Stowe Mountain Lodge Opening Mid-June

The luxurious Stowe Mountain Lodge, set to open mid-June 2008, is nestled between Spruce Peak and Mount Mansfield in Stowe, Vermont. Stowe Mountain Lodge is setting a new standard in eco-friendliness, luxury and aesthetics in an up-market, eco-conscious community. Guests can rest assured that they will be thoroughly pampered, while at the same time having the assurance that their impact on the pristine mountain environment will be minimal.

For more than a century the town of Stowe has been attracting discerning travelers, skiers and snowboarders from around the world. The exquisite beauty of the area with its covered bridges, rambling woodlands, sparkling lakes and rugged, majestic peaks keep visitors coming back to this New England town time and again.

The $200-million Stowe Mountain Lodge offers superb snow skiing, hiking and world-class golf on a new wilderness-style golf course that meanders through tranquil forests and meadows. A branch of the renowned Dallas-based wellness center, the Cooper Institute, has been incorporated into the lodge, to offer guests all the therapeutic benefits of a top-notch health spa. Whether visiting in winter or summer, guests can enjoy swimming in the outdoor heated pool, followed by a superb and healthy pool-side meal. A visit to the Stowe Mountain Lodge beauty salon prepares guests for a night of partying in the magnificent ballroom with a floor to ceiling wall of glass offering an awe-inspiring view of the mountains.

The multi-national staff at Stowe Mountain Lodge will ensure that guests are well cared for. Ski valets, car jockeys and bellmen will be on call at any time of the day. Other perks at the lodge include twenty-four hour room service and twice daily housekeeping, as well as concierges to stock up room fridges with guests’ favorite food and drink, and even warm your ski boots. A naturalist is on the permanent staff of Stowe Mountain Lodge to lead mountain-side safaris through wildlife habitats, offering fascinating details of the surroundings. Children will be given the opportunity to pick their own vegetables from the organic farm, which the chef will then prepare for them.

Stowe Mountain Lodge is the first deluxe hotel to be built in Stowe since the 1950s and making it even more special is the fact that it is situated at the main ski lifts, offering guests quick access to the slopes. Stowe Mountain Lodge integrates two distinctly different ski areas – Spruce Peak, which is favored by beginner and intermediate skiers, and Mount Mansfield, which offers even the most experienced skier an exciting challenge. Certainly there are many reasons for snow skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts to make their way to Stowe Mountain Lodge.
