I discovered how pricey Stowe, VT was when my sister-in-law suddenly decided to have her wedding at the Trapp Lodge in July. It is not unusual to shell out $200 plus a night for decent accomodations. Plus, to my dismay, there were few places that accepted large dogs. Luckily I found LJ's for about $80 a night (including pet fee). This place takes B&B coziness and crosses it with a motel private suite. The owners love dogs and have thoughtful touches to make traveling with your pooch a bit easier. For example, they have a large fenced off area to walk your dog, a water dish and a large bed for fido in your suite, and they have free pet accomodations while you are away policy. The last was especially useful when we left our dog there to go to the wedding. The free breakfast in the morning was the largest breakfast I have ever seen served at a hotel. There were quiches or frenchtoast, muffins, blueberry cobbler, fruit, cereal, bagels, several types of breads, juices, and cofee. Their cafe also served lunch. The prices for lunch were the cheapest I found in Stowe and it was so GOOD. There were even vegeterian dishes offered as well. The decor is not as aestically pleasing as the Trapp Lodge but LJ's rooms are as functional as the highest tier rooms at the Trapp Lodge. That is LJ's has AC, microwave, refrigerator, and dishes in their suites. The rooms are clean. The only caution I would give is that the showers have narrow openings. I personally think the shower's coma shape floor plan to be fascinating but if you are overweight it might be a tight squeeze initially to get it. You can't get better value for your $ anywhere else in Stowe.
