This is an old motel that has been tastefully and frugally converted to more modern rooms and accommodations---flat screen TV, fridge, two double beds per room, AC, small deck w/ 2 chairs facing large green lawn w/ brook beyond. Clearly accommodating skiers, w/ racks on the wall for 3 pr. of skis. The hotelier was very personable. I thought that the room needed another light on a chest of drawers. Our companion in the next room had more issues with a bulb out in the only lamp beside the bed, and the plug dangling from the wall. So clearly the management needs to check the rooms more carefully.
There was a wonderful enclosed pool that would be great after a day on the slopes or hiking the nearby trails. We did not try the complimentary breakfast…all items were cold and yoghurt and museli did not seem appealing. I am assuming at ski time a warmer and more hearty breakfast is offered…would certainly ask.

Thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear about the issue you travel companion had with one of the lamps. It is our policy to check all the lights before renting the room, but that obviously didn't happen here.

Regarding your comment on our breakfast, we can only wish you WOULD have come in for it, because we actually do serve hot items every day. As you can read from other reviews, our guests are generally very happy with our breakfast and consider it to be a great added value.

Thanks again for your review. We hope you enjoyed your stay at our hotel!

We went in August, definitely not go during the high season, but it was still cheaper than most hotels in town. The beds were very comfortable, the room was spacious, but most of all, the complimentary breakfast was excellent: lot of choice, good food. They also seemed to have a really nice park, although we did not spend enough time in the hotel to be sure. Definitely recommend it.

Thank you so much for your nice review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay at our hotel! Regarding your comment on our "park", I think you are referring to the Stowe Golf Park, the golf-in-miniature park on our property that is a very popular attraction in Stowe.

Thanks again for your stay and review!

We stayed here for our one year anniversary with our dogs in one of their loft rooms. The room was huge which is helpful with two dogs. The property sits right on river which the dogs loved to swim in and we walked through. Pool and spa are clean and refreshing and theres a great mini golf course on the property. Room was nice and bed was comfortable, with the windows shut you don't really hear any outside noise and the new AC units are very quiet so you can run them while you sleep on hot nights. Staff and owners are very friendly and knowledgable about the area.

Defiantly coming back!

Room Tip: Loft is perfect for two people and some pets, or a group of people, plenty of room.

First time visit to Stowe and the stay here made our experience even better. Love sitting by the creek which is a stone throw from our room. Moreover the pool area looks brand new with a nice pool and jacuzzi.

Overall, a great value.

I only stayed at this motel for one night but I could not have been happier. The inn is located up mountain Rd so is a little distance from the main drag but easily reachable by car in 5 minutes. The motel backs unto a stream and has quite a bit of back lawn space. Access to each room is from the outside. The rooms are large enough for two queen beds and also has a patio door leading to the back of the place. There are comfy muskoka chairs to lounge on and even a hammock! Continental breakfast was included and it was more than satisfying for my start of the day.
I was travelling with a dog so was pleased to see that they had thought of people travelling with pets and provided poop bags and places to put 'it'. There are hiking trails nearby too although busy with cyclists, joggers and people but perhaps that was only where I was walking. There is a pet fee

Quaint little place very conveniently located in the Stowe area. Backyard outside room was gorgeous. Decent indoor pool (only 4 feet though so kids were a little disappointed it wasn't deeper), also with a great view. Stowe is an expensive area, so this was a decent value for the money. Only reason not getting full 5 stars is that the furniture was really old and very worn (but it was still clean). But the room in the loft unit was spacious and the kids got a real kick out of sleeping in the two beds upstairs in the loft. We also stayed in the summer season, not the height of winter ski season, so don't know about value for the rates in winter.

We spent Labor Day weekend 12 at Sun & Ski.

There are 4 of us - Mom and Dad, a 14yo girl, and an 11yo boy. We reserved a room with two queens, and asked for a cot.

Our room had a small patio overlooking a lawn that ended at the Little River (I think that was the name). There are a couple of points of access to the river, and I was able to take a (really cold) dip every day we were there.

To counteract the river chill, there is a hot tub, and heated pool.

We will be returning to S&S in the future. It is very well located - the Rec path is right across the street, there are several restaurants/bars within walking distance, and the Stowe Farmers Market is right next door (June-Oct).

The owners are very responsive, and the grounds are very well kept.

I highly recommend Sun & Ski to anyone looking for a centrally located, well kept, reasonably priced lodging.

As I stated, we will be returning.

Room Tip: No on-site gym
