“The BEST Bed and Breakfast”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

This is hands down the best place to stay. My wife and I were looking for a nice bed and breakfast in the Stowe area and decided on Stowe Meadows. The best decision we've ever made. Stowe Meadows is located just a few miles outside of town. The property is gorgeous. The trees were turning to their fall colors at the time. We loved being far enough away from town that we could relax but still being close enough to drive in for the day and shop. Stowe Meadows is also only about 30 minutes from Burlington.

The house itself is beautiful. Every room has its own bathroom, which was very important for us when choosing a place to stay. Our room was extremely comfortable and relaxing and the bathroom was more than enough room for two people. Our room had a great view of the surrounding mountains and trees. In the evenings we watched television and read in the common room. Erich lit the fireplace and brought us refreshments. Very relaxing after longs days of shopping and hiking.

In the mornings Caroline and Erich prepared fantastic breakfasts. These are not your typical breakfasts. These are filling and healthy! Plan on eating a late lunch because breakfast is very hearty and lasts you much of the day. They also introduced us to some new and very tasty foods. We really enjoyed our conversations with Caroline and Erich over breakfast and coffee. They really make you feel like you are part of their family.

Throughout our entire stay, Caroline and Erich went above and beyond to make us feel at home. Before we left for the day they gave us tips on where to go, what to see, etc. They also offered numerous times to make reservations to any local restaurants that we wanted to eat at for supper. When we returned from a long day, our bed was made, bathroom cleaned, fresh towels, snacks in the room, etc. Everything was in perfect order just like the first day we arrived.

I can't speak highly enough about Stowe Meadows and Caroline and Erich. We stayed three nights. If our travel plans had allowed, we would have stayed the entire week. We will absolutely be returning to Stowe Meadows. We have never felt more comfortable or more at home. We truly miss our time spent at Stowe Meadows and our conversations with Caroline and Erich. We look forward to our next visit!

Thank you for the wonderful memories!

This was our second time at Stowe Meadows and our feelings haven't changed. Caroline and Erich are perfect hosts!! They will help make your stay as busy or laid back as you want. The gourmet breakfasts are always interesting and delicious and both Caroline and Erich are great in the kitchen. We stayed in a different room this time and again it did not disappoint. Luxurious bedding, large bathroom with wonderful oatmeal soap in the shape of pine trees. There's always a basket of snacks in your room as well as the offer of snacks as you sit with the hosts and other guests to chat. Their home is your home!! They are well versed in what to do and where to dine in the area and they will not steer you wrong. We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at Michael's on the Hill. They do not rush you and the food is excellent!!
We are looking forward to our next visit with our "friends"!!

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!

Having been to Stowe quite a few times over the years, we were looking for a new lodging option and opted for a B&B. Our plan was to spend the few days in Vermont actively enjoying being outdoors - hiking mostly. As this was our priority, being right in town was not critical to us once we learned of Stowe Meadows which is just a short drive outside of town (10+ minutes). Once we arrived at Stowe Meadows, and experienced a beautiful home, wonderful accomodations, relaxing environment, declicious 5 star breakfasts and wonderful hosts, we were thrilled we made the decision to stay at Stowe Meadows. We look forward to returning with friends in the future.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong! Enjoy the view.

We recently chose Stowe Meadows based largely on previous reviews. Having never been to the area we were very pleasantly surprised. We actually appreciated the fact that the lodge was off the beaten path of downtown. Loved being able to turn off the main road, put the windows down and smell the woods. The color was spectacular this time of year and the views from the lodge breathtaking. Accommodations were first rate, clean, quiet, beautifully furnished. Though there were other guests, we felt as though we had the house to ourselves. Our host Caroline was amazing! - she knew just what to recommend for our limited time, even making dinner reservations for us at Michael's On The Hill in town. We capped off our stay with an amazing gourmet breakfast the following morning prepared by Caroline and some good conversation at the table with another couple. We are definitely foodies and I'm hoping to prepare a meal alongside Caroiline in that beautiful kitchen next time around. Unfortunately we weren't able to meet Caroline's husband Erich but, possibly in the future as we will definitely return!. Highly recommended

Room Tip: We happened to have a room with a King sized bed (though we forgot to ask about this when making the...

We spent 4 nights at Stowe Meadows last weekend. We are not B&B people but based on the reviews and Stowe Meadows internet site, we decided to give it a try. We were thrilled with our choice! Stowe Meadows is everything they claim to be and more! The setting is truly spectacular, the home beautiful, our bedroom very private (Alpine Suite) and extremely comfortable and the breakfasts....well what can I say about the breakfasts....Caroline and Erich outdid themselves, we couldn't wait to see what they would serve each morning.

We just spent three nights at Stowe Meadows, choosing to stay there after having read the delighted reviews... and what more can we say: It's all true! The lodge itself is incredible, with beautiful views of the mountains and a relaxed, cozy, and unique atmosphere... The surroundings are soothingly peaceful... as has been said over and over again, the hosts, Caroline and Erich (as well as their adorable three year-old, Helena) are the best part of it all... They are genuinely welcoming, extremely helpful, not to mention interesting and fun... Attention is paid to every possible detail... Breakfasts are delicious, plentiful (and healthy !), and if you're not a very big eater, you won't be needing lunch... We stayed in the very comfortable "Alpine Suite" with a perfect king size bed, a huge bathroom, and all the amenities one might need... The weather was gorgeous during our stay, so we went bicycling and hiking, but I can well imagine spending a great time simply staying at the Lodge and enjoying it... There are good restaurants, nice shops, and lots to do and see (Caroline and Erich can guide you...). All in all, a real gem !

Room Tip: The Alpine suite is large, the view is beautiful, the bed very comfortable, and the two-sink bathroo...
