About Ray Haarstick
Before purchasing Steps Away at Lodge at Spruce Peak (formerly Stowe Mountain Lodge), our crew was a big Sunday River family. However, once we experienced the easy drive and terrific après ski scene in Stowe we were hooked. So many wonderful activities to do when you're not on the slopes - hiking, snow shoeing, restaurants, shopping, concerts, bowling, movies, ... The Stowe area has it all! Come summer time, we enjoy golf, ziplining, obstacle course, tennis, on-premise concerts on the village green and at the Spruce Peak Arts Center, scenic drives and time in Burlington. Sailing on Lake Champlain is not to be missed.
Ray Haarstick purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Ray Haarstick chose Stowe Mountain Resort
After renting a home off Mountain Road, we wanted to be in the center of everything at Stowe Resort. Now if anyone needs some private time, they can relax in the condo while the rest of us enjoy an activity. The hospitality and convenience of Lodge at Spruce Peak is unrivaled when compared with other New England ski areas. Everything is well done from the moment you arrive: - car valets to park your car - bellmen to handle your luggage & equipment - streamlined check-in and -out process - concierge team for dinner reservations & activities - ski valet to mind your skis and snowboards - phenomenal shows at the Spruce Peak Arts Center - terrific ski school for your kids - outstanding on-premise dining options - relaxing spa and fitness center
What makes this Condo unique
As well as being "steps away" from all Stowe activities, our unit stands out for its: - Beautiful view of Mt. Mansfield and a portion of Smugglers Notch - Quiet location away from stairs, elevators, building equipment and pool noise - Upgraded amenities like our 55" living room television (for movie night), chef-outfitted kitchen and full-sized washer & dryer.

No doubt one of the best locations for a stress-free holiday in Stowe. A real gem of an apartment with fantastic views out to Mount Mansfield and seconds from the slopes. Fantastically equipped, clean and extremely comfortable this made for a wonderful break for all the family. Ray was incredibly helpful and quick to respond to any request - the addition of free access to the Fitness suite and Healing Lodge made this a true five star experience. Would thoroughly recommend!
Great amenities and perfect location for a family trip to ski Stowe.
Thanks, Elizabeth! We're certainly glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your next visit.
This spacious three bedroom condo in the Stowe Mountain Lodge is a perfect family get-away. We loved the ski-in/ski-out access to both Spruce and Mansfield Mountains. The more advanced skiers could easily rotate between skiing tough terrain, teaching the beginners on Adventure triple and relaxing in the condo. The convenient central location made rendezvousing for lunch together quite simple. Everyone loved topping off our days swimming from indoors into the heated outdoor pool and lounging in the outdoor hot tubs.
Ray was terrific and handled all our unexpected needs, ie an additional crib and extra cleaning, quickly and graciously. A family can’t go wrong with this choice.
Dottie, thanks for sharing your experience. I'm so glad your family had a great time!
To expand on the convenience you mentioned, Stowe Mountain Resort, and the Lodge at Spruce Peak (where Steps Away is located) has lots of great venues for a great meal.

Jan 2020 Stay
The property was beautiful, and exactly as described. The location is extremely convenient with a short walk to the Over Easy Gondola, and well situated to the ski valet, shops, pool and restaurants. Ray was very helpful and responsive throughout the process. We can’t wait to go back.
Michael, thanks for your review. And stressing how close Steps Away is to the ski valet and Over Easy gondola.
We do our best to keep our three-bedroom unit in tip-top shape for our tenants. This season, we've updated all the TVs, added a surround sound system, replaced the washer & dryer, and changed-out 100% of the linens.
We look forward to your next visit!
All the best,
Incredible stay with the nicest hosts
We had a wonderful stay at Stowe this weekend. The condo was spacious and perfectly located- our kids loved watching the gondolas go up and down the mountain. Our hosts were so kind, and very flexible- accommodating the needs of our young family. They responded immediately to any questions and requests. I cannot recommend staying here enough. You are in for a treat!
The entire Steps Away team is pleased you and your family had a great birthday weekend. Glad we could help out with the cribs and late check-out!
