We stopped here for one night on our way from Boston to Stowe/Vermont. It's very basic but it served the purpose. It is. Clean, the bed is good and breakfast was really nice where a nice lady offered us eggs made to our request. Surely a good place for our one night there.

Caroline and Steve are two Brits who offer a warm welcome and comfort to travellers in their well equipped lodge. For skiers there's storage in the basement plus games tables while on the ground floor two very comfy lounges are available for all. In the garden there's a pool and a kids climbing frame which I'm sure is a bonus... More

The owners of this place are so kind, been here twice now and couldn't fault them at all!! It's a must if your wanting to stay somewhere family ran! The included breakfast that's on offer is a nice touch. Brilliantly cooked, I'd come here just for the pancakes. Fantastic location, with many restaurants close enough to give you a good... More

Cons: Caroline, the English woman at the front desk was not welcoming at all. She seemed very unhappy and really didn't want to be there. Food was not great and was a small section. Didn't have Vermont syrup! Beds were terrible. Ice machine broken. Hot tub was locked at all times. Pro: murder mystery part of the weekend was fun.... More

We attended the murder mystery at this Lodge...it was delightful experience, the staff were pleasant and accommodation were suitable for the area. Beds were a little stiff and not good for the back. All in all a wonderful time was had by all.

We had a wonderful stay here on route to Stowe. Unfortunately there wasn't much snow fall this year so we took the opportunity to explore the area. Caroline's knowledge of Vermont was very helpful and she was happy to help with directions. Our room was warm and cosy with a very comfortable double bed and beautiful views of the woodland... More

Very comfortable lodge with friendly accomodating staff. It is located close to many ski resorts, and easy to find. Nestled in the woods and complemented by the decor, this hidden treasure was just perfect for our trail-tired crew. The kids even had BUNK BEDS! Great breakfast offering with endless coffee, and ambiance. I highly recommend giving their lodge a try!

Great place, great location & great hosts! This is a modest, but clean lodge. It is somewhat dated, but it is clean and the surroundings are lovely. I will be back an recommend it to all. Thanks to Steve & Caroline!
