Nestled at the base of Mt. Mansfield in a fabled destination celebrated for its pristine beauty, this elegant newcomer, debuted in 2008, has quickly established itself as one of New England’s premier retreats. With its façade of woven timber and shingles, the six-story Lodge draws on the architectural tradition of turn-of-the-century summer camps. Beautifully appointed guest rooms, framed by oversize windows, are oriented to the rugged mountain landscape. Guests have access to otherwise-private Stowe Mountain Golf Club, a challenging wilderness design set at 1,800 feet that slaloms around gurgling brooks, a sparkling lake, and a dense forest.
