“Friendly and hospitable inn”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

From the dog escorting us into the office, to the owners going out of their way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay, this is a great place in Stowe. The room was VERY spacious and comfortable. Sure, the room could use some updating, but it was clear that the furnishing were top quality in their day. The view from the window was an added, unexpected bonus.

The breakfast was a notch above what most hotels serve for continental breakfast. But the best part of breakfast was the attention given by the owners, making sure we knew what we wanted to do for the day. Their advice was practical, rather than spurned by the desire to send us to the tourist traps.

We were in town for a wedding. Our room was NOT CLEANED because we requested service at the "oh so late hour" of 1PM...early afternoon! We had hung the "do not disturb" sign on the door that morning because we were only out briefly for breakfast and a trip to town. We thought they'd have more time to clean our room after we left for the day at 1PM, at which time we hung the "please clean" sign. WE HAD NO IDEA THE HOUSEKEEPER HAD GONE FOR THE DAY! There was no verbal or written notification of that policy. So we returned at 10PM to unmade beds and wet towels! The owner was very unapologetic, sarcastically stating "we don't have 24 hour housekeeping service." The only thing she did to remedy the problem was to bring us clean towels. When I suggested an adjustment in our bill to compensate for this inconvenience, she said "I'll take that under advisement", but was again sarcastic, and had no intention of doing so. The rates were very high for what is your average motel, especially well before peak season. One would expect flexible accommodations and a pleasant attitude to follow. A very disappointing experience!

During a recent ladies weekend at a timeshare resort, we decided to have dinner at the Hob Knob Inn. I can't say enough how much we enjoyed the evening. First off, the staff was friendly and more than accommodating. The signature drinks were fabulous and the meal was the best I've had in months. The scallops wrapped in bacon were delightful and the filet cooked to perfection. The ambiance is cozy Vermont. I will definitely return the next time I am in town.

I would really love to say that this place deserves four-stars because it is managed by a very nice family. The restaurant is nice and the service is pretty good. It is a very well managed property. However, the rooms are outdated and are missing some basic amenities. There is no way this can be attributed to being "rustic". For the money they charge (top season surcharge is accounted for), not really a great value for your dollar. A huge plus is that they are very dog friendly, but make sure you book in advance and call to confirm.

Room Tip: Try to get a bigger room with a wood burning stove. No matter what room you stay in, check your brak...

The Hob Knob was some what economical but it did lack amenities. There was no refridgerator or microwave or iron and ironing board in the room. and the two chairs were older and uncomfortable. It is located back from the road and was quiet and had beautiful grounds. The breakfast that was offered was adequate, but did not offer much variety.... oatmeal, small amount of fruit, cold cereal, toast and small muffins. The owners were nice.

My husband and I attended the Antique Car Show in Stowe last weekend and the town was full of excitement, lots of people, and hundreds of old cars everywhere! We chose the Hob Knob Inn because it is not far from the show grounds and the town center, and it is on a hill surrounded by nature, and away from the very busy Mountain Road. Our bed was comfortable; the large room was clean; and the outdoor (unheated) pool was refreshing. A simple continental breakfast is included in the price. Barbara and Kate are terrific hostesses, who make you feel welcome!

Room Tip: Room #12 has the air conditioner from the room next door attached to the building in such a way that...

Green Features: Happy that this Inn separates trash so items are recycled. We all need to think about our impact on Mother Nature.

My wife and I stayed here in late July. Very attracted to the fact we were located up the hill (about 300 feet)from Route 108( the main road leading to Stowe). Barbara and Kate do an excellent job running the family motel. Not a Comfort Inn or name brand motel- and we like it that way. Clean rooms and bedding all in order.
We stayed on the ground level( we arrived on 2 motorcycles) of the 2 level building( this faced two cute ponds with ducks and a bullfrog I heard in the morning. just awesome!
They have a restaurant on site but only offer suppers on Thurs, Fri and Saturday. I hear it's fabulous. Sorry we could not sample this time.
Free continental breakfast( better than most places) just added to the good value here.

We'll be back
