“Best place ever”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Sun & Ski Inn & Suites was a wonderful weekend home last wkd in June. The owner went out of her way to bring us Nutella from her own home when my 8 yo requested it. She and her husband went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable, the view from the back yard was amazing and the swimming pool was clear, clean and the perfect temperature. The front desk employee kept it open an extra 30 minutes for us to swim when we checked in. We played putt putt golf at the mini golf at the foot of the parking lot - beautiful course with waterfall and friendly staff. Will be returning again soon!

Room Tip: The loft rooms look spacious and lovely.

After a 6+ hour drive up to Vermont and a stop at Ben & Jerry's and the Old Cider Mill Inn in Waterbury which is about 15 minutes from Stowe, we checked into our room at the Sun & Ski Inn and Suites. It was located in the heart of Stowe on Mountain Road. Our Patio-Two Queen Bed sized room accommodated my family of four. The room was extremely clean and large. The room had a sliding door which opened up in the back to a large lawn and river where you could sit and relax. Everyone found some kind of activity to do which included an indoor pool to swim and mini-golf which is part of the property (a guest receives $2 per person off the regular price). The mini-golf is not your normal course with the windmills, etc. It is a replica of a real golf course with sand traps and is challenging but fun. The property is right across the street from an access point for the Stowe recreation path which is 5 miles long and is perfect for walking or bicycling (we ended spending a few hours bicycling on the path). There are several stores on Mountain Road which rent all types of bicycles. A continental breakfast is also offered which includes cold cereals, muffins, toast, oatmeal, apple and orange juice, as well as coffee. Additionally, it is conveniently located near all of the restaurants on Mountain Road for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We have stayed in the Green Mountain Inn on a prior visit to Stowe and I much rather stay here at Sun & Ski Inn.

My family and I spent the night just passing through. I have stayed at many properties in my years from 4 star hotels in Vegas to side of the road motels and I can honestly say that I have never seen a cleaner room in all my stays. On top of that the staff was over the top friendly and courteous. I never intended to go Stowe on vacation but might return, just for another stay at this motel.

After a 6 hour drive up to VT from NJ and a stop at Ben & Jerry's where we ate a Vermonster sundae, we anxiously wanted to check-in to our room. Our drive to Sun & Ski was only 15 mins or less away from the 4 mile trail of VT taste-testing tourist activities. It was perfectly placed in the heart of Stowe attractions. Our loft-sized room accommodated my family (party of 6). Everyone found some kind of activity to do on site (hot tub, pool, library, & mini-golf). In the pool, we met Canadians traveling with young children & their dog, rugby tournament international athletes, and more American tourists. Everyone felt at home, at ease, and welcomed. The complimentary breakfast was simple, fresh, and delicious. We only stayed one night and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Loft sized room best for adult travelers, stairs are steep & possibly dangerous for small childr...

Loved this place, it really is worth going there for so many reasons...particularly the nature...very relaxing...with the river behind it, and bunnies around. Room was fine, bed was fine...home made granola and pastries breakfast was OUTSTANDING, front desk people awesome, pool and hot tub terrific, clean...bath towels should be wider (and I'm not obese); I wish they had put bird seed in the bird feeder outside of room 8 so we could have enjoyed seeing them fly to the feeder from our beds; my 1 absolute need to improve suggestion is the bath/shower!! The handle/faucet: Very difficult to manipulate, and I stooped over for a good long time each time to try to find the hot/warm water temperature...very very hard to regulate; Also very important to put strips in the tub or a tub mat as you can go flying from the soap and nothing down there.I would love to return, but this aspect of the temperature and tub handle/faucet and tub needs to be addressed.

Room Tip: They all face the river in the back and it's so relaxing, but the tubs are the same probably in...

My family and I spent 4 nights recently at this motel. We chose to stay in a room with the loft. My kids are teenagers and the larger beds were welcomed. The room was clean and large and the sliding doors overlooked a nicely kept lawn and a babbling brook. I really enjoyed sitting by the brook and relaxing. We decided not to partake in the complimentary breakfast since the food that was offered wasn't to our liking. Had a comfortable stay and I would stay there again. Just a few nits: the TV was in a place that was awkward and we couldn't watch it as a family unless we were sitting on the stairs to the loft. The sink handles were difficult to use and the shower was hooked up backwards, left was cold and the right was hot.

I don't usually get carried away by an overnight motel stay, but Sun and Ski Inn and Suites filled the bill in every way. The motel room, common areas like the lounge, and the expansive creek- side grounds were clean, neat, and well cared for. Each room has a back porch facing a wide lawn and the river with its banks of interesting and various small stones. We found rope hammocks under the trees, chairs on our porch, and picnic tables and choirs scattered on the lawn. While we didn't use the pool, the pool-house appeared clean and well-maintained. Before leaving, we played a round on their miniature golf course--no clown's mouth here or windmills--just 18 fun holes of little hills, doglegs, boulders and sand traps. Breakfast, while continental, offered a thoughtful variety of cereals, muffins, toast, fruits and juices, along with the expected fine Vermont coffee. Not pretentious or upscale--but quiet, peaceful, relaxing and clean. We'll be back.
