The Hobble Inn, located in historic Stowe village provides a quiet retreat from the ski slopes, restaurants, nature trails, and shopping just down the way. The carefully renovated 150 year old house sits in a picturesque residential neighborhood a 5 minute drive from the Mountain Road. The Hobble Inn is owned and loved by Mary Skelton, a Stowe native, and is proud to be fully licensed, inspected, registered and insured. There are three options for accommodations at The Hobble Inn. You can rent the entire 4 bedroom home which sleeps 7, an upstairs queen bedroom with a shower bathroom down the hall, or a twin sized bedroom downstairs with a handicap accessible bathroom in the shared space of the home. Full use of the kitchen, living room, and outdoor spaces are available to those renting either bedroom option.
Hobble Inn is the passion of Mary Skelton. A Vermont native, Mary has spent her life caring for other people. As a homemaker, wife, and mother she honed her ability to make others comfortable and welcome. Having grown up in Stowe, Vermont Mary is the person to guide you to the perfect dinner or the best nature trail of her home town. As an all around nice lady, she maintains a cheerful demeanor and a wicked ability to pun.
In 2010, Mary moved back into her childhood home in Stowe Village to care for her aging parents. When “The Folks,” Clem and Anne Curtis passed away two years later past the age of 100, Mary turned her attention to the house she had loved since childhood. She quickly brushed back the years and is now pleased to offer this gem, her home, to out-of-towners looking for a quiet New England vacation.
