Stay in Stowe Vt

Reviewed 20 january, 2022

Great first impression with the front desk. The room was comfortable and clean. The lodge was cozy with a nice common area. Once Covid is over and the food service is fully functional the rating would be higher. Easy to walk across the street where there are two restaurants.

Most unprofessional experience I've ever witnessed, especially in such an "upscale" town.

Reviewed 7 january, 2022

I stayed here for one evening in December of 2021. I had looked forward to it prior, seemed like a tranquil place to relax, sadly I was mistaken. I don't know if it was because I'm a single woman, and this is more of a family style lodge? Or that I am a single woman and there was no proof to how poorly I was treated by this company, because I was alone with no witnesses. I mistakenly booked my first initial stay for the wrong days. Called the hotel, no answer, left message, no response. $350 + hard earned dollars that I missed out on, for the "trail king suite" I took that loss, it was my mistake, I rebooked for the correct days and wasn't going to say anything upon check in, which had been very unprofessional. I was given my keys and no info about the lodge, a very young girl that didn't check my I'd, and didn't even let me finished writing my signature upon sign in. At this point I was still hopeful about relaxing and enjoying this place, crazy I know, but was being really hopeful. I was first going to see if the stay was worth it. I'm not a person that likes to complain unless the issue is beyond rediculous. Once again to my surprise, The room was nothing as I expected it to be. The number one issue I had was, it was a freezing night/ blizzard, windy while I was there, I had a thermostat in the room, but it was not connect to anything. 65° the whole time I was in that room. Heard a snow blower that sounded like a generator ALL NIGHT LONG. Fire alarm also went off earlier in the night. Didn't realize the thermostat issue until waking the next morning. I froze all night waking multiple times shivering. No extra blanket at the foot of the bed. I booked the "deluxe queen" room since the " trail king suite " was no longer available for this selected stay. I payed over 100+ more dollars than the initial room that caught my eye, for a much more mediocre room. The only " deluxe" item this room included was the bath tub, In my opinion. Everything else was much lower quality than your basic cheap hotel. ( Days inn ECT) If you like getting out of a tub into a 60° room, then this is the place for you. Dirty tiled shower floor as well You will also be awarded with a dresser, a tiny fridge, tv, a chair, and a bed with a nice thin blanket with black ink stains all over it. Maybe a few dimly lighted lamps as well, to hide how dingy it actually is. Don't forget those "wonderful honey comb robes" that are about the size for a toddler. I am a 5'3" slender woman and still didn't cover me barely. You will also be awarded with a paper thin door you can hear others through, and windows that let in a large draft. The including breakfast, was pathetic. Didn't start until 8am which was just around the time I was leaving, and only had sit down options, no eggs or bacon, " normal stuff" just fruit parfaits and croissants. nothing to grab and go. I decided to skip the breakfast, and check out early, where I did decided to voice my opinion about the lack of heat, and possibly getting a discount for this stay or a future one, for my troubles. Then the woman at the desk informs me " you would have to wait for our manager to help you out with that, hes here at 8." As to what I responded " It is past 8, it's actually 8:20 I really didn't want to ask but this place wasn't as nice as I expected it to be. I know I never say the right things, but thanks anyways" and I left my keys and left that awful place. I have told all my local friends to not bother with this lodge, unless you want to be treated less than a human being. I have also told my traveling friends from Big sky Montana, to never stay at field guide lodge, or in Stowe Vermont for that matter, because you are all a bunch of money hungry snobs that think you are better than every other human being on earth. I hope you enjoyed my money I spent to enjoy myself, that rather caused me huge headache. Hope you improve your lodge a little. I'm sure you have a some saved up from each person that is unlucky enough to choose this place, and get scammed by you. $700+ dollars for one night stay, and not even a 30% off discount card. Greedy, very greedy is all I have to say. You do recieve two chocolate chip cookies upon arrival though, I guess that's supposed to make up for it all.

Romantic stay in beautiful Stowe

Reviewed 14 december, 2021

Girlfriend and I stayed at Field Guide Lodge for two nights, arrived just in time for the snow. Check in was very easy through sms, ad well as scheduling the hot tub. Hotel lounge was very decorated, lovely decorations and a comfy fireplace. Our king room was very large, had a tv, couch, mini fridge and a very thoughtful welcome package that included local chocolates, local made soap, a pretty postcard that we sent to our family at the post office, and some popcorn. The bed was extremely comfortable, was sturdy but not too much, just the right amount to fall asleep. The breakfast was great and different from the usual American breakfast: the first day we ate eggs on bread with hummus and arugula, delicious overnight oats with pumpkin seeds and cranberry, and some fruit. The next day we had salad with hummus, the same overnight oats, and croissants. We stayed in low season so not many other guests around. We had a great time and will visit again in our next stay in Stowe!

Great interior design!

Reviewed 30 november, 2021

This was a beautiful hotel located near Stowe ski Mountain. When you enter, the lobby is just gorgeous. There's beautiful interior design everywhere you look. We went upstairs to the room. The hallway is quite narrow. When we entered our room, was just beautiful interior design and a beautiful bathroom. Everything remodeled and upgraded. We loved everything about the room. The breakfast was just wonderful with lots of treats available including a nice scone as well as cinnamon apples and also some Chia and coconut oatmeal. They also had La Colombe coffee which is amazing! The only thing that was strange to me was that while we were in the room, we could very clearly hear people walking outside in the hallway. I was awakened by this several times at night. I’m not sure how good the sound insulation is in the hotel. And I'm assuming this would be an issue if there were many people staying in the hotel. There is free parking available in the hotel parking lot.

Great mountain location

Reviewed 24 november, 2021

Exceptional lodge for the price. Breakfast was exquisite. It wasn't the typical breakfast with eggs and waffles, but it was SO WELL CRAFTED. My family love it. Such good taste in design. We will definitely come back here.
