Standing right alongside a busy roadway, The Gables has been in operation for many years. It is a warren of narrow corridors and simple rooms, common spaces with well-worn sofas and chairs. In all, like Topsy, it just grew. The thin, uninsulated walls made everyone's comings and goings on the floor above us a constant part of our one-night stay;... More

We always visit Stowe at least once every summer and try to have breakfast at the Gables on the front porch. My wife and I love Stowe -breakfast at the Gables is always a very enjoyable and relaxing experience. There is always a mixture of couples, families, and groups especially during the summer months. Highly recommend making a reservation, especially... More

Randy is a great host with good recommendations, friendly staff, breakfast is delicious. Although the house is a little bit older you have everything you need. Nice experience, would recommend this place.

We stopped here on our 2,500 mile road trip of New England last fall (Autumn) Very convenient for visiting the area. We were very well looked after by Randy and staff thank you. We had a spacious, cosy room on the ground floor. Breakfast is great.

The host is great, I have to agree. The inn is outdated, looks like it is frozen on the 50's. Kitchen is not the cleanest I have seen and I have to disagree about so many comments about how great the breakfast is: to me it is really average. The bedroom and bathroom are really small but clean. It's not... More

From the moment we arrived at The Gables Inn and were greeted by Randy, we were made to feel like more than just guests. We arrived quite late but were still greeted with a warm smile and an abundant knowledge of where we could still get food if we were hungry. We were very kindly upgraded to a bigger room... More

The previous reviews mentioned that the inn is a bit dated. They are correct but you need to balance that off with a great inn keeper, great location and an awesome breakfast. Randy the inn keeper is a great guy and could not do enough for us. The hotel is directly across the road from the Stowe recreational trail. Great... More

Wow! This room had filthy carpet. The bedspread, flower wreath and picture hanging on the wall looked like they were from the 80's. None of the towels, bathmat, or shower curtain in the bathroom matched. They were all old as well. My husband, who is 6 ft. could hardly fit into the shower and turn around. The post know kept...

The inn is a great place to stay: great breakfast, very friendly owner, comfortable mattresses and relaxing hot tub after long and cold day of skiing, good location in Stowe.. Definitely recommend to stay here!

The room was small, but the ambiance of an old inn in Vermont meant it didn't matter a bit. Randy was friendly, helped lug luggage upstairs and sent us to a fantastic pizza place nearby for wonderful dinner. But breakfast sent this stay over the top. So many choices, not just humdrum. Good job, Randy!
