The Lodge at Spruce Peak

Stowe, Vermont

The hotel

This luxury lodge has definitely earned its bragging rights – New England’s only ski-in/ski-out lodge, it immerses you in mountain life from its location to its look. Dressed for the occasion in Vermont timber and stone, it has all the romance of an alpine cabin, but all the indulgences of a luxury lodge, including WiFi, a super-sized spa and wellness centre, boutiques, the fine artisan dining of Solstice Restaurant, and the casual bistro and microbrewery treats of Hourglass Lounge. For some, its spectacular setting’s best experienced from its outdoor pool and hot tubs, where you can lounge back and soak up views of Mount Mansfield. For others, it’s by getting out there – and Stowe Mountain Lodge’s Alpine Concierge® will help set you off on anything from snowshoe tours in search of frozen waterfalls to rounds of golf at Stowe Mountain Club.

The best location for skiing. The resort itself could do with a better cafe selling some light breakfast/lunch options as well as a grocery type store. I used the spa and thought it was vastly overpriced even for American standards, certainly one of the only disappointments we experienced at the resort.

On the plus side: nice fireplace, great robes, large bathroom, nice shower and towels, comfortable bed. Pretty lobby and it was nice to eat there with our dog. On the minus side; very small room need to get rid of large ottoman. Small TV, not enough lights or outlets. Nice tub, but not jetted and the plug didn't work. Low toilet, no fan.… Read more

On the minus side; very small room need to get rid of large ottoman. Small TV, not enough lights or outlets. Nice tub, but not jetted and the plug didn't work. Low toilet, no fan. Expensive including valet fee and over $100 for the dog. Beautiful pool and hot tub but way too cold to get in. That was very disappointing. Skiing was good but not all slopes and lifts were open.

Lorabeth was an AMAZING waitress! She was attentive, bubbly, and very accommodating. We will request her as our waitress the next time we stay! The food was amazing, and despite our food allergies, she was able to meet all our desires!

I've been back a couple of times in January and February 2020 and they' ve definitely gotten their mojo back. In particular the food was fantastic.

I've been back a couple of times in January and February 2020 and they' ve definitely gotten their mojo back. In particular the food was fantastic. The breakfast buffet and the dinners were always really good. The local butter and yogurt and their home made granola are wonderful. We did not have a single bad dish and the kiddie buffet for dinner was a success. It's simple foods, but it is what children like to eat and my children loved to see the food and help themselves. Service was great as usual. The ski valet was prompt. The outdoor pool was hot. Will be back again. Read less
