If you are looking for a great B&B to stay at in Stowe, Vermont look no further than the Abor Inn on Mountain Road. Michael and Cody the Innkeepers of the Arbor are really nice guys who are there to please and look after your every need. They make you feel very welcomed, comfortable and effortlessly look after their guests. The Inn was immacuately kept. The grounds are beautiful and include an inground pool for those morning swims before you head off on your tour of the Stowe and Mt. Mansfield area. There is also an excellent hot tub to soothe those aching muscles after a long day of hiking or sightseeing. I can't forgot to mention,"the to die for" incediblely delicious Country Breakfast that Michael prepares and Cody serves to you. We looked forward to it and enjoyed it each morning of our stay. A platter of Fresh Fruit, Great Omelettes, Belgian Waffles and make sure you try their Stowe Famous Maple Bacon.

We want to thank Michael and Cody for a great time and look forward to staying at the The Arbor Inn on our future visits to Stowe. Also look out for other friendly members of the Arbor Inn Family during your stay, Vera, Toula the Pug and Mumbo the Parrot.

Best Regards,

Elen and Martin Silver

We booked the Arbor Inn based on the other reviews, and it basically lived up to what was said previously. Michael and Cody are wonderful hosts, the breakfasts are delicious and filling. The location is great no matter what you plan to do in Stowe (which isn't much in summer!). The hot tub is really nice - our niece loved it! We had a problem with the shower, told Michael at breakfast, and it was taken care of within a few hours - surprisingly quick service compared to many places we've stayed.

The room, though very clean, was small and stuffy, in need of updating. The carpeting really needs to be replaced. The AC struggled to keep the temperature at a comfortable level, even at night. And my biggest complaint is that the sheets were 65/35 cotton/polyester - it's been many years since I've slept on anything other than 100% cotton sheets, and these just felt strange and uncomfortable to me. It's just the wrong thing to skimp on in a B&B.

Overall, we'd stay here again if we ever return to Stowe, because it was excellent value compared to other Stowe accommodations. It's often the owners that determine whether your stay at a B&B will be pleasant, and Michael and Cody are the perfect hosts: warm, personable, great to talk to, and responsive to problems. If they would just do a little more updating on the rooms and get better sheets, this place would be perfect!

The accommodations at the Arbor Inn were comfortable and on a clear day you have excellent views of Mount Manfield. Michael and Cody were very hospitable and made us feel at home. Breakfast was very good. Our only real complaint was that the internet service was very slow.

The room was clean and the area was beautiful and quiet. The hosts were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was very good (loved the plate of fruit to start). The inn is a short drive away from the village of Stowe and many activities. There is an outdoor pool and a jacuzzi. We would definitely come back!

The Arbor Inn, what can we say, except………….just greeeeeeeat. We arrived in Stowe without a place to stay. We stopped at the tourist information center and were given a few choices and chose the Arbor Inn for our 2 nights in Stowe. WOW, we sure made the right choice.

Needless to say, we were extremely pleased with Arbor Inn. The place was very clean, parking in front of our door, the beds were comfortable, the rooms immaculate. Although we did not use, there is a nice pool & Jacuzzi. Just a small note, the AC units were a little noisy for those that are light sleepers. However, it is difficult to find quiet AC units and we preferred the noise to the heat as it was ~86-90 degrees during our stay.

The breakfast, included in the price, is absolutely super. Everything was perfect – great coffee, Belgian waffles or delicious eggs, home fries, wonderful fresh fruit, and do not miss their maple glazed bacon, a special treat that should not be missed. Although secret, Cody may sell you the recipe for $9,99…………just kidding Cody.

Michael and Cody were very hospitable, very knowledgeable, very entertaining and ready to provide us with useful tips of interesting places in the area. The Inn is well situated, close to town and other activities. We will definitely be staying there again.

Thank you gentlemen for being yourselves, we could see, in your eyes, the passion for your Inn and the care for your customers. Keep up the excellent work.

Lisanne & Jean

P.S. Continuez votre excellent travail, vous avez la passion, la patience et les talents pour mener à bien votre beau projet qu’est l’Arbor Inn.

Hosts Michael and Cody were entertaining, interesting and fun. We had just dropped in looking for somwhere to stay for 2 nights and never regretted. AC unit in room was noisy was the only negative. Fresh fruit and good breakfast, great atmosphere, would like to have stayed longer
