... factory! We ended in the taste room and were given samples of their new flavor, Broccoli Cheddar with mashed kidney Bean ice cream! Hah! That grabbed our attention especially the couple of kids in the group. They flipped the flavor sign around and we all were given generous scoops of Americone (something?). Oh well, it was vanilla ice cream with chocolate chunks, caramel ...
Vermont is GREEN! As far as you can see, trees are clothed in leaves and across the miles, it appears solid GREEN! It certainly makes one understand why so many people are drawn to Vermont during the fall colors. It must be spectacular in brilliant reds, oranges and yellows! We followed Scenic Rt 100 along the spine of Vermont traveling pretty much the length ...
We left Vermont at 1pm to begin our 7 week journey. Heading to New York City to stay with a dear friend Will Robb.
Will has Saturday planned out - highlight include: seeing Dinosaurs at The Natural History Museum and riding on the subway!
Special thanks to Christie Allen for getting us all set up on this blog ...
... no homesickness yet. Has been amazing weather the past few days, so many people got sunburnt. However, we change clothes more in one day due to the weather and activities then Melbourne. The mornings are cool and then it's warm by 10:00, Lunch time is very warm and then we have showers before tea...then an evening activity that is bonding time and quite active that we are all hot and gross ...
... located within historic colonial buildings and the street is closed off to pedestrian traffic only. We stopped at an Irish place with a nice patio on the sidewalk for a couple bloody marys and a small bite to eat. If you looked down the strip of shops you can see a beautiful white steeple at the end of the street overlooking the bustling area. We both loved the city and could have spent all day walking around! The type of locals walking Church Street ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Stowehof Inn
Loved our stay at the Stowehof Inn
Although we've been to Stowe many times, this was our first stay at the Stowehof. We loved it and plan to stay here from now on! The staff was exceptional - always friendly, accommodating and helpful. Our room was so comfortable with a pretty view. Everywhere you go in the Inn is warm and homey - so much to see and do. And the food at Emily's is out of this world. The Stowehof is the perfect place for couples to spend a romantic weekend, but also caters to families with children. The children love the pool and the many games to play in the game room. We can't wait to return to the Stowehof this summer to enjoy the Inn during warm weather!
Great Place to Stay with Toddlers!
This was our third return trip to the Stowehof Inn. We have recommended this inn to many family and friends because it is a great place to be with kids! We always try to look for a 'suite' (our twins are 3)so that once they go to bed, we can still relax & feel like we are away. Besides the outdoor activities, we all loved the indoor pool and there were lots of games & books in the room off of the main dining room to keep them happy and occupied. Great customer service from the staff which is nice with small children. We had dinner at Emily's restaurant-- we would highly recommend the rack of lamb although everything was delicious. This is a great inn for every season of the year. We are planning a return trip in the spring & making it into a family reunion!
While I always feel compelled to share my thoughts on a bad experience, rarely am I moved to write about a terrific experience. The Stowehof made the difference.
My wife and I love the pub, restaurant, common areas, and views from the Stowehof, but unfortunately it keeps falling short in other areas.
charming atmosphere- throughout the inn. Warm smiles to greet and assist in all your needs. "a home away from the home you dreamt you had"
Very very good
My husband and I were referred to hte Stowehof by a friend and we're so glad we went! THe views were great, the staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. THe breakfast comes with the room.
We didn't eat dinner in the dining room, but it looked lovely. We did, however, have a few drinks in the pub which was great. We took our drinks outside and watched the sun set over the mountains.
We weren't planning on going back to Vermont any time soon, but we have already rebooked for another weekend this summer. It was that good!
Better than expected
My wife and I drove through Vermont in September and one of our best stops was at the Stowehof Inn. We're used to staying in junky bed and breakfast places, but a friend told us about the Stowehof. The place is beautiful, the view is spectacular and we definetely plan to go back. It's nice to see a place that has loads of modern bonus features (indoor pool, hot tubs, sauna, neat little pub) that still keeps its rustic charm. We'll be back next year!
We stayed here in early October, 2004 in the red fireplace room (the picture is on the Stowehof website). The room above was quite noisy, and you could hear every step that they took. The inn supposedly underwent a renovation recently, but walking down the halls on the inside of the inn made you feel like you were in a cheap hotel (and it smelled bad in the halls...distinctively like lemon-scented Pledge in some areas). The views are great (especially for fall foilage), but just come for the views (maybe for dinner), and stay elsewhere, as the inn is too expensive for the quality of rooms it provides. We also had a problem with low water pressure (and only lukewarm water), which the repair person came twice to fix it (as well as the manager), and it still remained broken. If you do end up staying here, and they tell you (or leave a message on your answering machine) that there will be a "wedding" here, that also means a reception with loud music (as happened to us). If this happens, simply complain (we got 2 free dinners out of it). My advice, don't stay here.
The inn did not meet my expectations at all. The rooms were very small with very little air circulation. They also had a lot of hidden costs. I was quoted one rate on the phone and paid over $50 a night more when I checked out. The owners were rude and they will nickel and dime you until the end. Don't stay here. Definitely not worth the high price.
