Why Stay At Topnotch Resort and Spa
It's the quintessential New England hideaway: 68 cozy guest rooms and a lobby-side fireplace in a three-floor lodge nestled among pine trees, with grand touches such as an acclaimed 30-room spa and a nationally ranked tennis center.
Opened in 1959 as the first full resort at Stowe, VT, Topnotch secured a choice location at the base of the state's tallest peak, enclosed by maples and pines. Upon arrival, North Face-wearing travelers often head right for a pair of Rossignols from the Nordic-style rental barn, before spending the better part of the day hitting the slopes on Topnotch's 120-acre grounds. Be sure to save some energy for the hotel's après-ski: even for expert athletes, the post-ski experience gets almost as much attention as the actual schussing at the three-floor lodge. Opt for a hot-stone massage in the 30,000-square-foot megaspa or lounge with a hot cocoa near the large fire that burns in the hotel lobby. The 68 English Country-style rooms, of the toile and ruffled-bed-skirt variety, are neat as a pin and flooded with sunlight throughout the day.
Topnotch's indoor-and-outdoor 10-court tennis center is ranked number one in New England. You won't want to miss the views toward the majestic Green Mountains.
Winter isn't the only time worth a visit. In the summer or in leaf-peeping season, you can hike the hillside trails and shop for cheese and crafts in the white-steepled town.
