“Large resort at the base of Mt Mansfield”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

The location is well situated at the foot of the mountain in Stowe with great views. The resort is huge especially compared with everything else in Stowe. It has a more corporate or "wilderness theme park" atmosphere than some of the more intimate local hotels lining the mountain road. The facilities are extensive (especially the pool and fitness areas) and offer a number of options for activities. The rooms are good sized with fireplaces and large marble bathrooms. It is clean and well kept. The dining room and bar felt generic though the food was good. The valet/bell men were very friendly and hustling - though it seems steep for the hotel to be charging $20 per night to park. While there was nothing especially unpleasant about the experience here it lacked the feeling of warmth owing to its large size and ersatz country decor.

Besides the gorgeous setting at the base of Mt. Mansfield and the beautiful facility, I was very impressed with the staff. They were all very engaged and welcoming. The lovely resort and rooms are but a canvas... the employees make it a piece of art.

Absolutely a fantastic resort! They provided the highest level of service one could expect from any top resort. They go way above and beyond for the guests. When the cab broke down on the way from the resort to the airport, the resort gave me a complementary lift.
The golf course is extremely well maintained and a good layout for any level golfer.
I highly recommend this resort.

This is a great summer vacation spot. The town is great with plenty to do. The hotel is terrific with a friendly, helpful staff. The rooms are terrific: large, king size and extremely comfortable bed, jacuzzi bath. The breakfast is included and is outstanding. The pancakes are the best I have ever had. The restaurant in the hotel is excellent and there are great restaurants all around as well. I highly recommend this.

Room Tip: Take the rooms in the area off the street. They have a wide selection.

We stayed here for two nights in July. The lodge is very nice and the surrounding area was breathtaking, however, the service was awful. Prior to arriving, we had our credit card number stolen, so the CC company sent us new cards via overnight delivery to the lodge. We received an email from VISA saying the CCs were delivered and signed for by someone at the lodge at 10:30 am. No one could find the envelope containing our new credit cards!!! The workers there are all very young and don't seem to know what they are doing. Six weeks later we still have not heard from the Lodge regarding the envelope!!!!! If we fall victim to identity theft, we know where it originated. How can you not locate a large envelope that was sent overnight and signed for by someone at your Lodge?!! One of the worst customer service experiences we have ever had.
Stay here for the beauty, but you will not be getting any type of service.
PS: I'd like to get our envelope eventually.

We originally booked a studio, but by signing up for the free loyalty program, they upgraded us to a one BR. They are 950 square feet. At $470/ night all-inclusive, that's about 50 cents per square foot.

Large, sprawling complex built for skiers, but has a nice feel off-season, too.

Rooms are designed for long stays: many have kitchens, washers, driers, etc.

They said the outdoor pool is heated to 87 degrees, but that seems optimistic.

$20/ day mandatory valet parking. Wifi is free.

Our room had a heating and cooling unit which made the most annoying and loud noises. Even with our earplugs in, we could still hear the noise.

Took three different mechanics to finally fix the ice maker.

The south wing is the newer of the two wings. Love the marble and tile they chose when designing the bathrooms.

Night stands on either sides of the bed---yay!

Room Tip: Join the free loyalty program and get an upgrade when checking in.

I stayed at the Stowe Mountain Lodge in late August 2013 for a 3 day conference. The Stowe Mountain Lodge is a beautiful rustic type lodge. I've rated the hotel in several categories below:

Service - from the front desk to the bellman - everyone is very friendly and available to help at your request. For example, you can ask one of the bellman to take you a short distance, in my case 2.5 miles to the entrance of the sterling pond hiking trail, in a Mercedes SUV.

Rooms - rooms are decent, bigger than normal for a standard room and the JR suites have a gas fireplace and separate bedroom. Each of the aforementioned boast a small fridge and kitchenette with some plates. Bathrooms modern and roomy.

Hotel Layout - the footprint of the hotel is a little odd. If you have a room that is accessed by elevators behind the front desk, you are more centrally located to the Conference rooms, restaurant and main lobby of the hotel. However if you are located in the other section of the hotel, you will have to walk a fairly long distance to elevators that will take you to that side of the hotel where the pool and spa are located. There is a secondary entrance near these elevators.

Food - the conference room breakfast was typical Buffett items but all fresh and good. The only issue I had was on the formal night of the conference where they served "rubber" chicken breast and a crab cake the size of a "slider" both not very good. Now the green beans, likely locally grown, were delicious.

View - I had the opportunity to stay in two rooms with different views. One of Mt Mckinley and the front entrance and one of the back of the hotel whic I preferred.

Overall a nice hotel - not the best hotel I've stayed in but I'm sure the atmosphere is much nicer during ski season.

Recommendations - I ran a mile down the road to a waterfall that was a short 10-15 min walk to the 25 foot falls. Also highly recommend the hike to sterling pond which is a 35-45 minute hike depending on experience. This is at the top of smugglers notch ski resort?

Thank you for reviewing your conference at Stowe Mountain Lodge. While we are a great destination for vacations, our meeting facilities offer the same level of service to create memorable events for your business or clients. Thank you for mentioning the recreation as well -- being at the base of Mount Mansfield and Smugglers' Notch creates for amazing on mountain experiences, regardless of the season!
