I'm told Topnotch was recently completely renovated; so much so that the lobby (main building) was demolished and rebuilt from scratch. I don't know what it looked like before but I have to say that it's a beautiful resort, clean, decorated in soothing and warm tones, with state of the art technology in the rooms (flat screen TV that you can plug your laptop or any other device in for example). And wifi is complimentary everywhere! The Spa is big without becoming "soulless". They have 3 pools, one indoor with sunroof windows and plenty of chairs to lounge in and two outside, including one with salt water which is heated and open all year long. Did I mention the 2 whirlpools, the sauna and the mist room that are accessible to all guests?!
Now enough about the buildings and grounds, let's talk about the service. My husband and I went there during Easter weekend, which is a sort of in-between seasons period for Stowe so a lot of places are closed. Carole, the concierge, and the whole staff at front desk were very good at finding us restaurants that were not only open but in our budget. They also offer a free shuttle service to Stowe village so I didn't have to drive when we went out on the Saturday night. Everyone from the cleaning ladies to the servers at the Roost (Anna) and Flannel (Noelle) to the Sales people (especially Diane) were friendly and nice and happy to help.
I will rate the food when I write a separate review for each restaurant but all in all, we had a fantastic time at Topnotch!
