Stowe, VT (PRWEB) January 25, 2008
To kick off a year-long celebration of their 175th anniversary, the Green Mountain Inn will surprise their 175th guest in January and June with accommodations on the house. Upon check-in, the lucky guest will receive their stay for free (maximum of two nights) as compliments of the inn and as gratitude for their patronage.
The Green Mountain Inn was built as a private dwelling house in 1833 but was later traded for a farm and turned into a hotel complete with a dance hall, called the Mansfield House. It was renamed the Brick House in the late 1800s, and then renamed again by owner Mark Lovejoy who gave the property its now famous name, the Green Mountain Inn.
Over the years the inn has hosted many famous visitors, including Lowell Thomas, who made regular broadcasts from the inn, President Gerald Ford, who stayed at the inn as a student on a modeling assignment for Look Magazine, and President Chester A. Arthur, who acted in a theatrical production at the inn. There have also been many innkeepers over the years, including the famous Parker Perry, who owned the Stowe mountain resort for more than 35 years.
In 1982 the inn was purchased by Marvin Gameroff, a Canadian visitor to Stowe who fell in love with the property and began a massive restoration project including the additions of the Mansfield and Mill House. In 2008, the Stowe mountain resort is celebrating a milestone of 175 years in existence, with properties that rank at the top of the National Register of Historical Places
In addition to the room giveaways and special events, additional celebrations and deals on trips are scheduled throughout the entire year including:
> January and June: 175th person checking in receives their lodging for free
> February and December: 17.5 percent off all items in retail cabinet
