“STONE HILL INN STOWE , VT.”
Reviewed 11 October 2011

The Stone Hill Inn is the finest Inn we have stayed in for over 20 years of traveling to Vermont over the Columbus Day Weekend. Their attention to detail was such a pleasant surprise compared to the run of the mill chain operators..they actually care about their guests..from the service, to the accommodations, to the beautiful grounds and the walking trails that exceeded our expectations. Wait to you sink into their towels the size of blankets.. we just hope they "stay the course" and keep Stone Hill Inn the gem that it is. Sylvia & Lynn Wilkinson Corfu, NY

Room Tip: All rooms are the same but chose an end room for maximum quietness

This was our first experience staying at a B&B and it was amazing. We wanted to stay somewhere special and the Stone Hill was just perfect. When we arrived Kelly welcomed us and gave us the grand tour. She recommended a place to go for dinner and we mentioned that it was our 30th Anniversary. When we arrived back from dinner, there was a card and a box of chocolates waiting for us.....very sweet. Breakfast each morning was delicious. Skip is quite the cook. Sharon makes sure that you have whatever you need to enjoy your meal. Overall the Inn is a wonderful retreat from everyday life.

My new wife and I chose the Stone Hill Inn for our elopement after it popped up on a search for the best places to elope in New England. They lived up to the hype in every way. They gave us a thorough personal tour of the grounds and told us to do whatever we liked for our ceremony, hung the dress in the innkeeper's personal closet, altered the breakfast menu to offer 2 vegetarian options for us, and spent our wedding day making sure we had everything we needed including an extra room for me to get ready in. All of the little details like a kitchen stocked with free snacks and drinks to giving us a vase to take the bouquet home in were things that I have never been offered by even the nicest city hotels. This inn was a splurge for a special occasion, but my wife and I left feeling like it was worth every penny. We look forward to coming back soon!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sterling Room and loved it!

We stayed at 7 B&B's during our stay and this one really stood out. We had a great room with a door out to the beautiful garden. There are 2 swings hanging from the trees which were a lot of fun. Being in the juccuzi under the stars was lovely. The staff were great, and nothing was too much trouble.They went out of their way to make sure you had everything you needed. The food was great too. Sharon was very attentive and she liked to know your likes and dislikes (food wise), so that was great. It helped her and you got what you want.
Our bathroom was enormous, with a fireplace that went through to the bedroom. A huge jacuzzi bath and a shower cubicle too. Also a double sink unit and vey large mirror above.
It was our anniversary while we were there and they put a card in our room and a box of chocolates - how sweet! There was an eating place within walking distance, but I believe you had to cut through the trees. We decided to take the car purely because we had both been bitten a few times on our trip and did not want to risk getting bitten again! :-)

Room Tip: I think most rooms face the garden, but can't be sure.

We stayed here just one night. We have stayed in literally hundreds of inns, B&B's in Vt and around the world and as a haven for the evenings - this is in the top 10. The property has no views to speak of - but the rooms are well appointed, common areas are very spacious and comfortable and the staff are all pleasant, knowledgeable and professional. Small, but very well landscaped property to enjoy a cup of hot coffee or glass of wine. However, I was vastly underimpressed with their breakfast and evening snack. One of the things we always look forward to on our VT Inn stops in particular is the breakfast - the offerings were not that interesting and I ended up ordering eggs that came out cooked incorrectly the first time out. We are used to strong coffee, but can handle most brews in a pinch, so take this comment with that in mind - coffee was much too watery for our taste. So our breakfast experience, at these prices - was hard to accept - but it was only 1 day stay. Evening snack they offer was just a dip with some crackers. Tasty - but underwhelming for these prices again - if you want more taste before going out to eat - stop and get yourself some hearty Vt cheese and crackers, some wine and sit and enjoy your room or the beautiful common rooms at Stone Hill. Overall - a nice place to visit and experience - but at this price, probably would go to another spot for better breakfast and evening snacks. Yes - I would recommend - but with those caveats about food and views

The Inn is very clean, service is attentive and very friendly, everything stated on the web- site is true. The breakfast is really great so are the afternoon snacks. Just bear in mind that you need a car to go to the restaurants for dinner in the evenings (as the Inn does not do dinners). We did walk to Stowe village the first night, only after dark, it is a little bit difficult and uncomfortable to walk back as cars cannot see you clear and you have to walk next to the main road. Do remember to bring your own (alcoholic) drinks as well, as the B& B does not have a bar, of course you can buy something in Stowe if you like. If you would like to go for a hike, we can recommend the "sterling" trail. It is a nice workout and doesn't take too long (however, it is quite steep an hour up and then an hour down again). On Satuday's, there is a local market in Stowe village, with all kind of products from the region, was interesting to see and lots of locals and visitors, really a town happening (starts at 1pm and ends at 3pm). For dinner reservations you can ask the friendly inkeepers, however, if you really would like to have dinner at a specific restaurant we would recommend to make the reservation before arrival, as they might be fully booked. I think we would love to go back there in the winter ... when we can ski and relax in the luxurious room with all you can wish for afterwards.

My husband and I are frequent visitors to the Stone Hill Inn, and it consistently delivers exactly what is advertised. We use Stone Hill Inn as our escape to get "away from it all" and have some time for ourselves. This latest visit was just as good as the previous visits. You can't go wrong with any of their rooms as they are all nicely decorated and all have dual sided gas fireplaces and jacuzzi tubs. The innkeepers are super friendly and will go above and beyond to make your stay the best it can be. The center of town is about 2 miles away with plenty of places to eat, or you can order in (as we did). There is also a nice walking path, which has a parking lot not even a mile from the inn (you could walk there, but there's not much room on the side of the road). Breakfast is delicious and the 24 hour coffee/tea/soft drinks is a nice touch. We've visited other select registry inns and they have nothing on this place. Stone Hill Inn is perfect for relaxation and is truly for couples. Sharon, Skip, Darrick and Tony- thanks for another incredible stay. We can't wait to visit again!
