Green Mountain Inn
Travel Blogs from Stowe
After a couple of days in Vermont, I have decided that it is my favourite place in the US - so many things we aren't going to have time to do so we'll just have to come back for another trip!
We are staying in Stowe which is a little mountain village - sort of a bit like Leura in the Blue Mountains. The hotel that we are staying at is the …
Monday we woke up to 5" of powder and skied our buns off. Great day skiing on our own while Megan and Adam Hooked up with their buddies. Dave and Darlene are having a great time as well. Today Adam and Liam hit all the tree runs in the morning while Allison and I took the Casey's on a bit of a tour of ...
... the top 6. It was super cool because my two teammates were leading for part of the race, but because the course wasn't that wide, there were a lot of crashes. I was feeling really strong on the hills, so I made a move. I underestimates the length of the 2nd to last hill, and though I was still with the pack of 6 girls, my legs were dying. I ended up falling back to the 7&8 skiers and was able to stay on their tails pretty much the rest ...
I didn't have very big expectations for the classic sprint, but I am very happy how I competed yesterday. The outline goes like this: first is a time trial of the 1.3k course. A kid goes out every 15 seconds and then they sort the times. The place you got was your seed, and only the top 30 seeds move onto the quater-finals. Then in the quater-finals there are five heats, taking the top 2 in each heat to the semi-finals. 2 'lucky ...
I guess old habits die hard. I haven't been in school for 2 academic years yet I still like to take a "break" in March. Lesley, Larissa and I spent 2 days in Burlington Vt. at the Green Mountain Suites. A little shopping and loads of laughs with a bit of wine added made for an enjoyable ...

... Still pretty good. Perhaps enlarged a little too much to justify its 'Inn' name we had a pleasant room with an eccentric whirlpool bath with doors that opened to make italy of the bedroom. The gas log fire would no doubt be both romantic and welcome in the ski season.

Historical Traveler Reviews Green Mountain Inn Stowe
Summer visit. Stayed in a Mill House (separate bulding) room.
Incredibly well thought out room. For example, it had one of those Jacuzzis you could see from the canopied bed, but also a folding door so that you could close off the view. Never seen that before and much appreciated it.
Not only was there a coffee maker tastefully hidden inside a cabinet, but there was also plates, silverware and corkscrew already there.
I'm not very articulate about such things, so maybe this will make the point. I'm the kind of guy for whom Motel 6 is fine. My spouse is times 10 the opposite and the challenge for an aesthetically-chanllenged sort such as me is figuring out online if a hotel will make the cut. This place is a no-brainer.
Great romantic weekend
My husband and I stayed in the Mill House in February 2004. The room was great - just like the picture, and I liked the rest of the inn also. The heated outdoor pool was quite special, and if you need to work out there is a nice array of equipment. The only comment I have on the room is that the bathroom floor was very cold and there were no rugs. The buffet breakfast was OK, but not great, and not worth the extra cost. There was a large selection of pastries, some cereal/toast, scrambled eggs, sausage/bacon, and pancakes. Buffet pancakes don't work, though. I would have liked to see a waffle station or something.
We ate dinner at the Whip - it was good, but not outstanding.
Although I really enjoyed our stay, I'm not quite sure if it was worth the price.
We recently returned from what will be the first of many visits to Stowe and the Green Mountain Inn.
I stayed at the Green Mountain Inn for my honeymoon. I was pleasantly suprised by the beautiful Mill house room that we stayed in. The restaurant was also fantastic, the homeade bread was to die for. We were dissapointed though that the pool and restaurant closed for maitnance after our 3rd night there and was closed for the rest of our week long trip. They told us they tried calling us to tell us but we did not get any messages nor did they contact us by mail. Since we did book the Inn 6 months in advanced they had plenty of time to give us notice. I would reccommend the inn but definately confirm that everything is open during your stay.
A frequent guest
A delightful Inn. Both our sons went to college in Vermont, so we began staying at GMI for parents weekends. Everyone enjoyed the inn's atmosphere, amenities, and presence in the heart of Stowe village.
W'eve had several extended family holidays at the inn since, including thanksgiving, and plan to collect everyone and spend next Christmas there. The Green Mountain Inn is synonymus with quality, service and great memories.
In April 2002, my family and another family went to this hotel as we had booked a ski-ing holiday.We were put in annexe rooms and at first everything was ok. The rooms were ok but family rooms had very little hanging space especially with all the ski gear you take on such a break!The greatest attraction for us was the heated pool to ease up the muscles after a day on the slopes! This was a deciding factor in our choice of hotel.However, towards the end of our holiday, we were told that the pool was closing for routine maintenance and would be closed for the rest of our stay. We asked that they wait until we left for home as we were right at the end of the season but they said it was closing.After a rather heated discussion with management, our holiday rep transferred the seven of us to the Stoweflake Mountain Resort which had a pool that stayed open for ski-iers until the end of the season.So this hotel started with much promise but things turned rather sour for us! When a hotel offers a heated pool as part of the package, you expect to have the use of it for the duration of your stay!Cath Donne, Cardiff, UK
Myself and my wife booked this hotel as part of our winter holiday package this January (2003). The hotel was booked direct with them and we requested that we be in the main inn and have a full bathroom.
We stayed in one of the wonderful Mill House rooms for our Honeymoon. The staff was very helpful & polite. The inn was sparkling clean. We had a spacious room with a king size canopy bed, down duvet, large jacuzzi tub & big screen tv. A quiet breakfast in front of our fireplace was wonderful. Their on-site restaurant, The Whip Bar & Grill has great food!
This hotel is simply marvelous - wonderful location, well appointed cozy rooms with beautiful decor, amazing pool, and very clean.
I found the staff to be very professional, polite, knowledgeable about the surrounging area, and extremely helpful. The Whip Bar and Grill and Main Street Dining Room are both superb restaurants to eat at on site. Try some local brews at the bar and the breakfast buffet at the dining room is a must have.
It is exactly what I expected from a hotel in Vermont. With the beautiful fireplace in the library near the lobby and the ambiance of the whole place, I truly felt like I was in a ski resort community.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat and I totally recommend it to anyone planning a trip to beautiful Stowe.
I want to go back
This hotel is quite simply a treasure. Elegant atmosphere, great romms, beautiful pool, and recreational facilities, great bar with local brews and friendly bar staff and quality restuarant. All of these features in Vermont's most attractive village. This hotel provides everything for a truly enjoyable vacation.
