You can ease some of your daily stress by visiting a spa on your next visit to Stowe, Vermont. Everyone carries stress in their bodies differently, and the variety of Stowe spas can help you calm your mind, body, and spirit in different ways on a path to your own ideal personal mental health and wellness. One such spa that will help you have the ideal self-care Vermont getaway is at our own Stowe Village Massage. There is no better way to unwind and to rest and recover than in the care of our amazing certified, professional massage therapists. Here are some of the ways Stowe Village Massage at The Green Mountain Inn can help you have a relaxing wellness Stowe getaway:

Massage Therapy

With a menu of techniques that include the basics like “Therapeutic “and “Deep Tissue” to the more specified like “Reiki” and “Shiatsu”, our massage therapists will help your body recover and relax in your choice of soothing treatment. The duration of your service varies depending on your choice of therapy from quick 30 minute treatments to longer 90-minute regimens.  Prices will vary depending upon the length of your session and desired service.

Body Treatments

If your idea of a retreat for health and wellness in Stowe does not involve the therapeutic massaging of these popular therapies, there are still other ways you can relax your body and soul. Exfoliate and renew with a choice of a salt or sugar body scrub or have a more hydrating body wrap that will leave you with smooth, glowing skin! Better yet, ask for the Stone Valley Massage Signature Treatment and receive both of these luxurious services during either a 90 or 120-minute therapeutic session!

These therapies do not need to be done solo. You can have a Spa Stowe getaway with your good friend, family member, or loved one and enjoy these treatments “side-by-side”.

The final vestiges of winter are upon us and soon the snow will begin to melt from our picturesque wooded wonderland. As the earth begins to dry and spring brings its slightly more mild temperatures to Stowe, Vermont, it signals the beginning of the sugaring season. During this time of the year, sugar makers begin to collect sap and boil it down until it thickens into the delicious Vermont maple syrup that we all know and love! Soon, it will be hard to find a restaurant in Stowe that does not include a little bit of maple sugar on its menu, as we take our syrup season quite seriously around these parts. So serious in fact that the Vermont Maple Open House weekend is one of the most anticipated events in Stowe in early spring.

It is quite an exciting time for us Vermonters and the Vermont Maple Open House Weekend is a perfect chance for you to discover some of the finest maple syrup being produced in our entire country. As the first crop of the Vermont maple sugar is being processed, many sugarhouses in our area open their doors to visitors to experience the maple magic firsthand. This year, these Vermont Maple Open House Stowe events will be taking place on both Saturday, March 21 and Sunday, March 22. Each sugarhouse that takes part in the open house weekend puts its own spin on the maple syrup festivities, from tours to tastings to mile-long walks through the wooded area where the sap is tapped! How you choose to experience your own personal Vermont Maple Sugar sojourn in Stowe is up to you! A few of the top sugar houses in the area to consider investigating are Nebraska Knoll Sugar Farm, a Stowe Maple Products, and the local favorite Trapp Family Lodge!

Don’t miss out on this chance to experience a truly authentic Vermont tradition. If you are traveling to the area for this sticky yet sweet weekend or any of the other events in Stowe this spring, book a room with us at The Green Mountain Inn.
