This is a music festival done right—think local and organic food, a luxury VIP area, and best of all: a killer setting on the charming Village Green surrounded by the cliffs of Mt. Mansfield, blanketed by a star-studded night sky. Plus, it’s all within walking distance to your room. We’ve got the insider’s scoop on how to make the most of this memorable weekend.
Friday, August 9
12:00 Arrive at the Lodge at Spruce Peak, settle into your Penthouse suite, and let the R&R begin.
1:00 Leave behind real life and transition into mountain mama mode: Grab lunch on the green during the quaint artisan’s market at the foot of Mansfield, while listening to local talent on stage. The taco truck— featuring local meat, garden herbs, and handmade corn tortillas—will rock your world.
3:00 Okay, real talk: We know Vermont is all about the food. Head to the Pavilion and take in a wine and cheese pairing class.
5:00 Pat yourself on the back for booking the perfect room. The Penthouse balconies are ideally situated, overlooking the festival grounds, so kick it and enjoy the view.
7:00 Off to your Chef’s Table reservation at Solstice for a five- course custom pairing menu. Beyond.
10:00 Nightcap at the Linehouse, Spruce Peak’s underground speakeasy. It’s lumberjack chic in the best possible way.
Saturday, August 10
7:00 Ambitious wake-up time for someone on vacation? Perhaps! But you’ll be so pumped to get your nature fix and run the Spruce Loop trails, we bet youwon’t even hit snooze.
9:00 Post-workout, grab breakfast and coffee at the Lounge at the Penthouses. Crack open the new Margaret Atwood…or post your Instagram story from yesterday’s highlights.
11:00 Facial plus massage at the Spa. We can’t even.
1:00 Now that you’re feeling blissed out from your rubdown, channel Gwyneth Paltrow with avocado toast and a green smoothie in the Spa’s relaxing Sanctuary overlooking the mountains.
2:00 Crank some tunes and get ready for the show. Style inspiration: Coachella meets Walden.
3:30 Crack open a Fiddlehead if you’re feeling hipster—or sip a glass of Whispering Angel rosé if you’re feeling bougie—on your private balcony while grooving to the opening act, Francesca Blanchard.
5:00 Hit up the Whistle Pig VIP Lounge, and rock out to Mipso and then the headliner, Milk Carton Kids (love that song, “Younger Years!”).
Sunday, August 11
9:00 Sleep in—you so deserve it!
10:00 What’s a better wake-up call than your daily cappuccino? Soar down Vermont’s highest peak on a zipline tour and make your kids jelly.
11:00 Time for your private golf lesson with director of golf Mike Hargar. If you can birdie at the Mountain Course, you’re basically Masters- ready.
12:00 After you sink your last putt, head to lunch at the Cottage. Tip: Sit on the porch where you can soak in mountain views and watch people tee off on ten.
2:00 Slip on your maillot for a dip in the pool—and a margarita, because hydration!
4:00 Between the private bar, passed desserts, swag bag, exclusive concierge service, and one-on- one face time with the performers, the VIP lounge is so
worth it. Wind down with a CBD- infused water while a dream team lineup of musicians caps off the weekend: Lowell Thompson’s up first, followed by Parsonfield and Shawn Colvin.
