Brass Lantern Inn
Ranked #1 of 22 Stowe B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 October 2017

As a person of above average height, some buildings just aren't built with me in mind. This house is one of them. But, as mentioned previously, Mary Anne and George overcome all challenges with their outstanding personalities. You just can't be anything but joyous around them. They are the quintessential B+B hosts. Not to mention George is an excellent chef, and I'm not using that title loosely. He has recipes. These 2 also know the area quite well and help with your day planning to make your stay even more exceptional.

Room Tip: Nice property in a beautiful part of the world

Thank you for your stay and for sharing your experience here. And yes, our circa 1850 brick farmhouse is more of an intimate scale. We are grateful that our service offset your physical challenges here! And thank you for the kudos on the breakfast. We enjoy the experience here as much as it appears you and others did and do. Thanks again and hope the rest of your fall foliage tour was just as memorable.

Appreciate you taking the time to post this review,
George and Mary Anne

You wouldn't return to the Brass Lantern but for any other reason than the hosts, Mary Ann and George who make you feel welcome and like old friends. This is not an exceptionally luxurious B and B and nor is it priced to be, although if offers everything that you want. But the hosts really make it special and wonderful. Can't say enough about them. They were friendly but not intrusive.

The memories of our visit to Stowe in September are wrapped in the the hospitality, excellent food, and beautiful views provided at the Brass Lantern. The experience was a gift that we'll remember for a long time. Mary Ann and George create just the right balance of assistance and privacy for their guests. Breakfast choices provide the guests with delicious and healthy starts to the day. The rooms make you feel cozy and comfortable. Parking is right near the door and there are rooms upstairs and also on the first floor. We are so glad that we chose the Brass Lantern.

Owners/hosts Maryanne & George were friendly & gracious. Decor was tasteful & pleasant. Everything was very tidy & clean. Spacious dining room & common area. Our room (Sterling Mountain) was large & comfortable. It was very pleasant coming back to after the day's activities in the Stowe area. Not really an easy walk to Stowe because the road has very narrow shoulders; however, there is a nice market with all of the necessities (e.g. food, wine) right next door.

We highly recommend the Brass Lantern Inn. Mary Ann & George are the gracious owners who know how to pamper. Mary Ann is the ultimate hostess. She helped us find hikes to fit our abilities, great restaurants, and perfect stores for the items we wanted to purchase. George cooks gourmet breakfasts from puffy souffles to pinnies. The inn has great views of the mountains, smugglers notch, and sunsets. Our room, #2, was spacious and comfy. We need to mention the wonderful homemade cookies waiting for us each afternoon. Grade = A+.
