Testimonials

Thank you so much for everything you provided to us for the most amazing weekend.  Stowe Mountain Ranch Retreats gave us the feeling of home – the views of the mountains from the yoga studio were amazing and the beds were extremely comfortable. 

The kitchen was so large, open and welcoming and everything was clean and beautiful. The chefs from The New England Culinary Institute were so passionate about there work. I also loved your use of solar technology to heat the property and its hot water.

I am still not over the view we woke up to on Sunday morning.  The changing leaves, the misty clouds, and beautiful horses!!!!  Thank you so much  for taking us riding – that was the most wonderful experience…. I will always remember our time at your lovely ranch and hope to return in the future!

At your retreat center, I was able to find the perfect balance between keeping busy and relaxing. The studio was warm and inviting for a great yoga practice and the property had amazing access to hiking trails all made for a great fall hike in beautiful foliage. The views of the mountains, horses, barns and the mist coming off the river were wonderful. I would definitely come back! Thanks again.

HI Gerry,

Thank you for a such a great weekend at the Stowe Mountain Ranch Retreats!

The graciousness of you and your hospitality were wonderful! The peacefulness of the land and the horses offers a very special place to practice yoga, hike, learn horsemanship, eat great food and strengthen friendships. The meals were wonderful and the bedrooms were very welcoming.

I very much enjoyed my stay there and look forward to returning.

I teach at Otter Creek Yoga and I am currently completing my 200 hour teacher training certification.

Thanks again….Namaste

Thank you for hosting our yoga retreat at your amazing retreat center..
I found it to be a welcoming environment for connecting with my practice, for developing friendships, and for harmonizing with nature. The views, the yoga studio, chefs and bedrooms were great……. and so was the hot tub.

And everyone loved being around such beautiful horses. Thank you!

I never would have expected an experience with horsemanship to be so complimentary to yoga practice. What an inspiring innovation! There’s something about trotting along the trails after sweating through an asana series that buoys the heart and sharpens the mind. Plus, the retreat center’s accommodations fostered a close-nit camaraderie that made spending the weekend with my regular practice friends absolutely unforgettable. Your yoga studio with mountain views and beautiful hard wood  ceilings was wonderful. Thank you for a wonderful and invigorating stay. I only wish it could have lasted longer.

Thank you for having us at your Stowe Mountain Ranch Retreats and equestrian ranch. It was wonderful to soak up such nice, fall colors.

I’m Sayuri (I was the tall asian one)… I teach and I’m just finishing my 200 hour teacher training.

The practice space with the big glass doors was awesome! I have such a great memory from the first night looking out towards the mountains as the sun was setting and the mist was rising from the river. You definitely have a perfect space for yogis to practice. And the hot tub and the sauna….I couldn’t get enough. I could not have asked for more for my physical body.

I think it was also great that the chefs were cooking while we were practicing and dinner was ready when we were finished. It brought kind of a silly, relaxed mood to me while I was practicing. For me, the sleeping situation was also very good in the Green Mountain bedroom. I was so relaxed from practice, sauna & hot tub, I didn’t hear a thing when I went to bed. I also loved seeing your relationship with your horses. It is a beautiful sight to see such harmony & love. The hike was great too, such beautiful countryside.

Hope to see you again soon.

Namaste,

In the idyllic mountains of Vermont, the Stowe Mountain Ranch Retreats provided a peaceful and comfortable setting in which to practice. The beautiful hardwood studio was warm and inviting, with stunning views of the mountains and the horses all around. It was a blessing to practice in such a beautiful space and retire to a comfortable bed at the end of the night, after great meals and spending some time in the hot tub and sauna, of course! I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and can’t wait to come back! Namaste.

Thank you so much for having our yoga studio for a retreat. I tried new things and practiced in a refreshing setting with wonderful views of the mountains and your horses. And the mist coming off the river in the morning was just amazing. In addition, I was able to retreat at night to a beautiful bedroom and during the day get closer to my yoga family. The chefs from The New England Culinary Institute were wonderful and clearly passionate about their work. The hike in the forest with that beautiful river accompanied by your horses was special….very spiritual. It was a yoga retreat, summer camp, a relaxation retreat, and family vacation all in one. I have endless gratitude and look forward to returning!

I am a yoga teacher at our studio and am currently working towards my 500-hour certification.

Namaste.
