The resort’s footprint is in the shape of a rectangle, surrounding an inner courtyard of blossoming English Gardens and manicured lawns. The building allows resort guests all weather passage to the spa, the sports and wellness center, indoor pool, restaurant, and the event spaces.
Accommodations in the main building feature spacious and comfortable guestrooms. Rooms offer all amenities and most are appointed with gas fireplaces.

Stoweflake offers a wealth of year round activities, both on-property and nearby.
Probably the most popular pastime at Stoweflake is enjoying “me” time at the spa. This world class facility, winner of multiple awards from major magazines, has 30 rooms and offers some 120 treatments which include Eastern Body works and Ayurvedic therapies. Luxuriate in their signature 80 minute Green Mountain Coffee Body Treatment, a revitalizing coffee grinds exfoliation, a Dead Sea Mud wrap, and a full body Coffee Oil Massage. Before or after your treatment, relax in the spacious and tranquil men and women sanctuaries where you can sweat your toxins away in the steam rooms, saunas and whirlpools.
Make sure to allocate time for the Aqua Solarium, a coed area with massaging waterfalls and a heated soaking pool with mineral salts from Hungary. Complete your relaxation with a slow walk along the circles of the meditative Labyrinth in the courtyard.
Sports and Wellness Center
The Sports and Wellness Center makes it easy to maintain your fitness routine. You can exercise in the fully equipped Cybex center, take a challenging spinning session, or join any one of the 60 weekly classes including Yoga and Pilates.
The heated indoor and outdoor pools are perfect for vigorous swimming or just to unwind after a day packed with outdoor action.
If you enjoy hiking you’ll find 5 kilometers of trails right on the properties as well as many more in the neighborhood.
For an easy walk take the paved Recreation Path to the village below or uphill to Mt. Mansfield. The area is also perfect for mountain biking, trekking to hidden waterfalls, and serious climbing.
Golf lovers will enjoy the nine hole par-three course on the property or some of the premiere New England 18-hole championship courses nearby.
You can also experience a hot air balloon flight above the rolling green mountains, taking in the unfolding vistas. If you are with a group, you can all enjoy tethered rides in the resort’s courtyard. Hot air ballooning has to be prearranged.
Water sports are available nearby at the Waterbury Reservoir, where you can book a canoe, kayak, stand up paddle boat, or just relax on the picturesque meadows overlooking the pristine lake.
Downhill skiing is the most popular winter sport in the area and the slopes are just a short shuttle ride away from the resort.
