Originally built as a large farmhouse a century and a half earlier, the 'real' building was masked; hidden behind the veneers of subsequent fashions. Once stripped away, they revealed the essence of that which is the essential ingredient of the traditional English country inn. A sense of substance, strength, history, confidence, warmth and security... a perfect foundation for welcoming hospitality.
Such authentic character and ambiance cannot be contrived; this friendly and inviting patina is bestowed by time alone. Modified and restored, modern facilities and amenities installed, the Laura Ashley decor, antiques and reproductions have married the original building perfectly.
The Bluff House offers our most luxurious guest accommodations in an atmosphere of English Manor sophistication. Each uniquely decorated suite offers every modern amenity with spectacular views completely unrivaled in the area.
Towering on a massive granite bluff, the building hugs the contours of the land in complete harmony. Nestled proudly on its granite perch, the timeless Tudor Manor architecture casts a castle like presence on the Mountain Road below.
Through the windows set into ten inch thick walls you will experience a unique perspective with panoramas soaring high above the village to the surrounding peaks and ridges of the famous Worcesters to the South. Views to the North carry over the pool and property to majestic Mount Mansfield, Vermont's highest at 4,393 feet.
These very luxurious accommodations are exceptional and absolutely unique in Stowe and the State of Vermont. Every Bluff House Suite has been designed to provide total comfort for your carefree vacation right down to the steps which assist your access to the beautiful high queen size rice carved four poster beds.
Designer fabrics and furnishings abound. The bathrooms, spacious bright and airy are a ladies delight, providing full shower and a separate whirlpool tub for two. Each suite boasts a lounge with sofa and wing chairs, cherry desks and cocktail tables, custom built refrigerated cherrywood wet bars, oversize televisions, mantled fireplaces and private decks or patios to capture the invigorating morning sun and romantic sunsets.
Throughout, classic English paintings and prints adorn the walls. The sense of privacy, peace and tranquillity is immediate.
THE WINDSOR SUITE
Windsor is the only suite that does not feature a deck or patio. Of its inspiring height we felt a little uncomfortable for guests with vertigo! Views from here are truly magnificent. Look ahead out to the fields and beyond through the Lamoille Valley for miles, to your right the ridgeline of the Worcester Mountains is most impressive. Just left is Mount Mansfield the highest mountain in Vermont. Sixty feet below, roofs of every size pitch and angle testify to the interesting inn they cover, they evoke images of a London in the time of Dickens. The Windsor suite can connect to Newcastle if desired.
