Our family of 5 has stayed at SML twice now and on both visits we have been very happy with our choice. We have stayed winter and summer. SML is an architectural gem designed to blend into the mountain landscape. It reminds me of a modern day version of the grand hotel like those built years ago to provide a full service guest experience. Under one roof there is everything you need. The rooms are very clean (this is important to me), modern with spacious baths and a well designed, small galley kitchen and impeccable decor. I really have to commend the designers and architect who built this hotel. The lobby is grand and the design elements are mountain chic. What is so nice is that even though this is a grand hotel the vibe is casual. We enjoyed our summer visit with the alpine slide, bungee jump, grand 4th fireworks and the outdoor pool. In winter the access to the slopes is quick and easy.
The pros: Architectural gem, stunning design. Great location, close to all Stowe has to offer, a lodge like you find in the 5 star locations out west, friendly and courteous staff around the resort. Peter the Concierge, was very helpful and knowledgable with regard restaurants and activities. Housekeeping staff, particularly Marua, deserves a special mention for her perfectionism and friendliness. Beautiful pool and nice onsite restaurants with great kids menu and kids activities. Wonderful fireworks, access to hiking and MT Mansfield. Great skiing and huge slope side day lodge. Pet friendly with respectful dog owners.
Cons: only con is the game room. The size is small and the machines are what you would expect in a cheesy boardwalk motel. The games do not fit the hotel. A ping pong table, foosball and some classic pinball machines are more fitting. Mgmt please take a close look at this area. The money grabbing try to win a toy, electronic gizmos does not make any sense here. Also, adding a small water park on land near the hotel would be great to add more family activities for the summer and winter.
If you are looking for casual luxury then this is the place!
