Our Guest House in Stowe, Vermont

9 July 2019

Birch Hill in winter, a European inspired retreat in Stowe, Vermont.

Cent Dix Sept, our vacation rental property in Stowe, Vermont, is available for vacation rental on a short  term or seasonal basis.  Designed in 2007 and built in 2008, it offers three floors of beautifully furnished comfort and, unfortunately, is not dog friendly.  It is an allergen-free environment outfitted exclusively with natural fibers, leather, wood, glass and metal.  Inspired by the Mountain Cabins of the Stowe Mountain Resort, the house offers 2800 square feet of living space and easy access to Stowe’s historic village, restaurants, brew pubs and magnificent outdoor adventures.

Previously offered through Homeaway and VRBO, we now prefer to work directly with our vacation rental clients.

The house can be rented as a 1BR, 2BR or 3BR property, all en suite with gorgeous glass showers, wall mounted toilets, high ceilings, Tiger and Bird’s Eye Maple floors – and an easy walk to The Harvest Market and the Mountain Road.

Originally designed by me as my retirement home, I realized that my lifestyle included too many dogs for a posh retreat, especially with the hardwood floors.  So, I designed and built a different house that is more appropriate for my current lifestyle.  Living at Birch Hill will have to wait!

The house features two staircases, so that total privacy can be enjoyed on the master floor upstairs, while other family members, guests or friends can enjoy the living level or lower level with two bedroom suites and second living room.

Cent Dix Sept is located just one mile up the Mountain Road from the historic village of Stowe.  My residence is located nearby, with the Rec Path connecting the two.  It’s an easy 1.5 mile walk from one to the other – so, when I’m at my wit’s end with the girls?  I run to Birch Hill, where it is always quiet and clean.  This is where we had our Westminster party on 11 February 2019, the event at which Questa earned the Award of Merit ribbon and medal.  Champagne was served and great fun was had by all!

Wickets We love our wicket by Double Ring Kuvasz and intend to soon introduce one of our own that will be wall mounted.

Whelping Box Our whelping box is modeled after my original whelping box that was gifted to me by a retired breeder.  Our Kensington whelping box features a height extender that will buy you another week, before puppies can escape out of the box.  Our puppies go from the height extended whelping box right into a wire play pen, so that their crate training can begin at five weeks of age.

Boarding  We welcome any Kensington Tibetan Terrier for boarding in Stowe, Vermont, whether for long or short term.  Pick up/Drop off arrangements can often be made in mutually convenient New Hampshire or Massachusetts locations.  Our new Stowe house has two wings and three garage bays, so that dogs and bitches can play together or be separated, depending upon each individual situation.  Soon, the basement will be finished and built out for overnight summer accommodation in double cage banks with access to a third kitchen, full bath and large play area.
