Great location. The main building and lobby have recently been renovated and are modern and chic.Our room- less so. It was spacious but outdated and definitely in need of renovation. The bathroom was clean but smelled bad. Given the outdoorsy nature of Stowe, we just spent much of our time around the grounds and spent less time indoors. The dining area was a bit of a mess, likely temporarily, as the floor was being replaced (?) and covered with sheets of paper. the breakfast (included) however was fantastic- a wide range of cereal, fruit, bagels, pastries, which was much more than we expected. The indoor and outdoor pools are great and the grounds very quaint. We enjoyed our stay overall and it provided very good value for our money and we would definitely return, but elect a room in the newer main section..

very pleasantly surprised by the modern decor and amenities- wonderful public space in the lobby/breakfast room. only disappointment was that it wasn't open to us when we arrived in the early evening due to our april timing when everything in the area seems to be shut down. highly recommended!

The room was recently renovated and clean, bathroom was not renovated but was very clean and had plenty of hot water and water pressure (hard to come by in Stowe!) My only gripe is that the room is very dark during the day - not alot of natural light. Also, not a lot of outlets, so had to unplug lamps to charge cell phones. Not a big deal but a power strip would have been ideal. A little pricey, but would definitely stay here again considering the freshness of the room and proximity to the mountain.

We loved this place. Nice pool and game room for nighttime fun. Really close to everything in the town. Great price for the expensive vacation week. No complaints and would stay here again. Best part is that they allow dogs! never ate there so I just have that 5 stars.

What a lovely place ! We were very charmed by everything. I know that we'll be back again because it's near from everything at Stowe. The staff was really helpful in all our demands. Nice place to discover !

Great place to stay in Stowe! The surroundings are beautiful, the pools were wonderful, and the grounds were picture perfect! The staff was friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The best pancakes in town are across the street, and there is a market at the end of the drive with delicious food, drinks, craft beer and wine. :) We really could not have asked for a better location. This was our first visit, and we will be coming back!

Hotel is partially renovated; renovated sections really lovely and non-fully-renovated rooms have everything needed for comfort. Non-renovated rooms are good size, clean and bed very comfortable. Furniture older but fine. Sofa bed OK - not great. Pool and hot tub are fabulous; gorgeous outdoor view. Renovated lobby/bar/breakfast very nice. Two downsides to this property: 1) breakfast is really pathetic. Cellophane covered danish that you can buy really cheaply at the supermarket, bagels still in supermarket plastic bags, no oatmeal, cheap, sugary cereals (fruit loops, cinnamon toast crunch, etc) in single-serve plastic bowls, some fresh fruit (best part of this breakfast) and good coffee. We've traveled quite a bit and stayed everywhere from the Four Season's to the Super 8. This goes down as one of the worst breakfast offerings we've ever experienced. What's worse is that we believe it's intentional not to spend $'s or time on breakfast because the afternoon appetizers are quite elegant and tasty. So, the innkeepers clearly know what better quality is, but are choosing not to offer better quality at breakfast, which is key when heading out to ski. By simply adding some muffins from the Harvest Market, picking some better quality cereals and maybe adding oatmeal and a do-it yourself waffle iron (none of which are too expensive), things would improve greatly. 2) Walls are thin. This wasn't an issue for us until our last night when a group of kids were clearly staying above us. Jumping/stomping/voices could definitely be heard clearly. The first several nights we had quieter neighbors & didn't suffer at all from the thinner walls. So, it's the luck of the draw. All in all, we would definitely stay here again, though if we find somewhere around the same price point with a better breakfast, we'd probably try that. A good value for the money & very comfortable overall.

We packed 5 people into room 36 which is in the building with the indoor pool and away form the main building. It was nice with a little kitchen area, fireplace, 2 double beds, patio and enough space for an air matress on the floor. The "mirror top bar" that they claimed was in the room was not there, but thats ok. The pool area/hot tub was pretty nice. We partied hard the few nights we stayed there and had no problem, other than there was no large garbage can, or place to put all of our beer cans. Nice little bar across the street and the Rusty Nail is right down the street within walking distance. Good Location and good price, ill probably be back in the summer with my mountain bikes.
