Historical Traveler Reviews Timberholm Inn Stowe
Great location, great hosts (Rich and Darrill), great food, rustic environment
I spent five days with two friends at the Timberholm Inn in Stowe Vermont. We chose a suite that had two bedrooms, a living room and bath. We were provided a full, gourmet breakfast every morning between 8 and 10 AM. The lodge was rustic and clean. We had the use of a hot tub, videos and a supply of books if looking for something to read. Every afternoon we sat on the deck and enjoyed the beautiful scenery while sipping wine and eating cheese (which we purchased). The lodge provided cookies every afternoon. You couldn't find better hosts who were always willing to give directions and provide maps. The location was great because we were close to the ski lifts, the Von Trapp Lodge, Burlington, and Montpelier (the capital). It was a great experience. I would recommend this lodge to anyone. Even the fellow travellers that we met were friendly. It was great.
Excellent Inn at Stowe
Travelling from England we stayed at the Timberholme Inn at Stowe and the hospitality was excellent. The Inn was set in a beautiful location and the breakfasts were outstanding. Highly recommended.
Great hospitality, tight quarters
We visited the Timberholm when it was full, in Mid-August. The inn is beautiful, on a side street, off the main road and very quiet. The views from the inn's deck are remarkable and the place is immaculately maintained.
The breakfast served is made of Vermont produce and is quite hearty (very decadent and not low fat :0)). Memorable were the pecan waffles with bacon strips on the side and the frittata.
The room we had had a great view but in all was a bit tiny - so do not focus on the room in your stay: go out, enjoy the town or the state. The bed, too, was very high and we were lucky not to roll off of it. One point I would try to improve upon is the fact that all the bathrooms face the inn's beautiful back yard; the sad side-effect is that you enjoy the aroma...
In short, a great place for romantic escapes.
We are so happy we discovered this B&B in a perfect location in Stowe. It's separated from the main road but it the heart of everything. The innkeepers Rich and Darrick are nothing but the best. They make you feel at home and extremely comfortable. The main living room is very cozy and we really enjoyed the mountain views from the back porch. Perfect place to play a game of chess, read, have a glass of wine or just enjoy the surroundings.
Of course I have to mention the fantastic breakfast! So so so good. You will not leave hungry. Everything from the coffee to the afternoon tea and fresh cookies to the atmosphere was enjoyable and Rich and Derrick are so great!
Two nights turned into six...
When Paul and I called the Timberholm and reserved two nights, we knew nothing about Stowe, VT, and very little about the inn. We were a few days into an impromptu vacation, and our only plan was to explore New England with as few plans as possible. The Timberholm was available, affordable, and seemed comfortable enough for a gamble.
We arrived at the inn later that day, and immediately thought: two days might not be enough. Located about half a mile off the main road on several acres of forest, the Timberholm is quiet and secluded, yet still close to all that Stowe has to offer. The lawns and flower gardens surrounding the house are inviting, well tended, and sprinkled with bird houses. Inside, the great room is full of warm woods, comfortable furniture, shelves of books, and a fireplace the size of my first apartment.
Have you ever stayed at a B&B where the decor was so intricate and ornate that it felt like you were in a museum? You'd like to lie down, but you're afraid to disrupt the two dozen carefully arranged pillows on the bed. And don't even think about really settling down in the living room. Well, that's not the Timberholm. If you are looking for an immaculate room, Laura Ashley linens, and a Louis XIV bedstead, keep looking. We found something much better than that. Whether we were on the porch sipping morning coffee and watching the woodpeckers squabble, or curled up with a book after a long hike, the Timberholm is the kind of place where we were truly able to make ourselves at home. Rich and Darrik, the Inn's owners and proprietors, were not only attentive and eager to help, they were sincere. It was immediately clear that they were not simply doing their jobs: they were inviting us into their home, and they were glad to have us. That is a large part of why our two nights turned quickly into six.
Which brings me to breakfast. Let me tell you about breakfast. I usually skimp, or skip it altogether, but for that week it became my favorite part of the day. No buffet or warming trays here. Everything was made fresh and served as we sat down. Each meal started with fresh fruit: we had melon, cherries, or grapefruit, often served with vanilla yogurt or crunchy granola. This was usually followed by homemade scones, banana bread, or something similarly hot from the oven, and then a delicious quiche, fritatta, or other egg dish. Bacon or maple sausages on the side. One morning we had french toast stuffed with blackberries and cream cheese -- just fantastic. A great deal of their ingredients come from local Vermont farms or merchants: meats, cheeses, butter, cider, blended teas, etc. And they were more than happy to make accommodations for vegetarians or those with dietary restrictions or allergies. The guests we met each morning were obviously enjoying themselves, and the breakfast conversation was livelier and easier than I expected. People were relaxed and enjoying themselves, that was clear. Several of the folks we met had stayed at the inn several times before.
The Timberholm has eight bedrooms, plus two multiple-room suites. The bedrooms came in a couple sizes and prices, ranging from $99 for a compact room and double bed, to $119 for a queen-sized bed in a larger room. We stayed in both, and while we found the larger room more comfortable, the compact room was cozy and functional. All rooms have private bathrooms with tubs or showers. In addition to the common living and dining rooms, there is a TV and game room in the basement, and an outdoor hot tub that must really hit the spot during ski season.
We hope to visit Vermont again soon, during the winter next time. We'll definitely be back at the Timberholm.
From the moment I drove up to the Timberholm Inn I thought, "Awwww relaxation". The Inn itself is like a log cabin with a great front porch and the landscaping is beautiful. The interior of the common areas are very rustic which so fits in with the setting, but the best view is from the back deck. Mountains surround the Inn and the landscaping that they have created are beautiful. They even put in their own mini nature trail! When I went down to breakfast it was wonderful. They serve you individually. Not the normal "continental breakfast buffet". All of their main dishes were homemade and what I had was delicious! The quiches, the stratas and pancakes with fresh fruit and Vermont Maple syrup. Yummie.
I would highly recommend the Inn to anyone who expects more than the normal fare and hosts. They were attentive and truly concerned with any need I had.
GO! Experience yourself!
An awesome place!!
The innkeepers were absolutely spectacular, they made you fell at home in their inn. The breakfast's were very tasty and prepared well!!..The views were awesome....not too far from the main city and not too close, just right.
Tradition lives on...
My wife and I just recently returned from a trip to Vermont. This was my second stay at the Timberholm, but it's been 12 years since my last visit. The quaint and relaxing traditions of Stowe (and the Timberholm) live on while the new owners have made some wonderful changes.
We were looking for a B&B in Vermont with owners who were excellent cooks, knew a lot about the area and were friendly. We were 3 for 3 on this visit.
This is definitely a wonderful inn where one can relax, get a feel for rustic Vermont and truly experience the good life.
Best breakfasts around!!!!
This is the best place ever if you want to stay around Stowe. The gentlemen who run it, Rich and Darrick and the kindest folks you will meet. They offer wonderful hospitality and make you feel right at home. In the evenings in the winter they have hot soup and other times they have warm baked cookies... Rich makes a "to die for" breakfast.... We have stayed here two times and will be staying a third time in another week. The accomodations are quaint and simple...the hot tub is wonderful...and they are off the main road so if you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place! Give them a shot...they will not disappoint!
Vermont at its best.
Beautiful location just off the mountain road in Stowe....Had an amazing time the two nights we stayed ... ........ ..Would recommend this inn highly.Owners are really helpful and the home cooked food was great..
