Giving Thanks

19 November 2016

We are grateful for this opportunity to be here in Stowe, Vermont at the Brass Lantern Inn at all times and certainly at this time and season of the year.  We recognize that we are uniquely rewarded by the opportunity to welcome and host so many wonderful people from around this country and the world.

With so much apparent polarization of thoughts and feelings for our fellow human beings in this past year of political rhetoric, perhaps, and hopefully, we can use this time that has been set aside in the governmental calendars of the U.S. to be, dare I say it, a bit more compassionate towards one another.  Thanksgiving may just be the perfect transition point to help us all move forward from this year of campaign statements.

The beauty of this current position we find ourselves here in Stowe, Vermont, is that on any typical day we are clearly more focused on this wonderful adventure of Innkeeping and thereby preventing us from paying much attention to the constant “news” feeds from so many electronic channels.  Ultimately, I think this has been a good thing.  Of course we want to be involved and aware of our local, national and worldwide events, we are intimately aware that our location and special community gives us some “protection” from things that might otherwise give us concern.  Not really a “head in the sand” kind as much as, “thank goodness we have a healthy awareness and distance from those things that otherwise may impact our sense of peaceful retreat” here in northern Vermont.

We hope that this Thanksgiving Season gives you time to assess your own blessings and rewards.  And perhaps this holiday will also provide a chance to bring us all together in a worldwide family.  I know, kind of corny, but as our world becomes more interconnected (at least in a communicative sense, if not geographical) is it not in the best interest of all that we, get along?

This post certainly strays away from the more local focus of the Stowe area that we typically share but feel that we are more alike than different and the opportunity for being thankful just struck me today.  And if your own Thanksgiving Day plans are still open why not consider a peaceful retreat to Stowe and the Brass Lantern Inn?  Check out our “Thanksgiving in Stowe” special; stay two nights, get third at 30% off.  Discounts extend for even longer stays, just call us to confirm.

Happy Thanksgiving,

George and Mary Anne

Where Did Summer Go?

16 September 2012

Not that we aren’t excited to embrace our next season!

We are moving quickly into our Fall Foliage Season. One of our busiest as we look forward welcoming back guests/friends as well as many new guests here to witness the amazing display of the annual turning of the leaves from green to gold, yellow and reds. The temperatures have finally begun to drop into a range expected – sunny and warm by mid-day and crisp and cool at night. No frost yet (as of 9/16/12) but we expect to see it soon. A welcome relief after an above normal temperature we experienced here in Stowe,
Vermont this summer.

There is already some chatter in town regarding predictions of how much snow will we see this winter! Various images of extended forecast weather maps on the internet have begun to circulate on Facebook and through the local e-mails and my favorite one shows two divergent jet streams coming together in southern New England with a bubble of “above normal snow” centered right smack dab over Vermont. Ok, I did not get the full source of this particular weather map but we certainly hope this prediction comes true.

Stowe Mountain Resort typically works towards a Thanksgiving Weekend opening! The countdown to skiing and all of our great winter activities has definitely begun here in Stowe, Vermont.

And as we look ahead to the Thanksgiving Season we realize the blessing and good fortune we have found here in Stowe as the latest Innkeepers/Stewards of the Brass Lantern Inn. December 16th will mark only the 3rd Anniversary of when we took ownership. In that relatively short time we have hosted guests from 39 of our United States and 24 countries. Sharing life stories with so many guests from around the world is truly the greatest perk of this “job.”

To let our past guests and potential guests know of our gratefulness with this amazing lifestyle we offer you a special “Thank You Discount.” More details are on our home page under the “make a reservation.” Once on that page click on the tab, “Discounts and packages.” You can save 35% off of your third consecutive night for stays completed between 10/28 and 12/4/12. This discounted rate is on top of our already quiet season rates!

We hope to see you soon!
