Boutique, Victorian-Style Inn with Gourmet Restaurant
Built in 1814, The Stowe Inn’s Victorian mansion brims with antique furnishings, including oriental rugs and a mahogany bar from the early 20th century. More wood furnishings accent the 16 guest rooms, where you’ll also find Edwardian-style beds, while 22 rooms in the Country Lodge Building offer amenities such as country quilting. The wraparound porch gives guests an opportunity to look over all of Stowe, and you can warm up next to the crackling fireplace in the living room.
Chefs at the onsite River House Restaurant use locally sourced ingredients to prepare an array of dishes, such as pecan crusted salmon over couscous and slow-roasted prime rib. If you stay on a weekend in one of the Superior rooms, you'll enjoy $12 restaurant credit. You’ll also find several dining options elsewhere in town, ranging from upscale seafood spots to craft breweries. There are a number of artisan shops and specialty stores nearby as well.
This getaway includes continental breakfast for two; the weekend options include hot breakfast for two people.
