Brass Lantern Inn
Ranked #2 of 22 Stowe B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 June 2012

Loved staying here.

We felt totally at home in this warm and cozy B&B. Mary Anne was welcoming, super helpful, and warm. George was also extremely friendly and warm. When I asked Mary Anne where the nearing laundromat was, she offered to put in a load of laundry herself (this happened to be a day where there were fewer customers - not a standard service offered by the inn!) I'd 6 stars for going the extra mile if I could.

The inn has beautiful common space inside and outside. The back of the inn has stunning views of the mountains. The most coveted breakfast table looks out directly through large windows. There is some sporting equipment laying arund, and there is also a very nice hot tub outside! The innkeepers are very knowledgeable. The is especially helpful for small towns, where not all attractions have made it into yelp yet.

Breakfast stood out as delicious, even compared to other B&B's which had great offerings. Accommodating for a vegetarian was no problem.

Our room was very nice and well-sized, if perhaps a bit rustic. Having the AC was nice during a hot spell in May.

Wifi was fast and solid.

Getting into town requires driving about 1/3 of a mile (or a walk along the shoulder of the rural highway). Stowe is extremely small, but a really lovely small town. Everybody seemed to know each other.

Would not hesitate to stay again. We may even plan a future trip around getting a chance to stay here again.

Eric and Jessica.

"Loved staying here" - Perfect, as that is exactly what we hoped you would feel from your stay! Thank you for your recognition of our service. And we really are very happy to hear of your plans to return. You seem to have found from your stay that sense of place/home that we call Stowe.

Best wishes and we look forward to welcoming you back,

My boyfriend and I just got back from a weekend in Stowe and had the privilege of staying at the Brass Lantern Inn. We just fell in love with place. We were greeted with open arms by the nicest people, Mary Ann and George. The inn was charming, very clean and breakfasts were awesome. The views were magnificent, the little town of Stowe was lovely. Can't wait to go back again. John and Carmela (Montreal,Canada).

Thanks John and Carmela - it was truly our pleasure to host you this spring. We really enjoyed the exchange of stories each evenings. You two certainly added some sparkle to our Inn! We very much hope to see you two again (and perhaps next time "with your friends"!).

Our Very Best Wishes,

My husband and I had been working very hard lately and just wanted an over night get away, but didn't want to travel too far (we live in NH). The hostess was warm, friendly, and welcoming when we arrived.The inn itself was nicely decorated and very clean. The food was delicious, the views spectacular, the location was not walking distance to town, but it was very close, and our room was very comfortable and pleasant. The only thing we had a problem with was that the bed was too soft for us. We have a very firm (probably too firm for most people) bed at home, so any other bed will always feel too soft. When we came back to the inn after dinner we were invited to a "sing-a-long," to which we had a very nice time. It was very informal, local musicians brought music and a couple played the beautiful baby grand piano and the sweetest little 99 year old lady played her accordian, sang, and recited poetry. What a hoot! The conversation was interesting, the snacks delicious, and there were lots of laughs. We will definitely go back there, and would highly recommend this B&B to anyone.

My husband and I just returned from a weekend in Stowe and had the great privilege of staying at the Brass Lantern Inn! We arrived for our first visit to Stowe quite weary from the stresses of life and were immediately comforted when we stepped inside the Brass Lantern Inn. Mary Anne greeted us like she'd known us for years with her warm and friendly personality. The warmth continued as we saw our room which had a cozy bed, a gas fireplace, and an incredible view of Mt. Mansfield. Unfortunately George was out of town for the weekend so we didn't get to meet him, but Mary Anne remained incredibly attentive throughout our stay, checking-in with us often to see if we needed anything. Mary Anne was able to figure us out pretty quickly, thus giving recommendations throughout the weekend for restaurants and activities that were a perfect fit! She's a fantastic cook, too, and even adjusted the fresh fruit plate she brought to me on the second day based on the fruit I'd left on my plate the day before--not even my mother remembers that I've never liked blueberries and pineapple! When you stay here, expect great rooms, great views, great food, and incredible hospitality. I can't wait for our next visit!

We spent one night at the Brass Lantern and had a fantastic experience. The room was lovely, the location was desirable, and the innkeepers charming! The breakfast was absolutely delicious and I would highly recommend the B&B with no reservations. Enjoy!

A big "Thank You" to our neighbors on the other side of Mt. Mansfield. We appreciated the opportunity to host you with the added bonus of having you here for your husband's birthday! We're hopeful that we will see you both again, "Neighbors."

We stayed at the Brass Lantern for two nights in March 2012. The entire experience was delightful. The hosts were very accomadating and welcoming. We staying in Room #1 which was more than adequate. The breakfasts were delightful, with plenty of selections. The fresh cookies in the afternoon were over the top.
The hosts were also very informative regarding restaurant recommendations and activities planning.
We enjoyed our visit to the Brass Lantern very much, and we will certainly stay at the same location the next time we visit Stowe.
P.S., the view from the hot tub on the back deck is out of this world.

Room Tip: Room #1 was great!

Thank you so much for taking the time to compliment our efforts to create the kind of stay you describe. Room 1 - Spruce Peak is definitely one of our most requested rooms and thanks to your comments we are sure it will remain that way for the foreseeable future! Thanks.

And Mary Anne was thrilled to read that you enjoyed the afternoon tea and cookies.

We hope to see you back soon - just let us know when you would like to stay in your room again!

Kindest Regards,
George and Mary Anne

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights at this charming B&B. We enjoyed the warm hospitality provided by Mary Anne and George. They are very knowledgeable regarding the surroundings and can always recommend a restaurant or activity in the area. We loved waking up to the delicious breakfasts each morning and the beautiful view of Mt. Mansfield. The inn provided a great location for skiing at Stowe and was also close enough for a day trip to Smuggler's Notch. The living room with the fireplace was a nice place to relax after a day of skiing. We also enjoyed the hot tub at night with the beautiful view of the stars. Although the room that we stayed in was small, it was warmly decorated, cozy, and clean. We highly recommend this B&B to others wishing to stay in the Stowe area!

Thank you very much for your wonderful comments and extended stay. Isn't that view of Mt. Mansfield incredible? That was one of the selling features to us when considering ownership of the B&B. We appreciate the kind words and truly hope we have the opportunity to host you again!
