Northern Lights Lodge is clean and comfortable and the owners are friendly and accommodating. The deluxe rooms are spacious. We had a great time in the pool, hot tub and sauna. Breakfast was delicious and freshly made. There is plenty of space outdoors to enjoy the amazing natural beauty that Vermont has to offer. We will definitely be booking a longer stay on our next trip to Vermont!

Nice Lodge with all the amenities at a reasonable mid week rate. Booked the efficiency apartment along the river. Had to walk outside to get to main hotel for pool and breakfast. I didn't mind since weather was beautiful but probably not something I would like to do in winter or rain. In that event I would book in main lodge. Nice homemade muffins at breakfast as well as traditional buffet fare. Would have liked peanut butter for toast as I'm a vegetarian and don't eat the eggs or bacon.

My husband and I stayed for one night in the economy rooms. The Room were small but perfect size for us! The are was beautiful. It was nice to sit by the river in the morning and read for a little bit. The room and amenities were nice and clean. Service was great. Best of all....the delish full spread breakfast. We will definitely stay an Northen Lights Lodge again.

Northern Lights Lodge is one of our favorite places away from home. It is always clean and homey. Mike and Shannon are always welcoming and eager to help with whatever we need. The lodge is conveniently located and they serve a great breakfast buffet which is included in the cost of your stay. We love it here!

My wife and I decided to return to Stowe for a couple of days. We had been to the area 30 years ago and really loved the area at that time. When we stayed, this location was the Salzburg Inn and did have more to offer their guest but times do change. The lobby was unchanged after all those years. The current owners(Michael & Shannon) are the perfect choice for this location. They were easy to communicate with and answered our questions about current day Stowe. The breakfast buffet was excellent. When you leave the lodge for your outdoor activities, having a great breakfast will help. The rooms have had some upgrades but still have the charm that makes this place a must return destination. Dinners in the Village of Stowe are great with a good number of establishments open year round. There are a few attractions within a twenty minute drive for the Lodge. Cold Hollow Cider Mill, try the hard cider, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, take the tour, Stowe Maple Products, sample all the syrups. Also, don't forget to take the gondola to the Cliff House on Mt Mansfield, you will not believe the view. The Lodge also has an indoor or outdoor pool and hot tub to relax in after your long hikes.

Northern Lights Lodge was a great place to stay. We happened to be there during the big snow storm in March and had a nice experience. Since this was their off season, we were able to extend our stay in order to stay off the roads. The owners were very nice and knowledgeable of the area.
4.6 on March 14, 2017
This is one of the least expensive places to stay in Stowe. Close to the mountain, big room, nice pool, hot tub, and sauna, and a good, large, complimentary breakfast. We would definitely recommend it and stay there again.

We stayed at Northern Lights Lodge one night on our trip. The lodge is nice with a rustic flavor. Our room which was a deluxe in the main lodge was very roomy. The home cooked breakfast the next morning was delicious and is included in your room price. There is a very nice river in the back with chairs to sit and enjoy the scenery. We arrived early but we were able to check in as our room was ready.

Michael and Shannon are amazing hosts. After suffering an allergic reaction to a new carpet smell, we were moved to a new room without any additional charges. Michael even helped us move our luggage and brought me medicine. The remainder of our stay went without a hitch. The facilities are clean and comfortable and the homemade breakfasts complete with blueberry pancakes, scones and muffins and delicious Green Mountain coffee were a most welcome and appreciated start to our days. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Northern Lights Lodge and highly recommend it. Thanks Michael and Shannon and best wishes on the birth of your baby. Jean

Family of 5 stayed here for 1 night. You can tell hard wrong people own this property. It was very clean, just outdated. My children loved that they could sleep in bunk beds in a hotel. Pool and hot tub were both very clean. No complaints...just outdated.

Very nice location, the place is very clean and the rooms are very good; the furniture and the hallway may need some refurbishing, not much though; the price is OK; the breakfast pretty good, especially local products; and the service and people amazing. All together, it was a very good experince. I warmly recommend it, especially if there are any deals or packages. Will return! Thank you and regards from Montreal.

I returned to the Northern Lights Lodge and it is still a great place to stay in Stowe Vermont. If you are someone that wants a luxurious place with fancy rooms, towels, and toiletries you won't like it here. Go somewhere else in Stowe. If you want a place with totally decent, very clean, basic rooms, a great buffet breakfast (blueberry pancakes, scrambled eggs, breakfast meat, fresh muffins, endless coffee, cereal), close to the mountain, good wifi, at a very fair price, then stay here. The owners couldn't be nicer or more pleasant. The cookies in the afternoon are a nice touch. The pool is warm. There was nothing more I needed (except for maybe a better reading light). If you stay here, you too may be someone who returns for another visit.

Great value. Inkeepers are friendly, responsive to guest needs and provide knowledge of the area to provide a great experience. The breakfast that's included was a GREAT perk and was prepared fresh that morning. Was very happy with my stay here and will likely stay here again next year for foliage season if I find myself planning in the area.

