vacation rental description

Escape to this spectacular estate, complete with panoramic views of Smugglers Notch! The best of both worlds includes the privacy of 12 acres atop a long private drive and the convenience of close proximity to Smugglers Notch Resort (2/10ths of a mile across the road to be exact). Smuggs was voted #1 Ski Resort in the East by SKI magazine in 2014 and has been voted the #1 Family Resort for 15 years in a row.

A true gem! There are three homes on the property. The primary home is a side-by-side chalet with a four-bedroom and five-bedroom unit each comprised of three floors of finished living space (2,700 square feet). The views from the chalet units are unmatched; see skiers on the trails in plain sight. The third is a more basic two-bedroom ranch home with a finished basement with bar and attached garage. The unique layout of the estate allows for small or large groups. Stay in one home or rent all three and have the whole property for your group’s enjoyment!

- Private sauna in each chalet

-Satellite TV, high speed internet, and Wifi

-Wood-burning fireplace in each chalet

-Full size washer/dryer

traveler reviews for this smugglers notch estate rental

We can't wait to come back in winter!

Review submitted: August 19, 2014   Date of arrival: August 11, 2014

Our large family with kids of various ages stayed at Sterling House last week-from August 10 to August 15. From the moment we arrived, we were impressed with this place and what it had to offer!

The space around the house looked clean and the grass was neatly trimmed. As we took a walk around, we discovered that the swimming pool was safely fenced and its water was clear and warm. Playing at the tennis court was another opportunity for the kids to be safe and have fun.

The interior of the house was also well designed and super clean. The kitchen was spotless and fully stocked, with the brand new refrigerator and dishwasher. We cooked dinner and had barbecue, since the grill was provided at the porch. In the evening we made s'mores and gathered together in this cozy living room. The large dinning room table had plenty of space for us to eat inside and simultaneously enjoy the spectacular views this place has to offer. The large patio was also an opportunity for us to enjoy our morning coffee while looking at the beautiful scenery. All the rooms were spacious, clean and stocked with clean linens and towels.

The places around have to offer a variety of activities for grown ups and kids. The famous Smuggler's Notch Resort is located right across the street. We also visited 158 Main Restaurant & Bakery, located 5 minutes away---we highly recommend its Blueberry Pancakes and exceptional Eggs Benedict.
As a mother of 6 year old, 4 year old and a 3 month old baby, I was primarily concerned with safety of my kids and cleanliness I was going to find here. I might say that my expectations were exceeded and we enjoyed our stay. My older nieces and nephews had fun and were impressed with this place as much as their parents were.

I highly recommended this place to my friends and more family. We can't wait to come back here during the winter time and enjoy the fire place and the sauna.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Nice place, poorly managed

Review submitted: August 7, 2014   Date of arrival: July 3, 2014

Upon arrival, the place looked very promising, as shown in the pictures. It offered us lots of privacy and space.

However, there were some issues we faced during the stay that ranged from inconveniences to serious health & safety risks:

1) Minor Issues:
Leaky kitchen faucet (they'd placed a container to catch the dripping water, which overflowed and got the floor wet). The basements were damp and smelly. There were no pool toys for the kids, while their house description says "children welcome".

2) Serious Issues:
-The smoke detector kept going off even if we boiled water. Nick, the owner, admitted he was aware of this and said he had them fixed, but hadn't checked. He just told us to disconnect it.

3) VERY serious Issues:
-The garbage dumpsters close to the chalets were not emptied and bears raided them every night. Nick hadn't checked this out so we weren't aware until we saw the mess created by the bears. Luckily, none of us blundered into a bear.
-There were mouse droppings in the utensils drawer, which we discovered the night before we left. Disgusting! Mouse droppings can contaminate the air and can cause severe and sometimes fatal respiratory issues. WE WERE IN THIS ENVIRONMENT FOR ALMOST 3 DAYS. I am asthmatic and at higher risk for pulmonary issues. One of the main illnesses caused by rodent feces: hantavirus. Please research this illness, since I am not allowed to post links in my review.

After the trip, I spoke with Nick about our issues. He was only willing to refund the small cleaning fee. This, to me, was just not enough. No garbage cleanup, bears coming to the house because of it, and mouse droppings in the drawers! I tried to amicably resolve our displeasure with him by asking for a refund of 20% of our rental, which I thought was fair compensation for the mess we endured and the unnecessary risks he put us in. He chose to not compensate us any further.

It's a nice property, no doubt. But it's unhealthy to stay in and not managed well. My review is meant to help you make a better decision on where to stay. Given that these owners don't seem to care about the health or satisfaction of their guests, I suggest checking out the tons of beautiful resorts in the area (everything is close by) that seem much cleaner and organized.

Fabulous family vacation spot!!

Review submitted: August 4, 2014   Date of arrival: July 21, 2014

My family and I stayed here for a week in July 2014. We rented both sides, there were about 25 of us. It was so much fun. The scenery was fantastic and the road getting there from Stowe is one I will never forget. So scenic. Having my whole family together in one place was worth every penny and then some. I just couldn’t imagine having to stay in a hotel and having separate rooms. There were plenty of dishes and cooking utensils, bath towels, and bedding. We did have a slight problem, but I called Nick and he resolved it almost immediately. If we’re ever heading up to Vermont again, this is the only place I want to stay. Thank you Nick and Christina!!
