Ye Olde England Inne
Travel Blogs from Stowe
Woke up this morning after another cool (OK, have had to use the furnace twice!) night, got ourselves around and pulled out. We headed to Waterbury, VT to enjoy a true flavor of the state for breakfast. Nope, not pancakes and maple syrup - we had ICE CREAM! We toured the Ben and Jerry Ice Cream Factory which is truly a sweet treat of an experience. Believe it or not, we ...
... jelly and a wedge of Vermont cheddar cheese. The drive was long and there were NO campground until almost the end so we were tired when we finally stopped. Duxbury is a two building stop with the campground being run by the little general store. Rest and in the morning, we'll be ready to roll. A couple more stops in Vermont and on to New Hampshire. Till then. . . ...
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 ...
... allowed our iPods etc in our cabins so Lucy and I did a fun workout in our cabin with the music up loud. Did more laughing then exercising but they were both a great workout. We have a jukebox in the dining hall, so many songs to choose from but we have the same few songs being selected over and over again. Our own little pre camp soundtrack. Lots of Beatles songs, Uptown Girl, Had a huge singalong ...
... so you guys could check it out ( Big Boulders everywhere). This area is mostly known for its array of ski runs and lodges but also has some beautiful hiking trails, waterfalls, and gorges. Setting up camp and cooking dinner took up most of our first night here. We also enjoyed some Long Trail Ale brewed locally… really delicious. The next morning we cooked breakfast and headed for Sterling Pond Trail. Much less muddy compared to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ye Olde England Inne Stowe
Returning to the Inne 8 years after our marriage there, we thought we would sample the delights of Stowe in the fall. Ye Olde England Inne was still as excellent as ever. Our room was spotless and comfortable. Service was faultless and the food in Mr Pickwicks restaurant was the best we had tried in New England. Chris and Lyn really know how to run a hotel and made us feel so welcome. If you're going to Stowe don't bother with the rest - Ye Olde England Inne is simply the best!!!!
A Unique One of A Kind Experience
To miss staying at the Ye Olde England Inne while touring Vermont is not an option for me. I have been visiting the Inne for over 10 years and it has become a destination in and of itself.
Outstanding rooms, enviable service, superb dining and the best selection of beer and wine I have ever had at an Inn.
Miss this and weep!
Nostalgia from Brazil
It is spring in Brazil and outumn in Vermont and I miss Ye Olde England Inne. My husband and I fell in love with the Inne before we were married. The beautifull rooms, friendly service and great food were the highlights of my first trip to Vermont. One of the first things I will do when I return to the United States is to have my husband take me to the Ye Olde England Inne to revive those precious moments.
Fabulous Inn and Owners
We have stayed at Ye Olde England Inn every year for about 20 years. The Inn and its amenities are superb. Mr. Pickwick's is wonderful and we cannot say enough about Lyn and Chris. They are terrific hosts and go out of their way to be sure you are happy there. We have stayed at about 100 B & Bs in New England---and this is the one we always come back to. Our summer is not complete without time at Ye Olde England. It's perfect!
Extraordinary Wedding Reception
We were married at Ye Olde England Inne in early June, choosing the Inne after many happy visits over a period of years. We had scheduled an outdoor mountain service, followed by a reception at the Inne. Well, it rained so hard that the roads up the mountain were closed. The management came to us at breakfast with a well thought-out plan for holding the ceremony at the Inne. They had to un-set the reception tables and take them down, reposition the chairs and set up for a ceremony, and then re-position everything in time for the reception--all this on very short notice--and with a smile! The event went off without a hitch, and now we have a wedding story to tell our children.
The rooms are lovely, the service friendly and welcoming. The two restaurants are both terrific in their own way, one casual and one not. If you like British brews, this is the place! We never miss an opportunity to stay there.
Just perfect... Ye Old England Inne
We'd like to thank everyone at Ye Olde England Inne for making our wedding day so wonderful. The garden was a perfect setting for our special day, thank you so much for allowing us to hold the wedding ceremony there. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you, and the wedding just topped it all off. Thanks to all of the staff for making us so welcome, especially Leanne and Brian who really looked after us on our arrival and went out of their way to feeding nine weary, hungry travelers after eleven pm when they should have finished work and been on their way home.
Special thanks go to the owners, Lyn & Chris, for their tireless work and for making this such a memorable visit.
Jackie & Nigel
p.s. then we went on honeymoon to Florida and met Frances, but that's another story!
A Local Loved the Tasting Dinner
What a fabulous tasting dinner Mr. Pickwick's chef Sam made for us on our 26th anniversary Thursday night! It was truly excellent...and we thoroughly enjoyed it..As local fussy foodies and I, a dessert caterer, who have eaten at every upscale restaurant in town, this special six-course tasting dinner was interesting, beautifully presented and an excellent value. Good job!...
Worth a look
We stayed here for one night (2 adults 2 Children 3 & 5 Years) on the 25th of may 04. What a beautiful place, the hotel gave us the Canterbury Cottage which although around the back of the hotel was great a 2 bedroom cottage with a small but well equipped kitchenette well furnished sitting area bedrooms very clean and well maintained, the bath had a jacuzzi in it wich the kids loved and the chipmonks running around outside. The staff were lovely and helpful and the surrounding area was breathtaking my only regret was we only had one night here. If you stay in the area a visit to the cidar mill is recommended as is Ben and Jerrys.
Wonderful Place to Stay
This was a wonderful place to stay. My husband and I were married there in February 2003. They planned everything for the ceremony, even the flowers! Our room had a marvelous view of the village. The breakfasts each morning were delicious. A free dinner was included in our wedding package, and we were very impressed with their restaurant, Mr.
Pickwicks. The staff was very helpful in arranging activities for us, and making dinner reservations at other restaurants if we desired. The were very knowledgeable of the area and all the activites offered. I would gladly stay here again, and highly recommend it to anyone planning to visit the Stowe area.
A little bit of England
One might be suprised to find that deep in the valleys of Vermont is a small piece of "old" England. This is a reasonable attepmt of the two very hospitable English owners to create a "flavour" of the home lands. However, it is fair to say, I believe, that the decor/accomodation are not what one would call traditional "olde" English style, but many Americans will be convinced that it is. The most disappointing aspect of our stay, was the fact that I had very much looked forward to a traditional "pint" of one of the many English ales that were "on tap". However, the most evil thing that one can do to a English ale is chill it to almost freezing!and this is what they had done. The ale was ice cold and tasteless as a result, you've guessed it perhaps you are not in England, you ARE in the USA, a land where all drinks MUST be ice cold! The food is without doubt the highlight of ones stay here. My personal recommendation would be the "Fish and chips", but everything I had was outstanding. One other thing they do very well, is present you with one the best wine lists I have seen, with a heavy influence on the Austrialian selection (a very big plus for me). I had a "Wolfblass 96 shiraz" and it was liquid gold in a bottle! Do try the England Inn, you will enjoy your stay, but if you are English be prepared to remember...you are in the USA!