For Labor Day this year we stayed at this hotel. It should be 5 stars all around. Cleanest place we have ever been, the owners are the sweetest, the breakfast outstanding, the only downside was that we only stayed for one night, next time we want to go for a week. Keep up the good work guys, God Bless you!

Close to the best hiking trails and scenic route in Stowe, VT. The owner Michael and Shannon were very kind, caring and helpful in giving information of surrounding area like where to go, small trails, waterfalls etc. Would definitely plan to stay in this lodge if planned in future. Thanks !

Very surprised by the Lodge. While the hallways reminded us of summer camp, the room was clean, large, and comfortable. And the breakfast, WOW, what a great breakfast they served each day. Definitely will return.
3.4 on September 27, 2014
Door on room did not fit. There was a space of about 2.5 inches from door bottom to floor which allow light and noise from hallway to enter room at night. Told this to desk and was told it was due to shifting of building during weather changes, however, you could see where the door had been cut on bottom. The other doors were not like this. Also cleaning staff left door open one day.

Great place to get away with my sons.

The outside can do with some upgrading, because you get one impression when driving by the lodge and another when you go inside. The room we stayed in was comfortable and clean. The owners were very friendly and the breakfast was very good, a lot better than the chain hotels we have stayed in the past. We would stay at the lodge again.

Decided out of the blue to take a trip to VT as we are in love with this beautiful state. I had never stayed here before but the price was right, it was in the area we wanted and it was available. We arrived late but were greeted by one of the owners. When we got to our room the lights were already on which was nice. The beds were comfortable although the pillows went flat when you put your head on them. The room was larger than expected which was nice too. We are now in the 21 century and this little place isn't very tech friendly. There weren't outlets by the bed to plug in our ebooks, we had to unplug the lights from the extention cord to plug in our electronics and the wifi was slower than 3G. I did notice dust in places that should be cleaned regularly and the molding around the rooms, doors, windows was in disrepair. Breakfast was absolutely DELICIOUS! Everyone we ran into that worked there was very helpful and friendly.

We stayed at this hotel on August 22nd. All the hotels around were full capacity because of freshmans' arrival weekend. We had a renovated room (only the bathroom was "renovated"). Matresses are too soft, pillows are too thin, small flat screen, very good service from the front desk. We did not used the pool/jacuzzi- not privante enough (guests have to go through the pool's little bridge to access a part of the hotel). Breakfast was ok.

My son and I had only 1 day to spend at Northern Lights Lodge though we wished it could have been longer. We were made to feel at home as soon as we checked in. Our room was easy to find and were pleased to find it so clean. The beds had crisp white linens and beautiful quilts. The bathroom was immaculate. My son used the indoor pool, sauna and hot tub in the evening and was impressed how clean everything was. Breakfast was outstanding! Such a variety and so delicious a meal. When we go back to the Stowe area this is where we'll be staying. If you want a clean, homey, wonderful place to stay this is it! Thank you Michael and Shannon. You're doing a great job.

I booked this hotel for 2 night stay during an event at Stowe. The room was clean. Service was fantastic. Hot breakfast served every morning was great. They even accommodated for the group of us staying for the event by serving breakfast 15 minutes earlier than usually to allow us plenty of time in the morning to get to the mtn on time. I did not use the pool, hot tub or sauna during my stay but would have if I had more time. Would definitely book here again if my travels bring me back to the area.

Great place to stay in Stowe! The room was beautiful and comfortable. It's nice and close to the mountain and conveniently located to the shopping center in Stowe. The pool and hot tub were very relaxing. Breakfast was a tasty buffet style with good variety. I would recommend this place and visit again!

My wife and I recently celebrated our 10th anniversary at Northern Lights Lodge. It was Jan 23-26. Lots of snow. Inn was very cozy and friendly. Can't say enough about the innkeepers. They did everything possible to help make our stay memorable. The room and bath were basic - but exceptionally clean. Hot tub and indoor heated pool - which were also very clean were great after a cold day outside. Hot breakfast was great each morning. We wanted a place that was comfortable, a little rustic but not pretentious. This is it. This inn offers great value. Great for romantic weekend or family vacation. Inn was far enough out of town to feel isolated, but a short drive to most everything we wanted to do. I would have preferred to not have a light right outside the room at night, but everything else was so nice - not worth worrying about.
3.4 on March 23, 2012
The pool, sauna, and Jacuzzi were great amenities that helped make the price worth it! The breakfast buffet was great as well. I stayed in the "motel" building (something I wasn't aware of when I booked my room), and the rooms are merely okay. I assume the rooms in the main building are nicer. The room was my least favorite part of my stay, but luckily Stowe had so much to offer that I only returned to the room sleep.

