If you are looking for modern efficient rooms then look elsewhere.. this is a simple older hotel with all the character and personality one would expect from a classic Vermont Ski Inn…. Our hosts (The Grimes) were friendly and courteous and the support staff were great. Our reservations were taken well ahead of time for the few days over Christmas by Molly who went out of her way to make sure we had just the right room, she checked with us over our stay to make sure everything was just right…. Great follow-up!
As mentioned, the rooms are nothing special but they are clean and the view we had of Mount Mansfield was perfect. The lounges in the main area of the hotel are very comfortable and there are several wood fireplaces where you can either get close and personal with your partner or mingle with the other patrons. The rooms are small and our room had a canopy bed... i would take the canopy down to give it a larger feel and the beds could use some upgrading.
Breakfast is included in your room rate and was a plentiful and very tasty buffet at Emily's downstairs… One of the servers of note was Zack who also worked in Coslin’s Pub. His personal attention and great attitude were very much appreciated by my wife and I during our stay.
If you are staying during the winter months then a sleigh ride is a must.. a half hour (roughly) sleigh ride thru the property while cuddled up in the back of an open cutter was perfect for our Christmas night.. a special shout out to the guys running the sleigh and of course to our horse DOC.. a beautiful Belgian workhorse.

- The Stowehof Inn is one of the last classic alpine inns in ski country. Steeped in classic decor and the site of Alan Alda's movie "Four Seasons", the inn represents the eclectic beginnings of America's love affair with Austrian alpine design and skiing. Built in the late 40's the Stowehof sits on a 30 acre estate looking up on the ski trails of the Stowe Ski Resort. ... more less
