A Stowe home is not complete if it doesn't have a mud room. Having a place to kick off your shoes, store your boots, hang your coat, and stash your gloves is critical in a four-season home. Cubbies, shelves, cabinets, and drawers keep the space organized so you can find the right boots when you need them. The real kicker is radiant heat that will dry all your wet shoes and clothing by morning. Plus, a mud room keeps the mud (only found in Vermont during mud season) confined to one space.
