My husband and I stayed here last weekend & enjoyed every part of our stay. The hosts are delightful and friendly; the breakfast is amazing and from the local area; and the inn is adorable! The views from the breakfast room and the hot tub are amazingly stunning - the mountains are gorgeous! We truly enjoyed every aspect our our stay and highly recommended this B&B to everyone.

Thank you very much for your kind words on our behalf. And aren’t those views of Mt. Mansfield great? Those stunning views confirmed our plans to purchase this great B&B several years ago.

We also appreciate your acknowledgement of our spirit and energy in managing our B&B/Home Away from Home! Thanks for the recommendation and your time here.

Kindest Regards,
Mary Anne and George

What a great stay in Stowe! this is a charming and cozy Inn with fantastic innkeepers, delicious breakfasts, and all the amenities one could hope for. The rooms are well decorated, the gas-fired Vermont stove kept the room toasty, and the whirlpool tubs are great after a day on the mountain. The common area with roaring fireplace is great to socialize with guests or plan the next day's adventure. I'd highly recommend this lodging option.

Thank you for your stay and for the time to share your thoughts and comments regarding our Inn. We are very fortunate to have this opportunity and hope the level of service is a reflection of how much we enjoy this lifestyle!

Thanks for the recommendation. These words are truly invaluable to our small, family owned and operated business.

My girlfriend and I reserved 3 nights midweek for Valentines. We were brought to this hotel by the strong reviews on tripadvisor and we must say that the B&B fully lived up to the reviews and then some. The owners are by far the most helpful, hospitable and kindest B&B owners we have ever met. The hotel itself has 9 quaint rooms, elegant dinning space, cozy living and seating areas and a great outdoor hot tub. Very very clean also. The breakfast is included with the room charge and is prepared by the owner, a variety of filling, generous proportioned and scrumptious breakfast items are available on a daily basis. These foods include frittatas, homemade muffins, etc. We stayed at the Mt. clarke a very quaint and private room with a lovely fireplace, its also located next to the door that leads to the outdoor hot tub. This place is a rare find, quaint, cute and cozy I encourage you to check it out!

Room Tip: Mt clark is next to outdoor hot tub!

I highly recommend the Brass Lantern Inn for a relaxing couple's get-away weekend in Stowe. We woke to a view of the sunrise reflecting a rosy hue off the slopes of Mt. Mansfield and the breakfasts are amazing!! We are now fans of waffles with local maple bacon ice cream and blueberry maple syrup -- and that was just one corner of the plate. The Sunday breakfast also included herbed scrambled eggs, sausage, and a fresh fruit yogurt parfait. Perfect start to a sunny day on our skis. Thank you Mary Anne and George for such a warm welcome and comfortable stay.

And thank you so much for your recent stay and taking the time to share your experience with others! We do go through the Maple Bacon Ice Cream....! And since we are up early preparing breakfast we get to share those views on those crystal clear sunrises. Magical moment and one I don't think I will ever tire of.

We sure hope to see you again. And while our winter season is amazing you should see this place in the summer!

Thanks again,

This was our second trip to the Brass Lantern Inn and I would not dream of staying anywhere else while visiting Stowe. This is not your typical inn--when you are here, you feel like you are home. And a big part of that is because of George & Mary Anne Lewis...the innkeepers and owners. They are the nicest, sweetest people you will ever meet. They make you feel welcome and love chatting with all of their guests as if they are long lost friends. My husband and I would sit by the fire every night before dinner and chat with George & Mary Anne as well as other guests. It was great! We stayed in the Sterling Mountain room which is right upstairs from the living room. Our room was very clean and had a beautiful, canopy bed and a gas fireplace. It has a little sitting area as well. It was very cozy & spacious. All common areas of the inn are kept very clean and welcoming. It's in a great location and only a 5 minute drive to the center of town. There is also a grocery store next door to the inn (sells alcohol too) which is very convenient. Breakfast is served every morning and you haven't had breakfast until you've had George's breakfast--DELICIOUS! Overall, this is a great place to stay whether you are coming for the weekend or the week. I can't say enough good things about it or George & Mary Anne.

Thank you for your return visit and review. You two feel like friends returning to town and we can't think of any better reward for our efforts than these return stays and of course your very kind words of recommendation.

We are fortunate to have a scale of business that allows us to have that time to share experiences with our guests. This opportunity, specifically, is why we chose to become Innkeepers. Your review is great to read as it helps confirm that we made the right call in changing directions in our lives (our "Chapter 2" has been a wonderful experience!!).

Thanks so much for adding so much warmth and kind spirit to our Inn during your stay. We enjoyed your visit immensely and know that others did as well. Hope to see you soon. Don't forget to take care of yourselves and take that vacation every once in awhile! Oh, and you both would make excellent Innkeepers!

Best Always,
George and Mary Anne

Just back from our second stay at the Brass Lantern Inn in Stowe and we cannot say enough about the Inn and its owners. The accommodations are clean and comfortable; our room had a gas fireplace and a view to the mountains. The breakfasts are great! The location is quite convenient and, even though located on Rt. 100, very quiet and peaceful. Recommend highly!

My wife and I have stayed at many B&Bs all over New England and the Brass Lantern Inn is one of our favorites ever! We felt like we were visiting close friends in Stowe! Some inns tend to be run only by employees but not here...George and Mary Anne are the owners and innkeepers and obviously love running the inn. From the moment we stepped in and met them, we knew we had made the right choice for our long weekend in Stowe. We stayed in the Mt. Mansfield room located on the 2nd floor. It was the largest room in the inn with a sectional couch, beautiful gas fireplace, small fridge and microwave. We also looked forward to the jacuzzi in the room after a long day skiing! We loved looking out the windows with a perfect view of Mt. Mansfield in the distance. The common rooms were warm and inviting as was the breakfast room where George served up delicious breakfasts each morning. The inn was spotless and was located just a short drive away from the center of town. But in the end, the innkeepers made our weekend perfect. They are two wonderful people who treat you like family. Thank you so much George and Mary Anne. Now that I have taught Viola how to ski, we hope to make the long drive up to Stowe often and visit our home away from home.

What a wonderful comment to read. Thank you for these comments and kind words. We really do love this business and lifestyle. Not sure how I/we could fake thatenjoyment of the day if we didn’t really enjoy it (even with some high school theatre background). Thanks for noticing our “efforts” for quality service and for letting others know of your experience. For our intimate, family owned, business your thoughtful comments are truly invaluable.

We are happy to claim the Brass Lantern Inn and the Mt. Mansfield Room as your home away from home (knowing of course we have made that claim to others who enjoyed their stay here as well…).

Great to hear Viola is now in the skiing family! We look forward to hosting you again soon and maybe next time we can all ski together!

Best,
George and Mary Anne
