The Basics


The Brass Lantern Inn is a charming bed and breakfast in the quintessential Vermont town of Stowe. Set within the ca. 1810 brick farm house and timber beamed carriage house, it rests on an acre and a half of outdoor space, with spectacular views of Mt. Mansfield, and is carefully managed to provide all of the creature comforts of today while respecting the unique character of this historic inn. We are a four season destination for all Stowe has to offer!

Top notch service. Parking available on site, accommodations were clean and located central to everything you want to see/do in Stowe. Hosts were friendly and knowledgeable.

Sidewalk was shoveled (lots of beautiful snow) and decor...See More

We stayed in the Dewey Mountain Room,...See More
