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.

Wanted some quality time with just me and my son, as I work full time and have worked through COVID from home. I thought the responsible thing to do was to go away within my state.

Wanted some quality time with just me and my son, as I work full time and have worked through COVID from home. I thought the responsible thing to do was to go away within my state. I guess I really didn’t think it through that 85% of the people staying there were from the tri-state area and a few outlying states. I *want* to believe these people quarantined for 14 days prior to their stay but I can’t trust human behavior, and certainly not during a pandemic. Masks were required and protocol followed but at times it felt like there was far more than the 50% occupancy. From a business standpoint, I absolutely understand that establishments need to be open, etc., but I’m trying to outweigh benefits and risk here now that I’m home from my stay. I literally feel like *we* practically need to quarantine from possible exposure! On the flip side, the lodge offered something for everyone—swimming, tennis, golf, spa, a game room for the kids! And the employees were lovely and gracious and clearly working so hard!! A special thanks to Larry at the front desk who is super calm and delightful in his manner. Also Billy, on cleaning staff /maybe facilities? Anyway, he went out of his way to give us directions and gave us some tips! Beautifully appointed lobby and lounge area; gorgeous grounds and very beautiful pool and jacuzzi. the Solstice restaurant is very nice as an eatery option; our room seemed a bit dated and darkly lit but the bathroom made up for it:) Read less

I understand that we're in the midst of a global pandemic, and I also understand that therefore housekeeping staff doesn't enter rooms to clean. However, we spent 4 nights in a room with 3 humans and 2 dogs and NO PLACE to get rid of trash from the room. I can't believe a trash bin isn't left in a designated area for guests to dump trash or a staff member wheels a trash can through the halls once or twice a day to collect trash left out by guests. Our room felt and looked gross with overflowing garbage cans. Towels were difficult to get, too. After having to go to the lobby desk twice in one day to request clean towels, they were delivered but we were never given any clean face cloths ever. As a World of Hyatt member, I was given a rate that included breakfast. No where did anything specify what or from where this breakfast was. I had to ask the concierge who told me it included one meal and one beverage for each person staying in the room. That's it. I tried to clarify (confirm) this at the front desk upon check-in and was told the breakfast was free for dine-in and pick-up at Solstice only, and quite frankly, the desk employee seemed almost perturbed by me even inquiring about it. When I went to check-out, sure enough, I was charged for the breakfasts and was told by the different desk clerk it was because the breakfasts were free only if you dined at the restaurant. After having to argue that I was told otherwise, the charges reluctantly came off my bill. Frustrating! The atmosphere was cold and uncaring. We will go back to the Trapp Family Lodge when we visit Stowe again. Read less

Our wedding was originally going to be held in June but we had to postpone due to COVID. We decided to treat ourselves and celebrate up in Stowe at the Lodge for a few nights anyway (we had been looking forward to this for two years!) Logan and his team were so sympathetic to our situation and made us feel so welcome. The desk agent Larry, even gave us some awesome advice for trails to hike in the area. We will definitely be back-we had the best time exploring Stowe and all that part of VT has to offer. The service at the Lodge was beyond exceptional and it was just shy of a 3 hour drive from our home in southern Vermont. We will definitely be back for another stay-cation! Read less

My husband and I have been stuck in the States since the Covid epidemic hit. Spending the last several months in the Adirondacks waiting for the border to open. Well, it was time for a change of scenery and we meet the travel requirements so Stowe here we come. We had an amazing time at the Resort, the fireworks were beautiful and the dinner was superb. We were unable to find a pet sitter for our senior Dog who can not go hiking anymore. Logan the Desk agent was kind enough to watch our dog for us while we hiked Hell brook trail. Read less

Very enjoyable holiday weekend. Family came in from Kansas. Pleasant helpfuf staff, Logan informed us we could have our meal outside during the 4th event or if we were uncomfortable with the crowds he would have it brought to our room. Later he arranged for transportation to the airport . The outdoor event practiced social distancing without making us feel anxious. We had fun even during the challenging circumstances of covid. Difficult getting pool time but understandable. Beautiful views!!!! Read less
