Our Stowe Mountain Lodge ski trip

stowe mountain lodgeHave you ever been to Vermont? Living in New England, you have a variety of close destinations that make it very easy to plan a last minute vacation. We left last Thursday for a long weekend trip to Stowe Mountain Lodge in Vermont.

I’m not a skier but my husband enjoys it and our son spent a couple days learning how to snowboard. If you are looking for a fabulous family ski vacation, be sure to check out Stowe Mountain Lodge. I am not being paid to write this post, we just really enjoyed our stay!

I did end up getting the stomach bug while we were there which was awful. I ended up loosing a day of fun but the boys still enjoyed themselves.

I was very impressed with the ski/snowboarding school. The amount of instructors and staff available is amazing so the child to instructor ratio is superb!

When I wasn’t sick, I spent the afternoon hanging out in the lodge watching the skiers and my son from the window sipping on hot chocolate and enjoying the peace and serenity. That’s my idea of a ski vacation, the lodge!

My parents and grandparents didn’t come on this vacation and my step daughters had a soccer tournament but my mom is hoping to plan something where we can all head to Stowe mountain as a family. This place truly is a great spot for families.

Both of my grandparents are from Stowe, Vermont so I have family who still live there. I grew up going to Stowe to visit family and always remember be fascinated with the Von Trapp family from the Sound of Music.stowe mountain lodge ski trip You see, my grandmother went to school with one of the youngest Von Trapp’s and lived nearby the family and I remember thinking as a kid, that was so cool!

The resort has many restaurants, a full luxury spa, pool, fitness center and tons of activities for kids. You don’t even really need to leave the lodge if you don’t want to but if you feel like getting out and seeing the sights, everything is within a mile or two. The center of Stowe, about 4 miles from the lodge, has a cute ice skating rink, restaurants, candy store, shops and carriage rides through town. There is a great restaurant called Harrison’s in the center of town, just be sure to make reservations.
