For couples who... enjoy mountain escapes
STOWEFLAKE MOUNTAIN RESORT & SPA
Year-round, Mother Nature seriously struts her stuff at Stoweflake. Besides flowers in spring, green fields in summer, fiery colors in fall, and downy piles of snow in winter, this resort offers a huge spa, hearty eats, and a cute-as-a-button village nearby.
Ease away pregnancy jitters with a Marvelous Motherhood treatment (a body peel, facial mask, and massage). Lounge in the spa's solarium listening to the rush of an indoor waterfall while staring toward Mount Mansfield and its foothills just up the road. Pop by Laughing Moon Chocolates, or drive a half hour to the Ben and Jerry's Factory Tour in Waterbury. They need your taste-testing skills, right?
Details: Rates start at $199 per room. Mention "American Baby" to receive 20 percent off weekday spa treatments.
