My husband and I spent a week at Stowe Meadows during the first week of October (1st-5th) and loved every second! This was a special trip for us because my husband is currently serving a one year tour in Afghanistan and we picked Stowe Meadows as our place to spend part of his 14 day R&R. We both love the fall so we were looking for a quiet place nestled in the woods with gorgeous views….Stowe Meadows did not disappoint! It was romantic, peaceful, scenic and welcoming! We stayed in the Master suite with gorgeous views of the mountain and a private covered balcony. Breakfast was always a great treat and my husband couldn't eat enough cinnamon rolls…yes…they were that good! What made Stowe Meadows especially wonderful for us was the owner, Caroline! She made us feel like we were her main priority and ensuring a wonderful stay was her main goal! She was helpful in every way from booking dinner reservations, to helping my husband arrange a special surprise for me (although the rain forced us to rearrange our plans), to making a picnic lunch for our trip to the airport, she was always there to make sure everything was just right. By the time we left, Caroline felt more like a friend than an innkeeper and I believe that is what sets Stowe Meadows above the rest! We hope to return to Stowe Meadows in the future! Thanks for a wonderful and memorable trip and thanks for your support of our troops!
On a side note my husband and I did a balloon trip with Above Reality Balloons and loved it! The owner was very professional and had an extra little surprise for everyone when we landed. We also got massages at Stowe Village Massage and it was the best massages my husband and I ever had! It's kind of a "no frills" massage place (meaning you don't have the spa, robes and locker rooms) but it is also half the price of the resort spas in the area! If you are looking for a great massage and don't care about the "spa experience" then this is the place for you! Enjoy!
