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.

Warning! I highly not recommend this place because I ended up paying $800 for 2 nights to stay in a room that looks out to the street on a 1 st floor, before we entered the room I asked the uneducated lady with curly hair that works at the front desk that if she is sure we are having a room with the view cause it’s the 1st floor and she says … Read more
Warning! I highly not recommend this place because I ended up paying $800 for 2 nights to stay in a room that looks out to the street on a 1 st floor, before we entered the room I asked the uneducated lady with curly hair that works at the front desk that if she is sure we are having a room with the view cause it’s the 1st floor and she says it’s a Mountain View room and we will be able to see it in the morning cause it was dark, guess what I’m looking out to a street and trees 😂 I have the same view at my house so I felt like I was at home. So I go up the front desk and tell her this is not acceptable, she tells me the same exact things over and over again and at this point I realized she was DUMB. I tried telling her that what they did is fraud cause Instead of booking online we called in to make reservation to be sure we are getting a high floor Mountain View, i tell her that I would of paid what ever it costs and it’s not about the money cause it my vaca that I’ve been waiting for so long, so thank you for ruining my time that I saved for, if I were you I wouldn’t waste my money at this FRAUD hotel, Stowe has lots of nice hotels for cheaper price...

If you are ok with nothing being open in the Village, this is a fabulous time to visit Spruce Peak. The leaves had already turned so we were late for the fabulous foliage. The trails were wonderful and we had a junior ridgeline suite overlooking mount Mansfield. These rooms seemed to have the best views of the mountain so try and request it early.… Read more

Property is very nice looking. Checked in with no problems. COVID, staff all had masks. Dropped our luggage and went to Solstice for a late lunch. We’re able to sit in a tent outdoors, rather than inside, being COVID aware. Lunch was ok, they have Impossible burgers, if you are vegetarian. Typical hotel food, overpriced and nothing great.… Read more
Property is very nice looking. Checked in with no problems. COVID, staff all had masks. Dropped our luggage and went to Solstice for a late lunch. We’re able to sit in a tent outdoors, rather than inside, being COVID aware. Lunch was ok, they have Impossible burgers, if you are vegetarian. Typical hotel food, overpriced and nothing great. Reserved a studio ridgeline. Got a 2nd floor room that looked at the entrance to the hotel, and shared a balcony with several other rooms. Room was clean, and well appointed. We thought we had made a good choice for accommodations. Until we tried to go to sleep the first night. The bed is as hard as a piece of plywood. They stuck a down pillow top on it, held on by straps. It was lumpy and didn’t do anything for how hard the bed was, just added to the discomfort of pebbles/feathers sticking in you. Worse yet, no mattress cover or fitted sheet. They placed a flat sheet on the pillow top, which came off as you slid in, so you were sleeping on the lumpy pillow top. Unsettling, as this means everyone else who slept there had ended up on the pillow top as well. Not sanitary, I am sure they don’t wash the pillow top. It was impossible to keep the sheet on the bed, so it crumpled under you at the foot of the bed. Then, there was a flat sheet, topped with a comforter and then a sheet over the comforter. That is 3 flat sheets, none that actually stayed on the bed. We were so uncomfortable, we called front desk at 1am, to find out about checking out the next day. Unfortunately, the front desk person had no access to a computer and couldn’t tell us what early check out penalties would be. He just said to call in the am. He indicated it is usually a percentage of the stay for an early check out. I called the next day, and let them know we needed to leave early. They had already taken 2 nights deposit and need a 24 hour notice. So, we hunkered down for another 2 nights, mostly sleepless. We ended up staying 3 nights, instead of 5, with no early check out penalty. They had, however, already charged my card for the entire 5 night stay! Upon check out, I was told they would refund the credit, since we were there 3 nights instead of 5. I dont know of any other hotel that charges you for your stay BEFORE you stay.. Strange business practice. The hotel was empty, it wasn’t like we were taking a room someone else needed. And, so far, no credit has shown on my card. I’d avoid it, it just seems shady to charge you for the whole stay before it’s over...after taking 2 nights up front. We did have room service for breakfast a couple days, and it was quick and hot. Hate to be hard on hotels now, with COVID hurting them, but the bed in this place was unacceptable, for the rates charged. We stayed at Hampton Inns and Marriott Courtyards on our trip to this hotel, and they were all much more comfortable. Read less

hotel was too expensive. The bathrrom was clogged. Not something you'd expect after paying 300$. And then the fridge was not usable. The Fridge was placed in a weird place where the cabinet was blocking the fridge door from opening. Again a simple detail for a house keeping to have missed it.

hotel was too expensive. The bathrrom was clogged. Not something you'd expect after paying 300$. And then the fridge was not usable. The Fridge was placed in a weird place where the cabinet was blocking the fridge door from opening. Again a simple detail for a house keeping to have missed it. The location of the hotel was amazing But the hotel wasnt. Solistice was expensive and the food not so great. Understandably nothing in the hotel was open due to covid(Not saying as a complaint though). My advice, stay in downtown stowe and drive to spruce peak to enjoy the place, restaurants and the ambience. Overall 300$ for a shabby room with no amenities open, simply wasnt worth it. Read less

The room is filthy. Asked for a view and I'm looking T a tree. The bathroom is filthy. I've called for house keeping three times and still no show. Went to get something to eat and food was cold and over cooked. Honestly Subway from the gas station would have been better. I still can't believe I booked this way over rated and over priced dump.… Read more

I will never be back. DO NOT STAY HERE. I'm Honestly more worried about a skin disease from this trash heap. The place stinks like a septic tank that's flooded. You can smell it in the hallway. I knew we should have gone to Jay Peak. They clean and it doesn't smell like a cow pasture. Read less
