Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Eagle Resort at Stowe
Great value, nice property.
A great value. We stayed in the least expensive room; it was clean and nicely decorated. Very nice grounds; my 3-year old enjoyed the playground, and the indoor pool and jacuzzi were great-very clean. I thought the location was ideal. We had a very relaxing trip to Stowe, it was a quiet time, early September. I hope to go back and would definitely stay at the Golden Eagle Resort again.
Our Fall Foliage Place
We have been staying at the Golden Eagle Resort every Fall since 1970.
All the Staff,Top to Bottom are Great. We usually stay 4 or 5 Nights.
The Location is perfect,it's only a few minutes walk into the Village.

We just recently returned from our 4th stay at the resort. The place is wonderful, even though you are far from home the people make you feel welcome and extremely comfortable. The breakfasts are excellent and the staff at the colonial cafe take an interest in you and make you feel like family. It is very well priced and a definate find in the beautiful mountains of Stowe, VT.
Nice, easy going
We spent time there over the July4th holiday 2003. The rooms were clean and we were given a free upgrade without even asking, to a bigger room which I felt for the money should have been ours in the first place but don't go to Stowe if your not prepared to over pay for things. The location was great.We were able to walk across the street to be right under the fireworks, the place is large with small ponds everywhere. We were up visiting family who lived nearby and this was the place they picked for us. Apparantly for Stowe it's a good value. They were very friendly and didn't seem to have the "if you don't like it you can just leave" attitude that unfortunately is very prevelant in Stowe.
Good Value - Not Ritzy
This place is defnitely a throwback to the old style motor inn. My wife and I booked one of the suites with a fireplace and whirlpool tub. The fireplace was wood burning and defintely added charm to the room. We were expecting a full size jacuzzi/hot tub and instead had the jetted tub - nice, but not quite the same. The breakfast that came with the package was outstanding. The room itself overlooked one of the ponds on the grounds. All in all I'd have to say neutral. I expected a bit more from the room, but overall was happy with the accommodations and the staff. If you paid for one of the standard rooms, I think this would be a value.
Golden Eagle hard to beat
My family has stayed at the Golden Eagle on several occasions, in all seasons, over a number of years. Even at the busiest times, we have found the accommodations comfortable and the staff welcoming, competent and responsive to our needs. For convenience of location and quality of hospitality, the Golden Eagle would be hard to beat in Stowe.
The Golden Eagle Soars!
We have stayed at the Golden Eagle Motel several times, most recently over Memorial Day Weekend in May 2002. The rooms are outstanding with excellent views, very comfortable beds, and excellent service. Breakfast is excellent, in the Vermont style with choices ranging from hotcakes to vegetarian egg beater omelettes.
In addition to the amenities, the location of the resort can not be beat ....only a few minutes down the road to downtown Stowe, very close to Stowe's movie theatre, and close to numerous hiking, biking and cross skiing trails. Mt. Mansfield is a few miles up the road which has some of the greatest skiing in the East, but is beautiful year round....
The best value in Stowe
If you're staying in Stowe, my family has found the Golden Eagle to be the best location and value-close to the village, but convenient to the Mountain with extremely comfortable rooms and all the amenities you could ask for. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. We always have a wonderful stay there, but book ahead... It's a very a popular spot.
Stowe: Golden Eagle Resort Dishonest
Several years ago my family and I had been looking forward to a week-long ski vacation in Stowe during the Holidays. We had booked two of the best rooms at the Golden Eagle Resort almost six months ahead of time and confirmed these reservations several times afterwards. Upon arriving in Stowe after a several hour drive, we were informed that no rooms were available for us. Our information was in the computer including our credit card number, but for some reason our reservations had never been "officially" registered in the computer. Needless to say, it was extremely difficult to find another place to stay during the x-mas break up in Stowe and I am convinced our reservation was given away to some VIP willing to pay more. Never stay at the Golden Eagle Resort!
Charming and Hospitable
Stayed at the Golden Eagle several years ago with my family (2 adults/2 children), but still remember it well. The room was comfortable and charming, the indoor swimming pool/spa area was lovely, the restaurant was very accommodating, and the staff could not have been more helpful. The Stowe area was also very charming and less crowded than many areas in Vermont such as Killington. We usually go to Colorado in the winter, but this year we may go back to Stowe and will gladly stay at the Golden Eagle again.

Upon leaving Maine, we were treated to some of the most amazing color! New Hampshire is just a beautiful state. It is very hilly and has a few mountains! (which we have missed) It rained very hard the entire drive. We stopped at Grafton Notch State Park and went to see Screw Auger Falls. They were torrential with the pouring rain. The view was worth the good soaking that we caught walking out to them. We stayed ...

A spokesperson for the village said, the kookier and brighter the outfit, the better. Villagers put these “leaf people” out at the autumn equinox and they attract visitors to the village.

The railway is the world’s first climbing cog railway and also the world’s second steepest. At one point the grade is 37.41%, Truckers start to get nervous with grades over 7%. The ride to the summit covered a vertical rise of about 3,500’.
