Had the pleasure of staying here for the night when plans fell through. Checked in late at around 2300 and the owner was there to fetus comfortable. Check in was quick and easy. One thing I'd point out is that there is the Inn and they have motel type rooms which are not as nice. We stayed in the Inn... More

We decided to try the River house at the Stowe Inn Tavern tonight for a change of pace. The restaurant wasn't that busy on a Saturday night but it was refreshing not to have a noisy restaurant! It's also an off season in Stowe--so things aren't as busy as other times of the year. We could actually hear each other... More

We booked a two bed room in the carriage house, they were full sized beds. Arrived at 9:30 and the lights outside of the rooms were all off so that we had to get out of the car and walk the entire length to see our room number and find the door. The area was very dark and hard to... More

Visited Stowe in Oct 2013 and had excellent prime rib. Ten months later returned mouth watering to find the waiter/bartender was now the chef and there was not one bottle of booze at the bar. A bit disturbing .... Something is up in stowe.

The food was good, service was a bit slow, but we had no where else to be so we sat back and enjoyed each other's company, while the one waitress worked hard and stayed pleasant and friendly the whole time. The inn was hosting 2 murder mystery dinners (unusual for them to have 2 on one night) so the kitchen... More

The burger and french fries were my favorite dish. Next time going to try the Shepard's Pie. The bartender was funny.

My husband and I went to the River House restaurant recently and had SUCH a great time! Our server, Melissa, was a delight and very knowledgeable about the menu. I got the grilled chicken breast which was perfectly tender & moist, and came with bacon lentles which I hadn't had before, but now love. My husband opted for the arugala... More

This restaurant was so bad from start to finish it was actually funny. Our party of six who had a reservation were ignored for 20 minutes upon entering and then another 20 minutes when we sat down. Wine was poured into water glasses. They provided us cocktail napkins because they did not have any linens. Food was priced high and... More

We wanted somewhere near the main street and picked the Tavern besed on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The sign outside advertised the prime rib, so I gave it a go. Very nice, and cooked exactly as I wanted. The kids menuus were a little limited - it would be nice to have a kids selection based on smaller... More

The restaurant is really called The River House Restaurant, it is located in the Stowe Inn which in itself was a very nice inn. Our dining experience from salads to Irish coffee was wonderful and the best part wasn't even the wonderful food it was Edward our waiter. He displayed great manners and sincerely seemed to love being there. He... More
