“Nice Inn, spotless room”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Very clean room, quiet and nice. I appreciated the possibility to open the windows, and to smell Stowe’s fresh air. Desk personnel were ok. We didn’t try their restaurant, since there are so many good restaurants in Stowe. The Inn is renting bikes, and has two pools (indoor and outdoor).

We stayed here one night on a motorcycle trip through Vermont. We stayed in room 35 in the Mountain View Manor which is a mountain view deluxe I room with two queen beds, a balcony and a kitchenette. The room was adequate. The beds were adequate. Nothing to rave about. just your standard run of the mill mattress with holes in the blankets and foam pillows.I can live with that but expect a bit more for $154 + taxes. My big complaint was the lack of water pressure in the shower. It was a challenge just to rinse off soap. Rinsing my hair was nearly impossible.
We like to book hotels with restaurants so at the end of a long bike ride we don't have to mount up again to go to dinner, so the Grey Fox fit the bill.
Unfortunately the restaurant is outrageously overpriced. $24.99 for an entree is insane. It wouldn't have been so bad if it was great food but it was just ok. Nothing to rave about.
I also saw on the dessert menu $6.00 for two scoops of plain vanilla ice cream... Crazy.
Anyway.. If you can get a great deal here and just need a place to sleep it works. Looking for something better than your standard motel experience then I advise go elsewhere.

Room Tip: If booking in the Mountain view manor during a busy time of year book the top floor. You can hear ev...

We chose Stowe as a central location for things we wanted to do in the New England area which included daytrips to Burlington, Maine (and Mt Mansfield itself). The location was convenient to the interstate and we chose Grey Fox since we stayed there some years ago. The last time there we stayed in the Mountain View Manor but since we were traveling so much this time we opted for the Main Inn. We knew we weren't going to spend much time in the room so the lower cost was appealing.

The room we stayed in was a bit quirky. The bathroom was extremely small. Two people could not occupy the room at the same time. The sleeping area was a bit cramped as the king bed had just a very narrow area to walk around. That said, however, we were quite comfortable and have no complaints at all about the service. Clean, comfortable rooms and a friendly, helpful staff go a very long way with us. Kudos to everyone there.

We only had time for one breakfast in the Dutch Pancake Cafe but it was terrific. Our server was friendly and attentive and the food was excellent.

We had a great time in Vermont and the Grey Fox Inn was the icing on the cake.

Room Tip: Some noise from the early trash pickup on the west side (back) of the hotel.

We were originally headed to the Inn directly across the street, but the charm of the Grey Fox Inn & Resort was what won out in the end! We were not disappointed!

All the staff, from the front desk to the restaurant and bar staff were friendly and helpful. The food was great, the service second to none, the atmosphere relaxing and enjoyable and the rooms charming and very clean!

The Inn has bike rentals and backs right onto the scenic 4 1/2 mile bike path through the mountain and along the ravine or one short mile right into the beautiful New England style village of Stowe. There are two pools one indoors and one out. It also boasts a workout room, sauna, hot tub, laundry facilities, and games room.

The close proximity of the Inn to all of what the beautiful Vermont mountains has to offer makes it a great place to stay as well! It seems you're never more than a few minutes from anything you might like to do, from hiking to alpine sliding, from shopping to enjoying a show or even taking a gondola ride or going horseback riding just to mention a few.

We will definitely return to The Grey Fox Inn & Resort! I'm thinking October with all the breathtaking Fall colors! :)

We went to Stowe for a motorcycle ride and stayed at the Grey Fox. Service was really good. Jen (front desk) found us a wooden board for the motorcycle on the gravel parking.
Television screen are kind of small (19 inches for watching a hockey game)!!!!

Thank you very much to Jen. and the waitresses Katrine & Danielle

We really appreciated our stay at this motel.

Jen and "hurricane" Katrine (sp?) were fantastic and really generous. I had a great time in their company. Thanks for your hospitality and humor. I guess maybe I'm glad the Celtics weren't available since that didn't go so well. They both should get a very sizeable raise.

We recently had a 3 day reunion of 9 Coast Guard officers who had served together aboard the icebreaker Mackinaw and their wives. The Grey Fox provided nice rooms with outside decks and a great place on the 2nd floor where we could all get together. While the weather was excellent, none of us took advantage of the pool. The breakfast menu in the cafe is extensive but not expensive. Stowe is well sited to permit visits to a number of interesting spots in central and northern vermont. The staff at the Grey Fox was very helpful and really made an effort to look out for us. We all agreed that it was a good choice.
