Known as the ski capital of the East, Stowe has long been a retreat for New Englanders escaping to an idyllic winter weekend.

Previously Stowe Mountain Lodge, the newly named Lodge at Spruce Peak is the centerpiece of a nearly 200-acre property that houses the hotel as well as Spruce Peak village, with myriad shops and cafes situated around a spacious skating rink.
