Eco-friendly products and the purchase of power from renewable resources — these are standards for any hotel claiming green status. But Stowe Mountain Lodge goes well beyond the expected, beginning with its own environmental charter and its 110-million-gallon manmade Peregrine Lake, designed to help conserve water and maintain the health of local streams and rivers. Nestled at the base of Mount Mansfield within the historic Stowe Mountain Resort, the year-round lodge opened in 2008 and was built from materials such as locally quarried stone. It is the first mountain resort to win Audubon International's Sustainable Community award. And along with efforts such as a trolley system to reduce carbon emissions, it also boasts beautiful guest rooms, excellent New England dining, a full spa and wellness center and an eighteen-hole golf course, which received its own approval from Audubon in the form of Signature Sanctuary certification.
