My husband and I went for our second wedding anniversary. We wanted to explore Vermont and the Brass Lantern Inn was the perfect place to stay as it was right on the outskirts of the town of the Stowe. The hosts were extremely friendly and you felt instantly like family. The room was super clean and very charming. We had a gas fireplace in our room which made it so cozy. The breakfasts were homemade by the owner and were delicious. To show how kind and accomodating the hosts were: we had accidentally left one of our belongings in the room when we left and they mailed it to our home address on their own time and dime. Would highly reccommend staying there for some good R&R or a weekend get away!
The resort was nicely located near town, great restaurants and a few miles away from the Von Trapp Resort and ski mountains. Overall our stay was very nice. The main lobby and breakfast area were nicely appointed and the breakfast was fresh and yummy. Our room was very spacious and cozy (we had the two floor suite). The room was equipped with fireplace, kitchen/dinning area, two bathrooms and jacuzzi. Some updates were noticable, but overall the room was stuck in the 80's. The only other nitpick if you will, is the outdoor jacuzzi was not very inviting as it was cramped in a corner back deck with ice/snow banks around it. All-in-all it was a nice place and would certainly stay there again.
The staff was lovely and gave great recommendation for a weeks worth of activities and local dining. The room and grounds were very cute. My only comment would be that the breakfast was a bit lack luster for something that is considered a B&B. An upgrade to nicer yogurt and artisanal bread would be enough.
Fabulous welcoming hosts, Beautiful homely Vermont accommodation with wonderful views. Amazing breakfasts & lovely complimentary afternoon tea. Completed the whole Vermont Experience. Would definitely stay here again.
I'm actually torn about writing a review. While my boyfriend and I had a fantastic visit, I don't necessarily want to tell the whole world and spoil this wonderful, secret find! The inn is cozy, charming and warm, the innkeepers are wonderful hosts, and breakfast could not have been more satisfying and delicious. We stayed in a compact room since we were only in Stowe for one night. As their room description discloses, it was a tiny space- but it was perfect for our short stay. If we were staying longer (which we will in the future) we would recommend getting a larger room.
Some areas have been updated and it seems this property has a lot of potential. Grand room is cozy and the grounds are beautiful. However, the guest room we stayed in was very outdated and dirty.
Rooms and hotel facilities good. Big, clean comfy rooms. Public rooms, grounds and pool all good. Reception a bit amateurish. Breakfast not great. Does not match image and expectation of hotel. Small selection of cheap looking food.......... but would stay again.........
This was our first experience at a Bed & Breakfast. The room was great, excellent décor. The service from the Innkeepers was excellent. The food was great, and they accommodated me regarding some of my diet preferences. I would recommend a stay here to anyone wanting to stay in this area.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Fitch Inn. Julie and John were the perfect hosts. Breakfast was filling and delightful each day. The room we stayed in was the New Hampshire Suite and it was perfect. The whirlpool tub was excellent and I cannot say enough about how comfortable the room was. Both Julie and John made conversation with us in the morning during breakfast and it made us both feel welcomed and started our day off perfectly. The inn is very peaceful and it was very easy to sleep there. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay.
We stayed at Northern Lights Lodge one night on our trip. The lodge is nice with a rustic flavor. Our room which was a deluxe in the main lodge was very roomy. The home cooked breakfast the next morning was delicious and is included in your room price. There is a very nice river in the back with chairs to sit and enjoy the scenery. We arrived early but we were able to check in as our room was ready.
This is a beautiful place with incredible amenities-peaceful indoor pool and sauna and hot tubs throughout the property. My room was very private and I didn't hear a peep from anyone else and it had a balcony overlooking the beautiful grounds. Will definitely stay here again when in the area. The website doesn't do it justice and the price was lower than places with far fewer amenities. This does feel like a 'resort'.
Michael and Shannon are amazing hosts. After suffering an allergic reaction to a new carpet smell, we were moved to a new room without any additional charges. Michael even helped us move our luggage and brought me medicine. The remainder of our stay went without a hitch. The facilities are clean and comfortable and the homemade breakfasts complete with blueberry pancakes, scones and muffins and delicious Green Mountain coffee were a most welcome and appreciated start to our days. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Northern Lights Lodge and highly recommend it. Thanks Michael and Shannon and best wishes on the birth of your baby. Jean
I very much enjoyed my stay. The staff was very informative when asked for recommendations on activities. It was within walking distance of "downtown" Stowe, which is great to avoid the weekend traffic in that area. And there is quite a lot of good food in the area. We stayed in an updated room and it was comfortable and quaint. The grounds were well maintained. The breakfast was a bit lacking, but could be improved to match the environment of the rest of the resort by containing more local goods or rustic fair.
Julie and John were the perfect hosts. The Inn is tastefully decorated in Vermont country style. That was the reason I selected it from the website. I saw photos of quilts, original needlework, hardwood floors, 4 poster beds, etc. We highly recommend a stay at Fitch Hill Inn for its ambiance and quiet location near lots of places to go and see.
Nice, clean resort. Was one of the less expensive options in the area with great amenities: hot tub, pool, tennis courts, free breakfast. The internet didn't work the entire time we were there, and the hotel only staffs someone until 10pm, so if you need something in the middle of the night, you are out of luck.
Family of 5 stayed here for 1 night. You can tell hard wrong people own this property. It was very clean, just outdated. My children loved that they could sleep in bunk beds in a hotel. Pool and hot tub were both very clean. No complaints...just outdated.
Our stay at Grunberg Haus was picture perfect, pulled straight from a happily-ever-after fairytale. Lia and Duane - official owners only mere weeks! - were wonderful attentive hosts (from post-reservation email conversations and cheerful smiles at check-in to cabin cleanliness and vegan accommodations). We were grateful for their insights on what to check out in the area - we picked blueberries at Hartshorn's Farm just down the road, had dinner in Montpelier, and swam in Warren Falls. Lia is a culinary artist (art-eest!) - breakfast was divine (can't go wrong with a cookbook laden with recipes for items such as cream cheese and raspberry jam stuffed french toast and maple pecan cake!) We can't wait to go back and our only regret is that we had to leave!
My wife and our two Italian Greyhounds enjoyed our overnight stay at this resort. This place has quite a unique feel to it as defined by the artwork and the layout of the rooms. The location is outstanding with so many restaurants, breweries, and things to do within a small radius. Do not hesitate to stay here! The breakfast chocolate croissants were delicious. I took an extra one for the road.
