We booked the Arbor Inn based on the other reviews, and it basically lived up to what was said previously. Michael and Cody are wonderful hosts, the breakfasts are delicious and filling. The location is great no matter what you plan to do in Stowe (which isn't much in summer!). The hot tub is really nice - our niece loved it! We had a problem with the shower, told Michael at breakfast, and it was taken care of within a few hours - surprisingly quick service compared to many places we've stayed.
The room, though very clean, was small and stuffy, in need of updating. The carpeting really needs to be replaced. The AC struggled to keep the temperature at a comfortable level, even at night. And my biggest complaint is that the sheets were 65/35 cotton/polyester - it's been many years since I've slept on anything other than 100% cotton sheets, and these just felt strange and uncomfortable to me. It's just the wrong thing to skimp on in a B&B.
Overall, we'd stay here again if we ever return to Stowe, because it was excellent value compared to other Stowe accommodations. It's often the owners that determine whether your stay at a B&B will be pleasant, and Michael and Cody are the perfect hosts: warm, personable, great to talk to, and responsive to problems. If they would just do a little more updating on the rooms and get better sheets, this place would be perfect!
