The intimate theater space allows the audience to experience exclusive performances in close proximity to the performers.
The Spa and Wellness Center at Stowe Mountain Lodge will launch a KidSpa in December 2010, dedicated to providing fun and simplistic spa services to children of all ages. The KidSpa was developed as a response by guests who requested their children be incorporated into their spa experience. Offering services including kid’s manicure and pedicures and temporary tattoos, the KidSpa will not only provide parents with additional children entertainment options, but it will also allow kids to stop, breathe and re-sensitize to their surroundings. These services, or “Kid Rituals”, will be provided to children ages 5-14 year old and last between 45-60 minutes. All elements of their treatment will be available for sale at the KidSpa so parents can recreate the treatments at home.
