Stone Hill Inn: Romantic Getaway for Vermonters

We love our guests! Here’s what a few recent guests shared on TripAdvisor about our Romantic Vermont Inn.
 
what-couples-are-saying

“Best Romantic Getaway in Vermont”

My partner and I finally found our ideal romantic getaway in the Stone Hill Inn. The quiet inn caters to couples only and each of the rooms has a fireplace and Jacuzzi tub. As Vermonters, our idea of escaping to an inn means hiding out from life at an inn where we can just be together. We had an in-room double massage and even ordered take-out. There was ample space in the room for us to use WiFi to do yoga and meditate and we loved being able to walk/snowshoe right from our room door. Private seating at breakfast kept our experience intimate and we took advantage of the large living room to watch movies from the huge library and had the space all to ourselves. Kristie and Todd were helpful and attentive when needed, but not hovering as can be the case at some establishments. So many inns or resorts only have the top-priced rooms with both a Jacuzzi and fireplace, while the Stone Hill Inn’s nine rooms all include these features, and for a better price than other comparable rooms in the area.

“Fabulous Romantic Getaway”

My second visit and it was everything I remembered and more. The grounds are serene, rooms are spacious and cozy, and breakfasts were delectable. Wonderful central location and Todd and Kristie were the ideal hosts. We cannot wait to return again!

Please note:
Vermont guests are now able to stay at Stone Hill Inn with no restrictions.

We’ve been hard at work adapting to this new normal and preparing for your next relaxing, peaceful, healthy, AND safe visit. (We’ve even been recognized by Trip Savvy for our efforts.)

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 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.
Lori J, New Hampshire

“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.
TripAdvisor Guest from New York City, NY

 

“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.

“All in all, I couldn’t recommend this place enough!”

My husband and I booked the Stone Hill Inn for our honeymoon. After staying there for four nights, I can honestly say that we picked an amazing location! Todd and Kristie are simply the best–very helpful and they clearly care about their guests’ experience. We booked the honeymoon package and had a great time at the chocolate making class provided by Laughing Moon Chocolates and dinner at Michael’s on the Hill. The couples’ massage and rose petal turn down were great features as well!

Come for the Mountain; Stay in Romantic Luxury at Stone Hill Inn

Looking for Stowe Mountain Lodging?

Stone Hill Inn is a couples-only Stowe lodging option for your spring Vermont skiing getaway. Located nine minutes from skiing and six minutes from downtown Stowe, we’re the perfect retreat to get-away and relax after exciting days out in the snow.

AMAZING STAY IN STOWE! The Inn is welcoming, warm and beautiful, the breakfasts were amazing, the location is perfect. We will most certainly return to this little slice of heaven!!! TripAdvisor Review March 2018


 

Breakfast in a Snow Globe


Breakfast is obviously a favorite at Stone Hill Inn.
Guests comment that eating breakfast with fresh falling snow is like eating in a snow globe. We agree!

 

Our dining room features 14′ ceilings, 40 windows and individual tables for each guest room. Fresh fruit, home baked breads, muffins, and coffee cakes, gluten free options, homemade granola and yogurt. That’s just the start. The eggs are always fresh; the syrup (Grade A: Med Amber) is always warmed. Sunshine, snow, coffee and delicious breakfast aromas announce the beginning of the day.

**Don’t let diet restrictions keep you from enjoying time away and our lovely Stowe bed and breakfast. We’re happy to make your stay perfect in every way we can. With advanced notice, we are able to prepare AIP friendly meals, as well as meet restrictions for Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian, and Pescatarian diets.

Perfect Winter Getaway! The inn is a quiet and peaceful place to stay, unlike the huge resorts, yet still right in the heart of Stowe. Fantastic gourmet breakfasts, freshly baked cookies everyday, local recommendations, and excellent conversation. We look forward to returning! TripAdvisor Review April 2018

Stone Hill Inn is Yankee Magazine’s ‘Best of New England’ for Romantic Getaway

May 24, 2017, 9:05 am.

STOWE, Vt.(BusinessWire)—Yankee Magazine’s “Best of New England” travel guide has named Stone Hill Inn the 2017 Editors’ Choice for Romantic Getaway, noting, “Luxury is the hallmark of this couples-only retreat nestled on nearly 10 acres in the heart of Stowe.”

Kristie Roling, who took ownership of the B&B with her husband, Todd, last December, said, “We fell in love with the romanticism of the gardens, the rooms and the seclusion, and love to share it with other couples, who often come to celebrate a special milestone in their lives.”

“Nearly half our guests come to celebrate an event–a proposal, an engagement, a wedding, an elopement, a honeymoon, an anniversary or a birthday,” agreed Todd Roling, who added, “But Stone Hill Inn is the perfect spot for couples to just spend time together recharging and reconnecting in a romantic escape from their hectic daily lives.”


To encourage more couples to do this, the inn has created a special add-on room package for stays of at least two nights. It includes:

$120 certificate toward dinner for two at chef-owned, from-farm-to-table Michael’s on the Hill;
A dozen long-stemmed roses;
Chocolate (local) truffles;
Candle-lit, silk-rose-petal turndown service; and
Late checkout (additional 90 minutes).
