Stoweflake Mountain Resort and Spa Review
Stoweflake has one of the largest spas in the area (along with Topnotch and Stowe Mountain Lodge) and accommodations that range from standard hotel rooms to luxurious suites with fireplaces, refrigerators, double sinks, and whirlpool tubs. One- to three-bedroom town houses sit on the resort's perimeter. Guests enjoy the spa's Bingham hydrotherapy waterfall, an attractive 12-foot rock formation cascading into a hot tub. The spa overlooks an herb and flower labyrinth and is connected to the fitness center via a faux covered bridge. Stoweflake also hosts Stowe's annual Hot Air Balloon Festival.
The first step toward relaxing at this elegantly appointed, colonial-style resort is taking a deep cleansing breath of Green Mountain air. You can do this on a hike, Nordic walk, ski run, or balloon ride. The second step toward relaxing is a spa visit. Let a waterfall massage you in the Aqua Solarium's mineral pool; stretch out in one of the Sanctuary Lounge's fireside chaises; indulge in an aromatherapy massage, Vichy shower, or Shirodhara oil treatment.
