Stone Hill Inn, located in Stowe, VT is quiet, secluded, and barely visible fifty feet above the Mountain Road. Surrounded by woods on 9.5 acres feels like an island of calm. Yet, Stowe, its restaurants, and the best skiing in New England are less than 10 minutes away. Here at our Stowe Vermont B&B luxury is defined by both the thoughtfulness of your accommodations and opportunities for intimacy — intimacy of life and love. This is the beginning of unexpected ways to celebrate life, together.
Some of our guests spend just about all of their time right here at the Inn and tell us it's a hard place to leave. But for those who do want to get out and enjoy the area (which we highly recommend!), a scenic mountain village awaits at our doorstep. Stowe, Vermont--with its New England charm, hints of European influence, and natural beauty--has been welcoming visitors for over two centuries.

Borrow a movie from our video library; we even provide the popcorn! Stargaze while soaking in our outdoor hot tub.
Brides and grooms are often seen in the garden taking their wedding vows, as this is a popular site for private wedding ceremonies (as well as proposals, anniversaries and honeymoons!).

Breakfast, of course, is "the most important meal of the day!" So, Linda insists on everything homemade to be sure you'll be ready for all 4500 feet of Mansfield or shopping at Shaw's downtown!
Like the powdered sugar on your orange-pecan waffle, sun dabbles the two of you as you sit within a cathedral of 40 windows. Fresh Vermont Green Mountain coffee magically appears in the pantry by 7am, or earlier if you knock on the kitchen door! Linda might even sneak you a slice of the day's freshly baked treat as well! Our multi-course breakfast is from 8:00 to 10:00 am, however for those who hear the call of fresh powder or for greens with no spike marks 7:30am needs just a whisper in our ear and it’s done!
Well, if you're skiing or teeing off early and don't have time to linger, we'll serve breakfast whenever you want! The rest of us may pause, take inventory, share new ideas, even some secrets. Relax. You may have the frittata and the pancakes if you wish. Of course, the syrup is heated. Yes, we can make eggs to order. Coffee was brewed only minutes ago. Nine rooms, nine tables, unless, of course, you want to join with others. Enjoy the views. Listen to the music – some days Celine some days Bach. Yum!
