We just spent a wonderful weekend at the Fitch Hill Inn. We decided to visit the Stowe area a week ago, and were lucky to find this gem. We arrived on Friday evening with our college aged son, and stayed in the Green Mountain Suite. We were warmly greeted by Julie, and after partaking of the fresh cookies that apparently are available every evening, she gave us an introduction to the inn then left us to settle in. The room was very nice, with lots of room even with the sleeper pulled out. In the morning we had one of the best breakfasts ever, starting with the baked pear, then a pumpkin nut muffin, followed by stuffed French toast (a single piece made with cream cheese between two thin slices of bread, the whole thing then dipped in the egg mixture and grilled, topped by a blueberry maple sauce. Delicious, and just the right amount of food (some meals are overly generous and leave you feeling stuffed, this was just perfect). We then went to Trapp Family Lodge for a wonderful day of skiing. Skied up to the cabin for lunch, then on around the trails. At our host's recommendation we went to the Bees Knees in Johnson for dinner, then went back to the Inn where we had a pleasant conversion with John and then watched a movie.
In the morning we had another good breakfast (berries on yogurt, blueberry muffins, egg soufflé), then went skiing on the trails by the high school. Though not as extensive as commercial areas, they as just a few minutes from the Inn, are well groomed, and free. For lunch we stopped at Sweet Crunch Bake Shop for some great sandwiches.
We were very lucky to have wonderful snow, great weather and overall as good a weekend as you can ever have, and the Inn was definitely a large part of what made it so good. We are very glad we stayed here rather than in Stowe, and highly recommend it to anyone planning to ski at Trapp Family Lodge (or at one of the downhill places as other guests were).
