This was my first visit to Stowe, and most certainly will not be my last. We had planned the trip for my birthday, not realizing that our dates coincided with peak foliage season. As such, many of the places we looked at were well out of our budget for this trip. I stumbled across the website for the Auberge de Stowe just as we were about to give up entirely. It seemed to be just what we were looking for: affordable, clean, and close to everything we wanted to do.
Upon arriving, I was not disappointed. We were greeted by the owners, Shawn and Chantal, who showed up to our room, gave us an overview of the area, and gave us some suggestions for dinner. We stayed in room 6. The room was simple, but quaint, clean, and well-maintained. We had a small TV and access to free wifi.
All the rooms have their own bathrooms. The water pressure and temperature in the shower were very good. Our bathroom was showing some signs of age, but was meticulously clean.
Breakfast was fantastic. We feasted on croissants and homemade jam along with whatever else Chantal had made that morning. The inn is well placed and just a short walk from the center of Stowe. We found plenty to do within a short distance, and a number of good restaurants.
For the price, the in itself is good value, particularly for its two star rating. However, what makes the Auberge de Stowe outstanding are the innkeepers. Chantal and Shawn were excellent hosts, eager to make sure we made the most of our trip. We ended up following most of Shawn's suggestions, and were not disappointed once. The Auberge de Stowe is an unpretentious gem!
