Brass Lantern Inn
Ranked #2 of 22 Stowe B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Had a very good time in Stowe and a great stay at the Brass Lantern Inn. The inn was full so we managed a small room for two nights and a bigger room for two more nights. The second room was perfect. It had a mini gas fireplace in the design of a wooden stove. We put our ski boots out and enjoyed a brandy by the fire. The in keepers were the highlight of our stay. They were so welcoming and friendly while at the same time gave us space for privacy. We loved our generous breakfasts and very much enjoyed afternoon tea with cookies. The hot tub was also a well enjoyed feature après ski with only one suggestion. It would have been nice to have a towel rack there. We just brushed the snow off some chairs instead. Next visit I'll pack a bath robe and slippers. Overall a great stay.

Thank you for your kind words and acknowledgement of our efforts to provide you with exceptional service. We especially appreciate your noted highlight of us, the Innkeepers!

You were also very kind to accommodate our availbility calendar during the Christmas/New Year's week by shifting rooms with your stay. Most of our rooms for this week were booked by mid-summer but you were gracious enough to fill in some of our vacancies. Our various room sizes and associated amenities allow us to reach a larger segment of travelers - some with budget or other travel consideration(s) beyond just room size.

And what a great idea, having a towel rack outside at the hot tub. We have and as you note had a side table and chairs on deck for these towels but a rack on the wall under the roof overhang is a much better idea for holding your towels. Brilliant idea, especially for its simplicity! Thank you very much for sharing that comment!

We were so rewarded to read that you felt so comfortable in our B&B. As a small, intimately scaled B&B we feel that we have the best opportunity to dedicate ourselves to the level of service you encountered, expected and hopefully even a bit more than expected. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other considering a stay here.

Kindest Regards,
Mary Anne and George

The Brass Lantern was a wonderful Christmas home away from home. Our family (5) enjoyed much of what Stowe has to offer. Mary Ann and George are perfect Innkeepers. George makes the best breakfasts. Our room had a beautiful view of Mt. Mansfield and it was very comfortable with plenty of room for us to all gather around the fireplace to open our presents. The "kids" had the room across the hall so we were all close. And we were lucky to have just enough snow for a beautiful white Christmas. We would certainly return to the Brass Lantern and recommend it to anyone who wants a great B&B experience.

My husband and are from Brazil and we wanted to go to Vermont to enjoy a few days of winter. We chose the Brass Lantern Inn after seeing internet reviews. The inn greatly exceeded our expectations and the owners, Mary Anne and George, are the perfect hosts! We were there for 5 nights and had an awesome time! The property is beautiful and very well kept; our room was beautiful, comfortable and cozy. All amenities, towels, sheets, etc. were top quality. As for breakfast prepared by George, they were the best! I thought he was a professional chef. In the evenings there was always fresh baked cookies by Mary Anne. They made us feel at home from the start and gave us great tips on where to go in the area. I felt like moving in! If you are ever in Stowe don't even think of staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: We stayed in a corner suite on the second floor, with a mountain view. Great room!

Thank you for your extended stay, sharing stories at the breakfast table, planning your day's excursion, and the follow-up de-briefing with tea and cookies. And, thank you for bringing so much warmth and personality and music to our Inn. We play Paulo Andre's music for our guests during breakfast - perfect for that setting and just beautiful music. Thank you, thank you to our Brazilian Friends!

My sister and I had the most wonderful stay at the Brass Lantern with George and Mary Anne. We went to Stowe for just one night (wish we could have stayed longer!). What a beautiful property and Inn. After a great ski day, we took advantage of the fantastic hot tub with the even more fantastic view of the mountain. George and Mary Anne were the perfect hosts. They recommended a great dinner spot and made us feel right at home (we loved the tea and cookies before bed). At the same time, they gave us the privacy and space we wanted for a relaxing sister ski trip. They really went above and beyond our expectations. The room was very spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious. I will send all my friends and family in the direction of the Brass Lantern when they visit Stowe. Make this your Vermont home!

Room Tip: We stayed in a room #8- very warm and quiet, with 2 double beds.

We love the Brass Lantern Inn. Warm, cozy, relaxing. Absolutely amazing breakfasts. Very reasonably priced. And the owners, Maryann and George always treat us like family. (The kind of family that loves you, not the kind that drives you nuts.) If you're going to Stowe it's the place to stay.

Room Tip: There are rooms for every price range however, the place is popular so book as far in advance as you...

From the moment we arrived and throughout the entire weekend Mary Anne and George made us feel right at home. They had great recommendations for activities and restaurants in the area. Our room had a fantastic view of Mt. Mansfield, the breakfast both mornings was delicious, and the fire was cozy when the temperatures dropped! Would definitely stay here again if we ever find ourselves back in Stowe!

Room Tip: The Sugarloaf room is perfect for two and has a great view of Mt. Mansfield.

Thank you so much for the kind words. We very much appreciate your recognition of our efforts to make you feel welcomed and at home. Our favorite time of the day now that winter has set in is to meet with our guests around the fireplace in the main living room. So glad you had a great time and we look forward to having you back again.
