We’ve been hard at work adapting to this new normal and preparing for your next relaxing, peaceful, healthy AND safe visit. We are following the latest guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the Vermont Department of Public Health.

We’re the Ideal Social Distancing Getaway

We’ve always thought our 9 acres were the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of the busy city and suburban life. Now we know it is. Our 9 guest rooms are spread across the property in a way that makes social distancing easy and natural. Your visit to Stone Hill Inn will feel safe and secure. And because we are a private property, we can easily manage the flow of guests and other visitors to protect your privacy and health.

General Protocols

We look forward to welcoming you back (or for the first time). While your overall experience will be as delightful as usual, there are some changes you should expect, including:

  • Guest room management that allows maximum time between guest stays.
  • A modified arrivals process that follows social distancing guidelines, or contactless arrival and departure. Upon check-in, we will no longer give a tour of the building, but rather tell our guests about our property’s spaces and amenities.
  • Hand sanitizer stations throughout the property.
  • Temporary suspension of late checkouts and early arrivals.

Our Commitment to You

We are taking the following steps to optimize safety:

  • We are wearing masks at all times and following recommended social distancing practices faithfully, including no-contact behaviors with guests (sadly, no more hugs or handshakes).
  • Sanitizing surfaces rigorously and continuously.
  • Frequently washing hands and using hand sanitizer between washings.
  • Maximizing natural ventilation in all spaces when practical.

Our Housekeeping Protocols

We have always prided ourselves on maintaining a pristine environment for your enjoyment.

We are so fortunate to have Tony, who is one of very few Registered Executive Housekeepers in the United States, leading the way in our cleaning. This year, Tony has taken additional courses including GBAC’s Online Fundamentals Training Course emphasized on SARS-CoV-2/COVID 19, a Master Certificate in Business Management and VOSHA’s training for methods of protection from COVID-19 virus in the workplace; Tony is also a Registered Environmental Services Executive (requires 30 hours of continuing education every 2 years).

At Stone Hill Inn, we’re doubling down by:

  • Providing spray bottles of hand sanitizer in all common areas of the Inn and we will wipe down all common areas 3 times a day with EPA approved product.
  • Wearing masks at all times, even while cleaning.
  • Enhanced cleaning protocols in all common spaces and continual cleanings of high-touch surfaces throughout the day.
  • We have suspended evening turn-down services.
  • Daily in-room housekeeper will only enter your room if you request them to do so for towels and amenities.

Breakfast Protocols

We have taken important steps to keep you safe while dining, including:

  • Establishing strict table and chair cleaning protocols between guests’ seating.
  • Breakfast will have 4 seating options. This will ensure that there are no more than 3 couples in the dining room at one time. Times will be 8am, 8:30am, 9am, 9:30am. At check-in, guests will indicate their breakfast dining choice for each day of their stay.

Activity Protocols

While we aim to make your visit as close to normal as possible, we have had to make some changes to guest activities.

Umiak and other companies are running most tours with minimal adjustments. The city of Stowe is evaluating canceling some festivals, however, it will continue to hold the beloved Sunday Farmers Market as well as keep open all Stowe Land Trust trails. Our world-class breweries are open and we encourage individual and couple activities like walking, hiking, biking, kayaking, fly fishing and golfing.

We will encourage social distancing in all common areas of the Inn, however, the Inn is large and allows for more than 1 couple to enjoy common areas safely at the same time.

What We Ask of You

If during your stay, you fall ill, we request that you seek immediate medical attention and notify us. We ask that you wear a mask whenever you enter public buildings on the property, for your safety and that of our team.

If before your visit you are not feeling well and show any symptoms of Covid-19 (fever, dry cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell), please stay home and stay safe. We will happily re-book your stay.

Guests staying with us are required to fill out a Certificate of Compliance by the State of Vermont in compliance with the “Be Smart, Stay Safe Executive Order” Stone Hill Inn will provide the form after a reservation is made.

If you need to change your reservation, we are more than happy to move you to a different date (up to 2-years out)! We will also upgrade the reservation at no charge, when available. We understand these are unprecedented times and we will remain flexible and willing to help as best we can. Please review our Cancellation Policy.

Thank you. We look forward to your visit.

SPECIAL

Purchase your gift certificate by calling us and we’ll make your Gift Certificate 110% of the purchase price!

For instance, purchase a gift certificate for $300 and you’ll receive a gift certificate valued at $330.

As a local small business, we are so thankful for any and all support our guests continue to give us! If you would like to stay with us, but are unsure of a future date, please consider purchasing a gift certificate to use at a later time.

As our current situation changes, we will keep you abreast of any changes here at the Inn. In the meantime, we would love to hear from you! Please show your love on any of our social media platforms. We offer our sincere wishes for the safety and health of you and yours.

Sincerely,
Todd and Kristie Roling
Owners, Stone Hill Inn

“Great Job Ensuring Safety”

Amazing Weekend. We love the Stone Hill Inn. This was our third stay at the inn, and everything was perfect. Todd and Kristie have done such a great job ensuring the safety of their guest while allowing you to enjoy the beauty of the inn and grounds. Our room was immaculate, hand sanitizer is available throughout the inn, and there is enough open space to enjoy the property and still keep your distance from other guests. It was lovely to be able to have an evening cocktail overlooking the waterfall after a long day of outdoor activity. We will certainly be back soon.

“First hotel stay since COVID hit. I felt very safe”

The only complaint – wish we stayed longer! Hope to be back. What a beautiful place. Very clean (this was our first hotel stay since COVID hit and I felt very safe). Every small detail is thought of. Really comfortable beds. (Gas) fireplace (so cozy!). Jacuzzi. Delicious fresh breakfast. Very warm and personal welcome by the owners. Beautiful grounds. Everything was impeccable and we really enjoyed our stay.

“Private Socially Distanced Meal”

Great getaway, such a great place. The owners are welcoming. The room was gorgeous. They even planned breakfast so we all had a private socially distanced meal. The grounds are well kept and the waterfall is beautiful. We felt so at home and everything was perfect.

“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.

“Couple’s Massage (Heavenly by the Way)”

Picturesque, Peaceful, and Wonderfully Romantic We stayed at Stone Hill Inn for our 10th wedding anniversary. From the moment we booked the reservation we were thrilled with Kristie and Todd’s attentiveness. Their assistance in booking our couple’s massage (heavenly by the way), dinner reservations, and guided hike (amazing time with a superb guide) was a wonderful treat. We had not a thing to worry or stress about. Our room was spectacular with a great view of the gardens and waterfall. Breakfast was catered to my fussy eating and was delicious. We were so thrilled with our stay we have already booked to go back and have even added another night. We highly recommended Stone Hill Inn. As we’ve been lucky enough to travel the world this gem in our backyard was a wonderful surprise.

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!
