A tired old Queen of a hotel. So many rooms and amenities offered. The bar was friendly. The breakfast attendant extremely nice and accommodating. The rooms are clean but there is a musty odor. I hear many people love this place but for me, I need to have a room that I like to hang in. Need to know that the location is about 15 minutes from town center in case you want to be closer. Beautiful grounds. Must be nice in the warmer months.

PRO: Close to many area attractions.Staff is very friendly and professional. CON: Our room was located above the outdoor fire pit. Guests were out side well after midnight being noisy and we had to run the bath exhaust to get rid of all the smoke. So we do not recommend anyone to reserve a room on that side of the hotel. Thermostat did not work properly. Keys and lock on the door did not work.Selective menu at Fritz Bar & Restaurant. It is in need of a necessary up grade all the way around.

Room tip: Do not book anything on the side where the outdoor fire pit is!

Dear Road204050,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. I am glad that you felt that the staff was friendly and professional, but am sorry to read about the challenges you experienced regarding smoke and noise from the outdoor fire-pit.

Thank you again for your review and I will hope to welcome you back to The Stowehof in the future after our renovation has occurred.

Our room, in the front of the hotel, was bare and much in need of redecoration/modernisation. Not even a chair. The room thermostat was not working and the room was like a sauna. We slept (badly) with the windows open. The thermostat couldn't be fixed the next day, so heating was turned off. Cold room! The hotel itself is old and in need of modernising and updating. Did not feel comfortable at the hotel. The only plus point is the location and the grounds at the back of the hotel.

Room tip: More expensive rooms at tne back of the hotel have a view.

Dear Sue R,

I am so sorry to read of the poor experience you had at The Stowehof. Our team prides itself on providing all of our guests with a unique and positive experience; I am disappointed to see that we did not provide this experience to you. The Stowehof is a classic Vermont hotel and has been cherished by many over the years. That said, the hotel does indeed need some modernization and I am happy to share that we are in the planning phases of a large scale renovation project. Thank you again for sharing your experience with us and I hope to welcome you back again in the future.

Best regards,

Ryan Krukar

This Bavarian style lodge was in an ideal secluded location with absolutely beautiful views of the mountains and fall foliage. The room was spacious and comfortable with it’s own dressing area, making it easy to spread out for the week.
The common areas were cozy, stylish and offered many nooks where one could relax. In addition, the Fritz bar served delicious food and drink from the Bavarian region. Overall, it was a great place to stay and we look forward to returning in the future!

The other bad reviews were accurate. The rooms are old and dirty. We were there 2 days ago, stayed only one night. When I booked the 2 rooms, I specified to have the rooms side by side or at least on the same floor. When we arrived, I found we got one room on the ground floor and the other room on the 2nd floor, eventually the man at the front desk did manage to switch reservations around and accommodate my request. But the rooms were terrible, the carpet had stains all over the place, the night tables had deep scratch marks. The worse were the bathrooms, the sink drained very slowly, the puddle accumulated will splash on you when you wash your face. One of the drain stopper was pulled out and laid up side down next to the faucets. The bath tub has brown stains all around, I would not even step in it. When someone in the next room takes a shower, the sound of the running water pipe is very loud.
With that said, the hotel is in a nice location, has a nice view, but the place needs serious renovation and updating.

Room tip: do not take room 32 and 33

Dear snowbird683,

I am sorry to read that you did not enjoy your experience with us. All of the issues you mention are unacceptable and not indicative of the type of experience we offer at The Stowehof. That said, we are in the planning phases of an extensive renovation which will address the items you mention in your review. I hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future once we have updated the property.

Best regards,

Ryan Krukar
