The owners Mary Anne and George we're so accommodating to our every need. Their B&B is just amazing in so many ways. Great location to the main town and only 10 mins away from the mountain. Breakfast every morning was so fantastic I always woke up looking forward to enjoying it. George makes every breakfast so yummy and delicious and we enjoed our morning chats with Mary Ann. This place is truly a home away from home. Cozy atmosphere, great views and so clean. We will definitely be coming back the the Brass Lantern Inn!

Welcome to your home away from home!

We had a wonderful stay last April at the Brass Lantern, and I was actually looking to book another stay with them and realized that I had never left a review. George and Mary Anne are wonderful, and very attentive. Rooms were immaculately clean, and I loved the fireplace (we stayed in spruce peak) It also has a small flat screen TV even though the room does not list that as an amenity. I consider myself quite the foodie/cook and George's breakfasts were so delicious, especially his homefries and quiche! I would highly recommend Brass Lantern for a well priced, cozy option in Stowe. All of the amenities of an inn, without feeling stuffy or too ornate!

What a find!

Gracious hosts, yummy breakfast, amazing view of the mountain from the deck, clean rooms, super comfy bed, and location is perfect to get to everything in Stowe.

Excellent B&B, Wonderful Hosts

5 on June 29, 2012

We spent three nights at the Brass Lantern Inn at the end of May 2012 and had a wonderful time. George and May Anne were perfect hosts, and they pay attention to all of the little details that make a guest feel at home. The Inn is clean, well maintained and very comfortable. Breakfast was superb. We were there only three days but felt like we were leaving close friends when we checked out. George and Mary Anne, and their family, are awesome. We feel it is the best B&B we have stayed at. Thanks for a great experience. Ken & Pam

Charming Inn in a Good Location

We felt totally at home here. George and Mary-Ann are superb hosts and full of fun – I think I got teased for two days about managing to find a free parking place in Burlington when we went there for a trip! Mary-Ann even produced excellent breakfasts and even managed to arrange a continental style breakfast for us when we asked for it – just about the only inn in New England that managed this one! The Spruce Peak room we had was spacious and comfortable with windows on three sides and great views. This really is one of the best inns we have stayed at in the US – and we have stayed in many good ones. The inn is spacious, comfortable, well-equipped and has great views. Most of all though it is George and Mary Ann that make it special. Highly recommended

our Wonderful stay

My fiance and I wanted to get away, but didn't have the money to fly. We are from Massachusetts so Stowe was a perfect answer for us. The inn keeper was very sweet and pleasant. The breakfast was always amazing. Our room was clean and cozy. The fireplace kept it romantic. We especially loved the hot tub... outside, at night with mountain views. There was a beautiful outdoor space in the back with healthy green grass where we played catch and watch the sunset. We had an amazing vacation.

Great Place To stay

A Cozy Retreat

4.0 on September 06, 2008

My best friend and I were both on vacation, and our destination was going to be Stow, Vermont. Next was finding a nice place for our two night stay. I searched the internet, for bed and breakfasts, and came across the Brass Lantern Inn. It looked charming, so we called and spoke with Nancy, the Inn Keeper. She was extremely friendly from the get go. We originally chose a room with two beds, but when we arrived, we were able to change our room to a sunnier room, with its own fireplace, a big queen, and a day bed. We were told we were the only ones staying there the two nights we had booked..April 30th, and May 1st. How nice, having this beautiful B&B all to ourselves. Nancy was most accomodating...highlighting areas of interest for us on maps, telling us about local haunts ( we like to look for ghosts), making homemade cookies, and a breakfast to die for. The weather couldn't have been nicer too. We came up at the perfect time..not too Hot yet or too cold, although we did experience some snow flakes going for a ride to the base of the mountain. Overall, I would most definately stay at the Brass Lantern Inn again, and would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in a quaint, clean, and safe B&B. It was exactly waht you think of, when you think of a country B&B...complete with free internet, TV ( if you have time to watch it), peace and quiet, and friendly Inn Keepers. I am looking forward to my next stay there.

Very pleasant and clean B & B

4.6 on April 22, 2008

The Brass Lantern Inn proved to be a most pleasant stay for my husband and myself. Nancy was warm and welcoming. Cookies and coffee were laid out when we arrived. Our first impression was that the B&B was immaculately clean throughout! Also our room had extras that other inns do not offer - two wing chairs rather than the usual one, two luggage racks for our suitcases rather than the usual one, high quality soaps and shampoos. During breakfast we also feasted on spectacular views of the mountains. We would definitely come back!
