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!
