The Unique Homes staff is currently busy visiting two luxury developments to bring you exclusive On Location coverage in our upcoming editions, and right here on our blog. Writer Camilla McLaughlin reports that she may be experiencing the best service she’s ever seen,  and “the best tacos of my life” at The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain (above). The property includes a RitzCarlton Hotel (which is the only hotel in Southern Arizona that has a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Rating), spa amenities, a 45,000-square-foot clubhouse complex, 27 holes of Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf and over 25 miles of hiking and horseback riding trails, all within minutes to Tucson.

Meanwhile, Managing Editor Mark Moffa is off to Spruce Peak at Stowe (below), to check out the completion of its highly anticipated $90 million Village Center development. The luxury alpine community is the only resort in the Northeast with ski-in/ski-out residences, a 21,000-square-foot spa, a 450-seat performance center, an award-winning Bob Cupp-designed golf course, and 30,000-square-foot Adventure Center with rock-climbing walls and a world-class children’s Ski and Ride School. Spruce Peak at Stowe is located at the base of the tallest mountain in Vermont, and is surrounded by 2,000 acres of preserved wildlife habitat. Branding itself the “Aspen of the East,” Spruce Peak claims to offer a luxury residential and ski experience unparalleled by other New England destinations.
