The Edson Hill
Vermont Vacation, Weekend Getaway + More
Nestled high on a hill overlooking 38-acres of natural breathtaking Vermont scenery; Edson Hill is conveniently located just a short drive from the village of Stowe and skiing at Stowe Mountain Resort. Guests experience the serenity of a secluded retreat where you can feel a million miles away – along with easy access to endless local attractions.
As you veer off Stowe Mountain Road and enter the property you’re greeted by Edson Hill’s quintessential Vermont structures – the historic gray barn and the rambling horse stables and Nordic Center. Follow the winding road as it wraps its’ way around the sparkling pond and sprawling lawns delivering you to Manor House reception.
Our four guest houses sit on the hill above celebrating their own panoramic views of the untouched Worcester Range and the Green Mountains.
In the summer months, take a stroll on the walking trails and take a deep breath of the fresh Vermont air. Stop at the dock and dive into the pond for a dip or just relax amongst the tranquil scenery.
In the winter time, play a game of chess fireside in our living room, or cozy up in the Tavern with a glass of fine wine. For the more ambitious, invite you to snowshoe, ski, or fat bike our historic trail system that runs through the property.
Whether you’re looking for a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle of home, or a high energy, active family vacation, an Edson Hill getaway assures the best of both worlds.

A Rich History Lives on at Edson Hill Country Inn
Edson Hill, a historic Stowe Inn and restaurant with extensive grounds, was purchased in 2014 by three Boston-based families whose vision was to keep Edson Hill a full-service luxury inn and restaurant, while adding some of their own personal touches. The secluded retreat includes the main building, four hillside cottages, a swimming pool, fishing ponds, a horse barn paddocks, and a network of trails – to name only a few amenities.
The main building, or Manor, was built by Verner Reed, a Newport, R.I., man. The original construction boasted building materials salvaged from notable Vermont structures, telling their own tales of Vermont’s history. The red brick walls once part of Burlington’s famous Sherwood Hotel, and the beams that cross the living room were originally crafted for the barn of the legendary Ethan Allen.
Renovated, Refined and Redesigned in 2014 to Create a Distinctive Luxury Inn
When faced with restoration and redesign of Edson Hill, the new owners were committed to honoring the historic integrity of the property but wished to incorporate modern conveniences and sophisticated charm. They called on part owner Susan Stacy, of Boston-based interior design firm Gauthier-Stacy, for the experience, creativity,
talent, and enthusiasm required for the challenge. The results? Livable, comfortable, and modern, with a gentle nod to the past; earning Gauthier-Stacy and Edson Hill critical acclaim for design, comfort, and unique touches, for both accommodations and service.
