Thank you Emily for your stay and the very kind words of our efforts to serve you during your stay here in Stowe. You seemed very kind and appreciative of all of our efforts and these nice comments are received as invaluable reward for our efforts.
We are sorry that we did not meet your expectations regarding the traffic and resulting noise of the road in front of our Inn. We recognize that everyone has a different threshold and some sleep more or less lightly than others. The Roundtop Mountain Room is listed as being on the Maple St. side of the Inn. And while it is true that we are in a rural area we are in a very popular area, Stowe, and hence there will be more people like you who are interested in staying in the area... therefore more traffic. Again, our apologies and we will revise the listing again with the intent to make it even clearer to some that might be lighter sleepers of this condition.
The Roundtop Mountain room is our most occupied room in the Inn, most likely guests recognize the value of that room similar to that which you found on this channel. And you are correct, the Sugarloaf Mountain Room, identical is size and amenities at typically under $10 more per night than Roundtop Mountain Room has amazing views of Mt. Mansfield and is not on the Maple St. side of the Inn so if we have the opportunity to host you again, perhaps this would be a great option for you.
Unfortunately for us, we didn't hear of this issue until this review. While we were very busy that weekend, we did have some other room options and would have been happy to move you to another room with no frontage on the Maple Street side of the Inn or provide an air purifier/white noise for your room. Our mission here is to hopefully exceed expectations of our guests. If we have the opportunity to communicate during your stay, especially for issues such as this, we have a much better chance of providing you with an exceptional stay.
We sincerely hope we have the opportunity to host you again and we very much appreciate your gift of a review as it helps us be as clear as possible in our description of this room on Airbnb considering a stay here at our 9 room Inn. Your comments are truly invaluable. Thank you.
George and Mary Anne