A great place to spend some time, whether it be autumn or winter. Friendly and helpful hosts provided a hearty breakfast to start the day. The pool was a bonus on our stay. The nearby rec trail made for good, safe and easy walking.
3.2 on September 06, 2011
The new owners are making improvements but our room was quite comfortable and the river side location was so relaxing. I'm glad I brought my travel hair dryer as there was not one in the room. Also would have liked a small coffee/hot water pot in the room as we like an evening cup of tea. The breakfast was very nice, but essentially the same every day. I'm borderline diabetic and would have liked more protein variety - yogurt and/or cottage cheese, peanut butter.
2.8 on September 05, 2011
I will start with the good comments. The innkeepers are very friendly and helpful. They are working very hard to keep the place. The inside pool is clean and new, the sauna is a good feature (although it smells weird). The location is good and the price decent. However, the rooms and the place are very old. It smells old and you see spiders everywhere. The breakfast was very disapointing for us. I was surprised to read the other reviews. it was very basic and the choices were limited. We might have higher standard about food in bed and breakfast because we experienced much better. It was closer to a a standard hotel breakfast buffet.

I was looking for a very affordable but nice/clean place for a 3 day get-away in Vermont. The Northern Lights Lodge was just perfect for what I was looking for. As others on your site have described it, it was an older place, newly renovated, nice furnishings, and CLEAN...an important criterion for me!!! The inside pool was very clean, but the hot tub was not available for use. Since it was during the off-season, breakfast was not served as a buffet, but as a made-to-order meal. The inn keepers, Michael and Shannon were very nice. The only down side--they were not always as accessible as I (and others) would have liked. They were off doing other jobs at the inn, but an intercom button usually summoned them quickly. Again, I suspect it was because I was there during the off-season. It is nestled in beautiful surroundings with the spectacular mountain views all around. It is conveniently located to both Stowe and Waterbury. I would definitely stay there again.

The lodge is located between Stowe and mountain view trail, very quiet, room is ok, more than we expected with such low price. New owner Mich is nice, he was busy trying to renew the place, and we enjoyed very much the breakfast. Thank you Mich

We stayed at Northern Lights Lodge for one night while skiing at Stowe. This was perfect in the morning as we were very close to the downtown area along with the mountain. When we arrived, they had apple cider and cookies in the lobby. The owners are very friendly and super helpful. We did not have a DVD player in our room, so they went out of there way to find one for us. Breakfast was very well prepared and everything was hot and fresh! Would def stay here again!

I visited Stowe for a PSIA Professional Skiing Instructors of America skiing event. Mainly picked the Northern Lights based on cost, as I was only looking for a place to rest my head for one night. I got more then I paid for! Inn keeper Michael meet me at the registration desk, he was very friendly and knowledgeable with the area. They upgrade my room to the main building which had a King size bed and plenty of room. The main building also housed the pool and spa, if I was still traveling with little ones they would have found the pool entertaining and fun as it is split by the hallway/walkway to the lobby and breakfast area by a bridge. My room included breakfast, which was served fast and hot. The breakfast chef Brian made me a combo breakfast of eggs bacon and waffles which helped me get through a day of skiing. Also available was fresh fruit and homemade muffins! Michael also shared with me his views on the environment and their plans for upgrading the lighting to low energy fluorescents and LED bulbs. I would recommend to anyone to stay at Northern Lights for 1 night or 7.
3.2 on March 04, 2011
I spoke to someone on the phone there before arriving, and they did emphasize that the annex rooms were 'cozy', so I expected what we got in terms of size. Let me lead by saying that the people there are delightful, and the breakfast was big and delicious. Just be aware that the annex building is old-ish, you can hear your neighbor's plumbing through the walls, and the amenities are basic.

The food was excellant.(complementry full hot breakfast) The innkeepers (husband & wife) personally made sure that every request that i made was addressed. (actually they handled all the requests themselfs) Indoor swimming pool was brand new. Room i stayed in was just completely remodeled. 26 direct tv stations on flat screen tv was great just to relax after day of skiing. Offered a late check out to 4:00pm for $20.00. (my stay was midweek) Was able to come back from skiing at 2:30pm day of departure on the stowe shuttle bus (also picks up from lodge 5 minute ride to spruce peak) use hot tub & take shower for the 4 & 1/2 hour ride home to Torrington ct. one down fall is room did not have a phone in it (which was fine with me. Although cell phone service inside the rooms is very week. I use at&t. Need to stand near window in room to keep call from dropping. Cell service is better in dining,pool & common area's.

This Lodge had really nice new owners / management who recently initiated a program to update the entire facility. Place was very clean, family oriented, breakfeast in morning was good. Atmosphere was like throw-back from the 1950s when people went to such lodges with thier families on driving vacations sat in the lounge, played card, etc.; The re-update program makes the place a really great value and the are on the way to moving throughout the facility for a full update. I would defintely recommend the place and go again, and you can tell the owners / management really care. About 2-3 miles down the road from Stowe entrance, really close.

My wife and I stayed at the Northern Lights for British Invasion Weekend. We had a great stay. The rooms were impeccably clean, albeit a bit dated, but the innkeepers hospitality more than made up for that, and the breakfast was out of this world. We will defiitely return.
