Stayed here as part of our New England road trip and could not have been made more welcome. Service was fabulous from everyone we came into contact with. The room was fantastic. We are at Flannel and really enjoyed it. Highly recommended

Great resort with Spa, Indoor Pool, Jacuzzi, Sauna plus outside heated pool, jacuzzi. Several fire pits made it fun to sit out in the crisp fall air. The restaurants were great, but most of all the staff was OUTSTANDING. Beautiful resort!

Purposefully advertising one price and then adding a resort fee in the fine print is definition of deceptive business practice in my books. I try to avoid places that charge a resort fee but got tricked by this place. That's how good they are at hiding their fees. When we asked for the list of "amenities" that the resort fee covers, it reads like a list of things we got for free at the inn we stayed in the night before. Water, local telephone calls, ironing board, alarm clock, housekeeping are considered luxury items now??? Come on! When will customers say enough is enough. For me, will not be returning here.

Hello Trang V, I'm sorry to hear that our resort fee was a disappointment to you. It is a standard industry fee at full service resorts that is noted on all of our booking platforms and included in the confirmation letter provided at time of booking. The fee covers a variety of additional experiential amenities including access to all three pools on property, live entertainment, on demand shuttle service, daily scheduled activities including pickle ball, frisbee golf,tennis clinics, water aerobics, guided walks/hikes, daily tea and cookie service, pop up spa events including juice bars, specialty vendor trunk shows and of course transportation to the fantastic skiing opportunities at Mt. Mansfield every winter. I hope you'll visit us again in the future so that we may offer the opportunity to help you explore the full value in our resort fee and turn your experience into a desire to return every year. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly, as it would be our pleasure to help you plan any return visit. Kind Regards, Team Topnotch

At Topnotch you won't have to do much driving to find some fun. Surrounded by 120 wooded acres, this high-end mountain resort has everything a family needs right on property. Start with a phone call to Carol the concierge, who rules the resort with benevolent efficiency. Before you check-in, Carol will give your the lay of the land. She knows what's what. TIP: You will want to book your Stowe Adventures and horseback in advance, don't sweat the dining reservations--we didn't have any troubles getting tables. We did book a trail ride before we arrived. Unfortunately, Carol didn't warn us that the rather surly man who runs the stable is extremely punctual. Rides start promptly on the hour, we were 5 minutes late (I blame the sublime pool setting) and missed our ride. On the plus side, we weren't charged for it, on the downside, we got chewed out by a local for being late. Not fun. Next to the stables you can also rent bikes to use on the nearby bike path. The Stowe Recreation Path is flat and easy for kiddos (it's also great for running--it's got a lot of shade). The trail runs five miles along West Branch River into Stowe's main town. If you want a challenge, stop along the trail at the corn maze. We didn't try it, but if you want to call to get info (802-371-9999). Topnotch has a huge fitness facility. They have lap-sized pools both indoors and outdoors, fitness classes, a room full of cardio machines, personal training and an enormous workout room with weights. There's also a full spa and spa shop. I didn't have time to visit the spa, but did drool over the menu. Topnotch also has a huge tennis program. With both indoor and outdoor courts, this is a great place to take a lesson or join a clinic. They are a highly-rated tennis resort and have a wonderful staff on hand. For cyclists, Vermont offers lots of challenges. Mr.Momtrends brought along his road bike and got in three long rides. WARNING: Be careful of the local drivers, not all of them love tourists on expensive road bikes, but don't worry, if you take them on the rec path they will be fine. There's also plenty of mountain biking in the area too. Your family won't get bored in Stowe. Just ask Carol at the concierge desk for ideas if you need help. We saw lots of families heading our for fishing, canoeing and kayaking. And we did a bunch of hikes. Jesse, the Experience Manager, who oversees activities at the resort says many families discover the joy of the outdoors for the first time at Topnotch. If hiking is new to your family and you've got young kids, there's and convenient Mikey the Moose trail right on the property. It's an easy loop from the property where kids can safely spot wildlife and discover the fun of trail time without having to venture too far. If your family is ready for more, Topnotch offers a free shuttle to Mt.Mansfield for hiking--they'll drop you at the trail head and come pick you up. Want more details?

Hello momtrends, Thank you very much for your exceptionally thorough narrative of your experiences with our property. Needless to say you covered a lot of ground during your visit. We're so happy Carol and Chad were able to offer some insights into local attractions. Hopefully you'll have an opportunity to join us this winter to take part in one of the many seasonal attractions that Stowe plays host to. Kine Regards, Team Topnotch

Great views from our King room! Alan the doorman/ greeter/bellboy/conscierge and driver was so welcoming and helpful. TopNotch very fortunate to have him! Not our first trip and not our last. One of the best if not the best resort in Stowe! Shop well for pricing, a lot of variation from one site to next. I’m sure Top Notch will match the best you find on line! Complimentary coffee available at 4:30 am for insomniacs like myself!
