"I’m torn between 3 and 4 stars for stoweflake. We booked it because it seemed to check all the boxes: gas fireplace, Mountain View, prime location on the mountain road, adjacent to the bike path and I discovered it had snowshoe trails on property as well as available snowshoe rentals. Sadly while it did have all of these benefits we were disappointed. Maybe it was the high expectations which is why I’m marking it four stars. We did have a Mountain View, it was ok. Would have been better if I didn’t have to look at the parking lot at the same time so I was underwhelmed. Nothing the hotel can do about that and def better than no view. Room layout was good, fireplace worked well, thermostat worked, room was charming. Bath soap smelled great. Negatives include that the mattress needed replacing, we found it impossible to stop the shower from dripping (though we did get it to only once every few seconds) and the insanity of providing a keurig but NO coffee cups. Maybe this isn’t a big deal for some but in room coffee is a perk I value. Yes, there was coffee available in the restaurant to go and it was free, but it required getting dressed. So my husband, awake earlier than me, went down and got a small cup for each of us. I asked if he could go back and get a tray and four more cups, he didn’t feel like he could take so many at once. So after the first cup my husband went to the coffee shop next door and got a couple of real-size cups. It really put a bad start to what we had thought would be a relaxing, stay in bed too late kind of morning. I guess we could have called down for cups but as only two of the pods were caffeinated coffee we would have needed to ask for that too. It was annoying but a problem we could have avoided the second morning if we had stayed for the second night we booked. Our reasons for checking out early weren’t mostly about the hotel, though had my husband been able to get a good night’s sleep we might not have questioned if we wanted to stay. We did not expect a refund for our skipped night, I think it was about 1:00 when we checked out. But it was surprising that the front desk person didn’t inquire as to what they might have done better. And there really wasn’t anything major but he didn’t ask. It also would have been nice if he’d offered even a small gift certificate for the spa or restaurant or towards a future stay. It’s doubtful we would have used it but it just seems like a good practice. As I’m writing this though I’m remembering that I did get a call a couple days ahead of our stay offering to make reservations and the person was helpful in answering my questions. So maybe the front desk person just skipped a beat and isn’t reflective of their standard of service. Some training could help with that. Also I should say that it was a great value for the price. If I wanted a better view I could have paid three times as much and stayed at Spruce Peak. We considered it but I wanted to be in the village. So I guess my e"
"Stoweflake is in a great location and, if attention were paid to some details, it would be excellent. However, there were several issues, including very uncomfortable beds. (I can't imagine how old the mattress was--the springs were totally shot. And the sheets were too small for the bed and kept coming off.) However, the bed and bath were clean. Like a lot of hotels in Stowe, everything is slightly worn. Some of the bath amenities were empty. (We bring our own, so no problem.) The front desk was pleasant but was unable to give us information we needed---like where to walk our dogs since every exit near the room except for the one to the parking lot was blocked by snow--and the parking lot was slushy and icy with huge icy puddles. They did eventually shovel out one other exit. Although this is high season, somehow they didn't seem prepared. The parking lot was in much worse shape---despite the very audible plow coming through at 5:45 am---than at other hotels. The concierge had offered to email us a list of local restaurants and then never did. It's all in the details."
"Weekend getaway, wonderful stay. There is a nordic ski trail that goes right into the resort, you can ski right up to the firepit. Room was nice, staff very friendly and helpful. Perfect central location to all the good restaurants, coffee shops, and close to the ski area. "
