“Looks nice but we felt it is haunted”
Reviewed August 3, 2009

Very nice location and owner is very nice. Bit pricey. It is in woods that is one nice thing and owner tried to keep the cabins as clean as possible, they are doing their best.

But one weired thing we observed that our cabin bedroom is haunted, what ever things we keep on our bed or on lamp table some one throws them away and we observed multiple times, initially we thought it is our chilidren but later on we found that it is not our kids but some thing in there.

If any one intersted in ghosts or haunted place they can try this place. Pretty intersting.

Any ways, nice place near to major attractons,good place,good owner.

People in Stowe (i.e. other Innkeepers, visitors, etc) kept asking about our stay at Stowe Cabins in the Woods - I kept saying that they are just that - a cabin in the woods, nothing more, nothing less! The cabin that we stayed in for 3 nights was a very nice size, with a bedroom separate from the living area. The kitchen had a full refrigerator and a tiny oven that liked to burn things. The woodstove kept the place extremely warm. The TV luckily had cable so we could watch plenty of Christmas movies at night. I do have to say that the couch was pretty gross (it was acutally a futon with holes in it) and the pillows on our bed were even grosser (stains, smelled like cigarette smoke) but a little bit of febreeze and a glade candle made it better! The area itself was very pretty and snowy, and I am sure it is very nice in the spring/summer months too.

  • Liked — it was a snowy cabin! in the woods!
  • Disliked — Cleanliness needs some work - esp the bedding/futon cover

My husband and I needed a few days to ourselves away from everyone. Stowe Cabins was wonderful. The owner was friendly and helpful. Our cabin was beautiful and perfect for us. It snowed a few inches, and that made our trip even more romantic. We plan on returning every year around the same time. I would recommend it to everyone who wants a simple, quiet getaway tucked away in the woods.

Disappointing. We expected it to be rustic, but we didn't expect the damp and moldiness.

We would never rent a moldy cabin. This year has had one of the wettest springs and summers in Vermont history and mustiness can occur from time to time. We wish that these guests had voiced their concerns to us during their 4-night stay. Had they done so, we would have gladly moved them to another cabin, shampooed their carpet, or done whatever else to make them happier. While we can’t control the weather, we can certainly make a difference if we’re given the chance.

My husband and I have been going to the 1836 Cabins every year for 4 years now. We have rented other cabins that allow pets and they have been pretty shabby. We have always been delighted to go to the 1836 Cabins. They are clean, modern and private. The owners live on the property so check-in is a breeze. Their home is always open and so cozy! They have always been very friendly. If someone is looking for a relaxing getaway I would highly recommend this place.

This is not a luxurious place to stay. However, If you are going for a quick weekend away and want a decent place to stay for a reasonable price, this is a good choice. We have been here two years in row to ski. The location is very good (just about 15min to ski area) and it is off the main road in the woods and is pet friendly.

The cabins are a good size (standard cabins have 2 bedrooms) with kitchens and private bathrooms. They have older furniture and no cable but are clean and the owners are friendly. Good choice for a ski weekend on a budget.
