“Stowe Ski Vacation”

Not your everyday B&B. More like a Swiss Chalet with exceptional hosts. Quiet retreat for tired legs after a long day enjoying the beauty of Vermont. The rooms were well appointed and the king bed was exceptionally comfortable. The fresh baked cookies were a real treat. The bathroom was very spacious and the Jacuzzi tub was just what we needed after a long day on the slopes. We will be back for sure.

“Lovely Weekend Getaway”

Have been going annually to the Stone Hill Now for 8 years and love it every time. Exceptional staff, very helpful with every detail, rooms are gorgeous. Love the in wall fireplace between the room/bathroom. Close to the mountain for skiing or the town for delicious meals and shopping. We feel like we are visiting old friends each year and love it every time.

New England Mountain Town Accolades

We’re thrilled to announce that Stowe, Vermont has once again been recognized for its beauty! Yankee Magazine named Stowe as one of the Prettiest Mountain towns in New England highlighting our quintessential Vermont town’s brick and clapboard homes, white-spired church and covered bridge. Describing Stowe as a skiers’ paradise, Yankee Magazine recognized the welcoming spirit of our town inviting visitors to shop, dine and play. Also recognized are the stunning views of the wilderness in C.C. Putnam State Forest from Stowe.

Vermont-Winter-Getaways-Best-Winter-Town

Stowe – Best Winter Town in New England

For this prestigious ranking, Yankee Magazine considered each town’s winter recreation, scenery, and vibrant tourism infrastructure that made weekend, or longer, trips fun for everyone (whether looking for skiing and snowboarding, traipsing along snowy trails, or simply dining by firelight). Not surprisingly, Stowe, Vermont came out at the top!

Featured in Yankee Magazine’s “10 Best Winter Towns in New England” article is Stowe’s ample backcountry routes, including the state-long Catamount Trail, the longest public ski trail in North America. Of course, Mount Mansfield is touted for its expert slopes and its newer ski trails and lifts recently created to better serve beginners and families. Also, mentioned is the most celebrated winter carnival in New England, Stowe Winter Carnival.

“Best place for a Ski Trip to Stowe”

The rooms are fabulous, comfy beds and plenty of space. We stayed at the Stone Hill Inn over MLK Weekend for a ski trip to Stowe . It was perfect – the breakfast was always delicious. It was a pleasure enjoying breakfast everyday in a sunny room looking over the snowy property. The property is nice, secluded from traffic and very cozy inside. The location is great, just a quick drive to the mountain, you can skip all the traffic. And, easy drive into town. The bathroom was great, the Jacuzzi tubs are just what you need after skiing all day. We enjoyed having the in-room fire place! We will be staying at the Stone Hill Inn every time we come to Stowe!
