How to Get There
One of the iconic properties in Stowe. My wife and I have probably stayed there more than a dozen times and never been disappointed. They offer a wide variety of room types...the Whip Bar and Restaurant located on the lower level of the Inn is a great place for lunch or dinner...BUT you must start your day in the main dining room enjoying a fantastic breakfast while looking over the activity on Main Street. Charming venue!
One night stay at this wonderful inn. We had a great room with the most comfy sheets ever. Fireplace in the room was awesome. Room also had a hot tub but we didn’t have time. Make sure to stay here! We walked to dinner at the whip bar and drill and then walked around town.
I stayed here with my husband and son for a mid-week ski break in March. We really enjoyed our stay.
Pros: friendly and helpful front desk staff; lovely old inn atmosphere; good location on Main Street; fantastic outdoor pool area; clean and nice room; very nice common areas; very nice wine and cheese reception on the evening we arrived; fairly convenient to the ski shuttle; nice breakfast (buffet and menu offered) although our waitress never smiled once and it was hard to get her attention (not because she was waiting on other tables, she just didn't appear in the dining room unless she was delivering a plate to someone)
Cons: noisy at night being on Main Street with trucks and snowplows; no place to hang wet ski clothes or bathing suits in the room; room a little cramped for the three of us as there were two full size beds but they are pushed against the walls so you must climb over someone to get out if you are sleeping against the wall
Overall, the Inn is a great option in Stowe and I would definitely stay here again.
We always rely on Trip Advisor reviews to steer us in the right direction of where to stay when our family of 4 goes on vacation. We found the *perfect* room at Green Mountain Inn.
We stayed in 726 in The Mansfield House which is called a Luxury Family Suite.
It has a fireplace in the main bedroom, with an incredibly comfortable and soft king bed, romantic and stylish interior design and lighting, clocks with USB connections on both bedsides, an extra large tub with jets (in your bedroom!), and a large flat-screen TV, and a door to close.
The best part though is the second bedroom, with two single beds (still very comfortable and super-soft premium bedsheets just like the king bed), and their own TV and nightstand, with a door to close. This allowed our kids (8 & 10) to have their own space, while we had ours.
The foyer of the room has a coat rack, a fridge, microwave, Keurig coffee maker with Green Mountain Coffee, and a fairly generous closet, and then a very modern bathroom with an instantly hot shower, copious amounts of soft towels of every size, a makeup station, multiple mirrors, hairdryer, and everything else you'd need. Shower has hand pumps of body wash, shampoo, and conditioner.
The room is also adjacent to a warm and cozy meeting area with chess boards, sofas, chairs, and they even had hot tea, cider, and cookies there one afternoon. The old photos hung around the hotel give you a nice sense of history - both of the town and the hotel - and add to its charm and atmosphere.
The room was close to a large parking lot that was easily accessible to get our gear in and out - even in the snow, or late at night.
The location is ideal, as it was perfectly centered between most of the activities we did during our vacation (dog sledding, snowshoeing, tubing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and ice climbing!)
Our family loved the super-nice pool and hot tub facilities - felt about 95 degrees in the pool (even if it was in the 30s outside!), and about 105 in the hot tub. Don't be worried about the fact that it's outdoors - the pool and hot tubs will keep you warm. Nothing quite like being in a warm pool with snow all around! The indoor hot-tub was nice, too, to warm up before changing to head back to our room. Even the locker rooms were well-appointed and had plenty of towels, showers, and lockers. We didn't try the sauna (probably was turned off for the winter). The adjacent exercise room had lots of nice equipment as well, but we had a very active daily schedule and didn't have a chance to exercise there.
The Main Street Dining Room was an excellent choice for breakfasts (we ate there twice during our 7 days in Stowe). Plenty of pastries and fruits and other choices on the buffet, and fresh, hot offerings from the menu. The room itself is warm and inviting and has a great view to the bustle of downtown Stowe outside. They also had a reception in this area one afternoon with free wine, beer, cheeses, and board games to play at every table.
The lobby and front desk staff were very nice and friendly.
About the only things we'd say could use some work were relatively minor:
* Our room key cards demagnetized quite easily, and we had to get replacements to get back into our room (this happens at any hotel that uses card keys though).
* The Game Room's selection of arcade games is in disrepair, outdated, and overpriced. We walked in and promptly walked out.
* The Whip Bar & Grill (the dinner restaurant in the hotel) was extremely overpriced, took a very long time for our food to arrive, our server wasn't great, and the food wasn't exceptional. We'd tell folks to look at other dinner options elsewhere (Sushi Yoshi was the best meal in town!).
Overall, I think we made a truly excellent choice in staying at The Green Mountain Inn, and we'd recommend it without hesitation to anyone staying in Stowe.
The room and entire hotel was very clean- and the restaurant was very good. Probably one of the cleanest places I've ever stayed. I was on a couple day getaway from my children and was very much looking forward to some down time and some rest. Was disappointed in the stay due to lack of sleep- I was exhausted by the time I left. We were in the Depot wing which meant we were on the corner of main street and depot (road?)- stores were below us. Very noisy- heard trucks/semis until 11pm then again around 4/5am. We didn't sleep for 2 nights. The walls are paper thin(to be expected in an old hotel) and the windows had no sound proofing. The room was surprisingly small (nothing like pictures on line)- could barely move around the beds. Probably the icing on the cake was the fake fireplace- it was essentially a light bulb behind a graphic of flames. The whole thing was underwhelming. My expectations were way too high for this place based on other reviews. Perhaps it would have been a different experience in a different room.
