“A wonderful Vermont "Bed and Breakfast" experience!”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

Three of us, (my daughter,her husband and I) stayed one night at the Brass Lantern in Stowe, Vermont and we all agreed the whole experience was wonderful! From the moment Mary Anne greeted us we felt we'd been friends forever. Her warm demeanor and helpful suggestions for dining and attractions to visit in Stowe made our visit very enjoyable, considering how short we'd planned to stay in the area. The room was spacious, charming, super-clean and very Vermont-like. Breakfast was nicely prepared and served with elegance while maintaing that ""down home" charm. When we met George, (he was the chef and emerged from the kitchen to greet us) he was equally nice and friendly. Just before we left we mentioned we were planning to go to Stowe Mountain resort and Mary Anne quickly ran off and came back with coupons which saved us 25% off each attraction we wanted to do there! We'll definately be going back there on our next Vermont trip.

Sincerely,
Mr. Carmen Caramanica, Steve and Elizabeth Zumchak

We stayed at the Brass Lantern Inn the evenings of July 13th thru July 17th 2012. The Innkeepers and Owners, George and Mary Anne Lewis are wonderful hosts.
They both take a personal interest in their guests and are always willing to take extra time out
of their busy schedules to discuss attractions in the area. Also, to give you directions to your
destination.
The grounds at the inn are very well maintained by George and he Housekeeping is
impeccable. The rooms are very well furnished and comfortable. We were a little concerned
about potential noise levels being on a main road. However, this was not a problem at all and
the rooms are very quiet.
We found their breakfasts to be exceptional(prepared by George) and the service to be very
friendly, efficient and relaxed. Mary Anne also provides special homemade treats for guests
in the afternoon, including lemonade, ice tea, etc. On more than one occassion we " camped
out" at the serving table at 4:00. They were great!
Their recommendations as far as restaurants are concerned were very helpful and never a
disappointment. Their suggestions often coincided with those that we found on the Trip Advisor
website.
George and Mary Anne truly go the extra mile to provide a very warm and comfortable experience for their guests that you will never forget.

We enjoyed the opportunity to host you for your extended stay here in Stowe. We also enjoyed the time we had with you each afternoon at tea time to hear about your days' adventure - you filled each day. We missed that afternoon chat on your day of departure!

You two brought a wonderful and generous personality to our Inn. For that we are also very grateful and thankful.

We appreciate the very kind words.

Kindest Regards,

We traveled from Michigan to this Inn based on the Trip Advisor rating and we were more than pleased. The room was amazing and quiet. We were in Room 7. The sheets on the bed were amazing. We loved the breakfasts, the location and our helpful innkeepers. They didn't hover but offered amazing advice. We would definitely stay again if we were in Stowe.

We just returned from another delightful visit to the Stowe and the Brass Lantern. It was the 26th Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival, the flowers werein full bloom, the weather was terrific and we all had a great time. George and Mary Ann of the Brass Lantern continue to excel as inkeepers. You can see that they take a keen interest in their property and in their guests. The place was as neat a a pin, the reception was warm, afternoon treats were delicious, chocolates in bowls in the sitting room made me feel at home and the breakfast was quite a treat every morning.

This was our second visit and it certainly will not be our last. The Brass Lantern is located on the main road (Route 100) only a few minutes from Stowe village and just next door is a Shaws supermarket if you need to buy anything. Though it is on the main road, the rooms are quiet, cosy, clean and a good value. Furthermore, there were four (two adults and two teens) of us in a room with two queen beds and we did not feel crowded.

The Purely Patrick products sold by their special needs son is also a great product to support and makes an excellent gift. Truly very special folks with a truly special and down to earth inn in Stowe.

Thank you for your comments and especially for your return trip with your children! We feel very fortunate to be the current caretakers of this great place and your recognition is as they say, "icing on the cake."

And our son, Patrick, thanks you very much for the shout out of his little cottage business. What a treat to be able to share this with you and our other guests.

Best to you and your family,

What lovely place. George and Mary Ann make you feel at home at their Bed and Breakfast. It is a beautiful Inn - the room was wonderful - all comfy like home. We made ourselves at home in the family room, watching TV and reading magazines. It was so much nicer than sitting on a bed in a hotel room. And breakfast - what a treat. Home cooked and delicious. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay.

This was our first stay at a B&B anywhere, but could not imagine any being better than The Brass Lantern Inn. From the ideal location in Stowe, VT, to the comfortable rooms, to the delightful breakfast and afternoon treats, it was first class all the way. We were able to watch the 4th of July fireworks in Stowe from the deck of the Inn. Traveling can be very stressful, but George and Mary Anne no how to relieve the stress and make you feel right at home. Gracious hosts from the moment you walk through the door. Three people in our party were alumni of The Ohio State University, as is George. He took the time to do the O-H-I-O in front of The Brass Lantern Inn sign. If we ever return to Stowe, we will only stay at The Brass Lantern Inn.

What a great treat to provide you with your first Bed & Breakfast experience, and great fun to welcome fellow Buckeyes to Stowe, Vermont! It was also a wonderful time watching the 4th of July fireworks with you and our other guests from the back porch. "Small Town Independence Day Celebrations" at its best!

We very much appreciate these kind words and compliments but most importantly apprectiate the opportunity to be of service to you and make new friends.

We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back. "O-H,

We spent three nights at the Brass Lantern Inn at the end of May and had a wonderful time. George and Mary Anne were perfect hosts, and they pay attention to all of the little details that make a guest feel at home. The Inn is clean, well maintained and very comfortable, with beautiful views of Mt. Mansfield. Breakfast was superb. We were only there three days but felt like we were leaving close friends when we checked out. George and Mary Anne, and their family, are awesome. We feel it is the best B&B we have stayed at. Thanks for a great experience.

Thank you Ken and Pam, thank you very much these kind words! At the risk of sounding like a broken record we truly feel that the best perk of being an Innkeeper is the opportunity to meet guests that become our friends. Thank you for taking the time to let others know of your experience here at the Brass Lantern Inn. Oh, yes, and the second best perk as an Innkeeper; welcoming guests/friends back for another visit!

Happy Summer,
Mary Anne and George
