For over 50 years, Stoweflake Mountain Resort and Spa in Stowe, Vermont, has been synonymous with the gracious hospitality of the Baraw family. Founded in 1963 by Beatrice and Stuart Baraw, Stoweflake has grown from a modest motel into one of Vermont’s premiere resort and spa destinations.

Under their son Chuck’s leadership and vision, Stoweflake has continually expanded and evolved to reflect the changing tastes of ever more sophisticated travelers. Today, our resort is comprised of 120 upscale guestrooms and suites, family-friendly townhouses, a 50,000 sq. ft. nationally acclaimed spa, state-of-the-art conference facilities, and two venues for dining.

Joining in the ownership and management of Stoweflake are members of the next generation of the Baraw family, Chuck’s daughter, Sheri, and nephew, Scot.

1948   Native Vermonter, Stuart Baraw, Sr. and wife, Beatrice, purchase three acres of pasture from the Gale Farm on the Mountain Road. Stu and Bea build a small cottage for weekend ski trips.

1950's   The Baraws build a series of additions onto the cottage, and add bunk beds to make room for family, friends and other ski enthusiasts.

1963   The Baraws move to Stowe permanently, and build a large, two-story structure with extra rooms for Bea to rent out. The new building consists of 20 guestrooms, a dining room and an apartment for Stu and Bea. The couple calls the place "Stoweflake" and the Inn opens!

Testimonials

"I will definitely recommend the Stoweflake Resort to any future AFLAC groups looking for a great destination/resort... and hope to have the opportunity to work with you again with another group."

The first thing you notice about the Stoweflake is the friendly welcoming staff that greets you upon arrival... and it is all uphill from there. My company has done several programs at the Stoweflake where we utilized the entire property and many of the ancillary services such as; kids camp, the spa, skiing and golf. The food at the Stoweflake is also something to rave about as the Chef uses seasonal items in many of the menus. Thank you so much for everything. Our events were a huge success thanks to your dedicated staff.

The Office of Continuing Medical Education with the University of Vermont has long enjoyed a professional relationship with the Stoweflake Resort and Conference Center. Function rooms are ample for seating a large number of attendees, while the smaller spaces are ideal for more intimate break-out sessions. The entire staff of the Stoweflake, including sales team, conference coordinators, reception and banquet personnel are welcoming, friendly, and accommodating, yet, professional at all times. The staff is knowledgeable and detail-oriented and is extremely adept at anticipating our individual conference needs at every turn. Across all spectrums, these capable individuals instill a level of confidence for meeting planners that all aspects of the conference will be handled appropriately.
