Family vacations are a wonderful way for families to spend some quality, and sometimes you want to stay in a place where mom, dad, and the kids all have relaxing and fun things to do. Stoweflake Mountain Resort and Spa in Stowe, Vermont is just that resort.
While Stoweflake is popular with girls’ weekends away and corporate retreats, it’s also a wonderful locale for family vacations. The local area offers skiing, alpine sliding, mini golf, zip lining, and factory tours (including Ben & Jerry’s!). There’s so much to do, although you could also just relax too.
The Spa at Stoweflake
My favorite amenity at the Stoweflake Mountain Resort and Spa is the spa – easily the nicest spa I’ve ever visited. With a relaxing waiting area, a fabulous spa shop, and a co-ed Aqua Solarium (complete with mineral soaking tub and waterfall), you’ll want to spend all day here. There are thirty treatment rooms, a fitness center, an indoor pool, an outdoor pool, and a beautiful courtyard. My kids loved hanging out in the courtyard – picking blueberries and checking out the flowers.
There’s also a great sports and fitness center that is complimentary to guests (and offered to others on a membership basis), although an additional fee does apply to certain activities. The fitness center includes a spinning studio, indoor and outdoor pools, Cybex fitness center, women’s fitness room, steam room and sauna, and much more.
The Food at Stoweflake
While there are some great restaurants in the Stowe area, there are also some delicious options right on property. We checked out Charlie B’s, a casual pub-style family-friendly restaurant for both breakfast and dinner and the food was great. Sometimes it’s nice to just be able to eat on property and relax, especially if the weather isn’t great.
The Rooms at Stoweflake
The standard hotel rooms at Stoweflake are nice. They include a gas fireplace, refrigerator, and fabulous bath amenities (from the spa). When I initially visited, they didn’t offer WiFi, but now, their website states that they have complimentary WiFi! I find the rooms to be cozy – although they aren’t small.
