“Beautiful resort.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The Stowe Mountain Lodge is a beautiful resort with comfortable upscale amenities. The rooms were comfortable. I stayed in a Timberline Studio. Our gas fireplace was not working but was fixed with a quick phone call.
The kitchen area is small but adequate if needed. The bathroom was large and well appointed. Bedding was very comfortable and as has been mentioned before the sheets were extremely soft but the mattress pad underneath made it extremely warm. Room was well cleaned.
The spa area is very relaxing and worth going to. I did not have any treatments but used the facilities for steam and sauna. Very nice. The outdoor pool was a little cool when I went but if you had the stamina you could use it even in the winter.
The small bar area on the floor above the reception was welcoming. Enjoyed a nice wine and cheese platter before dinner.
All staff was very attentive and friendly. The only issue that we actually ran into was with the restaurant. There was only one open (Solstice) when we went. It was crowded but that really wasn't the problem. The issue was that there was only one waitress for the entire restaurant. The manager on duty helped out but it was less than a relaxing experience. Some of the flavors of the food was very overpowering. I think that if the waitstaff had a little more time they could explain dishes better. We had to actually ask for side dishes. I think that if we were to go at another time when the waitstaff was fully staffed it would have been a much more enjoyable experience.
All in all this resort is very relaxing and well worth the money. I would return again in a minute.

We stayed at the Beautiful Stowe Mountain Lodge in October 2011. It was just a short, 3-day trip to Vermont to drive along the gorgeous roads and visit the Ben & Jerry's factory and a cute little cider place not too far away.

This hotel was gorgeous. We ate at Solstice the first night, and while pricey - the food was delicious. They overcooked my beef tenderloin, but when I mentioned this to the waiter, the chef happily cooked me another one and said it was his fault. Definitely didn't ruin the experience at all. My hubby ordered the tasting menu and the first few courses were far superior to the main... overall a pretty good dinner and a nice splurge. Oh and they threw in a free desert for me for messing up my steak... Excellent customer service, in my opinion.

The room itself was gorgeous. The bathrooms were large and beautiful with tub and shower, and a separate toilet "room". We even had a small kitchenette if we needed it.

The bed was huge and we had a nice sofa as well. We could have brought two more people with us easily to sleep in that room.

My only good/bad thing about the hotel room itself were that there were markings on the sheets. They use eco friendly cleaners (the good), but they don't remove stains... that was the only real downside and slight "gross out" of the trip.

However, the real beauty of our trip was the heated outdoor pool! You enter through an inside room and swim out into the cool fall air. It is the most beautiful view at night as your nestled in the trees and the beautiful lodge. So gorgeous. We loved it so much we have been trying to find a good time to go back!

Would be a beautiful place for a wedding too!

Anyways, mostly good things to say about this gorgeous place!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on a higher floor - the pool area is noisy and if your on a lower floor you can he...

Green Features: While I do enjoy these environmentally friendly cleaning supplies and the general attitude, it was pretty gross to find sheets with markings all over them... I know they were clean, but it was still pretty gross.

Stowe Mountain Lodge is very upscale and obviously expensive, but if you like the convenience of having your skies and boots checked and everthing waiting for you in the morning, then this is the place to be at the foot of the lifts. Paying $20/ day for parking when already check in was an irritation as well as tipping every time you wanted to drive in our out of the resort.
The rooms and bathrooms were lovely especially with the mountain view. There was a small refrigerator, microwave and sink, so you could do minimal cooking in. We brought our own breakfast and coffee was supplied. There are two restaurants, a big outdoor heated pool and two hot tubs. It was below freezing when we were there with a snow storm raging and the pool was not hot enough with the low temperature. All in all, it was a good splurge and the price dropped after Easter, yet the ski conditions were great.

Room Tip: Go at the beginning or end of the season as the rate drop.

Thank you for reviewing Stowe Mountain Lodge for your Vermont ski vacation. Our ski in/ski out access is the only one of its kind in Stowe and offers superb views and access to the trails. The ski valet service will make sure that your skis and boots are ready for you in the morning to only speed up your rush to the slopes. We look forward to welcoming you back to Stowe for your next spring ski vacation.

I had a great time at the hotel with my family. The location is great just steps from the gondolas. The ski valet service is excellent. The only thing the hotel needs to have more restaurants choices. The are only two and the room service that is the same menu as one of the restaurant.

This is a Beautiful resort. The staff is very accommodating. Everyone was very warm and friendly, especially the valet, Adrian. They always address you by name and are quick to get you car, and skis when needed. Skis were always on the car in the morning when i was ready to head out to ski.

Room Tip: Start with a smaller less expensive room, they will usually upgrade you if available.

As soon as we drove up to the Lodge we were greeted by the friendliest Man. Who was the Valet and went to park our Car. ($20 mandatory)
As we walked in we were greeted by the friendliest receptionist we had ever encountered. All in all the whole Staff was great.
The room was so clean that it even stunned this Momma whos constantly reminding her kids not to touch ickyyy things. Not a problem in this Place. EVERYTHING was spotless!!! Bathroom.... omg! Looked like a mini spa. Bedroom... had everything you need and thensome. The sheets on that Bed are unforgettable.
Only thing I didnt like was the Pricing on those Rooms... Yikes.

What a pleasant surprise for a weekend with the kids. The facilities were way better than I expected and the price was reasonable (although it was late march, so the back side of peak pricing). The hotel really seemed like a high end mountain west resort. The staff was extremely responsive and friendly. The concierge gave us excellent advise on dining as well.
The access to the largely outdoor pool was particularly nice: entering through a little indoor section then swim out access.
