We came from Dallas. George and Mary Anne's hospitality matched and surpassed that we are so accustomed to in the south. We loved our warm, cozy rooms, and outstanding breakfast! They even were aware of our anniversary, leaving a sign on our door and Vermont Chocolate. We are grateful for their help on places to eat and things to do! They were terrific, and would stay again!

It was our pleasure to host you and so grateful for this opportunity and your support of our dream of a lifestyle.

Had a most lovely time staying with Mary Anne and George! They were lovely and we met the nicest guests. We skied all day, slept soundly at night, and then woke up to a great breakfast :D We didn't have a car and it was a short walk into Stowe (which was so pretty) and then we took the Mountain Road bus up to the resort to ski and Ubered/Lyfted to get to Von Trapp and the airport. I was traveling with 3 friends and we would go back in a heartbeat! A great way to spend New Years.

And what an absolute delight it was for us to host you and your "FRIENDS!!" ;-) Of the many perks of this position in life, the opportunity to cross paths with such warm and friendly people like you and your group is by far the best of everything we could have even hoped for.

We will never forget your very kind gesture of presenting us with an anniversary card and roses within minutes of learning that we were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary!! Truly, a very, very special moment for us indeed and can't explain thoroughly how touched we were by this gift.

And thank you for this gift of a review, truly appreciated and critical to the sustainability of our dream of a lifestyle.

Happy 2020 and look forward to welcoming you and your friends whenever the opportunity presents itself again.

Warmly,
George and Mary Anne

We enjoyed our week at the Brass Lantern. George and Mary Anne are wonderful hosts. The breakfast dishes are delicious and filling. While in Stowe we skied, went on a back country snowmobile tour and tried ice fishing. Mary Anne is very helpful with the local area. The Inn is walking distance to a grocery store. Also, a special thank you to Patrick for his souvenir cards & tea. We will stay here again. Recommend you do the same! Thanks again for an amazing week!!!

The opportunity to be of service is a special reward for us and so nice to know that our efforts to provide you with a positively memorable stay were so warmly received.

We do look forward to welcoming you back to Stowe.

Happy Travels,

We discovered this inn about 6 years ago. After doing a lot of research it ticked all the boxes for our stay during Christmas season.

The rooms are sparkling clean, beds are super comfortable, water in shower is strong. Rooms come in all sizes depending on what you want to spend. Cozy with homemade quilts on the beds and sound proof windows. Comfy fluffy robes and some chocolate too.

The house is almost 200 years old And very well taken care of. The living room many sitting areas perfect for reading or siting in front of the fireplace that George lights daily at about 5Pm. At that time many gather and you get to meet and chat with the other guests as well as the proprietors. After a day out and about or after returning from dinner we always love to enjoy a sip of bourbon or wine while in front of the fireplace.

Breakfast is great with juice, fruit cup and either savory or sweet main course. George is the chef and his recipes have been featured in a book for Ski brunches chosen from select Inns nationwide. Bacon and cheese quiche as well as blueberry waffles with their AMAZING maple syrup or their strawberry crepes are our favorites. While sitting there guests chat with each other and the dining room has a perfect view of Stowe. The only thing I would love to see is an option for a stronger pot of coffee. The brew they make is weak and Vermont offers great coffee options. For a coffee lover like myself that is the only downside for me personally. They have a fantastic separate game room with a full size community fridge, microwave and Keurig coffee maker which I used instead of the coffee they have for breakfast.

When you walk in they ask that folks remove their wet boots and place them on plastic trays they leave for their guests. There they provide disposable slippers for those that want them. I always walked around with my thick socks which made it feel like home.

Finally the location is perfect. It’s a short 2 minute drive from town and on a main road so it’s easy to get to. Love that they are not on Mountain Road which has lots of traffic during peak periods. With so many restaurant options in the area it’s easy to explore from their location.

There are many choices in and around Stowe for lodging and at times we have thought perhaps try something else? We thought of trying an Airbnb but decided against it because we love the comunal times getting to talk to other guests in a warm an open environment; and who wants to cook first thing in the morning or do dishes while on vacation!! We also thought of staying at other B&Bs or larger hotels. But it always comes back to the hospitality of George and Mary Anne that makes this place so SPECIAL. For all of the above and more that is why we keep returning to this warm and friendly gem in Stowe. BOOK EARLY they sell out because of it.

Finally we usually drive in from Boston after visiting family. The drive is about 3.5 hours. We always break it up by stopping for lunch in Woodstock which has a charming diner. On the return we stop at Simon Pierce in Queeche to watch the glass blowers and then have lunch at their restaurant. The view is outstanding as it sits on a waterfall by the river and their is a view of a covered bridge as well.

Let us know if you have any questions. Happy to help!

It is such a special reward to have this opportunity to welcome you both back as guests that feel like friends! You are so very kind to provide us with this invaluable gift of a review, especially for an independently owned and managed B&B. The time we have to get catch up with you and to discuss the world of travel really is a wonderful perk.

That wonderfully close relationship is what attracted us to this business opportunity. Which is why we are sad to see that we did not pick up on the potential win-win with offering you a separate coffee option (not unlike we do for dietary preferences, requirements for the main portion of the breakfast service). As you note, we have lots of options for coffee here in Vermont and we try to go with the "goldilocks approach," not too strong, not too weak. We even had a guest here during your stay, Biff, who complimented our coffee service even as a self professed, "coffee snob."

Lesson learned here is to ask more directly if there is a special coffee/tea/juice that would make your stay even more positively memorable. That is our ultimate reward, creating an elevated experience in a relaxed, comfortable environment. We have now added this note for robust, local coffee for your next stay! ;-)

Thanks again for this incredible review and for taking the time from your busy life to share this with others considering a stay here. These reviews are truly the lifeblood of our dream of a lifestyle.

Happy Travels to you and George!

George and Mary Anne
