“One big family atmosphere”
Reviewed March 4, 2011

We stayed with Randy & Annette for our ski trip to Stowe. It was perfect. So much nicer than staying in a bland hotel with no atmosphere. Arriving at the Gables Inn, you are sure to be greeted by Yogi, who my girls adored. The atmosphere is great and you instantly feel like one of the family. We stayed in one of the Carriage House rooms which was perfect for us; nice and spacious and a comfy bed. Breakfast was excellent, especially the specials which are some of the most imaginative choices I've seen anywhere in my broad experience of American diners - my favourite was the smoked salmon risotto! The soup, hot cider and cake in the afternoon was a perfect way to relax after a day's skiing and it's lovely to be able to share your days adventures with the other residents and Randy.
Stowe is a lovely town and the Gables Inn is placed nicely within it to give easy reach to all the restaurants and bars and also to the ski slopes. I had originally thought we might need to drive to other resorts, but we were more than happy with the selection of ski runs available during our 5 day stay.
When we return to Stowe we will definitely be returning to the Gables Inn, thank you!

WOW great place to stay. The staff or owners make it like your own home, you sit and lounge around the fire place and watch TV. they let you use their own kitchen. Take the $5 omelette it's juicy, thick and very tasty.

I grew up in Vermont and the Gables Inn reminds me of my Grandma's home. After a day on the slopes we looked forward to Randy's hot cider, warm fire and soup ( Although my gumbo is better :>) )..... My wife and I have been a guest of the Inn three times now and we will be back for a forth...... I JUST REALLY LIKE THIS PLACE!!!!!!!

I was happily surprised at our stay at Gables over New Years holiday weekend. Our room was modest but clean and the staff was very friendly. The Inn offers delicious soup and hot cider every afternoon and has by far the best breakfast in town (the stuffed french toast is out of this world). We stayed for 2 nights and then 1 night at TopNotch with the intention of making use of their nordic ski package. Although the stay at Top Notch was nice with a great spa and would have been worthwhile had the snow conditions been okay to nordic ski, my husband and i are working through multiple miscellaneous charges to our credit card from Top Notch. Next time we'll just stick with The Gables for the entire time and save ourselves the hassle.

We travel to Stowe every year and The Gables Inn is one of our two favorite places to stay. We just got back from a nice winter get-away weekend in which we stayed at The Gables. We were not disappointed. The Innkeepers take pride in their Inn and work hard to make sure every person feels welcome and comfortable. This Inn is on the Mountain Road and is close to many local attractions. We stayed in one of the Carriage House rooms which are detached from the main house and are spacious for 2 people. We found everything to be clean, a nice comfortable bed, new carpeting, firewood stacked in the room, cable tv, and a jacuzzi bath. It's great to sit in the main living room and converse with the varied people staying there - many are repeat customers and are eager to give their recommendations on the many local attractions. A review of The Gables Inn cannot be complete without the two-thumbs way up recommendation of their breakfast! The Gables serves the absolute BEST breakfast in Stowe! If you are looking for a friendly, value-minded place to stay, I recommend you look into The Gables Inn.

The room was cozy and clean. The owners were truly friendly and engaging. And yes, the legendary breakfast was delicious. Also, the coffee was great. We were on a ski trip so a big breakfast was key. Hanging out in the early evening by the fire, watching Jeopardy, talking to the owners--who were very helpful with restaurant advice--and other guests made it a better than usual B and B experience. We will definitely stay there again.

We've stayed at Gables Inn previously, during the ski season, and returned for a brief visit this fall. The proprietors are very welcoming and friendly (including Yogi, their Golden Retriever.) After a day sightseeing, shopping, or on the slopes, you can sit by the rustic hearth and relax. Their breakfasts are the best that Stowe has to offer, a great way to start the day.
If you are seeking a clean, comfortable Inn that exudes warmth and a rustic charm, I strongly recommend the Gables Inn. Comfortable and clean, with its own character and a good value. What else could anyone want?
