Cozy up (and get snowed in) at a Vermont lodge this winter — or wait until summer and enjoy concerts and top-notch golf!
Where: Stowe Mountain Lodge. 7412 Mountain Rd., VT. 888-478-6938; www.stowemountainlodge.com
What’s special: Located at the base of the mountain, the resort commands spectacular views. In the lobby, a wood-burning fireplace and leather couches of vibrant oranges, pinks, reds and blues invite guests to linger. And the expansive walls of windows bring the beauty of the mountain peaks inside. Accommodations feature bamboo bed linens, goose down-feather beds and floor-to-ceiling windows for breathtaking mountain views. The lodge promotes farm-to-table culinary delights; a luxurious spa offers waiting areas with mountain views. And just opened is the 420-seat Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, which hosts a variety of music, dance, and cinema performances. The ski valet allows guests to ship their equipment in advance and have it waiting for them when they arrive with boots heated, equipment tuned, and gear brought up to the lift or gondola. Lift tickets and lessons are secured in advance so guests will not have to wait in lines. In the summer enjoy a spectacular golf course.
