“Just fabulous”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Where to start to review this wonderful home from home (we rented from an owner via Tripadvisor). Stunning location & fabulous views. A quiet resort in a quiet area of Stowe. Beautifully decorated, comfortably furnished, well equipped, everything you could need; so many thoughtful touches. We so appreciated the air con and the WiFi. As it was, sadly, far too hot to do the walks and cycles we had planned we lazed away the days on the deck under the umbrella and staggered as far as the excellent local eateries in the evenings. It was useful to be able to get basic provisions for breakfast etc at the Edelweiss Country store and we enjoyed shopping at the nearby Sunday Farmers market. The clean pool was a godsend in an effort to keep cool. There is so much to do and see in the area none of us wanted to leave.

It was not what I expected, but it was not horrible. What I liked was the location, easy access to many activities in the sorrounding areas. Our room was clean, but the bedroom was very small. There were literally only two feet on each side between the bed and the walls. The bed was full size (or queen at the most.) The bathroom fit only one person at a time. The balcony was nice and spacious. The kitchen was small, but ok, and the living room was fine. Customer service was good. The air conditioning unit is located in then livingroom. It's a little problematic when you have a very hot day (over 90 degrees) because the bedroom is not as cool as the livingroom due to haing no cooling system in the livingroom. At least there was only one day of 90 or over. It was not pleasant. The toilet kept clogging and overflowing although we were careful not to put a lot of paper in it. Decoration was dated. TV cable worked intermittently, and I have problems playing DVDs at times. I would not stay here again.

The room decor may have been dated, but our room was clean and the beds comfortable. The property was easy to find and conveniently located to all of Stowe's attractions. The kids enjoyed the pool when it was raining and there was nothing else to do. I would stay here again.

We Booked thru Global Vacations and found the condo conveniently located and clean. The office folks were nice and quite accomodating. The condo was Nothing fancy in terms of furnishings but the kitchen was complete and beds comfortable. We would stay here again if we find our way back to Stowe.

We were there for one night only . I don't understand why the bad critics. We had a very nice room, we enjoyed the Inside pool and the village of Stowe.The lobby is very nice to sit and read or enjoy a glass of wine. This summer it will be even better with the outdoor swimming pool , the two patios. A special thanks to Robert Reed , the general manager,who made our stay even more enjoyable. Don't forget to take a walk on the recreation path. Yes I would go back.

Room Tip: We had room 30 with two nice beds.

I really expected more. I picked this place because it had an indoor pool. That was the best thing about the place. Kind of run down but it was clean. I would not go back there. It was definitely an older time share. There were newer buildings on the property but of course my family and I were put in the older ones. Ice maker in the fridge wasn't working. There were light bulbs blown out in the bedrooms. I expect a certain standard when I go on vacation. Those standards were not met

We regret that these guests did not have a good experience at our resort. Our staff works very hard to rectify any issues a guest encounters including those identified in the review. We monitor guest requests regarding maintenance problems on a daily basis to make certain that any issues are resolved promptly. We are currently upgrading the interiors of all of our timeshare units to offer a higher quality guest experience. If these guests would consider returning in the future, I would be happy to meet with them at the beginning of their stay to assure they are completely satisfied with their unit.

As timeshare owners we've learned not to expect too much from the room & focus on the vacation, we don't spend much in the room anyway. I gave this resort a higher rating because it was very clean with big windows with spectacular views & it's convenient location to the slopes, restaurants etc. Our room was in Bldg E so perhaps there are updated rooms in another building but ours looked like nothing has been replaced since 1980 including the carpet. All of this could've been overlooked except for the crippling beds. We are 2 healthy, fit, 40ish adults with no injuries but the beds were so hard & uncomfortable we could not get a good night's sleep even after snowboarding all day & a few late night cocktails. We will not stay here again unless they update at least the bedding.

We are sorry these exchange guests found our beds to be hard and uncomfortable. We replaced all our bedding late last year with new pillow top mattress sets and have received favorable comments from guests. We will check all the mattress sets in E building to make certain there is not a problem. We are currently updating the interiors of our timeshare units and the carpet mentioned in the review is being replaced in the next three weeks. If guests have a problem with a mattress in their unit, we will do all we can to satisfy them including replacing the mattress if necessary. We hope these guests will return in the future to stay in one of our renovated units.
