Stowe Mountain Lodge is a luxurious resort hotel in the heart of one of America’s finest ski destinations. Set in Vermont’s Green Mountains, on the slopes of Mt. Mansfield, the hotel offers fine accommodations, sought-after wedding and meeting venues, divine food, and a family-friendly atmosphere. Stowe Mountain Lodge is styled like a Swiss chalet, and contains three hundred lovely rooms and suites.

Surrounding the lodge are mountains, lakes, covered bridges, and woodlands: all the finest that New England has to offer. Tranquility, peace, and natural surroundings are the special gifts granted by Stowe Mountain Lodge. So serene is its location that first-time visitors find it difficult to believe that it is located only three hours from Boston and two and a quarter hours from Montreal. Photo: Stowe Mountain Lodge

Whether visitors come to Stowe Mountain Lodge in the winter or the summer, they will find an almost endless list of things to try, whether they be novices, experienced, timid, or daredevil.

Winter visitors may like the warm interior of the woodcraft shop, where they can learn to make furniture.

Summer visitors will love the infinite number of ways to spend their days. Hiking is always a big draw. Guests can walk along easy lakeside trails, or can climb the steep paths of Mount Mansfield. Canoes and kayaks are available for rent for visitors who wish to enjoy their holiday out on the water.
