Historical Traveler Reviews Stone Hill Inn Stowe
Can't wait to go back!
We just wanted to say again how much we enjoyed our visit to your inn. When we found it on the internet months ago, we knew it was a place we had to visit. Although the leaves were beautiful during our visit to Vermont, it was your beautiful inn that lured us there. The personal yet unobtrusive service was amazing, and you truly have thought of everything a couple would want for a romantic getaway. You obviously take great pride in your business and in providing a level of service that is just not often seen in today's world. We look forward to making your inn our anniversary tradition.
October, 2004 - My husband and I just made our first trip to Vermont. After much research on the internet we decided on the Stone Hill Inn in Stowe, and we hit the jack pot. We are very particular about where we stay, and we found the Stone Hill to be quite unique. With it's nine rooms and gorgeous grounds, you have privacy all the time, yet there is much room to roam and not feel confined. Hap and Amy did a wonderful job in their planning, and we loved their dog, Gunther. The only down side was that since it was our first trip we spent a lot of time running and didn't spend enough time relaxing at the beautiful Inn, so we have made a promise to get back there this winter.
I wish someone would do something as wonderful closer to home.
Luxury all the way
We found this excellent bed and breakfast on the net while searching for vacation spots. It was a pleasure to drive up and see the bldg and surrounding grounds. Our room was the largest and best of any that we have had on our travels. The word luxury is used for this inn, and indeed, it was just that. What a good memory. We look forward to returning.
Loved it all
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this inn in July of 1999. Amy and Hap were wonderful hosts and since we were there in a down-time, perhaps it was during the week, we had 3-4 nights where we had the entire inn to ourselves. It was like luxury, and we so enjoyed ourselves. The food was scrumptious (gotta get that recipe for the shrimp remoulade and the cheese with nutty coating) and the pantry was a nice touch to provide guests with the little snacks they might like to take on a walk, a hike etc...
Amy and Hap were truly wonderful hosts and so courteous. The room was spotless and beautifully decorated (White Birch) and the entire building pristine. Such a beautiful place, and so romantic.
Now that we have a son, we regret that we cannot return to this particular inn as a family as there is no adjoining room, or configurations to make this possible, but we hope perhaps for a child-free vacation someday so that we may return.
Thank you for the wonderful stay back in 1999 - while you may not remember me, I certainly maintain fond memories.
What a lovely place. We will return.
We stayed at the Stone Hill Inn as part of our honeymoon trip to New England and had a lovely time. Amy and Hap are so helpful and friendly and their attention to detail at the inn is exceptional. We felt truly at home and would like to return on our next visit to Vermont.
The inn is very relaxed. There is a pool table in the reception area and also a kitchen/pantry area for the use of guests. There are free beverages in the fridge at all times and coffee/tea etc. The rooms are truly amazing, the two person jacuzzi, the cuddly toys in the room, the rubber duck!! Congratulations Amy and Hap, it is the perfect inn.
Top of our list
Stone Hill Inn in Stowe Vermont is at the top of our favorites list for Luxury Bed and Breakfast Inns. My husband and I are seasoned travelers we have stayed in over 150 upscale Inns and Bed and Breakfast across North America so we speak from experience. Amy and Hap are young energetic Innkeepers that have a lot of patience and try to please everyone. They have anticipated every need and amenity to make for a wonderful experience.
The Inn is newly constructed it is evident a lot of planning was done, the layout is very inviting every spacious room has a king bed and two comfortable chairs Television with VCR (library of movies to pick from) and sliding glass door to a patio overlooking a beautiful landscape with water fall.
Each Room has a huge bathroom with a double sink, plenty of counter space, roomy shower and the best things Big Jacuzzi tubs with lots of jets and a fireplace that you can view from the Jacuzzi or the bedroom. Nice soft pillows on the bed and a comforter with a choice if you prefer firmer ones.
The layout of the building is functional in that the rooms are spread out enough that they are very private no stairs to climb is a plus and no one above you. There are 3 common areas a quite room to read or do some work at a desk with high speed internet. A casual area with comfortable sofas and gorgeous stone fireplace also a billiard and game table area.
