Resort Experience:
Mountainside at Stowe is pretty close to town and also close to skiing bases Mount Mansfiled and Spruce Peak. The units are all off a hilly main road, which was poorly plowed while we were there during two snowstorms. We had to leave our car part way up the hill two nights and walk to our unit carrying our toddler. Also, the units all have many stairs leading up to them, so be prepared -- pack light and don't plan to lug strollers, etc.

The units, however, were fine inside, with well-stocked kitchens, good appliances and linens, two TVs, and a fireplace. They're not luxurious or new looking, but they were truly ok. There's a nice indoor pool area. We paid $10/wk extra and rented a highchair. Laundry facilities were very limited (bad when everyone has wet, dirty ski clothes at the same time). There's not a lot to do at the resort itself, but the area is great.
