Loved our 3-night stay at Stowehof during our family vacation this past August. We had perfect weather for the pool which was a but cold, but very clean. The pool deck and hotel look out over the valley with Mt. Mansfield towering opposite. The grounds were immaculate.
The hotel is dated and that is the charm. The place is like one giant cottage with all the homey feel of a place that has been well-loved for many years. The bookshelf, knick-knacks and eclectic decorations all add to the charm. The dining room has a great view. Relaxing in the common area and game nook were favourites of ours. Loved the bookshelf stocked with old classics and odd finds.
Our room had a king and a pull-out for our 2 girls. The king was super comfortable, the pullout was okay. Small flatscreen in the room. Seemed like there had been a sale on mirrors - several surfaces were covered with them - all part of the funky decor. We had a patio door on the ground floor - just walk out to the pool. Lovely cool mountain air at night and super quiet. The bathroom was a decent size. Everything was newly painted and looked very clean.
The desk staff were very helpful, with the one exception that we had asked for an early check-out and been told it was no problem. In the morning no one was on the desk. Thankfully the lady who had helped us secure an additional night (can't remember her name, should have written it down) had come in early to do some other work and checked us out. Thanks!
The one disappointment was that the hot tub seemed neglected. It wasn't hot and one of the jets was broken. It wasn't a huge deal, but it would have been nice after hiking to the summit of the mountain!
Really loved this place and would consider a winter visit to do some skiing. Super cozy and a great spot for family or for a couples getaway.
