Had a good dinner, but high price for the limited menu. Beautiful dining room, but atmosphere was diminished by lack of music and lighting to fit the beauty of the dark wood. Servers were naive about the menu choices and wine and rushed the meal without attending to things like plates for bread, etc.

We booked over the phone at the last minute and arrived to check in. We've all been places where new folks were training and patience is the way to go, but the series of events between the trainee and trainer and on the phone owner was worthy of a Marx Brothers movie. 50 minutes later we got to our room....

When I booked, I queried whether they had reliable WiFi -- they said yes. Not so. They advertise breakfast starting from 7 a.m. When I went for breakfast at 7:45, well it wasn't ready yet. So I had breakfast at the Main Cafe which was wonderful. I'm not sure if that they were understaffed or whether they only cater to... More

There were limited dates to use the voucher before it expired so we attempted to schedule our dinner twice and twice our reservation was cancelled because not enough people had signed up (only one other couple each time...

2 couples in the dining room. Food looked pretty but was ice cold. Prime rib - lot of fat. Lovely ambience- they have a lovely porch for a drink

We have visited Stowe regularly for 25 years & have always admired the visual charm of the Stowe Inn. This year we were enticed by the sign advertising Prime Rib thinking it was a special for that evening & not realizing that the sign is always there. We should have caught on when we called for reservations on a Friday... More

We are long-time visitors to Stowe and know this property has had at least several owners and managers through the years. We went there on Saturday of July 4 weekend and found the place nearly empty, (about five tables occupied) which should have been a tip off something was amiss given that the village was very crowded overall. The space... More

The building was beautiful! Felt like you stepped back in time. Service was great! They accommodated every request in a timely manner. Internet was spotty and would drop every now and again. On-site restaurant was a little expensive, service was not great.