24 hour beverage panty with an evening hors d'oeuvres. In the morning the breakfast time is extensive to accommodate the early birds or if you like to sleep in. a bit. The breakfast room is a separate wing of the building individual tables or groups if you request it, each table has its own window view. Lots of choices in sweet or savory delights with fruit and some type of muffin to start. Hap is a Culinary genius and we look forward to his new cook book.
Each morning Amy helps with things to do and places to go in the area and each evening she helps with dinner suggestions and directions. They watch over the Inn to make sure each guest is cared for. We will return.
Absolutely Wonderful Inn!
As an innkeeper myself, it is rare for me to find another inn that totally satisfies...but how I love the Stone Hill Inn! This charming B&B has all the comforts and hospitality that any guest could hope for, all in a delightful setting and hosted by charming innkeepers.
My room was spotlessly clean, the food was delicious, I was able to relax and refresh to my heart's content.
I absolutely recommend this excellent B&B...and it takes one to know one! :-)
We stayed @ the Stone Hill Inn, for our 10th Anniversary in Nov/03 and it was wonderful.
Breakfast was great everyday, the room was beautiful, and the property itselt is stunning.
We recommend this to any couple looking for a romatic getaway.
We will definately return to stay there.
Alternate R & R
For our first visit, we expected R&R "Rest and relaxation", however what we got was R&R "Rules and regulations"! I guess we should have seen the "signs"...payment up front, and the threat of a $500 penalty if we infringed any of the "house rules", for which I had to sign agreement to. Then you begin to notice them...the miriad of little framed notices infoming you of what you can and cannot do, when you can do it, and when you cannot. They are in your room, bathroom, and every single room in the house, and when no rule exisits for a particular aspect, one is not too far away from being made! We (party of four) sat out on the patio at 10:00pm on a Friday evening of 75 degrees (no sign to say you could not) drinking a little wine with light convivial conversation..not for long though! The hostess arrived to inform us that "they were not used to foursomes, sixsomes or eightsomes, and could we stop what we were doing because others were trying to sleep. "We usually cater for only couples" something that was not elluded to when I made the reservations. I have to say the decor is first class, and so is the food. However, we all were left feeling very uncomfortable doing anything in the house, as one is watched very carefully. One poor guest lost the fob from his room key, and was asked to search his luggage"in case it was in there"!!! the fellow guest told us they felt very uncomfortable. So if you are spending $1,000 for a couple of nights and you expect to chill and relax, then choose somewhere else. The second night we sat down the road at another patio/bar where we were made very welcome indeed, until our bedtime, as we did not enjoy being watched over. One other point to note. While the host, and especially the hostess have a wonderful building and expert culinary skills, they lack anything approaching good people skills. There are ways to ask people to do things and make them feeel good about complying, and there are ways not to ask...so beware! We were all in agreement we would not return again.

... and now I also have **** for wifi so I can’t even call Jym again. All day I had reception so I don’t know what happened. I had hope that Vermont would be a lot better than New Hampshire and I even had 4G at points in the day but not now. Now I am back to not even being able to send a text. I did manage to speak to Jym by going down to the lobby and bar area which is closer to the wifi modem.

... well received by the Saga-aged visitors (the rest, not us). We had left it a bit late to see everything, so we scooted about the site taking glimpses of the various displays, including one room with four original Claude Monet paintings. The owners clearly don't use a Dollar Store very often. It was a good stop-off and deserved closer inspection. Sadly, it closed at 5 and we were urged out into Burlington's rush-hour traffic.

We spent some time contemplating where they could find such people in this land of mainly such kind and hospitable people. We decided they must train them that way.

Being in the mountains and the lack of moisture recently made the colors so vivid. Perfect timing for the best color.

The services lasted two hours and were twice a day and it was compulsory to attend..... No excuses allowed. There was also a church graveyard that some of the revolutionary founders were buried in (traitorous *******s) also some poet called Robert Frost, I don't know who he was but I did see a chipmunk which was has ...
