“Gorgeous Fall Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

We love to stay at the beautiful Stowe Mountain Lodge with our family in the summer, enjoying the amazing mountain and all it has to offer. The children love the fabulous pool. This fall we returned to the SML for a glimpse of fall and were rewarded with leaf color, sunshine, and a new menu at the Solstice restaurant. The focus on "green" and the presence of Vermont farm to table offerings made the trip as special as ever. Who needs winter at a ski resort! This year-round venue is always a treat. You can search their website for special/seasonal offerings and can count on great service, beautiful rooms, and a delightful experience.

Room Tip: Use SML website and see the photo of the room; also, check the Lodge for the orientation of the room...

The Stowe Mountain Lodge is located high up on the mountain; we actually thought we missed it, because we drove past all of the other hotels - including the Stowe Mountain Resort, which has an unfortunately similar name.

The lodge is grand - movie set ready, with an inventive mix of modern and classic rustic. The main lobby, which is elevated from the check in area, boasts a wall of windows looking directly at the mountain. Although it is fall, I imagine its even more spectacular in the winter. The room has rustic rocking chairs as well as cosy nooks where groups can congregate and sip drinks.

The drinks were excellent - although pricey (NYC prices), as one would expect at a hotel of this level. Our room was amazing - also with a mountain view. It was larger than a typical apartment, with a huge foyer (marble tile) and a bathroom straight out of a magazine: huge marble soaker tub, separate huge glass shower, and high end toiletries. The loo was in a separate small room, making sharing a bathroom easier. Oh - and they had a scale - a really nice touch, although I declined to use it and ruin my trip:) The beds were too comfortable, as evidenced by my falling asleep at 8:30! One small but annoying detail was that the coffee pot (old school, not Keurig) was located on a dresser that had no outlet anywhere near it. I had to move it to the foyer floor in order to brew up enough caffeine to get to breakfast. It's surprising that any detail like that one was overlooked in this well planned resort.

There is a heated pool and hot tub, both of which are lighted at night. Other than that, there is not much to do other than relax. I had called ahead to ask if there were guided hikes and was assured there was. We packed accordingly, but when we arrived were told that they are off property, start at 9 in the morning and do not run every day! A disappointment.

We had an uneven food experience. We were not hungry enough for dinner, so opted for the bar menu: buffalo wings and lobster fritters. We asked for the wings well done, or crispy. The wings were undercooked to the point that they couldn't be eaten, and the lobster fritters were so bread filled that there was no actual taste of fish of any kind. I thought it might be one bad example, so I cut all of them open to reveal...bread. Fortunately, the manager was fantastic, did not charge for the meal, and explained that our feedback will help the chef. Breakfast was delightful - and included in the room price; we had applewood bacon, pancakes with maple syrup and eggs - all were excellent.

This hotel is dog friendly, so if you have allergies, it might be a problem. Overall, a grand hotel, a huge treat and a beautiful escape.

Room Tip: Ask for a mountain view

Our experience was with a bus group, but we were given individual attention. Beautiful surroundings and wonderful attention from all staff members. The pool and its outdoor area was remarkable, and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Next time, we will opt for a room with a fireplace.

Green Features: We were impressed with the environmental practices used by this company, and it was a positive impact on our decision about future stays.

This is a fabulous hotel with excellent service and sustainable. The Soltice restaurant is delicious and organic and locally sourced. The concierge - Peter- was fabulous. I would definitely stay again.

My husband and I stayed at the Stowe Mountain Lodge for a week and had a wonderful time. We booked one of the Timberline rooms that had a fireplace and kitchen. The staff were always helpful and friendly, especially the Bell Staff. The Gondola ride and the Auto Toll Road are a must, and if you charge the fee to your room, you will receive a 25% discount. The fall foliage was gorgeous and in it's peak while we were there. We would definitely return.

This was our second stay at the lodge. It was wonderful both times. This stay We got upgraded to a one bedroom from a studio and it was fantastic. The room was spacious with a full kitchen and cozy fireplace in the living room.
The lodge itself is very clean and well kept. Lots of nice amenities, outdoor swimming pool, fitness center, and great areas for walking outdoors. Staff is very friendly and helpful too. They always make you feel welcome and greet you with a smile .

Location is in a beautiful spot about 8 miles from downtown Stowe, 15 minutes to Smugglers Notch and 10 more minute drive to jeffersonville where foliage was just stunning.
We were glad to see that this visit they eliminated the requirement for valet parking, was optional.

Overall was a fantastic way to spend the weekend and we are looking forward to retuning again.

Room Tip: South wing of the lodge is a bit quieter

We stayed in the private section of the Stowe Mountain Lodge through a condo exchange program in early October. We had never been to this part of the country before and were very pleased. The scenery was incredible. We had five adults in three bedrooms and the accommodations were both spacious and high quality. The staff was attentive - we had complimentary personal concierge, daily housekeeping, continental breakfast and weekend happy hour. The lodge was convenient to all the sights in Vermont and is an easy drive from the Burlington airport.

Room Tip: I don't think there are any poor room locations.
