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.

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!

Also tried some local brews, the Citizen cider... which was like champagne of ciders and V.I.P.A. their Vermont ipa.

The roadside Motel was ok, but we really prefer the homey accommodations of the AirBnB network. We've learnt from that and will plan a bit differently from here. Breakfast was at a roadside diner about 15 minutes up the road from Raymond. We had pancakes for breakfast ...
87 degree temps does not encourage fall colors! However, a stop at Ben @ Jerry's eased the warm day. Crossed from VT to NY via Lake Champlain ferry ($23). Ausable Chasm was worth the stop...and provided a scenic hike. Colorful trees amidst interesting layers of rock were amazing! Staying at Black Bear Camping in NY for 3 nights allowed us to explore the area. Even tho we missed our scheduled West Point tour......got ...
... Grist mill and then a small parking area by the river called Brewster’s River Park. There was a covered bridge there too and we noticed people were driving through it. First we went up the hill walking and then decided to drive it because it was getting steep and seemed to go on and on. That was a good idea and then road led us down beautiful tree lined roads and popped us back out at the 108 further up on the road.
... until we called in Michael's (true) and Steph treated herself to a new fabric cutter. Route 7 took us out of Rutland, northwards towards Burlington alongside Lake Champlain. It's a slow route, 55mph max, but littered with beautiful "leaf peeping" opportunities. We are now becoming quite blasť about leaf colour (color!). Brandon was a soup stop and then upwards to the Shelburne Museum, one of the nation's finest museums according to ...
