I went back and re-read my first review of this resort to see if anything needed to be altered. I’m delighted to say that this resort delivered again in every way. In my last review I closed by writing, “The Stowe Mountain Lodge will be our ultimate destination in the summer and we can’t imagine staying anywhere else”... how true! There's something about the quintessential Vermont atmosphere, gifted artisians, and everyday people that make me feel like retiring to this lovely state. Even the out of staters, such as myself, who have a gift for zany driving and not so nice gesturing in the city seem to find their manners and affable side up here in this exquisite state. Sorry I digress,...In addition to everything and everywhere that I mentioned in my review from last year...the room was lovely, the bedding soft and dreamy, the room service arrived hot and was very tasty, and the staff was friendly and always ready to help when necessary. My family was happy and in turn I was happy. Some new places to speak of are the golfing at the Stowe Country club, children are 50% off and we received a 15% off coupon from the resort front desk when arriving...shazaam!... and Ryder Brook Golf club in Waterbury Vermont are worth playing. The Ryder club has 9 holes that can be played twice at very reasonable rates with a cart and with a rate for children, as has the Stowe club, it makes for an enjoyable day. For dinner we finally fought the crowd, arrived early, which you simply must do to get in, and ate at the Trattoria La Festa a wonderful Italian restaurant minutes from the resort, you can view this restaurant "virtually" online at their site. They do take reservations as many of the great restaurants do to avoid the crowd and are a necessity for the weekends. I highly recommend this lovely restaurant with excellent food and as reasonable pricing that you will find at one of Stowe’s great restaurants. Very traditional and like my mom and nonni used to make! Yummy deserts as well. Pie In The Sky is a spot we tried for delicious takeout pizza (there are other foods available as well), which delivers to the Stowe Resort, which is convenient especially if the kids have had a long day in the resort pool, which is very glorious! I simply cannot recommend this resort enough AND you can sign up for emails which will allow you to book in advance and save 30-25% off your room rate depending on when you book! I actually phoned to make reservations the day after the 25% rate became extinct and would have had a 20% discount but the reservation specialist I spoke with at the resort removed the valet parking fee to accommodate me and make me feel as if I received a great discount! Now that is wonderful customer service! These resorts have become so pricey that it is nice to know that repeat customers can enjoy a discount and a feeling of gratitude from the resort when booking. If I had to have one negative comment it would be the low flow showers. However, it reminds me of a Seinfeld episode where the super was installing the low flow shower heads, then cut to the scene where Jerry and Kramer have hair plastered to their heads….anyway, it brings a smile to my face and I am no longer disgruntled. Make a reservation at the Stowe Mountian Lodge, where every picture online is EXACTLY how it appears in person, and you will not be unhappy! Be sure to go to McCarthy's for breakfast where the food is delicious, the atmosphere is lively and the staff is genuinely friendly!
