed review! Leslie
“Great Spring Skiing in Vermont!”
Tremendous week of spring skiing in Vermont! We skied Stowe, Jay's Peak, Smugglers Notch and Sugarbush. Stowe is right up the road from the condo, and the others were within an hour's drive from the condo. We also toured the Ben & Jerry Ice Cream factory and spent a day in Burlington, VT. This condo has numerous additions that make it special - a notch above the rest. First, the 3-D TV, surround sound, dish satellite, blue ray, DVD/CD theater system was fantastic! The owner's detailed notes made it very easy to use. The unit has Wi-Fi and a computer, if you don't bring your own electronic devise. The washer/dryer in the condo was very convenient. It was warm enough that we were able to take advantage of the screened in porch. We never ran out of hot water for showers - with four adults and two teenagers. The bed in the master bedroom was good - it did not sag to the middle like most rental condos. This condo had many subtle amenities, too like hooks everywhere to hang coats, equipment and clothes. The kitchen was efficient and had everything we needed - we ate in most nights. Our son loved the indoor pool and sauna; while we took advantage of the hot tub. The owner provided great information prior to our trip - like recommendations on where to rent skis and how to get good rates on lift tickets. She was a pleasure to work with! We have stayed in ski rental condos for 20 years. This unit was definitely a step above most, especially for the price!
Response from the owner Ah, shucks. Glad to hear that you guys had such a wonderful time. The Theatre in the Woods is my get-away from it all (and ski till I drop) location. So I'm always thrilled to bits when my guests love it like I do! And spring is coming - the screened in porch is going to be the best place to sit and enjoy morning coffee. Then summer - with beautiful places to hike and walk and bike and just enjoy - and then - tada - Fall! 4 Seasons and tons of reasons to drop by Stowe! Thanks again for the great review. Leslie
“Great for all ages!”
We stayed for a weekend getaway at Theatre in the Woods for some much needed family time with our adult children. We needed a place that would offer excitement for the young people and comfort and relaxation for the near retirees. Theatre in the Woods exceeded all our expectations! The location allowed the young people to ski at two nearby slopes while the parents relaxed and took in the sights around Stowe. The unit was comfy, clean, well maintained, with ample room for 6 adults. The kitchen was well-equipped for the chef in our family who made a gourmet meal. The Wi-fi was sophisticated for everyone's iphones, ipads, and laptops. We took advantage of the varied DVD collection and board games. Before our arrival, the staff was responsive to all our questions in a timely, courteous manner. Would definitely recommend Theater in the Woods to anyone seeking a weekend retreat in Stowe.
Response from the owner Oh thank you, thank you for loving the Theatre - our home away from home. So glad to hear you guys had a blast! Leslie
Well appointed ,clean, comfortable condo. It was equipped with everything we needed. The owner was so pleasant to deal with!
Response from the owner Glad to hear that your stay was perfect. The Theatre in the Woods is just an ideal place for New Year's - so I'm thrilled you agree with me! And it's my pleasure to help my guests - I love seeing them have a seriously great time! Leslie
“Great place to be !”
We highly appreciated our stay. Great place, clean with full services and even more. Great way to visit and enjoy Stowe's area.
“Great family vacation location”
The condo was wonderful, the booking hassle free and the owner was very welcoming. The location is great, and the giant 3D TV is a ton of fun! We were impressed with the supplied DVD collection, the books and the games. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped. My family had a great week, and we definitely want to go back.
Response from the owner Glad you guys had a great time. I agree - that 3D TV is amazing It's so bright and clear - glad you enjoyed it. Leslie
“It was so relaxing and enjoyable.”
I loved the Theater in the Woods in Stowe Vt. I would definitely stay there again. It was so clean and I loved the kitchen and porch. The staff was very helpful and the condo was well equiped with everything that you possibly need. I also loved the fact that the owner made up a book of all activities in the area and rated her favorite places. It was very enjoyable.
Response from the owner Thanks so much for loving our home away from home! Glad to hear all went great. Leslie
“Fantastic family vacation”
We had a wonderful time in Stowe & found the Theatre in the Woods to be perfect for us in every way. We had beautiful weather every day, enjoyed the bike path each morning (the kids especially loved the corn maze with its baby cows & goats, and the farmers market), hiked the Nose to Chin on Mt Mansfield, hiked & swam at Bingham Falls, rode the alpine Slide, visited Burlington (the waterfront, Church St & had dinner at the Vt Pub & Brewery), golfed the executive course at Stoweflake (perfect for the kids!) & the mini golf course, and of course, a lot of visits to Ben & Jerry's. The kids also loved the pool, as I think all kids do! The location is really perfect. Favorite food spots were Cactus Cafe, the Blue Donkey & Piecasso. All in all, it was perfect. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful spot with us!!
Response from the owner I agree totally - Stowe is the best family place in the world. So much do do. And I'm completely impressed that you guys did the hike from Nose to Chin - that's just so much fun (and so weather dependent!). Leslie
“A/C not really "central"”
I do not recommend staying in the Theater In The Woods during the hot months of the summer. Daytime highs were in the upper 80's and low 90's during our stay in late July. We selected this unit because it advertised itself as having central a/C. While the condo claims to have central a/C it is not what I considered central a/C to be. The a/C unit is a large unit in the wall of the living room. This keeps the main living areas very comfortable but does not cool the bedrooms. There are no a/C vents in the bedrooms so when the doors are closed it gets warm. There are ceiling fans in 2 of the 3 bedrooms which help. The 3rd bedroom has no ceiling fan and only a single crank out window that opens onto the porch.. The 2 beds in that room are on a single elevated L- shaped platform with the twin mattresses touching at the base of the L. Make sure if those 2 twin mattresses are both occupied that the people don't mind touching one another. The kitchen sink/dishwasher have a funky hot water mechanism that requires you to push a button inside a door 5 minutes ahead of time if you want hot water. The signage about this is not readily noticeable and it took a day before we figured it out. We had trouble with the fire alarm in the master bedroom going off if we opened the bathroom door after taking a shower, even though we had the vent fan on. This happened 2 days in a row so we unplugged the smoke detector to stop it and reconnected it when we left. Not to sound all negative we loved the large screened porch. This condo has the best lighting of any condo we have ever stayed in. You can read anywhere in any room. The kitchen is well supplied. The bedrooms do not have closets but do have dressers with drawers. The master bedroom has a small wardrobe where clothes can be hung up. The other good qualities of the condo are mentioned in the other reviews.
Response from the owner We've had the hottest summer ever - and even our massively oversized A/C had challenges keeping up - so I'm really pleased to hear that it managed to keep the main living areas cool - that must have been difficult. We have fans (not just ceiling fans either) available to help air circulation - but this summer, as everyone is probably well aware, was amazing. I'm glad to hear that every thing else was great - just a quick note about the instant hot water heater. Having one means unlimited hot water - but the hot water does have to get there - and surely unlimited showers is worth a tiny wait. Glad to hear the porch was the best - I have to say it's a highlight for me as well. Thanks for the feedback, Leslie
Our family of 5 (3 children ages 6 - 13) stayed at "Theatre in the Woods” during Christmas break. It truly was a wonderful vacation. What made our vacation so wonderful were the accommodations and location! "Theatre in the Woods” had all the modern comforts and amenities of home. In addition to having the greatest bedding, kitchen accessories and washer and dryer, the condo was pristine. This condo is one of the nicest --if not the nicest--condo in the development. In terms of location, the condo is centrally located, and convenient to everything. We had a wonderful stay and plan on renting "Theatre in the Woods” again!
