We love coming to Stowe Mountain Lodge every year. This was the first time we used VRBO to find alternative access to the resort by dealing directly with the unit owner vs the Hotel. Aside from that everything is as if you are staying at the resort. Valet, Check-in is at the reception. Card Keys are issued by the reception and additional keys, charges are all handled by the resort reception. The only difference is if one desires unit cleaning and sheet change service you will have to pre-arrange with the owner's management company as oppose to the resort's maid service. This can be easily set up with them and at times that are convenient to the renter.
This property is very well maintained and dealing with the owner was a delight. The unit is nicely equipped with all amenities as described. We highly reccomend this unit and will definitely rent it again on our future trips.
The kids loved the heated pool and the game room. The hour glass bar does offer great appetizers and we loved their wings and cheese sampler plate. Sunday morning we tried the breakfast buffet at Solstice restaurant which we highly recommend too.
