Ten Acres Lodge Description:
Situated at one of the most photographed locations in Stowe, with a stunning sunrise vista, the main house is only 2.5 miles from Stowe Village and just minutes from skiing, shopping and more. A review of town records indicates the main house was built in 1836 by the Bigelow family. It became a B&B around 1950 just as skiing was taking hold in Stowe. In 1953 two cottages were built, one of which is available for rent today. The Hill House suites, pictured at right, were built in 1986 to complete the property as it is today. These days the Main Lodge is decorated throughout with period antiques and unique offerings from around the world, so the common areas have a blend of old and new. The innkeepers have added touches to the lodge not found in other B&B's based on their experiences of living abroad. The dining room is classic elegance with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and soft relaxing music in the background.
In the common areas of the Main Lodge, look for the woodcarvings of renowned artist AB Wilson . His exquisite carvings of birds will take your breath away. The beautiful hillside where the lodge is located is quiet and peaceful but has easy access to all tourist activities: downhill skiing, cross country skiing, bike paths, golf, restaurants and shopping. Many of our guests have told us our location is perfect, close to Stowe but far enough away to make you feel like you are in the country. The cows across the street are a popular fixture at Ten Acres during Summer and Fall and are one of the reasons people love our view.
Breakfast at Ten Acres is a simple, yet fulfilling affair. We are comitted to making sure no one goes away hungry. Imagine beignets from New Orleans, hot tea from England, scrambled eggs cooked with cream, bacon that is applewood smoked and fruit of all kinds. And of course, to go with French toast, one must always have Vermont Maple syrup (or as we call it, Vermont liquid gold!). You can also sample Ten Acres Hot Chocolate, a recipe made here at the lodge. And finally, Vermont's own Green Mountain coffee (Lake and Lodge blend). In Winter, we always welcome skiers with hot drinks like spiced Apple cider or wine. Snacks to take the edge off the chill of winter help prepare you for the evening.
