This hotel delivers an attentive, comfortable stay in a luxurious but eco-friendly environment. This hotel is ideal in every way. The words which best describe Stows Mountain Lodge are beautiful, comfortable, modern, luxurious but not ostentatious and extremely attentive customer-focused staff. First the rooms--- very thoughtfully designed with every aspect in mind for all of the comfort conveniences. Particularly impressive are the size of the rooms. Even the smallest rooms are spacious with a kitchenette area and separate seating area. Other notable features are the mini dishwasher in the kitchenette, the comfortable beds with cotton linen of such a high-thread count that I have never slept in such soft linen and the bathrooms with separate toilet areas apart from the marbled bath area with both a large jacuzzi tub and a glass encased shower. Other nice features of the rooms are the private patio for each room, leather covered studded chairs, electronically-controlled fireplace and a separate storage closet for ski gear.
Also attractive is the ski-in/ ski out location with the gondola which runs straight into the property both summer and winter. The large heated pool and Jacuzzi area are nicely done and nicely designed with a convenient location in the middle of the property. The exercise facility is also top rate with a spacious gym with ample equipment and a variety of exercise classes which will be held even if there is only one guest who shows up for the class. The standout for this property is the friendly, attentive and accommodating staff. At every interaction and turn there is a staff person offering assistance or offering to answer questions. The only negative is that the resort is 6 miles from the heart of the town. Thus, to explore shops and restaurants in town requires some planning. However, it is very uncommon to find a ski property anywhere located at the base of the runs, ski-in/ski-out while at the same time being located in the heart of the town. If I return to Stowe, this will definitely be the place to stay on the next visit.
