I stayed at Topnotch Resort for Memorial Day weekend. It was my first time in Stowe, Vermont and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. It is now safe to say, that Stowe is one of my favorite towns ever. This says a lot considering I've traveled to some amazing places in Europe.
Topnotch definitely made the experience memorable. The guest service was perfect- all of the staff was beyond friendly and knowledgeable. Check-in and check-out were seamless- no troubles. The property itself was beautiful - we had room 312 which gave us perfect views of the pool and Mt.Mansfield. The hotel concierge was very helpful with helping me plan a surprise weekend for my boyfriend. They definitely had a way of making me feel welcomed even prior to my arrival.
Activities in the area are plentiful and the only downside is that we didn't have enough time to do everything we wanted in one weekend (we will definitely be back). We rode bikes on the recreational path, drove up the toll road and hiked to the chin of Mt.Mansfield, checked out Bingham Falls, explored town, etc. The resort's website is great at helping you plan your stay.
The food at both The Roost and Flannel was delicious and fresh. The most noteworthy of course were the pancakes. Holy yum! I don't even like pancakes, but these were amazing. My boyfriend and I had them every morning we were there. We asked the chef for the recipe but it's a secret- and that is totally fine with us. We contemplate making the drive up from NYC just for the pancakes.
Noelle, our waitress at Flannel, was lovely. She has been with the hotel for many years so she was extremely knowledgeable of the area and gave great recommendations.
Also, I don't really like smores but being able to rmakes smores at the fire pit was an experience!
Stowe in general was fantastic. My boyfriend and I cannot wait to come back to Topnotch Resort.
