When you're seeking a quintessential New England escape, think Stowe, Vermont and enjoy the four seasons of this quaint town while staying at the Stoweflake Mountain Resort and Spa.
Set along Mountain Road, the property offers awe-inspiring views of the mountains; although the setting does not change, the view does with each season, making return visits at varying times of the year a must.
Winter showcases the snowcapped beauty of the ski slopes, spring the budding leaves, summer the lush green the mountains are named for, and fall the foliage that draws visitors from around the world.

Activities abound at Stoweflake. During snowy winter months, explore the expansive winter wonderland on cross country skis or snow shoes, or sit back and relax on a twilight dog sled ride.
Spring brings life to the trails where you can mountain bike, hike, and get in a quick nine on Stoweflake's golf course.
When summer arrives, there are a million reasons to get outside. Golf, tennis, hiking and biking are all available on the grounds - but you can also ride horseback through the meadows, or ride a horse-drawn carriage like a princess.
Fall brings crisp days perfect for outdoor activities. The famous Vermont fall foliage is stunning from the ground, but it's even better from above with a ride on Stoweflake's hot air balloon.

The heated outdoor pool and hot tub are wonderful at every season - whether surrounded by snow or to cool off during the hot days of summer.
Keep up your exercise regimen at the state-of-the-art fitness center, and indulge in a post-workout sauna or steam room session. Hit up the game room for some old-fashioned family fun. Then walk yourself to their restaurant, Charlie B's, where the apres ski is as exciting as the late night scene.
There's one thing at Stoweflake that stays the same season after season, demanding a visit each time- the Spa. A two-level space, the Spa at Stoweflake welcomes guests in a serene setting upstairs then ushers them downstairs for the treatments of choice, allowing you to feel 100% away from it all.
