Stowe Spa Goals

Hi! I am Megan, a Vermont Life & Style blogger over at Lil’ Vermont Adventures. I am so excited to share my take of Goal setting for the New Year which happens to involve one of my favorite spas in Stowe, The Spa at Topnotch Resort! My first visit to the Topnotch was for my mini moon many years ago, fast forward to today and we live in the gorgeous town of Stowe so I have become a resident expert on all things Spa in this amazing town


I am big on goal setting; I love the feeling of accomplishment when I reach my goals. I also don’t mind when I miss the mark on a goal because it teaches me something about myself. Maybe the goal was too ambitious and I should have broken it into smaller bite size pieces, or maybe my priorities throughout the year changed. There is no shame in setting out to do something and not quite hitting the mark.

There is one staple goal that I have had for myself over the past 7 years that I have always accomplished and that is to GO TO THE SPA FOUR TIMES A YEAR. Who doesn’t want to accomplish that?! I also find that by writing it down and setting the intention I receive the support of friends (who want to join in the fun), my spouse (who helps me with watching our boys), and family (who often buys me spa gift certificates for birthdays and holidays).


This December, I planned a spa day with three of my amazing Mom-friends in lieu of buying gifts for each other. I love gifting experiences because time with each other is often the best gift of all. We spent an amazing afternoon at the Topnotch Resort & Spa being pampered. We started our day dining in our bathrobes at The Roost which is always a personal favorite of mine. Then we enjoyed the mountain views from the hot tub, and heated pool. Finally we made our way to the steam rooms and ladies lounge before capping off the day with our individual treatments. We see each other every day running around town or taking our kids to daycare but the gift of time together to relax and enjoy each other’s company was truly what the spirit of the season is all about.


I tried the custom clinical facial which my esthetician catered to my dry winter skin. It was SO relaxing and left my skin incredibly smooth. What are you waiting for, go book that appointment for some R&R and treat yourself in the New Year to a fun filled day at the Top Notch Resort & Spa!
