We first visited Stowe the winter of 1962 and were thrilled with the skiing conditions. We then returned year after year, both in winter and in summer. On each occasion, we tried different hotels, motels, lodges and B&B's, until we had stayed at almost every listing in the Stowe Visitors Center.
Now 50 years later, we can honestly say, " We know Stowe, like the back of our hand" So what can we share? Well on one hand, many of the lodgings have gotten older like ourselves. A few have been extensively refurbished, some a little and some only cosmetically. Therein lies the dilemma! What are your priorities and what do you choose?
When you return to a favorite location, only to be disappointed, you are not likely to forget, nor return. So you stick to the best! Also what helps in this decision making process is that as we age we seek out the creature comforts ahead of other considerations. Then along came the Stowe Mountain Lodge. Yes it is new (er), but it is almost in a class by itself. Comfort and Service reign supreme, but alas at a price.Like so many things in life, sometimes you have to compromise. On our first summer stay, my sciatica was troublesome and so the staff kept my car near the front door, a costly necessity!. On a subsequent visit, I parked our car, thus saving a few $$. Meals were taken both at the Lodge $$$$ and around town$$-$$$. There are quite a few good eateries in and around the Stowe Area. But when it comes to lodging, the Stowe Mountain Lodge is at The Pinnacle.
