There are so many things that keep us busy in our daily lives that we don’t always make the time for our most significant other. Date nights can become more infrequent, and conversations with your partner seem to only revolve around the demands of every day. From work to family – and everything else in between – it’s easy for couples to forget the importance of taking the time to invest in their relationship.
Topnotch Resort in beautiful Stowe, Vermont is the ideal destination for a getaway to spend quality time together without any of the usual distractions. This luxury boutique hotel, nestled in the lush, Vermont mountainside hosts an abundance of opportunities for couples to have fun together, simply relax, and reawaken romance. This charming resort, surrounded by a 120-acre wooded estate, is fitting for a serene and intimate retreat. Book a fabulous stay in one of Topnotch Resort’s luxury guest rooms and where each well-appointed room is designed with relaxation in mind.
How you spend time with your one-and-only is entirely up to you. Topnotch Resort boasts world-class service and amenities, including a 35,000 square feet award-winning spa facility, indoor and outdoor pools, and fabulous dining options, so it’s possible to enjoy a day of activities or lounging with your sweetheart without ever leaving the grounds.
Topnotch Resort’s Fitness Center is a great place to get balanced in a private yoga class for two led by one of the resort’s experienced instructors. The combination of postures, breathing exercises, and meditation helps to create a shared experience of relaxation and self-care. Couples Yoga is a great way to develop teamwork in a fun and relaxed way, establishing an embodied connection that naturally allows the opportunity to breathe together and to remember the deep connection between them. Melisa Oliva, Soulful Yoga teacher at Topnotch Resort, explains that this session is, “A very relaxing activity to share that can also connect couples on a deeper level, and create a bond that helps couples to become a team for life.”
For the active couple, take a scenic bike ride together on the Stowe Recreation Path. With an entrance to this 5.3-mile paved trail at Topnotch Resort, this pathway provides a beautiful journey with mountain views and access to galleries and shops in nearby Stowe Village. Upon returning from your ride, enjoy a light lunch and a refreshing craft brew, or signature cocktail, at Topnotch Resort’s The
Roost lobby bar and restaurant.
If adding more love in your relationship is on your itinerary, enjoy a friendly tennis match. Topnotch Resort is home to four, year-round indoor tennis courts, and six outdoor courts, as well as an on-site pro shop for any tennis gear need. The newly refurbished
facilities are a great place to improve your doubles game, or for just an easygoing match with your partner.
Adjacent to the tennis courts are Topnotch Resort’s two outdoor pools with mountain views – one of which is heated year-round. Take a quick dip or a swim a few laps, before retreating to a deck chair to admire the mountains. Or, take your darling’s hand and stroll
over to the solarium, which houses the indoor pool, and sink into the hot tub with cascading waterfall that is surrounded by a wrap-around window located inside.
For the maximum in calm and tranquility, reserve a Side-by-Side Couple’s Massage in a fireplace suite at the resort’s
spa. Unwind in a hot sauna or steam room, then indulge in a 65-minute Swedish, Combo or Aroma Mountain Massage. Let the resort’s talented massage therapists alleviate all muscle tension and lull you both into a state of complete serenity.
In the evening, enjoy a savory dinner with a view of the mountains at Topnotch Resort’s Flannel restaurant. Treat yourselves with a meal made with fresh, locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients. With dishes such as Raviolo Gigante, made with housemade Ricotta Raviolo or a Flannel Burger topped with cheddar fresh from Vermont’s Jasper Hill Farm, the chefs at Flannel will make your dining
experience one that adds just a little more piquancy to your already splendid day.
After dinner, create a souvenir of your memorable weekend at one of the Paint Nite events hosted by Topnotch Resort. Unlock your inner artists and share an unforgettable experience as Paint Nite Vermont guides you through painting a one-of-a-kind work of art. With your completed masterpieces in hand, retreat to the patio to cozy up next to each other by one of the outdoor fire pits. Toast with a nightcap to celebrate rekindling the romantic side of your relationship.
It’s never too late to plan the perfect escape to Topnotch with your beloved. Spend meaningful time with each other and fall in love all over again.
