Stowe Mountain Lodge

7412 Mountain Rd., Stowe, Vermont, 05672, USA

At the base of the ski slopes, this lodge would be king of the hill for its location alone, but a stay here also affords many perks. The rustic-meets-contemporary accommodations run the gamut from studio to three-bedroom units, many with outdoor terraces. A spa and salon, a massive fitness room, an 18-hole golf course, a game room, and a huge heated outdoor pool also number among the amenities; "wellness lodges" include oversize hot tubs and saunas. The Adventure Center, flanked by an outdoor ice rink at the new Spruce Peak Plaza, is dedicated to children's activities. With its vaulted ceilings, chic furnishings, and refined New American fare—ahi tuna, lamb chops, giant raw oysters—the on-site restaurant Solstice lives up to its glowing name and will be hard to resist as it and Hourglass, the adjoining cocktail lounge, twinkle on a snowy evening. In winter, you can watch skiers on the mountain from your room or, with gondolas at the doorstep, join them in no time at all.
