Array of amenities for families and couples, including multiple pools, a 35,000-square-foot spa and a game room
Daily resort fee added per night
Today, Stowe teems with high-end resorts, but Topnotch Resort stands out in more ways than one. Rooms lean toward the smaller side, but guests appreciate their cozy vibe, modern furnishings and comfortable beds. The lobby's stone walls and large mounted moose head evoke a classic ski-lodge atmosphere, but the 35,000-foot spa space is anything but dated. Multiple pools, a co-ed sauna and an indoor hot tub with a waterfall tantalize spa-goers, as do the countless available spa services. Another crowd-pleaser: the zesty culinary offerings available at the two on-site dining venues, Flannel and The Roost. What's more, the staff is said to be nothing short of topnotch.

Critic Reviews



On 120 acres overlooking Mt. Mansfield, this posh property has a contemporary look and an outstanding spa. Floor-to-ceiling windows, a freestanding fireplace, and heavy stone walls distinguish the lobby.

Travel + Leisure


Re-opened in 2013 following a nearly 15 million dollar renovation, this 68-room Vermont ski lodge located at the foot of Mount Mansfield offers a cozy experience with an updated look. The lobby and guest rooms have been redone, while the restaurant (formerly know as Norma's) reopened as Flannel, a bistro featuring seasonal and local ingredients.


Topnotch Resort has impeccable city-meets-country minimalist design and a huge selection of on-site activities and features. Rooms are stylish and range from classic Deluxe Rooms with woodsy accents to multi-room vacation homes.



This trendy hotel is close to the ski slopes. Set away from the road, it offers a quiet and upscale retreat.



An on-site Nordic center outfits guests with snow-shoes and cross-country skis, and offers lessons. February is one of the best times for ice fishing in Vermont, and the resort offers casting clinics and can arrange for guests to try their luck at some of the prettiest lakes in the state.
