Older, but nicely kept lodge. Owners couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Clean comfortable bed and room. Nice breakfast selections, one of the best values in the area. Would definitely recommend and return. Short drive to downtown Stowe.

Greeted by the owner who was extremely friendly and helpful. My efficiency room was very clean and fully stocked with all amenities for cooking. Delicious breakfast buffet every morning with various choices. Indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, game room and laundry room made the lodge even better. Complimentary coffee and homemade cookies throughout the day was a wonderful touch. Will... More

This was a really comfortable place to stay on our road trip. The owners Michael and Shannon were very welcoming and we got a free upgrade which was a nice surprise. The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable and best of all was the cooked breakfast with plenty of choice. I imagine it would be very popular with... More

We were unsure what to expect after reading the mostly positive but somewhat mixed reviews, so pulled up to this motel with trepidation. The very friendly owner's warm welcome assured us that all was well, but seeing our basic (but clean) room made us understand where other reviewers were coming from. This is a clean, very friendly motel - but... More

This is a basic lodge which is in need of some refurbishment. The room had everything we needed but the furniture and decor was in need of some tlc and the room could have been cleaner with cobwebs in various places, stains on the curtains. Having said that, we slept well and the location of the lodge is good for... More

We stayed one night during our foliage trip to Stowe and had a very pleasant stay. It was very clean, comfortable beds, good coffee available all the time and the hosts were very friendly and helpful! They offer breakfast although we had to leave before it was served because we were doing an early morning photo shoot. Nothing fancy but... More

Breakfast was Awesome and included. Inn keepers Shannon and Michael are very helpful! Rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable. We stayed for 2 nights to visit my son or son at Norwich. Although a bit of a drive, it was worth it!

We stayed at this place for 2 nights and from the moment we entered our run down room, we tried to spend as little time in it as possible. The whole interior and furniture looks old and like nobody put in an effort. E.g. the bathroom fittings did come out of holes in the wall. The cleanliness of the room... More
