“Stowe's gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

Staying at the Lodge for the second year for some spring skiing and absolutely loving it! We've been regulars at Stowe since 90's, and stayed around the village a lot. This hotel takes the whole skiing experience to a new level of enjoyment, where you feel super-comfortable, welcome and well taken care of. Coming back next year? You bet!

It's hard to beat the ski valet and Stowe has diverse terrain and great snow. The lodge is luxurious and the service is excellent. The outdoor pool is attractive. Everything is pricy, but it's good quality. I would definitely return.

Thank you for your review of Stowe Mountain Lodge! We are pleased the ski valet makes skiing with the family that much easier. In planning the lodge and services we provide, we take into consideration what will provide not only the home-away-from-home feel, but also anticipate your needs. We hope to welcome you back to Stowe, Vermont for your next ski vacation.

Overall, my family had a wonderful time at the Lodge. The rooms were very nice, the kitchenettes were ideal and the staff was very helpful and friendly. My kids and husband loved the ski valet which made skiing so easy. I wasn't skiing, but still had plenty to do between the spa, classes at the gym, the heated pool and the wonderful fire in the lobby. The cleaning service only did an average job cleaning the bathroom everyday. They left the tooth paste marks from my children on the sink counter every day and I cleaned that up. My one major criticism is that we were contacted by the concierge ahead of time with a list of services offered. One of them was to have a cake delivered. It was my husband's and daughter's birthday and we were going out to dinner with the whole family at the restaurant there. I ordered a red velvet cake with butter cream frosting to be served as dessert after dinner. The cake was chocolate, the frosting tasted like crisco and powdered sugar and the cake was still frozen when it was served, despite the fact that I checked in at the desk early to remind them. It was very disappointing and I would have said something, but no wait staff came any where near us once the cake was served. Overall both the food and service at the semi-empty restaurant was decidedly mediocre. I couldn't recommend the resort more, but go in to Stowe for a nice dinner out.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful escape to Stowe Mountain Lodge! We’re happy to hear about guests experiencing many of the other services we provide when skiing isn’t in mind.
We’re also sensitive to the detail involved in planning birthday surprises. I have shared your dining experience with our Food & Beverage team so as to avoid a similar experience.
Thank you, again! We look forward to your return.

We had a great experience at this resort. Upon out very late arrival the restaurant was closed, but the staff still out together a very nice quick meal for my husband. In addition, we returned late from dinner one evening and desired a small snack and they opened the closed retail store just for us. The rooms and spa are also very nice.

This is our second year staying at the Stowe Mountain Lodge. We were amazed by the kind and helpful staff last year and this year was just as wonderful. Every employee from the valet to housekeeping made our stay memorable. I wish I could give all of their names. We stayed in a studio which was perfect for our family of 4. The kitchenette is ideal for a quick meal. The rooms and food is not inexpensive but I truly believe it is worth every penny. We will be back again!

It was all new for us. Vermont, Stowe, the Lodge... We went their by default because we did not want to impose 3 hrs of time difference on the kids by going to ski out West. We even feared the low altitude of the slopes. WHAT AN AMAZING SURPRISE !!!
Obviously, out of all years, we were more than lucky with the amount of snow. Every morning, fresh packed powder and blue skies.
Stowe Mountain Lodge is the epicenter of a perfectly well organized resort. Around the "evolution card" which is a state of the art system allowing you to pay for everything, from the ski rentals to the restaurant on top of the mountain, you cannot have more flexibility. By day to day and simply show up at a lift the following morning for your card to be automatically reactivated. Do the same with your skis. All you need to do is tell the Lodge's ski valet that you are keeping them an extra day.
We had a 1 BDR suite with a beautiful balcony, It felt like a home of our own. Very spacious, fully equipped including an elegant kitchen.
The heated outdoor pools and hot tubs are a great way to end your day and watch the sunset with the kids, after several of hours skiing.
The food is as organic and natural as it gets. The staff is Vermont style: Polite, smiling and servicing within the rules... meaning that it is a bit hard to get them to be creative but who can blame them when the basics are so efficient ?
A special mention of high quality standards to Peter, one of the 3 great concierges.
We were frustrated to only try a few of the restaurants available around. There are so many in this charming small town. We liked Pie Casso a lot but fell in love with the Matterhorn, a kids friendly bar with incredible food and variety. A special mention as well to the Cliff House, on top of the gondola, with their original dishes, such as a cheddar fondue.
A memorable moment was the dog-sledding adventure we went on as a family
We cannot wait to return to Stowe and the Stowe Mountain Lodge

Room Tip: 1 BDR suite 393 or similar is the best way to go, with space, views of the slopes and the pool
See more room tips
Green Features: We tip our hats to the constant efforts deployed by the hotel, from healthy food to energy saving technics

Nothing makes us happier than to hear you felt at home while in residence with us! Stowe, Vermont has had an incredible year of snow and we are thrilled you were able to take advantage of that, the local restaurants and all we have within the Lodge. Please join us again for your next ski vacation!

When you arrive, you leave your car and all your luggage and skis in your vehicle. While you check in, they bring all your stuff to your room. It's not an option, this is how they did it. I thought it was great! It really makes you relax, which is wonderful after a long drive! It would have been nicer to have 1 indoor and 1 outdoor hot tub for those really cold days. The spa does have an indoor hot tub, so if you are having a treatment done, make sure you allow enough time to enjoy the hot tub, sauna, steam shower.....The restaurant was very good as well. We would definitely go back again!

Green Features: They had recycling and provided environmentally-friendly hair products.
