Topnotch is a Stowe icon located on the Mountain Road as you head up to Mt. Mansfield and the ski area. The front portion of the property is clasic Vermont Lodge- massive fireplace with "Mikey the Moose" keeping watch over the sitting area - game room and tavern. Great views of the mountains from the lodge area. In the back is the guest rooms, restaraunt and the famous spa.
Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. Great location and it is family and animal friendly. There is a lot of vibrancy to the property- some may say noisey or too much activity. I would disagree- a very upbeat atmosphere- it is not a place for a Vermont hide away - but a great place to go for a full Vermont experience.
One downside note- we learned that the old lodge is being torn down to make way for a conference center- presumably to help Topnotch compete with the new complex - Spruce Peak- that has been built on the top of the mountain. Topnotch is now corporately owned and no longer a family operation. Unfortunately- the "Mikey's" of the world are disappearing- even in Stowe Vermont
