Quote: This was our first time we visited Stowe in May and it was a wonderful time for a vacation. We had beautiful weather and since the peak season had not officially begun, we didn't have problems with crowds! Stowe truly is shedding it's image as a winter destination.

One highlight of this trip to Stowe was spending a few days with our friends. Since we were able to secure a three-bedroom timeshare, we had extra room and invited some friends to vacation with us. It was very enjoyable to relax, see a few sights, play tennis together, and go out to dinner with our friends. Before our friends arrived, my wife made of list of things to do while they were visiting us. Her intention was to write down the possibilities. However, the rest of us kept teasing her that she was trying to kill us with her long list of about 25 things. She kept insisting that it was just a menu for our friends to choose from. She had quite a list though I did like the eat, drink...Read More

I have stayed at this resort several times in the past but this is the first time that I had a three-bedroom. This is also the first time that I stayed at the resort in May which was a much more enjoyable experience than when I stayed in the hot summer! The rooms are quite adequate and there are only about 10 condo units per bui...Read More

Restaurant | "Emily's"

I cannot rave enough about this restaurant. Ironically, I had always previously thought that if a restaurant had few patrons, it probably wasn’t that great. For the first hour or so, we were the only diners, but it was wonderful. The food was great, the waiter was very attentive, the views were fantastic, etc. The dining room itself is very country atmosphere with lots of pine, sturdy tables and chairs, and country style lamps. I believe the ceiling had exposed beams. Also the tables were large so we weren’t hitting elbows with each other and even if all the tables were occupied, there was enough spacing between tables so you had some privacy. As for the food, everything was WONDERFUL....Read More

Restaurant

I liked Charlie B’s Pub so much that we returned the next evening (with two friends in tow). And we were tempted to return the third evening. The food and atmosphere was wonderful. There was so much to like about this restaurant such as: The décor: We ate in the octogon room that had a large cupola ceiling. High on the walls was the 360 mural of the balloon festival scenes. Around the room were six large booths that each could seat six people easily so we were not crowded at all. In addition, there were a few tables in the middle. The food: The menu offered a large selection of entrees and also had an excellent wine list. Everything we ordered was delicious. The Seafood Diab...Read More

Stowe Country Club

Attraction

I was able to play golf at the Stowe Country club twice during our stay. Both times, I was able to get a tee time to my liking and was paired up with other players so I didn’t have to play as a single. Whenever staying in Stowe, this is the place to play golf. There are great views of the valley so you could consider it a very scenic golf course. There are some sand traps (though sand was just being put in that week) and a few ponds but water is not a factor. With that said, I find the course to be challenging course but not impossible. Another plus is the fact that the course was not crowded during the week, which makes for fast play. It is so much enjoyable to golf when...Read More
