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.

Our overall experience was outstanding. The only significant distraction was the inadequate size of the room. Nowhere to sit, no place to store clothing. Two people could only pass each other with difficulty. (We are not fat).

This hotel was stunning in all aspects. This was the first time we have seen snow/been in the cold therefore we didn't do anything other than enjoy the atmosphere and it was perfect. The bar and downstairs were so inviting and comfy. Also being able to just walk around this beautiful premises was something you cant get anywhere else. I would go… Read more

The hotel is attractive but has many problems. The rooms are, even at $1000/night tiny. The tv is poor quality, dark, and out of date as are the in room designs.

The hotel is attractive but has many problems. The rooms are, even at $1000/night tiny. The tv is poor quality, dark, and out of date as are the in room designs. The door to the coffee cabinet couldn't even be opened because the room was too small and the door opened 45 degrees onlybefore it hit the bed. The coffee maker is an old type, not newer pod style. The bedding is thin. The views are often mediocre even at an exorbitant price. The staff is largely foreign on temporary visas and work hard. Management is unkind and do not try to improve conditions. The lobby has a fire that is almost always on its last members. There are no electrical outlets in case you want to sit and work on your laptop while family members ski. Wifi is spotty and the spruce peak wifi was simply off in the public areas. Dining has improved from when we were last here but is still overpriced. They offered a complimentary wine tasting in the evening only it was actually 18 dollars a glass for a mediocre rose wine. The pool area is heated and outdoors but for a wi terrible ski resort they didn't think it through. There are no hooks or racks for towels outside and the exit to the pool looks like a staff only custodial area. Indoors there are a few small cubbyholes to try to out your towel or robe but they have exposed screws inside that can cut your finger and cause bleeding (as I know from personal experience). Nothing is included and they charge a hefty resort fee. Want a yoga class in the gym? $20. Want a cookie in the lobby? They put out about a dozen in the evening for the large hotel and when gone they are gone. Don't even think about speaking with management to improve an issue. Pick another hotel. You are a sucker to stay here. Read less

Excellent location, service, and amenities. If you're planning to ski at Stowe, the Lodge at Spruce Peak is easily the best choice. It is ski in and ski out with great staff and facilities. We've gone back many times and never once been disappointed.

Staff super friendly! Need to calm early to get car from valet ( made the mistake of calling when I needed it instead of 15 mins earlier), but they cleared off any snow each time! I had Epic pass so got discount! Hot tub so worth it and they warm/dry the boots at night -definitely plan on coming back!!
