Our family has vacationed at Stowe Mountain Lodge for the last four summers. The only other hotels we stay at with family is the Ritz Carlton Properties. Stowe Mountain Lodge has the same level of service as the Ritz Carlton. We stayed in a condo over looking the pool with views of Mount Mansfield highly recommend that view if you are traveling with children. The concierge is key to helping to motivate teenagers. Over three days we went horseback riding inexpensive $40 an hour, on 8 zip lines $100 worth it!, swam in a waterfall after ten minute hike (free), rented bikes and did 10 miles (stopped for ice cream in stowe center). When you got back to resort you could hang in condo on balcony with glass of wine and kids have plenty of room to watch movie in unit. We toasted marshmallows at firepit at pool at night. The condos have kitchettes which comes in handy. Worth the trip if you are looking for relaxation for any age.
